Best Home Security Systems for Pet Safety

dogs and cats

Many homeowners find peace of mind knowing that their homes, valuables, and loved ones are safe with home security, video surveillance, and fire protection. Even though they aren’t actually human, pets often feel like a member of the family, and we like to treat them as such. That’s why Coggin keeps your pets in mind when designing, customizing, and installing our security solutions into your home. If you are deciding whether an alarm system is right for you and your pet, make sure to keep these considerations in mind:

What To Look For In A Pet-Friendly Security System

A common problem many people experience with their home security systems is having their motion detectors pick up on their pets, causing them to be bombarded with notifications and false alarms. This becomes an even bigger problem with monitored systems, as police responding to too many false alarms can cause you to lose your emergency response privileges and even be charged a penalty.

If you have done previous research on home alarm systems for your cat or dog, you have likely already heard of pet-friendly or pet-immune motion sensors. These are critical to a pet-friendly system, as they are able to measure the mass of moving objects, differentiating between humans and animals. Coggin Security offers an inclusive range of products and solutions, only from proven providers of state-of-the-art alarm systems.

Our Featured Honeywell Home Products

S335 Wired PIR Motion Detector

The Honeywell Home IS335 Motion Detector is ideal for all residential security applications, delivering exceptional value and performance while reducing the number of false alarms. We recommend it for pet-friendly homes, as it features selectable pet immunity for pets weighing up to 80 lbs, a 40 x 56 range, and a style that will blend with your home decor.

IS3035 PIR Motion Detector

This high-performance, small form factor motion detector is a great addition to any
home. It provides cutting edge motion detection, with a wide range of models available for a variety of applications. The Honeywell Home family of IS3000 and DT8000 motion detectors maximize intruder detection and reduce false alarms. At Coggin Security, we like it because it allows pet immunity to be turned on or off at the flip of a DIP switch. When immunity is enabled, the sensor can distinguish between humans and pets up to 100 lbs.

DT8050 DUAL TEC Motion Detector

The DUAL TEC DT8035 and DT8050 Honeywell Home family achieves optimal
performance with extended range Fresnel optics, look down, and cover and wall tamper. We recommend it to pet owners, as it provides immunity to pets up to 100 lbs at the flip of a DIP switch.

Over 56% of pet owners want to be able to keep an eye on their pets when they’re away from home. Wireless security cameras allow you to do so, doubling as a pet camera when aimed at a crate or room where your pet lounges while you are away. Our HD home security cameras can also provide an easy way to verify an alert before asking the home monitoring services center to send an emergency response. Coggin’s home security system monitors your home and alerts you in the event of an emergency, such as a fire. When you are away from home, we ensure that the authorities can respond with enough time to get your pet out safely.

Our home security system is easily integrated into your home and enables the latest home automation features. These go beyond the normal function of Smart Home solutions and allow you to make sure your pets are comfortable while you are out of the house. With a home automation system, you can set up a smart thermostat to hold a comfortable and safe temperature for your furry friend through Connected Home devices. Some pets also experience separation anxiety while their humans are away, or if it’s dark or too quiet. You can use your home automation system to schedule your TV, radio, or lights to turn on and off after specified intervals.

Coggin’s systems are easily accessible and mobile-friendly, with a quick download of the Total Connect App on your device. Remote control access allows you to arm or disarm your security system, lock or unlock doors, adjust thermostat settings, and control lights and thermostat temperatures. The system can be tailored to your home with automated actions, such as an exit or nighttime routine that adjusts the temperature and locks the doors. With the Total Connect App, you can receive alerts if your heating and cooling system fails, water leaks occur, or doors open. The system also has a geofencing feature that reminds you to set your alarm when you are out of boundaries so that you can always remember to keep your pet safe!
