Always have someone move into the house. Children, adult grandchildren, or one of their friends.
My neighbors went away for 2weeks leaving the house unattended and did not tell the neighbors on the street. The rubber hose to the washing machine burst. By the time it was noticed on the street the damage to the house was extensive.

For many years I did not have anyone staying at my house when I was gone (never for more than a couple of weeks). I have a yard service and pool company that come once a week. I've had both companies for 20 years so trust both.The worst that happened was when lightning hit the house - no fire, but LOTS of problems with fried appliances.
Fortunately, now my daughter has moved back home so she keeps an eye on everything when I am away.

The sensors connect to the system via wireless broadcast and the sensors are battery powered except for the video camera which requires a wall plug as does the control panel. The control panel has a battery backup that will last 24 hours. The sensor batteries will last from 2 years to over 5 years depending on the type of sensor. The simple sensors like door opening warning have 3 volt lithium batteries and last 5 yrs +. The more complex sensors use AAA batteries and last 2 to five yrs.

We have not had good luck with house sitters that stay ft at our house, so we now have camera plus our security system. We and our security company has access to our system and cameras.

We hired a friends son to cut the grass and his mom and sibling come over to hang out while he does this. The kids swim and mom relaxes, waters out inside plants etc.

Works best for us.
