There’s no place like home.

Ping gives you a crystal-clear view of your home. Crisp, high-definition video catches every detail while a wide-angle lens opens up entire rooms. Advanced image technology lets you see what you want to see, day or night. It’s the next best thing to being there.

Don’t miss a move.

See what’s been happening at home, at your convenience. When someone moves into Ping’s field of view, smart motion detection activates recording of 20-second Smart Clips you can watch on demand through your mobile device or Smart Hub panel. Plus, you can choose a specific area for motion detection and set the camera to be more or less sensitive to movement.

Ping in, Ping out.

Two-way talk gives you a direct connection to home from your mobile device. Check in any time to see to see if your kids are staying out of mischief, if they’re doing their homework, or just to say, “hi.” And your loved ones can easily reach you, too.

Be part of the action.

Ping sends you custom mobile notifications about activity in your home, using your preferred settings to record video clips and send them to your phone. It’s an easy way to see people coming and going around your house and capture unexpected moments when you can’t be there.

Ping doesn’t sleep.

Kids wandering the house after bedtime. Pets that go bump in the night. Life doesn’t stop when the lights go out. But don’t get out of bed. Ping’s infrared night vision watches over your home from dusk to dawn so you can rest easy.

Say when.

From capturing baby’s first steps to figuring out who's been raiding the pantry, Playback makes sure you never miss a thing.

Can I install a new camera or move my old one?


A Vivint Smart Home Professional will install and position your Vivint Ping Cameras as part of your smart home package. After the initial installation, you can move your Ping cameras wherever you like. If you decide to make changes yourself, we suggest you pay special attention to these four points:

  • Camera height — Mount or position cameras according to your preference to catch the action you want to see.
  • Signal strength — Make sure camera placement is within your WiFi range.
  • Power supply routing — The closer to the power source, the better.
  • Mounting — Ensure a secure attachment.
