Being a mom can mean a lot of things. It goes without saying that the job comes with many responsibilities and can be very demanding. According to Alarm.com research, moms spend an average of 36 hours a week organizing, coaching, and managing their children. And, while we appreciate our moms for all that they do, a little help goes a long way. That’s where smart homes come in.
The home is the hub for most mothers and families; Consider it headquarters for an operation consisting of daily routines, after-school activities, social playdates, appointments, and more. It’s a lot to keep track of but with a few simple smart home devices and features, motherhood can become much more manageable.
Keep your home base safe & protected
Safety is likely at the top of every mom’s priority list when it comes to managing the family and home. Of course, there are some things that are difficult to control. That’s why we put smart measures in place to have our backs. With integrated fire and CO2 detectors powered by Alarm.com, you can rest assured that in the event on an emergency, you’ll be notified right away, and so will the authorities for a quick response.
Plus, with the help of HD, live-streaming security cameras, moms can keep eyes on their homes no matter where they are. Video Analytics can take it a step further and notify you of activity around your home based on customized preferences. So, you’ll know if a strange car is hanging around the driveaway, if a delivery has landed on your doorstep, or if an animal has gotten into the backyard!
Automate your routines with smart “scenes”
Getting through your day can run a lot smoother when your home is checking off your list for you. With smart “scenes,” moms can customize settings for integrated devices to run together and automate your routines. So, at the end of a long day, while you’re getting everyone ready to bed, you can easily run your “Good Night” scene with the tap of the button and have your thermostat cool down, porch lights turn on, TV’s off, doors locked, and alarm set for the night. Not a morning person? Set a scene to get the home and family up and running. From “Dinner Time” to “Movie Night” and even “Relaxation Time” – your home has your back.
Keep track of the family
Even with a small family, things can get hectic and moms could use help keeping track of everyone. With custom access codes set up with your alarm and smart locks, you can grant your older kids independence while still getting notifications of when they leave and arrive at home. Plus, indoor cameras throughout your home can help you check in when you aren’t home (perfect for dog or cat moms too!)
