Few things are more rewarding than owning a dog in Ventura. Even so, some furry friends have been known to trigger a sensor on different types of home security systems. And it appears that the larger your dog is, the more likely they might be the source of a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be nice if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Ventura?

Perfectly suited for families with dogs, Vivint alarms and cameras provide a range of benefits. First, you are able to rework the sensors to disregard spaces where your animals usually wander about. Second, make use of your indoor security cameras with high-def night vision and motion detection functionality to keep an eye on your animals. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system should be straightforward to use so you may quickly activate and deactivate your home’s defense as needed.

Adjust your sensors to allow for your pet

Modern motion, door, and window sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Small dogs or cats shouldn’t have any issue averting an accidental triggering of the sensor, as the devices will adjust accordingly. Larger dogs and exuberant animals will have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you may reduce that likelihood with a couple modifications on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Change the motion detection sensitivity to low. You are also able to alter the amount of area covered by the motion detector.
  • Install motion sensors away from high-traffic spots, like a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food bowl.
  • Disengage your alarms with your cell phone app before you pull in the driveway -- especially if your pet has a tendency to bound past your front door or nearby windows when you're walking in.
  • Program a smart bulb to activate to soothe an uneasy pet after the sun goes down.

Having the ability to handle these modifications is why Vivint is the best pet-friendly home security system in Ventura.

Use your indoor surveillance to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor video cameras with two-way talk are an easy way for pet parents to check on their animals while working or traveling with your intuitive cell phone app. Your surveillance systems will even give you a visual of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high-def, so you may catch a glimpse of what’s going on throughout the house without even leaving your room. Whenever your surveillance devices pick up unusual activity, you are able to have a smart clip delivered to your mobile device to see if it's your animal or an intruder.

Your Vivint cameras are also nice tools for dogs with behavioral concerns. When you observe them beginning to act up, talk to them through the camera's speaker. They should notice your vocalization and understand that all is fine. Or, if you discover that they are nervous during a storm, you might remotely flip on lighting to make things less scary.

The best dog-friendly home security system in Ventura is a breeze to manage

The many pet-friendly controls are great, but they wouldn't mean a great deal if they were a challenge to operate. The gratifying thing about a smart home package like Vivint's is that the many tools are both on your centralized control panel and your smartphone app. Feel free to arrange your alarms around your family's lifestyle -- and don’t forget your dogs! All that is needed are some taps of your screen and you have your complete home security the way you want it.
