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.
