Are Your Kids Home Alone ?

As a parent, allowing children to stay home alone can be scary.
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.

Keep doors and windows locked and closed. Children shouldn’t open the door for anyone, including a person who says they are a repairman or police officer. Instruct your child to call the local police department to confirm. Practice scenarios such as knocking on the door too ensure your child is prepared in a situation

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.

You may need to make the stove and oven off limits when you’re away if your child is not 100% confident when cooking. There is less risk when using a microwave.

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.
