How to keep your kids safe with home security systems

As any parent knows, ensuring the safety of our children is a top priority in this day and age. While we may sound biassed, one of the most effective ways to safeguard your family is by investing in a reliable home security system. At Midland Alarm Services, we understand the importance of protecting what matters most to you. With over 35 years of industry experience, we are dedicated to providing cutting-edge solutions that put you in control of your home's security. In this blog, we'll explore the essential tips for securing your home with your children in mind.

Understanding the Importance of Home Security

Before delving into specific security measures, let's first acknowledge why home security is paramount, especially when it comes to safeguarding our children. Unfortunately, the risks of living in an insecure home extend beyond mere property theft. Children, in particular, are vulnerable to various dangers, including break-ins, vandalism, and even potential harm from intruders. By investing in a robust home security system, you not only deter criminals but also gain invaluable peace of mind knowing that your loved ones are safe and protected.

Choosing a Home Security System with Children in Mind

When it comes to securing your home with children in mind, several key strategies can significantly enhance your family's safety:

- Installing CCTV Cameras: Strategically placing CCTV cameras around your property allows you to keep a vigilant eye on any suspicious activity, both indoors and outdoors.

- Visible Burglar Alarms: Our state-of-the-art burglar alarms serve as a powerful deterrent to potential intruders, research shows that having a visible bell box can make you up to 75% safer!

- Perimeter Protection: By implementing perimeter protection measures such as shock sensors on vulnerable entry points and outdoor lighting, you create a secure zone around your home, minimising the risk of unauthorised access.

- Remote Monitoring: Being able to control your home security system from anywhere is key! We believe in empowering our customers by putting the power in their hands. Think about it, who will respond the fastest to your alarm going off? The answer is YOU! That’s why a system that notifies you instantly if anything occurs at your property is the most ideal home security option for families.

- Educating Your Children: Equally important is educating your children about home safety practices, including how to operate security systems and what to do in case of an emergency.

Why All Parents Should Invest in a Home Security System

Home Security Systems Provide Peace of Mind

Nothing is worse than living with the anxiety of not knowing whether your kids are safe or not. Even for older children, whether it be work or chores, we can’t always be home 24/7 to keep an eye on them. Fortunately, a home security system can provide parents with the peace of mind that their loved ones are protected. You can customise your system to your unique family's needs by adding motion detectors, camera sensors, shock sensors and apps that provide real-time monitoring of your home. 

One of the most invaluable features that we recommend to all families are perimeter protection products such as shock sensors. Say you’re a husband and father working away with your wife and children at home, you want a system that will notify you and trigger the loud alarm system to scare off intruders BEFORE they gain entry to your home. By placing shock sensors on vulnerable entry points such as patio doors and windows, you can set the alarm while your family is still inside the house knowing that if anyone tried to tamper with these entry points (ie picking a lock or forced entry), the alarm would go off and scare them away. 

Home Security Systems Deter Intruders

The point here though is that the alarm system must be VISIBLE! Many home security products are popping up now that don’t include a visible bell box! These systems might be attractive if you’re on a budget as they can be less expensive but it is to the detriment of your home’s security. A visible bell box is a sign to intruders that your home is protected and is known to make your home way less of a target than one without a visible system. When you’re shopping around for the best home security system for your family, do not overlook the importance of a visible bell box!
