Take Care With Pets

  • A family pet moving throughout the home may be large enough to activate a motion sensor. Special sensors are available to adapt to some pets.
  • Problems occur with new pets or as pets grow over time.
  • Talk to your alarm company about installing pet friendly devices or changing your system design to accommodate pets.
  • Often, upgrading your sensors can be less expensive than a fee or fine imposed by your municipality for a false alarm.
  • It is important to know that depending on the size of your pet, some of these sensors may not function as intended. Be sure to discuss the height and weight of your pet before purchasing these devices.
  • Check with your alarm company to determine if another option, such as cross zoning, will work for you.
  • In this case, your monitoring center will not dispatch on motion alarms unless they also receive a separate entry alarm.
