Whenever you notice the tail wagging when you open the front door, you remember why you always wanted a dog for your [[targerlocation]] home. Even so, quite a few animals are inclined to trip sensors on different types of home security systems. And it seems that the larger your pooch is, the more likely they could cause a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be helpful if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Kingsport?
Vivint's smart home security system has several tools that are perfect for pet owners. First, you can modify the sensors to ignore spaces where pets are most active. Then, use your indoor video cameras with high-def night vision and motion sensing capabilities to always have eyes on your animals. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system should be simple to control so you can quickly engage and disengage the system as needed.
Set your sensors to avoid dogs
Today's door, window, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than past options. Smaller animals aren’t likely to have any problem avoiding an unintentional sensor trip, as the devices can adapt to them. Bigger dogs and rowdy animals will have an increased possibility of false alarms, but there are ways you can lessen that likelihood with a couple modifications on the Vivint app.
- Change the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You can also modify the amount of area covered by the device.
- Install detectors away from high-traffic spots, such as your dog’s pet bed or feeding area.
- Disengage your alarms via your smartphone app before you pull in the driveway -- particularly if your furry friend has a tendency to jump around the door or window when you're walking in.
- Program a smart bulb to illuminate to calm an uptight pet when it gets dark.
The ability to make these adjustments ranks Vivint as the leading pet-friendly home security system in Kingsport.
