Hi @bvinny ,

You might be interested in the Motion Sensor Gen 2, which is calibrated to ignore pets up to 60lbs. But even if you have larger pets, the system can be configured with a combination of Entry Sensors (that go on your doors and windows) as well as Glassbreak Sensors (that listen for the sound of smashing windows), and of course our new Smart Alarm Indoor Camera, for full coverage of your home.

If you don't have a system already, I strongly suggest reaching out to our dedicated Sales team so we can put together a system that best fits your needs.

The motion sensors are supposed to ignore pets. 

However, I do not use motion sensors because my wife likes dogs and my daughter likes cats and there are many of them roaming throughout the house at all hours.  

I'm sure that someone else will be able to give their input on how reliable they are with pets.
