Not much is as satisfying as sharing your home with a dog in Albany. With that in mind, quite a few furry friends can trip sensors on various home security systems. And it appears that the larger your pooch is, the more likely they could cause a false alarm. So wouldn't it be beneficial if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Albany?

Vivint's home security alarms have built-in features that are perfect for pet-loving families. First of all, you may adjust the sensors to exclude spaces where pets are most active. Second, use your indoor video cameras with high definition night vision and motion detection capacity to always have eyes on your furry housemates. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be easy to control so you can quickly engage and disengage your property’s security as needed.

Program your sensors to allow for your pet

Modern window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Small dogs or cats should have no trouble circumventing an accidental sensor trip, as the equipment will adjust accordingly. Larger dogs and rowdy animals may have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you may decrease that likelihood with a few modifications on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Change the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You are also able to adjust the amount of area covered by the motion detector.
  • Place motion sensors away from high-traffic spots, such as a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food bowl.
  • Turn off your alarms with your cell phone app before you pull in the driveway -- particularly if your dog is known to leap toward your front door or nearby windows when you're walking in.
  • Schedule smart lighting to turn on to calm an uptight animal after the sun goes down.

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

Utilize your indoor surveillance to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor video cameras with 2-way talk are a great way for owners to soothe their furry friends while away from home with your easy-to-use cell phone app. Your surveillance devices even have the ability to provide a video feed of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high-def, so you can observe what is transpiring downstairs without getting out of bed. Whenever your surveillance devices notice unusual motion, you are able to have a smart clip dispatched to your cell phone to ascertain if it's your pet or a burglar.

Your Vivint video components are also great tools for dogs who scare easily. Whenever you see them begin to get uneasy, speak to them by using the two-way audio feature. They should notice your voice and know that all is fine. Additionally, if you find that they are troubled during a thunderstorm, you may remotely flip on lighting to make things less intimidating.

The best dog-friendly home security system in Albany is a breeze to use

The many animal-friendly features are great, but they wouldn't help all that much if they were a challenge to use. The nice thing about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that all your tools are included in both your centralized control panel and your cell phone app. So set your alarms around your way of life -- and that includes your dogs! Then, all it takes are some taps of your screen and you have your complete home security under control.
