Ratings and Reviews
Although This app does not work at the moment I love my smart drive!! Playback is in the main vivint app now so no need for Vivint playback. Mine has been working great for about 5 years now! Every update increased its speed so now I can quickly slide and see a bunch of still images during that time. It used to take forever to load. The baking up of pics I thought was a good idea and also thought it was only in beta. Backed up 1k photos so far. Took about an hour to do that when this app worked. I back up several of my computers onto the drive itself and it is WAY FASTER than over the internet backups! Yes it may take some time for it to back up itself to online but that’s what it’s designed to do. I would gladly pay twice as much as I do now for the 24/7 video recording on all of my outdoor cams as well as computer backups!!! I don’t know what these people are saying about “Vivint scam”. I googled and read out dated info as well as customers who didn’t give the Smart Home Pros a chance to fix anything that was wrong. I had a SHP and he was AWESOME! Ask for a Pro and one will come!
Great idea, but does not deliver
The issue with this device is it requires you to use their software that really only supports uploading photos. Unlike iCloud that can connect to several applications to store different types of data, like word and excel, vivint drive only connects to their app and this app is crap! If I walked around with a computer I could connect to the vivint drive and store files through the online website, but if you use an iPad or iPhone your pretty much limited to only storing photos. I do not travel with a laptop and I use my iPad or iPhone so the Vivint drive is a waste of money for me. I wish I never signed up for it.
Not So Smart Drive
I’ve had this thing plugged in for three years and I am just now figuring out what it is about. I thought it was saving the video clips from my doorbell camera. Not! I wish I hadn’t purchased it. I have been trying to backup my photos and videos to it for three days now. If you open another app while it is backing up, it will stop. No one wants their phone hijacked indefinitely during this process. The app is now frozen and will not even open anymore. I can delete the app and download it again I guess. Pretty sure that whatever I paid for this device was more than it is worth!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
