How to Secure Your Property & Valuables With Smart Lock While on Vacation

There’s a lot going on in the world today. And – by golly, by gum! – you’re absolutely ready for a vacation. You need one and it’s well deserved. You have your bags packed. You’ve already arranged for a neighbor to look after your pet. But you forgot to consider the most important thing you leave behind — your home! No worries. Smart locks are all the rage now, and Turbolock’s range of security products can help protect your property while you travel.

Keeping your property secured while on vacation involves two approaches.

  1. Ensure the security of your home and belongings.
  2. Protect your personal items while you travel. This might include locking down your RV, bike and luggage.

Fortunately, smart locks provide a universal solution to safeguarding your property.

Benefits of Using Smart Locks to Secure Your Home

If you have a house sitter or someone coming to check on your pets, you can give them their own security code and set an expiration time for added safety. Once you return home with a fabulous new tan, you can reset the codes and forget about collecting keys to maintain your security.

Smart locks let you track who comes in and out of your house. It’s a great way to track when your kids arrive home without waiting up or calling them on the landline while you’re on vacation. If you’re worried about people leaving the door unlocked, you can double-check online from your Parisian hotel.

Protection from Lock Picking

Fear of burglaries can keep you awake and ruin your vacation Zen. Traditional locks are vulnerable to lock picking. However, smart locks that rely on keyless entry require a code that the would-be thief conveniently will not possess.

Locks such as the Turbolock TL116/TL117 —  the 117 model is Bluetooth-enabled with app control — provide a digital deadbolt lock with a keypad and voice prompts. If you still have a cleaning service or need to allow people into the house to care for pets, keyless entry is the way to go.

Forget about passing out keys to everyone in the neighborhood. You can grant access via 10 programmable passcodes. And a voice prompt guides you through the setup in minutes, so you can concentrate on making vacation plans.

And, while you’re on vacation mode, it’s good to have the peace of mind of a one-year limited warranty.
