Make Your Vacation Better With Your Connected SmartHome
Vacation is a time to relax. But when you start wondering if everything is OK at your house, unwelcome thoughts can slither in and stand in the way of your vacation.
Did I turn down the thermostat? Did I set the alarm? Did I remember to lock the back door?
Answer any question by taking just a minute to login remotely and double check on the house so you can get back to enjoying your vacation.
When you're carrying a hi-tech connection to home, your smartphone with our app, you can put those worries to rest. Here's how your connected smarthome frees up your headspace so you can get back to vacation mode.
Make sure pets are safe.
Even with a trusted neighbor 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.
Look after your pets anytime with video monitoring.
If something goes wrong get alerted fast.
When your house is unoccupied, small problems can escalate into large ones. A sudden water leak, which you'd normally spot quickly, can turn into a flood. A door left unlocked can blow open in the wind and stay open overnight.
Your connected smarthome can detect events like these and alert you when they happen, facilitating you to make an emergency call to a friend, neighbor or contractor and send them straight to your home.
Planning on having visitors while on vacation?
If you're wondering how the emergency plumber would get in, a smart lock makes it easier to give immediate access to your home.
A smart video doorbell, combined with a smart lock on your front door, lets you verify a visitor's identity, let them into the house if you choose, then secure the door again when they leave – all from your phone.
Energy savings even on vacation.
The best part of your connected smarthome 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. From your app you can alert your system when you're on your way home, setting your thermostat to make things comfortable for you upon arrival.
Time to relax, everything is secure.
Time to stop wondering if you really, truly remembered to lock the back door, close the garage or arm the security system. By setting up reminders for these actions, you can have a dedicated reminder if you forget any of them.
You'll also enjoy a whole new level of secure traveling if your home is professionally protected. With 24/7 monitoring options, your system can signal for help in the event of a fire or a break in, alerting your monitoring station to dispatch emergency services.
