As you see the tail start moving when you enter your house, you are reminded why you always wanted a dog for your [[targerlocation]] home. With that in mind, some furry friends have been known to set off a sensor on various home security systems. And it stands to reason that the larger your dog is, the greater the likelihood they might be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn't it be helpful if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Davenport?

As a dog owner, you ought to take into consideration the various benefits that come with Vivint’s alarms and cameras. First, you can rework the sensors to ignore areas where pets usually wander about. Second, make use of your indoor video cameras with high-def night vision and motion detection functionality to always have eyes on your furry housemates. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system should be easy to control so you may swiftly arm and disarm the system as you need.

Adjust your sensors to account for your pet

Current door, window, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than previous devices. Smaller animals aren’t likely to have any problem circumventing an unintentional triggering of the sensor, as the equipment will adjust accordingly. Larger dogs and rowdy pets may have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but there are ways you can decrease that likelihood with a few modifications on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Adjust the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You can also modify the amount of area covered by the sensor.
  • Position detectors away from high-traffic spots, including a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food dish.
  • Disengage your alarms with your mobile security app before you pull in the driveway -- particularly if your dog has a tendency to jump around your front door or nearby windows as you walk in.
  • Schedule smart lighting to turn on to relax an uptight animal after the sun goes down.

The ability to make these modifications makes Vivint the top pet-friendly home security system in Davenport.

Utilize your indoor surveillance to maintain a watch on your dog

In the event your cameras detect unexpected motion, you can have a smart clip dispatched to your mobile device to ascertain if it's your dog or an intruder.

If your dog is afflicted by anxiety, your Vivint surveillance systems can actually help. Whenever you see them begin to get uneasy, speak to them by using the camera's speaker. They will detect your speech and realize that all is fine. In addition, if you see that they are nervous in a storm, you might remotely flip on a smart bulb to make the scene less alarming.
