For all your real estate needs

(NC) The holiday season is finally here and most of us are off to enjoy quality time visiting family and friends, getting away on sunny vacations or hitting the slopes. Whether you're enjoying the beaches or snowboarding down your favourite mountain, you'll want to make sure that your home is protected while you're away.

With the latest home security systems from providers such as Reliance Protectron, they're helping you rest assured that your home is protected while you are out enjoying yourself this season. “Our interactive services give you protection that goes far beyond the role of a traditional home security system,” explained Patrice De Luca, V.P. of Marketing and Customer Care for Reliance Protectron Security Services. Here are the latest options available to help monitor and protect your home:  

 

Interactive Video Surveillance

You can set up video surveillance around your property and in your home that seamlessly sleeves into your existing system. You can subscribe to interactive video surveillance to record activity at preset times or begin recording when motion is detected. Only you can monitor what's happening in your house through your webcams, as monitoring centres cannot access your cameras.  

 

Interactive Door Locks

If you have guests that will be housesitting or getting your mail for you while you are away, there is no need to give them a key. You can give them a passcode to get in which you can change or delete immediately after your vacation is over. You can also lock and unlock your door remotely to allow a guest to enter for example.

 

Interactive Thermostat

You no longer have to worry about if you left the heat on too high before you left the house. You can simply check the status of your thermostat through your computer or your smartphone and control the temperature from a distance. As an added bonus, you can turn up the heat just before you get back if you are returning home on a particularly cold day.

 

Remote Control Lighting and Appliances

You can also control appliances and your lighting remotely using the same interactive technology, so you can make sure appliances are shut off and make it look like someone is home by switching lights on and off in the evening. You can even program your system to perform several tasks at once. When arming your system, for example, you can also set it to lock the front door, turn off the lights, and lower the temperature slightly. Similarly, when you disarm it, it can unlock the door and turn on the lights. The thermostat can even be set to the ideal temperature in time for your arrival. You can do all this using a single key on your smart phone – whenever and wherever. More information on home security is available at www.protectron.com/interactive
