How To Remain Confident In Your Home Security While On Vacation

You have plenty to worry about when planning a vacation. You have an endless list of tasks like finding a place to stay, airplane tickets, and car rentals. You shouldn't need to wonder if your house will be protected when nobody’s there. 

The good news is you won’t have to be worried about your home security while on vacation if you use the up-to-date tools. Through a smart home security system, you'll have the safety to be worry-free in your travels. That’s because you’ll have full command with your mobile app and your monitoring service pros on your side.

The ADT Security App Can Make It Look Like You Are Home

Imagine that someone approaches your home while you're hundreds of miles away, enjoying a pina colada at your beachside resort. A mobile notification lets you look at your doorbell camera video feed. It seems to be a delivery person, but to be sure, you thank her with the security app’s two-way talk feature. Then you turn on the front porch light or assign your neighbor a one-time-use smart lock code so they can put the delivery into the front hall for you.

A complete home security system should come with a robust mobile app that allows you to control a lot of your security and home automation equipment. The app should let you:

  • Get phone texts when a device senses unusual motion
  • Turn on and off your security sensors
  • Set lock PINs and check the status of your doors
  • Get live feeds of your home security cameras
  • Create rules for your alarms and cameras
  • Flip on and dim your smart lighting

Lean On 24/7 Monitoring When You’re Gone

A mobile app is a modern must for home security when you’re on vacation, but who's going to be in charge of getting emergency help when you’re not home? As you have a 24/7 monitoring team with your home security contract, you'll have trained pros at the wheel in case of an emergency. If one of your door or window sensors are triggered, the monitoring agents will call both emergency responders and you about the threat. Then the team can become a contact between the authorities and you until you get back home.
