5 Technologies Everyone Needs To Stay Safe At Home
I hope you feel safe while relaxing in your home at night. Sadly, you’re only safe until something goes seriously wrong. You must do everything possible to avoid those situations, which is easier with the right technology.
Let’s look at a few tech gadgets designed to save your life. If you start using them immediately, it’s unlikely you’ll end up fighting for your life. You’ll find technologies that will help you deal with anything if you look around.
- Heat Detectors Don’t Need Smoke
Traditional alarms need to detect smoke before warning you about fires, which don’t happen straight away. You might still have time to escape, but will you be able to extinguish a fire before it grows?
If you use a THERMOFLEX® heat detector, it alerts you to fires once it detects heat, which happens much faster. It’s something you’ll appreciate if you have kids because it will take you longer to rescue them before escaping.
- Hang An Extinguisher On The Wall
The work of different types of fire alarm systems might be complicated, but you can always rely on fire extinguishers. It’s worth keeping one inside your home, which lets you stop fires as soon as they start.
You’ll need to take it to get serviced every 12 months. Always keep a fire blanket in your kitchen, especially if you’re a terrible cook. Once you starve fires of oxygen, they’ll disappear instantly.
- Water Leak Detectors Stop Floods
You probably don’t think small leaks are a big deal, but it’s a nightmare once pipes burst. Think about how fast you can fill an entire bathtub. What will happen when a pipe bursts at night while you’re sleeping?
It could cause a flood so bad your ceilings start to collapse, which could crush anyone underneath. Your family members could slip and fall if it’s dark. Water leak detectors will tell you when a pipe needs repaired.
- Smart Doorbells Scare People Away
Burglars don’t like breaking into homes with smart locks and doorbells. Locks are tough to open without causing a scene, plus they’ll be caught on camera. Most intruders will move onto an easier target down the street.
It’s also great when strangers ring your doorbell at night. Why would you open the door unless you know who is outside? You’ll be able to see who is at your door while lying on the couch, and you can press a button to let them in.
- Detect CO And Natural Gas ASAP
CO detectors will save your life if there is too much carbon dioxide in your home. You won’t have a clue it’s there until it’s too late because it’s odorless, so an alarm is the only thing that can warn you it’s lurking.
The best alarms will test for natural gas leaks, which is just as scary. When you read about gas explosions, it’s usually because of leaks igniting. Choose one that sends alerts to your phone in case you’re out.
Your Home Isn’t Very Dangerous
