Ghosts, vampires, and goblins, oh my! Halloween can certainly be a spooky time of year with the sun setting earlier and figures lurking in the shadows. However, what really scares burglars the most is getting caught. Prevent your home from becoming a vulnerable target and give intruders the chills with these four essential smart home devices.
1. Smart Security Camera
Enjoy the Halloween festivities, but still keep an eye on your property. Monitor activity occurring around key entry points at your home, like your driveway and front door. Setup customized video clips and video alerts so you’re only notified when a person, car, or animal is spotted – not normal, everyday activity. Outdoor cameras placed around your home also help to act as a deterrent against would-be burglars possibly stopping them in their tracks.
2. Smart Lighting
Protect your home and make sure that those approaching your front porch are trick-or-treaters, and not unwanted visitors. Increasing your home’s visibility with exterior smart lighting will aid in scaring away any hidden figures. Trigger lights to come on when your image sensor or exterior video cameras sense motion. Planning to go trick-or-treating? Set a schedule for your lights to turn on at dusk right before heading out giving the appearance you’re home.
3. Contact Sensors
Safeguard your family beyond Halloween night, and place contact sensors on areas that could be dangerous to your children, such as the pool gate, shed door, or backyard fence gate. In the event your children are feeling mischievous, you’ll receive a mobile notification letting you know one of these “no-no” doors have been opened.
4. Doorbell Camera
Video doorbell cameras provide you with 24/7, visual protection against would-be intruders. Whether or not someone rings your doorbell, rest easy with motion-triggered alerts, live video feeds, two-way voice, and the ability to see and speak with visitors from anywhere. Hosting a Halloween party at home? Easily let party guests in. When guests ring your doorbell, verify your guest in your Alarm.com app, and use your smart lock to easily unlock the door for them using your connected front door device.
