Make Back-to-School a Breeze with a Home Security System

Security Solutions to Help School Days Stay Safe

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.

Leaving the House

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.

Kids Return from School

As your kids walk home from the bus stop or are driven back by a babysitter, you can avoid mishaps of lost or forgotten keys with smart locks. Your children can use an easy-to-remember pin code (perhaps a birthday or the year you adopted a dog) to unlock the door. You can also assign your nanny their own personalized code too. Codes can easily be changed or suspended from your device when necessary, and automatic locks will keep your entrances safe from forgetful children. Smart locks are a much sounder solution than spare keys under a matt or in a flowerpot, which intruders can easily take advantage of.

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.

Check-in Remotely

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.
