As summer winds down, it is time to make plans for back to school. Purchase supplies, new clothes, new backpack, and making a safety plan. If you have a latchkey kid at home, it is time to put your back-to-school safety plan in place for the coming school year to ensure your child is safe and secure until you come home.
There are so many more things families can do these days to stay safe after school. Let’s take a look at the 123s of back-to-school safety:
1. Exterior Security System
See when your child leaves the home for school and returns at the end of the day but installing an exterior security system complete with a video doorbell. An SEi Security System can give you remote access see if you child remembered to arm the security system when rushing to catch the school bus – and if not – you have the ability to arm the system from your remote location.
Depending on the age of your child, you can provide them with the access code to arm and disarm the system each day. This will teach them responsibility. But, if your child is too young or they simply forget – you always have the ability to arm or disarm your security system from the app on your phone.
2. Interior Security System
Once the kids are home, you may want to know what it is they are actually up to in the hours before you come home. At SEi we can install indoor video cameras to ensure your children are doing their homework or chores assigned to them. And if not, on certain models – you can talk to them through the cameras to give them that appropriate parental nudge, ensuring that they are doing what they are supposed to be doing.
You can also utilize the SEi smart home system to schedule the temperature to adjust when your kids are home but save energy while no one is there. You can also choose a model that will lock the thermostat so it can’t be changed without a code, keeping those small hands from making drastic changes to the temperature of your home.
Lastly, if there are cabinets or doors – or the cookies jar – that you do not want your children to get into while you are away, you can install SEi contacts to secure the forbidden spots in your home such as the liquor cabinet, beer or wine fridge, gun safe, jewelry box, etc.
