Safety Tip: Exterior Maintenance
Part of having a storm safety plan in the home is removing the dangers that sit outside your home. Here are some of our top tips from ADT:
- Keep on top of yard maintenance (e.g. trim tree branches to limit breakages).
- Secure or remove any loose items from the yard. It may be summer but it is safer to take down and pack away play items such as slides, a swing frame or trampoline as well as outdoor ornaments.
- Make sure you don’t have any loose tiles as these could fall.
- Be mindful of your trashcan as you do not want garbage thrown across your lawn.
Braving the Storm
Once you’ve finished your preparations, it’s very important to stay calm when a storm actually hits. Keep a few basic storm safety precautions in mind. Some of the essential things to remember include:
- DON’T GO OUTSIDE! This should be an obvious storm safety tip; needless to say always wait until the storm has cleared and the local weather has announced that it is officially safe to do so.
- Stay away from windows – these could break at any moment.
- Steer clear of electrical wiring, particularly if there is water damage.
- Avoid taking a shower or bath – it is more important to stay safe than bathe.
After the Storm
Once the storm has settled, you still need to be aware of the dangers. When it’s officially safe to leave your house, stay alert and be careful of the hazards we’ve listed below:
- Never drive through a flooded roadway. Do not think “It will be OK” as you cannot predict how deep the water may be and may end up stranded.
- Keep clear of areas that have been hit badly by the storm. There is still the risk of falling debris.
- Continue to listen to NOAA Weather Radio or to local radio and television stations for updated information or instructions.
- Be aware of others. Remember to help people who may require special assistance, such as infants, children and the elderly or disabled.
- Stay away from downed power lines and report them immediately.
- Watch your animals closely. Keep them in your control at all times. They are likely to have been distressed by the storm also.
News: Wireless vs Wired Security Systems
The number of households in the U.S. with a home security system hasn’t changed much in the past 10 years. In 2008, 33.47 million people said they own a home with a home security system. In 2017, that number was 35.44—which might seem like a significant increase except has peaked at much higher and gone down, although it looks like it might be trending up again.
What has changed is the type of home security people have. Older systems were hardwired and today’s home security and automation systems tend to be wireless—although they have the same basic features and components.
Our world is wireless
In today’s wireless world, we kind of expect everything to be wireless. We want WiFi everywhere and always-on access to the Internet-enabled apps on our smart phones. It’s only natural that we’re going to want wireless home security too.
A wireless home security solution is not the obvious first choice, however, if you’re shopping around and debating between wireless and hardwired. There are times when a hardwired solution is the way to go. For most of us, that’s not the case and a wireless home security system makes the most sense.
Ways it’s wireless
When talking about home security systems, wireless has two meanings. The system itself is wireless within your home, relying on WiFi to work. And the system is remotely accessible to you, again via WiFi.
A wireless home security system is much easier to install because it has—you guessed it—no wires. No drilling is required, no wires must be worked into and snaked through walls to come out a different hole elsewhere in the house. A wireless home security system requires the same number of wires as your wireless phone: zero.
That means you can easily expand your home security system later, if you want to. You can add features, and you can add more coverage, say to your garage or another outbuilding, or with more video cameras outside.
Where to find wireless
If you’re either upgrading your current home security system or you’re moving into a new home and buying one for the first time, you might wonder whom to trust. After all, every home security vendor out there seems like a reputable one, right? You can check consumer reviews to see if they are as good as they claim to be. For example, SafeStreets USA scores 7.6 out of 10 according to reviews at Best Company. Since that’s based on almost 150 consumer reviews, that’s a trustworthy score.
Whether you decide hardwired or wireless home security works best for your home, you’re taking steps to protect it, and you can do so with peace of mind when you choose a well-rated vendor with a strong reputation.
