Latest News: Stay ahead of the curve
In the United States, over 2 million home burglaries are reported each year, with a home burglary taking place once every 13 seconds. Time how long it takes you to read this short blog post. How many burglaries happened during those few minutes?
Shocking, right? But perhaps not as shocking as this statistic: Only about 10% of Americans live in homes with home security systems. Given that homes with home security are much less likely to be broken into, why do so few people have home security systems?
Even burglars say home security systems deter burglars
Homes without a security system are three times more likely to get broken into and most burglars say they avoid homes with obvious home security systems, such as a yard sign out front. If we do the math, we find out that 90% of the homes in the U.S. are three times more vulnerable than the other 10%–which probably makes the other 10% even safer because burglars have plenty of unprotected houses to choose from!
You’ve probably heard the ADT slogan about the yard sign being a line in the sand, and we’ve written about the power of that statement in another blog post. When you realize that only 10% of homes are protected and how much of a deterrent that protection provides, you can see that that yard sign wins because it wins the battle upfront when the burglar passes on by.
If you’ve been thinking about a home security system and you’re still undecided about whether or not to make the investment, maybe it’s time to be ahead of the curve and join the minority that has a home security system—before you unwillingly become part of the group that has already been burglarized.
The costs of a home burglary: more than you think
A home security system does not have to be an expensive investment, and when you compare the costs of the peace of mind to the potential costs of a burglary, all of a sudden it seems cheap. Statistics say the average burglary costs a homeowner about $2,000 in lost goods. That might not sound like much, but that’s because it doesn’t take into account other costs, including:
- The costs of replacing broken doors, windows or doorjambs
- The trauma of the invasion, which can take years to recover from
- The irreplaceable value of family heirlooms
- A higher homeowner’s insurance premium
Without a home security system and your own “line in the sand” in the form of a home security sign in the front yard, your home ranks among the 90% of American homes that lack that protection—and it’s much more appealing to burglars as a result. Wouldn’t you rather stay ahead of that curve and move on into the 10%?
Safety Tip: Keep Your Child Safe at Home
- Get the Basics Down
Start with the basic safety tips that everyone in the home can benefit from. When was the last time you checked your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms? What about your fire extinguishers? Check for things like frayed wires or cords that might cause people to trip. You should also check you’re not overloading any outlets either.
From there you should be thinking about security too. Are your locks still functioning properly on your doors and windows? You might want to think about investing in a home security system as well.
These things are all child safety common sense tips, but we can get into a habit of letting standards slip. A baby should be a wake-up call to address anything you’ve been putting off.
- Baby-Proof Your Home
Now it’s time to get your house sorted for the baby itself. Smaller, curious, and unfortunately lacking a strong sense of danger, children bring their own unique child safety issues.
The kitchen is a good place to start considering how many child safety dangers you can eliminate. Aside from ensuring you never leave things like knives lying around, you’ll want to reorganize. Think about what you’re keeping in lower cupboards that kids can get into. Move any of the following out of reach:
- Chemical products
- Sharp objects
- Suffocation hazards like plastic bags
- Containers with vitamins, minerals, or spices
Adding latches to your drawers and cupboards should be considered too. Also be wary of appliances being left plugged in. Toasters, blenders, or anything of the sort should be unplugged with their cords tucked away. You should also get stove-knob covers too.
Sharp corners on furniture is a big one to look out for all over the house. Softening these up with things like corner guards means if your child has a tumble they won’t seriously hurt themselves on the living room table. Also think about items such as a bookcases, TVs, and anything else that could fall over without too much effort. Ensure anything that should be secured to the wall is secured to the wall.
- Make Their Room Safe
This child safety tip could easily be the most important. Parents need to think about the baby’s nursery. There will be lots of items in here unique to this room, so it needs its own approach. The US government deems drop-side cribs as unsafe, while the slats should be at most 2 3/8 inches apart. Keep this in mind if a relative offers you a crib as it might not be up to standard.
Avoid filling the crib with blankets and stuffed animals. As much as the baby may love them, they are a suffocation hazard. Be wary of mobiles too—any small parts could come off and risk choking your baby.
Take a look at the storage in your child’s room. A toy box with a lid is an easy way to get some injured fingers. Use an open box instead. For any storage furniture that does go in the room, make sure it’s properly secured at all times.
- Keep the Bathroom Safe
As a room we use multiple times a day, it’s easy to forget just how dangerous a bathroom can be for a baby.
The main thing is to never leave your baby unattended in the bathroom. The horror stories about drownings in incredibly shallow water are all too true. When it’s time for a bath, make sure your time is free so you won’t be tempted to leave the room even for a second.
Keeping with bath time, be sure to check the temperature of the water. Young kids have much more tender skin than adults so it takes a lot less to severely burn them. You should set your water heater to go no higher than 120°F to avoid any issues, but even then make sure you check. Buy a thermometer so that you can always be sure.
And just like every other room, ensure any electrical cables are tucked away while the appliances themselves are unplugged. You’ll also want to use no slip mats to avoid any painful falls. This is one child safety tip you do not want to slack off on.
- Keep Your Baby in Sight
Of course this isn’t possible at all times or even necessary. No one is calling for parents to take shifts to keep a watchful eye over their sleeping baby every night. That’s what we have baby monitors for. But, consider installing security cameras in your home. This means you can always see what your baby is up to no matter where you are. It’s not a substitute for being there in person, but it does offer some peace of mind.
