Doggy DoorDo you have pets at home? If yes, you probably have a pet door or thinking about having one. You love your pets and you want them to feel at home and be able to go in and out as they need. However, will installing a pet door compromise my home security?

If, despite the compromise in your security, you still want to have a pet door installed, good news!

You can have a pet door installed but make sure you let the professionals do it for you. A professional installer knows how to do the installation while decreasing your risk of danger.

Here are some ideas to add to your security:

  • Sensor light. There are lights that come on when sensors detect movement. Some sensors have a weight rating so if you have a small dog or cat you can set them low preventing the lights going off when the pass but anything bigger will trigger the light.
  • Pet door sensors that are designed only unlock the door when the collar worn by your pet is within a few feet. This can help stop other cats or dogs entering you home too.
  • Deadlocks on all the doors and windows. Make sure that the other openings to your home are secured and properly lock. Some insurance companies have made lock mandatory on their policies. If an intruder comes in through the pet door locks also makes sure they can’t get out carrying your valuables.
