BACK TO SCHOOL: How Home Security Cameras Can Keep Your Kids Safe

Updated: Sep 3, 2022


Do you remember sneaking back home between classes with friends or maybe hiding in the bushes till everyone left for work and then skipping school? We don't either but we heard some stories :)

But seriously, it is nothing out of the ordinary for kids trying to find work arounds out of a school day or bring home some unwelcomed guests while your out. As we said they made for good stories but we know it is not the 70's and 80's anymore :(

As a parent these days, it has never been more important to know that your children are safe, and it has never been easier or more affordable. Just as technology speeds up our children's experiences, the same technology can help keep them within reach, no matter where you are.


A home security system or even just a video doorbell can give you peace of mind by allowing you to monitor your children's activities, both inside and outside the house. And if you have furry loved ones, you can always check on them for some self serenity as well. Here are some real-life benefits of using a home security cameras to keep an eye on your kids:


  • A smart doorbell or security system will let you know if they left for school on time. You don't have to depend on Mrs. Kravitz snitching on your kids in bliss, and these devices never sleep or miss a beat.

  • Know when your kids arrive home from school or heading back out to Mr. Wilsons house. With built in motion sensors you can get a notification every time someone approaches. You may want your kids to ring the bell as they come and go, for a quick chat or just seeing they are ok physically and walking the straight line. With these systems, you can also receive alerts if there is any unusual activity, giving you the ability to respond quickly in an emergency.


  • Whether you are home or out it always a plus to see whos knocking, it may be an imposter, masquerading as your utility provider and you will have footage of the incident. Who knows, maybe it's the tax man an axe man, or your neighbors Lennie & Squiggy and your just not in the mood. Any situation is more comfortable when you can answer and respond remotely.

  • Remember With these systems you have a live view of what is going on in and around your home. Remember when Wilson looked over the fence and called the fire department on 4/20 because he thought Tim the tool man's shed was on fire, Yeah well, that wont happen on your watch, and you will be able see if their are any skinny's dippin' in you pool when no one is watching.

  • Even if the Buellers had just one camera, Ferris would have never gotten a day off and Cameron would have never been able to take the Ferrari, the entire movie would be non existent! With any of these solutions you wont have to worry when someone has to stay home sick. Faking or not you will be able to make sure they are home resting and not taking over a German pride parade, Danke schoen for smart home technology!


Whether you're a busy parent or just looking for an extra layer of security, a home security camera system or video doorbell is a valuable investment. Keep these people and benefits in mind when choosing the right one for your needs and maybe help keep an eye out for your neighbors safety too, especially Fred and Ethel Mertz!
