Protecting Your Pets

If you, like more than 60% of Americans, own a pet, than you personally know about the benefits of animal companionship.1 In addition to the fun and friendship that pets provide, pets can also help keep you healthy.

Studies have shown that people with pets live longer, are less stressed, and have fewer health problems.2 The many benefits of owning a pet include lower blood pressure, additional exercise, and improved psychological health.1 An American Stroke Association study found that living with a cat lowered the risk of heart attack by one third. Studies conducted by the American Health Association and Centers for Disease Control indicate that pets can decrease blood pressure, cholesterol, and feelings of loneliness. Walking a dog or taking care of a pet provides exercise and companionship for the elderly.3

Research has shown that compared to people who don't own pets, pet owners have better overall psychological well-being, and that owning a pet enhances childrens' self-esteem, cognitive development, and nurturing behavior.4

Dogs provide excellent home security and will risk their lives to protect their loved ones. An American Kennel Club (AKC) study indicated that 88% of pet owners consider their dogs or cats to be a valued family member. For everything pets do for us, it makes sense to do everything we can to make sure they are safe at all times. Along with the basic needs of food, water, and shelter, pet owners also need to remember to consider their pets' needs in emergency situations.

Your Pet and Your Home Security System

Your Pet and Your Home Security System

You think about protecting your property and your valuables, so why not protect the animals you love? Sievers' security packages offer many features perfect for pet owners.

All Sievers' home security packages include a pet type motion sensor which uses infrared to detect human body heat that pass through its field of view. Our pet type motion sensors distinguish between the heat radiation emitted from an animal and a human intruder to reduce false alarms. Plus, our security systems all feature wireless technology so there are no wires for your pet to chew or damage.

All our home security packages have smoke and heat detectors and carbon monoxide sensors available as optional upgrades. Detectors and sensors not tied in to your security system are fine if you are home to respond when they go off, but what if you aren't home? Not only your property, but also your pet, is in danger! When you choose smoke and heat detectors that are integrated into your security system, the fire department is automatically alerted in the event of an emergency. When carbon monoxide is present, you can receive notifications via email or your cell phone with Remote System Control.

Tips for Using your Security System to Protect your Pet:

  • Install a door/window sensor on a pet door to keep burglars from using it as an entry point. You can also set the door sensor to chime when it is opened or closed.
  • Give pet sitters or dog walkers their own security system access code so you know when they entered and exited your home.
  • Don't leave your pets with a sitter that you don't trust. Check references to make sure that they will care for your pets properly and not be a risk to your property.
  • Unfortunately, pet theft does exist. Pedigree dogs, birds, and exotic pets are the usual targets. This is why you need to make sure your home is always secure when you are away. According to Last Chance for Animals, up to 2 million pets are stolen each year for resale, or to research laboratories, dog fighting rings, or puppy mills.

Take your Pet's Safety to the Next Level with Sievers' Options for Video Surveillance & Remote System Control:

  • Home Video Surveillance allows you to check in on your pet or pet sitter when you are not home so you can monitor their behavior from anywhere in the world on your smartphone, tablet or laptop.
  • Optional temperature sensors can alert you if your home gets too hot or too cold for your pet. For example, a flood sensor placed beneath an aquarium can immediately alert you to leaks. With Remote System Control, you can receive real-time alerts via email or text message.

Fire Safety Tips for Pet Owners

    According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), house fires affect an estimated 500,000 pets, 40,000 of which die from smoke asphyxiation. The NFPA estimates that almost 1,000 fires are accidentally started each year by pets. To help prevent risks to your pet and your home, follow these fire safety tips:
  • Don't leave open flames unattended, including candles, fireplaces, and gas stoves. The warm, glowing lights attract curious animals.
  • Remove or cover stove knobs when you are not home. According to the NFPA, this is the number one way that pets start fires in homes.
  • Make sure puppies and kittens are secured in a safe place before you leave home to keep them away from all types of hazards.
  • If your pet is exposed to smoke, take them to the vet as soon as possible, since animals can suffer serious consequences of smoke inhalation in just a few seconds.
