Not much is more rewarding than owning a dog in Alpharetta. Even so, some animals are inclined to trip alarms on some home security systems. And it appears that the more substantial your pooch is, the greater the chance they might be the reason for a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Alpharetta?

A perfect fit for families with dogs, Vivint home security systems give you a range of benefits. First, you can rework the sensors to ignore locations where your animals typically roam. Second, use your indoor surveillance devices with high definition night vision and motion detecting capacity to maintain a close watch of your animals. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be straightforward to use so you are able to swiftly engage and disengage your property’s security as required.

Adjust your sensors to allow for dogs

Today's door, window, and motion sensors are much more pet-friendly than before. Cats and smaller dogs should have no trouble circumventing an inadvertent sensor trip, as the system will adjust accordingly. More sizable dogs and rambunctious pets might have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you may reduce that chance with a few modifications on the Vivint app.

  • Set the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You are also able to alter the range of the motion detector.
  • Place motion sensors away from heavily traveled areas, including a pet’s preferred sleeping place or feeding area.
  • Turn off your alarms via your mobile security app before you pull in the driveway -- specifically if your pet is known to bound past secured doors or windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Set a smart light to illuminate to calm an anxious dog after the sun goes down.

Having the ability to handle these changes makes Vivint the top pet-friendly home security system in Alpharetta.

Turn to your indoor surveillance to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor video cameras with two-way talk are an easy means for owners to soothe their four-legged companions while away from home via your helpful smartphone app. Your surveillance devices even have the ability to pick up your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high definition, so you may catch a glimpse of what’s going on in the common areas without even leaving your room. And if your video components notice unexpected activity, you may have a video snippet dispatched to your mobile device to determine if it's your animal or an intruder.

Uneasiness and distressed behavior is commonplace for dogs and if that happens to be the case with yours, Vivint video equipment may be advantageous for you. If you observe them beginning to get uneasy, speak to them by using the two-way audio feature. They will detect your speech and know that it’s all right. Or, if you discover that they are stressed with the onset of a thunderstorm, you can remotely flip on a light to make the scene less scary.

The best dog-friendly home security system in Alpharetta is simple to manage

The many dog-friendly controls are awesome, but they wouldn't mean much if they were hard to operate. The nice part about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that all your controls are both on your central hub interface and your smartphone app. Go ahead and program your equipment around your family's lifestyle -- including the furry companions! All that is needed are a few touches of a button and you have your entire home defense package under control.
