It’s Valentine’s Day — and for many families in South Carolina that means hiring a babysitter or asking a friend or family member to watch their kids while they’re out.
Here are a few quick safety tips to ensure your kids are safe before you head out on your date:
Essential to making sure your kids are always safe while you’re out is establishing lines of communication that they or the babysitter can reach you on while you’re out.
Whether its by phone, text, email, Facebook chat or any other forms of communication your family prefers, make sure that you have each listed and accessible to your kids/babysitter before heading out on your date.
Before heading out, do a quick tour of your house to make sure all of the doors and windows are properly closed and fastened, especially if you live in a larger home. Forgetting a bathroom or attic window is open may leave your home vulnerable to unwanted guests.
If you have a home security system make sure that each person that needs to activate or deactivate the alarm has the proper code.
Also, if you’re like many of our clients, use your home security camera system and Total Connect to quickly access your camera feed so you can always keep an eye on what’s going on in your home.
We hope everyone has a special Valentine’s Day and by remembering these quick security tips, you’ll have Peace of Mind while you’re spending time with your loved one.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
