Will my pet set off my motion detector?

Equipment | General | Sensors

We love security, and we love pets – but there’s never a 100% guarantee that your pet will not accidentally trigger your alarm. But a pet-sensitive motion detector can help to lessen the chances of a false alarm.

Pet-sensitive motion detectors are designed to allow your pet to move around freely in your home while your motion detector is armed. These motion detectors have a blind spot to accommodate your animal walking in a room or even lounging on your couch. If the animal jumps or deviates outside of the pet blind spot, then the motion detector will trigger the alarm.

If you feel your pet motion detector needs to be adjusted or you want to discuss the option of adding a pet motion detector, give us a call at 1.800.PROTECT (1.800.776.8328).
