Hi there! I am a freelance writer who lives and breaths content on a daily basis. I consider myself to be a living paradox. An old soul trapped in a modern world. A self-proclaimed hopeless romantic and a professional over-thinker. I can't start anything unless I have my coffee. Writing has been and always will be my way of calming the storms in my heart and mind.

Keeping property and family safety is a foremost concern and a great deal for each one of us. No one would like to put the family members’ sake at risk. When homes are unprotected and imperfectly secured it is not exempted from any intrusions and messing up of one’s peace of mind and life. Usually, fateful events happen when least expected. Burglary is a grave threat to the members of the family aside from natural calamities and disasters that pose hazards. Other than losing material goods, a possibility of losing someone is imminent particularly if man and nature wave danger to the family.

The issue of house safety is hampered if permission for the technology to come into the house is available. These days, home safety technologies are far way complex than those of decades ago. Homeowners can throw their fears away; leave their houses with a sense of liberation and assurance those properties are free from burglaries and other sources of frets.

Burglar Alarms

Alarm systems are very useful in guarding homes. Apparently, burglars are less to attack homes with alarms for the fear of getting caught probably. With today’s technologies, home alarms are more remarkable and the likelihood of getting caught is too high, attacking such homes is like helping themselves to end up in prison cells.

Smoke Detectors

Detectors work and sense the same as a human does. When it can feel the heat, smell, taste smoke in the air, or hear any unusual noises, receivers inside the detector triggers the alarm. There are multi-criteria detectors that can “sense” danger quicker, avoid annoying alarms, and provide signals to emergency responders.

More researches are undertaken for more sophisticated detectors, which in the nearer years can direct heating, air conditioning, and ventilation systems for energy efficiency. In case of fire, the systems can direct the family to the best routes of escape rather than giving alarms.

Door and Window Sensors

Door and window sensors give confidence to homeowners that their doors are tightly closed and windows are secured. Modern door and window sensors have features that allow monitoring at a distance. Other than this, it notifies the occupants when doors and windows are opened or if there is any breach of entry, some sensors have the capacity to change home temperature when windows are opened or closed, and it is wireless and does not require electricity, very applicable for old homes or apartments.

Motion Sensors

With burglar alarms and motion sensors, burglary incidents are minimal. There are motion sensors that are designed to conveniently turn on the lights automatically when there is the detection of movements and turn off after a pre-set time period, plus it has a wide range of detection and immunity to any false triggering of the alarm.

Such technology is used for garages, driveways, porches, and outdoor living hubs. It is also applicable indoors.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Many may not have known but there are cases most are the deaths of those who inhaled carbon monoxide; a colorless and odorless gas. There is a danger of carbon monoxide poisoning and installing detectors will keep the home and family safe from problems and injuries.
