Staying healthy during the Coronavirus Pandemic
As outlined by Canada Health, frequent handwashing and avoiding touching our faces, along with social distancing and sheltering in place can have dramatic, positive effects on curbing the spread of COVID-19. Regularly clean and disinfect frequently-touched surfaces and objects in your home, including doorknobs, countertops and bathroom surfaces. Use disinfectants or wipes, or use diluted bleach, alcohol or hydrogen peroxide solutions.Remember to also safely clean your devices.

Major safety benefits of a smart home
Smart home technology creates fully-integrated security, safety and convenience in one easy-to-use home system. Now, when staying at home and staying safe is more vital than ever, a suite of smart solutions can best meet your needs.
Secure your home and worry less with smart locks
Smart locks offer keyless home security, allowing you to lock and unlock your doors from a smart device. If a door is opened, say by one of your children, you’ll receive an instant notification. During these unsettling times, knowing that all your doors are locked, by simply checking your phone or tablet at night from the comfort of your bed, can help you relax and have a good night’s sleep.
Detect movement or glass breaking with wireless sensors
Motion detectors are small wireless sensors that offer an added layer of protection to your home security.
How do motion sensors work?
1. The sensor detects movement by using either sound waves or passive infrared
2. The sensor sends a signal to your security system
3. An alert is sent to you and our monitoring centre
Glass break sensors offer 24/7 peace of mind by providing an immediate notification if there is a breach of any of your windows or glass doors. They are invaluable security for homes with many windows or sliding patio doors.
Monitor in and around your home with video surveillance
These days, our homes and yards are also offices, schools and playgrounds. Keep an eye on your children with a home surveillance system. Video cameras in the playroom and backyard let you watch out for them from anywhere in your home.
Stay safe inside as you receive deliveries
During this pandemic, secure home delivery is vitally important. Many health officials are urging older and at-risk Canadians to stay home and opt for home deliveries of groceries, medications and other essentials. You also want to be sure your packages are safely delivered, even if you’re working at home or busy with the kids. With an TELUS SmartHome Security Wi-Fi video doorbell, you can see and be notified when a delivery person is at your door. Even if the delivery person doesn’t ring, your video doorbell contains a sensor that triggers video when motion is detected. If you, or your elderly loved ones, are staying safe and using home delivery, a smart doorbell offers priceless convenience, security and peace of mind.
You can rely on TELUS SmartHome Security to help keep you safe during these uncertain times. To find out more about smart home security, call 855.958.8181 today.
