How To Be Confident In Your Virginia Beach Home Security While On Vacation

You have enough to think about when getting ready for a vacation. You have an endless list of tasks like finding a place to stay, transportation tickets, and meal planning. You shouldn't need to worry if your home will be safe when nobody’s there. 

The good news is you don't have to be worried about your Virginia Beach home security while on vacation if you have the best tools. By using a smart home security system, you'll have the tools to be self-assured during your stay. And that starts with havingcomplete control through a mobile app and a 24/7 monitoring team watching over your home.

The Right Security App Makes It Look Like You Are In The House

Imagine that someone approaches your Virginia Beach house while you're a few states away, hanging out at your vacation resort. A phone text lets you look at your doorbell camera video feed. It might be a postal worker, but to be on the safe side, you thank them with the security app’s two-way talk feature. Then you hit the button that turns on the front porch light or give a friend a one-time-use smart lock code so they can place the package into the garage for you.

A complete home security system should have a easy-to-use mobile app that allows you to command almost all security and automation components. The app can let you:

  • Get phone alerts when a device senses unusual activity
  • Disarm and arm your security system
  • Make lock PINs and confirm the status of your locks
  • See live feeds of your Virginia Beach home security cameras
  • Set schedules for your alarms and cameras
  • Turn up and turn off your smart lights

Lean On 24/7 Monitoring When You Leave

A phone app is a modern must for Virginia Beach home security when you’re on vacation, but how are you going to take care of contacting emergency responders when you’re gone? If you have a 24/7 monitoring professional in your home security package, you'll have knowledgeable professionals at the wheel in case of an emergency. If one of your door or window sensors are triggered, your monitoring agents will get a hold of both the police and you about the threat. Then the team can act as a contact between you and the authorities until you are back.
