Security systems can be adjusted to fit the needs of your family. That includes your furry family members too. Historically, security systems might not have been best for homes with cats or dags in them. Recently that has changed. Security systems have been adjusted and now offer a variety of options when it comes to figuring out what will work best for you and your family.
The biggest change that you’ll have to make is the elimination of the motion detector. The motion detector is activated when you are not home. If someone breaks in and there is movement within the home when there shouldn’t be, you’ll definitely have a problem if you have a large dog. Cats who are active and jump will also cause a problem. This situation can be easily resolved though. We suggest calling your security system company to help you plan the best way to do it though.
If you have a big dog, you’re probably out of luck in the motion detector department. Must most of the time, you can locate the motion detector in a specific location in such a way that any pets that reside in the home won’t activate it. This is a simple adjustment of the angle and location of the motion detectors.
Some people just feel that it’s less of a hassle and prefer to turn the motion detectors off completely. This works too. Even though it’s a defense for your home, there are a variety of other options that you can choose from for your home. Glass break sensors are a popular replacement for the motion sensors.
The other big thing that you’re going to want to include in your home is a wireless security system. Our favorites are FrontPoint Security, LifeShield, Protect America, Vivint and ADT. We picked these because they’re known for their wireless alarm systems. The last thing you want running along your walls in a wire for a new puppy on or a big dog to rip up. You’re much better off getting a wireless security system and keeping it out of reach of your new pets.
