t’s that time of year when your favorite overnight guests may be coming to town. You want the environment to feel welcoming and safe for these loved ones, but you also want to impress them with all the great security technology you have in your home. Fortunately, you can do both with your smart home security system. Here’s how.
Give them their own user code.
When you give your house guests a unique user code for the keyless entry at the front door, your guests can come and go freely – and no one has to worry about accidentally triggering the alarm. This spares them potentially embarrassment, and saves you any potential hassle. Plus, they can go out at night without you staying up to let them in. It’s easy and impressive. And when the visit is over, just deactivate their user code; it can stay inactive until the next time they visit.
Keep the guest room cozy.
Everyone loves to look at a winter wonderland through the window while they sit inside the warmth of a house – the operative word being “warmth.” If you are unsure whether your guest room is warm enough for your friends, you can use one of the most exciting tools your smart home system has to offer: the remote temperature sensor.
When this sensor is placed in the guest room, it can adjust the thermostat based on the average temperature in the rest of the home. It’s the perfect way to find out if your guest room is your house’s “cold room” – and, it takes care of that problem so guests can enjoy their stay more.
Show them how the cameras work.
Although home security cameras are popular, there are still some “holdout” guests who may be concerned their every move is being watched. You know that’s not true, so show them how the cameras really work. Open up your home security app settings, and show them how the Geo-Services technology can prevent the indoor cameras from recording when people are home. They’ll breathe a sigh of relief, and you can let your cameras continue to do their job.
