Default Hedgies Tripping Security Alarms

Does anybody have a home security system/alarm? Will I have to worry about a li'l hedgie tripping the alarm? My planned spot for my hedgie is in a relatively sheltered area of the home with minimal light/etc. The only thing is there's a motion sensor about 5 feet away a little above it.

Why are you trying to keep your hedgie in an area with little light?

I'm in the planning stages at the moment... no hedgie yet so lots of time for change. It was my understanding light regulation is good, so I'd have a desklamp on a timer. The area isn't pitch black (except maybe at night when the rest of the house is dark?), just no windows and no direct sunlight. There are no air vents directly near by and is a good space where I can put a heater, etc... suggestions are welcome!

Ahh I see ^-^ Well it really doesn't matter if there is sunlight as long as the cage is not in direct sunlight and as long as you are not relying on it to be your only source of light. If it's a good space though, then I'd say go for it. As for the alarm system going off, I have absolutely no idea @[email protected] Sorry I could not be of much help for your actual question though x]

Not sure what kind of system you have but I know that a lot of them have settings where you can control the height that the sensor picks up since a lot of people have dogs and cats that move around when they are gone. When you get your hedgie you could always give it a test run and see if it sets if off, if it does you can always get one of those folding screen dividers and put it on the side of the cage that is in the path of the motion sensor so that it won't set it off. All systems are different so its just something that might work. Kudos to you for researching beforehand

Do you mean like if they are running on their wheel or around the cage that will set off the alarm? I'm sorry, but I have no clue!

Hedgieonboard... thanks! I suppose I'll just have to wait and see. I'm guessing I won't have much luck telling the hedgie to run on demand! I think our alarm is supposed to accommodate pets, but being so close who knows. My friend had an alarm that was okay provided the dog didn't get TOO close to the motion sensor. I'm curious if anybody else has an alarm (and owns a hedgie).

tie-dye... yep, that's exactly what I'm talking about! I'm sure a li'l hedgie isn't much cause for concern, but when they're running on a 12" they're now bigger than they seem.
