Kids grow up fast, and before you know it they’re old enough to stay at home on their own after school.
It’s one of the first steps towards your child earning independence, and you don’t have to worry about leaving work early or paying a babysitter to look after your children when they come home.
When this major step first happens, it’s natural to worry about your kids. Will they be safe on their own? What if they lose their keys? Can they be trusted to not have friends over for hours on end?
Smart Home security can dissolve these worries for you. With access Control and a discreet connection to your home, Smartzone’s security system is the perfect solution for peace of mind. Here’s how it can help.
- No more keys to lose
It’s no secret that kids can be careless. I’m sure most of us have misplaced something very important while we were young and carefree. However, losing keys can be a hassle especially when it means you leaving work early to let the kids in. It’s an inconvenience and it’s even worse if you have to return to work and finish off urgent tasks before heading home yet again.
Smart locks eliminate the need for keys. Through the app you can create a unique four digit code so you know if your child got home okay and what time they arrived home at. You can also set different rules for when your loved one returns, such as the system disarming so they alarm isn’t set off.
2. Get alerts when they return home
Knowing when your child has arrived home gives you peace of mind so you can focus on your work and not have to worry for hours on end. Set customised alerts trough the app so you will get a notification when your child has entered their code.
As time goes on and trust builds, you can choose to switch this alert to a no-show alert so you’ll be notified if they don’t return home on time.
3. Know who is ringing the doorbell
It’s common to worry about strangers at your door. With a video doorbell you get first view into who is outside your house. Be the first to answer the door through the intercom feature and see who is there through live feed to your phone. This means your kids won’t have to answer the door to any strangers.
4. Keep them out of forbidden areas
Perhaps your kids aren’t allowed friends over after school as they need to focus on homework. With solutions for indoor and outdoor video monitoring you can see exactly what friends are over, and if they are doing homework or getting up to mischief.
You can also place contact sensors on forbidden rooms or cabinets so your kids don’t get up to anything they really shouldn’t.
5. It’s reassuring for both of you
Being left at home alone for the first time as a young teen was probably one of the best feelings. It’s liberating and you feel trusted and independent, but it can also feel a little unsettling – especially at the beginning.
Knowing that you’re still connected to what is happening in the home can make your kids feel safer, and make you feel at ease knowing that your kids are okay.
