Dogs and home security systems
I’m interested in a home security system, but I’ve heard that pets can accidentally set them off. If I get an alarm system, is my Lab mix going to be a problem?
Provided you purchase the right type of home security system, having a pet shouldn’t be a problem. High-tech security systems include pet-friendly motion detectors (also called “pet-immune”). These sensors can be programmed to ignore household pets but still detect an intruder. While shopping for a security system, make sure you purchase a motion detector with this feature.
