The bell signaling back to school will be ringing before you know it! With this revelation may come a sense of relief as the pressure to entertain and monitor kids while on break melts away, but that relief may quickly be replaced by worry as parents realize that their children could be at risk.
Unfortunately, not all parents are afforded the luxury of being home when their kids leave for or return home from school, leaving them concerned about the whereabouts of their children. That’s where a home security system comes in: With a SafeTouch security system featuring the IQ Panel 2 and the mySafeTouch mobile app, you can be notified immediately when your alarm system is disarmed and you will be able to see exactly who is disarming it, helping you know the precise moment that your kids get home safely.
Know Where Your Kids Are
Parents know the most important thing is keeping their kids safe. You can keep track of their comings and goings with the mySafeTouch app and the IQ Panel 2. For instance, if you are at work and do not receive a notification that your system has been disarmed at your child’s expected arrival time, you know to check in with your child.
In the event of the worst case scenario, having this notice from your system gives you a head start on locating your child. Without notice from your security system, hours could pass before you arrive home from work to find that your child never came home. The first couple of hours are crucial when trying to track a missing child. During this time, parents can maximize the chances of their child being safely found. Though this is an unlikely scenario, it is always a good idea to have a plan in case the worst does happen.
Know Who is Entering Your Home
The mySafeTouch app coupled with the IQ Panel 2 provides you with numerous capabilities. You will always know who is disarming your system and when. For example, if you have a dog walker or babysitter, you will be notified whenever they use their personal code to disarm your alarm.
If you have a housekeeper or repair person doing work at your home, you also have the ability to unlock your door for them remotely instead of giving them a code. The app also allows you to monitor security cameras remotely so that you can keep watch on who is going in and out of your house no matter where you are.
Connect, Manage, and Monitor
The mySafeTouch app coupled with the IQ Panel 2 operates as an integrated, streamlined system that helps you stay connected to your home even when you cannot be there. Whether you are at work, at the gym or on vacation you can connect each facet of your smart home tech with the IQ Panel 2, and monitor and manage your home security system from your Android or iOS phone with the mobile app.
