Pet Security: Keeping Pets Safe with Monitored Burglar and Smoke Alarm Systems

pet security tipsWhen people think of alarm systems and home security, they usually think about protecting their property and their families. For many people, family also means pet security. The good news is that the same tools that keep your human family safe can also protect your four-legged friends.

Criminals can raid a house in seconds, stealing large amounts of valuables and damaging your property. They can also put your pets at risk. This is why pet security is important. In order to protect your pets and keep them safe, you’ll want to have a monitored alarm system installed. These systems are connected to a central monitoring station that can notify you right away and send emergency assistance immediately. All of which will help keep your pets safe and secure.

Older or less sophisticated alarm systems often have motion detectors that can be activated by pets. This leads to false alarms and systems that are rendered ineffective. Not only do modern alarm systems have pet immunity devices that compensate for the movement of pets, often a modern smart alarm system will have integrated cameras that can let you or a central station operator view live footage of your property as soon as a trouble condition may arise. This means that the central station staff can quickly use this footage to determine if a crime is actually taking place or if your dog just knocked over a lamp.

In short, smart surveillance tools provide additional peace of mind to home owners with pets and improved pet security.

Monitored Fire Protection & Pet Security

When it comes to protecting pets from fire, it’s very important that you remember that pets can’t respond to audible alarms. They may see the fire and they may hear the alarm, but there’s nothing they can do about it. Pets are trapped in the house and this is why having a monitored fire alarm is so important. It is crucial for pet security.

A fire can spread in minutes, turning a small and controllable situation into a large and potentially deadly one very quickly. A monitored fire alarm system is watched over by trained staff at the central station at all times. If a fire, smoke or high level of carbon monoxide is detected by your system, the central station will react right away and contact the home owner and send the appropriate authorities to handle the emergency. This could save your pet’s life.
