Below are some tips for children and parents on how to stay safe while home alone.
Stay connected with your older children after school by turning on notifications in the Virtual Keypad App. You can receive notification alerts to your phone about any door/window activity, armings and disarmings, video clips and more, all through the Virtual Keypad App.
Review when and how to call 911. Be sure your child memorizes your address and phone number. A fire evacuation plan should be run through frequently and even hung up to review. Explain that it is crucial to leave items such as toys and electronics behind. Establish a meeting place to wait outside of the house.
When you can’t be home with your children, the virtual keypad app connects to your smart home & alarm system to help make that window/door safer. Turn on alarm notifications, arm & disarm or add codes for keyless entry, check your cameras, check your history of events and control lights, door locks & temperature all from your smartphone.
