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.

Turn to your indoor surveillance to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor security cameras with two-way talk are a great means for owners to soothe their animals while at work or vacation via your helpful cell phone app. Your surveillance systems can even pick up your pet in low-light situations in full high-def, so you may catch a glimpse of what is transpiring throughout the house without even leaving your room. In the event your cameras notice unusual movements, you may have a smart clip dispatched to your mobile device to determine if it's your pet or a burglar.

If your loyal companion deals with anxiety, your Vivint surveillance systems may be helpful. If you see them begin to act up, speak to them by using the camera's speaker. They can notice your vocalization and realize that it's ok. Additionally, if you discover that they are troubled with the onset of inclement weather, you might remotely activate lighting to make the room less scary.

The best dog-friendly home security system in Grand Rapids is simple to manage

All of the pet-friendly options are fantastic, but they wouldn't benefit you a great deal if they were a challenge to manage. The nice aspect about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that the various features are found in both your centralized control panel and your cell phone app. Feel free to arrange your devices around your way of life -- including the furry companions! All that is needed are a few touches of a button and you have your whole home defense package the way you want it.
