A Back-To-School Checklist

If you're already a user, here's how to do it.

1: Add a Smart Lock: Keys are small and easy to lose. Wait—you hid a spare key under a planter? That's a solution that a burglar will thank you for. A better way to go is a smart lock for your front door. It's a permanent solution to lost (and poorly-hidden) keys. They open with easy to remember four-digit codes or from anywhere with our smartphone app. 

2: Set Up User Codes: User codes don't just open doors, though. They provide peace of mind, even when the security system is disarmed. With your smart lock integrated into your Smart Home Security system, your child's user code can trigger an instant alert when they use it. 

3: Add an Image Sensor: An image sensor is a motion sensor with an onboard camera that lets you visually verify who's coming in and out of your home. Positioned in the hallway overlooking the front door, it can take a snapshot right when your kids arrive home so you can rest assured that they're following your rules on after-school guests. 

4: Program Your Smart Thermostat: You can keep more control over the temperature settings in your home, even when you're not there. Set a schedule on your Alarm.com Smart Thermostat and create an alert so you'll know if anyone makes an adjustment on the thermostat. You can even restrict temperature changes so they can only be made from the mobile app, not the device.
