The loyal companionship and happiness a dog delivers to your family in New Haven undeniably makes them a member of your family. With that in mind, many pets are inclined to trigger alarms on different types of home security systems. And it appears that the bigger your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they might be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn't it be nice if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in New Haven?

If you have a dog, you need to consider the range of benefits included in Vivint’s home security systems. To start with, you may modify the sensors to disregard locations where your animals usually wander about. Then, utilize your indoor video cameras with high definition night vision and motion detecting functionality to keep an eye on your pet. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be easy to use so you are able to rapidly activate and deactivate the system as required.

Adjust your sensors to allow for pets

Modern window, door, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than past options. Small dogs or cats should have no issue averting an unintentional tripping of the sensor, as the devices are capable of adjusting. Larger dogs and rambunctious animals may have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you are able to decrease that risk with some changes on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Adjust the motion detection sensitivity to low. You can also alter the size of the perimeter of the motion detector.
  • Place motion detection devices away from high-traffic spots, such as a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food bowl.
  • Deactivate your alarms via your cell phone app before you pull in the driveway -- especially if your pet likes to jump around secured doors or windows when you're walking in.
  • Program a smart light to illuminate to relax an uptight animal after the sun goes down.

Having the ability to handle these modifications makes Vivint the top pet-friendly home security system in New Haven.

Use your indoor video cams to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with two-way talk are an excellent means for homeowners to check on their furry friends while at work or vacation through your helpful mobile app. Your surveillance systems even have the ability to give you a visual of your pet in low-light situations in full HD, so you may see what is transpiring downstairs without leaving the bed. And if your cameras detect unusual activity, you are able to have a smart clip sent to your mobile device to ascertain if it's your pet or an intruder.

If your furry friend is afflicted by anxiety, your Vivint video devices could help. When you see them begin to become distressed, soothe them via the camera's speaker. They can hear your voice and know that it's ok. Additionally, if you see that they are troubled in a thunderstorm, you may remotely flip on a smart bulb to make the room less intimidating.

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

The many animal-friendly controls are fantastic, but they wouldn't mean much if they were a challenge to use. The good aspect about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that all your features are both on your smart hub and your cell phone app. Feel free to set your alarms around your way of life -- and that includes your pets! All it requires is a few button taps and you have your complete home security the way you want it.
