The loyal companionship and happiness a dog bestows upon your house in Lakeland really makes them a part of your family. However, quite a few furry friends have been known to set off sensors on various home security systems. And it stands to reason that the bigger your dog is, the greater the likelihood they could be the source of a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be nice if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Lakeland?

Vivint's home security alarms have several features that are perfect for families with pets. First, you can adjust the sensors to exclude areas where your animals usually wander about. Then, make use of your indoor video cameras with high-def night vision and motion detection functionality to keep an eye on your animals. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be simple to use so you are able to quickly activate and deactivate the system as needed.

Adjust your sensors to account for dogs

Today's window, door, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than previous devices. Small dogs or cats aren’t likely to have any issue avoiding an inadvertent tripping of the sensor, as the equipment can adapt to them. Larger dogs and rambunctious pets might have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but there are ways you can decrease that risk with a few adjustments on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Set the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You can also modify the size of the perimeter of the sensor.
  • Place motion detection devices away from frequented places, such as the favorite napping spot or food dish.
  • Disengage your alarms via your mobile security app before you pull in the driveway -- especially if your pet is known to bound past secured doors or windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Set a smart light to activate to calm an anxious pet after the sun goes down.

Having the ability to handle these modifications makes Vivint the leading pet-friendly home security system in Lakeland.

Utilize your indoor surveillance to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor security cameras with 2-way talk are an excellent way for homeowners to look into their four-legged companions while away from home with your intuitive mobile app. Your surveillance systems will even provide a video feed of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full HD, so you can see what they are doing throughout the house without getting out of bed. And if your cameras detect unusual motion, you may have a video snippet sent to your mobile device to determine if it's your dog or an intruder.

Anxious behavior is fairly normal for dogs and if this is the situation with yours, Vivint cameras could be beneficial to you. When you observe them beginning to become distressed, speak to them via the two-way audio feature. They will detect your speech and know that all is fine. In addition, if you find that they are troubled in inclement weather, you may remotely turn on a smart bulb to make things less alarming.

The many pet-friendly features are fantastic, but they wouldn't mean all that much if they were difficult to manage.

All that is needed are some taps of your screen and you have your complete home defense package under control.
