Trust Golden Rule Home Watch to regularly check your home for you no matter the reason your property is unoccupied.

Data from the Insurance Institute demonstrates that an unoccupied home is at a higher risk of:

  • Vandalism
  • Break in
  • Failed HVAC – resulting in frozen and burst pipes, mold growth
  • Undetected water leaks – leading to thousands of dollars in messy damage
  • Clogged gutters or damaged roof – that may cause very costly interior damage
  • Pest infestation – insects and rodents move in very quickly to a vacant home
  • Unlawful home occupancy (squatters)

While Golden Rule Home Watch cannot prevent issues from occurring with your home, we can reduce their impact by finding them early. Working as your trusted agent we can prevent damage from becoming disaster!  Are you asking, “who will check on my home when I am away?”  Call Golden Rule for Peace Of Mind!

You may trust a neighbor or family member, however they have likely not been trained in professional home watch. Living in a home and conducting detailed home checks are two very different mind sets. They may not be able to visit your home regularly and provide a detailed check list and walk through report to you. Also, if something happens to your home while they are watching, family and neighbor relationships can be damaged.

 

Golden Rule Home Watch staff are trained, tested and trusted to provide the highest level of service available in the industry. We use technology enabled monitoring, extensive checklists and detailed reporting to provide comprehensive home watch services. We are trained to respond to issues and handle them for you in your absence, using our extensive network of service providers approved by you. Trusting your home to the professionals at Golden Rule means peace of mind for you.

Yes.  Sometimes homeowners do not want or need anyone inside their home while they are away.  Golden Rule does provide limited home watch services at your direction. Likewise, if your biggest concern is your automobile, then we will provide CarWatch℠ services only.

 

Golden Rule Home Watch & Concierge always customizes our service to the needs of every client.

Golden Rule Home Watch has two technology solutions for monitoring the environment in your home.

Internet-based system (when the home has an active internet connection)

The internet solution has a central hub that plugs into a standard wall outlet for power, and plugs directly into your internet router. The hub then communicates with deployed environmental sensors wirelessly via radio frequency. The hub receives information from the sensors and communicates with Golden Rule Home Watch via the internet.

Cellular Based System (when the home has no active internet)

The cellular solution has a central hub that plugs into a standard wall outlet for power. The hub communicates with deployed environmental sensors wirelessly via radio frequency. The hub receives information from the sensors and communicates with Golden Rule Home Watch over the cellular network.

Golden Rule Home Watch has reviewed and tested numerous residential and commercial grade environmental monitoring solutions. While no technology solution can detect 100% of issues, we have selected high quality, reliable sensors for use in your home.

We would love to call or email you to answer any questions or concerns that you might have about our services. You can reach us any way you’d like here.
