With the end of the year fast approaching, time feels as if everything is kicked into high gear. But all this running around can make it harder to remain safe or even easier to make security mistakes. Our team at Custom Security Systems has your safety in mind, and that’s why we’re here to provide some important insight and offer security options to keep you and your family safe during these holiday months. Be smart when it comes to your home’s safety with help from our Baton Rouge professionals.
Integrating Security With the Holidays
Many people have their homes well defended, meaning that their security systems have numerous aspects around the house that are all necessary. With the holiday season, it’s often difficult to avoid mishaps if you aren’t careful. Our team cares about YOUR safety, and we have some helpful tips to avoid mishaps as best as possible.
Decorations are a wonderful way to bring a festive atmosphere to your home, but if you aren’t careful, they can interfere with your security system. As cameras are often tucked away or in places we hang decorations, it’s easy to accidentally obscure their sight. Ensure you know all the locations of your security cameras beforehand and then put up garlands with care.
On the other hand, you also have to consider motion detectors. The biggest issue is ensuring that these detectors aren’t covered by anything. Confirm that nothing is blocking your motion detectors, or else they won’t work correctly in an emergency. The same goes for a wreath on your front door. In the wrong place, this decoration could cover your door sensor and potentially cause issues.
Additionally, not everyone stays home for the holidays. But with Custom Security Systems, you don’t have to worry about the safety of your home. With our app, you can ensure everything is alright wherever you are. Also, make sure that your call list is updated with valid phone numbers so if there are issues, we know how to get in touch with you. If this is out of date, it can cause problems in the future.
Lastly, be sure to put out your yard sign! The sign alone is enough to make any sensible grinch think twice about their actions.
Making Sure Your Family Is Safe
We all want to ensure our family is safe. But with certain members of the family, such as the elderly and children, some special care is necessary. However, with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it can be hard to keep your eye on those at risk in your home. Take charge of your family’s security with help from Custom Security Systems.
One great way to keep your family safe when you can’t be there is by utilizing a personal panic button. These buttons can be worn as necklaces, bracelets, or belt clips, which the user can press once they’re in trouble. An example of when one of these is useful is if an elderly member of the family falls, cannot get up on their own (or are hurt), and nobody else is around. By having a personal panic button, your family members have the ability to get help on their own, and can help turn a bad situation into a life-saving scenario.
