Home monitoring to enhance your traditional home watch visit
For additional peace of mind in between weekly or biweekly visits, Carefree offers a service to monitor temperature, humidity and power outages. It is simple, affordable and an added value to your Home Watch experience. The monitoring device is nick named “Sherlock”.
There are no long-term contracts, no confusing set up, and installation is as simple as plugging in the device and turning it on. Sherlock uses an internet connection via Verizon systems’ cellular data network with advanced temperature and humidity sensors and a lithium-ion battery back-up system that operates for up to 2 days without home power. This device works when your traditional wi-fi system doesn’t when there is a power outage to your home.
Sherlock delivers both text and email alerts when detecting a problem within 2 minutes; if conditions continue it alerts hourly for the first 6 hours, then every 6 hours for 2 days. This provides ample opportunity to have us respond to any temperature, moisture related problems and/or sustained power outages when you are not in residence.
