Oktoberfest is a celebration of german heritage. And Hoosiers are always excited to join in the festivities in downtown Indy. But while you’re out with your friends and family, your house may be left unsecure.
Here’s how to secure you Indy home like a pro while at Oktoberfest:
Install Security Cameras
Security cameras keep an eye on your house while you’re away. If you don’t have any in place already, consider installing security cameras in the most vulnerable areas of your home. Typically, homeowners in Indy prefer to install one near the front door so that they can monitor package delivery and potential break ins. And we recommend placing a security camera near the backdoor or patio door since burglars assume it’s less guarded.
Set Up Home Automation
Wouldn’t it be nice to know that as soon as you stepped out of the house, all the interior lights are off, all the doors are locked, and the temperature is lowered? That’s what home automation can do for you. All you have to do is set up easy conditions in an app such as Total Connect and the rest takes care of itself, granted you have the Z wave enabled devices synced.
Not only that, but you can also get alerts when there’s a flood in the basement, a fire starting in the kitchen, or a glass break in the living room. These automatic alerts notify you of a potential threat to your family and your home.
Check In With Remote Services
Installing security cameras allows you to check in on your home while you’re out enjoying the fall festivities. And with an app like Honeywell’s Total Connect, you can access your security cameras through your smartphone. You can also remotely control the temperature, the lights, and the locks. This keeps you mind at ease that there are no break ins happening at your home while you’re at Oktoberfest.
Whether you’re heading out for Mass Ave, Broad Ripple, or downtown Carmel, you can rest assured that your Indy home is safe and secure against burglaries while you’re at Oktoberfest. Find out how you can make your home more secure by taking this quick assessment.
