How Smart Home Security Makes Your Vacation More Relaxing

Mar 19 2015
It can be hard to relax on vacation when your house is unoccupied. Peace of mind is at hand, thanks to smart home security powered by Alarm.com.

You won't worry that you left the front door unlocked, or the garage wide open. It won't matter if the neighbor you entrusted with pet-feeding duties loses their key. If your home-alone teen is planning the party of the year, you'll know about it.

That's because Alarm.com proactively protects your home and keeps you aware of what's happening, giving you a more relaxing vacation from start to finish. Here's how.

Make A Smoother Getaway

With Alarm.com, prepping your home for a vacation is a breeze. Smart lighting schedules will make your house look realistically occupied when you're away. You can set your lights to come on at sunset, or at a slightly randomized time every evening for extra realism.

There's no need to get a spare key for your pet-sitter. Simply create a temporary user code for them to unlock your front door's smart lock and disarm your security system. For added peace of mind, set up a smartphone alert that tells you when they come and go. No More Panics on the Road

Ever been 100 miles from home and wondered if you left the door open? With Alarm.com's Geo-Services feature, you'll never need to worry about this again.

Geo-Services sends an alert to your smartphone if you leave home without securing it properly. When you get the alert, all you need to do is tap a button to secure your door, or arm your security system. You'll never need to turn around again.

Leave the Monitoring to the Pros

There are many types of connected video camera that let you monitor your home for problems when you're away. This doesn't necessarily help you switch off and relax.

Alarm.com gives you a better experience: 24-7 professional security monitoring. If there's a break-in or emergency, trained security personnel will alert local emergency services. You can still check your video cameras anytime, but you can also switch off and relax. Someone will respond if there's a fire, even if you're not monitoring your phone.
