There's nothing more rewarding than having a dog in Ocala. However, many animals have been known to trigger a sensor on some home security systems. And it stands to reason that the larger your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they may be the source of a false alarm. So don’t you think it would be nice if you could find a dog-friendly alarm system in Ocala?

As a dog owner, you need to consider the many benefits that come with Vivint’s alarms and cameras. First of all, you are able to modify the sensors to ignore locations where your animals are most active. Next, utilize your indoor video cameras with HD night vision and motion sensing functionality to maintain a close watch of your furry housemates. Third, your dog-friendly alarm system needs to be simple to interact with so you can swiftly arm and disarm your property’s security as needed.

Adjust your sensors to allow for your pet

Current window, door, and motion sensors are more capable of adapting to pets than previous devices. Smaller animals aren’t likely to have any problem averting an accidental sensor trip, as the devices are capable of adjusting. Bigger dogs and rambunctious pets may have a greater chance of causing false alarms, but you may lessen that likelihood with a couple adjustments on the Vivint app.

  • Adjust the motion detection sensitivity to low. You are also able to alter the amount of area covered by the sensor.
  • Place motion detection devices away from frequented places, including the favorite napping spot or feeding area.
  • Turn off your alarms with your cell phone app before you pull in the driveway -- particularly if your furry friend likes to jump around the door or window when you're walking in.
  • Schedule smart lighting to activate to calm an anxious animal after the sun goes down.

Having the ability to handle these changes is why Vivint is the leading pet-friendly home security system in Ocala.

Use your indoor video cams to keep eyes on your dog

Indoor surveillance systems with 2-way talk are an excellent way for pet parents to soothe their furry friends while at work or vacation with your intuitive mobile app. Your surveillance systems will even give you a visual of your pet in in less than ideal lighting in full high definition, so you may observe what is transpiring in the common areas without even leaving your room. And if your cameras pick up unusual motion, you are able to have a smart clip delivered to your phone to see if it's your animal or a burglar.

In the event your dog suffers from anxiety, your Vivint video devices may help. Whenever you observe them beginning to act up, speak to them via the two-way audio feature. They will detect your voice and understand that all is fine. Additionally, if you find that they are stressed during inclement weather, you may remotely turn on a smart bulb to make the room less intimidating.

The best dog-friendly home security system in Ocala is simple to use

All of the dog-friendly options are fantastic, but they wouldn't help a great deal if they were a challenge to use. The gratifying aspect about a smart home plan like Vivint's is that all your features are included in both your central hub interface and your smartphone app. Feel free to arrange your equipment around your unique household -- and that includes your dogs! All it requires are a few touches of a button and you have your complete home security under control.
