Whenever you notice the tail swaying back and forth when you open the front door, you remember why you always wanted a dog for your [[targerlocation]] family. Even so, some furry friends can trigger sensors on some home security systems. And it appears that the bigger your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they may cause a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be helpful if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Dothan?

Vivint's smart home security system has several tools ideal for pet owners. To start with, you can modify the sensors to exclude locations where your four-legged friends usually wander about. Second, make use of your indoor video cameras with high definition night vision and motion detecting capacity to always have eyes on your animals. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system should be straightforward to control so you may quickly activate and deactivate the system as needed.

Adjust your sensors to allow for pets

Current door, window, and motion sensors are much more pet-friendly than before. Cats and smaller dogs should have no problem averting an accidental triggering of the sensor, as the equipment will adjust accordingly. Bigger dogs and rowdy pets might have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but there are ways you can decrease that risk with a couple adjustments on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Set the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You can also adjust the range of the sensor.
  • Position motion detection devices away from heavily traveled areas, including the favorite napping spot or food dish.
  • Disengage your alarms with your cell phone app when you’re on your way home -- especially if your pet is known to jump around secured doors or windows as you walk in.
  • Set a smart bulb to activate to relax an anxious animal after the sun goes down.

The ability to make these modifications makes Vivint the top pet-friendly home security system in Dothan.

Utilize your indoor video cams to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with 2-way talk are a great method for owners to check on their furry friends while working or traveling with your helpful smartphone app. Your surveillance systems can even pick up your pet in lower levels of light in full high definition, so you can observe what’s going on throughout the house without even leaving your room. And if your video components pick up abnormal activity, you are able to have a short video segment dispatched to your cell phone to see if it's your dog or an intruder.

Anxious behavior is commonplace for dogs and if this is the situation with your animal, Vivint cameras can be of assistance. Whenever you observe them beginning to get uneasy, talk to them by using the two-way audio feature. They should detect your voice and understand that all is fine. In addition, if you see that they are nervous in a thunderstorm, you might remotely activate lighting to make the room less alarming.

The most dog-friendly home security system in Dothan is easy to manage

The many dog-friendly options are great, but they wouldn't mean a great deal if they were a challenge to operate. The nice part about a smart home system like Vivint's is that the many tools are both on your centralized control panel and your mobile security app. So set your alarms around your family's lifestyle -- and don’t forget your dogs! All that is needed is a few button taps and you have your complete system set up and ready to go.
