As you observe the tail swaying back and forth when you open the front door, you are reminded why you always wanted a dog for your [[targerlocation]] family. However, quite a few pets have been known to set off a sensor on some home security systems. And it stands to reason that the larger your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they might be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it beneficial if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Huntsville?

Perfectly suited for people with dogs, Vivint smart homes offer a range of benefits. First, you may modify the sensors to ignore spaces where your four-legged friends usually wander about. Next, utilize your indoor security cameras with high definition night vision and motion detecting capacity to always have eyes on your animals. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system ought to be easy to control so you are able to rapidly engage and disengage your property’s security as needed.

Set your sensors to account for pets

Today's door, window, and motion sensors are much more pet-friendly than past options. Cats and smaller dogs aren’t likely to have any problem averting an accidental triggering of the sensor, as the equipment are capable of adjusting. Bigger dogs and exuberant pets may have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you are able to decrease that likelihood with a couple adjustments on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Adjust the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You may even adjust the amount of area covered by the device.
  • Place motion detection devices away from high-traffic spots, such as a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food bowl.
  • Deactivate your alarms with your cell phone app before you pull in the driveway -- specifically if your furry friend has a tendency to bound past the door or window as you walk in.
  • Program smart lighting to turn on to calm an uptight animal when it gets dark.

Having the ability to handle these adjustments ranks Vivint as the best pet-friendly home security system in Huntsville.

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

Indoor video cameras with 2-way talk are a great means for pet parents to look into their four-legged companions while away from home with your intuitive cell phone app. Your indoor cameras even have the ability to give you a visual of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high definition, so you’re able to see what is transpiring downstairs without getting out of bed. And if your cameras notice unexpected motion, you may have a smart clip dispatched to your mobile device to ascertain if it's your pet or an intruder.

Uneasiness and distressed behavior is common among dogs and if this is the situation with your animal, Vivint surveillance devices may be advantageous for you. When you find them starting to become distressed, soothe them via the camera's speaker. They will hear your voice and realize that all is fine. Additionally, if you see that they are stressed in inclement weather, you might remotely turn on a light to make the scene less scary.
