The loyal companionship and love a dog bestows upon your home in Joliet really makes them a member of your family. However, some pets can trip a sensor on some home security systems. And it appears that the more substantial your pooch is, the greater the chance they could be the reason for a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Joliet?

If you have a dog, you need to take into consideration the many benefits that come with Vivint’s home security systems. To start with, you are able to modify the sensors to exclude areas where your four-legged friends are most active. Second, utilize your indoor security cameras with HD night vision and motion sensing functionality to always have eyes on your furry housemates. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system should be simple to control so you are able to rapidly activate and deactivate your property’s security as you need.

Set your sensors to avoid dogs

Today's window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than previous devices. Cats and smaller dogs aren’t likely to have any problem averting an inadvertent triggering of the sensor, as the system are capable of adjusting. Larger dogs and rowdy animals might have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you may decrease that likelihood with a couple modifications on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Change the motion detection sensitivity to low. You can also adjust the range of the sensor.
  • Install motion detection devices away from heavily traveled areas, like your dog’s pet bed or food dish.
  • Disengage your alarms with your mobile security app when you’re on your way home -- specifically if your furry friend has a tendency to jump around secured doors or windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Set a smart bulb to illuminate to soothe an uptight animal after the sun goes down.

Having the ability to handle these adjustments is why Vivint is the best pet-friendly home security system in Joliet.

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

Indoor video cameras with 2-way talk are a great method for pet parents to check on their animals while away from home through your easy-to-use mobile app. Your surveillance devices will even provide a video feed of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full HD, so you’re able to observe what is transpiring in the common areas without even leaving your room. Whenever your surveillance devices pick up unusual activity, you may have a short video segment sent to your phone to determine if it's your pet or an intruder.

Your Vivint surveillance systems are also nice tools for dogs with anxiety. If you observe them beginning to become distressed, soothe them via the two-way audio feature. They should detect your vocalization and know that all is fine. Additionally, if you see that they are troubled in inclement weather, you may remotely flip on a light to make the scene less scary.

The most dog-friendly home security system in Joliet is easy to operate

The many pet-friendly controls are great, but they wouldn't benefit you all that much if they were a challenge to manage. The good part about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that all your tools are both on your central hub interface and your cell phone app. Feel free to arrange your alarms around your family's lifestyle -- including the furry companions! All it requires are a few touches of a button and you have your complete system under control.
