You Don’t have to Leave Your Home Alone

by | Nov 17, 2021 | Blog

2020 was the holiday season of staying in – but 2021 many of us are itching to get away to see relatives or just to take that much needed vacation. Whether it is across town to spend an entire evening with family or friends or you are flying to Paris with your entire family, SEi has tools to make you feel secure when leaving your Home Alone.

I love a festive light display but I get concerned when my house stays dark while I am away. It is like a calling card for thieves: “WE ARE NOT HOME NOW.” By utilizing SEi’s Smart lighting systems, you can travel peace of mind this holiday season:

  1. Security: Throw Harry and Marv for a loop by utilizing your security system to fool them into thinking you aren’t out of town. We may not have a large cardboard cut-out of Michael Jordan to throw them off buy our security system can serve as your very own Kevin to keep your house safe and looking like someone is home at all times.
  1. Scheduling: When you do set up your magnificent light display, you can have them run on your security automation system. You don’t need to worry about plugging in or unplugging anything. You can use the Automated Scheduling feature to set your festive lights to turn ON and OFF during specific points of the day. You can even adjust the schedule to not be predictable to anyone paying too close attention.

Scheduling doesn’t have to be exclusive to those who are traveling either. With the sun setting earlier and earlier, you may not be home from the office in time to turn on your lights for the neighbors to enjoy. Set a schedule for your lights to turn on and off, even after you have gone to bed. You never have to remember to turn on those lights again!

  1. Mobile Control: SEI’s automation system will leave you feeling relaxed and secure so you can enjoy your time away. With smart control technology, you can control it all from your mobile device. SEi puts the controls in your hands. You can set a schedule for preset lighting. Lights can turn on and off when you choose or at a time you have preset. You can even turn the lights on in your house so that you never come home to a dark home again. It can be with preprogramed features, or you can do it yourself. With either option, make sure to download our app to help you.
  1. Energy Savings: Gone are the days of leaving on a light the entire time you are gone so your house doesn’t look empty. By setting a schedule for your lights, you can save on your energy bill by only turning on lights when absolutely necessary. That is something your bank account and the planet will thank you for.

This holiday season, let SEi worry about the security of your home, so you don’t have to. Take that trip, spend some much needed time with loved ones and relax knowing that SEi has you covered. With SEi by your side, you can be sure that you never leave your Home Alone.
