The steadfast companionship and joy a dog bestows upon your house in Myrtle Beach really makes them a part of your family. However, quite a few furry friends can trigger a sensor on different types of home security systems. And it appears that the larger your dog is, the greater the likelihood they might cause a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be beneficial if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Myrtle Beach?

Vivint's home security alarms have several tools ideal for families with pets. First of all, you may adjust the sensors to disregard areas where your four-legged friends typically roam. Then, make use of your indoor surveillance devices with HD night vision and motion detection capacity to maintain a close watch of your furry housemates. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be straightforward to control so you may quickly engage and disengage the system as required.

Program your sensors to avoid pets

Today's window, door, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than before. Smaller animals shouldn’t have any issue averting an unintentional triggering of the sensor, as the equipment can adapt to them. Bigger dogs and rambunctious animals might have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you may lessen that likelihood with a couple modifications on the Vivint app.

  • Adjust the motion detection sensitivity to low. You may even alter the range of the motion detector.
  • Install detectors away from high-traffic spots, such as a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food dish.
  • Turn off your alarms with your cell phone app before you pull in the driveway -- particularly if your furry friend has a tendency to bound past your front door or nearby windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Schedule smart lighting to activate to calm an uneasy animal when it gets dark.

The ability to make these adjustments makes Vivint the leading pet-friendly home security system in Myrtle Beach.

Utilize your indoor video cams to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with two-way talk are a great method for owners to check on their four-legged companions while away from home via your helpful mobile app. Your surveillance systems can even provide a video feed of your pet in lower levels of light in full high definition, so you’re able to observe what they are doing throughout the house without even leaving your room. Whenever your cameras detect abnormal activity, you are able to have a video snippet delivered to your phone to ascertain if it's your dog or an intruder.

Anxiety is common among dogs and if that’s the case with yours, Vivint surveillance devices can be beneficial to you. If you observe them beginning to get uneasy, speak to them by using the camera's speaker. They should notice your speech and know that it’s all right. Or, if you discover that they are nervous with the onset of inclement weather, you can remotely activate a smart bulb to make the room less alarming.

The best dog-friendly home security system in Myrtle Beach is easy to manage

These pet-friendly controls are fantastic, but they wouldn't help much if they were a challenge to manage. The nice aspect about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that the many controls are found in both your centralized control panel and your mobile security app. So program your devices around your family's lifestyle -- and don’t forget your furry companions! All it requires are some taps of your screen and you have your whole system the way you want it.
