No Need for a Home Walk-Through with a Full Security System?

I just got done writing the "Home Walk-Through After a Vacation" article. I always walked through my home after a vacation. But I did not do that after this past Independence Day holiday.

While driving home, on the way to Los Angeles, from San Francisco, on I-5, I started planning and thinking about the walk-through. Then it occurred to me that I didn't have to do the walk-through any more. Why? Because I now have the Netgear Arlo video surveillance system and the KERUI alarm system.

I have placed the Netgear Arlo security cameras in all the critical locations around our home. Intruders cannot approach our home without triggering the video camera system, which would send me an alert on my Android SmartPhone. I haven't received any alerts. But I have double-checked that the video security hasn't caught anything on video. The live camera through the Internet is still working, meaning power hasn't been cut.

In addition, the KERUI security system has been set-up with door and window sensors. And five motion sensors are in critical areas of the home to detect intrusion. The security system is connected to my home phone line. If any sensor is triggered, it would have called me on my cellphone. The KERUI security system has not called me.

So I felt pretty safe that no one has penetrated my home security defense. And when I got home that night, we pulled the car straight into the garage and allowed everyone into the house without doing a walk-through.

Would you feel comfortable doing that? Or do you feel far better if you had done a walk-through anyway?
