Do's and Don'ts for Keeping Your Home Safe While You're on Vacation

Sleeping Family

The last thing you want after a relaxing vacation is to come home and find your valuables missing or your house damaged by a fire. Before you take off for a vacation, you should take some precautions to deter burglars and reduce fire hazards. Here are some tips for protecting your home:

Do’s of vacation security:

  • Befriend your neighbors: While you are away, having a trusted neighbor check your mail, remove flyers from your door, and tend to your plants can deter burglars by eliminating the tell-tale signs that no one is home.
  • Keep your home lit: A dark home left unattended is attractive to burglars. Invest in electronic timers that can switch your lights on when it gets dark and turn them off in the morning.
  • Unplug major appliances: Reduce the risk of an electrical fire by cutting the power to your large appliances, including the washing machine and the fridge. This will not only lower the chances of a fire, but will also save on your energy bills.
  • Place valuables out of view: Design your landscaping so that it keeps your windows inaccessible and hides a clear view of the interior of your home.

Don’ts of vacation security:

  • Don’t leave a key hidden outside: No matter how creative you are with a hiding place, leaving a spare key outside the house is an open invitation for burglars.
  • Don’t forget to notify your security company: If you are leaving for an extended period of time, then alert your home security provider so they know your home is unattended.

 Don’t leave any windows or doors unlocked: Even second-story windows can be an entry point in an empty house, so do a walkthrough before leaving to make sure everything is locked.

Post Alarm Systems can keep your home protected 24/7, whether you are in it or not. Learn about our advanced home protection on our website or by calling (626) 802-5345.

 

4 Kinds of Security Systems to Make Your Home Safer

Home Security

There are many benefits to installing security measures in your home, including discounts on homeowner’s insurance, protection for your valuables, and most importantly, safety for you and your family. A number of high-tech solutions are available for your home that can help you rest easy about your family’s security. Here are some of the systems that you should consider:

1. Home Alarm: Burglars are easily deterred by noise, especially if the sound is a home alarm. A monitored alarm system ensures that your home is always protected even when you’re not there. With this option, a central monitoring office is notified when your alarm sounds so they can call the police, even if your phone lines are out!

2. Fire Alarm: Every home should have a series of smoke and heat detectors installed to alert you at the first sign of a fire so you can call the fire department and get out safely. These should be installed professionally, because positioning is essential to their effectiveness.

3. Video Surveillance: Cameras installed in the front of the home can let you know who is at the front door from anywhere in the house. You can access your home’s surveillance cameras from any computer or from your television.

4. Medical Alert: With a medical alert device, those with special health concerns do not have to worry about being at home on their own. These devices are worn around the neck and work anywhere within 600 ft. of the home. In a medical emergency, simply press a button to speak with a certified EMT who will notify emergency dispatch and walk you through the situation.

If you would like to make some valuable security upgrades to your home, then contact Post Alarm Systems. We offer comprehensive home security measures to give you total peace of mind. Contact us for a free estimate by calling (626) 802-5345.

Keeping You Posted: Senior Home Safety Tips

Senior Couple Portrait

Seniors and home bound adults spend more time at home than most people.  Many older adults state that maintaining an independent lifestyle and good health are their highest priority. Advanced aging may impair physical or mental abilities which can threaten independent living priorities. Increased symptoms during the later years in life may include decreased vision and mobility, weakened balance and strength, and increased environmental risk factors within the home which can eventually affect their independence.

These elevated risk factors can often lead to a fall which is the number one cause of unintentional injuries in the home among seniors. It is widely reported that over 35% of older adults experience at least one fall each year with approximately half of those injuries considered to be serious. Once a fall has resulted in injury, the risk of a subsequent fall in the next five years rises dramatically.

Here are 10 Home Safety Tips for Seniors & Home Bound Adults:      

1.  A cluttered room can be hazardous for seniors and it is easy to trip on magazines or papers left on the floor.   Old papers and magazines should be cleaned up or recycled regularly.

2.  Utilize a cordless phone in high traffic rooms to reduce tripping hazards.

3.  If you smoke, start smoking outdoors or utilize deep and stable ashtrays to minimize combustible materials from being ignited by lit cigarettes.

4.  Replace sagging and cushy furniture with firmer models which make it easier for older adults to sit and get up. Consider furniture designed specifically for seniors.

5.  Consider replacing wall-to-wall carpeting or area rugs with wood or laminate flooring to minimize tripping hazards associated with worn out carpet. Seniors with vision problems may not see the uneven surfaces of carpeting or rugs. If you must have carpeting, then install a berber type carpet which is known to be relatively flat and closed loop.

6.  Install more lighting in all areas of the home which seniors spend the most time. As adults age, more light is needed to read and see properly. Minimize the use of lamps which have wires or cords and opt for overhead lighting whenever possible.

7. Consider automated light switch devices such as the clapper to minimize the need for searching for a light switch in a dark room.

8.  Use non-slip appliques and mats in the bathtub and shower. Install railing in the bathrooms in areas where a senior may need them for leverage.

9.  Purchase food and personal care products in easy-to-open containers whenever possible.

10.  Have an emergency notification plan in place should you become impaired or injured. Place emergency numbers in easy to find places throughout the home and have a daily check in routine with other neighbors. Consider using an emergency paging service with a wireless remote device when physical abilities are at risk.

A regular safety assessment will help increase the time a senior can maintain a healthy and independent lifestyle.

Keep in mind that Post Alarm now offers our new state of the art medical which is a cutting edge medical alert device that is designed to be worn and offers real time two way emergency voice communication through the actual pendant itself.  Should an accident occur anywhere in the house or outside within 300 feet from the house, a live EMT will be able to speak to the injured person directly through the pedant and summons help.  For more information, please contact Patricia Hernandez at 626-446-7159 and she will be able to put you in touch with one of our Medical Pendant experts.

Reasons to Have Your Commercial Alarm System Monitored

Typing in a secret pin code

Not all alarm systems are made alike, and some will provide superior protection for your business. You can’t be at the workplace 24 hours a day, but by using a monitored security system, your property will be protected 24/7, allowing you to rest easy. There are many advantages to monitored alarm systems—here are just a few of them:

  • Around-the-Clock Protection: If you don’t have a monitored security system, then you are relying on neighbors and bystanders to inform the police if there is a problem when you’re not around. An alarm-monitoring company will first verify that the alarm was not accidentally triggered, and then alert the police to the intrusion.
  • Alarm Maintenance: Aside from alerting the authorities when your security alarm is triggered, monitoring services keep your system up-to-date and alert your alarm company if maintenance is required.
  • No Need to Rely on Phones: During a break-in or other emergency, your phone lines may be cut or otherwise not functioning. With a monitored alarm system, this is no problem because you are still remotely connected to your alarm company. They can alert the authorities so you don’t have to worry.

You work hard to make your business run, so don’t let robbery or fire be a concern. Post Alarm Systems has been providing full service security to Southern California for over 50 years, and our monitored commercial alarm systems can protect you and your business around the clock. We offer additional protection with our armed response patrol division, who can quickly be on the scene to eliminate the threat and alert the police if necessary.
