We know hosting a party can be as stressful as it is fun. There’s a lot of work to do, people to entertain, children to watch, and more. Learn how having a smart home can save the day and help you host the best summer party ever.

The Video Doorbell Helps You Greet Guests

You’re running around the house like a crazy person just trying to finish last-minute details and the doorbell rings. Instead of panicking, you simply take out your smartphone to verify who it is and let them in with the push of a button. Then you can go back to setting up the tables and food, and the early guest can help.

Light Up Your Yard with Automatic Lighting

Your home automation can show off when the sun goes down, and the outside lights automatically come on. You didn’t have to do a thing. Automatic lighting is also an excellent deterrent to burglars who like to hide in the dark.

Contact Sensors and Smartphone Alerts Can be Your Private Eye

While the adults tell stories and reminisce, the kids like to explore the house. However, you have your own investigator, so you know exactly where they’ve been. Place sensors in places that are off-limits like the man cave. The sensors will send you alerts when someone accesses those areas. You’ll be one step ahead of the kids with your very own private eye.

The Security System Can Set Itself

The guests have gone home, and you’re beat after cleaning up the party. All you want to do is go to bed, but you still have to lock up the house. Home automation allows you to lock up the house and set the alarm with scenes. Create one for your nighttime routine, and you can use the system command to arm your alarm and lock up the house. It can even set the thermostat back for the night.

Home automation provides convenience and streamlined solutions for everyday life. It’s also a pretty good party host and a favorite of many.

Summertime brings warm weather and with it, open doors and windows as well as empty houses with homeowners on vacation. Some cities in the U.S. report over a 20 percent increase in crime during the summer compared to other seasons. Make sure your home is secure this summer with these essential outdoor home security products.

1. Intelligent Lighting

Smart lighting connects with your security system. The intelligent security cameras or image sensors trigger it when they see or sense motion in your yard. Place lighting in the dark areas of your yard and that leaves burglars with no place to hide.

Advanced lighting technology even protects your home when you’re gone on vacation. Simply, set up a schedule for your smart lighting so that it turns the lights on every night, making it appear that someone is home.

2. Smart Security Cameras

Since you can’t be everywhere at once, intelligent cameras watch the places you can’t 24/7. They’re the untiring sentinels for your property. Typical security cameras alert you when they sense activity outside, but advanced technology now lets a new generation of security cameras detect whether it’s an animal, vehicle, or person.

You can even customize the alerts to notify you about all of the activity that you want to be made aware of. Customized alerts prevent you from being bombarded by the trivial events that don’t matter to you. The system can send you recorded and live footage of things going on outside as well as conveying the message that burglars aren’t welcome.

3. The Popular Doorbell Camera

One of the most popular security products on the market is the doorbell camera. It allows you to see who’s at the door or lingering around your property even when you’re not home. Video alerts are triggered by motion in the area of the doorbell. The two-way video and voice functions allow you to speak to both welcome and unwelcome visitors.

With smart locks, you can use your phone app to open the door for visitors once you’ve verified them even when you’re nowhere near the door. If you’re expecting a delivery while you’re out, you can speak to the delivery person and tell them where to put the package so that it’s safe until you return home.

These are just three security elements that will protect your home and family, whether you’re home or not. A complete smart home security system with automation is like having your own security team to help protect your property.

Every man dreams of creating their very own man cave, and when that dream comes true, he constantly wants to improve it. A man cave is never truly finished, but what is the one improvement that provides the most entertainment and efficiency? The answer my friends is intelligent home automation.

Using Smart Home Automation to Impress Your Friends

There are many fun features of home automation, but remote-controlled entry will impress your friends and allow you to never miss important sports’ plays ever again. The new video doorbell for your front door lets you know when your takeout food arrives, and you can even unlock it to let your friends in. They’ll be quite surprised to see you never left the couch when they walk in. If it’s someone at the door you don’t want to see like a salesman, send them away using the smartphone app.

Automate Your Lighting

Using a smart plug, you can automate all the lamps and lights in your man cave. They’ll activate with automation triggers such as opening the door to the man cave or voice control by saying a phrase like, “turn lights on.” There’s no more getting up and down to switch a lamp on or off.

Control Everything with a Single Button

Use the customized scenes to show off your smart home technology. Scenes are simple to customize using the app. You can use any combination of devices connected to the intelligent technology such as smart shades and lighting to create the perfect Game Day environment. You can even include a customized thermostat setting to the scene by adding a remote temperature sensor that communicates with the house’s main thermostat.

Security for the Refrigerator in Your Man Cave

The contents of your kitchen’s refrigerator may be open to all, but the contents of the fridge in your man cave are sacred. You can place a contact sensor on the refrigerator door that no one will notice. When someone opens the door, you’ll receive a customizable alert on your smartphone that tells you when it was opened.

You’ll be the envy of all your friends if you kick your man cave up a notch with smart home automation. This technology will make you more efficient with its simple-to-use features. Game Day will never be the same again.

Modern family dynamics often include a father that travels for work. Mothers are busy too so they can only fill the shoes of both parents to a certain extent. A smart home security system is just what the busy contemporary family needs for home security when on vacation.

Smart Home Security Systems are Proactive

Every father will tell you that having a child changes you. Science has proven this assumption with studies of the changes in neural plasticity in new fathers. The safety of your family is a priority for you, and the modern home security system can help you be proactive in protecting your family.

The intelligent security system uses motion-activated doorbell cameras, smart smoke detectors, and contact sensors connected to the security system to detect possible problems quickly. This allows your family to react swiftly to emergencies when they arise. The system sends you alerts when it detects trouble such as an unlocked door or motion at the front door. You’ll always know what’s going on at home with these alerts.

Perform the Last Security Check for the Night No Matter Where You Are

We all know that kids and significant others forget to set the alarm at night occasionally because it’s your job when you’re home. With the smartphone app, you can check the status of the garage doors, windows, exterior doors, and the security system. If anything’s amiss you can fix it through the app. If someone forgot to turn the alarm on, once everyone is asleep, arm the system, and you can relax knowing your home and family are secure.

Enforce House Rules When You’re Away

Ever wonder what happens to house rules when your not there to enforce them? There’s a solution for that as well. Give each of your children a unique code for the door, and you’ll always know if they miss curfew. The security app on your phone will alert you when your kids use their code. There’s also an option to turn the alerts off if you don’t need to monitor anyone.

Perhaps there are areas in your house that are off-limits to the kids. Installing contact sensors lets you receive alerts immediately when someone oversteps their bounds.

Intelligent home security systems are the comprehensive solution to protect your family and home when you’re gone. There’s no need to worry anymore when you have to travel out of town.
