Emergency Responder Pet Awareness

Camera features for pet tracking

đź’ˇAt the bottom, there are links where you can learn more about the topics introduced here.

Let's get started!

Inform Emergency Responders of Your Pets

By adding the details of your pets into your account, emergency responders will automatically receive this information in the event of an emergency. While you may not be home or accessible at the time of an emergency, emergency responders may be able to make a rescue and save your pet knowing he/she is inside. If you didn't add this information during your initial setup Click “How to Inform Emergency Responders of your Pets” at the bottom to learn more.

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.​

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!

Utilize Perimeter Guard in your Video Analytics rule to automatically deter your pet when they take unwanted actions. Perimeter Guard with the Indoor Camera can be used to:​

  • Whistle at a pet when they jump up where they shouldn’t, like onto the couch or the kitchen table.​

  • Play a loud series of beeps if they cross into an off limits area, like a bedroom or office.

  • Keep a pet away from kitchen countertops by playing loud beeps if the camera see's them above the countertop's height .
