The steadfast companionship and love a dog delivers to your family in Pittsburgh truly makes them a part of your family. With that in mind, some furry friends are inclined to trigger sensors on various home security systems. And it stands to reason that the more substantial your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they may be the source of a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it beneficial if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Pittsburgh?

Vivint's home security alarms have many tools that make sense for pet-loving families. To start with, you are able to adjust the sensors to exclude areas where your animals usually wander about. Second, use your indoor video cameras with high-def night vision and motion detecting capacity to keep an eye on your animals. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system should be simple to control so you may quickly arm and disarm your property’s security as you need.

Adjust your sensors to avoid dogs

Today's motion, door, and window sensors are much more pet-friendly than previous devices. Cats and smaller dogs should have no issue averting an inadvertent triggering of the sensor, as the system can adapt to them. More sizable dogs and rowdy pets may have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you are able to lessen that chance with some adjustments on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Set the motion detection sensitivity to low. You may even alter the range of the sensor.
  • Position detectors away from heavily traveled areas, like your dog’s pet bed or food dish.
  • Disengage your alarms via your mobile security app when you’re getting close to the house -- especially if your furry friend has a tendency to leap toward the door or window as you walk in.
  • Schedule a smart bulb to turn on to relax an uneasy pet at night.

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

Utilize your indoor video cams to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor video cameras with 2-way talk are a great way for pet parents to soothe their animals while at work or vacation with your easy-to-use cell phone app. Your indoor cameras even have the ability to give you a visual of your pet in low-light situations in full high definition, so you’re able to observe what’s going on downstairs without even leaving your room. Whenever your video components notice unusual activity, you may have a smart clip delivered to your cell phone to ascertain if it's your animal or an intruder.

Your Vivint cameras are also great tools for dogs with anxiety. Whenever you see them begin to become distressed, talk to them by using the camera's speaker. They can detect your speech and know that it's ok. Or, if you find that they are troubled during inclement weather, you may remotely activate a light to make things less alarming.

The most dog-friendly home security system in Pittsburgh is easy to use

These dog-friendly features are awesome, but they wouldn't help much if they were a challenge to use. The gratifying thing about a smart home system like Vivint's is that the many controls are found in both your smart hub and your mobile security app. So set your devices around your unique household -- and that includes your dogs! All that is needed are some taps of your screen and you have your entire system under control.
