When you see the tail start moving when you open the front door, you remember why you wanted to get a dog for your [[targerlocation]] family. However, quite a few animals have been known to trigger sensors on some home security systems. And it seems that the larger your pooch is, the more likely they may cause a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it helpful if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Rochester?

Perfectly suited for dog owners, Vivint smart homes provide an array of benefits. To start with, you are able to adjust the sensors to disregard locations where your animals are most active. Then, utilize your indoor video cameras with high definition night vision and motion sensing functionality to maintain a close watch of your animals. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system should be easy to control so you may quickly engage and disengage the system as you need.

Adjust your sensors to avoid dogs

Modern motion, door, and window sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than previous devices. Small dogs or cats aren’t likely to have any issue circumventing an inadvertent triggering of the sensor, as the system can adapt to them. Bigger dogs and exuberant pets may have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you may lessen that likelihood with some changes on the Vivint app.

  • Set the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You may even adjust the amount of area covered by the motion detector.
  • Install motion sensors away from heavily traveled areas, such as your dog’s pet bed or food dish.
  • Disengage your alarms with your mobile security app when you’re getting close to the house -- particularly if your furry friend likes to jump around your front door or nearby windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Program a smart light to activate to calm an uneasy pet when it gets dark.

Having the ability to handle these adjustments makes Vivint the best pet-friendly home security system in Rochester.

Use your indoor surveillance to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with 2-way talk are a great method for pet parents to soothe their furry friends while working or traveling via your intuitive mobile app. Your indoor cameras even have the ability to pick up your pet in low-light situations in full high definition, so you can see what they are doing downstairs without even leaving your room. In the event your cameras pick up unusual motion, you can have a video snippet dispatched to your mobile device to see if it's your dog or an intruder.

Your Vivint video components are also fantastic options for dogs with behavioral concerns. If you see them begin to get uneasy, soothe them by using the camera's speaker. They will notice your voice and understand that it’s all right. Or, if you discover that they are nervous with the onset of a thunderstorm, you might remotely activate lighting to make things less alarming.

The leading dog-friendly home security system in Rochester is a breeze to operate

All of the animal-friendly features are awesome, but they wouldn't benefit you all that much if they were a challenge to manage. The good aspect about a smart home package like Vivint's is that all your controls are found in both your centralized control panel and your cell phone app. So program your equipment around your unique household -- and that includes your pets! All that is needed is a few button taps and you have your complete system the way you want it.
