Whenever you notice the tail wagging when you walk through the door, you know why you wanted to get a dog for your [[targerlocation]] family. With that in mind, some furry friends are inclined to set off a sensor on different types of home security systems. And it appears that the larger your dog is, the more likely they may be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Peoria?

Perfectly suited for dog owners, Vivint home security systems give you a range of benefits. First of all, you may modify the sensors to disregard locations where your animals typically roam. Next, make use of your indoor security cameras with high definition night vision and motion detection capabilities to always have eyes on your pet. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system should be easy to use so you can rapidly activate and deactivate the system as required.

Set your sensors to avoid dogs

Modern door, window, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Small dogs or cats shouldn’t have any trouble avoiding an accidental tripping of the sensor, as the devices can adapt to them. More sizable dogs and rowdy pets may have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but there are ways you can decrease that chance with some modifications on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Adjust the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You may even adjust the range of the motion detector.
  • Position detectors 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 -- especially if your pet has a tendency to bound past secured doors or windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Schedule a smart light to turn on to soothe an uneasy animal at night.

The capability of handling these modifications makes Vivint the top pet-friendly home security system in Peoria.

Turn to your indoor security cameras to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor video cameras with 2-way talk are an easy way for homeowners to look into their animals while working or traveling with your easy-to-use cell phone app. Your surveillance devices can even provide a video feed of your pet in low-light situations in full HD, so you may observe what is transpiring downstairs without getting out of bed. And if your surveillance devices pick up abnormal movements, you can have a video snippet sent to your phone to determine if it's your pet or a burglar.

Your Vivint surveillance systems are also nice tools for dogs with behavioral concerns. If you see them begin to get uneasy, talk to them via the camera's speaker. They should notice your speech and realize that it’s all right. Or, if you see that they are nervous with the onset of inclement weather, you can remotely activate a smart bulb to make the scene less intimidating.

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

All of the dog-friendly features are fantastic, but they wouldn't mean a great deal if they were hard to operate. The good aspect about a smart home package like Vivint's is that the many features are both on your central hub interface and your mobile security app. Feel free to program your alarms around your family's lifestyle -- and that includes your furry companions! Then, all it takes is a few button taps and you have your entire system set up and ready to go.
