The loyal companionship and joy a dog delivers to your family in Fort Lauderdale truly makes them a part of your family. However, some furry friends can trip alarms on some home security systems. And it stands to reason that the larger your pooch is, the greater the chance they may be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn't it be nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Fort Lauderdale?

Vivint's smart home security system has built-in options that are perfect for pet-loving families. To start with, you are able to rework the sensors to ignore areas where your four-legged friends typically roam. Next, utilize your indoor security cameras with HD night vision and motion detecting capacity to keep an eye on your furry housemates. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system ought to be simple to control so you may swiftly arm and disarm your home’s defense as required.

Set your sensors to account for your pet

Modern door, window, and motion sensors are much more pet-friendly than previous devices. Smaller animals shouldn’t have any trouble averting an unintentional sensor trip, as the equipment will adjust accordingly. Bigger dogs and rambunctious pets might have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you may decrease that risk with some changes on the Vivint app.

  • Adjust the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You are also able to alter the amount of area covered by the sensor.
  • Place detectors away from high-traffic spots, such as your dog’s pet bed or food bowl.
  • Deactivate your alarms via your smartphone app before you pull in the driveway -- especially if your furry friend likes to jump around the door or window when you walk up the front steps.
  • Schedule smart lighting to turn on to calm an uneasy animal at night.

Having the ability to handle these changes ranks Vivint as the best pet-friendly home security system in Fort Lauderdale.

Turn to your indoor surveillance to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with 2-way talk are an easy way for pet parents to look into their four-legged companions while at work or vacation through your intuitive cell phone app. Your surveillance systems even have the ability to pick up your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full HD, so you’re able to catch a glimpse of what is transpiring downstairs without even leaving your room. And if your cameras notice unexpected activity, you are able to have a short video segment dispatched to your phone to see if it's your dog or a burglar.

Uneasiness and distressed behavior is commonplace for dogs and if that’s the case with your animal, Vivint surveillance devices could be of assistance. When you find them starting to get uneasy, talk to them through the camera's speaker. They will notice your vocalization and realize that all is fine. In addition, if you find that they are troubled with the onset of inclement weather, you might remotely activate a smart bulb to make the room less alarming.
