What is a HOMEBOUND™...And what can this safety device do for you?
HomeboundTM ensures that every passenger carrying school bus is checked at the end of each run :
- for a SLEEPING child
- for VANDALISM each bus run
- for any MESS left by passengers
- for any ARTICLES left on bus
- that the rear exit door is operable when option is selected
HOMEBOUND™ is programmed to ensure that the school bus driver is locked into the Child Safety Mode. It can be disarmed once all students have disembarked. Many school bus routes end miles from the depot. Why wait and waste time until the school bus has returned to discover a sleeping child. Just imagine the terror and anxiety (all preventable) for the child, parents, school officials, bus contractors, and police.
Programmed to use the existing rear exit warning system, your assurance that the exit system is operating as the law requires. A dedicated switch located in the rear can also be used to disarm the system.
Allows a mechanic or a driver of a non-school bus activity to by-pass the child safety check. This feature is very important for uninterrupted mechanical repairs and relocation of vehicles.
Provides a controlled minimum cool down period for any bus equipped with a turbocharger, resulting in reduced repair costs to expensive engines.
Programmed to turn the interior dome lights on during the child safety inspection. Lights automatically cancel when the driver exits the bus.
Programmed to blow the horn if the driver fails to disarm the system.
Covered by a two year limited warranty
Easy to install as original equipment or as a retro-fit.
Dash mounted with on board LED lights. Your constant assurance that HOMEBOUND™ child safety is on guard for you.
Programmed operator on board, Tattle-Tail™

- How does Homebound™ model 3000 work once installed ?

The School Bus can be used for normal functions without interruptions. The driver will arm the system by activating the overhead warning lights. When the passengers have all exited, the driver will turn off the ignition an internal buzzer will sound to remind the driver to check their bus. The driver must go to the rear of the bus to push the disarm switch. Disarm switch is either a dedicated rear switch or interconnection w/ existing rear switch. If the driver ignores or fails to disarm the at the end of a school run the internal buzzer will remain on. An optional relay kit and switch can be added to blow the horn when the passenger exit door is opened. An optional relay kit is available to turn the dome lights on when the ignition is turned off and will remain on until the disarm switch at the rear is pushed. Simple to install, providing the driver with a regimented child check procedure.

MODEL 4000 back to top

The most advanced & complete protection system on the market
Warranty 2 Years

Homebound™model 4000 is the ultimate child safety check device in the market place.

- Easy to install instruction are included with each unit.

- How does Homebound™model 4000 work once installed ?

The school bus can be used for normal functions without interruption.

Homebound™model 4000 provides the patented 5 minute arm delay allowing a mechanic or a driver of a non-school bus activity to by-pass the child safety check. This feature is very important for uninterrupted mechanical repairs or vehicle relocation.

When the driver activates the overhead warning lights, the arming circuitry counts down as long as engine is running after 5 minutes, Homebound™is armed.

The driver has two disarm choices once all students have disembarked:

1 - Even though the bus may be many miles from the bus depot, the driver can disarm the device by pushing the dash mounted switch on Homebound™to begin the disarming procedure, then within 30 seconds the driver must walk to the rear to push disarm switch.

2 - Upon returning to the bus depot, the driver can push the dash mounted switch to begin disarm procedure. The engine can be shut off or left on. Now the driver has 30 second to walk to the rear and push the rear disarm switch.

* Please note that the following will occur if the driver fails to complete the correct disarm procedure:

If the driver shuts the engine off and opens the front passenger door to exit, the horn will sound because the device is still armed. The only way to correct this error is to restart the bus and complete the correct disarm procedure.
