Whether it’s an afternoon party, overnight or extended stays, having house guests can be both exciting and a little stressful. No matter if it’s family or reconnecting with old friends, you want to create a welcoming atmosphere, but you also want your home security to continue uninterrupted. Luckily, this is easy to achieve. Here are some ways that homeowners can introduce home security to their house guests.
Extended Stays: Consider Giving Them An Entry Code.
Does your system include smart locks for keyless entry? If so, you can make your extended stay guests feel more welcome by giving them easier access to the house. Although you can lock and unlock the smart lock doors from your home security app, consider giving them their own entry code. This is especially helpful if they will be coming and going from the house frequently. Of course, you can deactivate the code at the end of their stay.
Despite the popularity of home security cameras, some house guests may be anxious about being “watched.” If your guests have expressed those sentiments, then giving them a peek at the cameras can help them feel more welcome during their stay. Start by showing them the settings on your home security app. When your guests see how easily the Geo-Services technology can prevent the internal cameras from recording when people are home, they are sure to feel more comfortable.
Show Off Your Smart Home
Let’s be honest: Smart home technology is great for home security, but it can also be a lot of fun. If your guests will be arriving home before you in the evening, let them know which indoor lights will be coming on at 5 PM. You can also explain how the Insights Engine works – that it memorizes your everyday household patterns, and lets you know when something out of the ordinary is going on. Show them the Unusual Activity notifications when you receive them, and how you can engineer the Insights Engine yourself with your “useful/not useful” feedback. They’re bound to be impressed.
These are some of the ways you can easily co-mingle your home security and your overnight guests. To learn how any of these features work with your home security, Southern California homeowners can contact Post Alarm Systems. We will be glad to answer your questions.
