From gadgets to see who’s ringing your doorbell, to smart tech to switch off your appliances when you’re out, there are plenty of ways to keep your home safe while you’re travelling.
I don’t know about you, but when I’m preparing for a big trip, I sometimes overlook the smaller details. I get so wrapped up in planning, washing and packing, that the second I lock the door to the flat I wonder… Did I leave my hair straighteners plugged in? What about the hob, was it on? What about the lights in the bathroom, weren’t they on when I walked out of the door? Oh and did I turn the heating off?
All I really want to do is get to the airport on time, enjoy a few films on the flight and then soak up everything the destination has to offer. I want to eat local food, explore the culture and return home with a load of special memories. I want to chill with a book and a mojito on the beach, rather than sit there worrying about things back home!
