As a new year begins, it’s natural to start thinking about the usual New Year’s resolutions. Exercise more. Get better sleep. Eat healthier meals. Quit a bad habit.
What if you tried a different approach this year? After all, 2020 was a year of doing things differently. Your family worked at home, relaxed at home, learned at home, shopped at home and adapted your home to manage it all. You likely spotted the potential for a quick home improvement to help balance things.
So why not equip your home to help you achieve this year’s goals? With Alarm.com technology, it’s easy.
Finding balance means protecting your time
If finding more balance is on your resolutions list, prioritize the moments that matter. That means taking time back from busy-work and spending it on activities you enjoy.
Alarm.com gives you new ways to save time and energy throughout the day. You can put your home to work for you with automatic and intuitive security, lights, locks, heating and more.
Leaving home for a family activity? Just tap your app’s Away Scene to have your garage door close, lights turn off, thermostat adjust, and security system arm itself. When you return, Geo-Services ensures a warm welcome and a well-lit home, automatically.
Staying connected makes a difference
You may be seeing more of your loved ones at home, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re communicating more. It’s easy to get wrapped up in work, school, or other activities and forget to check in with each other. You can change that, though.
While you’re busy in the home office or out running errands, take a moment to check in with a two-way voice conversation through your video cameras. Even a short chat a few times a day can help you feel more connected.
Preparing for emergencies brings peace of mind
Spending more time at home this winter probably means you’re noticing home safety updates that you need to make, such as new smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. You can take care of those and much more with an updated, professionally installed home security system.
As well as knowing that everything works, you’ll enjoy total protection with smart home safeguards and professional monitoring. If there’s a fire or carbon monoxide leak, your thermostat will shut off for your safety, and your monitoring service will alert your local 911 dispatcher.
Resolve to look forward to something new
Be kind to yourself this year. After the trials and tribulations of 2020, we all need something to look forward to. Why not start planning a trip that you delayed in 2020, or find the class that you’ve been wanting to take? Maybe your family will grow, or you’ll start a new job.
Whatever the coming year has in store, you’ll be ready for it. And, with Alarm.com, so will your home.
