How To Remain Confident In Your College Station Home Security While On Vacation

You have enough to think about when starting a trip. There’s the endless list of tasks like hotel reservations, flight tickets, and car rentals. You shouldn't have to wonder if your house will be safe when nobody’s there. 

The great news is you won’t have to be worried about your College Station home security while on vacation if you use the right security system. With a smart home security system, you'll have the safety to be self-assured during your stay. And that starts with havingcomplete command with the smart phone app and a 24/7 monitoring team on your side.

The Right Security App Makes It Appear Like You Are In The House

Imagine that someone is approaching your College Station house while you're a few states away, hanging out at your beachside resort. A mobile notification tells you to check out your doorbell camera video feed. It seems to be a Amazon delivery person, but to be sure, you thank her using the security app’s two-way talk feature. Then you remotely turn on the front porch light and assign a friend a temporary smart lock PIN code so they can put the delivery into the kitchen for you.

A state-of-the-art home security system should come with a easy-to-use mobile app that allows you to command almost all home security and automation components. The app will let you:

  • Receive phone notifications when a device senses unusual movement
  • Disarm and arm your security sensors
  • Make lock codes and check the status of your smart locks
  • View live feeds of your College Station security cameras
  • Set rules for your devices
  • Turn up and off your smart lighting

Lean On Your 24/7 Monitoring Team When You Leave

A smartphone app is a modern must for College Station home security when you’re on vacation, but who's going to take care of contacting emergency responders when you’re away? As you have a 24/7 monitoring team in your home security package, you'll have knowledgeable experts at the ready in case of an emergency. If one of your door or window sensors are tripped, your monitoring staff will contact both the police and you about the possible intrusion. Then ADT can act as a contact for you and the authorities until you can return.
