What is Vivint for Business?

Vivint for Business is a security solution designed for small businesses. It uses the same equipment as the security provider’s home security system, but the equipment package and monitoring options are adjusted to meet business needs.

Let’s take a look at what your Vivint business security system can include.


Choosing Vivint means having access to the technology that sets this company apart from competitors, particularly its smart devices. Along with typical security features, you can create a network of smart devices that offer their own perks, including any that run on Z-Wave protocol. 

The basic Vivint for Business equipment package includes:

  • Vivint’s Smart Hub control panel
  • 3 window and door sensors
  • 1 motion detector
  • 1 key fob
  • 1 Vivint yard sign

To boost the strength of your system, you can also add on a variety of devices that will provide additional security.

Security cameras

There are three cameras you can add to your system, each with its own unique features and numerous customizations.

Vivint’s Ping Indoor Camera

This camera is more than just a window into your office or store. One of its best features is the button on top, which instantly calls you through the app. If your employees are threatened or uncomfortable, they can quickly use this Callout feature to signal for help.

Equipped with a 155° field of vision and 1080p HD resolution, the Ping provides crystal clear footage of everything that happens in your workspace. You can view the live video feed at any time through the app. 

With the Ping camera, you’ll get:

  • Two-way communication
  • 10x zoom
  • Infrared night vision
  • Instant notifications when motion is detected
  • Smart Clips, which are 20-second clips that are automatically flagged when motion detectors or other parts of your system are triggered

Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro

What happens outside of your business is just as important as what goes on inside. The Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro does more than just record. Once you define your custom perimeter, the camera will watch for anyone that enters this area and lingers too long. 

Using Smart Deter technology, the camera will make a loud sound and light up the ring around the lens to tell the lurker that they’re being recorded. This technology also minimizes false alarms and alerts from people, animals, and cars passing by.

This outdoor security camera also boasts:

  • 4K HDR resolution
  • 140° wide-angle lens
  • Infrared night vision
  • 3x HD zoom
  • Hybrid wired Wi-Fi connectivity to ensure fast, high-quality uploads with the perks of internet connectivity
  • Instant notifications when some enters your surveillance zone
  • Two-way communication
  • Smart Clips
Vivint Doorbell Camera Pro

Depending on your workplace, you may or may not need a doorbell camera. If you receive a lot of packages or just want a way to remotely answer the door, this might be a good item to include.

Vivint’s doorbell camera offers all of the features you can expect from this type of device, but it also offers exclusive package protection capabilities. First, the camera detects when someone leaves a package at your door. It then guards the package, sounding an alert, lighting up, and alerting you if anyone tries to steal it.

This doorbell camera features:

  • 1080p HDR resolution
  • 180° field of view
  • Infrared night vision
  • Two-way communication
  • Custom surveillance zone settings
  • Instant notifications when someone approaches the door
  • Smart Clips

Smart Drive

Vivint’s cameras record 24/7, which is great for your security but also creates a need for extensive storage.  When you use the Smart Drive storage device, you can access 30 days of 24-hour video footage. The Smart Clips feature also flags any clips that might be important, making it easy to find the footage you need.

If you experience a break-in or disturbance, you can download a 30-second, 90-second, or 5-minute video of the event to share with police and others.

Security sensors

Though one of the most basic parts of your security system, these sensors are the most reliable way to detect a break-in.

Vivint offers a variety of sensors to ensure your business’ security, including:

  • Motion sensors – These devices will trigger the alarm if they detect any movement while your system is armed. They are also equipped with passive infrared technology, using heat signatures to identify movement as well.
  • Glass break sensors – Sometimes intruders will break windows to access your building without triggering your window sensors. If someone breaks a window at your business, this sensor will alert you immediately.
  • Door and window sensors – If a door or window is opened while your system is armed, these sensors will instantly activate your alarm. With Vivint’s advanced technology, you can also schedule your sensors to activate at specific times, minimizing the risk of false alarms.
  • Recessed door sensors – These discreet devices ensure you can cover every door with ease.

Safety alarms

Vivint’s comprehensive approach to safety includes guarding against emergency situations, such as fires. It provides several smart detectors that will alert you to the danger and work with the rest of your security system to protect your employees and business most effectively. 

These alarms include:

  • Carbon monoxide detectors – A CO leak can quickly harm your employees and customers. This smart device alerts you and Vivint’s monitoring team as soon as it detects carbon monoxide. It will also tell the Smart Hub to turn your HVAC fan on to clear the building.
  • Smoke detectors – Since professional buildings are empty overnight, you may not catch a fire until it’s too late. After notifying you and the monitoring team, it will have the Smart Hub turn off airflow to slow the fire’s spread.
  • Flood detectors – Whether it’s a broken pipe or water from outside, this detector will send an alert as soon as it senses water in an area that should be dry. It will even monitor temperatures to help you prevent frozen pipes.

Smart automation

Vivint is best known for its sophisticated smart equipment. In addition to offering its own line of smart devices, this security provider has created a fully connected system capable of extensive customization and automation. This network will improve your business security while also making your life easier.

Smart locks

Vivint’s security integrates with Kwikset smart locks. You can engage and disengage these locks with keys, numerical codes, voice commands, and your app. With smart locks, you can:

  • Let employees in if they arrive before you
  • Use your phone to make sure every door is locked after-hours
  • Engage the locks from anywhere in an emergency
  • Give up to 30 employees their own unique access code
Smart lights

Use your app to turn on a light to make your workspace seem occupied or to turn off any lights that were forgotten. You can also dim the lights, create an automated lighting schedule, or set your lights to come on when you unlock the door.

Smart thermostats

Heating and cooling is a large expense for any business with a brick-and-mortar location. You can minimize this cost by using a Vivint smart thermostat or Nest thermostat with your business security system.

