Not much is better than having a dog in Nashville. However, many pets have been known to set off sensors on some home security systems. And it seems that the more substantial your pooch is, the greater the chance they may be the source of a false alarm. So wouldn’t you find it nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Nashville?

A perfect fit for families with dogs, Vivint smart homes offer an array of benefits. To start with, you may modify the sensors to disregard locations where pets are most active. Then, utilize your indoor surveillance devices with high definition night vision and motion detecting capabilities to always have eyes on your furry housemates. Lastly, your dog-friendly alarm system should be simple to interact with so you may quickly arm and disarm your home’s defense as you need.

Adjust your sensors to avoid pets

Today's door, window, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than before. Smaller animals aren’t likely to have any trouble averting an inadvertent sensor trip, as the equipment will adjust accordingly. More sizable dogs and exuberant animals will have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but there are ways you can lessen that likelihood with a few adjustments on the Vivint app.

  • Change the motion detection sensitivity to low. You are also able to adjust the size of the perimeter of the motion detector.
  • Place motion sensors away from heavily traveled areas, including your dog’s pet bed or feeding area.
  • Disengage your alarms via your cell phone app when you’re getting close to the house -- especially if your furry friend is known to jump around your front door or nearby windows when you walk up the front steps.
  • Program a smart bulb to activate to calm an uneasy animal after the sun goes down.

The ability to make these modifications makes Vivint the top pet-friendly home security system in Nashville.

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

Indoor video cameras with two-way talk are an excellent way for pet parents to soothe their furry friends while away from home through your easy-to-use mobile app. Your surveillance devices even have the ability to give you a visual of your pet in lower levels of light in full high definition, so you can catch a glimpse of what they are doing throughout the house without leaving the bed. And if your cameras detect abnormal movements, 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 fantastic tools for dogs with behavioral concerns. When you find them starting to become distressed, speak to them by using the two-way audio feature. They will hear your voice and know that it’s all right. Or, if you find that they are nervous with the onset of a thunderstorm, you might remotely turn on lighting to make things less intimidating.

The leading dog-friendly home security system in Nashville is a breeze to manage

The many dog-friendly features are great, but they wouldn't mean much if they were difficult to operate. The gratifying aspect about a smart home system like Vivint's is that the many features are found in both your smart hub and your smartphone app. So arrange your equipment around your unique household -- and that includes your furry companions! All that is needed are some taps of your screen and you have your whole home defense package set up and ready to go.
