There's nothing more rewarding than having a dog in Appleton. Even so, some animals have been known to set off alarms on various home security systems. And it stands to reason that the larger your dog is, the greater the likelihood they could be the source of a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be nice if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Appleton?
Vivint's smart home security system has several features ideal for families with pets. First, you may modify the sensors to exclude locations where your animals usually wander about. Then, make use of your indoor surveillance devices with HD night vision and motion sensing capabilities to always have eyes on your pet. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be simple to control so you are able to swiftly engage and disengage the system as required.
Set your sensors to account for dogs
Today's window, door, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than before. Small dogs or cats shouldn’t have any issue averting an accidental triggering of the sensor, as the equipment can adapt to them. Larger dogs and rambunctious animals will have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you are able to decrease that likelihood with a few adjustments on the Vivint smartphone app.
- Set the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You are also able to alter the amount of area covered by the motion detector.
- Place motion sensors away from frequented places, such as your dog’s pet bed or feeding area.
- Turn off your alarms with your cell phone app before you pull in the driveway -- particularly if your dog has a tendency to bound past the door or window when you walk up the front steps.
- Set a smart light to turn on to calm an anxious pet after the sun goes down.
The ability to make these adjustments ranks Vivint as the top pet-friendly home security system in Appleton.
