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.
