Not much is more rewarding than owning a dog in St. George. With that in mind, some furry friends have been known to set off alarms on different types of home security systems. And it stands to reason that the bigger your pooch is, the greater the chance they may be the source of a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be helpful if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in St. George?

Vivint's smart home systems have many tools ideal for families with pets. First of all, you can modify the sensors to exclude spaces where pets typically roam. Second, make use of your indoor surveillance devices with high definition night vision and motion detecting capabilities to keep an eye on your animals. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be easy to interact with so you may swiftly activate and deactivate your home’s defense as required.

Set your sensors to avoid your pet

Current motion, door, and window sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Small dogs or cats shouldn’t have any trouble averting an accidental triggering of the sensor, as the system are capable of adjusting. More sizable dogs and rambunctious pets might have an increased possibility of false alarms, but there are ways you can lessen that chance with some changes on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Adjust the motion detection sensitivity to low. You may even modify the amount of area covered by the motion detector.
  • Place motion detection devices away from high-traffic spots, like the favorite napping spot or food dish.
  • Deactivate your alarms with your smartphone app when you’re getting close to the house -- specifically if your furry friend likes to leap toward your front door or nearby windows when you're walking in.
  • Set smart lighting to turn on to soothe an anxious dog when it gets dark.

The ability to make these modifications makes Vivint the leading pet-friendly home security system in St. George.

Use your indoor video cams to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with two-way talk are an excellent method for pet parents to soothe their furry friends while at work or vacation through your helpful mobile app. Your surveillance devices even have the ability to give you a visual of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high-def, so you may catch a glimpse of what’s going on in the common areas without leaving the bed. Whenever your cameras detect abnormal motion, you can have a smart clip delivered to your cell phone to see if it's your dog or an intruder.

Your Vivint cameras are also nice devices for dogs with behavioral concerns. If you find them starting to become distressed, talk to them via the two-way audio feature. They can notice your speech and know that all is fine. Or, if you discover that they are troubled in a storm, you may remotely activate a light to make things less alarming.

The best dog-friendly home security system in St. George is simple to manage

All of the animal-friendly features are awesome, but they wouldn't benefit you all that much if they were a challenge to use. The gratifying part about a smart home package like Vivint's is that the many tools are included in both your centralized control panel and your mobile security app. Go ahead and arrange your equipment around your unique household -- and don’t forget your furry companions! All it requires are a few touches of a button and you have your entire home defense package under control.
