Speak to people at your door
The last thing you want to do when relaxing on the beach is deal with a visitor standing at your front door back home. But a modern security system with a full-featured doorbell camera will provide that opportunity. You can view and talk to them by using the 2-way audio feature. If a box is left at your door, you’ll have visual evidence and can ask a neighbor to grab it for you or put it inside your home.
Having the right backup is crucial
You should have a backup set up even when you’re at home, but it’s more essential when you’re away. Backing your system up with round-the-clock monitoring is a smart way to help ensure any emergency at your property is dealt with immediately. You’ll also want to let a reliable neighbor know you’re departing. Not only can they grab your mail and tend to your animals, but they can inform you of any suspect behavior.
