How to Prepare Your Home to Prevent Disaster

by Vault Smart Home

 

The powers of nature sometimes cannot be tamed or contained, however, a number of household disasters can be prevented with careful preparation.  Here are some simple ways to prevent a plethora of disasters with tried and true smart devices.

 

Smoke detectors to ward off homegrown fires

One of the most disastrous yet preventable tragedies is accidental fire damage. Just from candles alone, 15,000 homes a year experience entirely preventable fires. With the prevalence of accidental fire damage, installing smoke alarms in your home is one of the smartest investments a homeowner can make. Even though these products have been around for decades, current smoke detectors are smarter than ever and can alert you of a fire whether you are at home or away.

 

Avoid silent, noxious carbon monoxide

Our brains train us to avoid dangerous sights through conditioning, but what about invisible dangers? Carbon monoxide detection is only required in half of American states, however, it is always wise to have at least one in the home. Whether you accidentally left the car running in the garage or the water heater malfunctioned, a smart carbon monoxide detector can let you know of the silent killer before it’s too late.

 

Find out about flooding without dipping your toes

In this situation, you probably don’t need to put a foot in the water to know if it is fine or not. With causes ranging from astounding natural disasters to a single busted pipe, flooding is one of the most common contributors to property damage. Since flooding is not always preventable, the best strategy for combating water damage is early detection. Luckily, smart flood sensors are available to notify you at the earliest sign of abnormal water levels so you can fix the issue before it gets out of hand.

While making smart home improvements can sound like an arduous task, it has never been easier to upgrade your home’s tech!  Follow our beginner’s guide for adding smart features and automation to any home.

 

Research the features that most interest you

It is true that the home has never been more connected or upgradeable, however, not every person needs to purchase every device on the market. Researching important features and useful upgrades online can take much of the pressure off of committing to purchase a smart home system. Along with personal research, a smart home salesperson is always available to guide you through a system tailored to your wants and needs for your home.

 

Make an installation appointment with a technician

Retrofitting an older home can seem like a lost cause for the less technology-adept homeowner. Luckily, professional smart home technicians can carry the burden of installing technology from the most basic products to the most complex. Schedule an appointment whenever you are available and relax as a pro sets up your new system. On top of installing and testing new kit, technicians are also trained to walk homeowners through the basics of operating the smart home system.

 

Set up automation to improve your life

If smart home systems weren’t made to work on your schedule, what would the point be? Knowing this, your tailored system is designed specifically to improve your life. With the aid of an easy-to-use application, your smart home can be automated with the tap of a button to save you time and money while providing for your safety and wellbeing.

While this post cannot physically hold your hand through the process of beginner home automation, hopefully you feel equipped to begin the journey to a smarter home. If you still have questions or are ready to dive into home automation headfirst, call a Vault.Smart Home sales rep or visit vaultsmarthome.com for more information.
