What are your plans for this coming Massachusetts winter? After last year, it’d be no surprise if you were thinking of going some place warmer and waiting out the bitter cold. Something that might be stopping you from considering it is the safety of your home while you’re away for an extended period of time. Luckily, the South Shore Heating & Cooling Connected Home keeps you in touch with your home through a smartphone or other mobile device.

Here’s what you can do when you have control over your home in the palm of your hand:

Welcome your guests…

While you’re away, you might still have friends, neighbors or family members dropping by to check up on your home. With remote doorbell monitoring, you can see who’s approaching the door in real time, and using remote locks, you can let guests in or keep pests out!

Check on your home…

Indoor and outdoor cameras allow you to see what’s happening at home from many different angles, no matter where you are. With video alerts and a real-time video feed, you’ll have eyes on your property 24/7. This is perfect for when you have to leave pets, older children or elderly family members behind while you travel.

Protect your home…

Flood-related damage is a common fear among homeowners – you’re not there to make sure your heating equipment is keeping your home at a reasonable temperature, which can result in pipes freezing and bursting. No one wants to come home to that mess! With water damage protection, when a leak is detected the water main is shut off automatically and an alert is sent to your phone. Additionally, an ideal way to prevent frozen pipes is with…

Oil Tank Monitoring!

Staying on top of your fuel levels is important, even if you’re going away for an extended period of time. If the heat isn’t working, it can lead to the aforementioned burst pipes, but it can also create an uncomfortable environment for any family members, guests or pets that are still at home.
