15 Tips For A Safer Home

5 min read

Introduction

Now that you’re a parent, you want to make sure your home is as safe and secure as possible. You may even have started thinking about ways to protect yourself from crime or other dangers in the world around us. The keys to making your home safer? Awareness and preparation.

Don’t leave valuables in your car.

One of the easiest ways to protect your valuables is to simply not leave them in your car. If you do have items that are valuable, make sure they’re not visible from outside the vehicle or accessible from inside. This can be as simple as putting them in a bag that covers up its contents or putting them in another room of the house (like under a blanket on the couch).

If you find yourself with no choice but to leave an item in plain sight, consider installing a GPS tracker on it so that if something does happen while it’s unattended, police will be able to track down its location faster than ever before!

Use security cameras to deter would-be burglars.

When you’re thinking about how to deter burglars, consider installing security cameras near your front door. It’s not always easy for would-be intruders to find the home without being seen by a camera, and having a video feed of the area will make your home seem less vulnerable. You can also use security cameras outside your home as an added layer of protection against theft or vandalism—for example, if someone tries to steal something from one of your cars in the driveway but gets caught on camera instead.

You may also want another key entry point where people can get into your house without entering through an exterior door or window (if there is one). A good option would be installing motion-detecting lights inside each room with its own lockable door so that anyone who enters must first turn off all lights before opening any doors!

Create a safe room that can be used during emergencies.

Creating a safe room is an important part of creating a safer home. A safe room should be located in a central part of your house and it should have no windows or doors. The door should be heavy and can be locked from inside.

A cell phone is essential for calling 911 in case of emergency and having a radio will keep you informed about what is happening outside your home during an emergency situation. You’ll also want some flashlights so that you can see without power (or after dark) as well as battery operated radios so that if there are no broadcasts on local stations, there will still be information available through other sources like internet radio stations or podcasts like ours!

Install motion-activated lights outside your home.

  • Motion-activated lights are a good deterrent for burglars, as they’ll be able to see you coming from a long way away. They can also be set to turn on at night and off during the day, so that you don’t have to worry about them wasting energy or being left on all night when no one’s around.

Keep a phone by your bed at night, and charge one in each child’s bedroom as well.

One of the best ways to keep your family safe is by having a phone by your bed at night. If you don’t have one, it’s time to purchase one!

If you do have a landline in your house, use it! Landlines are much more reliable than cell phones and tend not to lose their signal as easily. If this isn’t an option for you, however (a lot of people don’t use them anymore), then go ahead and get yourself a mobile phone. You’ll want one that has all the features: GPS tracking capabilities, emergency numbers programmed into it and safety apps like Life360 so that if something happens with one child while another child is away from home or school–and vice versa–they can contact each other immediately without having anyone else know about it except those involved directly in whatever situation arises before anyone else finds out about anything happening at all

Make sure you have a fire extinguisher in your kitchen cabinets, and know how to use it.

A fire extinguisher should be kept in your kitchen, garage and workshop.

Fire extinguishers should be kept at least 3 feet away from high heat sources such as stoves and ovens. This way, if there is a fire, the heat won’t cause the chemical inside to explode before it can work its magic on putting out your flames!

To use a fire extinguisher: 1) Point away from yourself 2) Pull pin 3) Squeeze lever 4) Sweep side-to-side until all flames are extinguished

Test carbon monoxide detectors regularly, especially ones that are battery operated like smoke detectors because they may not sound if there is a power outage or if the batteries run out.

Testing your CO detectors regularly is a good idea because they may not sound if there is a power outage or if the batteries run out.

For example, smoke detectors that use batteries should be tested monthly and replaced every year. You can easily test them by pressing the button on top once for each minute of operation you want to test for–the alarm will sound if it works properly and stop after 20 seconds of sounding. If it doesn’t work properly, replace both batteries immediately with new ones (there should be two AA batteries) or replace your entire detector with a new one available at hardware stores and home improvement centers nationwide!

Do not leave candles unattended near children or pets, and keep matches and lighters away from them as well because they can burn and start fires easily.

Candles can burn down your house and are a fire hazard.

Conclusion

The best way to stay safe in your home is by being vigilant and aware of what’s going on around you. This can be done by installing security cameras, lighting up dark areas outside your house with motion-activated lights, keeping a phone by your bedside at night and charging one in each child’s bedroom as well. These tips will help keep burglars away from your property and make sure everyone stays safe during an emergency situation such as fire!
