Stay Safe With a Tornado Warning

Oct 03, 2016|

A smart home provides homeowners with a bevy of incredible security and convenience features, making their lives easier and safer, even during natural disasters and emergencies. For the Mancinis, whose home is in an area where weather emergencies occur, a timely hurricane or tornado warning via smart home technology can protect what's most important: the people who live inside.

Be prepared

Smart home technology is continually evolving. Live, up-to-the-minute weather reports during a tornado warning or other natural disaster may be one of the most life-saving options available. After learning about emergency alerts to help their family stay safe and aware of what's happening in their neighborhood, the Mancinis are now able to see when a tornado will arrive and where it's located.

Mike Mancini upgraded his home to include weather alerts and flood warnings, even an alert if a window is broken. Advanced preparation time also allows Mike to prepare for the worst, protect his property and most importantly, take cover with his family. The Vivint app alerts him even while sleeping to prepare for weather emergencies in time.

Weather the storm the smart way

Home automation does more than automate tasks, and during the storm is no time to run around outside locking doors and checking on the surrounding area. With the Vivint app, the Manicinis can remotely close garage doors or anything outside that's connected without taking the risk of leaving their home during a tornado warning. It also receives alerts if a door or window is opened, and they can see what's happening on the property via security cameras.

If the Mancini family isn't at home when the storm is raging, they can still ensure everything is securely locked down from anywhere. Remotely controlling the home keeps property secure during a time when damage may occur. Smart technology can keep the family and property safer in the aftermath of the storm, as well. This is because it alerts homeowners to any opportunistic looters checking if the property is unsecured.

Danger comes in different forms

Home automation provides a number of benefits, especially during poor weather conditions. There are so many other reasons to upgrade gadgets and devices to smart devices, and connect it all easily with a single app that controls everything via a smartphone or tablet. But family safety is at the top of the list.

Savvy homeowners like the Mancinis invest in smart home technology because the payoff in terms of safety, convenience, more free time and better life quality is much, much greater.
