Traveling for work and an empty house


There are also alarms and notifications for issues such as smoke, moisture and carbon monoxide

My job requires me to travel a lot. I am away from home for days or even weeks at a time. Before investing into a home automation system, I used to worry about what I would discover when I returned home. If the furnace failed and the pipes burst, I would have had no way of knowing. If a windstorm dropped a tree on my roof, the damage could have easily become extensive during my absence. I also worried about theft, vandalism, fire and all sorts of concerns. I would sometimes stress over whether or not I had remembered to lock the door, adjust the thermostat or unplug the coffee pot. The automation system has been an amazing improvement. It provides real-time access at any time and from virtually anywhere. I can watch real-time video footage that reassures all is as it should be. I receive notifications if there is a power outage or severe temperature fluctuation. I am alerted if someone steps onto the property and can see who is standing at my door. Even if I’m on the other side of the country, I can converse with them and even unlock the door. I can provide servicemen a temporary code to get inside for repairs or maintenance. I like the ability to turn on and off different lights to make it seem like someone is at home. There are also sensors on the windows that sound an alarm if the glass is damaged or anyone attempts to open the windows. Anyone entering the home needs to provide a code or the alarm goes off. The alarm is extremely loud. There are also alarms and notifications for issues such as smoke, moisture and carbon monoxide. When I return home, I can easily make sure the lights are on, the garage door opens and the living space is the perfect temperature.
