THE CALGARY HOME WATCH SPECIALISTS

COMFORT, PROTECTION AND ASSURANCE

Calgarians are extremely hard workers who believe in the importance of taking time to play and get away. Perhaps you are away on a vacation or for business. Staying at your cabin or vacation property. Or enjoying the freedom of retirement as a snowbird. Whether it is a week, a month or a year – Acuity Advantage is here when you are not.

By hiring our Calgary Home Watch professionals, you can be confident your home is safe, sound, secure and is being looked after by an accredited Home Watch Provider. In addition to checking for security concerns or possible mechanical or maintenance issues that can lead to bigger problems, we can also provide value-added services: such as feeding pets, watering plants or replenishing water softener systems.

COVERING YOUR INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS

Many home insurance policies require that someone visit their home every three days when vacant. Knowing a check in on home has been done is essential for the policy to be valid. Through our scheduled Home Check visits, we ensure your home is being monitored so that you are in full compliance of your policy.

Acuity Advantage provides you (and your insurance company) with proof that your house is being monitored. Our real time reports provide verification that we were on-site. This report is emailed to you immediately. It includes our completed check-list, notes and photos.

We act on your behalf, looking out for your best interests.
