As you notice the tail wagging when you open the front door, you are reminded why you wanted to get a dog for your [[targerlocation]] family. With that in mind, many furry friends are inclined to set off a sensor on various home security systems. And it stands to reason that the bigger your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they may cause a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be helpful if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Medford?

Vivint's smart home systems have many tools ideal for pet-loving families. First of all, you can rework the sensors to ignore locations where your animals typically roam. Then, utilize your indoor video cameras with HD night vision and motion sensing functionality to maintain a close watch of your pet. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system ought to be simple to interact with so you are able to swiftly arm and disarm your home’s defense as you need.

Adjust your sensors to allow for dogs

Today's door, window, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than previous devices. Cats and smaller dogs shouldn’t have any problem avoiding an inadvertent sensor trip, as the devices can adapt to them. More sizable dogs and rowdy pets may have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you may lessen that chance with a few adjustments on the Vivint app.

  • Adjust the motion detection sensitivity to low. You are also able to adjust the amount of area covered by the device.
  • Place motion detection devices away from heavily traveled areas, such as a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food dish.
  • Turn off your alarms with your cell phone app when you’re on your way home -- especially if your pet has a tendency to jump around your front door or nearby windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Program a smart bulb to illuminate to relax an anxious animal after the sun goes down.

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

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

Indoor security cameras with two-way talk are an easy way for homeowners to soothe their furry friends while away from home through your easy-to-use smartphone app. Your indoor cameras will even provide a video feed of your pet in low-light situations in full HD, so you’re able to catch a glimpse of what’s going on in the common areas without even leaving your room. Whenever your cameras pick up unexpected activity, you can have a short video segment delivered to your mobile device to see if it's your pet or a burglar.

Your Vivint surveillance systems are also nice options for dogs with anxiety. Whenever you observe them beginning to get uneasy, speak to them through the camera's speaker. They should detect your vocalization and understand that it’s all right. In addition, if you see that they are nervous in a thunderstorm, you can remotely activate a light to make the room less intimidating.

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

The many pet-friendly controls are fantastic, but they wouldn't benefit you all that much if they were hard to manage. The nice thing about a smart home package like Vivint's is that all your tools are found in both your central hub interface and your mobile security app. Feel free to program your alarms around your way of life -- and that includes your pets! All that is needed are a few touches of a button and you have your complete home security under control.
