If you think back even a few short years, doors were pretty simple. They couldn’t really do anything fancy. They looked nice, kept people out of your home but that’s about it. These days, technology has taken the world by storm and even something as seemingly simple as a front door can do many things that we never dreamed could be true. It’s as though we are living in a futuristic movie some of the times.
We are pretty excited about these recent changes so we thought we would let you in on a few of our favorite things these days. As always, be sure to let us know about what kinds of things you use at home and how they have worked for you. We are always interested in what you like the most and why and learn just as much from you as you probably learn from us.
Lock and Unlock From Anywhere
It has become easier than ever to control when someone is able to enter your home. These days, there are many security systems that you can literally control from anywhere. It doesn’t matter if you are at work, the store or states away; you always have the option to lock your home or unlock it as necessary. Let’s say you have a pet sitter stopping by and you don’t want them to have your code; just have them call you and you can let them in and then lock the doors when they leave. You’ll never have to wonder what’s going on because you can check up on your house from anywhere. This is going to give you peace of mind knowing your possessions are safe.
Get Updated When Someone Enters Your House
You can actually give each person who enters your home a separate access code to your home. This way, you will never have to wonder who is there. You can choose to be sent a notification via text message or even email so you’ll never have to wonder who’s currently in your home. Someone there that shouldn’t be? You’ll be the very first to know.
Change Your Access Codes Instantly, Anytime
Having an issue with someone entering your home? Want to remove their access code so they can’t get inside unless you are home? You don’t even need to be at your house to do so. You can update codes directly from your cell phone. This way, you can go about your day and not have to go out of your way to keep your home protected.
With so many systems these days, you barely have to lift a finger. It has become easier than ever to make sure that your family is safe. This is especially nice if you have children who arrive home before you do. You’ll always know when they make it safely inside and you can check to make sure the locks are activated so you never have to worry about them.
