With the holidays here, it’s time to take a break from our regular routines and think about finding that perfect gift for family members. With many customers shopping online and millions of packages arriving at doorsteps this December, pilfering presents has unfortunately become a lot easier.
Homeowners often have to worry about “porch pirates”: thieves who steal packages left at the front door and even follow UPS, FedEx, and other vendor deliveries as they make their way from home to home. Theft has skyrocketed, with more than 23 million Americans saying they had packages stolen from their home last year, according to a report from InsuranceQuotes.com.
At Reliant, we want Houston residents to feel safe and in control of their homes — no matter where they are. Criminal minds are getting smarter, but we’re a step ahead. As we work to power, protect, and simplify life, our goal is to give customers peace of mind whether they are traveling, at work, or anywhere on the go.
Ding dong, you’re on candid camera
Video doorbells lead the smart home holiday shopping lists this year, and Reliant offers the ultimate in security: a state-of-the-art Wi-Fi Doorbell Camera from Alarm.com. Using the Reliant Connect app, the doorbell lets you answer the door, speak to visitors via two-way audio, and record doorbell-triggered clips. Best of all, you can do this from thousands of miles away.
Additional features include the ability to unlock and lock the door when a doorbell notification is received, automatically turn on front lights when motion is detected, and view a live video feed when the doorbell is pressed. So beware, porch pirates and unwelcome visitors, the home you’re eyeing is probably smarter than you!
Beyond the door: total home protection
While away from home during the holidays, it’s important to stay connected anywhere, anytime, to what is often your largest investment: your home. The good news is that Reliant makes enrollment and installation of home security quick and easy.
Our suite of home security packages and automation tool offerings can be customized to meet your needs. Whether it’s window sensors and control panels in the essential plan, image sensors and wireless door looks in the advanced plan, or night vision cameras in the premium plan, security is in the palm of your hand. All packages run through the Reliant Connect app and provide 24/7 monitoring services.
From everyone at Reliant, we wish you a very happy and safe holiday season. To learn more about Reliant’s security offerings and how they can be tailored to your home, visit Reliant.com.
