My wife and I have two homes, and both of us divide our time between them! Our goal is to avoid the worst and care about the best weather of each locationâ€¦ We consistently head south sometime while in September, and both of us travel back north again in the middle of May! It is a bit hard taking care of two properties, then every time both of us switch locations, there is a lot of work required. One of the biggest issues is security. We worry about leaving a beach home vacant for so multiple months, although both of us try to make quick trips north or south while in the six-month span, it would be too easy for someone to split in. There is also the worry over natural disasters. A tree branch could fall, pipes could freeze, or a window could get bokent. We finally solved this issue by installing a security method into each home. Because the systems are both wireless, they integrated without any disruption or damage, and both of us can easily make replaces as new versions and improvements become available. I like that both of us can access the multiple features by way of an app on our smartphones. At any time, from anywhere, I can check out real time video from surveillance cameras. I can clearly see all different angles of the property, including the front and back doors. If anyone should approach the house, the lights are motion-activated and my wife and I acquire alerts on our cellphone. There is an alarm that sounds when the door opens and sensors on all of the windows. We are able to lock and unlock the doors through our cellphones and even converse with someone sitting on our front step.
