Whenever you observe the tail start moving when you walk through the door, you remember why you always wanted a dog for your [[targerlocation]] home. With that in mind, quite a few pets are inclined to trip alarms on various home security systems. And it seems that the bigger your dog is, the greater the likelihood they could be the source of a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Decatur?

Ideal for dog owners, Vivint smart homes provide a multitude of benefits. First of all, you are able to modify the sensors to disregard spaces where pets usually wander about. Next, use your indoor surveillance devices with high definition night vision and motion sensing functionality to always have eyes on your pet. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be easy to control so you are able to swiftly engage and disengage your home’s defense as required.

Program your sensors to account for pets

Modern motion, door, and window sensors are much more pet-friendly than previous devices. Smaller animals aren’t likely to have any issue averting an inadvertent sensor trip, as the system can adapt to them. Larger dogs and rambunctious animals will have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you are able to reduce that risk with a couple adjustments on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Adjust the motion detection sensitivity to low. You may even adjust the range of the sensor.
  • Position detectors away from heavily traveled areas, like your dog’s pet bed or feeding area.
  • Turn off your alarms via your smartphone app when you’re on your way home -- especially if your dog likes to jump around secured doors or windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Program smart lighting to activate to relax an anxious dog when it gets dark.

The ability to make these modifications is why Vivint is the leading pet-friendly home security system in Decatur.

Utilize your indoor security cameras to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor security cameras with two-way talk are a great way for pet parents to check on their animals while working or traveling through your easy-to-use cell phone app. Your surveillance devices even have the ability to provide a video feed of your pet in lower levels of light in full high definition, so you’re able to see what is transpiring downstairs without even leaving your room. Whenever your cameras detect unusual activity, you may have a smart clip dispatched to your cell phone to see if it's your dog or a burglar.

Uneasiness and distressed behavior is fairly normal for dogs and if this is the situation with your four-legged friend, Vivint surveillance devices can be beneficial to you. If you find them starting to act up, talk to them via the two-way audio feature. They will hear your voice and realize that it’s all right. Or, if you discover that they are troubled with the onset of a thunderstorm, you can remotely activate a smart bulb to make things less alarming.

The best dog-friendly home security system in Decatur is easy to use

All of the pet-friendly features are awesome, but they wouldn't benefit you much if they were difficult to use. The nice part about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that all your features are included in both your smart hub and your cell phone app. So set your equipment around your way of life -- including the pets! All it requires is a few button taps and you have your entire home defense package set up and ready to go.
