Need some advice. I just purchased a home that has a Vivint system and its paid for so I can use it or leave it - no contract. The Vivint has the security side of things (motion, glass break, windows and doors) but I am not opposed to just removing it all and then installing something that will allow me to use some sort of Alexa contacts for windows. I don't need motion or glass break. It would be nice to know if someone slid open a window at 3AM. I don't want alarm monitoring when an Alexa can wake me up or when I am away...it will still let me know.

One thing I was curious about is if there is a way (without a Vivint contract) to get Alexa to see the Vivint hub and use it - I know I am dreaming ... right?

Vivint Screen is nice but seems super limited vs if I just get an Android tablet for the wall and setup Alexa on it.

Just tryin to make this all work. :-)
