Keep Your Home Safe While On Holiday

The one thing that makes a nice holiday less appealing is knowing that your home is going to out of sight, but not out of mind. It’s hard to enjoy your Pina Colada while you’re lying on a beach, if all you can think about is someone breaking into your home and stealing your valuables while you are away. The answer to this problem is a simple one. There’s a good reason why more and more people are moving towards home automation. For those who are planning a holiday but are afraid to leave their home at the mercy of others, here are a few ways to make sure your home remains safe while you are away on vacation.

Secure Doors and Windows

Secure home automation allows homeowners to integrate sensors to the doors and windows around their home. These door and window sensors are highly sensitive to any suspicious movement and can be programmed to either sound a loud remote control home alarm or turn on the lights of your home to frighten off any intruders. Smart home sensors can also be programmed to send the homeowner an alert as soon as somebody breaks into your house through the door or window.

Don’t Broadcast Your Absence

One effective way to prevent anyone from breaking into your home while you are away is to be smart about your home automation. For instance, a Control4 lighting system for your home can be preset to turn certain lights around the house on and off during the day for the entire period of your planned vacation. Lighting automation makes sure that the lights of your home are turned on and off during the day and night is the smart way to keep anyone with ill intentions away from your home.

Security Cameras

One feature that’s a must-have when it comes to smart home security is security cameras. But, not just any security cameras. A smart home security camera allows the home owner to inspect their home remotely in real time. The footage from the smart home security cameras are accessible from an app and allows you to view your home even while you are away. And that’s not all, automation also allows the user to turn on the lights or sound the security alarm if someone has broken into your home. Smart home cameras are designed to playback video, zoom and pan, so the authorities are able to identify the perpetrators later on.

Thanks to the advancements in latest home automation technologies, getting a smart home is not just something that’s on the wish-list of forward thinking gadget lovers, but also for those homeowners who want to keep their property safe and secure while they are on vacation. To truly get the full advantage of the latest automated home technologies it is crucial that you hire an experienced home automation service that will be able to get you the best products at the best prices.
