The steadfast companionship and happiness a dog bestows upon your family in Elizabethtown really makes them an integral part of your family. Even so, quite a few pets are inclined to set off a sensor on various home security systems. And it seems that the larger your dog is, the more likely they might be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn't it be helpful if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Elizabethtown?

Vivint's smart home systems have built-in options that make sense for families with pets. First of all, you may modify the sensors to ignore areas where pets usually wander about. Then, make use of your indoor video cameras with high-def night vision and motion sensing capabilities to always have eyes on your animals. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system should be straightforward to use so you can swiftly activate and deactivate your property’s security as you need.

Adjust your sensors to avoid dogs

Modern door, window, and motion sensors are much more pet-friendly than before. Cats and smaller dogs shouldn’t have any issue averting an unintentional triggering of the sensor, as the equipment can adapt to them. Bigger dogs and rambunctious animals might have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but there are ways you can decrease that risk with a couple changes on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Change the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You may even alter the amount of area covered by the device.
  • Install detectors away from high-traffic spots, such as a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food bowl.
  • Turn off your alarms via your mobile security app when you’re getting close to the house -- especially if your furry friend likes to bound past the door or window as you walk in.
  • Set a smart light to turn on to calm an uneasy dog at night.

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

Use your indoor security cameras to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor security cameras with 2-way talk are an easy method for homeowners to look into their animals while working or traveling through your helpful mobile app. Your surveillance systems will even pick up your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full HD, so you’re able to catch a glimpse of what they are doing in the common areas without leaving the bed. In the event your cameras notice abnormal activity, you may have a smart clip delivered to your mobile device to determine if it's your pet or an intruder.

Your Vivint surveillance systems are also fantastic options for dogs who scare easily. If you see them begin to become distressed, talk to them by using the camera's speaker. They should notice your voice and realize that all is fine. In addition, if you see that they are stressed in a thunderstorm, you can remotely turn on a smart bulb to make the room less scary.

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

All of the pet-friendly options are great, but they wouldn't mean a great deal if they were a challenge to manage. The good part about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that the various features are both on your centralized control panel and your smartphone app. Feel free to set your devices around your family's lifestyle -- and that includes your dogs! All it requires are a few touches of a button and you have your entire home security under control.
