Pet-Friendly Camera Features 

Watch what your pet does when they think you're not watching with live video in the Frontpoint app streamed right from your cameras. Set up a Frontpoint Indoor Camera* with Video Analytics in your home to send notifications when a clip is recorded of your pet.

Track your pet's movement throughout the day, get notified, and automatically record clips if ​your pet goes on the couch​...

    • ….or jumps over the hallway barrier
    • ….or enters the bedroom (or bathroom, etc.)
    • ….or visits the backyard

Easily save and share the cutest clips of your pet with friends and family with built-in video-sharing on the ​Frontpoint app​. At the end of the day, review all the best clips from your pet's day with Highlights

Select the "animals" option (shown in the image below) while creating a Video Analytics rule to receive notifications for clips of your pets.​ To learn how to create Video Analytics rules from the Frontpoint app, click here

Use virtual Ground Zones and multi-directional Tripwires with Video Analytics to send an alert when your pet enters an off-limits area. If your pet jumps up on the sofa or crosses into the wrong part of the house, you'll get a notification. With Two-Way Audio you can speak to your pet and tell them to get off the couch!

*Video Analytics is also available with the Frontpoint Outdoor Camera

Additional User Codes

Gain more visibility into who disarmed the system and when with additional user codes. Provide your dog walkers and pet sitters with their own code to disarm the system while you're away, then use the Frontpoint app to make sure your furry best friend is picked up or dropped off on time.

If needed, the additional code can be customized as a temporary user code that will no longer disarm the system after a set amount of time. To learn how to create additional user codes with the Frontpoint app, click here.

Frontpoint Smart Door Lock 

Install a Frontpoint Smart Door Lock, then create and share unique (and temporary if desired) entry codes for dog walkers and pet sitters so they don't need a key. Assign a name to each code and get notified when they enter or leave your home through the Frontpoint app.

With in-app event history, keep a record of up to 90 days of who is coming in and out of your home using the Smart Door Lock

Door and Window Sensor

Create advanced notifications to trigger an alert when a Door and Window Sensor on a door is left open- alerting you to close the door and keep pets safe indoors.

The Door and Window Sensor can keep your pet safe and help you track their activity. With in-app event history, you can see how long your pet was outdoors by reviewing their enter and exit history. You can also review a record of up to 90 days on the Frontpoint app of when your pet went in and out of their dog door.

Mount the Door and Window Sensor to your dog door using one of the methods shown above depending on the design of the door. 

 

Motion Sensor or Glass Break Sensor

The Motion Sensor is intentionally designed so pets under 40 pounds won't set it off.​ The Motion Sensor is infrared-based, meaning it detects movement by looking for a source of heat moving perpendicularly across its field of view. Make sure a pet under 40lbs cannot climb on an elevated surface and get to the same height as the motion sensor to avoid a false alarm.

For bigger pets, the Motion Sensor can be installed between 7.5 and 9.5 feet off the ground to avoid a false alarm from your pet's motion. Alternatively, the Frontpoint Glass Break Sensor is sometimes purchased instead of the Motion Sensor as a different approach to secure a large area. While the Glass Break Sensor will detect the sound of breaking glass instead of motion, it still will alert you if an intruder were to break into your home.

Smoke & Heat Sensor and Carbon Monoxide Sensor

The Smoke and Heat Sensor protects your pet while you're away by notifying you and the fire department if fire or smoke is detected.Unlike traditional smoke detectors, emergency responders will come to the rescue even if you aren't there to take action.

The Carbon Monoxide Sensor also keeps your pet safe while you’re away by sending emergency responders if this poisonous gas is detected.
