Watching Your Kids When They’re Home Alone
As summer begins, kids are excited about the few months out of school. They’re thinking fun in the sun, having friends over, pool time, and so on. What are their parents thinking, though? I, for one, am usually worried about what my kids are up to in the summer days when they’re home and I’m not. Have they done the chores I asked them to do yet? Did they even get out of bed? You know, the normal parental concerns.
Last summer, I added video cameras and Total Connect to my alarm system. Total Connect is Ener-Tel’s remote access app. It’s basically a portal on your phone or tablet that allows you to check in on your security system. I work full time, so it gives me great peace of mind to be able to check in on them and make sure they’re okay. Total Connect is compatible with both indoor and outdoor cameras, so you really can keep an eye on everything that’s going on at the house. I set up email notifications on my system so it alerts me every time the front door is opened. Total Connect saves a video clip of each instance so I know exactly who’s coming and going.
Earlier this year, one of my customers added cameras to her alarm system so she could check in on her dogs. So — don’t rule this wonderful feature out if you don’t have kids. Perhaps you’d like to keep an eye on your furry friends.
So no matter what you are interested in watching during the day, we have a solution — Total Connect. It allows you to monitor your home from wherever you are.
