How To Feel Confident In Your Decatur Home Security While On Vacation

You have plenty to worry about when planning a trip. There’s the long list of tasks like hotels, airplane tickets, and meal planning. You shouldn't have to worry if your property will be guarded when nobody’s there. 

The good news is you won’t have to be worried about your Decatur home security while on vacation if you implement the right tools. By using a smart home security system, you'll have the tools to be self-assured during your stay. That’s because your security systems give youfull control through a phone app and a monitoring service pros watching over your home.

The Right Security App Can Make It Appear Like You Are In The House

Imagine that someone is approaching your Decatur home while you'rehundreds of miles away, relaxing at your beachside resort. A phone notification lets you look at your doorbell camera video feed. It might be a Amazon delivery person, but to be sure, you thank him using the security app’s two-way talk feature. Then you remotely turn on the porch smart light or give a friend a temporary smart lock PIN code so they can move the package into the front hall for you.

A complete home security system should have a robust phone app that allows you to manage most home security and automation components. The app should let you:

  • Receive phone notifications when a device senses unusual motion
  • Disarm and arm your security sensors
  • Set lock PINs and check the status of your locks
  • See live feeds of your Decatur home security cameras
  • Set schedules for your smart components
  • Turn down and off your smart lighting

Lean On 24/7 Monitoring When You’re Gone

A mobile app is a modern marvel for Decatur home security when you’re on vacation, but how are you going to be in charge of getting emergency services when you’re not home? If you have a 24/7 monitoring professional in your home security contract, you'll have trained professionals at the ready to respond to emergencies. When one of your door or window sensors are triggered, the monitoring agents will contact both you and emergency services about the threat. Then they can become a contact between the authorities and you until you are back.
