2. Check all doors and windows to make sure everything is closed

It’s obvious to lock all the doors before you go on vacation, but how do you get an alert when a thief breaks in with a tool and opens the door?

You just have to temporary key from home to the designated person and with this type of device, leave it activated for as long as it takes to be home, so that when you finish performing the assigned tasks, the key will no longer be useful to anyone.
