Smart Tech for a Kid-Friendly Home
When you think of smart technology and your children, you probably think about tablets and other smart entertainment devices. What you might not realize is how much safer smart tech can keep your kids, while also making your home a little more fun for them to live in, too.
Beyond lock and key
There’s always extra concern when it comes to protecting your kids, especially when technology is considered. It’s no longer uncommon for kids to come home from school to an empty house, but at least now there’s a way to check in on them while you’re at work or running errands.
Door and window sensors can alert you that your child has arrived home safely, and a smart door lock enables you to let them in if they’ve locked themselves out. You can even consider equipping your home with a camera with two-way communication abilities and greet them as they enter your home. Keeping all of these controls in the palm of your hand can also come in handy when you need to know whether or not they were home for curfew, to let in the babysitter, or see if there are any unwanted visitors at the door.
Lighting control is a bright idea
Lighting and shade control can help you save on energy costs or blackout a room so you can watch a movie, but have you considered the impact your lighting has on your schedule? Imagine timed dimmers in your kids’ rooms to signal wind-down time before bed or ease the younger one’s fear of the dark by programming a night light, as well as get them up in the morning for school.
