The steadfast companionship and happiness a dog bestows upon your home in Binghamton undeniably makes them a part of your family. With that in mind, many animals have been known to trip sensors on some home security systems. And it seems that the larger your dog is, the greater the chance they may be the source of a false alarm. So wouldn't it be beneficial if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Binghamton?

As a dog owner, you need to think about the various benefits included in Vivint’s smart home systems. First of all, you can rework the sensors to disregard spaces where your animals usually wander about. Second, utilize your indoor security cameras with HD night vision and motion detection functionality to maintain a close watch of your animals. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be easy to interact with so you are able to quickly engage and disengage your home’s defense as required.

Set your sensors to avoid your pet

Current window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than past options. Smaller animals aren’t likely to have any issue avoiding an inadvertent sensor trip, as the equipment will adjust accordingly. More sizable dogs and rambunctious animals will have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but you are able to lessen that risk with a couple adjustments on the Vivint app.

  • Adjust the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You can also adjust the range of the device.
  • Install motion sensors away from high-traffic spots, including your dog’s pet bed or food dish.
  • Turn off your alarms with your cell phone app before you pull in the driveway -- especially if your dog likes to bound past secured doors or windows when you're walking in.
  • Schedule a smart light to illuminate to relax an anxious dog at night.

Having the ability to handle these changes ranks Vivint as the leading pet-friendly home security system in Binghamton.

Turn to your indoor surveillance to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor video cameras with 2-way talk are an easy means for homeowners to soothe their furry friends while away from home via your easy-to-use mobile app. Your surveillance devices even have the ability to give you a visual of your pet in lower levels of light in full high-def, so you’re able to see what they are doing downstairs without even leaving your room. In the event your cameras pick up unusual activity, you are able to have a smart clip dispatched to your mobile device to see if it's your dog or an intruder.

Your Vivint video components are also great tools for dogs with behavioral concerns. If you find them starting to act up, speak to them via the camera's speaker. They will notice your speech and realize that it’s all right. Or, if you discover that they are stressed with the onset of inclement weather, you can remotely flip on a light to make the scene less alarming.

The leading dog-friendly home security system in Binghamton is simple to manage

The many dog-friendly controls are awesome, but they wouldn't benefit you a great deal if they were hard to manage. The nice part about a smart home package like Vivint's is that the various tools are included in both your smart hub and your cell phone app. Feel free to arrange your devices around your unique household -- and don’t forget your dogs! All that is needed are some taps of your screen and you have your complete home defense package set up and ready to go.
