Python library for interacting with a Vivint security and smart home system.

Project description

pypi downloads Buy Me A Coffee/Beer


Python library for interacting with a Vivint security and smart home system.

This was built to support the Vivint integration in Home-Assistant but should work outside of it too. Currently, it can be utilized via HACS by adding the hacs-vivint custom repository.


This was inspired by the great work done by Mike Reibard to reverse engineer the Vivint Sky API and Ovidiu Stateina for the repository from which this is forked and expanded on.


It currently has support for the following device types:

  • alarm panels
  • cameras
  • door locks
  • garage doors
  • switches
    • binary
    • multilevel
  • thermostats
  • wireless sensors
    • carbon monoxide
    • door/window
    • flood
    • glass break
    • motion
    • smoke/fire
    • etc

In addition, it integrates with PubNub to receive real-time updates for devices. This subscription stops receiving notifications around 15-20 minutes unless a call is made to the Vivint Sky API periodically. This might be related to the cookie expiration since it expires 20 minutes after the last API call was received. If another client connects, however, the notifications start to stream again for all currently connected clients.


See for a demonstration on how to use this library.


  • write a better readme
  • write some documentation
  • add advanced support for:
    • thermostats
  • add tests

Support Me

I'm not employed by Vivint, and provide this python package as-is.

If you don't already own a Vivint system, please consider using my referal code (kaf164) to get $50 off your bill (as well as a tip to me in appreciation)!

If you already own a Vivint system and still want to donate, consider buying me a coffee ☕ (or beer 🍺) instead by using the link below:
