As your life changes, so do your needs for your home, including your security and smart home features. If you’re about to move into one of these life stages, you should consider how your security and smart home technology can support you.
A home is one of the largest investments you’ll make in your life. The first time you buy a home, it can be overwhelming to think about the amount of money you’ve put into your new property. This is the time to start to think about how to help protect that investment with a home security system. No matter how safe you think your neighborhood is, a system is a good way to have some extra peace of mind.
Getting a new pet is exciting but when you first leave your pet home alone, it can be stressful. A surveillance camera allows you to look in at any time so you don’t have to worry and wonder about what your pet is getting into, or if the new puppy is spending all day barking when you’re at work. As you get more responsibilities in taking care of your pet, you might feel a little overwhelmed. This is also a great time to throw in some smart home devices like a garage door control so you can manage your home from your phone.
Adding monitored smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and heat detectors mean that authorities will be notified if a potentially dangerous situation is detected. It’s comforting to know that when the alarm goes off, it will trigger a response from Guardian’s 24/7, award-winning monitoring center who is able to notify the proper authorities.

Want to make sure your kids get home on time? Give them a personalized code that unlocks a smart lock on the door. Then you can set up notifications so you get a text when they use their code. If you also want to make sure your kids stay out of the liquor or gun cabinet, then use smart sensors so you are notified when those spaces are opened.
If you have health problems or just want to make sure that you can get help if needed, a medical alert pendant can be helpful. If you want to maximize your energy savings and keep your budget under control, a smart thermostat will help you do that and keep your home comfortable, too..
There are many other life stages; these are just a few examples so you can see how your needs and the solutions to those needs might change throughout your life. To discuss your needs for where you are right now, contact Guardian and talk to one of our consultants!
