Pets and the Burglar Alarm: Ways to Integrate Them

Alarm systems are designed to help protect every member of your family, and that includes the ones with fur on their backs. That’s right, we’re talking about your family pets. Understandably, some homeowners are concerned about integrating a security system with their beloved family dogs. With that in mind, here are ways you can do it easily and conveniently.   

Use your smart locks for walk time.

Busy homeowners don’t always have time for the things they really want to do, like walking their best friends on four legs. If that’s you, maybe you’ve decided to hire a neighbor or professional dog walker. No matter who you decide to employ, you need a safe way to let them in the house that only takes seconds – something you can do with your phone without leaving work or your other responsibilities. That’s where the smart locks on your home security system come in.

When you receive the smartphone alert that your dog walker is waiting, simply tap on the app to unlock the door so they can enter the house and greet your pet. When the two of them walk out, you can lock up again until they return. One last time, unlock it again when they return so your pet can be let back in the house. When the walker leaves, lock back up and get back to work. Job well done!

Set Boundaries around the Home

Your pet keeps watch over the yard and home, and so do your home security cameras. Working together, they can establish a clear barrier around the home. And if a break-in ever takes place, your dog can get in attack mode while your burglar alarm sounds and the central station is called. Very quickly, help will be on its way. This is a great way to allow your pet to partner up with your alarm, so there will be multiple layers of home security.
