The days are getting shorter and the stores are full of shoppers with lists that include things like crayons and glue sticks. It’s back to school time and that means latch-key kids. That means it’s also time to review the home safety rules with your children. Even older children need to be reminded that they should never open the door to strangers. In addition to talking to your family about safety—like always looking to see who is outside before opening the door—consider adding or upgrading a door viewer/peephole in the front door.
If your primary care giver is a grandparent, or anyone with vision problems, consider installing a peephole with a larger lens. http://www.peepholesecurity.com/ultravision-axl.htm
You don’t have to own a “standard” door to use a door viewer. If you have a thin paneled door consider something like a short peephole. http://www.peepholesecurity.com/miniview.htm
Even kids who are in your home business or commercial space after school should be protected by a quality door viewer. http://www.peepholesecurity.com/xtrascope.htm
In the excitement of the new school year, don’t forget to remind kids to be safe, and always look to see who’s outside the door.
