I tried for 2 years with no luck. The best I could get after going crazy with the cameras (jtag and hacked firmware) was laggy 5fps jpgs direct from camera. Vivint does their very best to lock you into their technology. I had the MP1 and never could get it to reliably do anything.
My dealings with Vivint have been nothing but a cash grab. We got security AND solar from them. They locked us into a 5 year contract for security and 20 for solar. They “retired” their security equipment after 1 year, most of the functions stopped working. They refused to replace it with the new supported equipment but kept us locked into the contract with 2/3rds of the functionality gone. Then our solar started failing, We kept getting billed, but since their equipment went offline due to problems we no longer got our power generation credits from PG&E so we got billed double. Fought it for several years finally had to get lawyers involved when they refused to fix/replace the broken leased equipment and then destroyed our roof removing the crap. We ended up with dead vivint security equipment (they didn’t even want it back) so that is when I went down the road to try and salvage SOMETHING.
On the flip side, we later got the Xfinity/Comcast security, and granted they get a bad rep as a company on whole, They supported and replaced anything that broke, or stopped being supported under the contract. I now have a fully offline system because I wanted to get a way from re-occuring high costs, I was satisfied with everything Comcast/Xfinity provided EXCEPT the price.
How did you swap the SkyPanel with Smarthub? I got a used Smarthub but I’m still looking into ways to replace my old SkyPanel with no luck. Even tried Vivint support and they refused to support me since I didn’t buy the equipment from them. I appreciate your advice.
