Worrying if your home is safe and secure while you’re away can be very distracting and stressful. With home automation, you can put those worries to rest. Locks on windows and doors can be engaged via your smartphone, tablet, or computer, and you can even receive alerts when one is disengaged. You can watch live feeds from camera surveillance systems whether you’re five miles away or in another state. You can even keep an eye on things while you’re home, which can be very helpful if you have kids because you can watch the nursery or outdoor play areas.
