Few things are as satisfying as owning a dog in Ogden. With that in mind, many animals are inclined to trip alarms on some home security systems. And it stands to reason that the more substantial your dog is, the more likely they might be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it helpful if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Ogden?

Vivint's smart home security system has several features that make sense for families with pets. First of all, you are able to rework the sensors to exclude spaces where your animals are most active. Second, use your indoor surveillance devices with high definition night vision and motion detecting functionality to keep an eye on your pet. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system ought to be simple to interact with so you can swiftly arm and disarm your property’s security as required.

Adjust your sensors to account for dogs

Today's door, window, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than previous devices. Smaller animals aren’t likely to have any problem circumventing an accidental triggering of the sensor, as the devices can adapt to them. Larger dogs and rowdy pets might have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but you may reduce that risk with a couple modifications on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Set the motion detection sensitivity to low. You may even modify the size of the perimeter of the motion detector.
  • Place motion detection devices away from heavily traveled areas, including a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food bowl.
  • Disengage your alarms with your smartphone app when you’re getting close to the house -- specifically if your dog is known to bound past your front door or nearby windows when you're walking in.
  • Set smart lighting to activate to relax an uneasy animal when it gets dark.

Having the ability to handle these modifications is why Vivint is the leading pet-friendly home security system in Ogden.

Turn to your indoor security cameras to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor video cameras with two-way talk are an easy way for pet parents to check on their furry friends while at work or vacation through your easy-to-use smartphone app. Your surveillance devices can even give you a visual of your pet in lower levels of light in full high definition, so you may catch a glimpse of what is transpiring throughout the house without leaving the bed. And if your cameras detect abnormal activity, you can have a smart clip dispatched to your phone to determine if it's your animal or an intruder.

If your furry friend is afflicted by anxiety, your Vivint surveillance systems could help. Whenever you observe them beginning to act up, soothe them via the camera's speaker. They should hear your speech and know that all is fine. Additionally, if you see that they are troubled in inclement weather, you might remotely activate a smart bulb to make the room less scary.

The most dog-friendly home security system in Ogden is simple to use

All of the pet-friendly features are great, but they wouldn't benefit you much if they were difficult to manage. The gratifying aspect about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that the various tools are found in both your central hub interface and your mobile security app. Feel free to arrange your equipment around your unique household -- and that includes your pets! All that is needed is a few button taps and you have your whole home security under control.
