    "Hi Nan, if your alarm does not have pet friendly sensors then you will most likely get false alarms, pet sensors will work on the weight of your pet and generally can ignore pets upto 22kg in weight, my advice if your pet is more than 22kg it to replace the sensor with something on the door/window instead to prevent false alarms."

    "Most systems now incorporate the use of pet friendly passive infra red sensors which will generally be more immune to the average-sized pets."
