At GuardMe Security, we think it is always a good time to reflect on improving our safety, but summer does pose its own threats and challenges that we should all consider addressing.
Whether you are out of town or just about town, here are some ways your home security and home automation system can help you stay safe.
Use Remote Door Locking Technologies
Whether you forgot to lock the door or just want the assurance your home is secure, Zwave door locks allow you to control multiple locks with smartphone or tablet and get real-time alerts when doors are locked or unlocked. This means you never have to drive back home “just to make sure” you really did lock the door.
Burglars expect you to be gone frequently during the summer months and use this time to their advantage. Once gaining entry, all it takes is a few minutes to devastate your life.
Install Intrusion Alarms
Burglars expect you to be gone frequently during the summer months and use this time to their advantage. Once gaining entry, all it takes is a few minutes to devastate your life. If your security is breached getting authorities on site quickly is essential. Equip your home with a home security system to both deter the criminal and to help catch them in the act.
Never Crack the Windows, Use Climate Control
The temperature is rising and cracking the window a bit will not hurt a bit, right? Not so warns the Hoboken and other NJ police departments. In fact, burglary is an opportunistic crime and burglars look for just such a scenario to take advantage of unsuspecting residents. Rather than cracking the window, use climate control systems to cool the home just prior to your return.
Use Video Surveillance
Overt and covert video cameras are proven to deter crime. They also provide a window to your world while you are away from home through remote viewing apps, so you will always know if something is amiss. You can even set custom actions to record activity at specific times to increase your security and your peace of mind.
Have Fire and Life Safety Systems Installed
We all worry about things like fire while we are away from home because while we are away there is little we can do to intervene and protect our property. A professionally monitored fire system can alert you, and authorities to smoke, fire, carbon monoxide, and even flooding to keep your family and home safe.
