Whenever you notice the tail swaying back and forth when you enter your house, you know why you always wanted a dog for your [[targerlocation]] home. However, quite a few pets can trigger a sensor on various home security systems. And it seems that the larger your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they may cause a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be helpful if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Erie?
Vivint's smart home systems have several options that are perfect for pet-loving families. First of all, you can adjust the sensors to ignore spaces where your four-legged friends usually wander about. Next, utilize your indoor video cameras with HD night vision and motion detecting functionality to maintain a close watch of your pet. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be simple to interact with so you can quickly activate and deactivate your property’s security as needed.
Set your sensors to account for dogs
Modern door, window, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than before. Cats and smaller dogs should have no issue avoiding an unintentional sensor trip, as the devices will adjust accordingly. Larger dogs and rambunctious pets may have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but you are able to decrease that likelihood with a few modifications on the Vivint mobile app.
- Adjust the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You can also adjust the amount of area covered by the sensor.
- Position motion sensors away from heavily traveled areas, including the favorite napping spot or food bowl.
- Turn off your alarms via your mobile security app when you’re on your way home -- especially if your furry friend has a tendency to jump around the door or window when you walk up the front steps.
- Schedule a smart light to activate to relax an uptight pet after the sun goes down.
The capability of handling these changes makes Vivint the best pet-friendly home security system in Erie.
