When you see the tail start moving when you open the front door, you remember why you always wanted a dog for your [[targerlocation]] home. Even so, many animals are inclined to trip a sensor on some home security systems. And it stands to reason that the bigger your pooch is, the greater the chance they may be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Birmingham?

If you have a dog, you need to think about the many benefits that come with Vivint’s alarms and cameras. To start with, you can adjust the sensors to exclude locations where your four-legged friends typically roam. Then, use your indoor video cameras with HD night vision and motion detecting capacity to maintain a close watch of your furry housemates. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system ought to be simple to use so you can quickly arm and disarm your home’s defense as needed.

Adjust your sensors to avoid pets

Modern motion, door, and window sensors are more accommodating to pets than previous devices. Small dogs or cats shouldn’t have any problem avoiding an unintentional tripping of the sensor, as the system are capable of adjusting. Bigger dogs and rowdy pets might have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but there are ways you can decrease that likelihood with some adjustments on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Adjust the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You can also adjust the size of the perimeter of the sensor.
  • Install motion sensors away from frequented places, like the favorite napping spot or feeding area.
  • Deactivate your alarms with your mobile security app before you pull in the driveway -- especially if your furry friend has a tendency to leap toward the door or window when you walk up the front steps.
  • Program a smart bulb to turn on to soothe an anxious pet when it gets dark.

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

Utilize your indoor security cameras to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor security cameras with 2-way talk are a great way for owners to check on their four-legged companions while at work or vacation through your helpful mobile app. Your surveillance devices can even give you a visual of your pet in lower levels of light in full HD, so you can observe what they are doing downstairs without leaving the bed. In the event your video components notice unusual motion, you can have a short video segment dispatched to your mobile device to see if it's your dog or an intruder.

When your furry friend suffers from anxiety, your Vivint surveillance systems can actually be beneficial to you. If you find them starting to become distressed, talk to them via the camera's speaker. They will notice your vocalization and realize that it's ok. Or, if you see that they are troubled with the onset of a storm, you might remotely flip on a light to make the room less intimidating.
