How To Be Confident In Your Austin Home Security While On Vacation

Planning a vacation is hard enough with finding where to go, what to do, and when you can do it. You shouldn't have to wonder if your home will be guarded now that it’s vacant. 

However, if you implement the correct tools, you won’t need to think about about your Austin home security while on vacation. With a smart home security system, you'll have the safety to leave with confidence. That’s because you’ll havecomplete control with your smart phone app and your 24/7 monitoring team at the ready.

The Right Security App Makes It Appear Like You Are At Home

Picture that a visitor approaches your Austin home while you'rehundreds of miles away, relaxing at your beachside resort. A phone text asks you to look at your doorbell camera video feed. It appears to be a delivery person, but to be on the safe side, you thank her using the security app’s two-way talk feature. Then you turn on the front porch smart light or assign a friend a one-time-use smart lock PIN so they can place the delivery into the front hall for you.

A complete home security system should come with a powerful mobile app that lets you command most home security and automation components. The app can let you:

  • See phone texts when a component detects unusual activity
  • Turn of and on your security system
  • Create lock codes and see the status of your locks
  • Get live feeds of your Austin home security cameras
  • Set activation schedules for your alarms and cameras
  • Turn on and dim your smart lights

Lean On Your 24/7 Monitoring Team When You Leave

A smartphone app is a modern must for Austin home security when you’re on vacation, but how are you going to be in charge of getting emergency help when you’re away? If you have a 24/7 monitoring team with your home security package, you'll have knowledgeable professionals at the ready in case of an emergency. After one of yourwindow or door sensors are triggered, the monitoring agents will get a hold of both you and emergency services about the possible intrusion.
