Have you felt the need to stay inside lately?
The weather is cold and the nights are long. It’s the time of year to retreat indoors
and enjoy the holidays where it’s warm and cozy. Whether you prefer to enjoy the
season quietly with a crackling fire and a good book, or to fill your home with
friends and loved ones, Smart Home Security will help you stay cozier through the
winter and all the way into spring.
When the sun sets early, it’s welcoming and reassuring to come home to a well-lit house. It feels safer too.
Smart lighting ensures a bright welcome without the energy waste of leaving your home lit up during the day. You can have Alarm.com turn your lights on at a given time, at sunset, or whenever you’re on your way home. For extra energy efficiency, you can even automate your holiday lights.
Door Lock Control
The holidays are a time to welcome guests, but you don’t have to do it with warm air billowing out of your front door. Instead, use your Alarm.com app to unlock your front door when guests arrive, having first verified who they are via your doorbell camera. Tell them to come on in and close the door, then take your time with the season’s greetings in the hallway, not on the doorstep.
Alarm.com-connected contact sensors have your back. Any door with a sensor can generate a smartphone alert when left open, enabling you to quickly fix any drafts. You can even set your smart thermostat to dial back automatically to reduce energy waste caused by open doors.
