In our last blog, we shared “10 Security Tips for Older Children Who Stay Home Alone” and touched on helpful ways your monitored security service, smart home system, and mobile security app can increase the safety of your children after school. The ability to check in and remotely control doors, locks, lights and more using your smartphone, laptop or connected products is extremely convenient, saving you time and worry year round.

A Mobile Security App & Remote Monitoring Provide Easy, Smart Security
