Home security monitoring systems

Home security has vastly improved over the past ten years.  So much so that we are never really “away” from our homes.  With the right security monitoring system in the home, traveling can be absolutely worry free.

Not only does a home surveillance system allow homeowners to check in on their homes from anywhere in the world, but it also comes equipped with the ability to record.  Sensors in the home will detect any movement and immediately begin recording and streaming the video information to a designated mobile device.

Home communication systems

Home communication systems allow homeowners to be in two places at once.  This type of device offers the ability to visually engage with people inside the home from a chosen mobile device.  Whether there is a need to speak to the babysitter or hired hands while on vacation, a home communication system will get the job done.

These systems can also be used as an internal intercom.  If little Billy is taking too long to get himself upstairs, an intercom provides the ability to prompt him without even being inside the home.  Mom or Dad can enforce routine even while being away.

Our pets cannot always go with us on vacation, and they are almost always banned from the workplace.  Technology has given pet owners more freedom to travel while Fido is safe at home.  This is not some high-tech excuse to be a lazy or careless pet owner, but it is to help busy adults delegate time and task with a higher efficiency.  The company Petzi makes a “treat cam” that allows owners to check in on their animals and offer them a treat.  It adds comfort for the pet and their family.


There are also several affordable options for automatic feeders and water fountains.  This way, pet owners can be gone for a couple of days and their animals will not go hungry.  Travel with the knowledge that everything at home is safe and sound.