Set your thermostat to only heat or cool the building during business hours. You can also adjust the temperature remotely or through a smart assistant. If you don’t keep regular hours, your smart thermostat can automatically sense when you enter the building and adjust the temperature to your preferences.

Smart assistants

Integrating Google Home or Amazon Echo into your business is a great way to offer more convenience to your team. When you add your security system, it will seamlessly connect with your smart assistant.

Once integrated, you can control all of your smart devices, including your security system, with your voice. This feature is particularly helpful if you can’t carry your phone with you or don’t want to pull it out to adjust your system.

Simply ask the Google Assistant or Alexa to turn up the lights, increase the temperature, or lock the doors. These tasks become effortless and take only a second to make business more comfortable and efficient.

Car Guard

Company vehicles are a significant investment and asset. Even if you use surveillance cameras to monitor your parking lot, you may not be able to stop car thieves from taking your vehicles.

Car Guard is an easy way to track each vehicle’s location. It also watches for bumps, tampering, and towing, alerting you to any disturbances. More importantly, the full system integration means your outdoor cameras will light up, sound an alert, and flag the clip as soon as Car Guard is triggered.

Another great feature is engine diagnostics tracking, immediately alerting you to any problems with your vehicles.

Controlling your business security system

Vivint gives you complete control over your system in two ways: through the highly-rated Vivint app and the Smart Hub control panel.

Vivint Smart Hub

The app is available for both Apple and Android users. Every Vivint for Business package includes the touchscreen Smart Hub.

You can use both devices to:

  • Arm/disarm your security system
  • View live feeds and recorded footage from any camera
  • Speak to Vivint’s professional monitoring team 
  • Request assistance during a medical emergency or intruder situation
  • Answer your door through the doorbell camera
  • Control and adjust smart devices
  • Create custom triggers, schedules, and actions
  • Get instant alerts for any changes or alarms

Whether you are in the office or across the world, you can quickly and easily access your entire security system to protect your business.

Along with the monthly monitoring costs, you will have to pay for your equipment. If you want to avoid a contract, you can pay for all of your equipment upfront. Vivint’s high-tech devices are on the pricey side, so be prepared for the expense.

You can also choose to finance your equipment for as little as $0 down. This pricing option does come with a long-term contract, so you will need to weigh the costs and benefits. We recommend only signing a contract if you expect to be in the same location during the full contracted period. Vivint systems can be costly to move.

Though you might pay a bit more for the equipment and monthly plan, professional installation is included in every purchase and you won’t have to pay an activation fee.

Professional monitoring

You need security that handles all of your security needs so you don’t have to. Vivint for Business does just that.

Its 24/7 professional monitoring service guarantees that someone will be monitoring your business at all times, even when you can’t. As soon as your system is triggered, a security expert will reach out to see if it was a false alarm. If they can’t get in touch with you or you request assistance, they will quickly dispatch emergency responders.

You can also connect with this team at any time through your Smart Hub or app. If you feel unsafe or need assistance, professional security support is only a call away.

Professional installation

You need a security solution that will always perform as intended, so it’s critical to install it correctly.

Vivint takes the stress and hassle out of the set-up process with its professional installation service. An installation technician will bring your system to your place of business and set it up within a few hours. They will also show you how to use your system and what features it offers. You can then have confidence in your set-up and the safety it provides.

Free security consultation

Before you purchase your security system, Vivint will send a security expert to evaluate your business and help you determine which equipment is best. This free service guarantees that your system will work for your needs and offer every capability you want.

Why do businesses need security systems?

A business security system isn’t just a guard against thieves. It can also help you provide a better customer experience and maintain compliance. Choosing a Vivint for Business solution is an investment in your business and its future.

What are the benefits of a business security system?

1. It prevents break-ins and thefts

Your workplace houses tens of thousands of dollars in equipment, merchandise, and information. A break-in would not only create expenses from the losses you face, but would also harm your reputation. People might not feel safe returning to your business, resulting in additional costs.

A security system can help you catch thieves and shoplifters, but it can also discourage them from targeting your building in the first place. If you are robbed, Vivint’s professional monitoring team is another line of defense, ensuring that help will arrive quickly. A fast response helps law enforcement catch the thieves while also limiting the amount of time they have to damage your property.

2. It protects customer assets

If you repair items, hold orders, or deal with sensitive customer information, you aren’t the only one at risk. Protecting your customers and their property is a top priority. A security system in the office or store adds an additional layer of security to everything inside. You can keep your customers’ belongings safe and prove your reliability at the same time.

3. It helps maintain compliance

Meeting safety standards is the only way to avoid fines, accidents, and potential closures. Though you can’t monitor your operations at all times, your security cameras can.

Use your footage to identify dangerous behaviors and train your employees to follow the correct processes. You can also use your video recordings to prove that you enforce safety codes if an accident occurs or you face a lawsuit.

4. It holds your team to your standards

While you shouldn’t hang over your employees’ shoulders, sometimes it’s necessary to keep a constant eye on your workplace.

If your business handles sensitive information, for example, you can use cameras to monitor who is accessing this data and when. In the event of a leak or theft, you can review your footage to identify the culprit.

You can also rely on your security system to identify incidents of harassment or discrimination. These videos will not only protect your company, but offer security and support for victims.

5. It minimizes damage

As mentioned above, Vivint offers several safety alarms for carbon monoxide, smoke, and flooding. The faster you can respond to these emergencies, the less damage you will experience. These sensitive sensors can save stress, money, and, most importantly, lives.

Automate your business

Smart automation eliminates the risks of leaving a door unlocked or forgetting to arm the system. You can not only secure your business remotely but also get notifications whenever these situations occur.
