It is the most wonderful time of the year with Thanksgiving this week and Christmas right around the corner. From turkey and dressing to pecan pie, relatives gather from all over to enjoy a day of food, fun, and good ole family bonding. Thanksgiving is also a time to keep safety in mind both in and out of your home. Whether you are hosting Thanksgiving at your house, or you will be traveling to see family and friends, there are a few tips to keep in mind to help ensure that you have a safe Thanksgiving weekend.

  • Protect your home from burglars by installing an XTL Plus Wireless Security System from Guardian Security Solutions. The XTL Plus Wireless Security System is professionally monitored and has a variety of tools to help with the ease of securing your home. If you are traveling for Thanksgiving, make sure to arm your security system prior to leaving. If you forget, do not worry because the free app can be set to automatically arm your security system.

    If the Thanksgiving festivities are hosted at your home this year, keep one central door unlocked for guests to enter. Keep all other doors and windows locked. If another entry point is indeed opened, you will receive an instant notification on your free app.

  • Utilize the “lights feature” on the XTL Plus Wireless Security System to set up timers on interior and exterior lights so that they turn on or off if you are away from your home on Thanksgiving weekend.

    If you plan on staying home, the “lights feature” on the security system free app can also be of assistance while you are taking your tryptophan nap. Turn on the outside lights with the app from your smartphone, watch, or tablet.

  • Install motion cameras that are easily integrated with your XTL Plus Wireless Security System so that you can easily identify if an intruder is indeed vandalizing your home or if it is a stray cat looking for shelter. Bonus: you can visually verify if an alarm is false with your security cameras. If the alert is indeed of concern, you can quickly notify your central monitoring station with the tap of a button through your app.
  • Keep a close eye on all appliances. A Z-Wave outlet can be integrated with your XTL Plus Security System so that you can easily turn on and off all appliances that are configured to your app. Easily switch off electric knives, mixers, plate warmers, and other electric chords that need an immediate shut off.

By following these simple tips, you can help keep you and your family safe during the holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Guardian Security Solutions!
