Few things are more rewarding than sharing your home with a dog in Dover. Even so, many animals can set off alarms on various home security systems. And it seems that the more substantial your dog is, the more likely they could be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Dover?

Vivint's smart home systems have built-in options that make sense for pet-loving families. First of all, you can rework the sensors to exclude locations where your animals typically roam. Next, utilize your indoor video cameras with high-def night vision and motion detection capacity to maintain a close watch of your furry housemates. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system ought to be simple to control so you are able to quickly engage and disengage the system as needed.

Program your sensors to avoid dogs

Today's motion, door, and window sensors are much more pet-friendly than past options. Smaller animals aren’t likely to have any problem circumventing an unintentional sensor trip, as the equipment will adjust accordingly. Bigger dogs and rambunctious animals might have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but there are ways you can decrease that chance with a few modifications on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Change the motion detection sensitivity to low. You may even alter the amount of area covered by the sensor.
  • Install motion sensors away from heavily traveled areas, like the favorite napping spot or feeding area.
  • Deactivate your alarms via your smartphone app when you’re getting close to the house -- especially if your dog is known to bound past secured doors or windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Set a smart light to turn on to soothe an anxious animal when it gets dark.

The ability to make these changes ranks Vivint as the leading pet-friendly home security system in Dover.

Use your indoor security cameras to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor security cameras with 2-way talk are an excellent means for homeowners to look into their animals while working or traveling through your intuitive smartphone app. Your indoor cameras even have the ability to give you a visual of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high definition, so you may see what they are doing downstairs without getting out of bed. And if your video components detect abnormal motion, you are able to have a smart clip sent to your cell phone to determine if it's your pet or an intruder.

Anxious behavior is common among dogs and if this is the situation with yours, Vivint cameras can be beneficial to you. When you find them starting to act up, talk to them by using the two-way audio feature. They can detect your voice and know that all is fine. Additionally, if you see that they are nervous with the onset of a thunderstorm, you can remotely flip on a light to make the scene less scary.

The most dog-friendly home security system in Dover is simple to operate

These animal-friendly controls are awesome, but they wouldn't benefit you all that much if they were hard to operate. The good thing about a smart home package like Vivint's is that the various controls are included in both your centralized control panel and your mobile security app. So arrange your equipment around your way of life -- and that includes your furry companions! All that is needed is a few button taps and you have your entire home security the way you want it.
