You work hard all year long for the opportunity to take a relaxing summer vacation with friends or family. So why spend those precious days away anxious about what may be happening at home? Whether it's a burglar breaking through your back window, or a water leak in the basement that ruins your precious family photos and costs a fortune in repairs, many have reason to be concerned when leaving their homes empty for days, if not weeks, at a time. That's why AD has rounded up the eight best smart tech products on the market to help keep your home safe and running while you're away this summer.

Honeywell Lyric Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector
Let's face it: Unexpected things happen every day. But what if we could have a bit of notice beforehand? That's exactly what the Honeywell Lyric Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector does in our home. Plug it in and rest assured that the technology will notify you on your smartphone as soon as it spots a problem, such as a broken machine or leaking pipe. Even if a pipe begins to freeze, you will receive a notification to fix the problem before it cracks and your room floods with water. Set it up to notify a friend or neighbor for those times you're enjoying a vacation in some remote part of the world. $79.99; honeywell.com/


Floodlight Cam by Ring
The Floodlight Cam by Ring is not just a motion-activated security camera, but also a technology that allows you to see who is at your house in real time. Through your smartphone, a video shows what set off the light, and if it's apparent the person has nefarious intentions, homeowners can simply press a button on their phone to set off the alarms, and speak to the intruder as well. The technology is smart enough to recognize certain faces, such as family members'. $249; ring.com/

Nest Learning Thermostat
The third generation of the Nest thermostat means a range of upgrades, starting with a bigger screen that is easier to navigate, and a device that quickly picks up on your habits and adjusts accordingly so you don't have to. The smart thermostat knows when you leave the house, and turns off the air conditioner or heating to save you money. With a smartphone, users can control the Nest Learning Thermostat from any corner of the globe. $249; nest.com/
 

BeOn Security Lighting
Throw off potential burglars with the BeOn Security Lighting system. The technology is such that when you select Away Mode on your smartphone, the lights will instinctively turn on and off throughout the house at the same times they had been when you were home. It's as if someone just came home from work at 5:30 P.M., turned on the lights at different intervals throughout the house, then turned them off, room by room, at 10:30 P.M. before going to bed. What's more, if the doorbell is rung at night while you're away, the lights in the bedrooms will turn on at different times, giving the impression that people are waking to see who is at the door. $129; beonhome.com/


August Smart Lock
Gone are the days of hiding the house keys under a rock or front door mat. With the August Smart Lock, you can provide simple access to your home for friends and family. Send guests a virtual key to their smartphone so they can easily come and go. Or, if you have a cleaning service coming to your house when you're away and they don't have a smartphone, you can provide a code to enter during set hours of the day. With the August Doorbell Camera, you can see, speak to, and record who is at your front door, and allow them into your home, even when you're a thousand miles away. $586 (for entire four-set package); august.com/
