Choosing the Best Home Monitoring System for Your Kids

The day has arrived. Your daughter is moving out. She’s found a place to stay and everything is moved in. The first month’s deposit has been paid, all the utilities are on, and the Wi-Fi is set up. She’ll be on her own, for the first time, in a major metropolitan area.

While everyone else is wishing your daughter massive success, the only thought in your mind is -how can I protect her from all the danger out there? The answer? Invest in a home monitoring security system. It’s the first step toward teaching your child how to protect herself.

For young adults just getting out on their own, the key to home security is finding a system that is easy to use, easy to set up, and provides some flexibility for their on-the-go lifestyle. Here are some features that you should look for:

Video Security: The home security cameras should be high-definition so that your daughter can see exactly what is going on in the house.

Wireless: In the 21st century, there is no reason to wire a security system. Today’s security tech offers battery-operated wireless cameras and sensors that can be placed anywhere.

Smart’-Friendly: If a home security system does not offer an app that you can install on your smartphone or other smart device, then it’s not worth investing in.

Remote Monitoring: A smartphone app should be offered, along with remote video monitoring directly from the phone. In other words, your kid can open the app from anywhere and see what activity is occurring inside their apartment.

Say No to Contracts and Fees

Companies that require their clients to sign contracts and pay additional setup fees are quickly becoming a thing of the past. With all the advances in home monitoring, there is no reason to lock your child into a contract. The better option is to get a video security system that is portable. When she moves out, she can take the equipment with her and never have to sign a new contract. This is one of the many reasons Blink is perfect for apartment renters.
