    Adding Cameras

    Has anyone tried adding any other cameras to your system beside the Alarm.com ones? I just got my outdoor camera hooked up from Vivint and the quality of the camera is pretty cheap.

    Can you confirm if an alarm.com camera is compatible with vivintsky? I contacted vivint this morning to inquire about adding a camera to my existing system. They want a $250 instalation fee plus $200 for camera. When I asked about buying a camera on ebay and installing it myself he said I could do that if I wanted to. On ebay I only see vivint alarm.com cameras with no mention of vivintsky compatibility. Thanks

    Do you have a Plan that includes cameras already? if so you should be able to log into your account and add additional cameras as long as your plan allows that

    The answer is yes and no, vivint runs a custom firmware on their cameras, only the outdoor cameras are still alarm.com cameras, they make their own doorbell and ping indoor cameras.

    V520ir cameras and the (720?) outdoor cameras should work if they are recent production(i think all the alarm.com cameras we used now come with the dual firmware and it switches to the correct firmware autimatically- worst case you have to return your alarm.com cameras and get them from vivint.

    The outdoor cameras now only have a $69 install fee. Camera is $200 but thats not bad for an outdoor camera.

    Or you can just pay the $69 install fee and raise your monthly by $10/mo(i reccommend the upfront cost option)
