With today’s technology, you have access to a wealth of information and features at any given moment. Our smartphones have become an integral part of our lives and they keep us connected to the world. To stay connected to your security system at all times, we developed the Vector Security Home Automation App for users to easily access their equipment from the palm of their hands.
To help ensure users are getting the most out of their Vector Security Home Automation App (and security system), we offer a step-by-step guide below.
Getting Started, Step-by-Step:
- Download the Vector Security Home Automation App for free from the Google Play Store or Apple Store.
- Log into your account on the Vector Security Home Automation App.
- Your security provider will activate your security devices, from video surveillance cameras to motion sensors.
- Manage your notifications by clicking on “Notifications” in the settings menu.
- Enable automatic rules and alerts based on your phone’s location through Geo-Services.
- Select events (e.g., alarms, arming, system events, etc.), and enable text or email notifications for specific contacts.
- Manage existing security notifications or add new ones as needed.
The Vector Security Home Automation App allows you to customize notifications based on what is important to you and your family. Within the Vector Security Home Automation App, you can decide how often you want security notifications, where your data is stored and grant access to trusted people, such as babysitters or extended family members.
Using the Vector Security Home Automation App on a Daily Basis
Now that you’ve successfully logged into the Vector Security Home Automation App, let’s discuss its unique features and practical uses. These features are also available and can be controlled via your Vector Security online portal.
Arming Your Security System
Arming your security system is relatively simple.
Once logged in, select the section titled, “Security System” in the Vector Security Home Automation App. Your screen is customized based on security features you have in your package. From this screen, you can arm or disarm your security devices all at once. This way, you don’t have to worry about manually controlling each piece.
Accessing Recorded Footage
Users have the ability to quickly view recorded security footage from their Vector Security Home Automation App. In the navigation menu, select “Video.” From there, you’ll have the option to view live footage or saved recordings at your convenience.
Customizing Your Notifications
There’s nothing more frustrating than constant reminders on your phone, which is why the Vector Security Home Automation App allows users to customize what notifications they receive. Users can choose to receive notifications on a set schedule or live as alerts happen. You can also choose what time you receive notifications. For example, if your mornings are busy and you want to review during lunch, set your notifications to deliver at noon.
Customizing Who Has Access
Users also have the ability to share access with other users. For example, if you have a babysitter or visiting family members entering and exiting your home, this feature allows you to temporarily grant access to the Vector Security Home Automation App so they can arm and disarm security systems.
You can select specific hours during the day the individual can have access and choose what features they have access to.
Vector Security customers have access to 24/7 support year-round. If you’re having trouble with your device’s connectivity or functionality, a Vector Security professional is standing by to help.
The Vector Security Home Automation App is designed to fit anyone’s lifestyle and can be customized just for you. Whether you’re always in and out of the house, a frequent traveler or just want that extra peace of mind around your home, our team can help.
