Now that the country is in the early stages or reopening after the COVID-19 pandemic, people are starting to feel the “itch” to get out into public places and spend some time away from home for a change. Whether gone for a couple of hours, off to the office for the day, or possibly taking a long weekend at the beach, your home security alarm system can stay behind to stand guard over your property. The really great thing about smart home security systems is that many of their features can be operated from your smartphone or tablet so you can keep tabs on what’s happening at home while you’re away. Here are a few of the essential smart devices you might want to include in your system that will serve you well during the summer and throughout the year:
- Smart Door Locks: Gone are the days when you would need to sit around and wait for service people to show up to take care of repairs or home improvements. With a smart door lock, you can unlock the door remotely as the workers arrive, then relock it behind them when they are done.
- Smart Doorbells: Used in conjunction with smart door locks, smart doorbells can alert you when someone arrives at your door and provides a two-way communication feature so you can provide instructions for service or delivery people.
- Indoor/Outdoor Video Cameras: Outdoor cameras can also let you know when someone is visiting your home and can live-stream the action to you. Indoor cameras can let you keep an eye on service people if you are having work done in your home while you aren’t there. The cameras can also save recorded video so you can have a backup if there is a dispute about any of the work done in your home.
- Smart Home Security: With smart home security systems, you can access a number of different features in your home including the lighting, the thermostat, and the alarm itself.
