Are you getting ready to welcome a bundle of joy into your family? Did a new addition recently rock your world? If so you’ve probably started thinking about your home in a new way with newly illuminated hazards and areas of concern. From the moment your child is born, your life and home will never be the same and you might be wondering, how can I help keep this tiny human safe?
Having home security set up can add peace-of-mind to your life as a new parent. Knowing that a home is broken into once every 18.2 seconds (according to 2014 FBI stats)is even scarier to think about since a burglary could happen while your child is in your home.
Home security and monitoring can have other benefits as well. One of our customers relayed a story about how they used their Guardian keypad to get emergency help.
When I was awakened one morning by the sound of my baby gasping for air, my first instinct was to press the Guardian keypad. It was the right thing to do. In just a few minutes, the paramedics were at our door – the police came too!
It’s comforting to know that with the touch of a button, you can trigger a response from the Guardian monitoring center who is able to get the proper authorities notified. Our 24/7 monitoring center is award-winning. Adding monitored smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and heat detectors means that authorities will be notified of a potentially dangerous situation as well. As a result, you can focus on your new child knowing that our monitoring center is helping keep a watchful eye on things.
You can also use an indoor camera along with your baby monitor so you can look in if you think you hear stirring in the nursery. Live look-in via your Internet-connected smartphone is a handy feature in the middle of the night when you are trying to decide if you need to go check on the baby.
When it comes down to it, you should really consider home security as a part of getting the house ready for baby. Even if you already have a system, you might want to contact your home security company to discuss any adjustments you might need to make.
