New Years celebrations have come and gone, and we have now been greeted by 2015. While all of the holidays are over, that doesn’t mean that Americans are done taking a break. Depending on where you live in the country, January is a good month to get way from the cold weather and into a more warmer climate. Perhaps it’s a trip to the beach or even across the ocean, but one way or another, you might be planning a long getaway far from your home.
If this is the case, you’ll really want to put some thought into the status of your home security. With that, you’ll want to think about how well you’ve planned out having your neighbors or friends house-sit or take care of your pets. If you’ve been leaving your key under your front-door mat to let your trusted friend or neighbor in, you might want to reconsider such a precarious action.
Forget the key. Get home automation through ADT.
When you leave a key for someone to enter your home, there’s really no way for you to know where it is at any given time. People lose things, and when your trusted friend accidentally misplaces your key, then what are you supposed to do? Even worse is someone else getting the key before your friend gets to it, which could be anyone’s worst nightmare.
Instead of working around these difficult logistics, it may be necessary for you to consider home automation through ADT Pulse. This is made possible through the Home Control option that comes with select versions of ADT Pulse. With Home Control, you’ll have automated door locks which can be operated from anywhere you happen to be. It is a much safer and reliable form of door locking/unlocking than leaving that key somewhere around your home. When you think about basic security, home control just makes more sense.
How to get home automation through ADT Pulse
Recently, ADT has changed the way that Pulse can be ordered. Instead of just uniform package, Pulse is delivered in three potential formats. If you want Home Control features with Pulse, you can choose Pulse with Home Control as the basic offering. If you want to step it up with Video Control, you can have Pulse with both Home Control AND Video control.
In basic terms, what does Home Control do?
The Door Locks that come with your ADT Pulse package will allow you to lock and unlock your front door through your Internet-connected device. This is a much more reliable form of keeping your doors locked rather than leaving a key. ADT will even provide you with different lock finishes for your door so you can decide which one is the best fit for you.
When it comes to a more safe way of letting others in that you trust, having Home Control through ADT is the way to go. Think of it has always having the key in your possession, capable of locking and unlocking from no matter where you happen to be.
