**App Feature Request** avoided potential break-in!
This app is great for notifying me when someone approaches my front door. Just today, a stranger approaches my front door, knocks on it, and then checks the door knob and walks off! It would be great to have recorded more than 30 seconds of his activity. I can only see him walking up to the door from his truck nor can I see him getting back into his truck. Luckily I was able to check my phone while I was at work and watched him walk around the side of my house and then leave; he was in and out in under 40 seconds. Please allow us to either record 24/7 or to extend the motion detected recording time for; 45s, 60s, 90s, and allow us to manually turn on video recording when we see suspicious activity taking place. More great features would be an emergency contact option like the ones on the sky panel and local weather like on the sky panel. Also, I found a bug in the app that caused me not to be able to speak to this potential criminal because the microphone button was not visible, it might have something to do with my wife viewing the same camera live at the same time. Thank you so much Vivint!!!
Great app but....
the actual monitoring is a different story. App is simple and user friendly but does lack any of the options or functionality the the wall unit has. In fact i find the app is easier to use than the wall monitoring unit or control panel and think that the panel should be eliminated since it only gives a perpetrator something to either break or make the homeowner deactivate. Something much harder to do since the perp would not want the homeowner to even have their phone when committing the crime and most likely take the phone away so turning the alarm off would be impossible to do. Service from the company on the other hand is not impressive as i have yet to ever get a follow up call once the alarm has been tripped. So if your looking for an unmonitored alarm system with some pretty good modern technology then this system is right for you. Keep in mind it will be extremely expensive since this "unmonitored" system still comes at a monitored price with payment due every month for like ten years! Seriously.
This app works flawlessly. In response to the one user's statement about lag when setting from the car: this is a wifi issue and not the app. I will notice this from time to time myself when arming for the night with the app and the delay is ALWAYS due to wifi needing refreshed. The panel is "online" itself and not on private wifi. Changing to cellular data on your mobile device, especially if you're in the fringe zone of your wifi coverage, and giving your mobile device a second or two to catch its breath will overcome the extensive delay mentioned. Sometimes rebooting my mobile device is the cure. Technology is a wonderful thing if you can truly harness its abilities.
App works as advertised and without issues. Keep in mind, the issue isn't with your system per say, you'll find proper wifi/cell data use will enhance your experience. I'm not just a Vivint user, I also work directly with wifi/data connections in my profession.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
