The steadfast companionship and joy a dog bestows upon your family in Richmond really makes them a member of your family. However, quite a few furry friends are inclined to set off a sensor on some home security systems. And it seems that the bigger your dog is, the greater the likelihood they may be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn't it be beneficial if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Richmond?
Vivint's smart home security system has built-in options that are perfect for families with pets. First of all, you are able to modify the sensors to disregard spaces where pets typically roam. Next, utilize your indoor security cameras with high-def night vision and motion detection functionality to keep an eye on your furry housemates. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be easy to control so you are able to rapidly engage and disengage your home’s defense as needed.
Adjust your sensors to avoid your pet
Modern window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than past options. Smaller animals aren’t likely to have any trouble averting an accidental tripping of the sensor, as the devices can adapt to them. Bigger dogs and exuberant animals may have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you may reduce that risk with a couple adjustments on the Vivint app.
- Change the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You are also able to alter the amount of area covered by the motion detector.
- Place motion sensors away from frequented places, including the favorite napping spot or food dish.
- Deactivate your alarms with your smartphone app when you’re on your way home -- especially if your dog is known to leap toward secured doors or windows when you walk up the front steps.
- Set a smart bulb to turn on to relax an anxious animal when it gets dark.
The capability of handling these changes makes Vivint the leading pet-friendly home security system in Richmond.
