Few things are better than having a dog in Louisville. With that in mind, quite a few furry friends have been known to trigger a sensor on various home security systems. And it stands to reason that the larger your pooch is, the greater the chance they could cause a false alarm. So wouldn't it be beneficial if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Louisville?

Vivint's home security alarms have many tools that are perfect for families with pets. First of all, you can modify the sensors to exclude locations where pets usually wander about. Next, use your indoor security cameras with HD night vision and motion sensing capacity to always have eyes on your pet. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system should be easy to interact with so you may quickly arm and disarm the system as you need.

Program your sensors to account for dogs

Current motion, door, and window sensors are more accommodating to pets than past options. Cats and smaller dogs aren’t likely to have any issue circumventing an inadvertent sensor trip, as the devices will adjust accordingly. More sizable dogs and exuberant pets will have an increased possibility of false alarms, but there are ways you can reduce that chance with some changes on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Change the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You may even adjust the amount of area covered by the motion detector.
  • Position detectors away from heavily traveled areas, such as a pet’s preferred sleeping place or feeding area.
  • Disengage your alarms via your smartphone app when you’re getting close to the house -- especially if your pet is known to bound past the door or window when you're walking in.
  • Set a smart light to illuminate to relax an uptight pet when it gets dark.

The capability of handling these changes ranks Vivint as the best pet-friendly home security system in Louisville.

Utilize your indoor security cameras to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor video cameras with 2-way talk are an easy means for homeowners to look into their four-legged companions while working or traveling with your easy-to-use mobile app. Your indoor cameras even have the ability to pick up your pet in lower levels of light in full high definition, so you’re able to see what they are doing throughout the house without leaving the bed. In the event your surveillance devices pick up abnormal activity, you can have a video snippet dispatched to your mobile device to determine if it's your animal or a burglar.

Anxious behavior is fairly normal for dogs and if that happens to be the case with yours, Vivint surveillance devices could be advantageous for you. When you observe them beginning to act up, talk to them through the two-way audio feature. They can detect your vocalization and know that it’s all right. Additionally, if you see that they are troubled during a thunderstorm, you may remotely activate a light to make things less scary.

The leading dog-friendly home security system in Louisville is simple to operate

The many animal-friendly options are great, but they wouldn't mean a great deal if they were hard to operate. The good part about a smart home system like Vivint's is that the various controls are found in both your central hub interface and your mobile security app. So set your alarms around your family's lifestyle -- and that includes your pets! All it requires is a few button taps and you have your whole home security set up and ready to go.
