How to Use Home Surveillance Next Time You’re on Vacation
Leaving Your Las Vegas Home for A Trip? No Worries!
Whether you’re visiting in-laws in Palm Springs or jetting off to Asia, leaving your house unoccupied for an extended time can leave it vulnerable to crime and break-ins. Even if you’re only across town for the day, you never truly know how safe your home is while you’re away. Luckily, modern technology makes home surveillance more accessible than ever, and an automated home security system takes safety many steps further than a video doorbell.
To see how you’ll protect your Las Vegas home on your next trip, discover how smart security works below!
You’ll Stay in the Know
While you’re enjoying your trip, you won’t have to remind yourself to check the surveillance cameras every few hours. After all, vacations are about relaxation, and you shouldn’t stress about the dog sitter stopping by or a potential thief entering the house. Your system by Alarm.com or Savant will automatically notify your phone if your house’s sensors detect motion, so you’ll never miss important activity.
From there, you can check camera footage to see what set off the alert. If you see something unusual, you can call the police immediately. If you’re unsure of the situation, you can always ask a neighbor or nearby family member to check on your house. Alerts also work with smart locks on your doors. When someone enters your home, you’ll be notified which door opened. If you weren’t expecting anyone to visit, you’d assess the situation through cameras immediately.
Remotely Manage Locks
If you’ve hired a dog sitter, house sitter, or someone to water the plants and bring in mail, your security system can make the process even easier. With smart locks, you can create specific passcodes for those visiting your house while you’re away. You can also receive alerts when the code is used, and easily deactivate passcodes from the system’s app. So, if someone is stopping by only once, you can cancel their permissions afterward. This is also helpful for pet sitters who need to check in every day, as you won’t have to worry about lost keys.
Make It Look as Though You Never Left
A completely dark home might as well have a sign on the door that says, “Rob me!” And leaving lights on uninterrupted for a week is not only wasteful but will also make your house look unattended. From your smart security system, you can toggle the lights on and off right from the app. We can help you connect smart lighting to the same system as your cameras, sensors, and locks, and set lights to a schedule. With motorized shades incorporated too, you can raise and lower blinds throughout the day, adding to the illusion that everyone’s home.
With an automated home security system, you’ll never have to worry about the state of your house while away. To improve your home surveillance, call Eagle Sentry at (702) 736-8880 or submit our online form. You can also chat with a member of our team below!
