Just when you thought you could relax after sending your kids back to school.
If your kids are similar to ours and had a lot of activities going on during the summer months, it’s likely they have even more extracurricular activities happening now as the new school year begins. However, with a Johns Brothers Security smart home security solution, we can help to alleviate some of the angst that comes along with an overpacked schedule.
Scheduling Stress 1: Clash of the Fall Activities
We’ve all been there. It’s Thursday night and your son has a soccer game while your daughter, at the same time, has field hockey practice. Yet as you approach the day of your son’s game you find out that your daughter’s field hockey practice has been moved up. You can’t be in two places at once, so now what?
Our Smart Home Solution: Arrange for your daughter to safely catch a ride to and from practice with one of her teammate’s parents. After your daughter is dropped off at home from practice she can then safely let herself in using a secured four-digit home access code. Once your daughter is inside, you will be automatically sent a real-time alert notification to your smartphone showing that your daughter is safe and sound.
Scheduling Stress 2: Mystery of the Forgetful Mind
With so many activities happening at once, we are often so overwhelmed that we forget the simplest of things. On these busy days it’s very easy for us to forget home safety necessities, such as to lock the front door or close the garage door.
Our Smart Home Solution: Accidents happen. In the event you or your children forget to lock the front door or close the garage door, an alert reminder notification will be sent to your smartphone automatically. This interactive alert enables you to then lock up and arm your system remotely while you are on the go. Likewise, if your children need to get back into the house after the system has been armed and the door has been locked, all they need to do is ring the video doorbell and you can greet them while unlocking the door to let them back in.
Scheduling Stress 3: Captive to the Late Repairman
Fall is one of the peak times of the year in which various home improvements take place and repairmen come and go to your home. Your appointment with your repairman was at noon during your lunch break, but it’s getting close to time needing to head back to work and still no sign of your repairman. In these situations it’s easy to feel trapped within your home. There has to be a better way to handle these situations…
Smart Home Solution: Remove the need of needing to wait around with temporary home access codes. Whether for your repairman, dog walker, or neighbor, temporary access codes enable you to setup custom codes only good for a specific time period removing the need to stay and wait around or hand out an extra key to your house. Video doorbells also double as a great way to let your repairman inside while you are away.
