Smart Thermostats Create Comfort and Save Energy

Vivint Element™ Thermostat brings comfortable temperatures to your smart home—and saves on energy bills—with far fewer trips to the thermostat.

Rather than being a Wi-Fi smart thermostat, Element runs on Z-Wave frequencies, leaving your security cameras and other Wi-Fi devices running more efficiently while still wirelessly connecting to your system through the Smart Hub™.

The Vivint Thermostat Steps Up Smart Thermostat Design

Programmable thermostats have been around a long time, but smart thermostats track the temperatures you like and program themselves after just a few days. Vivint Element™ Thermostat takes the digital smart thermostat concept even further.

By syncing with additional smart sensors and monitoring local weather patterns, Vivint Element creates and maintains your ideal in-home climate with more precision and flexibility.

Vivint Element™ Thermostat Features

Mobile Alerts

Element controls itself—and keeps itself accountable by sending alerts every time it auto-adjusts, so you know why the temperature is changing. When needed, you can also make manual changes on Element itself, your mobile device, or the Smart Hub™.

Humidity Sensors

Element monitors moisture, not just temperature, so you can control the humidity in your house better. Plus, when hardwired to your HVAC and synced to your smart home, Element can shut down your HVAC during a fire to prevent flames from spreading rapidly through the vents.

Minimalist Design

Element has a sleek, barely there touch display, which lights up either on approach or with the touch of a button. Element also glows orange or blue to indicate warming or cooling, and its rectangular shape matches the shape of most old thermostats, so you don’t have to match paint.

Voice Control with the Vivint Smart Home Thermostat

If you tend to juggle shopping bags, your laptop, mail, and kids or car seats when you walk through the door every day, don’t shiver or sweat through unpacking groceries or laying the baby down.

Just integrate your Vivint Smart Hub™ with your Amazon Echo® or Google® Home to give voice commands to your Vivint smart home thermostat—if it hasn’t set itself already.

Precise, Professional Installation of Your Smart Home Thermostat

Vivint is committed to giving you quality service at every step, including installation. That’s why Vivint carefully vets and trains every installation tech it hires, and never outsources the job to third-party dealers.

Feel more comfortable and confident on installation day knowing that your Vivint Smart Home Pro™ can handle tasks as simple as installing your Vivint thermostat batteries or as complicated as wiring your intelligent thermostat to your HVAC for more complete home automation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I calibrate my Vivint Element™ Thermostat?

While Element detects temperatures to within one-tenth of a degree Fahrenheit, the displayed temperature is always rounded to the nearest full degree (or half-degree Celsius). If you want to change Element’s point of reference by a degree or two, follow these steps:

  1. Find the side button and hold it for 3–4 seconds until you see Settings.
  2. Use the up and down arrows to navigate to Installer, then press the side button to select it.
  3. Use the up and down arrows to navigate to Calibrate, then press the side button to select it.
  4. Use the up and down arrows to select the temperature that seems to best match the temperature of the room.
  5. Hold the side button down for 2 seconds to return to the default thermostat view.

How do I change my Vivint thermostat batteries?

To get your Vivint thermostat back online, try one or all of the following:

  1. Carefully pull the body of the thermostat toward you so it lifts from the magnetic mounting plate.
  2. Remove the old batteries and place 4 new AA batteries into the proper slots.
  3. Place the thermostat back onto the magnetic mounting plate.
