Whenever you notice the tail wagging when you walk through the door, you are reminded why you wanted to get a dog for your [[targerlocation]] home. However, many animals are inclined to set off alarms on different types of home security systems. And it stands to reason that the bigger your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they might cause a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it beneficial if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Burlington?

Vivint's smart home systems have many tools ideal for families with pets. To start with, you can rework the sensors to exclude areas where your four-legged friends usually wander about. Next, make use of your indoor video cameras with HD night vision and motion detection functionality to always have eyes on your furry housemates. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system should be simple to interact with so you may quickly arm and disarm the system as you need.

Adjust your sensors to avoid your pet

Today's motion, door, and window sensors are much more pet-friendly than previous devices. Cats and smaller dogs should have no trouble circumventing an accidental triggering of the sensor, as the equipment can adapt to them. More sizable dogs and rambunctious pets might have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you may lessen that risk with a couple changes on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Change the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You may even adjust the amount of area covered by the motion detector.
  • Install motion sensors away from high-traffic spots, including the favorite napping spot or feeding area.
  • Turn off your alarms via your smartphone app before you pull in the driveway -- specifically if your dog has a tendency to leap toward the door or window when you walk up the front steps.
  • Set a smart light to activate to soothe an uptight pet after the sun goes down.

The capability of handling these changes is why Vivint is the top pet-friendly home security system in Burlington.

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

Indoor video cameras with 2-way talk are an easy means for owners to soothe their four-legged companions while away from home with your helpful mobile app. Your surveillance devices will even provide a video feed of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high-def, so you can catch a glimpse of what is transpiring in the common areas without leaving the bed. Whenever your surveillance devices detect unexpected motion, you are able to have a video snippet delivered to your phone to ascertain if it's your pet or an intruder.

Your Vivint cameras are also great tools for dogs who scare easily. If you observe them beginning to become distressed, speak to them by using the camera's speaker. They will hear your voice and realize that it's ok. In addition, if you see that they are nervous with the onset of inclement weather, you can remotely turn on a smart bulb to make the room less alarming.

The leading dog-friendly home security system in Burlington is simple to operate

The many pet-friendly features are fantastic, but they wouldn't help much if they were hard to use.

All it requires is a few button taps and you have your whole home defense package under control.
