You should check your home owner insurance. I know that mine requires somebody to enter the premises and check it over every few days. If you can't prove that that was done and something goes wrong, you may not have insurance.

Yes, all my home insurance policies say that someone has to actually enter the home to inspect no more than three (or maybe four, I forget) days apart.

Woodie, you can see if there are house sitter businesses in your area. If not, you could look for pet sitters who might just house sit. You need to determine that a business is a legimate registered business with insurance. Most of all, you need to have references from people who you find believable that the business owner is reliable. As JohnB and baglo and Jim said, the home insurance policy company can be particular about it also.

I once saw that a woman had a computer set-up where she could look at the house interior from anywhere, on her computer. She did and saw people were there. The police caught them. I have tried to find such a system but have not found one I like, so far. Anyone using one of those?

I was in my local Costco tonight. They sell a motion detector floodlight and video capture camera unit for $100 that takes 200 20 second videos and saves to a 2 gig SD card. Good way to film intruders. Otherwise you need a full wifi integrated surveillance system ( approx $600 at Costco as well).

You could do that. People with pets might like it or anyone worried about the trailer. I wouldn't be surprised if quite a few people with big motorhomes or trailers have such systems.

Don, thanks, I will have to check those out.

Bingo, sometimes it's just knowing the right words to look up.There are a couple places in Kelowna area that offer just that kind of service.Snowbird home watch service.I haven't talked to them yet but will wait until it's time to go away somewhere. One place has been doing it for 7 years so will check them out as to how reportable they are
Also wondering if the surveillance system talked about, is acceptable to insurance firms as to cover the stipulation that someone need to check on the home.
