There's nothing more rewarding than sharing your home with a dog in Baltimore. Even so, some pets are inclined to trigger alarms on some home security systems. And it seems that the more substantial your pooch is, the greater the chance they may be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn't it be helpful if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Baltimore?

A perfect fit for families with dogs, Vivint home security systems provide a multitude of benefits. To start with, you are able to modify the sensors to disregard locations where your animals typically roam. Then, make use of your indoor video cameras with HD night vision and motion detecting functionality to maintain a close watch of your animals. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system should be easy to use so you can quickly activate and deactivate the system as needed.

Adjust your sensors to account for your pet

Current door, window, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Cats and smaller dogs should have no problem averting an inadvertent triggering of the sensor, as the devices can adapt to them. Larger dogs and rambunctious animals may have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but there are ways you can lessen that likelihood with some modifications on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Change the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You are also able to adjust the range of the motion detector.
  • Place motion detection devices away from heavily traveled areas, such as your dog’s pet bed or food bowl.
  • Disengage your alarms with your cell phone app when you’re on your way home -- particularly if your dog likes to bound past your front door or nearby windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Schedule smart lighting to activate to soothe an uneasy dog when it gets dark.

Having the ability to handle these adjustments makes Vivint the leading pet-friendly home security system in Baltimore.

Turn to your indoor security cameras to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with two-way talk are an excellent method for pet parents to soothe their four-legged companions while at work or vacation with your easy-to-use mobile app. Your indoor cameras can even give you a visual of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high-def, so you can see what is transpiring in the common areas without getting out of bed. Whenever your cameras pick up abnormal movements, you can have a video snippet sent to your mobile device to see if it's your dog or an intruder.

Your Vivint video components are also nice devices for dogs who scare easily. If you observe them beginning to act up, soothe them by using the camera's speaker. They should notice your voice and understand that it's ok. In addition, if you discover that they are stressed with the onset of a storm, you can remotely flip on lighting to make the room less intimidating.

All of the animal-friendly controls are fantastic, but they wouldn't help all that much if they were hard to use.
