Getting Your Home Ready for Summer Vacation
This time of year usually has us packing our bags for a summer vacation, even if it’s just for a couple of days. But before you go, there may be things to keep you busy at the office while the kids are at the house. What can you do to make sure things stay safe at home?
Home Security Plan
With quarantine restrictions gradually being lifted, we are slowly returning to our offices. The kids are home from school now, and if they are of a responsible age, they are staying at home. Do you have a plan in place in case any emergency or unforeseen event occurs? Go over possible scenarios that could happen, and make a prepared action to solve it, or handle it. Your name is at the top of the list to call, but what if you are not available? Make sure there additional trusted names on there. Go over what to do if the doorbell rings. Thankfully, they should not have to take care of that since you can answer the two-way video doorbell from wherever you may be. The children should also know how to arm and disarm your home alarm system if they are allowed to come and go.
Other than that invaluable video doorbell, how else can we keep the kids safe while we’re working? It’s very convenient seeing who is on our front doorstep, but what about the rest of our property? Allied can get you set up for a full exterior view of your yard. Be alerted to any activity going on close to your home. Inside cameras can let you check up on how the kids or even the pets are doing during the day. View a live stream or review previous footage on any smartphone or computer.
Home Security While You’re Away
The time finally comes for that long-awaited vacation. Will you be able to relax while you are away with no one at the house? You might have the video doorbell to see when there is a package arrival or an unexpected visitor. With a two-way conversation capable video doorbell, you can speak to whoever is at the door. They will be unaware if you are home or not. But is that enough? You may have added the outdoor home security cameras to get an alert if there is someone on your property. Now you will have to rely on a trusted neighbor or someone close by to check for you. Allied Home Security can help you with that situation also. With the award-winning Brinks Monitoring can keep watch on your home 24/7. When the alerts come in, they are quick to send the proper emergency response team out to evaluate the situation. Having trusted contacts listed will further help them with making the local decisions if you are out of town.
