Reasons Dog Families Still Need Home Security Systems:
1. Dogs Are Not ConnectedOne of the main reasons dogs fail as home security systems is the fact that they are not connected. As a result, your dog is only going to 'alert' you to something happening in and/or around your home if you are actually there to hear your dog. If you are on vacation, you are not going to hear your dog barking. At the same time, you are likely not going to have your dog in your home on vacation either. Therefore, your dog is not an effective home security system replacement.
2. Dog's Senses Are Not As Good As Home Security SystemsWhile your dog might be excellent at sensing something wrong or an intruder, they are not going to be able to detect something each and every time. A home security system is not going to fail. Whereas, your dog might be tired one day or even unable to sense something happening.
3. Dog's Are VulnerableEven if your dog is ruthless and not friendly to strangers, they can still be easily influenced by a potential intruder to your home. Whether it's through bribing them with food or something else, your dog can be vulnerable to criminals that know what they are doing and that come prepared.
4. Not A Good DeterrentWhile it's true, dogs can do a good job of alerting you to potential intruders and issues with your home security, they are not going to be the best deterrents. The fact is, your dog might bark at a lot of different things throughout each and every day. Because of this, you nor your neighbors are going to know exactly why they are barking at all times.
They could be barking at a cat or another animal for all anyone knows. As a result, it is not going to deter the criminal necessarily. Whereas, if your alarm system goes off, everyone is going to know why it is going off which is much more likely to effectively deter them from continuing to break in.
Overall, there are plenty of reasons even dog families should be installing home security systems instead of relying on their dogs as a sort of make-shift security system.
