Best Smart Home Devices for Those on the Go
When leaving for a fun-filled vacation weekend or a long road trip for work, the last thing you want to worry about is whether or not your assets at home are safe and protected. In a world where we share all of our plans and locations on social media, it’s important to ensure you have the right smart home security system technology installed at home to prevent home invasions while you’re away.
The FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics stated that there were an estimated 1,230,149 burglaries in 2018. Together, these crimes are estimated at about $3.4 billion in property losses. When looking at the numbers, paying a small monitoring fee for a smart home security system and knowing your assets are safe seems like a small cost.
If you are always on the go, here are a few smart home devices that can give you peace of mind while you’re away:
Smart Home Doorbell Camera
Know exactly who is at your front door whether you’re in the backyard or halfway across the globe. Live monitoring sends a simple notification directly to your cell phone when motion is detected, allowing you to keep tabs on who is on your property no matter where you are.
Features such as HD-video, two-way talk, and customizable motion-detection are ideal for those who might not always be at home, but still need to monitor what’s going on at or around their humble abode. Peace of mind is right at your fingertips with a simple device that attaches to the outside of your home.
Preventing home invasions is usually the first reason folks think about installing smart home security systems, however, the last thing you want to return home to is a flooded kitchen, bathroom, or garage. We love explaining to customers how smart home devices can do a lot more than just prevent theft.
You can easily minimize damage and stress by installing water sensors that can send instant notifications when a leak is detected. Building your personal smart home means more than just protecting your home from burglaries; adding flood detector sensors can save your wallet a lot of hassle in the long run.
Wireless Asset Protection
If your home is equipped with outdoor flat screens, expensive planters, indoor paintings, safes, or family heirlooms you might want to take extra precaution by installing wireless sensors that send you an instant notification when the item has been moved. This is ideal for those who travel often and want to keep a close eye on specific objects.
If the item has been tampered with or physically relocated, you will receive a text message notification immediately, giving you time to take action no matter where you are.
