As you notice the tail start moving when you walk through the door, you know why you always wanted a dog for your [[targerlocation]] family. With that in mind, some animals are inclined to set off alarms on different types of home security systems. And it appears that the bigger your dog is, the greater the chance they may be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn't it be nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Columbia?

If you have a dog, you need to think about the many benefits that come with Vivint’s alarms and cameras. First of all, you can rework the sensors to exclude areas where your animals usually wander about. Second, use your indoor security cameras with HD night vision and motion sensing capabilities to maintain a close watch of your pet. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system should be easy to use so you can rapidly activate and deactivate your home’s defense as needed.

Adjust your sensors to avoid your pet

Current window, door, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than past options. Cats and smaller dogs aren’t likely to have any trouble avoiding an inadvertent tripping of the sensor, as the system can adapt to them. More sizable dogs and rambunctious animals will have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but there are ways you can reduce that risk with a few changes on the Vivint app.

  • Set the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You are also able to adjust the size of the perimeter of the sensor.
  • Position motion detection devices away from frequented places, including the favorite napping spot or food bowl.
  • Turn off your alarms via your smartphone app when you’re on your way home -- specifically if your furry friend likes to leap toward secured doors or windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Schedule a smart light to illuminate to relax an uptight pet after the sun goes down.

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

Use your indoor video cams to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor video cameras with 2-way talk are an excellent way for pet parents to check on their furry friends while at work or vacation through your easy-to-use cell phone app. Your surveillance systems can even pick up your pet in lower levels of light in full high definition, so you’re able to catch a glimpse of what’s going on in the common areas without leaving the bed. Whenever your cameras detect unusual motion, you may have a short video segment sent to your phone to ascertain if it's your dog or an intruder.

Your Vivint surveillance systems are also nice devices for dogs who scare easily. If you find them starting to act up, talk to them via the two-way audio feature. They will notice your voice and know that it's ok. Additionally, if you discover that they are stressed in a thunderstorm, you can remotely turn on a light to make things less scary.

The most dog-friendly home security system in Columbia is a breeze to use

These dog-friendly features are great, but they wouldn't help a great deal if they were a challenge to use. The gratifying aspect about a smart home system like Vivint's is that all your tools are included in both your central hub interface and your cell phone app. Feel free to arrange your devices around your unique household -- including the pets! All it requires is a few button taps and you have your whole system under control.
