Whenever you see the tail start moving when you open the front door, you know why you wanted to get a dog for your [[targerlocation]] home. However, many animals have been known to set off a sensor on some home security systems. And it seems that the larger your dog is, the greater the likelihood they could be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn't it be helpful if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Bozeman?

If you share your home with a dog, you need to think about the range of benefits that come with Vivint’s smart home systems. First, you can modify the sensors to disregard areas where your four-legged friends usually wander about. Next, use your indoor video cameras with high-def night vision and motion detection functionality to keep an eye on your pet. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system should be simple to control so you can quickly arm and disarm your property’s security as required.

Program your sensors to allow for your pet

Today's door, window, and motion sensors are much more pet-friendly than previous devices. Small dogs or cats shouldn’t have any problem avoiding an inadvertent triggering of the sensor, as the devices are capable of adjusting. Larger dogs and rowdy animals will have an increased possibility of false alarms, but there are ways you can decrease that risk with a couple modifications on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Change the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You are also able to modify the range of the motion detector.
  • Place motion detection devices away from frequented places, including a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food bowl.
  • Deactivate your alarms via your mobile security app before you pull in the driveway -- especially if your dog has a tendency to bound past the door or window when you walk up the front steps.
  • Schedule a smart bulb to turn on to relax an uptight pet after the sun goes down.

The ability to make these modifications is why Vivint is the top pet-friendly home security system in Bozeman.

Turn to your indoor video cams to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor video cameras with 2-way talk are an excellent means for pet parents to look into their four-legged companions while away from home through your easy-to-use mobile app. Your surveillance systems even have the ability to give you a visual of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high-def, so you may see what is transpiring in the common areas without leaving the bed. In the event your video components pick up abnormal motion, you can have a smart clip dispatched to your mobile device to ascertain if it's your animal or a burglar.

Uneasiness and distressed behavior is fairly normal for dogs and if that happens to be the case with yours, Vivint surveillance devices could be advantageous for you. If you observe them beginning to act up, speak to them through the two-way audio feature. They will hear your speech and realize that it’s all right. Or, if you see that they are nervous during a storm, you can remotely turn on a light to make the scene less intimidating.
