Home & Property Watch

 Let our Home Watch service provide you with peace of mind knowing that your property is safe & sound.  

Know your insurance policy -- most home and cottage insurance policies require at least a weekly visit to be valid.

We will check your property as you require  and provide a full written report for each and every visit.


The BluThorn Home & Property Watch Inspection:

  • Secure and check all windows and exterior doors
  • Check thermostat, furnace, air conditioning
  • Inspect plumbing, hot water tank, sum pump, flush toilets, run faucets
  • Set up and manage automatic lights and timers to make the property look occupied
  • Remove flyers, newspapers or mail
  • Undertake a complete exterior visual inspection of your home for signs of vandalism or damage 
  • Tidy up any debris like downed branches that would indicate the property is vacant
  • Provide immediate updates via e-mail or text with video documentation regarding damage or vandalism issues
  • In cases of emergency, BluThorn can act as your “on-call, on-site” contact for your alarm company or neighbours
