Tips to keep your home safe when going back to school
The holidays are over and most of us are back at work. A new school year has started and with it comes new challenges for you and your children. As a parent, you need to make sure that they understand the safety precautions when going to school. Whether they are using the bus or walking to school, you need to make sure that they have the house keys with them and know what to do once they get home from a long day at school.
AAA locksmith is able to help you with some of these issues. We cannot take your children to school but be can provide you with some tips to make this transition a bit less stressful.
Our first tip that we can offer you is that you set up a plan with your children. This will include what time they should be ready for school and what route they will take when walking to school. They should know how to exit and enter the house safely. The more you talk to your children about safety tips the more they will be prepared when something goes wrong.
We know that teaching children where their shoes and book bags are can be a daunting task let alone teaching them where the house keys are. This is why we recommend installing a Biometric lock on your home which allows entry with just a pin code or fingerprint. By installing one of these high-security locks it will not only increase the security of your home, but it will ensure that your children will be able to get inside no matter what.
In addition to installing new locks, you should consider installing a CCTV camera or two, one at the front door and one at the back. With CCTV cameras at your home, you can both ward off would-be criminals as well as see when your children arrive home from school. CCTV cameras are a good investment into the security of your home and our local locksmiths can assist you with the installation and setup.
By being able to see when your children arrive at school will give you peace of mind and allow you to enjoy the rest of your day. As a bonus, the CCTV cameras will also allow you to see whether your children are doing their chores and homework. Some home security companies off this as an add-on feature but our residential locksmith are able to assist you with this service at a much lower cost.
Most parents today are required to work full time in order to provide for their family’s needs. This means that a lot of children come home from school to an empty house and this can cause a lot of stress to both parents and their children. AAA Locksmiths fully understand how important it is to know that your children are safe at home.
