BrickHouse Security Child Safety Guide Helpful Hints for Protecting What Matters Most
The time, worry, and sleepless nights it takes to raise a child are staggering. Luckily, BrickHouse Security offers a wide variety of solutions that can alleviate some of the worry and stress of parenting -- and help you rest easier knowing that your child is OK in most any situation.
Locators and Alerts
Child locators and emergency alerts offer a great low-cost way to monitor your children in public places -- or in and around your home. Bringing a child to the mall or a public event is always nerve-wracking for a parent. If you lose focus for an instant, your child could wander off, leaving you panicked and afraid for the worst. BrickHouse offers a number of locator devices that attach easily to your child's wrist, backpack, or any article of clothing and, with the push of a button on a key chain that you carry, alert you to their presence in an instant. Some devices will even alert you if your child strays beyond a certain range away from the parent transmitter.
The BrickHouse Swimming Pool Alarm is great for children who are new to swimming. As a parent, if you're not paying attention for a second, a pool can be a terrible misadventure for a child who isn't the strongest swimmer. This wristband attaches firmly to your child's arm and, if the device becomes submerged, sounds an alarm, alerting anyone in proximity that there may be a child in danger. Feel safe leaving your child at a pool party knowing that if they're in harm's way, the Swimming Pool Alarm will notify someone who can help.
Letting your kids out of your sight for the first time is always a risk, but with a GPS tracking device, that risk can be minimized. BrickHouse Security offers a number of tiny tracking devices capable of showing you, in real time, exactly where your children are. The Spark Nano can be placed in a child's backpack, and from the convenience of your PC or mobile device, you can see exactly where they are at all times. You can even receive an alert via email or text if your child enters or exits a predefined area. If your child ends up getting lost on the way home, you'll know in an instant, and be able to locate them quickly and easily. The Nano features an extremely long 3-week battery life, so if your child goes on a school camping trip or visits your extended family, you can still keep track of their location from anywhere you are.
The Lok8u is a waterproof wristwatch that allows youi to find your child at a moment's notice. Unlike many other real-time tracking devices, the LOK8u's tamper-proof locking mechanism will send you an alert via text or email if the watch is removed. This locator will also send you immediate location updates simply by texting "Where R U" to the device's service provider.
Nannies, au pairs, and babysitters can be lifesavers; they allow you to be away from your kids while knowing that they're safe. But, leaving your children in the care of a relative stranger can be a tough decision. A nanny cam is a great way to know the quality of the care your children are receiving when you're not around. Disguised as anything from a teddy bear, to an alarm clock, to a digital picture frame, a covert nanny cam can be set up easily in any room of the house, ensuring your child's safety. These high-tech surveillance tools can be set up to record based on motion, so the moment your babysitter enters the room, you'll be able to see exactly how your child is treated. Nanny cams are the best way to alleviate the doubt of leaving your child in the care of someone else, because you actually get to see how your child is being cared for when your babysitter doesn't know he/she is being watched.
