My parents bought a small house not far from me. I was thrilled that they were moving so close because prior to the move, they were nearly 900 miles away. Upon retirement, they wanted to be closer to their grandchildren, and it did not take them long to sell their house and buy this one here. It has everything they wanted too, with the exception of an ADT security system. They had one in their old house, and they didn’t feel safe without having one here. I had told them that the town is very safe, and crime just doesn’t exist in these parts.
The look they gave me made me feel like I was seven years old again. They explained that crime can happen anywhere, even in our little corner of the world. Just because it hasn’t doesn’t mean that we should become lackadaisical about it. They told me all the benefits of having an ADT security system, and I was sold on the idea. Not just for getting them one either, because I wanted one at my house too by the time they were done telling me all they can do with their own system.
My parents are not the typical senior citizens who are afraid of technology. They embrace it, which means they have their home security system at their fingertips, no matter if they are at home, my house, or even a thousand miles away. They are able to control lights in the house, move cameras, view videos, control their temperature, and even turn on and off appliances that they have set up to do that. I was simply amazed, and I had my own system installed the same day they had theirs installed. I have to chuckle thinking about it, because I am supposed to be the tech savvy one in the family!
