There's nothing better than sharing your home with a dog in Mansfield. With that in mind, some pets have been known to trip a sensor on different types of home security systems. And it seems that the more substantial your pooch is, the greater the likelihood they might be the source of a false alarm. So wouldn't it be nice if there was a dog-friendly alarm system in Mansfield?

Adjust your sensors to avoid dogs
Today's door, window, and motion sensors are more accommodating to pets than before. Smaller animals shouldn’t have any trouble avoiding an unintentional triggering of the sensor, as the system can adapt to them. Bigger dogs and rambunctious animals may have an increased possibility of false alarms, but there are ways you can reduce that likelihood with a couple modifications on the Vivint smartphone app.
- Set the motion detection sensitivity to low. You may even adjust the amount of area covered by the sensor.
- Position motion detection devices away from high-traffic spots, such as the favorite napping spot or food bowl.
- Disengage your alarms via your smartphone app before you pull in the driveway -- specifically if your furry friend likes to leap toward secured doors or windows when you're walking in.
- Set a smart bulb to activate to relax an uneasy dog when it gets dark.
The ability to make these modifications is why Vivint is the leading pet-friendly home security system in Mansfield.
