For well over a year now, I’ve had trouble with this app not working with my system. It won’t always close my garage and when it does, it takes two or more times for my system to receive a signal from the app to actually close it. One time, I used the app to close my garage and after I left the house, the garage opens on its own. It also tries to tell me that the garage is open when it isn’t. The ability to even toggle the garage open or closed sometimes disappears on the app. My regular garage remote is way more reliable. Can’t remember the number of times I’ve been out of town and I get a false reading that my garage is open when it isn’t. This morning, the garage wouldn’t close at all from the app after numerous attempts.

Gives me false notifications all the time including multiple notifications for one action. For example, when I open any of my doors, it gives me numerous notifications for that one door opening. It also occasionally gives me false readings on the battery charge in my front door panel. I’ve been on the phone numerous times with Vivint about these issues and troubleshooted it many times with Vivint to no success. They have replaced my control panel at least twice assuring me it would fix everything. It didn’t fix anything. The same problems persist. It’s making me seriously question whether or not I’m going to renew my contract with Vivint.

*Edit #2* Orientation on iPad


Is there a reason that the app is not compatible with landscape mode on an iPad? It would be great to use it as a secondary touchscreen mounted in another room of the house. All of my other smart home apps have the ability to work in portrait or landscape mode. Please work on this, Vivint.

Thanks for fixing the issue I stated below regarding the cropped screen. Not sure yet about the Nest functionality. I updated the panel to 3.10 so I’ll have to give it a few more days or weeks before I can tell. I’m glad you guys added support on the app and the panel for Philips Hue lights but what about adding it for the Apple Watch? Any idea when this might be updated?? Thanks in advance!

I’m pretty sure the “fix” you guys did for the iPhone X has caused an issue with the resolution on all other iPhones. Whenever I pull up a camera now, the image is lowered at the top and cut off at the bottom. Please fix this for users who haven’t made the leap to the X. Also, I consistently lose connectivity to my Nest. I have talked to tech support and performed a reboot on the Sky Panel at least 6 times and it will work for a few weeks and then stop. It’s not my WIFI.

App is great when system functions correctly


We absolutely love the app when the Vivint system is functioning correctly. Mainly the video doorbell constantly stops working and the Sky Panel has to be rebooted to get the video functioning again which is very annoying. Technicians have been out several times, get it working only for it to stop working again sometimes hours, days or weeks later. My guess is that the Skye panel itself may need updating because my internet/WiFi works excellently. Only this time, the video is working on the Sky Panel but not on the app. So this issue may be a problem with the app. Also, we have a 2nd indoor camera that never worked after the technicians left our home. It may stay on 30 mins or less then goes offline. I think that Vivint needs to update all video components to their system. The remaining components are stable and works perfectly. We receive a lot of package deliveries which is why we need the video doorbell to work consistently. We love the system but may consider switching to a different company that can offer comparable services on a more stable system.
