Bringing smart home devices into your house certainly helps make your daily routine more convenient—but they also help make your home a lot safer, too. When you install smart home tech like smart locks, smart sensors, and smart cameras, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your home and your loved ones are always secure. Here’s how:  

Check on the status of your home at any moment 

Mornings almost always feel hectic, so it can be hard to remember later in the day if you really did close the garage door behind you or if you locked the front door on your way out. But when you equip your home with smart devices with Z-Wave technology, you can check on the status of your home at any given moment.  

Just use the companion app(s) on your smartphone or tablet to check in on what’s going on at home. Is your August Z-Wave Plus Smart Lock Pro + Connect secure? Is your Aeotec Z-Wave Plus Door/Window Sensor indicating that you left the bathroom window open? You can even use a smart camera, like the Nexia Outdoor Camera, to sneak a peek at your yard.  

Having a smarter home means you never have to worry about what’s going on at your home while you’re away.  

Secure your house from anywhere 

Not only does a smart home mean that you can check on the status of your home at any moment, but you can also take steps to secure your home, no matter where you are in the world.  

Did you actually forget to lock the front door? If you’re using the August Z-Wave Plus Smart Lock Pro + Connect, just use your August app to lock your door remotely. Are you going to be home later than you had expected? You can use your smartphone to arm your security system with one click, so you can be sure that your home will be secure at night, even when no one’s home.    

Safeguard your property from damage and theft 

Equipping your home with smart home devices with Z-Wave technology can also give you the peace of mind that your home is fortified against damage or theft.  

For example, a smart water sensor can send you alerts at the first sign of a leak, so you don’t come home to a big flood in your basement or bathroom—and a giant home insurance claim.  

Similarly, a smart CO sensor and smoke detector will send alerts directly to your smartphone whenever smoke is detected, so even if you’re not home you can take actions to call for help and protect your home from dangerous fire damage.  

And together, all of these devices in your smart home network—smart lockssmart cameras, and smart motion sensors—help safeguard your house from would-be intruders who want to burgle your home. Smart locks with anti-tampering technology secure your doors, and smart motion sensors and smart cameras give you eyes and ears to what’s going on around your home’s property, so you know your space is always secure.  

Adding smart home technology to your home is fun—but it’s smart too, because it helps you monitor and secure your home anytime and anywhere.
