Thread: Want to take over my VIVINT system next month when my contract expires

    Want to take over my VIVINT system next month when my contract expires

    Good evening everyone, I would like to get some advice on taking over my VIVINT system once my contract expires next month.

    I've already submitted my cancellation notice.

    The system was installed in May of 2013. I have a GC2 panel, smoke detector, motion sensors, door sensors, thermostat, camera, and door lock.

    I was tired of paying the $69 to VIVINT every month.

    I do not want to include the z-wave thermostat, door lock, or camera into a new security system. I will add this automation to my Wink hub.

    Once I replace the cellular module, should I be able to take over the smoke detector, motion sensors, and door sensors? I'd also like to add a few glass break detectors.

    Once I remove the thermostat, camera, and door lock from the panel toolbox, will I be able to take them over with my Wink hub?

    Do I need to do anything prior to my VIVINT service being cut off?

    I looked at a thread recommending the alarm.com monitoring starting at $13.99, and I feel that is my best option.

    What else do I need to think about when it comes to a DIY system?

    Thank you,
    Dave

    Michael, Your link/post is dated Feb 2014, does this still apply to newly locked Vivint panels as I have read on some posts/forums this procedure does not always work?
