“Safe at home” may be the mantra of the day, but kids need extra help staying safe no matter where they are. If you’re a parent who has kids home alone during the day, you no doubt feel understandable concern for their safety while you’re away. Maybe it’s distracting enough to affect your work. If so, it’s time to give the kids another safeguard and give yourself some peace of mind. A smart doorbell camera can provide both.
While you’ve taken the important first step of implementing a security system and perhaps even added on a doorbell camera for extra security, the lock on your front door also needs protection. Fortunately, there’s a solution: a smart lock, which is an electronic lock that replaces the old-fashioned lock and key you have currently. When you have a smart lock, it can be accessed remotely with the same home security app you use to control the rest of your security devices.
Our front doors are busy and bustling: kids coming in and out, friends dropping by, and delivery people bringing everything from packages to your lunch. With so much activity happening, it leaves open possibilities for security risks: porch theft, burglary, even home invasion. To combat these risks, you need something that can watch over the most high traffic entry to your home: the doorway.
Does it seem like your utility bills get higher every summer? This year, they’re likely to be even higher because of Americans staying home more.

Summer is a time to enjoy pleasant outdoor weather, less time at work and more time with the ones you care about. However, it’s also a time that puts your safety awareness to the test. In a year that has already presented some unique challenges, are some ways your family can enjoy a safer summer in 2020.

It’s that time of year when we honor the fathers, grandfathers and others who cared for us while we were young.

For now, lots of parents are able to work from home. However, that won’t necessarily be the case forever. When it’s time to go back to the office, caring parents need a way to keep an eye on the kids from a distance. If you can relate, consider implementing home security technology that can help. Although there are many options to choose from, we recommend starting out with these two options.
You’re an intelligent, capable homeowner. Maybe you think that’s everything you need to handle an at-home emergency all on your own. But the reality is, most people need active support, especially if the emergency is a break-in or a fire. When one of these events happens, your number one job is to get yourself and your loved ones out of the house safely. Dialing 911 on top of that is simply too much for one person. If you have a monitored home security system, there’s good news: Your system will do that part for you.
