When we bought our house before having kids, many of our parent friends warned us that having the master bedroom on a different floor than the kids rooms would someday be a problem. But thanks to a home security system that gives me peace of mind, and video monitors that allow us to hear the kids if they need us, having the master bedroom a floor above the kids has really never been an issue for our family.
The boys were both eager to help dad install the new alarm. Cooper put on his yellow hard hat, and studied the “constructions” as he calls them. We gathered the few tools the instructions said we might need: a Philips head screwdriver, needle nose pliers, and wire strippers.
Scott started by removing our old smoke alarm and it’s mounting bracket.
The kids were on the ready as daddy’s helpers, but the whole installation process only took about five minutes and ended up only requiring a nothing more than a screwdriver.
