How Home Security and Home Automation Technologies Can Support Moms
The ways home security and home automation technologies can help moms (and dads, too) are endless but here are just a few of the most significant to get you started.
As a parent, we are always worried about the safety of our children, so if there is a way to increase their safety we are definitely on it. Home automation provides a multitude of customized ways to improve the safety of the entire family, including your kids. Here are some of the best:
- Use your phone to check the security camera in your baby’s room to make sure all is well.
- Motion sensors can alert you if an industrious toddler tries to escape to the backyard.
- Encourage independence while still ensuring safety by getting a text when your older child comes home and opens the front door.
- Before you open the door to anyone, you can see exactly who is there and find out for what purpose.
Every home needs some structure to function properly, but it is a tough task to maintain. With help from home automation though, you can have everyone and everything shipshape in a flash. Here’s how.
- Never let the doorbell disrupt naptime. Just set it to silent and let baby sleep peacefully.
- Kids always want to push bedtime a bit later than you’d like. Make lights out time really lights out by scheduling when they go off. An added advantage is that you can always take out your smartphone and see who is breaking the rules without having to get out of bed or give them warning when they hear you coming.
- For kids that are slow to wake in the morning, use lighting, temperature, and music controls to help the process along.
