Parents of older children often have no choice but to let their kids spend the afternoon and early evening at home alone. Young teens who ride the school bus home, usually arrive several hours before they’re parents get home, and it can be a nerve wracking time for mom and dad. Thankfully, technology has finally given families a new way for children to stay protected when parents aren’t there. Smart locks, doorbells, and other high tech devices are now an affordable and practical way to stay in control of your home security, even when you’re away.

Still not sure how you and your loved ones can benefit from smart locks, here are just a few of the ways that these innovative devices can offer safety and protection from criminals.
You can lock, unlock and monitor your locks and other smart security devices via a smart phone app. That means you can let your children into the house from work or while sitting in traffic, and you can keep unwanted guests out, all with the push of a button.
Lost keys is one of the worst problems that parents and older children face when parents get home later in the day. Traditionally, if your preteen leaves their key at school, or lost it walking home from the bus stop, they may be locked out of their home. Common solutions to this problem, such as hiding a spare under the door mat, or handing out keys to neighbors and asking them for help in an urgent situation could put your children at risk. Many criminals know where to look for spare keys and your neighbors may not be as trustworthy as they appear. Smart locks require no keys at all. You can add your children to the smart locks system if they have their own cell phone, or you can open the locks yourself when they get home. You’ll never have to worry about your son or daughter being stuck on the front porch.
After your children make their way safely inside the home, there are other worries to contend with. Many burglars target homes in the late afternoon, when they assume the owner is at work and there’s no car in the driveway. Your smart lock will alert you anytime someone approaches the door. Whether it’s the mailman, your spouse, your teenager’s friends or a potential thief, you will be notified immediately, so you can stay remain in control of your home’s protection at all times.
Many smart locks will also keep track of who opens the door, and will take note of the time. Parents may appreciate staying aware of the times and instances when their older teenagers leave the house and come back home. Sneaking out of the house at night, arriving past curfew or having friends over during your weekend business trip won’t occur without you knowing about it.
