The constant companionship and love a dog brings to your house in Stockton really makes them a part of your family. With that in mind, quite a few pets have been known to set off a sensor on different types of home security systems. And it appears that the bigger your dog is, the greater the chance they might be the source of a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it helpful if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Stockton?

A perfect fit for dog owners, Vivint smart homes provide a range of benefits. First, you can modify the sensors to exclude spaces where pets typically roam. Then, use your indoor surveillance devices with high definition night vision and motion detection functionality to maintain a close watch of your pet. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system should be straightforward to control so you are able to quickly engage and disengage your property’s security as you need.

Program your sensors to avoid pets

Current window, door, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than past options. Small dogs or cats shouldn’t have any issue avoiding an inadvertent sensor trip, as the devices can adapt to them. More sizable dogs and rambunctious pets will have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you are able to lessen that likelihood with a couple modifications on the Vivint app.

  • Change the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You can also adjust the amount of area covered by the motion detector.
  • Place motion sensors away from frequented places, such as the favorite napping spot or feeding area.
  • Turn off your alarms via your cell phone app when you’re getting close to the house -- particularly if your pet has a tendency to leap toward your front door or nearby windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Program a smart light to activate to calm an anxious dog at night.

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

Use your indoor video cams to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with 2-way talk are a great way for homeowners to look into their furry friends while away from home with your intuitive cell phone app. Your indoor cameras will even give you a visual of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high definition, so you may catch a glimpse of what’s going on downstairs without leaving the bed. And if your video components notice unusual activity, you can have a short video segment dispatched to your phone to determine if it's your pet or a burglar.

Anxiety is commonplace for dogs and if that happens to be the case with your four-legged friend, Vivint cameras can be of assistance. When you observe them beginning to act up, soothe them through the camera's speaker. They can detect your voice and understand that all is fine. In addition, if you find that they are nervous during inclement weather, you may remotely flip on a light to make things less scary.

The leading dog-friendly home security system in Stockton is easy to use

All of the dog-friendly controls are fantastic, but they wouldn't help much if they were difficult to operate. The good aspect about a smart home system like Vivint's is that the various controls are found in both your central hub interface and your cell phone app. So arrange your alarms 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.
