Speak to visitors at your front door
The last thing you want to do when relaxing on the beach is deal with a person waiting at your door back home. But a smart home with an integrated video doorbell will give you that capability. You can observe and speak to them through the bi-directional audio feature. If a package is left at your door, you’ll have proof and can ask a friend or neighbor to pick it up or place it inside your house.
Having a proper backup is vital
You should have a backup set up even when you’re at home, but it’s more critical when you’re out of town. Backing up your system with round-the-clock monitoring is a smart way to make sure urgent events at your home are handled right away. You should also let a trusted neighbor know you’re going away. Not only can they get your mail and take care of your animals, but they can keep an eye on suspicious behavior.
