Summer is coming, which means it’s time to plan vacations and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. However, while enjoying time away, many people may worry about the safety of their homes. In this article, we have specifically summarized a few of our products that can help with family safety and make travel more reassuring!

Keep an eye on your home remotely.

In addition to asking your neighbors or familiar friends to help you keep an eye on your home when you’re away, you can also choose an outdoor camera to help check the condition of the yard and front door anytime and anywhere, all remotely. And when someone approaches your house, products like SwitchBot Outdoor Spotlight Cam can immediately push notifications to you and emit an alarm sound of up to 100dB to alert people around. It can also automatically turn on its built-in spotlight to help make intruders more noticeable, a great deterrent.
Outdoor Spotlight Cam also supports pairing with a solar panel for unlimited battery life, so you don’t have to worry about the battery running out while on vacation.

Check up on your front door status when you're away.

Remember to lock the door before leaving to go away! If you usually put a spare key under the doormat, remember to take it out before going out, and if you are using SwitchBot Lock, it is recommended to use it with SwitchBot Hub 2 or Hub Mini when going out for a long time. This way, you can remotely view the status of your front door in real-time, and when your door is opened, you will receive an alarm notification on your phone as soon as possible.

Check the status of your windows remotely.

Remember to close all your doors and windows before going out. If you want absolute peace of mind, we recommend you place a Contact Sensor in every possible place at home where people may enter, paired with SwitchBot Hub 2 or Hub Mini. Once a door or window is opened, you’ll receive an alarm as soon as possible. You can also place a SwitchBot Pan/Tilt Cam 2K facing your door, and when you receive an alarm as the door opens, you can check your Pan/Tilt Cam 2K to see exactly what’s going on.

Put your lights and curtains on a timer.

Before leaving for vacation, set SwitchBot Curtains or SwitchBot Blind Tilts up to open and close your curtains or blinds at a specific time every day, or turn lights on and off using timers with SwitchBot Bot to make people think there is someone always at home.

Unplug small appliances and electronics.

Finally, if you want to be a bit more economically friendly, and save on electricity bills (and eliminate all electrical safety hazards!) When not at home, remember to unplug the chargers of your TV, game consoles, phones, and computers to reduce their standby power consumption, or you can use SwitchBot Plug Mini to remotely power them off. After all of this is done, well, hey! It’s time to enjoy your summer vacation!
