Your pet is a member of your family. However, there are times when you need to leave your cherished fur-baby at home while you go to work, run errands, or go on vacation, and it’s not feasible to take your pets along. As a precious family member, they deserve the same care and protection a total home security system provides you. Here are the top five things to look for when shopping for a system that can benefits you as well as your pets:
– Wireless. A wireless security system means there won’t be any wires or cords coming from system components that your pet can chew on. Biting through a live wire can give your pet quite a shock, and it can also burn the inside of their mouth.
– Motion. Some smart security systems have sophisticated motion sensors that can detect the difference between your pet moving around the house versus an intruder who has broken in. Other systems allow you to arm your security feature without engaging the motion sensors, so your pet won’t be tripping alarms all day long inside your home.
– Keyless. If you have a pet sitter come to your house while you’re away, you can provide them with their own code to use with your keyless entry feature on your door. This will keep a log of when the code was used, so you know exactly when the sitter came in and how long they stayed before they left. For one-time entry into your home, a smart door lock can work in conjunction with your exterior surveillance or smart doorbell to alert you when someone has arrived at your home. You can then remotely unlock the door for them and lock it back up when they leave.
– Cameras. Interior cameras provide you with the ability to monitor your pet throughout the day via live feeds through your smartphone or tablet.
– Monitoring. In addition to keeping an eye out for thieves, a 24/7 monitoring service can detect smoke, fire, or water damage in your home. They can then dispatch the appropriate authorities to your home to save your pet and secure your property.
