Happy New Year

Christmas is coming, what to do for monitoring?

December 14, 2021

It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but it's no less important to ensure that your home is safe and secure. Christmas is always a time when many people can get caught up in the distraction of the festivities,forgetting about the potential dangers that can occur. And getting caught up can mean getting caught out. Thankfully, there are measures we can take to ensure our homes, and everything in them, are hazard-free this Christmas.


Secure your windows

It goes without saying that leaving certain windows open, particularly those on the ground floor, is asking for trouble. Doing so attracts would-be thieves to your home like a moth to a flame. So, whether you're in the house or not, make sure you keep them closed when you can't keep an eye on them.


Check your smoke alarms

It's more important than ever to make sure that your smoke and co2 alarms are working properly. Christmas time and all the electrical devices that come with it can present an increased array of fire hazards, so test your alarms weekly if possible, so that nothing's left to chance.

Make use of your thermostats

Making sure the temperature of your home is at an optimal and safe level is an essential practice,and this applies to your household safety as well as your finances. Many home security systems allow you to remotely monitor your home's temperature, which can be a game-changer during the holiday season.

Of course, there is an easier way to ensure that all these precautions are being maintained. Why worry about needing to keep tabs on everything and manually change things, when you can leave it to a fully automated system that does all the work for you?

The HomeOK basic bundle has everything you need to monitor your home, ensuring it's safe and sound, without tricky and expensive set-up costs.
