Summer is around the corner and some parents, at certain times, may have to leave their kids at home unattended.

Affordable security cameras are helping alleviate some of the stress giving users the ability to see and talk to people in real-time.

Stores like Best Buy provide great options with in store help. Sky is the limit for online options. Cameras like the Wyze Cam provide full HD quality video, 2-way sound and easy set-up, that is accessible from your phone, at a very reasonable price - $20.

Lyndie Miller, mother of two, bought the Zmodo camera when her situation required her children to be home for a short period of time unattended.

"My son was going to be home alone for a brief period of time, and we never had this happen before our move," said Lyndie Miller. "We love the camera and that it gives us the ability to see and talk to our kids when we need to, and it's nice to know they are doing the right thing if we aren't there."

Detective Crum from the Killeen Police Department Burglary Unit warns that whenever you are buying a security system that most of the time 'you buy what you pay for.'

So even though you might not be in the home physically employing a home security device can help keep you in the loop.
