Continuing my series on how technology can actually enhance your vacation, I’ll show you how to monitor what’s going on at home while you’re thousands of miles away so accurately that you’ll know if something as minor as a garage door spring moves. The newest technological advancements make it easier than ever to stay connected at all times, whether it’s with texting, calling, a phone spy app, or remote video surveillance. It’s time to consider how some of these tools can make your vacation truly worry-free.
Home Security Camera
Many new home security cameras allow you to connect to them via your computer or smartphone. So, no matter where you are, you can check up on your home, family, pets, and even plants. You’ll never have to wake up in the middle of the night again, wondering how your loved ones are doing while you’re away. Instead, you’ll have instant peace of mind, allowing you to continue enjoying your vacation without any unnecessary stress.
Phone Spy App
When you’re away from your kids, no matter how short or long the duration is, it’s only natural to worry about them. One of the best ways to keep track of what they’re doing and making sure they’re not getting into any trouble is with a phone spy app. This type of program will keep track of what your child does on their phone, allowing you to read their texts and follow their GPS location. You’ll be able to quickly see that they’re safe and sound.
Smart Home Technology
Did you forget to turn off the thermostat? What about locking the front door? In the rush of leaving for vacation, it can be easy to neglect something that may raise your energy bill, or worse, leave your house unsecured. With a smart home automation system connected to your smartphone, you can control the lighting, temperature, locks, and much more from another state or even continent. Not only will this keep your home safe and comfortable, but you’ll also give any on-lookers the impression that you’re still home.
