The security of your home is very important, even more so if you have children. The security of your home means that your house stays safe and protected from intruders or potential burglaries while you are away. It also means that you can sleep peacefully in your bed, at ease knowing your you’re safe. It means that when you’re away from home, you can be rest assured knowing your family is safe and you won’t be worrying. Beyond knowing your family is safe, and secure, a security system can also make sure your family is safe from other dangers.
Use Sensors To Stop Accidents, Not Just Burglary
Many people assume that entry sensors are for just doors and windows, and are there to alert you if your home is broken into. Beyond this great use, entry sensors can also be used to alert you when someone is entering anywhere they’re not supposed to: including your kids. You can use an entry sensor or an alarm grid on doors that lead outside, to places like the garden, to make sure your toddler doesn’t wander out there unsupervised. As soon as the door opens, on some sensors, you can alter the settings so it’s possible to hear a siren, chime, or even get an alert right to your phone. It’s up to you to decide which is the best and most appropriate alert for you and your family. You can also use the door sensors to keep children out of forbidden and potentially dangerous areas in the home, such as a medicine cabinet, or chemicals kept under your sink. Though an entry sensor isn’t the same as childproofing a cabinet, a sensor can work extremely well alongside a childproof lock. This will act as an extra layer of protection if you are particularly worried. An alert, especially on your phone, will mean you can react quickly and stop any potential dangers happening such as your child opening up a bottle of bleach or finding strong medication.
You Can Have Control Wherever and Whenever It Happens
Entry sensors work well to keep tabs on your children when you are not at home or are out of the room they’re in. Whether you want to know how many times your six year old gets up at night, or would like to know when your teenager is trying to get into the drinks cabinet, you will have access to all this knowledge quickly and can sort potential problems out. You can even get a text message, or email, en that door is opened.wh
PINs Add Extra Security
With a good security system, you can create a personal identification number for each member of the household or for whoever you like. This way, you’ll always know when someone comes home, to make sure they are safe and sound. This is especially a good idea for those of you who have teenagers. You can tell what time they came home and whether or not they stuck to their curfew.
