The ice is thawing, the snow is melting, and the smell of spring is in the air. Freezing temperatures are creeping up ever so slowly toward tolerability. Now that the sun isn’t going down so early and the weather outside isn’t cold enough to make you wonder why you aren’t living in the Caribbean, you probably want to get out and enjoy the season for the first time this year.
Regardless of how great the weather is or how much fun you’re having, there’s always the lingering worries in the back of your mind about your home. It’s natural. Did I lock the back door? Did I leave the oven on? Are my pets OK? Is someone breaking in while I’m away?
Even though break ins are relatively rare, there have been plenty of cases in the news recently of thieves breaking into houses after discovering the family was away via their social media feed. It’s the reality of the world we live in. Thankfully, Fluent Home Edmonton can be the key to having a stress-free spring break. Here’s how you can free up some extra mental space and fill it up with fun instead of fuss!
Complete home control and peace of mind
The old “did I leave the oven on” cliche exists for a reason: we always worry about whether or not we’ve secured our homes when we leave them. It’s how our minds work. Locking the back door, switching off appliances, turning off the lights, AC, and TV, it all swirls around in our heads and not knowing the answer can drive us crazy.
With complete home control, you don’t ever need to be left in the dark again (unless you want to turn off all of the lights from your app, which, by the way, is possible with Fluent Home!). When you’ve turned your house into a smart home, you can:
-Check your app to see the status of your appliances and lights
-Control your thermostat
-Set reminders to see if you forgot something
-Be aware of your energy usage at all times
So instead of wracking your brain the whole weekend about whether or not you shut the garage door or took that frozen pizza out of the oven, you can know for sure.
24/7 protection
Crime in Canada is relatively rare. We don’t want you to think that just because you’re away from home that you’ll be the victim of a break-in. However, crime is a reality of the world we live in. There have been plenty of instances where families have come home from vacation to a house much emptier than they remember. Worrying about the safety of your home and belongings is one of the biggest stress factors on vacation. You can put an end to it with home automation and smart security.
We can help take the stress of your spring break away by giving you access to 24/7 security services. Our eyes will always be on your house while you’re on vacation. If something goes wrong, the police will be notified immediately. You’ll even be able to monitor the home yourself from the app. If there’s any unusual movement, you’ll be alerted immediately.
Check in on your pets
We doubt that your pets are going to throw a wild party while you’re gone (if they do, that would be awesome!), but it’s still a good idea to check in on them once in awhile. If you’ve got a neighbor to keep an eye on them, then that’s great, but nothing compares to being able to spy on them 24/7. Chances are they’ll be napping in that same spot right in the middle of the floor, sleeping on the windowsill, or waiting patiently by the door for you to come home, but it’s still calming to know they’re OK. You can even coordinate with your pet sitter via the app!
Heading out of town this spring to enjoy the great outdoors? That’s a great idea! Edmonton and the surrounding area have some of the most beautiful natural parks in the world. If you want to enjoy them stress free, then smart home automation from Fluent Home can help ease your worries and let you enjoy the holiday.
