British families are set to hit the road this weekend, according to the RAC. Just two weeks ago, the automotive services heavyweight estimated that roughly 14 million leisure trips were taken in the UK alone - over the course of just two days. Taking estimates from 5th-7th April 2019, the findings highlight something that hardly needed highlighting: we Brits like to get away over the holidays.
And with an additional wave of congestion set to take place over the coming weekend, and with so many of us expected to be away from home over the break, Easter provides a timely reminder of the importance of home security.
For those families who do set off over the break, many may not have the luxury of being close to home in the event of an accident at home. The thought of fire damage, water damage or even unexpected break-ins can often cause headaches for homeowners. But new technology solutions are working to alleviate some of the stress.
Smart home technology providers have been busy creating the security solutions that reassure consumers their homes are safe - precisely for these periods. Using easy-to-install smart cameras users can have sight of what is happening inside their homes when they’re not there. These cameras can connect directly to an app on a smartphone and can even alert homeowners when any noise or motion is detected.
Matt Poll, CEO and Co-Founder of Neos, a smart home insurance provider, says “When preparing for the holidays, it’s easy to overwhelm your mind with everything you need to pack, but it’s just as important to remember what to leave behind. Ensuring that your home is protected and under your watch is crucial over this holiday period.”
Homeowners can look to these technologies for peace of mind over holiday seasons, and act as their eyes and ears over the coming Easter break.
