Few things are as satisfying as having a dog in Joplin. However, some animals have been known to trip sensors on some home security systems. And it stands to reason that the larger your pooch is, the more likely they may be the source of a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Joplin?

Vivint's smart home systems have several features that are perfect for families with pets. To start with, you are able to adjust the sensors to exclude locations where pets usually wander about. Then, use your indoor security cameras with high-def night vision and motion detecting capacity to keep an eye on your pet. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be straightforward to interact with so you may quickly engage and disengage your property’s security as needed.

Adjust your sensors to account for your pet

Today's door, window, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than before. Smaller animals should have no trouble circumventing an inadvertent triggering of the sensor, as the system are capable of adjusting. Larger dogs and rowdy pets may have an enhanced likelihood of false alarms, but you are able to lessen that risk with a few modifications on the Vivint mobile app.

  • Adjust the motion detection sensitivity to low. You may even modify the amount of area covered by the sensor.
  • Position motion detection devices away from frequented places, such as the favorite napping spot or feeding area.
  • Turn off your alarms with your cell phone app when you’re on your way home -- particularly if your pet has a tendency to jump around the door or window when you're walking in.
  • Program a smart light to illuminate to relax an uneasy pet when it gets dark.

The ability to make these changes is why Vivint is the best pet-friendly home security system in Joplin.

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 pet parents to check on their furry friends while at work or vacation with your intuitive mobile app. Your surveillance devices even have the ability to provide a video feed of your pet in low-light situations in full high-def, so you can catch a glimpse of what’s going on throughout the house without even leaving your room. In the event your surveillance devices notice unexpected movements, you are able to have a video snippet dispatched to your phone to determine if it's your pet or a burglar.

Uneasiness and distressed behavior is commonplace for dogs and if that happens to be the case with your four-legged friend, Vivint cameras may be of assistance. Whenever you see them begin to become distressed, speak to them by using the camera's speaker. They should detect your speech and know that it’s all right. Additionally, if you discover that they are stressed during a thunderstorm, you may remotely activate a light to make the room less alarming.

The best dog-friendly home security system in Joplin is simple to manage

These dog-friendly options are great, but they wouldn't help all that much if they were a challenge to use. The gratifying aspect about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that all your controls are found in both your centralized control panel and your mobile security app. Go ahead and arrange your alarms around your unique household -- including the dogs! Then, all it takes is a few button taps and you have your complete system the way you want it.
