Once you have successfully added the Pivot to your account, you can pair the included door and window sensors with the Pivot. Before you can add the sensors, make sure that your smartphone is connected to the same WiFi network as your Pivot. 

1) Open the Zmodo app and access the Pivot settings page. 

The settings icon can be found on the Pivot's device preview on the Device List. 

2) Open the "Accessories" menu, and press the (+) icon. 

Press the button located on the door / window sensor when prompted to by the app. 

3) Configure the presets. 

Your Pivot can turn automatically towards a preset location when each sensor is triggered. Return to the Pivot settings, and select "Preset Setting". Press the (+) icon to continue. 

4) Finish and save your settings. 

Select a name for the preset action, and choose the sensor that you would like to configure. Then use the live-view from the Pivot to set where you would like the Pivot to turn when the sensor is triggered. Once you are finished, press save, and repeat for the other sensors.
