21 Aug Back to School: Keep tabs on the kids while you are away with ADT Pulse
If you have school-age kids, it is likely that they have recently started back to school. While you are excited to see your little ones growing and expanding their minds, there are also many concerns that go along with being back in school; mainly with keeping tabs on the kids while you are away.
One of the main concerns that parents have revolves around what happens to their kids after they get out of school for the day. Since the majority of parents work outside of the home, keeping their kids safe is a major priority.
Most likely, you have found that daycare is not always an option for your kids’ after school care. Most daycares only provide services for children under a certain age. But, this doesn’t mean that children over the age limit are always safe once they get home from school. To help protect these kids, you are forced to find an alternate protection method. Here are a few items to consider.
Text Message Notifications
In today’s world, it is easier than ever to communicate with one another. Many parents who work outside the home decide to provide cell phones to their children so that they can contact them when they get home from school. Kids will simply send a text message telling their parents that they have arrived home for the day.
However, this is not always a reliable method of keeping track of your kids. Another option is to install an alarm system, like ADT, which can monitor your home and send a text automatically when your child enters the home. The great thing about this is that it will eliminate issues created when your child forgets to text you.
With this system, if a problem does surface while you are away from home, you will be notified immediately. Along with checking on your kids, you can also keep an eye on babysitters that are in your home, an elderly person that you are in charge of, or even your pets.
ADT Pulse Cameras
Another great tool that parents are able to rely on is ADT Pulse Cameras. These items can be installed around the home and accessed through an app on a smartphone or over the internet. Parents can then check the cameras to make sure that their child arrives home safely.
The great thing about these cameras is that they are also a great way to protect your home. Since they are installed around the home, thieves will be deterred from entering your home or damaging your property.
You will also find benefit with the entire Pulse system because you will have a unique way of controlling what happens in your home. This technology allows you ‘arm’ and ‘disarm’ the system from your phone as well as control lights and thermostats. You will love this benefit because children are notorious about leaving lights on when they leave the home. This is a great way for you to make sure that the home is secured after your child has left for school in the morning.
It is like having a babysitter, but better
Keeping track of the children is important for any parent who is working outside of the home. With these types of systems, your kids will be able to have the freedom of staying home alone, but you will also have the security of being able to check on them.
There are many dangers in this world, but ADT is working to provide the peace of mind that every parent deserves. If you are considering looking for ways to protect your kids when they come home from school, be sure to contact us today to learn more about these products.
