Not much is more rewarding than having a dog in Fort Wayne. However, many animals have been known to trip a sensor on different types of home security systems. And it stands to reason that the larger your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they could cause a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be beneficial if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Fort Wayne?

If you share your home with a dog, you ought to take into consideration the many benefits found in Vivint’s home security systems. First of all, you can adjust the sensors to disregard areas where pets are most active. Second, use your indoor video cameras with high-def night vision and motion detecting capacity to keep an eye on your furry housemates. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be easy to control so you are able to swiftly arm and disarm the system as required.

Set your sensors to avoid your pet

Today's motion, door, and window sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than past options. Small dogs or cats should have no issue circumventing an accidental triggering of the sensor, as the equipment can adapt to them. Larger dogs and exuberant animals will have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you are able to reduce that likelihood with a couple modifications on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Set the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You can also modify the size of the perimeter of the device.
  • Place motion sensors away from frequented places, like a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food dish.
  • Turn off your alarms with your cell phone app when you’re on your way home -- specifically if your pet has a tendency to bound past your front door or nearby windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Set smart lighting to activate to relax an anxious animal after the sun goes down.

The capability of handling these adjustments is why Vivint is the best pet-friendly home security system in Fort Wayne.

Turn to your indoor security cameras to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor video cameras with 2-way talk are an excellent means for homeowners to look into their four-legged companions while working or traveling through your easy-to-use cell phone app. Your indoor cameras will even give you a visual of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full HD, so you can catch a glimpse of what is transpiring downstairs without leaving the bed. In the event your surveillance devices pick up unusual motion, you may have a smart clip delivered to your mobile device to see if it's your pet or an intruder.

Your Vivint video components are also nice tools for dogs with anxiety. When you see them begin to become distressed, speak to them through the camera's speaker. They can hear your vocalization and understand that it's ok. In addition, if you find that they are troubled in inclement weather, you can remotely turn on a smart bulb to make the scene less alarming.
