Children are a wonderful thing. One moment, they are small and cradled safely in your arms, and then you wonder where the time went as they run out the door and have their first driving lesson. Their first steps are magical, and they are soon scooting across rooms and hallways. Then, they get tall enough to grab door handles, and the world opens up. Yours becomes more frightening.
Smart technology in the home can help keep your kids safe. It can alert you to dangers. As busy parents, this extra help keeps your sanity in check.
As kids grow up, they become more involved in activities outside of school, on the evenings and weekends. Your home alarm system can monitor activity at your property letting you know when they leave and when they return.
Door locks that can be controlled remotely and automatically disarm your alarm system when unlocking your door make it easier for your children and their babysitter to come and go. You can program lights to turn certain lights on, especially in the winter when the days are short.
Smart locks and security panels have a great function where you can set individual alarm codes and assign them to people. It helps you to see who is coming and going, especially when you expect them at certain prearranged times. It also acts as an alert to see if someone who doesn’t have access tries to enter the home or any other unauthorized person.
Security cameras allow you to see all important areas in and around the house, all on your smart device. With some cameras, you can even communicate with the people in the house, allowing you to talk to people instantly and not wait for them to answer the phone.
It is a fantastic tool in the event of an emergency. You can help resolve issues quickly or alert emergency services while staying in contact with the people in the home to comfort them until you or other help arrives.
Whether inside or outside your home, you can see all the places your children play or hide. Whether everyone is home or away your monitored home alarm system can provide peace of mind knowing that your home and family are protected at all times.
A standard feature that comes with your home security is a chime feature. When turned on your security panel will alert you when a door or window with a sensor is opened. You can also set up smartphone notifications to get alerted anytime a certain door is opened or if a door/window is left open. It is useful when dealing with a curious toddler who has discovered how to open doors and windows.
Easy to turn on and with the ability to choose between sounds or voice alerts, you can secure the home even further from the inside. So, in those few crucial seconds when your eyes are averted, your toddler won’t get far without you being alerted.
Warm in the winter and cool in the summer, all without thinking about it? A dream? How about smoke, carbon monoxide, or flood detection?
A smart thermostat and monitored sensors provide all this at the touch of a button. You can set the heating and cooling to warm up or cool down in time for people to come home and lock the setting so that little fingers can’t reprogram and upset the finely tuned balance you have perfected.
Sensors monitor the environment and alert you to dangers like fire and smoke, CO leaks, or flooding. These extra details keep everyone safe and allow the children, or whoever is watching them, to focus on other things like homework or playing.
Smart features are powerful tools that allow you to program and set schedules to help you monitor your family and home. By syncing up your smartphone with your smart home, you regain some element of the control you lost when your children gained independence.
Accessing your home alarm system from anywhere means you can communicate with the home and the people inside, unlock doors, adjust the temperature, see what’s happening, and even talk to people who come to the door.
Cyberbullying is on the rise. We expect children to have laptops and tablets for school. Smartphones are everywhere, and they spend a lot of their time online.
With this increased exposure to the larger world, cyber threats are ever-increasing. You can reduce threats with secure internet connections, tight home internet security, parental controls, and regular updates.
The world has changed since our parents and even grandparents were children.
Our daily lives have become busier, and our attention goes in so many different directions that it is challenging to keep track of everything.
Home alarm systems have also changed, grown with the times, and can offer more support than just simply sounding an alarm in the event of a break-in. New threats are rising, and criminals find new ways to get what they want. Technology plays a part in our working lives and our private lives. It should aid in keeping our children safe.
Safety always starts at home, with children learning about stranger danger, hazards in the home, and what to do in an emergency. However, wait until they are old enough to understand and are more interested in learning to walk and explore. Then smart technology is your lifeline.
Even when they are old enough and have responsibilities, being aware of dangers isn’t always enough, so home security systems remain the powerhouse in your arsenal of tools to keep everyone safe.
