Disable Vivint smart home system
The Vivint Doorbell system is quite intelligent and it is Theft-proof. Actually, Vivint Doorbell system connects to sensors that produce an alarm in case the sensors feel touched.
Now, Go to your Vivint app and remove the warning notification which means that you have disabled the Vivint system. You can check the setting in the app and confirm the whole Vivint system has been disabled and removed carefully.
Turn off the Power
Make sure that you remove your doorbell camera from the power source carefully. Remove all the direct wiring from the outlet. Locate the circuit breaker that controls the power to the camera, and turn it off. This will ensure that you can safely remove the camera without the risk of electrocution.
Note: Always set aside your Doorbell’s wiring and connection resources to ensure that no live wire can harm you.
Remove the Panel Cover
First, check the current supply has been stopped and it is not passing through the doorbell because, even after removing the power source, there is a possibility of current. So, you can use a Tester and if tester’s light blinks, it means the current is still passing through.
Now, when you have cleared and ensured that there is no current, take a screwdriver and remove the screws from the panel. Push the tab gently and pull the cover out and down. Hang the panel cover on the backplate.
Remove the Mounting Bracket
When you have opened the panel cover, you will see two sets of wires. One is used to direct the current to the circuit while the other wire is for batteries.
- Power wires are connecting externally.
- Battery wires are insulated internally in the doorbell.
Now, you have to remove the external wires connecting to the doorbell. You can use a simple tool such as a screwdriver to remove the power wires from the panel. Don’t forget to remove any cable wiring connecting to the outside internet mediums.
Here, you can see screws that have tightened the doorbell with the wall. Once, you remove the screws, you can detach the doorbell and mounting plate from the wall.
Disconnect Power Wires
When you remove the mounting bracket from the wall, you can see wires from the wall which are known as power wires to supply current to the doorbell. Pull out all the wires and save them aside to use again when you re-install the doorbell.
Patch the Holes
With the mounting bracket removed, you may be left with holes in your wall. To patch these holes, you’ll need some spackle or putty.
