Lots of good ideas. I don't want to have to be constantly calling home. My neighbor will have a key and do a walk through every 2 days to water plants. I will have water turned off. (I will have water in 1 gal jugs for flowers)

I have a Nest thermostat and can monitor and control the heat from my phone https://store.nest.com/product/thermostat/
I also have a FloLogic system installed that shuts off water automatically in the event of a leak. http://www.flologic.com

Reliancecontrols.com has all the manuals, instructions, etc , easily downloadable, for the freeze alarm. It takes a few minutes to program it, but it works very well. They also make generator controls, accessories, and transfer switches.

We have had the same one for about the same time. It works fine at monitoring for power outages, freeze alerts, and water leaks.

His name is Neil, I pay him, he comes to the house every day.
keeps the house at 32 degrees F min and knows how to board up a window or what ever might be necessary.
Don't even think about the house when we're gone.
Told him not to contact me if it burns down,,,, it's insured and I can't do anything about it anyway.
And yes I have neighbours that leave their property unguarded and unchecked and therefore uninsured, worrying about it all the time they're gone!
