Few things are better than owning a dog in San Bernardino. However, some pets can trigger a sensor on different types of home security systems. And it stands to reason that the bigger your dog is, the greater the chance they might be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn't it be helpful if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in San Bernardino?

Vivint's smart home systems have several tools ideal for pet owners. First, you are able to adjust the sensors to exclude areas where your four-legged friends usually wander about. Second, utilize your indoor security cameras with HD night vision and motion detection functionality to keep an eye on your animals. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system should be straightforward to interact with so you are able to quickly engage and disengage the system as needed.

Set your sensors to allow for pets

Modern motion, door, and window sensors are more accommodating to pets than past options. Smaller animals aren’t likely to have any issue averting an accidental tripping of the sensor, as the system can adapt to them. More sizable dogs and rambunctious animals may have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but you may lessen that likelihood with a few changes on the Vivint app.

  • Adjust the motion detection sensitivity to low. You can also alter the range of the sensor.
  • Place motion detection devices away from heavily traveled areas, including a pet’s preferred sleeping place or feeding area.
  • Disengage your alarms via your smartphone app when you’re getting close to the house -- specifically if your dog is known to jump around your front door or nearby windows when you're walking in.
  • Set a smart light to turn on to calm an uptight dog after the sun goes down.

The capability of handling these changes makes Vivint the leading pet-friendly home security system in San Bernardino.

Utilize your indoor video cams to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor security cameras with two-way talk are an easy way for pet parents to soothe their animals while working or traveling with your easy-to-use smartphone app. Your indoor cameras will even provide a video feed of your pet in lower levels of light in full high-def, so you can catch a glimpse of what they are doing in the common areas without leaving the bed. And if your cameras detect unexpected motion, you may have a video snippet dispatched to your mobile device to ascertain if it's your pet or a burglar.

When your loyal companion suffers from anxiety, your Vivint video devices can actually be helpful. Whenever you find them starting to act up, talk to them by using the camera's speaker. They can detect your voice and understand that it’s all right. Or, if you see that they are troubled in inclement weather, you may remotely activate a smart bulb to make things less intimidating.

The most dog-friendly home security system in San Bernardino is a breeze to use

These pet-friendly options are great, but they wouldn't benefit you much if they were difficult to manage. The gratifying part about a smart home package like Vivint's is that all your controls are included in both your smart hub and your smartphone app. Go ahead and set your alarms around your family's lifestyle -- and that includes your pets! Then, all it takes are a few touches of a button and you have your complete home defense package under control.
