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

You have enough to think about when planning a trip. You have an endless list of chores like hotel reservations, flight tickets, and event tickets. You shouldn't have to spend time thinking if your home will be protected now that it’s vacant. 

The good news is you won’t have to be concerned about your Portland home security while on vacation if you implement the right tools. Through a smart home security system, you'll have the safety to be worry-free in your travels. That’s because you’ll havefull control through a smart phone app and a 24/7 monitoring team on your side.

The Mobile Security App Makes It Appear Like You Are At Home

Imagine that someone is approaching your Portland house while you're a few states away, enjoying a pina colada at your beachside resort. A smart phone alert tells you to drop into your doorbell camera video feed. It appears to be a postal worker, but to be sure, you thank her through the security app’s two-way talk feature. Then you turn on the porch smart light or assign your neighbor a one-time-use smart lock PIN so they can move the delivery into the kitchen for you.

A complete home security system should use a powerful smartphone app that allows you to control almost all safety and automation devices. The app can let you:

  • Receive phone notifications when a component detects unusual activity
  • Arm and disarm your security devices
  • Create lock PIN codes and confirm the status of your smart locks
  • See live feeds of your Portland security cameras
  • Set activation schedules for your alarms and cameras
  • Turn down and dim your smart bulbs

Lean On 24/7 Monitoring When You Leave

A phone app is a modern marvel for Portland home security when you’re on vacation, but who's going to handle getting a hold of emergency help when you’re away? When you have a monitoring team in your home security plan, you'll have trained experts at the wheel in case of an emergency. After one of your door or window sensors are tripped, the monitoring pros will call both the police and you about the problem. Then ADT can act as a contact for the authorities and you until you are back.
