Summertime has come and gone, and the kids are back to school. Whether your children are learning their ABCs or how to drive this year, ensuring their safety after school isn’t always easy. Even if you have a babysitter or trust your teens with a key, you may find yourself distracted at work wondering how the kids are doing.
But with a fully integrated home security system from Control4, you can grant yourself the gift of peace of mind while the school bell rings in the afternoon. As a Baton Rouge, LA-based smart technology firm, we have years of experience building custom security systems for a range of homes and families.

Cereal bowls are empty, bags are packed, and your family is out the door for school and work. Prepare your house’s security in just a few taps on your tablet or smartphone with the Control4 app. Lock all doors, set alarms, and turn on security cameras if they’re not activated already. You can even arrange for the thermostat and lights to turn on at specific times, so later tonight, your kids won’t have to fiddle with the temperature, and your walkway will be lit for your return. As the kids journey to school, and you head off to work, you can rest assured that your home is safe.
After your children open the door and walk inside, you’ll receive an alert to your phone of detected activity. The daily message will be a comforting reminder that the kids returned home safe, and you can check your entrance’s surveillance cameras to ensure it is them. If you don’t receive a notification that the kids returned home, you can call them or their nanny to see if everything is alright.
Another perk of a home security system is the ability to check in on your home from any location. If the kids are in and out of the house in the afternoon, you can verify the status of your home’s locks right from your smartphone. Lock the garage remotely and turn off any lights that may have been left on. If the kids call saying, “Someone is at the door,” you can inspect live camera footage to see who it is. And through a video doorbell system, you may even communicate to the visitor. If it’s just a neighbor or friend on your font steps, let the kids know. But if it’s someone suspicious or dangerous, you’ll be able to notify authorities immediately.
