Home Security From Anywhere
Who’s Watching Your House While You’re Away?
School is out, and many are working out of their homes. This means there is a lot of activity at your house. Even so, there comes a time where you need to leave the house to go into the office and run the errands. What if the kids choose to stay behind? Are you comfortable leaving them alone at home? What can you do to make them more informed and confident to handle any situations that may arise?
Security Systems & Responsible Children
It’s estimated that 7 million children nationwide are left at home alone regularly. Most states will leave it up to the parents to decide how old a child should be to stay at home alone. State agencies recommend a child is at least 10 years old before they are left for an extended period of time during the day. You can try your best to prepare them for this. One priority is that they know how to arm and disarm your home security system if needed. Do they have a smartphone or computer where they can see who is at the door should the video doorbell ring? They shouldn’t have to answer it since, no matter where you are, you should be able to access the same video and communicate with the caller if needed. Make sure your children have additional contacts listed, in the event you are not available at an important moment.
Home Security to Stay Informed & Notified
Additional cameras on the outside, and even on the inside of your home, should ease your mind. Live streaming the activities in and around your home while you are away lets you relax just a little more. StarBrite Home Security can help you to make a customized plan just for your home after you tell us your exact needs. A video doorbell is a great beginning, but each layer of protection that you add on only makes your family safer. Video recording can be chosen, which allows you to store the footage and later review if necessary. Even better, you can have award-winning Brinks Monitoring watching out for you 24/7. Keep yourself available to your children when you have to run out.
Home Protection Peace of Mind
What if you can break away for a couple of days with the family? Having a home alarm system that is monitored 24/7 will allow you to truly relax. If an alert pops up, Brinks will make sure the correct emergency responders are notified. Even though Brinks Monitoring is watching your home, don’t forget to have a trusted neighbor or relative on call. If an unforeseen emergency comes up and you are too far away, the security company can give these contacts a call to handle any decisions that need to made right away.
