There's nothing more rewarding than owning a dog in Scottsdale. Even so, many furry friends can trigger alarms on different types of home security systems. And it seems that the larger your pooch is, the greater the chance they could be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn't it be beneficial if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Scottsdale?

If you share your home with a dog, you need to think about the range of benefits included in Vivint’s alarms and cameras. First, you may rework the sensors to ignore spaces where your animals are most active. Then, make use of your indoor video cameras with high definition night vision and motion sensing capabilities to always have eyes on your furry housemates. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be easy to control so you are able to swiftly arm and disarm the system as needed.

Set your sensors to avoid dogs

Modern window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than previous devices. Cats and smaller dogs should have no trouble avoiding an inadvertent tripping of the sensor, as the equipment are capable of adjusting. Bigger dogs and rowdy animals might have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you are able to lessen that chance with some changes on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Set the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You can also modify the range of the device.
  • Place detectors away from frequented places, such as your dog’s pet bed or food bowl.
  • Deactivate your alarms via your mobile security app when you’re on your way home -- particularly if your dog likes to jump around your front door or nearby windows as you walk in.
  • Set smart lighting to turn on to soothe an anxious animal after the sun goes down.

The ability to make these adjustments is why Vivint is the best pet-friendly home security system in Scottsdale.

Turn to your indoor security cameras to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor security cameras with two-way talk are an easy way for homeowners to soothe their furry friends while away from home via your intuitive cell phone app. Your indoor cameras can even pick up your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full HD, so you can catch a glimpse of what is transpiring in the common areas without getting out of bed. And if your surveillance devices detect unusual movements, you may have a short video segment sent to your phone to ascertain if it's your dog or an intruder.

Uneasiness and distressed behavior is commonplace for dogs and if that happens to be the case with your animal, Vivint video equipment can be of assistance. When you see them begin to become distressed, speak to them by using the camera's speaker. They should notice your voice and realize that all is fine. Or, if you see that they are stressed with the onset of a storm, you can remotely flip on lighting to make things less intimidating.

The best dog-friendly home security system in Scottsdale is a breeze to manage

All of the dog-friendly controls are great, but they wouldn't help a great deal if they were difficult to manage. The gratifying thing about a smart home package like Vivint's is that the many controls are both on your smart hub and your smartphone app. Go ahead and program your devices around your unique household -- and that includes your furry companions! All that is needed are some taps of your screen and you have your entire home security the way you want it.
