Time Saving Residential and Commercial Security Hacks
There isn’t much point to technology if it isn’t making our lives easier or saving time along the way. This has never been more true than in the security industry today; in both the commercial and residential security realms, new tech advancements are saving people time and money, all while providing better security solutions than ever before.
Time-Saving Tips for Your Nightly Security Routine
Whether you’re a business owner seeking to protect your company’s assets or a homeowner looking after the people and pets you love, you likely have a nightly security routine. You check that all the doors and windows are closed and locked, you adjust the thermostat for optimal sleeping comfort, and you might choose to leave outdoor lights on to ward off potential intruders. Going through each room and checking every lock takes time that could be better spent elsewhere.
With smart home technology and mobile surveillance capabilities, all of these task items can be accomplished with a few taps on a phone or tablet. With the touch of a button, you can ensure that all doors and windows are locked, the alarm is set, and the lights are operating according to your schedule.
Daytime Security and Home Management
Smart home technology allows you to monitor and make adjustments to not only your security system, but also lights, locks, and thermostats throughout the day. With Honeywell’s Total Connect app, you can stay connected to your home or business and get alerts sent instantly to you.
Through geofencing technology, you can also program your smart home to prepare for your return. Once your home detects that one of your connected devices is within a certain radius, it can automatically adjust the thermostat to your liking and turn on outdoor lights.
Home Security While You’re Away
If you have a home in the Myrtle Beach area or in other places along the Grand Strand that encounter hurricanes every season, your smart home can automatically detect leaks and send a notification to your connected devices. This feature is particularly useful if the home is not your primary residence; you can stay in the know and send appropriate contractors from wherever you are.
Your time-savings options for smart home monitoring and remote commercial security are limited only by your imagination.
