3 Weirdly Common Reasons to Get a Home Security System
We all know how important a home security system is. However, we don’t always realize how much flexibility is built into having the right home security system. Here are three weirdly common scenarios that justify tailoring your home security system to your lifestyle.
The babysitter predicament
Imagine, your babysitter is at the house, and she steps outside to collect a package. The door slams shut while she’s on the steps and it was set to lock automatically. Now, your babysitter is locked outside with no way to contact you – her phone is in the house – and your baby is alone.
She doesn’t have a physical key because you want to manage who can access your home.
Now, imagine if your sitter had an access code to unlock the door and go back inside. A code that only she has, one that you can track to see when she uses it. That’s one of the many situations that a home security system with individualized access codes can rectify.
The pet sitter dilemma
Or, your pet sitter is running late, and you have to leave. You know that if the pets don’t go out, you’ll come home to a huge mess of a house. But you have to weigh that against being late for your appointment.
Now imagine being able to let the sitter inside – remotely – once she gets to the house no matter where you are. Isn’t that a convenient and more practical use of your time?
That’s just one of the benefits of having a home security system that caters to multiple access and remote control.
The vacation limitation
What if you’re on vacation and someone rings your doorbell. No one’s there to answer. They become aware of the fact that no one’s home and proceed to break-in. You come back happy from your vacation to a robbed house, and no leads to give to the cops.
Now, imagine that you can look to see who is at the door. You realize that it’s no one you know and that they seem to be scoping out your house to see if anyone’s home. After all, a lot of robberies take place during the daytime. You answer them through your doorbell, and they immediately find an excuse and leave.
