There's nothing as satisfying as having a dog in Youngstown. With that in mind, some pets have been known to trip sensors on various home security systems. And it appears that the larger your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they might cause a false alarm. So wouldn't it be nice if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Youngstown?

As a dog owner, you will want to take into consideration the many benefits that come with Vivint’s alarms and cameras. First of all, you are able to adjust the sensors to ignore areas where your animals usually wander about. Then, make use of your indoor security cameras with high definition night vision and motion sensing functionality to always have eyes on your animals. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be easy to interact with so you are able to rapidly arm and disarm the system as needed.

Program your sensors to account for dogs

Today's window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Small dogs or cats aren’t likely to have any trouble averting an inadvertent tripping of the sensor, as the devices are capable of adjusting. More sizable dogs and exuberant pets may have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you may reduce that chance with a couple changes on the Vivint app.

  • Set the sensitivity levels of your motion detectors to low. You may even adjust the size of the perimeter of the motion detector.
  • Position motion sensors away from heavily traveled areas, such as the favorite napping spot or food dish.
  • Turn off your alarms with your smartphone app before you pull in the driveway -- specifically if your furry friend has a tendency to bound past the door or window when you're walking in.
  • Set a smart light to activate to soothe an uneasy dog when it gets dark.

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

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

Indoor surveillance systems with two-way talk are an easy means for pet parents to soothe their animals while working or traveling through your easy-to-use cell phone app. Your surveillance devices even have the ability to provide a video feed of your pet in low-light situations in full high definition, so you’re able to see what they are doing throughout the house without leaving the bed. In the event your cameras detect unexpected movements, you may have a video snippet sent to your phone to determine if it's your pet or an intruder.

Anxious behavior is fairly normal for dogs and if that happens to be the case with your four-legged friend, Vivint video equipment can be advantageous for you. When you find them starting to get uneasy, speak to them by using the two-way audio feature. They can notice your speech and realize that it's ok. Additionally, if you find that they are stressed during a storm, you might remotely turn on a light to make the room less intimidating.

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