As you see the tail wagging when you open the front door, you know why you thought it was a good idea to get a dog for your [[targerlocation]] family. With that in mind, many furry friends can trigger a sensor on various home security systems. And it seems that the larger your pooch is, the greater the chance they might be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn't it be helpful if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Chico?

A perfect fit for people with dogs, Vivint alarms and cameras provide a range of benefits. To start with, you may adjust the sensors to exclude areas where your animals usually wander about. Second, make use of your indoor security cameras with HD night vision and motion sensing functionality to always have eyes on your pet. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be straightforward to control so you can quickly engage and disengage the system as you need.

Set your sensors to account for your pet

Today's window, door, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than previous devices. Smaller animals should have no trouble averting an inadvertent tripping of the sensor, as the system will adjust accordingly. More sizable dogs and rambunctious pets might have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you may decrease that chance with a few modifications on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Adjust the motion detection sensitivity to low. You can also alter the range of the sensor.
  • Position detectors away from heavily traveled areas, such as a pet’s preferred sleeping place or feeding area.
  • Turn off your alarms with your mobile security app when you’re getting close to the house -- specifically if your pet likes to leap toward the door or window as you walk in.
  • Program smart lighting to turn on to soothe an anxious pet when it gets dark.

The ability to make these adjustments ranks Vivint as the best pet-friendly home security system in Chico.

Utilize your indoor surveillance to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor security cameras with 2-way talk are an easy means for owners to check on their furry friends while at work or vacation with your easy-to-use cell phone app. Your indoor cameras can even pick up your pet in low-light situations in full high-def, so you can see what they are doing in the common areas without leaving the bed. In the event your cameras detect unexpected activity, you can have a video snippet sent to your phone to ascertain if it's your dog or an intruder.

Your Vivint cameras are also nice devices for dogs with anxiety. If you find them starting to act up, soothe them through the two-way audio feature. They should detect your vocalization and understand that it’s all right. Or, if you find that they are stressed in a storm, you can remotely activate a smart bulb to make things less scary.

The leading dog-friendly home security system in Chico is a breeze to operate

All of the animal-friendly controls are great, but they wouldn't mean a great deal if they were difficult to use. The gratifying aspect about a smart home package like Vivint's is that all your controls are included in both your smart hub and your cell phone app. Go ahead and program your alarms around your unique household -- and that includes your furry companions! All that is needed is a few button taps and you have your whole system under control.
