Let’s face it; you can’t stay in your home 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Even if you work from home, you will still need to go out places occasionally. There is always a nagging worry in the back of people’s minds about their homes. Or, more to the point, the safety and security of them while there is nobody inside of them.
You might think the only risk to your home is that of burglars trying to break into it. The truth is, your home could be at risk for a variety of reasons. If you want some assurances and peace of mind while you’re not at home, help is at hand. Here’s how you can ensure your home is safe and secure when you are out and about:
Give a set of keys to someone you trust
When you’re not at home for long periods, you need to make sure your home stays intact while you’re away. One simple thing you could do is give a set of keys to a person you trust. Examples include friends, family members, and neighbors. If they suspect anything strange is going on, they can enter your home to check on your behalf.
Install a carbon dioxide monitor
Worried about gas leaks in your home? The thing about gas is you can’t see it or, in some cases, smell it. A carbon dioxide monitor can remotely alert you to any gas leaks in your home.
Fit a smoke detector
You can also buy and install “smart” smoke detectors to alert you of any smoke or fires at home. Assuming someone you trust has a set of keys, they can help to extinguish any flames before they get worse.
Get a smart alarm system installed
Last, but not least, an Internet-accessible alarm system will keep your home secure. They will remotely alert you if any door or window sensors got triggered in your absence.
