Keep an Eye on Your Home When You’re Away with the Help of Home Automation

Let a Home Automation Company Secure Your Home with Remote Access

Keep an Eye on Your Home When You’re Away with the Help of Home Automation

So, you’ve made your way from the frigid climates to the warm desert of Phoenix, AZ, to enjoy the weather, relax with friends, and sit by the pool until the end of spring begins to thaw the northern realms. Smart move. For some, it’s easy to leave their home behind, knowing they have a good neighbor to keep an eye on it or one of their family members to hold down the fort. 

For others, however, leaving their home unattended can be unsettling. Extreme weather conditions, thieves that set their sights on unoccupied homes, and months wondering if all is well back home can take their toll. What should be a relaxing and enjoyable interlude turns into a worrisome experience.

The great news is that integrating a few smart home devices or a whole home automation system can dispel your concerns. As a home automation company serving Phoenix, AZ, many of our clients are snowbirds that share their time between two states.

Smart Home Sensors

A few of the major concerns for seasonal residents are leaks, frozen pipes, or flooding from flash thaws. While you may have taken preventative measures, the whims of mother nature are not easy to predict. Extreme cold or an unexpected heatwave can play havoc on a home. 

When smart home sensors are integrated with a home automation system like Control4, you’ll receive an emergency alert when something goes awry, whether increased water or humidity or a sudden temperature change. Freeze sensors placed on water lines can let you know when it’s time to call your handyman or a close neighbor. Some sensors or smart valves will automatically turn off a home’s water supply when a leak is detected. 

A Smart Security System

smart security system allows you to connect to it via your laptop, tablet, or smartphone. You’ll be able to see your home through the lens of the cameras, letting you know all is well or there’s trouble afoot. We can program the system to alert you when there’s movement or a window or door has been tampered with. 

Today's security cameras offer crystal-clear vision, zoom in on any movement or person, and can even provide facial recognition. Built-in speakers and a mic let you communicate with whoever stops by. A home automation system will enable you to unlock the door and disarm the security to let a neighbor in who’s checking up on a temperature alert. When they leave, you can resecure your home. 

home automation system can also make your home look occupied by raising and lowering blinds throughout the day, turning lights on and off, and even playing music on random occasions, just as if you were home.
