Whatever you need to protect or keep track of, a contact sensor fixed to the appropriate door, drawer, cabinet or chest will let you know. You can even add one to the TV cabinet, or the drawer with the video game controllers to monitor screen time. Get as creative as you like!
Know who's where, when
When older kids are home alone, unauthorized visitors can be a cause for concern. Alarm.com powered cameras are a great way to know exactly which (and how many) of your kids' friends are hanging out at your house.
Activity-triggered smart clips let you easily monitor the situation. The front door opening, for example, can trigger an HD camera to capture a smart clip that's immediately delivered to your smartphone. This is a good way of keeping tabs on who's coming and going.
You can also use your Alarm.com to check in through any video camera in your home, anytime. This is great for seeing what your kids are up to and to make sure the babysitter is engaging with them, rather than with a smartphone.
Stay secure outdoors too
While all smart homeowners will secure their house with sensors, not everyone thinks to use smart home tech in the backyard. This offers great advantages, including knowing when your backyard gate is opened. As well as your kids and their friends, it's great for keeping an eye on your dog too.
A contact sensor on your gate is a great help when it's dark out. If your kid comes in late from playing with the neighbors, it can turn on the lights automatically. You can also use a smart switch to automatically turn the lights on right at sunset.
And don't forget your energy bills…
Sometimes, kids have better things to do than close the door as they run out of the house. An Alarm.com Smart Thermostat protects your wallet when that happens.
When the door is open for too long, it sets back to save energy automatically and doesn't set forward again until the door is closed. Meanwhile, you'll get an alert so you can send your kids a polite reminder.
