ESA provides spring break travel tips

Keep the homestead safe while away


Before your vacation, get into the habit of arming your system each time you leave your home. Crime statistics show that homes with security systems are often successfully burglarized because the system was not armed at the time of the burglary.

Keep an eye on your home while you’re away. Smart home technology can be a useful tool for protecting your property while you travel. An enhanced security system complete with surveillance cameras gives you the power to see what’s going on in your home and receive activity alerts straight to your web-enabled device.


Smart home technology can also save you money on your heating bills while you’re away. And you won’t have to come home to a chilly house. With the press of a button, you can program your lights and air conditioning to turn on before you get home.


To create a smart home that works for your lifestyle, visit and find a SECURE+ integrator in your area. SECURE+ integrators are security companies committed to a higher standard of expertise within the enhanced home control and home automation market.
