Smart Home Security Technology Takes the Worry Out of Travel

Planning to take the family on a little getaway this March break? If so, you probably have home security on your mind (along with a thousand other things). Thankfully new technology is making it easier than ever before to feel confident when leaving our homes alone.

Smart Locks

Never worry about whether you’ve forgotten to lock your door again!

That’s only one of the many benefits that come with fitting your home with a smart lock. In addition to being able to remotely lock and unlock your door from your smart phone, you can also assign access codes to the people whom you actually do want to have access to your home while you’re away. That means the pet sitter, house cleaner, and even a trusted neighbour can access your home to take care of things while you’re gone. What’s better is that most smart locks monitor the use of these codes, alerting you every time they’re used.

Smart Doorbells

If someone comes to the door of your home while you’re away, a smart doorbell can show you who it is. That’s because most units come equipped with motion sensing, video, and two-way audio. Although, some model can offer even more than that.

Smart Security Systems

Smart home security systems allow you to monitor your home from the comfort of your smart phone. They are WiFi connected and can make use of a few different monitoring components, such as window and door sensors, motion detectors, cameras, and more. Some of these systems are professionally monitored, while others are DIY.

The majority of these new smart security systems can work hand in hand with Alexa and Google Home.  This means that you can use voice commends to initiate actions such as disarming your system for the cat sitter or opening the garage door for a scheduled delivery.
