How Smart Technology Can Keep Your Home Safe While You Travel

by Cathy Carr

Vacations are supposed to be peaceful times of tranquility, not stressful situations where you worry about things like the impending doom of the human race or the safety and security of your smart tech and smart home.

The good news? You can say goodbye to worry. Worry no more. Pick up a giant can of “Worry Be Gone” from the grocery store on the way home. With some savvy smart home upgrades, you can forget about travel-induced worry and instead focus your whole mind on soaking up as many rays on the beach as you can before your vacation is over.


Caught on Camera

When it comes to home safety, security cameras are your first line of defense and are the pawns in the eternal chess game of keeping your castle secure, even when you aren’t around. Typical security cameras can only do so much, but we aren’t here to talk about typical cameras: We’re here to talk about Ring’s smart security cameras.

Let’s take the Vacation Safety Simulator 3500 out for a spin and look at just how Ring’s security cameras can help you. Imagine you are on the beach, watching your kids play in the waves while you are applying suntan lotion for the hundredth time. It’s the perfect moment for crime to strike!

But, fear not. Back at your house, if someone tries to break in, your detect motion lights turn on, alerting your neighbors -- who of course know you are gone on vacation – that something is up. An alert goes off on your phone, giving you notice. You can then pull up a live view of the cameras -- yes, even from the beach! – on your phone and see, hear, and talk directly to the troublemakers. Hey you! I see you! Get off my lawn!

Smart safety, even during a beach vacation. It sure has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
