When you notice the tail start moving when you enter your house, you know why you always wanted a dog for your [[targerlocation]] home. Even so, some animals have been known to set off a sensor on various home security systems. And it appears that the larger your dog is, the greater the likelihood they may cause a false alarm. So wouldn't it be beneficial if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Modesto?

If you share your home with a dog, you ought to consider the various benefits found in Vivint’s alarms and cameras. To start with, you can adjust the sensors to exclude locations where your four-legged friends are most active. Second, utilize your indoor security cameras with HD night vision and motion sensing capacity to keep an eye on your pet. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system ought to be easy to use so you are able to quickly engage and disengage your property’s security as you need.

Program your sensors to allow for your pet

Modern door, window, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than before. Small dogs or cats should have no problem averting an unintentional tripping of the sensor, as the equipment can adapt to them. More sizable dogs and rambunctious pets will have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you may reduce that likelihood with some changes on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Set the motion detection sensitivity to low. You can also adjust the amount of area covered by the device.
  • Install motion sensors away from heavily traveled areas, like a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food dish.
  • Turn off your alarms with your mobile security app when you’re getting close to the house -- especially if your furry friend has a tendency to leap toward secured doors or windows when you're walking in.
  • Set smart lighting to turn on to soothe an uptight pet when it gets dark.

The ability to make these adjustments makes Vivint the leading pet-friendly home security system in Modesto.

Use your indoor surveillance to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with 2-way talk are an easy means for pet parents to look into their four-legged companions while working or traveling through your easy-to-use mobile app. Your surveillance systems will even give you a visual of your pet in lower levels of light in full HD, so you may catch a glimpse of what they are doing throughout the house without getting out of bed. And if your surveillance devices pick up abnormal movements, you may have a video snippet sent to your cell phone to see if it's your dog or a burglar.

Uneasiness and distressed behavior is fairly normal for dogs and if this is the situation with your four-legged friend, Vivint surveillance devices could be advantageous for you. When you find them starting to get uneasy, talk to them by using the two-way audio feature. They can hear your speech and realize that it’s all right. Or, if you see that they are stressed with the onset of a thunderstorm, you might remotely turn on lighting to make the room less alarming.
