Hurricane season is well underway for South Floridians and others in the Southeastern US. With hurricane Ian leaving a trail of destruction on the west coast of Florida and new storms forming in the Gulf each week, this year is geared up to be particularly active.
Experienced Floridians know what it’s like to weather these storms: focusing on keeping your family safe and secure is your number one priority.
While home security systems can certainly give you peace of mind if you’re forced to evacuate before a hurricane makes landfall, being able to trust that your system will work in your absence is paramount.
Do Home Security Systems Work During Power Outages?
Whether your home security system works during power outages depends on the type of system you have installed. Equipment that is entirely reliant on outlet power is just as vulnerable as other plugged in appliances and smart devices. If the power goes out, so will your security system. This means if you have to evacuate due to a hurricane, losing power is almost assured, which would leave your home unprotected and vulnerable in your absence.
If your home is connected to a grid with automatic backup or has a generator, you may maintain power, but in many cases your home can be vulnerable to.any number of risks.
Criminals are known to take advantage of the chaos of hurricanes to get into vulnerable homes. Returning to find your home has been broken into and ransacked is such a violating feeling – especially during the already nerve wracking post-hurricane period.
Thankfully, there are ways to ensure your security system is up and running no matter what happens.
Protecting Your Home Security Systems from Power Outages
You can’t control when your home may lose power or even wi-fi connection. But having the right equipment and home security provider can give you peace of mind regardless of the circumstances.
