There's nothing as satisfying as sharing your home with a dog in Bakersfield. With that in mind, some pets are inclined to trigger alarms on different types of home security systems. And it appears that the larger your dog is, the more likely they may be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it helpful if you had access to a dog-friendly alarm system in Bakersfield?

If you share your home with a dog, you will want to consider the range of benefits included in Vivint’s home security systems. First, you may modify the sensors to exclude spaces where your four-legged friends typically roam. Next, use your indoor surveillance devices with HD night vision and motion sensing capacity to maintain a close watch of your pet. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system should be easy to use so you can rapidly arm and disarm the system as needed.

Adjust your sensors to avoid your pet

Current window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Small dogs or cats should have no issue circumventing an accidental sensor trip, as the system are capable of adjusting. More sizable dogs and exuberant animals will have an increased possibility of false alarms, but there are ways you can reduce that risk with a few modifications on the Vivint app.

  • Change the motion detection sensitivity to low. You can also modify the size of the perimeter of the sensor.
  • Place detectors away from frequented places, such as a pet’s preferred sleeping place or food bowl.
  • Deactivate your alarms with your cell phone app when you’re getting close to the house -- specifically if your pet is known to jump around your front door or nearby windows as you walk in.
  • Schedule smart lighting to turn on to calm an uptight pet when it gets dark.

Having the ability to handle these modifications ranks Vivint as the top pet-friendly home security system in Bakersfield.

Use your indoor video cams to see what’s going on with your dog

Indoor security cameras with 2-way talk are a great way for owners to check on their animals while away from home with your easy-to-use cell phone app. Your surveillance devices can even pick up your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high definition, so you may observe what they are doing throughout the house without even leaving your room. In the event your surveillance devices notice unusual motion, you are able to have a video snippet delivered to your phone to determine if it's your animal or an intruder.

Uneasiness and distressed behavior is commonplace for dogs and if this is the situation with yours, Vivint cameras can be advantageous for you. Whenever you see them begin to act up, talk to them via the camera's speaker. They can notice your vocalization and know that it’s all right. Or, if you see that they are stressed in a storm, you can remotely turn on a light to make the room less intimidating.

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

These animal-friendly options are great, but they wouldn't mean much if they were hard to operate. The gratifying thing about a smart home system like Vivint's is that all your controls are included in both your central hub interface and your smartphone app. Feel free to set your alarms around your unique household -- and that includes your furry companions! All it requires is a few button taps and you have your complete system the way you want it.
