There's nothing better than owning a dog in Amarillo. Even so, some pets are inclined to trip a sensor on some home security systems. And it appears that the larger your dog is, the more likely they may be the source of a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be beneficial if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Amarillo?

A perfect fit for dog owners, Vivint smart homes provide a multitude of benefits. First of all, you are able to adjust the sensors to exclude spaces where pets usually wander about. Second, use your indoor video cameras with HD night vision and motion detecting capacity to maintain a close watch of your furry housemates. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be simple to control so you are able to quickly arm and disarm your home’s defense as required.

Program your sensors to account for dogs

Current motion, door, and window sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Small dogs or cats should have no problem avoiding an inadvertent tripping of the sensor, as the devices will adjust accordingly. Bigger dogs and exuberant animals may have an increased possibility of false alarms, but there are ways you can decrease that chance with a few adjustments on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Change the sensitivity of your motion detector to low. You may even alter the amount of area covered by the device.
  • Install detectors away from high-traffic spots, like the favorite napping spot or food bowl.
  • Turn off your alarms via your mobile security app before you pull in the driveway -- specifically if your furry friend is known to jump around secured doors or windows when you're walking in.
  • Program a smart light to turn on to soothe an uneasy pet at night.

The capability of handling these modifications makes Vivint the top pet-friendly home security system in Amarillo.

Utilize your indoor video cams to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor video cameras with two-way talk are a great way for owners to check on their four-legged companions while away from home with your intuitive cell phone app. Your indoor cameras will even provide a video feed of your pet in low-light situations in full high definition, so you may see what’s going on downstairs without even leaving your room. Whenever your surveillance devices pick up abnormal activity, you can have a short video segment sent to your mobile device to determine if it's your pet or a burglar.

If your furry friend suffers from anxiety, your Vivint surveillance systems can actually be beneficial to you. If you see them begin to act up, soothe them via the two-way audio feature. They will notice your voice and understand that all is fine. In addition, if you discover that they are nervous during a thunderstorm, you might remotely flip on a light to make the scene less alarming.

The leading dog-friendly home security system in Amarillo is a breeze to manage

The many pet-friendly controls are awesome, but they wouldn't help a great deal if they were hard to use. The good thing about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that the various features are included in both your central hub interface and your mobile security app. Feel free to arrange your devices around your way of life -- and that includes your pets! Then, all it takes is a few button taps and you have your entire system the way you want it.
