As you notice the tail start moving when you walk through the door, you are reminded why you always wanted a dog for your [[targerlocation]] family. With that in mind, some pets are inclined to trigger alarms on various home security systems. And it appears that the bigger your dog is, the greater the chance they might cause a false alarm. So wouldn't it be nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in West Bloomfield?

If you have a dog, you will want to take into consideration the range of benefits found in Vivint’s smart home systems. First of all, you can rework the sensors to exclude spaces where pets typically roam. Then, make use of your indoor security cameras with HD night vision and motion sensing capabilities to always have eyes on your furry housemates. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be simple to control so you are able to rapidly arm and disarm your home’s defense as you need.

Program your sensors to account for dogs

Today's window, door, and motion sensors are much more pet-friendly than past options. Cats and smaller dogs should have no issue avoiding an accidental sensor trip, as the equipment can adapt to them. Bigger dogs and rowdy pets will have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but you may decrease that risk with a few modifications on the Vivint app.

  • Adjust the motion detection sensitivity to low. You may even adjust the range of the device.
  • Place motion detection devices away from heavily traveled areas, like a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food bowl.
  • Turn off your alarms via your mobile security app when you’re on your way home -- specifically if your dog likes to leap toward the door or window when you're walking in.
  • Set a smart bulb to illuminate to soothe an anxious dog at night.

Having the ability to handle these adjustments ranks Vivint as the top pet-friendly home security system in West Bloomfield.

Use your indoor security cameras to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with 2-way talk are an easy means for pet parents to soothe their four-legged companions while away from home with your helpful mobile app. Your indoor cameras will even pick up your pet in low-light situations in full high-def, so you may see what’s going on in the common areas without leaving the bed. In the event your cameras notice unexpected motion, you can have a video snippet sent to your mobile device to ascertain if it's your animal or an intruder.

Your Vivint cameras are also great devices for dogs who scare easily. When you find them starting to get uneasy, talk to them via the camera's speaker. They will notice your vocalization and understand that all is fine. In addition, if you find that they are troubled with the onset of inclement weather, you can remotely flip on a smart bulb to make the scene less scary.
