Personal Safety Tips for the Holiday SeasonDecember 23rd, 2018 | by admin admin | in Safety Advice | 1
The New Year is often a time for new goals and resolutions. These often focus on indulging in unhealthy food less often, and hitting the gym more. This year, perhaps it is time to improve your health in another way; by increasing your personal safety with the inclusion of new security technologies such as:
- Medical Alarms
- Residential Alarms
- Home Automation Options
Medical alarms are perfect for people with any medical or mobility concerns. These devices can prolong a person’s ability to live independently, as they provide a lifeline in the case of an emergency. Often worn as wristbands, or around the neck, medical alarms serve as a conduit between yourself, and emergency services, allowing for quicker response times. With the push of a button, monitoring stations will call to confirm you are safe. If there is no response, an ambulance will be dispatched to your residence.
Residential alarms are also an essential part of your personal safety systems. These alarms help to provide home security and a peace of mind, to keep you safe over the holiday season, and beyond. Typical residential alarms consist of a control panel, a loud siren, motion detectors, and door/window contacts. These systems are perfect to set at night before bed, and will instantly warn you if someone attempts to break in. They also alert neighbours of an intruder while you are away.
Many home automation options also exist to further increase your personal safety. These technologies can give real time smoke and carbon dioxide readings, specific to each room, as well as allow you to control various aspects of your home from lighting, to the thermostat, and everything in between.
This holiday season, make a goal you will follow through on, and improve your personal safety by introducing these systems into your home.
