One of the most stressful parts of travel is worrying about what’s going on back home. Is your house secure? Are packages piling up outside your front door? Is it obvious everyone’s gone?
Thanks to ever-improving technology, it’s easy to keep an eye on all of that, no matter where you are.
With holiday travel coming up, here are three simple but effective products that will help protect your home and let you relax while you’re away.
This bestselling device is a game-changer that has been proven to reduce crime. Just install the doorbell, download the app and use your smartphone to see who’s at your door and when packages are delivered. Set your notification preferences and you can even answer your doorbell from almost anywhere in the world, including on a cruise ship.
For a few dollars a month, all your video will be archived so you can go back in the history and check activity at any time. If there’s a problem, you’ll have a video record.
Thanks to this smart combination, you will never again have to worry that you forgot to close your garage door. Using your app, you can quickly check, giving you immediate peace of mind. If you did leave it open, you can close it from wherever you are, no problem.
An Amazon #1 Best Seller, the system has almost 60,000 five star ratings praising its effectiveness and ease of use. Homeowners especially like the fact that you can receive real-time notifications of any garage door activity and that you can use it for Amazon Key In-Garage Deliver to avoid the possibility of porch pirates.
You’ll want to install one of these multitaskers on every side of your home. Not only does it emit powerful lights when it detects motion from a person, animal or car — a deterrent to intruders in itself — but it captures everything on video for you to see anywhere. And you can set notifications on the app for any motion detection or to program the lights or activate the siren.
The wide angle lens provides greater coverage, making it a good option for large, outdoor spaces, and the infrared night vision — which allows the camera to see up to 50 feet in the dark — means it can work 24/7.
