How to make sure your Ring Alarm kit is kid-friendly

  1. Think about where in your home you would benefit most from placing contact window and door sensors. Consider home entrances that your kids have access to and if you would like to set the system to chime or alert you when they are used. Security systems are not only about protecting your home from the outside but also about protecting your kids on the inside from getting out if they shouldn't be.

  2. For installation, make sure you place all parts out of reach of children. Place sensors recommended height of 6 to 8 ft where you will be sure kids cannot tamper with them. Although you have the option of leaving the base station and keypad on a table, if you have small children in the house consider mounting these high out of their reach as well. For older children, you may want to place the keypad within their reach if you want them to operate it.

  3. Teach your children how to use your security system if you think they are ready. Let them hear what the alarm sounds like when it goes off so they can know what to expect when it (inevitably) gets triggered accidentally.

  4. Practice the different ways to arm and disarm the alarm. Different ways to control the alarm include: With Alexa using voice commands and a verbal four digit code, with the Ring App, with a code on the keypad. For help figuring out how to connect Alexa with Ring, take a look here.

  5. Set up an Amazon Echo device and connect Ring to it. This will allow you to arm and disarm Ring handsfree with voice commands. You will be able to control the alarm when your hands are full running out the door. Additionally, your kids can help control the alarm without running and tripping over anything to get to a keypad. Here are the some of the commands you can use to operate the alarm with your voice:

    • Alexa, arm Ring
    • Alexa, set Ring to Home / Away
    • Alexa, is Ring armed?
    • Alexa, disarm Ring

  6. Choose an alarm with a Panic button. Unfortunately, sometimes emergencies take place when mom and dad are not home, or mom and dad are the ones having the emergency. With the push of one button, even a kid not yet capable of calling 911 on a phone may call someone to the rescue. Set up your Ring with $10/month 24 hour surveillance service and you can have rescue officials at your house in no time to help.

Proper security should never be an afterthought, and it's important to find one that is easy to use for you and your children. These are some easy ways the Ring Alarm kit work for you and your family, you can live every day confident that your home and loved ones are safe.
