In the month of July, most families are knee deep in summer vacation. There are pros and cons to summer break, and most of the cons have to do with the upended schedules parents deal with this time of year. Fortunately, today’s parents can turn to technology to help them cope. If your smartphone is already a personal assistant, then going one step further by linking it to your home security system can be just the thing you need to help your family get through summer a little more easily. For example, utilizing smart home security can help you do the following.

Circumvent Scheduling Issues

Summer is busy enough for a young family – and if you’re a parent who relies on coaches, tutors, lesson givers and other parents to help keep your small kids busy on long summer days, then you have to work with all of those people’s scheduling issues as well. When appointment times, practices and events with these providers get changed, you may need to find new rides, backup caregivers and other support.

To make this simpler, your smart security system can help with the keyless entry function of smart locks. Rather than giving a house key to everyone who picks up your kids, comes in the house to teach them or offers some other support while you’re at work in the summer, you can give out a temporary access code that can be activated and deactivated as needed. You can even generate an alert on your phone when the code is used, so you can be aware when these trusted adults arrive.

Managing Your Teen’s Time Out

For parents of teens, a whole new set of challenges emerges in the summer. When teenagers see the start of summer vacation as a signal that they can stay out late at night, parents need support with enforcing curfews and keeping the house secure after everyone else in the family goes to bed (after all, you still have work in the morning!).

Using the smart technology of your home security system, you can program the system to trigger an alert when kids get home at night. That way, you’ll always know exactly what time they walked in the door. You can also create alerts for the kids’ phones, including one that reminds them when curfew is approaching and it’s time to leave.

These are just a couple of key ways that upgrading your home security system to smart home technology can make your family’s life easier in the summer. For questions on this easy upgrade, contact Park Security Systems. We will be glad to help.

Whether it’s college graduation, weddings or the moving season in general, summer is a time when young adults tend to make big life changes. Sometimes, those big steps include the plunge into first-time homeownership.

Many young homeowners are curious about the smart home movement, and the appeal goes far beyond technical allure. At the end of the day, intelligent young homeowners are like everyone else: They like technology that makes life simpler. At the same time, they also like the idea of having security systems that help them protect their first big investment – their homes. The good news is, they don’t have to choose between the two. For young homeowners on Long Island, NY, smart home technology can fill both roles: home automation and home security.

Smart Home Security is the Total Package

With a smart home security system, young homeowners can bundle equipment that:

  • Detects potential home intrusion threats. This happens by way of motion sensors, glass break detection and connected home security cameras, all of which is designed to work together. When a potential threat is detected, the homeowners can receive an alert on their smartphones.
  • Helps them enter their homes quickly and securely. Coming home after a night out is safer with keyless entry powered by smart locks that are connected to the security system. They can disarm the alarm, unlock the door and even turn on the inside lights from their phones as they pull into the driveway. This reduces time spent at the door.
  • Help trusted friends and family feel more welcome, by allowing them to have a temporary code for the security system. Overnight guests can come and go as needed without a key, and the homeowner controls when the code is activated and deactivated with a tap of the home security app.

With this technology installed, your first home can also be your first smart home.

For ambitious young professionals purchasing their first home, smart home security just makes sense. If you’re a young homeowner interested in learning more, contact All Action Alarm today. We would love to provide a free home security consultation.
