When you see the tail start moving when you enter your house, you know why you wanted to get a dog for your [[targerlocation]] home. However, some furry friends can set off sensors on various home security systems. And it appears that the larger your dog is, the greater the likelihood they could cause a false alarm. So wouldn't it be helpful if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Manchester?

A perfect fit for families with dogs, Vivint smart homes offer a range of benefits. First, you are able to modify the sensors to disregard areas where your animals are most active. Next, use your indoor security cameras with high definition night vision and motion sensing capabilities to always have eyes on your animals. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be easy to interact with so you can quickly arm and disarm your property’s security as required.

Program your sensors to allow for dogs

Modern window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than previous devices. Small dogs or cats shouldn’t have any trouble circumventing an inadvertent tripping of the sensor, as the equipment are capable of adjusting. Bigger dogs and rambunctious pets might have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you may reduce that likelihood with some adjustments on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Adjust the motion detection sensitivity to low. You can also alter the amount of area covered by the device.
  • Install motion sensors away from heavily traveled areas, like a pet’s preferred sleeping place or feeding area.
  • Turn off your alarms with your mobile security app before you pull in the driveway -- particularly if your dog likes to bound past the door or window as you walk in.
  • Program a smart bulb to activate to soothe an anxious pet when it gets dark.

The ability to make these changes is why Vivint is the leading pet-friendly home security system in Manchester.

Turn to your indoor video cams to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor video cameras with 2-way talk are an excellent way for homeowners to look into their furry friends while away from home via your intuitive mobile app. Your surveillance systems even have the ability to pick up your pet in low-light situations in full high definition, so you’re able to see what is transpiring downstairs without getting out of bed. And if your video components pick up unusual motion, you can have a smart clip delivered to your phone to see if it's your pet or a burglar.

Your Vivint video components are also fantastic options for dogs who scare easily. Whenever you find them starting to become distressed, soothe them via the camera's speaker. They can detect your vocalization and understand that all is fine. Or, if you see that they are stressed during a thunderstorm, you can remotely turn on lighting to make the room less alarming.

The leading dog-friendly home security system in Manchester is easy to manage

All of the dog-friendly controls are great, but they wouldn't mean a great deal if they were difficult to use. The gratifying thing about a smart home system like Vivint's is that the various features are included in both your smart hub and your smartphone app. Feel free to set your equipment around your family's lifestyle -- and don’t forget your pets! Then, all it takes are some taps of your screen and you have your whole system under control.
