Back To School Safety Tips from GHS rev3

GHS Safety Tip #4:

See your kids get home from school before you get there with 24/7 Remote Access

Use GHS’ 24/7 Remote Access smartphone App to find out when:

  • The kids get home from school.
  • The housekeeper arrives and leaves.
  • The dog walker comes (or forgets to!).
  • A water leak erupts in the laundry room.
  • The garage door is left open for too long.
  • The liquor cabinet or medicine cabinet opens.
  • The pool gate is left open.
  • A safe or a sensitive cabinet is compromised.
  • A temperature (or thermostat) setting is changed.

With GHS, you’ll also have immediate knowledge when someone enters or leaves your home, logs into your account, or if your system is disarmed and by whom.
