School is back and with the new year comes a lot of excitement and a lot of stress – especially for parents.
Through the new year you’ll help your children engage with new responsibilities and watch them as they reach new milestones. However, as a parent it is natural to develop some worries during the year.
This is especially true if your kids have reached the ‘home alone’ stage where they start arriving home while one or both parents are still at work.
While the kids may rejoice for their newly found freedom, it’s easy for you to worry about whether they’re okay on their own.
Smart Home technology can help ease these worries. Smartphone alerts, live video feeds and remote controlled access can help ensure that your kids remain safe in the home, and that you always know what they’re up to.
Worry 1: Did My Kids Get Home Safely
Wondering if your kids get home okay is one of the biggest worries of any parent. You may have a system with your child where they call or text you when they get home. But, what if they forget to contact you, and you’re too busy to call them?
With Smartzone’s Smart Locks you will get alerts when your kids once your kids have reached home. As the locks eliminate the need for keys it’s impossible for you kids to lose any.
Worry 2: Are the kids behaving themselves at home?
It’s easy for your child to get carried away with their new found freedom. That’s why it’s important for you to check in and make sure their behaving well.
Smartzone’s indoor video cameras allow you to check in and see what the kids are up to at any stage. The app allows you to view live feeds or to watch back on clips for any events that you may have missed.
Two way audio means you can chat with your kids while away or at work – ask them if they’re doing alright or even help them with homework.
Worry 3: Is the house secure during the daytime?
Weekday mornings can be hectic, especially if the kids are getting ready by themselves for the first time. With hecticness comes forgetfulness, and it can be easy for them to arm the system before they head off for the day.
Smartzone’s Smart Home app will send you reminders if doors haven’t been locked or the alarm wasn’t activated. This is handy for letting you know and ensuring that you take care of it remotely.
