'pet friendly' sensors.. almost all are, so to speak.
Most are often set high enough, that they will not trigger with movement under the 2 ft range.. so a dog/cat walking by 'shouldnt' trip them.
But through 3 different companies (my parents old house, new house, and my house).. all 3 of them would STILL potentially trip. So i wouldnt trust banking on them that way.
(one reason why i have disabled the sensors in my place most of the time when locking due to the 2 cats and 1 dog)
Comparing the two companies..
Dont have any info on ADTs current hardware.. Hard to even see what they are using on the website.. doesnt show any specifics that i can find.
I currently DO have the Rogers security at home.
No issue so far with any of their hardware (door and motion sensors, glass break sensor, outlet and light controls, front door lock)
As for the camaras. Really comes down to WHAT you are looking for with them.
If you are looking for a camera system which will do a much longer PERIOD of time of storage, from multiple cameras, etc.. you may be better served looking for a separate NVR type system.
I have one of the rogers cameras. All in all, it does work great for what it does. Only limitations are the storage for the video, even with the addon storage card. More cameras, etc would eat up the storage quicker.
Generally more designed for 'event' based recording & notification.
EG: If motion detected on sensor 3, take video and send to me. Or for example, i have it set for my front door, any time the door is opened, to take a video clip.
Could set it for things like if alarm is tripped take video on all cameras, etc.
Currently the rogers system can tie into the Nest Thermostat (only 3rd party thing so far, that you dont have to get from them), but i am hoping that they add support for the nest smoke alarms and cameras as well.
