As you notice the tail swaying back and forth when you enter your house, you know why you thought it was a good idea to get a dog for your [[targerlocation]] family. Even so, some furry friends can set off alarms on some home security systems. And it seems that the larger your pooch is, the more likely they could cause a false alarm. So wouldn't it be nice if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Napa?

Vivint's home security alarms have several features ideal for pet-loving families. To start with, you can adjust the sensors to ignore areas where your four-legged friends are most active. Second, make use of your indoor surveillance devices with high-def night vision and motion sensing functionality to always have eyes on your animals. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system should be easy to use so you are able to swiftly arm and disarm your property’s security as you need.

Set your sensors to allow for pets

Modern window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Cats and smaller dogs shouldn’t have any trouble circumventing an unintentional sensor trip, as the devices can adapt to them. More sizable dogs and rambunctious animals may have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but you may reduce that chance with a couple changes on the Vivint app.

  • Set the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You may even alter the size of the perimeter of the motion detector.
  • Place motion sensors away from heavily traveled areas, such as your dog’s pet bed or food bowl.
  • Deactivate your alarms with your smartphone app before you pull in the driveway -- particularly if your dog is known to leap toward your front door or nearby windows when you're walking in.
  • Set a smart light to turn on to relax an anxious pet when it gets dark.

Having the ability to handle these modifications is why Vivint is the leading pet-friendly home security system in Napa.

Utilize your indoor video cams to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with 2-way talk are a great way for homeowners to soothe their furry friends while working or traveling via your helpful smartphone app. Your surveillance systems even have the ability to pick up your pet in low-light situations in full high-def, so you can observe what is transpiring in the common areas without even leaving your room. And if your video components notice unusual activity, you can have a video snippet sent to your phone to see if it's your animal or a burglar.

Anxiety is commonplace for dogs and if that’s the case with yours, Vivint cameras may be advantageous for you. Whenever you find them starting to get uneasy, talk to them by using the camera's speaker. They can detect your speech and realize that all is fine. Additionally, if you discover that they are troubled during inclement weather, you might remotely activate a smart bulb to make things less intimidating.

The best dog-friendly home security system in Napa is a breeze to manage

All of the dog-friendly options are fantastic, but they wouldn't benefit you all that much if they were hard to use. The good part about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that the various controls are found in both your centralized control panel and your smartphone app. So set your equipment around your way of life -- including the furry companions! All it requires is a few button taps and you have your entire home defense package the way you want it.
