We are continuing our series on how to keep kids safe while they are home alone. Smart home systems have revolutionized the residential security system industry. The alarm systems of today are very different than the ones a decade ago. Indoor and outdoor security cameras have become especially popular. Alarm monitoring is a must because if a breach or smoke is detected, central station can send help right away. Let’s take a look at some additional ways you can help keep your children safe while they are home alone.
“Drop” in Using Your Smart Home Automation App
The beauty of our smart home systems and indoor and outdoor security cameras is they give you the ability to “drop” in on your children at any time. If you suspect there is a problem, or if you just want to check to make sure they are doing their homework, you can monitor them via the smartphone app.
Practice Different Scenarios
Practicing different scenarios can help ensure your children are prepared in the event of an emergency. Take time to have fire drills and practice calling for help. Also, if you have alarm monitoring, teach them what to say if central station calls.
If you do not have a residential security system or if you have a residential security system you would like to upgrade to a smart home automation system, we can come out to your home to conduct a complimentary evaluation. Alarm systems can be confusing so it is important to choose a residential alarm system company that is experienced and has your best interests at heart.
