As you observe the tail start moving when you enter your house, you are reminded why you always wanted a dog for your [[targerlocation]] home. Even so, some animals have been known to trip a sensor on various home security systems. And it seems that the larger your dog is, the greater the likelihood they may be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn't it be beneficial if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Allentown?

Vivint's home security alarms have built-in tools that make sense for pet owners. First, you are able to modify the sensors to exclude areas where pets are most active. Next, utilize your indoor surveillance devices with high-def night vision and motion detection capabilities to always have eyes on your pet. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system should be simple to interact with so you may rapidly activate and deactivate the system as required.

Program your sensors to account for dogs

Modern window, door, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than past options. Small dogs or cats shouldn’t have any trouble circumventing an unintentional triggering of the sensor, as the devices are capable of adjusting. More sizable dogs and exuberant pets will have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but you may lessen that likelihood with a couple changes on the Vivint app.

  • Set the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You may even adjust the amount of area covered by the sensor.
  • Position motion detection devices away from heavily traveled areas, such as a pet’s preferred sleeping place or feeding area.
  • Turn off your alarms with your mobile security app before you pull in the driveway -- particularly if your dog is known to leap toward secured doors or windows as you walk in.
  • Program a smart light to illuminate to soothe an uptight dog after the sun goes down.

Having the ability to handle these modifications makes Vivint the leading pet-friendly home security system in Allentown.

Utilize your indoor video cams to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with two-way talk are an excellent means for homeowners to soothe their furry friends while away from home via your intuitive smartphone app. Your surveillance devices will even pick up your pet in lower levels of light in full high-def, so you’re able to observe what’s going on throughout the house without even leaving your room. And if your surveillance devices notice abnormal movements, you are able to have a short video segment dispatched to your mobile device to see if it's your animal or a burglar.

Anxiety is fairly normal for dogs and if that’s the case with yours, Vivint cameras could be of assistance. When you find them starting to get uneasy, talk to them through the camera's speaker. They should detect your voice and know that all is fine. In addition, if you see that they are stressed during a storm, you can remotely activate lighting to make the scene less scary.

The most dog-friendly home security system in Allentown is a breeze to manage

These pet-friendly options are great, but they wouldn't help a great deal if they were hard to operate. The good part about a smart home system like Vivint's is that the many tools are included in both your centralized control panel and your cell phone app. Go ahead and program your equipment around your unique household -- and that includes your dogs! Then, all it takes is a few button taps and you have your whole home defense package set up and ready to go.
