With security one of the top concerns for travelers, tech companies sought ways to assuage this fear by inventing service to add an extra layer of security during time away from home and on the road.

 

Noonlight (formerly known as SafeTrek) is a security that puts technology on your side to protect your most vital possessions when you’re away from home. The in-home alarm system connects with your mobile devices to alert emergency responders if something goes awry.

 

To use Noonlight, users can create a secure account and connect services such as Google Home, Facebook, Alexa and Nest to protect your home. When the devices sense danger — for example if Nest detects a fire or excessive carbon monoxide in the air — Noonlight will automatically connect with dispatchers who will deploy the appropriate emergency responders.

 

Even when you’re not away, the device comes in handy if you find yourself in a jam yet can’t access your phone. Trigger the alarm by telling Alexa you need help, and then the Noonlight process will begin.

 

Noonlight has been installed by more than 1 million users since 2013 and has assisted in more than 100,000 emergencies in the United States.

Under $100: Lyon, France

Somewhere between Paris, Provence and the border with Switzerland is the charming riverside city of Lyon, a burgeoning culinary capital in a country with one of the world’s best cuisines. Lyon’s reputation as a food destination grew within the past decade, and visitors flock to the less-crazed and friendlier town for a more laid-back approach to French cuisine.
