The Illusion of Being Home
Most homeowners have heard of the “trick” of scheduling lighting to turn on and off according to timers to make it appear that you are home when you really aren’t. Unfortunately, thieves have caught on to this habit, and it’s time to take your home security up a notch. Make your home smart by integrating Control4 home automation’s Mockupancy feature.
Mockupancy is an occupation simulation feature. While you’re home, the system will learn your habits – when lights are on or off, when motorized shades raise or lower, and more. Then, when you’re ready to leave your Seattle home, tap the Away setting on your Control4 smart device or in-wall keypad. Your entire automation system becomes a robust smart security system! Your home will act like you’re there – randomizing the operation of smart devices in your home like lighting, audiovisual equipment and shades.
Beyond including a video doorbell to visually and audibly monitor the happenings at the front of your home, you can incorporate a high-resolution surveillance camera system that you can view from wherever you are over the holidays. In addition to a monitoring service to alert you of security incidents, you can use your smart device to view cameras placed at key points on your Washington property, be notified of detected motion, and even talk to the person ringing your doorbell!
Peace of Mind
With an Alarm.com security system, you can monitor your home whenever you’re away with 24/7 remote monitoring services. You can also conveniently oversee your Seattle property with your smartphone, no matter where in the state – or the world – you’re located! From motion detected around your home to viewing live surveillance feeds; you can even monitor your home for water and carbon monoxide leaks. If an incident occurs, you’ll know immediately and can respond accordingly.
