Can pets interfere with the proper functioning of the alarm system?
The motion detectors sold by HSS are specially designed to allow pets weighing up to (approx. 55 lbs). to move freely without impacting the alarm system. We also offer solutions for larger pets. In any case, it would be a good idea to let us know if you have a pet so that we can add the information to your file and check with you to see if your motion detectors are properly located, especially if you adopt a new pet that may have different habits. For example, while a dog usually moves on the ground, a new cat could jump on the furniture, a habit that should be taken into consideration when positioning older motion detectors.
