When you notice the tail swaying back and forth when you enter your house, you are reminded why you thought it was a good idea to get a dog for your [[targerlocation]] family. Even so, quite a few pets are inclined to trigger sensors on various home security systems. And it seems that the bigger your dog is, the greater the likelihood they may be the source of a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be beneficial if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in San Francisco?

As a dog owner, you need to think about the range of benefits found in Vivint’s alarms and cameras. First, you can adjust the sensors to ignore areas where your animals typically roam. Second, utilize your indoor surveillance devices with high definition night vision and motion detection capacity to always have eyes on your animals. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system should be straightforward to interact with so you can rapidly arm and disarm the system as required.

Adjust your sensors to avoid your pet

Today's window, door, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than past options. Cats and smaller dogs should have no trouble circumventing an unintentional sensor trip, as the equipment will adjust accordingly. More sizable dogs and rowdy animals will have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you are able to lessen that likelihood with a couple adjustments on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Change the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You can also alter the range of the device.
  • Place detectors away from frequented places, such as the favorite napping spot or feeding area.
  • Turn off your alarms with your mobile security app before you pull in the driveway -- particularly if your pet is known to bound past secured doors or windows when you're walking in.
  • Program smart lighting to turn on to calm an uptight dog after the sun goes down.

The capability of handling these changes makes Vivint the leading pet-friendly home security system in San Francisco.

Turn to your indoor surveillance to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with 2-way talk are a great means for pet parents to look into their four-legged companions while away from home via your helpful mobile app. Your surveillance systems even have the ability to give you a visual of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high-def, so you’re able to catch a glimpse of what’s going on throughout the house without getting out of bed. In the event your video components detect abnormal motion, you are able to have a short video segment sent to your phone to see if it's your pet or a burglar.

Your Vivint video components are also nice devices for dogs with anxiety. Whenever you see them begin to get uneasy, speak to them by using the camera's speaker. They can detect your voice and realize that all is fine. In addition, if you see that they are troubled with the onset of a thunderstorm, you might remotely flip on lighting to make the scene less intimidating.

The best dog-friendly home security system in San Francisco is easy to manage

The many dog-friendly features are awesome, but they wouldn't mean all that much if they were hard to operate. The gratifying thing about a smart home package like Vivint's is that the many features are included in both your centralized control panel and your mobile security app. So set your alarms around your unique household -- and don’t forget your furry companions! All that is needed is a few button taps and you have your entire home security under control.
