Make sure your system is working correctly and upgraded with the latest features before you leave home
For many people, this year’s vacation plans have been thrown into doubt and uncertainty. But if you have the chance to spend time elsewhere — at a second home, on a road trip, or out camping — we hope you’ll take advantage of it.
But before you leave, take the time to make sure your home alarms and security systems are in tip-top shape. There’s nothing worse than returning from a relaxing vacation and realizing your home’s been burglarized because your alarm isn’t functioning properly.

Schedule a Home Security Evaluation
One problem we see in the security world is that many homeowners purchase home alarms, but don’t perform regular service checks. After several years, they discover the system is non-functioning only after a break-in or incident where the alarm didn’t respond.
If you haven’t replaced or checked your alarm system since you bought it, we recommend you call Lowitt Alarms for a free consultation and estimate. One of our trained and certified alarm specialists will assess your property and work with you to determine your home’s greatest vulnerabilities and the custom solutions that will be most beneficial.
We also offer Service Plan Plus for customers with a Lowitt Alarms system. For a low monthly fee, we’ll provide service, parts, labor coverage and a free annual tune-up of your entire system. You won’t have to worry about costly maintenance visits and you’ll have peace of mind knowing your alarm system is fully functioning.
Upgrade Your Home Security with Smart Features
A security system with smart features offers better protection for your home. Why? Because smart systems are proactive in the face of emergencies. With a smart alarm, smart door locks and smart sensors for smoke and fire, carbon monoxide and flooding, you’ll receive instant notifications on your smartphone when someone tampers with one of your devices or when an element sets one off.
A smart system from Lowitt Alarms also comes with our professional monitoring service. If an alarm or sensor is triggered in your home, it will send a signal to our central monitoring station, where one of our trained representatives will be on standby. Our representatives will alert local emergency services to send immediate assistance to your home. With 24/7 professional monitoring services, you can feel secure enough to go on vacation and leave your home’s protection in our hands.
Use Remote Access
Remote access is a fantastic feature you can use to make sure that everything is fine at home while you’re away. If you have a smart security system, you’ll be able to access and monitor it from anywhere in the world using your smartphone or laptop. With one tap on your smartphone app, you can check on the status of your alarm, sensors and door locks. If you leave for vacation and forget to set the alarm, don’t panic — you can set it remotely using your app.
