How To Remain Confident In Your Birmingham Home Security While On Vacation

You have plenty to fret about when planning a trip. There’s the endless list of chores like hotel reservations, flight tickets, and event tickets. You shouldn't need to wonder if your property will be safe when you're gone. 

The good news is you won’t have to be jumpy about your Birmingham home security while on vacation if you implement the right security tools. With a smart home security system, you'll have the tools to be worry-free in your travels. That’s because your security systems give youcomplete command through a phone app and a 24/7 monitoring team at the ready.

The ADT Security App Makes It Feel Like You Are In The House

Imagine that a visitor comes up to your Birmingham house while you're a few states away, hanging out at your vacation resort. A smart phone notification tells you to drop into your doorbell camera video feed. It appears to be a delivery person, but to be safe, you thank him with the security app’s two-way talk feature. Then you hit the button that turns on the porch smart bulbs and assign a friend a smart lock PIN so they can move the package into the front hall for you.

A modern home security system should have a powerful smartphone app that lets you manage a lot of your home security and home automation components. The app should let you:

  • Get phone texts when a component senses unusual motion
  • Arm and disarm your security system
  • Make lock PIN codes and see the status of your doors
  • See live feeds of your Birmingham security cameras
  • Create schedules for your devices
  • Turn up and dim your smart lighting

Rely On Your 24/7 Monitoring Team When You’re Gone

A phone app is a modern necessity for Birmingham home security when you’re on vacation, but who's going to take care of contacting emergency responders when you’re not home? If you have a monitoring with your home security contract, you'll have trained experts at attention to respond to emergencies. When one of your door or window sensors are triggered, your monitoring pros will call both the police and you about the threat. Then they can act as a contact for you and the authorities until you can return.
