Vacation or back to school, big schedule changes represent new concerns for parents. With Smart Security System from AlarmSavvy, Co. your children coming home safely are less likely to be one of them.
If you’re a working parent with older kids, you’re not going to be there when they come home. Traditionally, that would mean a routine of check-in calls and keeping tabs on their whereabouts. That can be a hassle for everyone in the family, but not when you live in a smart home. Here are a few things you could do to make your house smarter:
Add Smart Locks
Keys are small and easy to lose. Kids can be absent minded – particularly with all that homework on their minds. Combine the two and there’s a good chance you might be making a few trips to the hardware store for extra keys, or calling a locksmith to change locks. Wait… you have hidden a spare key under a planter? That’s a solution that a burglar will thank you for.
Set Up Individual User Codes
With your smart lock integrated into your Smart Security System, your child’s user code can trigger an instant notification when he/she use it. That means you’ll know exactly when your kids arrive home. There’s no need for them to text you, to call you, and no need for you to wonder if they are safe.
Add an Image Sensor
An image sensor is a motion sensor with a build-in camera that takes pictures of who’s coming in and out of your home. Positioned to overlook the front door, it will take a picture when your kids arrive home.
