October is when the cycle of “holiday season” yard décor really kicks off. Prepping for fall, and the never ending piles of leaves, many homeowners take to retail outlets looking for the creepiest and most festive Halloween decorations. From strobe lights, to stringing faux spiderwebs all over their property, some families can really take it to the next level!
We all love seeing front yards looking like they came right out of a Scooby Doo cartoon! From skeletons sitting on a front porch, to bats and spiders hanging from trees; even fog machines or lighting fixtures can add to the atmosphere. There are always one or two families that go all out, converting their garage or entire home into a Haunted House. With all of this time and money invested into the festivities, you will want to make sure your décor is less likely to get swiped while you are at work.
You also want to be sure that your entire front yard is protected from criminal activity, but still “screams” Halloween! Giving the local neighborhood kids a good jump scare can be fun, but when it comes to scaring off would-be intruders, nothing works better than smart home security. Even haunted houses could use protection!
IT ALL STARTS WITH A YARD SIGN
When an intruder sees that bright blue Brinks Home Security sign, they will immediately know that your home is being monitored by the best. Most potential break-in attempts end when they see a yard sign, knowing that there may be a surveillance system or camera solution that will start capturing them on video as soon as they approach your home.
With 4 strategically placed video cameras that tie into your smart home security system, you can keep an eye on the perimeter of your home from anywhere. Your cameras will also acts a deterrent to break-ins. The last thing a criminal wants is video evidence of their crime, their profile, or their automobile.
While comprehensive surveillance solutions can cover your entire perimeter of your home, a more cost effective video doorbell can provide your home with smart surveillance for a fraction of the price. You can also set your doorbell to alert you anytime there is activity on your front porch. With two-way communication, you can even call someone out if they are lurking around the front of your home.
With a smart home technology, you can also keep tabs on the temperature your home with a thermostat. The front door is going to opening and closing all night, regulating the temperature in your home can be a challenge. When the trick-or-treaters start coming, keep that heat cranked!
Smart lighting can help manage traffic flow of trick-or-treaters if you (God-forbid) RUN OUT OF CANDY?!?! This happens on occasion, and with a smart lightbulb on your front porch, you can remotely shut your lights down from anywhere… or at least until you get back from the store with another back of candy…
