As you observe the tail wagging when you walk through the door, you are reminded why you always wanted a dog for your [[targerlocation]] home. However, some furry friends have been known to set off a sensor on some home security systems. And it seems that the larger your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they may be the reason for a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Auburn?

As a dog owner, you ought to consider the many benefits that come with Vivint’s smart home systems. First, you may rework the sensors to exclude spaces where pets usually wander about. Then, make use of your indoor surveillance devices with high-def night vision and motion detection functionality to always have eyes on your animals. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be simple to control so you may swiftly activate and deactivate your home’s defense as needed.

Adjust your sensors to allow for pets

Current door, window, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than previous devices. Smaller animals aren’t likely to have any trouble circumventing an unintentional sensor trip, as the devices will adjust accordingly. Larger dogs and exuberant animals may have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but there are ways you can lessen that likelihood with some changes on the Vivint app.

  • Adjust the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You are also able to adjust the range of the sensor.
  • Position motion detection devices away from heavily traveled areas, including your dog’s pet bed or food dish.
  • Turn off your alarms with your smartphone app when you’re getting close to the house -- particularly if your dog likes to bound past secured doors or windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Set a smart bulb to activate to relax an anxious animal at night.

The capability of handling these adjustments ranks Vivint as the best pet-friendly home security system in Auburn.

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

Indoor surveillance systems with 2-way talk are an excellent method for homeowners to check on their four-legged companions while away from home with your intuitive mobile app. Your surveillance systems even have the ability to give you a visual of your pet in lower levels of light in full high-def, so you may observe what they are doing throughout the house without getting out of bed. And if your cameras notice abnormal movements, you can have a short video segment sent to your phone to ascertain if it's your pet or a burglar.

Anxiety is common among dogs and if that’s the case with yours, Vivint cameras can be of assistance. If you see them begin to act up, speak to them through the two-way audio feature. They should notice your voice and know that it’s all right. In addition, if you see that they are troubled in a thunderstorm, you might remotely turn on a light to make the scene less intimidating.
