Why Now Is the Perfect Time to Upgrade Your Home Security System
Prioritize Safety in the Second Half of the Year
By now the kids are back in school, you’re back at work, and you’re waving goodbye to the last few days of warm weather. In other words, summer is almost over.
But just around the corner you’ll have plenty of big fall and winter holidays. That means a lot of foot traffic in and around your property. So how will you ensure the safety of your family and home?
The answer is a home security system upgrade. When you use the right technology, much of the heavy lifting is done for you.
In this blog, we’ll explore some of the smart upgrades you can make to keep your things and the people you love safe this year. Just keep reading for more.
If You’re Going Away
Fall and winter are huge times for travel. Whether you’re gathering the family for Thanksgiving or escaping the Victoria chill with a vacation down in sunny South Florida, you’ll want to keep an eye on your property while you’re away.
A smart home security system does just that. Not only can you stream real-time footage from your surveillance cameras, but you can also receive updates from integrated sensors strategically placed around your property.
Once a sensor detects unwanted movement, it will immediately alert you and arm your system. If the movement continues, your remote monitoring service can review the footage and notify the proper authorities if necessary. That way, you can trust your property is in good hands.
If You’re Hosting a Holiday Party
Increased foot traffic means more chaos in and around your home, especially if you’re hosting family from out of town.
Simplify a lot of the operations by integrating technology. From your automated entry system to HD intercoms, you can welcome everyone – all while making sure the pot roast doesn’t burn!
HD intercoms allow you to communicate throughout your home, so you can answer the door via smartphone, tablet, or wall-mounted controller. Once you’ve confirmed their identity, a simple tap will unlock the entryway, allowing them to come in, even if you can’t make it to the door.
Plus, smart access control allows you to issue unique, temporary codes to friends and family. That way, trusted visitors can enter your home while you’re out. Not only will you receive a notification once they enter, but you’ll also have record of who it was that came in.
