How To Be Confident In Your Grand Rapids Home Security While On Vacation

When you’re on vacation, you should be enjoying the rest and relaxation. You shouldn't need to wonder if your property will be guarded when you're gone. 

Luckily, a state-of-the-art Grand Rapids security system can allow you to have a restful vacation. Through a smart home security system, you'll have the safety to enjoy your trip. That’s because your security systems give youcomplete control with your phone app and a team of security professionals on your side.

The Mobile Security App Can Make It Feel Like You Are In The House

Picture that a person is approaching your Grand Rapids house while you'rehundreds of miles away, hanging out at your vacation resort. A smart phone text tells you to look at your doorbell camera video feed. It appears to be a delivery person, but to be on the safe side, you thank her using the security app’s two-way talk feature. Then you hit the button that turns on the hallway smart bulbs or assign a friend a temporary smart lock PIN code so they can put the package into the front hall for you.

A complete home security system should come with a robust phone app that allows you to manage most home security and automation devices. The app can let you:

  • Receive phone notifications when a device detects unusual movement
  • Arm and disarm your security sensors
