There's nothing more rewarding than sharing your home with a dog in El Paso. With that in mind, some animals have been known to trigger a sensor on various home security systems. And it seems that the more substantial your pooch is, the greater the chance they may cause a false alarm. So wouldn't it be beneficial if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in El Paso?

Vivint's smart home security system has several features ideal for families with pets. First of all, you are able to adjust the sensors to ignore spaces where your animals usually wander about. Second, utilize your indoor security cameras with high definition night vision and motion detection functionality to always have eyes on your pet. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system ought to be simple to control so you are able to quickly activate and deactivate your home’s defense as you need.

Program your sensors to avoid dogs

Current door, window, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than before. Cats and smaller dogs should have no trouble avoiding an unintentional tripping of the sensor, as the devices are capable of adjusting. More sizable dogs and exuberant animals will have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you may reduce that likelihood with some changes on the Vivint app.

  • Set the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You are also able to alter the amount of area covered by the sensor.
  • Install detectors away from high-traffic spots, like a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food bowl.
  • Disengage your alarms with your cell phone app when you’re getting close to the house -- particularly if your pet is known to jump around secured doors or windows as you walk in.
  • Set a smart bulb to illuminate to soothe an anxious pet at night.

Having the ability to handle these modifications ranks Vivint as the leading pet-friendly home security system in El Paso.

Use your indoor surveillance to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor video cameras with two-way talk are an easy method for owners to check on their furry friends while at work or vacation with your intuitive cell phone app. Your indoor cameras even have the ability to provide a video feed of your pet in low-light situations in full high-def, so you can observe what is transpiring throughout the house without even leaving your room. And if your surveillance devices pick up unusual movements, you can have a smart clip sent to your mobile device to determine if it's your animal or a burglar.

Anxious behavior is common among dogs and if this is the situation with your animal, Vivint surveillance devices can be of assistance. If you observe them beginning to act up, talk to them through the two-way audio feature. They should hear your vocalization and realize that all is fine. Additionally, if you discover that they are stressed in inclement weather, you may remotely turn on lighting to make the room less intimidating.

The best dog-friendly home security system in El Paso is simple to use

The many pet-friendly controls are awesome, but they wouldn't mean a great deal if they were a challenge to use. The good aspect about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that the many controls are included in both your centralized control panel and your cell phone app. So program your devices around your way of life -- and that includes your pets! Then, all it takes are some taps of your screen and you have your complete home defense package under control.
