Your family means the world to you, but you can’t be with them every moment of everyday. Modern technology has opened doors and created the possibility to connect with anyone in the world at any given moment. Smart devices go far beyond a mobile phone. These devices are everywhere. They’re in our alarm systems, our thermostats, our pressure cookers and even our toothbrushes. There is so much technology at our fingertips, and it can be used to keep our loved ones safe.
Install an Alarm System or Video Cameras In Your Home
Gone are the days were your best defense against intruders was a security system that rang out loudly when triggered. You can now take your family’s security into your own hands. Help your family feel safe with an alarm system. There are internet enabled alarm systems and cameras that allow you to constantly monitor your home and keep your family safe. You can use a wide range of cameras. Anything from your old smartphone to an expensive webcam will work with most security set-ups.
Install Electronic Doorbells
To further enhance your family’s security, consider installing an electronic doorbell. Electronic or “smart” doorbells work similarly to security cameras. A small camera is located within the doorbell unit. This camera is used to provide two-way audio and one-way video. You can see everything that happens in front of your door, and you’ll be able to talk to anyone who walks up to your door.
Use Family Location Apps To Monitor The Location Of Your Family Members
Using a smartphone app, you can keep up with where your loved ones are. These apps show location information for the people in your approved network. You’ll be able to monitor where your children are, and get notifications for when they’ve arrived to or left a certain location.
Use Messaging Apps To Communicate With Your Loved Ones
Choosing a messaging app that everyone in your family can use is a great way to stay connected. There are several apps that offer text, audio and video conversations. Some of the apps may be available when you first purchase a smartphone. Other apps may require a download from the app store.
Use A Password Manager to Protect Your Sensitive Data
Keeping your online information safe is just as important as keeping your home safe. Use a password manager to help you generate and store strong passwords for your sensitive data.
Keeping your family safe is now easier than ever. With the use of an alarm system, a few video cameras and some smartphones, you can protect the people you love from anywhere in the world.
