Vivint Go Control panel Exploit: If anyone gains access to a Vivint panel that is in a disarmed state, they can access and view all User codes including the master User code, change them, and even create a new backdoor User code themselves. Here is how: On disarmed panel, click 'security' click 'menu', click 'toolbox', enter 2203, click 'user management' Secret Duress User 8 code is 2580, and this can be used to disarm a Vivint panel, thus enabling the vulnerability, and code viewing and backdoor User code creation. Both of these codes are all over the internet, and can be found with a simple Google search.
This site tells you how to fix the vulnerabilities: • • • • •. No you can't. You are clearly not familiar with 2GIG/Vivint panels In ademco/Vista/Honeywell you have to find/disconnect battery terminals in the can, find and pull the AC power transformer, and then reboot into programming mode, hit * , and if youre not locked out *20, then a new 4 digit IC, then *99. Its completely different in Vivint.no need to reboot, no convoluted process to access/view/change installer/user/master user codes, just a touch screen UI, enter 2203 at toolbox and youre in and that is all she wrote. I can steal an unsuspecting Vivint customers master code in give or take 10 sec, right in front of their face, they haven't a clue.
The only protection from this is for the Vivint user to change Q44 to '0', change Q43 to a 4 digit code only they would know, and to change User 8 code/or delete it Near 600,000 Vivint users haven't a clue how vulnerable they are, and how easy it is to steal/access/compromise their security panel codes This is their wake up call Also, for those that think Vivint will have their back, they would be dead wrong. Suggest they read the fine print on back of contract. There is a clause that states they are not liable for more than 12x monthly fee, or $1,000 (whichever is less) if the system fails, is improperly installed, even if it results in death/injury, property damage/loss, etc. So say you are paying $50/month to Vivint, and because of this known exploit/or improper system installation something bad happens to you or your family.you have in writing agreed that Vivint if found liable, is only liable for $600. Awesome, someone dies, gets raped, badly injured, you get a $600 credit or check from Vivint. The purpose of my posting this known exploit, is to make Vivint customers aware of the issue, and force them to be proactive in their own home defense • • • • •. You can buy the jammers that are especially effective against Vivint systems for around $50 with a range of about 10 meters (by default 'RF Jamming causes trouble' is disabled in Vivint's panel programming (Q65), and radio/cellular modem network failure times (Q23) is set to max 255 min (4 hours, before the panel even sounds a trouble for cellular communication loss) Ideally you want rf jamming causes trouble to be enabled, and for radio modem network failure to be no more than 30 min Jammers here: • • • • •.
The problem here is, that code should not give User Management access, just like it doesn't provide system configuration access on panels that are locked out via Q44, but it does. (Vivint policy is to lockout all their customers BTW). This code is all over the internet, apparently only the Vivint customers/home owners are unaware of this code and what it can do. Just imagine high school kids, friends/aquaintances, neighbors, classmates of your children getting access to your home, and creating their own backdoor access codes, or viewing your master user code.or that person/contractor working on your home, or babysitter that has a temp user code, that only allows access during set hours of the day.they can get your master/user codes, and create a backdoor code that you will never know about. Maybe its just me, maybe I am the only one who sees this as a critical security issue, vulnerability in the Vivint /2GIG system?
Hey Josh, I have my Vivint Sky Control Panel connected to my SmartThings hub as a secondary controller. It didn't work very well at first, but my firmware has been updated several times since then. Today I installed a new Kwickset Smart Lock and when I associated it to my Vivint Panel it immediately showed up in my SmartHub too.
All of my switches that are associated to my SmartHub are now showing up on my Vivint Panel. I can control any device from either place! One thing to note is that I am part of Vivint's Beta program so I don't know if the (working) secondary controller functionality is public yet. Give it a try and let me know if it works for you. If not, you might just need to be a little patient until the latest firmware comes out. First, unassociate all your z-wave devices from Vivint and SmartThings. In your Vivint Panel: • Go to the Installer Menu • Select Z-wave • Choose Learn Controller In Smarthings: • Add new Z-wave device • It should show as Unknown Controller or something similar Sometimes you have to do this a couple times, but your Vivint panel should become secondary to SmartThings Hub.
It may take 15-20 minutes to do this. After that, you can add your z-wave switches/outlets to either Vivint or SmartThings and they will show up in both places, but there are a few things you need to add directly to Vivint (they will still show up in SmartThings) so that Vivint will recognize them in your Vivint phone app, etc: • Door Locks • Garage Openers • Thermostats Sometimes I had to do a Repair Z-Wave network on both Vivint and SmartThings to get it to work fully.
Some of my switches added to SmartThings took 15-60 minutes to show up in Vivint. Hi Thanks for the rundown on how to connect to the vivint panel, this is exactly what I was looking to do. Before I start, I have some questions which I can’t seem to find answers to anywhere, however, if you have done this before, I’m hoping you can help! • If the Vivint control panel is secondary, does that impact the monitoring service at all? • How does the vivint panel react to things that are completely unrelated to security? Does it just ignore them or do they not even show up in the vivint’s panel/ecosystem?
• I have some aeon multisensor6’s which I use via smart things, I also have some vivint motion sensors which are solely used for security. If I link the panel and the hub, do they all have to be directly linked to either? I suspect vivint probably doesn’t have the ability to utilize all of the data coming from the multisensors ideally I’d like to include the motion from the multisensors in the alarm system but retain the routines using them on ST such as turning lights on as you walk into a room. • is there any lag introduced into vivint? Iso Container Corner Castings For Containers. Thank you in advance! It doesn’t impact monitoring because all the security-related equipment is not z-wave, it operates at 345Mhz (Smoke detectors, window/door sensors, motion detectors, etc.). The panel will see z-wave switches and outlets that you add to smart-things but that is it.
It won’t pick up your garage controller, thermostat, etc. If you add them to smartthings first. But if you add them to your vivint panel, SmartThings will see them too. You are correct about the multi-sensors and Vivint. Vivint won’t see their extended capabilities. I really wish that Vivint would proxy their security devices into the z-wave mesh as virtual devices!
I have not noticed any lag. Ok, so I managed to link my panel to ST’s via the “learn new controller” option in the toolbox however, when I see it in the smartthings app, it just has “on / off” options, that don’t do anything. I tried to add sensors back to the panel which appears to be in 3 stages: Activate sensor (usually by opening and closing it) install it (mine are already in place) then verify connection (which it asks me to open and close the sensor again) The panel see’s the sensors being activated straight away, but it never responds when trying to verify the connection. I get the impression that because the sky panel is a secondary controller now, that it is waiting for smartthings to verify it. But with no device handler it doesn’t know what to do Is there a key component I’ve missed out here?
Thanks in advance! I’m starting with the door and window sensors that were initially installed by vivint and trying to add them directly back to the vivint panel, I had hoped they would show up in vivint and smartthings doing it that way, however, now I just want them to show up in vivint so I’ve an alarm system again.
I’ll probably call vivint when I get in from work and see if they can help reconnect the devices, I didn’t realize the vivint sensors were not z-wave. Without the sensor input, there isn’t much I’d use with ST’s so I may abandon the project.
