Bosma Home Security For
Families With Children
In one of our previous posts, we discussed how Bosma security products help keep those you love safe at home, with a particular interest in vulnerable populations. One of the most vulnerable populations are children, especially babies and toddlers. While welcoming home a new bundle of joy is a time for jubilation and celebration, for many parents it is a time overwhelmed with fear and worry. At Bosma, we want to help parents rest easier and keep children safe.
The home is full of hazards and dangers for curious toddlers and rebellious teens alike. From safe sleep newborn techniques to preventing home invasion and fire, to all the daily hazards, keeping your children safe is a full-time job! Luckily, Bosma is here to help! As a parent, you have so much to think and worry about, we want to help take some of the safety and protection measures off your plate.
In today’s post, we will review some of the challenges parents face keeping children of all ages safe at home, and what Bosma is doing to help. At Bosma, our goal is to offer peace of mind to parents and families no matter where they are. With our home security products, you can keep an eye on who matters most, from wherever you are.
Safety Hazards in the Home
Keeping children safe in the home will vary based on how old the child is and who they share their home with. If you have multiple children, you are already well aware that there is a big difference between baby proofing, toddler-proofing, and measures it takes to keep big kids and teens safe at home. Some general things to consider include:
- Sleep safety
- Stages of mobility — crawl, walk, etc. — sharp points, low counters, etc.
- Access to medications, cleaning products, poisons, etc.
- Falls off furniture or down stairs
- Finger or limb entrapment is small crevices
- Small parts/ choking hazards
- Access to water, electricity, heat/fire, etc.
- Exposure to various people
- Trusting of strangers
- Vulnerable targets of violence
How to Reduce Risk of Harm
Home should be the safest place your child goes, but it may take a little work to create the safest environment. As your child ages and matures, the safety interventions at home are sure to change. Additional safety measures should be taken in older homes, basement bedrooms with windows, and homes that feature pools.
- Practice safe sleep habits
- Remove trip hazards and install nightlights
- Use safety devices on doors, faucets, ovens, etc.
- Remove items that could be dangerous
- Practice fire evacuation drills and how to dial 9-1-1
- Reduce hot water temperatures
- Use baby gates and latch locks where needed
- Arrange furniture for safety and attach to wall if possible
- Decrease clutter and keep a clean environment
- Install locks or sensors on doors, windows, and cabinets
- Install window and door alarms as well as security cameras or baby monitors
- Use nanny cams to keep an eye on caregivers.
Which Bosma Products Can Help
At Bosma, we have created personal use home security products that work in tandem to offer complete home protection. Because our products are accessed using secure Wi-Fi, you can get notifications and access footage from wherever you are, in real-time. Here’s how our security products can be used to help keep your children safe at home and offer you peace of mind.
All of our cameras are great for keeping a watchful eye on sleeping babies and playful children from inside your home or while you’re out. Our X1 and XC security cameras can be paired with our window and door sensors and is Alexa-compatible for hands-free monitoring and remote control. To learn more about which one of our security cameras is the best option for you, read our other post on the topic.
We recommend the Aegis smart deadbolt for homeowners and renters everywhere to help control access to your home and limit the potential for “escape” by small children. The Aegis smart lock is easy to install and allows you to set who can enter your home or authorize remote entry for emergencies. Additionally, you’ll be notified if the deadbolt is unlocked.
The Sentry smart doorbell allows you or your children to answer the doorbell without ever opening the door! Or, disarm the chime so your child isn’t tempted to open the door for strangers. The Sentry smart doorbell helps reduce access to your children by strangers or ill-intentioned visitors.
Window & Door Sensors
Window and door sensors offer peace of mind to parents. You’ll get immediate notifications when a doorway or window is opened. Because the window and door sensors work in tandem with the X1 or XC security camera, you’ll also be able to see what is happening and use the two-way real talk feature to respond in real-time. Use the window and door sensors on exterior and interior doors, windows, and cabinets to ensure enhanced safety and respond immediately. This helps prevent curious wandering turning dangerous, child abductions or intruder invasions, and after-hour teen sneak-outs.

What Customers Are Saying
“At first, I wasn’t sure about the “Starlight” sensor that was advertised as I have never used a camera with color night vision. The Capsulecam’s implementation of the technology makes other security camera tech obsolete! Absolutely impressed with the build and quality. Highly Recommended!”
– Ay. (Amazon)
“I absolutely love this! We use it to watch our dogs while we are away from home. We can talk to them and take a picture or video of them. it has a two way speaker, where you can hear everything and they can hear you if you want to talk. the video is very crisp and clear! It has full color and night vision (which is black and white). the night vision is very clear too. There is about a 1 second time delay. Install and set up to my phone was very easy!! I love it! I would recommend this to anyone!”
“I use this when we travel as a baby monitor and also set it up when we leave our children with a babysitter. Works great!”
