The holiday season is a time for festivities and fun. Unfortunately, it’s also a time when many homes get targeted by burglars. Here are some ways by which you can protect your home and keep your stuff secure during the holidays. Bid goodbye to worries and enjoy your vacations to the fullest.
1. Rex Plus Electronic Watchdog
Plug this gadget into any electrical socket inside your house where you want to detect movement and let your “watchdog” shoo away any intruder. The barking becomes more frequent and loud as the intruder get closer to the dog alarm. Choose from its many options to optimize the kind of security you want in your house.
2. Intermatic Lamp and Appliance Timer
This device allows you to set electrical appliances (especially lights) on a timer so they turn on at specified time every day. This is perfect for the family that’s going out. Intruders target homes that aren’t occupied. With this device you can easily fool them into believing that you are present in the house.
3. Fake TV
Instead of scaring away intruders via a protective alarm system, you can also try making people believe that you are in the house. It is similar to the device above. It simulates the light of a 27” LCD TV and tricks outsiders into thinking that you are home. Best feature about Fake TV is that it merely consumes the power of a night-light bulb.
4. August Smart Lock
Don’t let the name fool you – there are no keys in action here. No access patterns or codes either. A thief can’t use a key logger to copy your pass-code and then break in when you’re not in the house. The August Smart Key lock secretly replaces most single cylinder deadbolts to provide secure access to your home through Android or iOS devices. The August Smart Key lock functions independently, via a secure BlueTooth connection or on your home’s Wi-Fi. The app notifies if the lock’s AA batteries are low so this lock keeps working, even if the power goes out.
