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

Arranging a getaway is hard enough with hotels, transportation, and events. You shouldn't need to spend time thinking if your house will be protected when you're gone. 

But, if you use the right tools, you won’t need to think about about your McAllen home security while on vacation. With a smart home security system, you'll have the tools to travel with confidence. That’s because you’ll havefull control through a phone app and your 24/7 monitoring team watching over your home.

The Mobile Security App Can Make It Feel Like You Are Home

Picture that a person is approaching your McAllen house while you'rehundreds of miles away, hanging out at your beachside resort. A mobile text asks you to look at your doorbell camera video feed. It appears to be a delivery person, but to be safe, you thank him using the security app’s two-way talk feature. Then you turn on the porch smart bulbs and give your neighbor a temporary smart lock PIN so they can move the delivery into the garage for you.

A state-of-the-art home security system should have a easy-to-use phone app that lets you manage almost all home security and smart home equipment. The app should let you:

  • Receive phone notifications when a alarm and camera senses unusual movement
  • Arm and disarm your security sensors
  • Make lock codes and confirm the status of your smart locks
  • Get live feeds of your McAllen smart security cameras
  • Set rules for your smart components
  • Turn down and off your smart bulbs

Rely On 24/7 Monitoring When You’re Gone

A phone app is a modern marvel for McAllen home security when you’re on vacation, but who's going to be in charge of getting emergency services when you’re gone? When you have a 24/7 monitoring with your home security contract, you'll have knowledgeable pros at attention in case of an emergency. After one of your door or window sensors are triggered, your monitoring agents will contact both emergency responders and you about the problem. Then ADT can act as a contact between you and the authorities until you get back home.
