It’s that time of year again. The sun sets earlier, and warm summer days fade away, but your days don’t get any shorter. In fact, they feel even longer because of the crazy back to school schedule. Smart home security can help you feel organized with household security reminders.
Reduce Stress with Fewer Keys to Worry About
You have no idea how many keys you’ve made over the last few years, and the kids have lost twice that number it seems. Smart locks integrate with your security system to help you manage safe access to your house.
Assign each family member an entry code, and they can come and go as they please. There’s no need to hide spare keys outside anymore because your family can get into your home without them. While it’s possible for the kids to forget their code, that’s an easy fix. Simply have them ring the video doorbell, and you can open the front door from work.
It’s normal for the kids to forget to secure the house when they are the last ones to leave the house. They may be in a hurry to get to their friends and forget to close the garage or lock a door. Your intelligent security system can send everyone in your family who has the smartphone app reminders when your doors aren’t locked, or the garage is left open. Anyone with the app can correct the problem by touching the link in the alert.
Check-Ins are Easier with Smart Security Technology
As your kids get older you want to give them some independence, but they are still your kids, and you worry if they got home from school okay. With intelligent security cameras, you can set certain actions to trigger the video cameras to take a smart clip and send it to you.
One action you could use to cue your video cameras would be every time the front door opens. That way, you’ll see when the kids get home and if they have any unapproved guests with them.
Smart home security systems grow with your family, so if your security needs ever change, it’s easy to update and add new products. Your security integrator can help you add new features or design a customized system to fit the needs of your family.
