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

Planning a trip is exhausting enough with hotels, transportation, and events. You shouldn't need to wonder if your house will be protected when you're gone. 

But, if you implement the correct system, you won’t need to think about about your Oakland home security while on vacation. By using a smart home security system, you'll have the security to leave with confidence. And that starts with havingcomplete command through your smart phone app and your 24/7 monitoring team watching over your home.

The Right Security App Can Make It Feel Like You Are Home

Picture that a person approaches your Oakland home while you're a few states away, enjoying a pina colada at your coastside resort. A smart phone text asks you to check out your doorbell camera video feed. It seems to be a Amazon delivery person, but to be sure, you thank her through the security app’s two-way talk feature. Then you turn on the hallway smart light and assign a relative a temporary smart lock PIN so they can place the package into the front hall for you.

A modern home security system should come with a robust smartphone app that lets you manage a lot of your safety and home automation components. The app should let you:

  • Receive phone alerts when a component detects unusual motion
  • Arm and disarm your security system
  • Make lock PINs and see the status of your locks
  • Watch live feeds of your Oakland security cameras
  • Create rules for your devices
  • Turn down and dim your smart lighting

Lean On Your Monitoring Team When You Leave

A smartphone app is a modern necessity for Oakland home security when you’re on vacation, but who's going to handle getting emergency help when you’re away? As you have a monitoring in your home security plan, you'll have trained professionals at the ready if something is wrong. When one of your door or window sensors are triggered, your monitoring pros will get a hold of both emergency responders and you about the possible intrusion. Then the team can become a contact for the authorities and you until you are back.
