Get Smart for a Carefree Vacation
Vacation time is finally here! But so are the year’s highest burglary rates!* Before you head out for your summer vacation, consider these “smart” products that let you monitor your home from anywhere using your smartphone.
A smart plug turns any electronic device into one that can be controlled remotely from a mobile device or put on a schedule to create the illusion that someone’s home. No more leaving a light on for a week, wasting electricity and money – and not fooling would-be thieves.
Use your smartphone to see, hear and speak to anyone at the door whether you’re in the kitchen or out of town.
KEYLESS DOOR LOCK
Control access to your home with your smartphone. No more leaving keys under the mat for dog walkers or neighbors who are looking after your place while you’re out of town.
Most smart thermostats are built with vacations in mind, so you won’t have to worry about wasting energy while you’re away – or coming home to a hot house.
Worrying about your furry friend who’s left behind at home can detract from the fun of a vacation. A pet camera can help you feed, play and interact with a pet while you’re away.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
EMC Security, a subsidiary of Walton EMC, offers a variety of competitively-priced smart products that are compatible with your existing fire/security systems. Integrating smart lights, thermostats and locks with an existing system will simplify safety and security measures while you’re away.
