Back-to-School Essential

This Back-to-School Essential Keeps Delivering all Year

 

Time flies when you’re a parent. So does money. For example: is it already a year since your last back-to-school shopping extravaganza?

At least some parenting purchases have more staying power than a new school bag. Take smart home security powered by Alarm.com, a back-to-school essential for many working families with older children.

With an array of after-school safeguards for your kids, it delivers peace of mind throughout the school year, and for years to come. Your kids can even grow into it as they become more independent—which is more than we can say for their new trainers.

Fewer keys means fewer worries 

As soon as your kids are old enough to arrive home on their own, Smartzone starts making things easier with keyless smart locks and user codes for easy access.

Unlike keys, user codes can’t be dropped, lost on the bus, or left in the door. If forgotten, its owner can ring the doorbell camera and you can unlock the door from work. Like a set of keys, however, your child’s first user code can still confer a sense of responsibility that they’ll love.

Technology makes check-ins less challenging 

With every school year, your kids grow a little more independent. Meanwhile, you worry just as much as you ever did, and you need to know they’re okay after school.

Your Smartzone app is here to help, offering peace of mind via quick, visual check-ins. You can see a quick snapshot from any Image Sensor, view a live feed from your indoor or outdoor cameras, and even get front-door video clips of your kids arriving home.

If you prefer a hands-off approach, Smartzone also offers a range of custom alerts for specific activity and events, such as the kids not arriving home on time.

 

Smart reminders ensure that your house stays secure

As kids get older, they have more going on, which means they forget things. Unfortunately, this often includes securing the house when they’re last to leave.

Smartzone can help with actionable smartphone reminders. Once your teens have their own Smartzone app, your house can remind them directly if a door isn’t locked, or a window is open, or the security system isn’t armed when it should be. They’ll be able to fix things quickly with a remote command.
