Few things are better than having a dog in Palm Springs. However, some animals are inclined to set off a sensor on different types of home security systems. And it seems that the bigger your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they might cause a false alarm. So wouldn't it be beneficial if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Palm Springs?

Vivint's smart home security system has built-in features that make sense for pet-loving families. First of all, you may adjust the sensors to disregard areas where your animals are most active. Second, utilize your indoor video cameras with HD night vision and motion detection capabilities to keep an eye on your furry housemates. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system should be simple to control so you are able to quickly engage and disengage your home’s defense as you need.

Program your sensors to account for your pet

Today's motion, door, and window sensors are more accommodating to pets than past options. Small dogs or cats shouldn’t have any problem circumventing an unintentional sensor trip, as the system can adapt to them. More sizable dogs and rowdy animals might have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you are able to lessen that risk with a couple adjustments on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Adjust the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You can also adjust the range of the motion detector.
  • Place detectors away from frequented places, such as your dog’s pet bed or food dish.
  • Deactivate your alarms with your cell phone app before you pull in the driveway -- specifically if your dog is known to jump around the door or window as you walk in.
  • Set a smart light to turn on to soothe an uneasy animal at night.

The ability to make these modifications ranks Vivint as the best pet-friendly home security system in Palm Springs.

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

Indoor surveillance systems with 2-way talk are an excellent method for pet parents to check on their animals while at work or vacation with your easy-to-use mobile app. Your indoor cameras even have the ability to give you a visual of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high definition, so you may observe what is transpiring in the common areas without even leaving your room. In the event your video components detect unexpected motion, you may have a short video segment sent to your mobile device to see if it's your animal or a burglar.

In the event your loyal companion suffers from anxiety, your Vivint cameras may be helpful. If you see them begin to get uneasy, speak to them via the camera's speaker. They can detect your speech and realize that it's ok. In addition, if you find that they are stressed in inclement weather, you may remotely turn on a smart bulb to make things less alarming.

The leading dog-friendly home security system in Palm Springs is easy to manage

These animal-friendly features are fantastic, but they wouldn't benefit you much if they were difficult to operate. The nice thing about a smart home system like Vivint's is that all your controls are both on your central hub interface and your smartphone app. Go ahead and set your devices around your way of life -- and don’t forget your furry companions! All it requires is a few button taps and you have your whole system the way you want it.
