Few things are as satisfying as sharing your home with a dog in Lawrence. With that in mind, some furry friends have been known to trigger alarms on different types of home security systems. And it appears that the larger your dog is, the more likely they may cause a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be beneficial if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Lawrence?

If you have a dog, you need to take into consideration the range of benefits found in Vivint’s alarms and cameras. To start with, you may rework the sensors to disregard spaces where your animals typically roam. Second, utilize your indoor security cameras with HD night vision and motion detecting capabilities to always have eyes on your pet. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be easy to control so you can swiftly engage and disengage your property’s security as required.

Adjust your sensors to allow for your pet

Modern door, window, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Small dogs or cats aren’t likely to have any issue averting an accidental sensor trip, as the devices can adapt to them. Larger dogs and rowdy animals might have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but you are able to reduce that likelihood with a few changes on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Adjust the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You may even adjust the amount of area covered by the motion detector.
  • Position motion sensors away from high-traffic spots, including a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food bowl.
  • Turn off your alarms via your smartphone app before you pull in the driveway -- particularly if your furry friend has a tendency to bound past your front door or nearby windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Set a smart bulb to illuminate to calm an uptight animal at night.

The ability to make these changes ranks Vivint as the best pet-friendly home security system in Lawrence.

Utilize your indoor surveillance to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor security cameras with two-way talk are an easy means for pet parents to check on their furry friends while at work or vacation with your helpful mobile app. Your indoor cameras can even provide a video feed of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high definition, so you may observe what they are doing throughout the house without leaving the bed. Whenever your video components pick up abnormal movements, you are able to have a short video segment delivered to your cell phone to determine if it's your animal or an intruder.

If your furry friend suffers from anxiety, your Vivint cameras could be helpful. Whenever you find them starting to become distressed, speak to them through the camera's speaker. They can hear your voice and understand that it’s all right. Additionally, if you see that they are troubled with the onset of a storm, you may remotely flip on a light to make the scene less intimidating.
