Smart Home Parenting: Technology Makes Safer Homes

There is probably not a parent alive who has not at one time or another been overcome with fear when they find that their child is not where they thought they were, or where they should be. It is truly a heart-stopping moment. We fly through the house and run outside until we finally find them, playing with toys outside. The relief we feel when we find them is great, but greater still is being able to prevent the problem in the first place.

No matter what stage of parenting we are in, whether it is trying to corral toddlers or contain the teens, parenting takes a super-power sixth sense to keep them out of trouble and everything on track. As good as we may be at detecting trouble, some things are bound to slip through our extra-sensory radar. For those times, we have a back-up super power—our home security system. Yes, you read that right. Here are some ways you can boost your extra sensory perception and make your home safer for your kids.

Keep Tabs on Comings and Goings

When you have kids, you learn to expect almost anything. Every time you turn around, the teens are scheming to get out at night or little ones are going outside without asking. Common problem, solved with home security. Simply use door sensors and receive alerts when the doors open and respond immediately.

Make Some Areas Inaccessible

There are some places in the home that we need to keep off limits from our kids. Common areas such as the kitchen and garage contain items that could potentially cause harm if misused. Other areas are meant just for adults, such as the liquor cabinet. The best way to keep kids safe from these dangers is by making the areas off limits. Door sensors placed on garage, closet, cupboard, and cabinet doors can send instant alerts when activated and put you, the super-parent, on alert too.

Get Open Door Alerts

We all know how easy it is to forget to close the front door when we are unloading groceries or trying to get kids through the door. It is a common mistake, but a mistake that can lead to big, unforeseen problems. With the door open, small children can slip out and into danger or intruders can easily find their way in. Open door alerts can solve the problem by triggering an alert when the door has been left open for longer than 60 seconds.
