Lights, Camera, Action!


Summer vacation is upon us, and that means that many of us are planning vacations.  The last thing we want to do while we are soaking up the sun is worry about the security of our home.  Echo Workshop offers the best products to keep you connected, protected, and on top of your home security, whether you’re checking in from work or from across the country. 


Lighting that turns on at various times and in various rooms can be a great deterrent to burglars.  And with a control system like Savant, it is easy to set up various scenes throughout your home.  Your lighting system can be programmed so that it follows your regular schedule, making it appear that you are home.


Let’s start with the basics – a video doorbell from Ring or Doorbird.  Not only can you safely check to see who is dropping by when you’re home, you can also see and talk to visitors from anywhere.  This gives you the ability to not only protect your home, but protect your family by intervening when solicitors or strangers come knocking.

Now let’s add some cameras.  Our cameras will give you a clear look at what is happening at home.  Looking at a crystal-clear picture on your phone, take a tour around your home, or set your system for alerts so you know when someone has entered your property.  Give yourself the peace of mind to know when a package has been delivered or your kids are safely home from school for the day.  And should you have issues with stolen property or vandalism, upload your video so you can share it with the authorities or your insurance carrier.


Now that we have a clear view of what is happening outside of your home, let’s take a few extra steps to help you keep track of what is going on inside your home while you’re away.  CO2 detectors, extra smoke detectors, and flood detectors can help you identify issues early so you can avoid injury or costly repairs to your home.  And, of course, for ease of entry, we love the convenience of automatic door locks.  Not only can you leave the keys at home, you can let trusted service technicians in while you’re away or let your next-door neighbor in to feed Fluffy while you’re body surfing in the Bahamas.

With so many features available, you’re probably wondering about the multitude of apps you will need to control them all.  We have you covered there too.  With a control system from Savant or Control4 to integrate all of these features, you can use just one app for ease of use and convenience. 

Make protecting your home and family part of your summer vacation planning this year.  With the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re well protected, you will be able to relax and enjoy your vacation even more.
