If you’re traveling for the holidays, you know how important it is to “vacation-ize” your home before you leave—things like making sure the stove is off, the back door is locked, the windows are closed, and the thermostat is turned down. But we all know the downside to that last one: coming home to a house that is freezing! However, if you have a Vivint Smart Home system, you can not only check to make sure your door is locked and your windows are closed from your app, you can control your thermostat remotely and set up special vacation settings—eliminating that chilling welcome home!

There are a few different ways to set up your smart home for vacation:
