The constant companionship and joy a dog brings to your home in Bend undeniably makes them a member of your family. With that in mind, some furry friends are inclined to trip a sensor on various home security systems. And it stands to reason that the more substantial your dog is, the greater the likelihood they may cause a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be helpful if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Bend?
Vivint's smart home systems have several options that make sense for pet owners. First, you may adjust the sensors to disregard areas where pets typically roam. Second, use your indoor video cameras with high-def night vision and motion sensing functionality to always have eyes on your animals. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system should be easy to use so you are able to quickly engage and disengage the system as needed.
Set your sensors to allow for your pet
Today's door, window, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than past options. Smaller animals aren’t likely to have any issue circumventing an inadvertent tripping of the sensor, as the equipment can adapt to them. More sizable dogs and exuberant animals might have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but you are able to lessen that risk with a couple adjustments on the Vivint smartphone app.
- Adjust the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You are also able to adjust the size of the perimeter of the device.
- Position detectors away from heavily traveled areas, such as a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food bowl.
- Disengage your alarms with your cell phone app when you’re on your way home -- especially if your dog has a tendency to jump around the door or window as you walk in.
- Set a smart light to activate to calm an anxious pet after the sun goes down.
Having the ability to handle these modifications is why Vivint is the best pet-friendly home security system in Bend.
