Skylinknet Easy Setup and the system was responsive.
No Terminators were harmed in the making of this review. When I first examined the attractive 5 3/8 inches wide by 5 3/8 inches long by 4 15/16 inches thick SkyLinkNet Home Automation Kit, I could not separate the name from the fictitious Skynet, from The Terminator movies. Knowing the power of advertising, I suspect that the company used name recognition as an added benefit to their packaging. The top panel of the cube-like packaging showed a series of nine blue icons with white images within them surrounded by a central hub. A hand holding a smartphone on your left provided a sense of power and system control. Using buzzwords like Home Automation, Alarm System, Video Monitoring and Home control, my brain navigated back to the movie tie-in. [···]

It is the end of August and that means summer vacations are coming to an end for most kids and everyone is getting ready to go back to school.
Here are few simple tips:
Make sure the children know the phone number of their parents or guardians, home address and how to dial 9-1-1 during an emergency.
Use the same route everyday if your children are walking to school and avoid shortcuts. Always cross the street at an intersection. Try to walk to school with other students.
Do not talk to strangers and keep a distance between themselves and anyone who tries to approach them. Teach your children to report any incidents to parents or teacher.
No phones while walking to school. Children need to pay close attention to their surroundings.
Always wear a helmet when riding a bike and try to ride with someone else to school.
SkylinkNet can give you peace of mind by allowing your child to disarm the alarm system when home and notifies you that your child has arrived, and with a video camera, you can see they are home safely.
We hope you find these tips useful and share them with your child, friends, and have a wonderful school year ahead.
