Hard rains, snow storms, wind gusts, power outages…the weather phenomenons of winter and their impact on our communities are more than an inconvenience. In many cases, these things can be very dangerous. And even in this season of transition from summer to fall, power outages can still occur during heat waves. All things considered, weather risks are present all year round. What if your household has members who are especially sensitive to weather changes, like infants or elderly loved ones? You need to know ahead of time in order to get everyone to a safer, more comfortable place. And since undergoing a temporary relocation is no small decision, you need to know as quickly as possible.
Here’s How We Can Help
Fortunately, we have something that can help: smart home alarm systems. Homeowners who choose to protect their homes with these advanced security systems have access to real-time weather alerts from the most reliable source possible, the National Weather Service. When the situation is a power outage, our customers have access to an interactive map that shows how widespread the outage is. It all starts with an alert to the customer’s smartphone, so it’s easy to check out quickly.
Immediate Action for Informed Decisions
As soon as we receive National Weather Service information regarding the inclement weather alert, we send a signal to the security systems of homes that are at risk. Our customers know about the weather as soon as we do, so families can make quick, informed decisions regarding how to proceed. If you happen to be away from home, you can ask someone to check on your pets, turn off your power, or secure your home in some other way. Whatever other fortification may be appropriate, you’ll be able to make a decision about it.
Other Ways of Protecting the Home
Smart home security systems are designed for more than safety. To help homeowners spare their property from the expensive results of flood damage due to burst pipes in the winter – or, when leaky roofs cause flooding on the floor – smart home security systems feature flood detection and low temperature threshold alerts. When you receive an alert for these conditions, you can do what you need to stop the situation before it gets out of control.
