Ways For Empty Nesters To Feel Better About Their Child's Safety

August 22nd, 2019

Even when Houston kiddos grow up and move out of their parents' home, the guardians still feel as if they need to protect them. After all, parenthood is a lifelong thing. It doesn't stop just because the child turns 18 or 21 and rents an apartment or house. However, trying to control all aspects of their life can prove to be a big no-no. They will likely push back, and instead of being involved and knowing whether the young adult is safe or not, it is highly likely that moms and dads may only see them every great once in a while. Then again, if the relationship gets strained, the parties might not even talk on the phone very often. 

There are some things empty nesters can do to ensure their children remain safe in their new places though. The tactics probably won't infuriate the kiddos as they don't infringe upon their newfound freedoms. So, curious Houston parents should consider taking these measures to assure that their kids remain safely out of harm's way without becoming a nuisance. 

Firstly, Address Any Security Issues

When the young adult finally finds the perfect place, parents should do a walkthrough of the location with them. The parties need to be on the lookout for particular problems and make a list. Afterward, they should contact the management company or landlord to make the repairs. Concerns that are worth mentioning include but are not limited to...

  • Door And Window Locks That Don't Latch Correctly

  • Overgrown Landscaping, Which Can Serve As A Criminal's Hiding Spot

  • Blown Light Bulbs In Hallways And At Entrances

Hook The New Flat Up With A Security System

Surveillance cameras, motion sensors, and alarms deter criminals. According to an article published on safewise.com, out of 400 incarcerated men and women, 60-percent said they would look for a security system before robbing a home. Hence, this action will provide both the guardians and young adult with peace of mind. It is a good idea to select a company that offers 24/7 monitoring. If a burglar or trespasser breaches the perimeter, law enforcement officials will be contacted and arrive on the scene promptly. 

Should the perpetrator flee before the police get there, they can review the camera footage to identify the suspect and make an arrest. Hence, that will be one more criminal off the streets. Then, the parents and child won't have to worry about them returning to the scene of the crime. 

Take The Time To Meet The Neighbors

Getting to know the new neighbors is not always an easy task. Making door-to-door introductions can be a little bit intimidating and nerve-racking. Thus, parents should offer to go with their child on this endeavor. The additional support can give them the confidence that they need to introduce themselves and start a conversation. These acquaintances can keep an eye on the unit when the kiddo is at home or away. After they notice that something isn't quite right, they will contact the authorities to investigate the situation.

"Steve I just wanted to thank you and your partner Ray Kindsfather for the fine work you men did installing the security cameras around my home. The quality of the pictures is excellent, the clarity in day or infrared mode is exactly what I was looking for. What good is a camera if you can't identify the person and these cameras will greatly assist the police in identifying a perpetrator. The computer side of the job is easy and fast with very little adjustment time for me in finding what I want to see. Software and hardware get A+++++ no doubt about. The Ring is equally easy to use and the quality of the camera is equally strong. The installation was clean and fast. You maintain a clean site, it’s like you were never here. You answered all my questions with pin point accuracy. Integrity suits you well. Your answers were honest and to the point. Refreshing in today’s world. All and all you and Ray make a strong team at DWS Technology LLC. I have no problem recommending you to friend or family, home or business. God bless you both with your business. I will call you for future installations. "

"Ray, in reviewing several different security cameras there were many good products, but none met my criteria of clarity and no long-term contract. Raymond, you showed me one product that caught my attention with the clarity and distance viewing that I could not get with other systems. The zoom after a few feet became distorted with the other systems but with the Alibi NVR package you demoed, we could zoom in and out with clarity which made this product stand out from all the rest. The NVR system is so simple, in fact, anyone can configure the system to suit their needs. You can monitor your home from your smartphone or tablet and having security cameras makes it a great deterrent for criminal activity. DWS Technology delivered as promised! Your installation crew worked clean and treated my home as if it was their own. Great attention to detail! I will recommend DWS Technology to anyone! Great job guys!"
