There's nothing as satisfying as sharing your home with a dog in The Woodlands. With that in mind, quite a few furry friends have been known to set off a sensor on some home security systems. And it seems that the more substantial your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they might cause a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it nice if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in The Woodlands?

As a dog owner, you will want to take into consideration the various benefits found in Vivint’s home security systems. First of all, you may rework the sensors to ignore locations where pets usually wander about. Next, utilize your indoor surveillance devices with high definition night vision and motion detection functionality to always have eyes on your furry housemates. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system ought to be straightforward to control so you can quickly engage and disengage the system as you need.

Program your sensors to allow for pets

Today's motion, door, and window sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Smaller animals shouldn’t have any issue circumventing an unintentional triggering of the sensor, as the devices are capable of adjusting. More sizable dogs and exuberant pets will have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you are able to reduce that chance with a couple modifications on the Vivint app.

  • Set the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You can also adjust the size of the perimeter of the sensor.
  • Position detectors away from heavily traveled areas, including the favorite napping spot or feeding area.
  • Disengage your alarms via your cell phone app when you’re getting close to the house -- especially if your pet is known to jump around your front door or nearby windows when you're walking in.
  • Program a smart bulb to illuminate to relax an anxious dog when it gets dark.

The capability of handling these adjustments ranks Vivint as the best pet-friendly home security system in The Woodlands.

Use your indoor surveillance to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with 2-way talk are a great method for homeowners to look into their furry friends while working or traveling through your helpful cell phone app. Your indoor cameras can even pick up your pet in lower levels of light in full high definition, so you can see what they are doing in the common areas without leaving the bed. And if your video components pick up abnormal motion, you are able to have a short video segment sent to your mobile device to ascertain if it's your animal or an intruder.

Your Vivint video components are also nice options for dogs who scare easily. When you see them begin to get uneasy, speak to them through the two-way audio feature. They can detect your voice and know that it's ok. Or, if you discover that they are stressed with the onset of a storm, you might remotely flip on a light to make the scene less alarming.

The best dog-friendly home security system in The Woodlands is a breeze to use

These animal-friendly options are fantastic, but they wouldn't help all that much if they were a challenge to operate. The good thing about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that the various controls are included in both your centralized control panel and your cell phone app. So set your equipment around your way of life -- and don’t forget your pets! Then, all it takes are some taps of your screen and you have your whole home security the way you want it.
