When you see the tail start moving when you walk through the door, you know why you always wanted a dog for your [[targerlocation]] home. Even so, some animals have been known to trigger alarms on different types of home security systems. And it seems that the more substantial your dog is, the greater the chance they might be the reason for a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be nice if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Austin?

Vivint's smart home security system has several features ideal for families with pets. First of all, you may adjust the sensors to exclude locations where your animals typically roam. Then, make use of your indoor security cameras with HD night vision and motion sensing capabilities to always have eyes on your furry housemates. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system ought to be easy to interact with so you can swiftly engage and disengage the system as you need.

Program your sensors to avoid dogs

Today's window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Cats and smaller dogs shouldn’t have any trouble avoiding an unintentional tripping of the sensor, as the equipment can adapt to them. Larger dogs and rambunctious animals might have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but there are ways you can reduce that chance with some changes on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Change the motion detection sensitivity to low. You may even alter the size of the perimeter of the sensor.
  • Install motion detection devices away from high-traffic spots, including your dog’s pet bed or feeding area.
  • Turn off your alarms via your cell phone app when you’re getting close to the house -- particularly if your dog has a tendency to jump around the door or window as you walk in.
  • Set smart lighting to illuminate to soothe an uneasy pet after the sun goes down.

The capability of handling these modifications ranks Vivint as the leading pet-friendly home security system in Austin.

Utilize your indoor security cameras to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with two-way talk are an easy method for pet parents to look into their four-legged companions while working or traveling through your intuitive cell phone app. Your indoor cameras can even give you a visual of your pet in low-light situations in full high-def, so you may see what’s going on downstairs without leaving the bed. In the event your surveillance devices pick up abnormal activity, you may have a short video segment sent to your phone to see if it's your pet or an intruder.

Your Vivint video components are also nice devices for dogs who scare easily. Whenever you find them starting to get uneasy, talk to them by using the camera's speaker. They will hear your vocalization and understand that it's ok. In addition, if you discover that they are stressed in a thunderstorm, you can remotely flip on a light to make the scene less alarming.

The leading dog-friendly home security system in Austin is easy to operate

All of the pet-friendly features are fantastic, but they wouldn't benefit you all that much if they were a challenge to operate. The nice part about a smart home package like Vivint's is that all your features are found in both your central hub interface and your cell phone app. Go ahead and program your equipment around your way of life -- and don’t forget your furry companions!
