Cove is a great home security option for renters or those looking for a budget-buy. One of the best perks about Cove is the low professional monitoring cost of $14.99. Additionally, you won’t have to sign any contracts for their service and can choose between two options on how you want to pay for your security system. And with Cove, you’ll avoid any installation fees since their system can be self-installed.
Cove Security installation is fairly easy – here are some basic steps for setting up your system, sensors, and the Yi Indoor Camera.
Cove’s motion sensors are wireless and can detect movement up to 45 ft. with a 90-degree range. They are also pet friendly for your furry friends up to 45 lbs, and can also be adjusted accordingly.
Holding your motion sensor, press the button on the side and wait until your control panel states the motion sensor’s name

How to Adjust your Cove Motion Sensor for Pet Sensitivity
Remove the cover on the back of your motion sensor
Adjust the SENS pen from High to Low sensitivity
Once you’ve adjusted your motion sensor’s sensitivity level, follow these steps to finish installation:
Place the sensor about 6 to 7 feet above the floor in a high traffic area – this can be in a corner or on a wall (Do not face your motion sensor towards a window to prevent false alarms and do not place in an area where the climate is not controlled)
Cove door/window sensors are composed of two parts: a magnet and a contact sensor. Install your sensors on standard doors, sliding doors, sliding windows, and others just as long as the magnet and contact sensor are within an inch apart.
