As the summer draws to a close and the cooler months set in, it’s time for vacation home owners to begin locking up for another year. It’s natural to feel a little uneasy about leaving your property unsupervised for extended periods of time, but with smart home plus security from Iris, it needn’t be a cause for concern.
See how our suite of products can help make life a little easier when it comes to managing a second home.
Certain Iris-compatible locks can be used with a pin code for keyless entry. Assign different codes for different guests and then disable them once their visit is over. This is a great use for allowing entry to any maintenance personnel or rental guests without having to meet in person or putting your home at risk by leaving a key under the mat.
Ensure you didn’t leave the A/C running by checking in and managing your thermostat, right from your smartphone. Save money by monitoring your consumption and keep an eye on the temperature of your home to avoid emergencies such as frozen pipes through the winter months.
While staying in your vacation home, Smart Plugs can be used to control and schedule your devices, such as brewing your coffee from the comfort of your bed. When it’s time to lock up at the end of the season, you can also enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing no appliances or devices were left on.
Place contact sensors on windows, doors and even your refrigerator. Then check in on your home, anytime and from anywhere to see if any doors or windows have been opened in your absence.
If you live a long way from your vacation home, or are unable to get there in an emergency, Professional Monitoring from Iris is the perfect way to keep your home safe and secure all year round. Our dispatch center is accredited CSAA Five-Diamond, UL certified, and at only $14.95 it’s the best value among smart home security providers. Learn more at irisbylowes.com/monitoring.
