The constant companionship and happiness a dog delivers to your home in Provo truly makes them an integral part of your family. With that in mind, some animals are inclined to trip alarms on some home security systems. And it seems that the bigger your dog is, the greater the likelihood they could be the reason for a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be helpful if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Provo?

As a dog owner, you will want to think about the range of benefits included in Vivint’s home security systems. First of all, you may rework the sensors to disregard spaces where your four-legged friends are most active. Second, use your indoor security cameras with high definition night vision and motion sensing capabilities to always have eyes on your furry housemates. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system should be simple to control so you may swiftly activate and deactivate your property’s security as needed.

Set your sensors to account for pets

Today's window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Cats and smaller dogs shouldn’t have any problem circumventing an inadvertent sensor trip, as the system can adapt to them. More sizable dogs and rambunctious animals may have an increased possibility of false alarms, but there are ways you can reduce that chance with a couple modifications on the Vivint smartphone 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, such as your dog’s pet bed or food dish.
  • Disengage your alarms with your mobile security app before you pull in the driveway -- particularly if your dog has a tendency to jump around secured doors or windows as you walk in.
  • Set a smart light to activate to relax an anxious animal when it gets dark.

The ability to make these modifications makes Vivint the top pet-friendly home security system in Provo.

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

Indoor security cameras with two-way talk are an easy means for pet parents to check on their animals while at work or vacation with your easy-to-use smartphone app. Your indoor cameras can even provide a video feed of your pet in low-light situations in full high definition, so you can observe what they are doing in the common areas without leaving the bed. In the event your cameras pick up unexpected movements, you may have a smart clip sent to your phone to determine if it's your dog or a burglar.

Anxiety is common among dogs and if that’s the case with yours, Vivint surveillance devices could be of assistance. If you find them starting to become distressed, speak to them through the camera's speaker. They can notice your speech and know that all is fine. Or, if you find that they are stressed during a thunderstorm, you may remotely turn on lighting to make the room less intimidating.

The best dog-friendly home security system in Provo is a breeze to manage

All of the dog-friendly options are fantastic, but they wouldn't mean much if they were hard to manage. The good aspect about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that the many tools are found in both your central hub interface and your mobile security app. So set your alarms around your family's lifestyle -- and that includes your pets! Then, all it takes are a few touches of a button and you have your whole home defense package under control.
