How Smart Home Security Makes Your Next Break Better
Every break you take, no matter how long, is a time to relax. But when you start wondering if everything is OK at home, intrusive thoughts can creep in and stand in the way of your good time. You start asking yourself questions like:
- Is someone feeding the dog as promised?
- I wonder if that thunderstorm damaged the deck?
- Did I remember to lock the back door?
When you’re carrying a hi-tech connection to home—your smartphone with the Alarm.com app—you can put those worries to rest. Here’s how smart home security frees up your headspace so you can get back to the business of enjoying yourself.
Relax: it’s all secure
First, you can stop wondering if you really, truly remembered arm the security system. By setting up reminders for these actions, you can have a proactive reminder if you forget to get it done (and you can always check your app if you get the twitch to make doubly sure).
You’ll also enjoy a whole new level of carefree traveling if your home is professionally protected. With 24/7 monitoring from Coastline Security, your system can signal for help in the event of a fire or break-in, alerting Coastline Security to dispatch emergency services or a security officer.
Check in on four-legged friends
Even with a trusted neighbour looking in on your pets a couple times a day, it’s always good to confirm that your animal companions are safe and cared for.
It’s easy to create a “pet-sitter alert” by giving your pet-sitter their own user code, which can trigger a smartphone alert every time they arrive. If you prefer, a no-show alert will only disturb you if the sitter doesn’t show.
Meanwhile, with smart video monitoring, you can easily look in on your pets anytime.
Get alerted quickly if something goes wrong
When your house is unoccupied, small problems can escalate into large ones.
Smart home security can detect unusual events and alert you proactively when they happen, enabling you to make an emergency call to a friend or neighbor and send them straight to your home.
Save energy when you go; return to comfort
The beauty of the Alarm.com-powered smart home alarm is that all devices can communicate and cooperate with each other. For example, you can set things up so that when you arm your system “away” as you leave for vacation, your smart thermostat automatically sets back to save energy.
Even better, you don’t have to come home to a too-hot or too-cool house. You can enable Alarm.com’s Geo Services to alert your system when you’re getting close to home, triggering your thermostat to make things comfortable for you in advance.
