Few things are as satisfying as owning a dog in Evanston. With that in mind, quite a few pets are inclined to trip sensors on various home security systems. And it seems that the more substantial your pooch is, the greater the chance they might cause a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be beneficial if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Evanston?

A perfect fit for families with dogs, Vivint alarms and cameras offer a range of benefits. To start with, you may rework the sensors to ignore areas where your four-legged friends are most active. Then, utilize your indoor surveillance devices with high definition night vision and motion sensing capacity to maintain a close watch of your pet. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system ought to be straightforward to control so you may rapidly arm and disarm the system as required.

Adjust your sensors to allow for dogs

Current window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than past options. Small dogs or cats should have no problem circumventing an inadvertent sensor trip, as the system will adjust accordingly. Bigger dogs and rowdy animals may have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but you may decrease that chance with a couple changes on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Change the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You may even alter the range of the motion detector.
  • Place motion sensors away from high-traffic spots, such as a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food dish.
  • Disengage your alarms via your mobile security app when you’re on your way home -- particularly if your dog likes to jump around secured doors or windows when you're walking in.
  • Program smart lighting to turn on to soothe an anxious pet when it gets dark.

Having the ability to handle these changes is why Vivint is the best pet-friendly home security system in Evanston.

Utilize your indoor security cameras to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor video cameras with 2-way talk are an easy method for pet parents to soothe their animals while at work or vacation through your easy-to-use cell phone app. Your surveillance devices will even provide a video feed of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high definition, so you’re able to catch a glimpse of what they are doing throughout the house without even leaving your room. In the event your video components detect abnormal movements, you may have a short video segment delivered to your mobile device to determine if it's your dog or a burglar.

Anxiety is fairly normal for dogs and if that’s the case with yours, Vivint video equipment may be of assistance. When you see them begin to get uneasy, talk to them via the two-way audio feature. They can hear your vocalization and understand that all is fine. Or, if you discover that they are stressed in a thunderstorm, you can remotely flip on lighting to make things less alarming.
