Help Keep Kids Safe on Halloween with these Apps and Accessories
You get to dress up, explore the neighborhood…at night…and then gorge yourself on candy. Unfortunately, the holiday isn’t quite as enjoyable for the parents. Instead, the adults are worried about sending the little ones off in the dark… by themselves. Whether you are planning to attend the trick-or-treat trek or stay at home to wait for your monsters to return, we have a few apps and accessories that might help to make the holiday as safe and stress free as possible.
Do the little darlings have a cell phone? Try downloading AT&T Family Map on their phone and your phone before trick-or-treating. This technology will show the location of your child on an interactive map and send their location by text or email. Compatible with almost any phone type, click here to check it out and begin your trial just before Halloween!
When you head out on All Hallows’ Eve, are there other family members staying behind to answer the door? Or maybe you are going to a Halloween party and your kids are at home with the nanny. Using AT&T Digital Life® technology you can maintain a close eye on your humble abode using the 24/7 professional monitoring dashboard app to help keep everyone at home protected.
Halloween can bring out some seedy characters. Be proactive and download the EyeGoes Personal Security Camera on your kids’ phones - available for download on iTunes and Google Play. The app turns your smartphone into your personal security camera and emergency notification system. You can instantly record and share emergency video and audio with your trusted loved ones.
If your household includes terrifying teenagers, try downloading the iStaySafe app. When the teens head out, they can “check-in” once they are at the party by sending a pic which will trigger a text/email that will include a map with the exact location of where the photo was taken. Teens can also set alarms for check-in reminders to keep parents at ease.
