Not much is more rewarding than having a dog in Wausau. However, quite a few furry friends have been known to trip sensors on different types of home security systems. And it stands to reason that the more substantial your dog is, the greater the chance they may be the reason for a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it helpful if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Wausau?

If you have a dog, you ought to think about the range of benefits found in Vivint’s smart home systems. First, you may rework the sensors to exclude locations where your animals typically roam. Second, make use of your indoor surveillance devices with high definition night vision and motion detection capacity to keep an eye on your furry housemates. Finally, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be easy to use so you can quickly activate and deactivate your property’s security as you need.

Adjust your sensors to account for pets

Today's window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than past options. Small dogs or cats aren’t likely to have any issue circumventing an inadvertent triggering of the sensor, as the system will adjust accordingly. Bigger dogs and rambunctious animals may have an increased possibility of false alarms, but you may lessen that risk with a couple changes on the Vivint smartphone app.

  • Adjust the motion detection sensitivity to low. You can also adjust the range of the sensor.
  • Place motion detection devices away from frequented places, such as your dog’s pet bed or feeding area.
  • Disengage your alarms via your smartphone app before you pull in the driveway -- particularly if your pet has a tendency to bound past your front door or nearby windows as you walk in.
  • Schedule a smart bulb to activate to soothe an uneasy animal at night.

The capability of handling these adjustments ranks Vivint as the top pet-friendly home security system in Wausau.

Turn to your indoor video cams to maintain a watch on your dog

Indoor security cameras with 2-way talk are a great method for homeowners to check on their furry friends while working or traveling via your helpful smartphone app. Your surveillance systems will even pick up your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high-def, so you’re able to see what they are doing in the common areas without even leaving your room. And if your video components notice unexpected motion, you may have a short video segment sent to your phone to see if it's your pet or a burglar.

Your Vivint cameras are also nice devices for dogs with anxiety. If you find them starting to act up, talk to them through the two-way audio feature. They will detect your voice and understand that it's ok. Additionally, if you discover that they are troubled in inclement weather, you can remotely turn on a smart bulb to make the scene less intimidating.
