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.

Use your indoor security cameras to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor security cameras with two-way talk are an easy means for pet parents to look into their animals while away from home with your helpful cell phone app. Your surveillance systems can even provide a video feed of your pet in low-light situations in full HD, so you’re able to see what they are doing downstairs without getting out of bed. And if your video components pick up unexpected motion, you can have a video snippet dispatched to your mobile device to see if it's your animal or a burglar.

If your loyal companion suffers from anxiety, your Vivint surveillance systems may be helpful. If you find them starting to get uneasy, soothe them via the camera's speaker. They can detect your speech and know that all is fine. Or, if you discover that they are nervous in a storm, you may remotely turn on lighting to make the room less scary.

The leading dog-friendly home security system in Erie is simple to use

These animal-friendly features are great, but they wouldn't help much if they were hard to operate. The gratifying part about a smart home package like Vivint's is that all your tools are included in both your centralized control panel and your smartphone app. Go ahead and set your equipment around your family's lifestyle -- and don’t forget your pets! All that is needed is a few button taps and you have your whole home security the way you want it.
