The constant companionship and happiness a dog bestows upon your home in Lake Havasu truly makes them a member of your family. However, some pets can trip a sensor on various home security systems. And it stands to reason that the bigger your pooch is, the greater the chance they might be the source of a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Lake Havasu?

Vivint's smart home systems have several tools ideal for pet-loving families. First of all, you are able to adjust the sensors to disregard locations where pets are most active. Next, utilize your indoor security cameras with high-def night vision and motion sensing capabilities to always have eyes on your furry housemates. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be easy to interact with so you may quickly activate and deactivate the system as needed.

Set your sensors to avoid your pet

Today's window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than previous devices. Small dogs or cats aren’t likely to have any issue avoiding an inadvertent tripping of the sensor, as the devices are capable of adjusting. Bigger dogs and rambunctious animals might have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you are able to reduce that risk with some changes on the Vivint app.

  • Adjust the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You may even adjust the amount of area covered by the motion detector.
  • Install motion sensors away from heavily traveled areas, including the favorite napping spot or feeding area.
  • Turn off your alarms with your smartphone app when you’re getting close to the house -- particularly if your furry friend likes to leap toward secured doors or windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Set a smart light to illuminate to relax an uneasy animal after the sun goes down.

Having the ability to handle these adjustments is why Vivint is the leading pet-friendly home security system in Lake Havasu.

Use your indoor video cams to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with 2-way talk are an excellent method for pet parents to check on their animals while working or traveling with your easy-to-use smartphone app. Your surveillance devices can even pick up your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full HD, so you can catch a glimpse of what they are doing throughout the house without getting out of bed. Whenever your cameras notice unexpected motion, you can have a video snippet sent to your phone to see if it's your dog or an intruder.

Your Vivint cameras are also nice options for dogs who scare easily. If you find them starting to become distressed, speak to them via the camera's speaker. They can notice your speech and know that it’s all right. Additionally, if you see that they are nervous with the onset of inclement weather, you can remotely activate a light to make the scene less scary.

The most dog-friendly home security system in Lake Havasu is a breeze to manage

The many animal-friendly controls are fantastic, but they wouldn't help all that much if they were difficult to use. The gratifying thing about a smart home package like Vivint's is that the many features are included in both your central hub interface and your smartphone app. So arrange your alarms around your family's lifestyle -- including the dogs! All it requires are a few touches of a button and you have your whole system set up and ready to go.
