Smart phone reinvented for a safer home
Summer is high season for traveling. Be it a tropical getaway or a family visit, here are 5 tips for keeping your home and yourself safe to get the most out of your R&R!
1. Ask Friends/Neighbors for Help
A full mailbox is a dead giveaway for thieves and burglars that nobody is home. Ask a friend or a neighbor to clear out on the content of your mailbox, suspend newspaper/magazine subscriptions if necessary to lower the risk.
2. Make Alfred Guard the House
Alfred doesn’t go on holiday, so he can keep your home safe when you are not around. Set Alfred up at the entrance of your house as well as inside. Turn on motion detection so you are always in the loop. Build a trust circle and share camera access with friends/family/neighbors so they are aware of the comings and goings near your house as well.
3. No Need to Broadcast Your Holiday Plans
Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram might be fun, but broadcasting your location while you are on holiday is not wise. If you must share your holiday moments as they happen, make sure you get your privacy settings right.
4. Hide the GPS
If you leave your car somewhere, make sure your GPS is nowhere visible. In the unfortunate case that someone steals your car, or simply breaking the window to steal your GPS, you don’t want the thief to know where you live!
5. Set Alfred Up Where You Stay
Whether you stay in a B&B, hotel, or even a youth hostel, Alfred makes sure any belongings you leave behind when you are out there exploring are safe. Several users shared this tip with us because Alfred helps them feel safer in their temporary home.
