Not much is as satisfying as sharing your home with a dog in Buffalo. With that in mind, some animals can trigger sensors on various home security systems. And it stands to reason that the bigger your dog is, the more likely they could be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it beneficial if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Buffalo?

Ideal for people with dogs, Vivint smart homes offer a range of benefits. First, you may modify the sensors to disregard spaces where pets are most active. Next, make use of your indoor surveillance devices with high definition night vision and motion detecting functionality to always have eyes on your animals. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system ought to be easy to interact with so you may quickly activate and deactivate your home’s defense as you need.

Program your sensors to allow for pets

Current window, door, and motion sensors are much more pet-friendly than past options. Small dogs or cats shouldn’t have any issue avoiding an unintentional triggering of the sensor, as the equipment will adjust accordingly. More sizable dogs and exuberant animals may have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but there are ways you can decrease that risk with a couple modifications on the Vivint app.

  • Install motion sensors away from frequented places, including a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food bowl.

  • Program a smart light to illuminate to soothe an anxious animal at night.
