Not much is as satisfying as having a dog in Grand Rapids. Even so, many pets are inclined to trip a sensor on different types of home security systems. And it stands to reason that the larger your dog is, the greater the chance they may cause a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it nice if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Grand Rapids?
Vivint's home security alarms have several options that are perfect for pet-loving families. First, you are able to adjust the sensors to disregard areas where your animals typically roam. Second, utilize your indoor video cameras with high definition night vision and motion detection functionality to keep an eye on your furry housemates. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be simple to interact with so you are able to rapidly activate and deactivate the system as needed.
Adjust your sensors to account for pets
Today's door, window, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than previous devices. Smaller animals should have no issue averting an unintentional triggering of the sensor, as the system can adapt to them. Bigger dogs and exuberant pets may have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but you are able to reduce that chance with some changes on the Vivint smartphone app.
- Change the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You are also able to modify the amount of area covered by the sensor.
- Install motion sensors away from high-traffic spots, including the favorite napping spot or feeding area.
- Turn off your alarms with your smartphone app when you’re getting close to the house -- specifically if your dog has a tendency to jump around secured doors or windows when you're walking in.
- Program a smart bulb to illuminate to relax an anxious dog when it gets dark.
The ability to make these modifications is why Vivint is the best pet-friendly home security system in Grand Rapids.
