Tip of the week: Pets
Staying Cool and Keeping Warm
One of the main concerns when leaving your pet at home during extreme weather is how they would fare in sweltering heat or the blisteringly cold. Heat, especially, can put your canine friend at risk. Did you know that a dog is susceptible to heat stroke when the heat index reaches 105° F? And that can be reached during 90° F weather?
In the past, pet owners would simply set the thermostat before they left for the day and hope for the best regardless of rising temperatures and the inherent inconsistencies of their systems.
Smart thermostats are great for pet safety. These devices enable you to take full control of the temperature of your home to suit your pet’s needs completely. This is due to the fact that your smart thermostat can be accessed by your smartphone, tablet, or computer regardless of where you are.
Just as we don’t want to think something as catastrophic as a fire or carbon monoxide incident would never happen to us, we certainly don’t think a pet would get in that type of danger when we aren’t around. But the sad truth is that these horrific occurrences can and do happen.
While we all have smoke detectors in our homes that make those loud, irritating, high-pitched noises when it comes in contact with smoke, they are not enough to keep your pet safe. Since a regular smoke alarm only alerts the people inside a home, your furry friends won’t be able to take action.
But today’s monitored smoke detectors can now send for help from the fire department immediately and contact you at any sign of a fire in your home. This is the perfect pet safety solution to environmental dangers. Carbon monoxide poisoning also can be prevented with a monitored carbon monoxide detector—at any sign of a gas leakage, help will be contacted promptly.
Security for Pets
Above all else, you want your pet to be safe when you aren’t around. So how can smart security devices help with pet safety and assist in kicking your worry to the curb?
Much like smart thermostats, today’s home security systems can be the perfect answer to your pet worries. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to physically see your pets throughout the day, instead of simply wondering about their well-being? With a home security system that includes video surveillance, you can now access a live feed of your pets whenever and wherever.
Motion sensors can also be very helpful when leaving your pet alone for most of the day. For example, if there is break in, or a disturbed sensor in your home, your security system sends an alert to your smartphone or device that takes a picture of the disturbance. You can find out immediately if your home and pets are in danger from a burglar or if it’s just a false alarm caused by your pet getting into mischief while you’re away.
As cases of pet theft continue to increase, it’s important to have complete awareness of your home and pet.
News: Most dangerous cities in the US
We like this list because it is thorough, with 100 cities listed. The graphs make it easy to understand the data. The information is broken down between violent and property crime. You get a comparison of the city’s crime rate to that of the state and also the U.S. as a whole. And you get your chances of being a victim. For example, in Wheeling, W.V., which is ranked 100th on the list of 100 most dangerous cities in the U.S., you have a 1 in 102 chance of being a victim of violent crime, compared to 1 in 279 in the state of West Virginia. (Incidentally, East St. Louis in Illinois ranks as the most dangerous city in the U.S. on this chart, with a 1 in 36 chance of being a victim.) We also like that you can dig into a lot of other information, such as demographics, real estate trends, school information, and more.
What we don’t like: You have to pay to see some of the information, but you can still gather a lot of data for free at this website.
We like this list, even though it is significantly shorter at only 25, because it gives you context. For example, Nashville, Tenn., ranks 25th out of the 25, with a violent crime rate of 1,102 per 100,000, but its demographics don’t mesh with that crime rate, as 247WallSt.com explains: A low household income and a high unemployment rate usually correlate with a high violent crime rate, but in Nashville, both are above the national average. The website doesn’t explain the discrepancy, but it is worth noting. This list has Detroit ranked as the most dangerous city (NeighborhoodScout.com has Detroit listed as the 8th most dangerous).
What we don’t like: The ads are obnoxious, and you can’t see a list of the 25 cities. Instead you have to scroll down and click through page by page (probably so you will be exposed to more ads). It also lacks the detailed breakdown that NeighborScout.com offers, nor does it talk about property crime, only violent crime.
