How Home Security Helps Protect Your Space for the Holidays
Stay Safe While You’re at Home and Away
It may not feel like it yet, but before you know it, the fall and winter holidays will be here. From Halloween to Thanksgiving, to all the December events, you’re going to have a lot of festive fun for the remainder of the year.
But all that fun comes with a lot of extra foot traffic and a lot of extra travel. That means it’s time to upgrade your smart home security system.
How can smart security protect your Houston property this during this holiday season? Find out here.
Halloween is a lot of downright spooky fun. Whether you’re designing the most terrifying haunted house on the block or you just love to buy big bags of candy corn, there’s always something to enjoy in October.
But the holiday also presents a unique dilemma – it’s the one time of year you welcome masked strangers at your front door.
Sure, those strangers may be small and adorable, but the added activity around your property increases a need for safety.
Smart surveillance cameras and integrated lighting control can help. Receive instant notifications to your smartphone or tablet every time someone approaches your door. Pull up clear, real-time footage of trick-or-treaters as they approach. Maintain safety with well-lit walkways that show the neighborhood kids exactly where to go. And be the first to know if anyone deviates from the path.
When you integrate your surveillance system and lighting, your security is stronger than ever.
Thanksgiving is another time of year when you welcome people into your home for food and fun. The difference is, they’re usually close family and friends, or relatives from out of town.
You want them to feel welcomed and safe – but you can’t always be there to greet them at the front door.
In those cases, you can utilize integrated video doorbells. When someone rings the bell, pull up footage of them at the front door. When you’re sure you know who they are, let them know with two-way communication via an integrated intercom system.
You can even use smart access control to unlock the front door and let them inside. You won’t even have to take your eye off the turkey roasting in the oven.
Whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukah, or you just want to get away for the New Year, there’s a good chance you’ll be out of the house for extended periods this winter.
That means you need your home to be secure. Integrated controls are a great solution.
A robust alarm system and remote monitoring service is the best way to protect your home while you’re away. If the alarm activates, an agent will notify the proper authorities. You’ll also receive a push notification and remain in contact with your agent for the remainder of the emergency.
By combining smart access control, integrated surveillance, and a robust alarm system – and having a monitoring partner you can trust – you can get the most out of your holidays.
