Will you secure your home during summer vacation? Every summer, millions of us head out on our much needed summer vacation.
According to a recent summer travel study done by Piper, about 40% of us will be heading to the beach! I don’t know about you, but when I’ve got my feet in the sand, the last thing I want to worry about is whether my home is secure. I want to know it is!
The majority of people say they lock the doors and windows to secure their home and 45% never check in again. But, 40% said that if they could, they would want to see their home remotely. We always ask neighbors to stay and watch our home, but I want to check in to be sure that everything is ok. If I can ease my mind each day, then I don’t worry.
Why Should You Secure Your Home During Summer Vacation?
When you are away for an extended period of time, your house is vulnerable to break-ins, robberies, vandalism and more. A light may not stop someone who is determined to get into your house to steal your valuables.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if you were alerted if someone came into the house and then you could check to see who it was and what they were doing? You could notify the authorities if that person is not supposed to be there. I know I’d prefer that over coming home to a house with all my valuables gone.
With the technology available today, you can check on your house remotely.
Piper Home Security & Automation
Piper offers a “no monthly fee” home security and automation answer. You can secure your home, get alerts when doors or windows opened, turn on and off lights and appliances, talk to someone in your home, hear what is going on in room, zoom in and out to see better, see an entire room in HD and sound a siren all from your mobile phone.
It is small and won’t take up a lot of room. I received the Piper nv (nv stands for night vision), door/windows sensor and a smart switch. I will be testing these out in the next 2 weeks and then I will give my full review along with a giveaway so you can secure your home during summer vacation too.
