Cords have become old-fashioned now. Things of the past. Extinct. In the face of a new ‘wireless’ technology which eliminates their need. From laptops to vacuum cleaners, more and more wireless tech-gear is being introduced today to completely remove the hassle of the wires.
Home security has also incorporated this technology in its ambit, by manufacturing sensors which need not be manually hardwired into the control panel of a house. These monitoring devices are connected to a smartphone, remotely controlled from there and operated over a wireless frequency. They are easily movable, adjustable and flexible too. You don’t need professional help to alter their positions. Plus, if you attach a sophisticated alarm system to the sensors, then they’ll blare a loud sound every time a break-in occurs.
Therefore, you absolutely need to get your hands on wireless home security sensors. Oh, you already have? Then, the next step is finding the right places around the house to install these sensors. And don’t just think of the doors and windows, which are an obvious priority. Go for other prime places which need a cover of protection from wily burglars, like the spots mentioned below:
Outdoor Storage Area
Not everything can fit inside your house, and cramming stuff is so last season. ‘Clean, organized and minimal’ is the word of the day. What you can do is store the oversized objects in a shed right outside your house. Things like sports gear, generator, heavy toolkits, bikes, motors, etc. can easily be stored away. However, the fact that these lie on the exterior of your house makes them doubly favorable for robbers. So, prevent any outdoor burglaries from happening by installing wireless security sensors around the storage area, controlling them directly from your smartphone and getting the alert of the slightest intrusion.
Home Entertainment Unit
I know how much you look forward to those exclusive family movie nights, when you all get together in the movie room, set up with the latest 3D gear, home theatre audio-visual system, the large-screen HDTV that you just bought, a subscription to the popular Spectrum cable TV packages and plans, and not to mention, the softest couches ever. It’s one of the purest joys of life, and if you’d like to maintain that, install wireless security sensors around the equipment. Why? Because one, it is a pretty expensive tech-gear which can easily attract burglars to your house. Two, you can keep an eye on the unit, whether it is being surreptitiously used by your naughty teenage children in your absence or not. So, for safety purposes, go for the sensors.
You know when you have those family gatherings on special occasions and you always end up finding your liquor cabinet empty? This frustrates you to the highest degree, because the guests take them out on their own, regardless of the fact that you had stored certain expensive bottles for personal use only. Now, when you adjust the cabinet door with a wireless security sensor, you’d be able to find out exactly when the door’s opened and when your collection is tampered with. Not only this, if you’ve got children in the house, an alarmed sensor on the wine cabinet can prevent them from opening it and doing under-age drinking while you’re out.
If you work from home, then you’d obviously have a whole room devoted to the official stuff, right? It would contain expensive laptops, VOIP gear, projector, confidential personal security files, financial records, credit reports and other important things etc. If any of these went into the wrong hands or got stolen by housebreakers, the consequences could potentially destroy you. So, protect your office equipment by installing wireless security sensors on the door, the file cabinets and other areas of entry. This way, you’d instantly know if someone’s broken in, and even be able to catch them red-handed.
Citizens who are relatively more safety-conscious and security-concerned nearly always have a gun or two in the house. Why? Because of the constantly rising rate of burglaries, invasions and other house-related crimes. Such people want to ensure that their loved ones are safe and secure at all costs. But they also know that having a gun in the house could be potentially dangerous as well. If the firearm accidentally went into the hands of the children, then they might hurt themselves and others too. Plus, burglars could steal in and use that very firearm against the owners. So, fixating the firearm storage cabinet with wireless security sensors adds a layer of surveillance and protection.
Whether you’ve already invested in wireless sensors or are in the process of doing so, do keep the aforementioned crannies and nooks in your mind when you’re installing them in order to stay aware & secure 24/7.
