3 Easy Living Room Fixes to Keep Your Family Safe

It goes without being said that we live in dangerous times and that being so, safety precautions need to be taken seriously. Security alarms serve this purpose not only by alerting you about intruders but also securing vulnerable access points like doors, windows and other open, accessible places.


Also, you don't have to lose sleep over the safety of your expensive gadgets and valuables. Notwithstanding the size of your home, or the number of doors and windows or interior rooms, one decides to secure, only real difference is in the number of security components deployed throughout the concerned space and monitored by the control panel. It is a proven fact that security alarms in residential areas show a correlation with decreased theft. 


To quote Simon Hakim/Erwin Blackstone, homes without security systems are 2.7 times more likely, to be targeted by a burglar. This indicates that the mere presence of an alarm system, in most cases, suffices in acting as a deterrent against break-ins.


Home security systems, by and large conjure images of home intrusion. But monitored alarm systems not only offer an early warning of the presence of smoke in the home, they also warn of the sources of heat and contact authorities.


1. However, many of us shy away from installing security alarms, for fear of them ruining the aesthetics of our living spaces. But here's the good news-safety features don't have to be boring. There are a host of ways in which you can have your cake and eat it too. Take the living room for instance. It is the hub for family conversations, social entertaining and whatnot. Hence the importance of safety alarms in this space cannot be stressed enough. And guess what? They don't have to be eyesores. 


2. A fire alarm could be neatly concealed behind a stylishly designed gate barrier or a burglar alarm could be cleverly hidden behind a gallery wall with canvas frames. Just remember to ensure that it is not beyond the reach of kids. Additionally, it could be set with an easy to remember code that unwanted guests are unable to guess. So, in a nut shell the possibilities end only where your imagination does.


3. An added advantage of security alarms is that they can be linked to your phone or the local police station, thereby enabling a breach to be immediately responded to. Certainly better than hiring a security guard, who for obvious reasons of being human, cannot be expected to perform with the same level of efficiency 24x7.Moreover a watchman's wages might be incompatible with the budget of a small household whereas initial expenditure apart, an alarm system guarantees you a lifetime of hassle free, round the clock security.


The installation of a security alarm system has manifold benefits. Most of us are plagued by thoughts of the disasters that could befall us particularly if there are toddlers or old and incapacitated people at home.
