Extra Security Protection When Kids Are At Home

extra security when children are at home alone

The sudden closure of schools across the US are forcing parents to find childcare at a moment’s notice. This disruption to the lives of children and parents can cause overwhelming anxiety. Not every family has the financial security to stay home from work or a support system that is available to help on a day to day basis. This is especially true for single parents.

Luckily– there are ways to protect your property and family. Start by adding a security system with 24 hour monitoring. Around the clock monitoring for burglar, fire and carbon monoxide alarms saves you critical time and provides you with peace of mind in the event of an emergency.

 If you are monitoring a DIY security system yourself instead of having it professionally monitored, keep in mind that you are responsible for contacting the authorities if there are any emergencies. When children or young adults are home alone it is easy for accidents to happen. If the oven is left on or a candle is left unattended, 24 hour monitoring can be a life saver.  

One of the best tips for working parents is adding security cameras to your home. Our indoor 360 degree camera allows you to communicate effortlessly with your children when you are away by using the two-way audio feature. If your children are not answering their phone or are too young to have a phone, you will be able to speak to them through the smart camera directly.

Motion activated interior video cameras can be used to alert parents when their children get home, as a babysitter or nanny cam, and for people caring for the elderly. The video feed is sent directly to your smart phone, allowing you to check on your home and loved ones from anywhere at any time. When adding Z-wave products to your home you can also control the locks, thermostat and lights from your mobile device.

A security system is only as good as its monitoring center. This why we use Affiliated Monitoring’s UL Listed, TMA Five Diamond Certified and FDNY Approved monitoring center. We assure that your home or business will be handled the same as any high risk account.
