Summer is the time to pack the car and hit the road. The beach, the mountains, even the Grand Canyon are where people flock this time of year. That means a lot of time away from home without a good way to check in on your home. Sure you could give your teenage nephew the keys and ask him to bring in the paper, but that comes with a whole bunch of possible complications. What if he forgets about the paper?! A better idea is to have a home automation and security system involved. Why? Keep reading to find out!
Eye In the Sky (Or Pocket)
The best way to keep an eye on your home is to have security cameras installed and connected to your home automation system. This way all you’ll have to do is fish your phone out of your pocket, open the Alarm.com app, and you’ll be able to have a live look at what’s going on around your house, inside and out.
Did You Lock the Door?
Travel can be stressful, especially when you’ve been on the road for three hours and a sense of panic hits. “Did you lock the door?” Habits like locking the door when you leave the house can be forgotten in the excitement of getting your vacation started. By including connected locks in your home security system, you’ll be able to make sure your home is secure without having to turn that car around.
Throw Your Own Welcome Home Party
Man, what a great vacation, but now you’re almost home. No one like coming back from a summer vacation to a stifling hot house that hasn’t felt the cool of air conditioning in a week or more. Home automation lets you control your thermostat remotely, so you can make sure your house is nice and chilly when you finally return home.
