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.
