Pencils, check. Notebooks, check. iPad, check. New sneakers, check. Top notch home security system…
Back to school season is upon us, which means the days are getting shorter and colder, and schedules are getting more packed with activities like school, work, and sports practice for the kids. While this is an opportunity for people to get back to a routine, it also becomes an opportunity for those who may be up to no good.
According to jsu.edu, the majority of home burglaries and break ins happen between 10am and 3pm – the typical hours when families are at both work and school. While having a home alarm system is helpful in scaring off intruders, you can be aware of what is happening in your home from multiple points of entry with the right home security ecosystem .
Some smart locks, which function as deadbolts, can provide communication to a connected app on your phone, allowing you to see what doors are open in your home, or if any locks have been compromised. You can also install window sensors that alert the connected devices when a window is opened. This is especially useful if you have ground floor access.
However, the changes of this time of year don’t have to be all doom and gloom. Back to school season also means that everyone is back on schedules that may not align. Maybe grandma and grandpa are coming over to watch the kids when you have to stay late in the office for a meeting. You can give them a personal code to unlock the door, so they don’t have to worry about keys. Maybe your teen gets a ride home from a friend on a half-day of school. They can unlock the door with their fingerprint, and get inside to get a jump start on the homework you know they’re so excited about.
As the seasons change, our needs change. And while securing your home is a year-round need, this is the perfect time to get started.
