doorbell cameraWith a Doorbell Camera You’ll Never Miss a Visitor!

When securing your home, consider a doorbell camera to notify you of people at your door when you are away. Aside from security, never miss an important moment at the front door. Whether you expecting a package while you’re at work or have singing carolers visiting in the evening, doorbell cameras will notify you on your smartphone or device of anyone who comes to your door. Here are some perks of installing a doorbell camera to your front door for added security and notifications.

With a two-way conversation and one-way video, you can talk to whoever is at the door and see who they are or what they may have. There is also a 180-degree wide-angle view of your doorstep. Smart detection will recognize people, so you will not be notified every time a car or animal crosses the front of your house. Doorbell cameras are also equipped with a day or night vision, ensuring 24/7 visual safety.

Custom notifications are also available to receive alerts. This includes a secure notifying alert, which will let you know when someone is at your doorstep, even before they ring your doorbell. You can see the expected and unexpected, securing your front door. While you’re eating dinner or expecting guests, know right away who has arrived as you are running around the house getting ready.

When the video is turned on due to person detection, recording is available with playback. This allows you to go back and see which neighbor left delicious holiday cookies or when unexpected visitors came.

Give the gift of security this year to your loved ones. Whether it’s for your parents or your kid’s new home, share the doorbell camera experience and comfort this holiday season.

Doorbell cameras bring an extra amount of security to your home, being able to monitor when you are away or who may be at your home late at night when you are sleeping. You can also converse with people who may be coming to your home to deliver a package or sell something when you are not at home. With all the features that are available to you on your smartphone, you will be sure to feel more secure about being away from your home.

Home Security for the HolidaysThe holidays are a great opportunity to enjoy time with family and friends, celebrate life, to be grateful, and reflect on what’s important. They are also a time to appreciate the gifts we have.  Here are some of my favorite tips from the CDC for making your holidays safe and special for you and your family.

Wash your hands often.

Keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps you can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Wash your hands with soap and clean running water, and rub them together for at least 20 seconds. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands.

 Manage stress.

The holidays don’t need to take a toll on your health and pocketbook. Keep your commitments and spending in check. Balance work, home, and play. Get support from family and friends. Keep a relaxed and positive outlook. Make sure to get proper sleep.

Travel safely.

Whether you’re traveling across town or around the world, help ensure your trip is safe. Don’t drink and drive, and don’t let someone else drink and drive. Wear a seat belt every time you drive or ride in a motor vehicle. Always buckle your child in the car using a child safety seat, booster seat, or seat belt appropriate for his/her height, weight, and age.

Watch the kids.

Children are at high risk for injuries. Keep a watchful eye on your kids when they’re eating and playing. Keep potentially dangerous toys, food, drinks, household items, choking hazards (like coins and hard candy), and other objects out of kids’ reach. Learn how to provide early treatment for children who are choking. Make sure toys are used properly. Develop rules about acceptable and safe behaviors, including using electronic media.

Prevent injuries.

Injuries can happen anywhere, and some often occur around the holidays. Use step stools instead of climbing on furniture when hanging decorations. Leave the fireworks to the professionals. Wear a helmet when riding a bicycle or skateboarding to help prevent head injuries. Keep vaccinations up to date.

Prevent House Fires

Most residential fires occur during the winter months. Keep candles away from children, pets, walkways, trees, and curtains. Never leave fireplaces, stoves, or candles unattended. Don’t use generators, grills, or other gasoline- or charcoal-burning devices inside your home or garage. Install a smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector in your home. Test them once a month, and replace batteries twice a year.

Handle and prepare food safely.

As you prepare holiday meals, keep yourself and your family safe from food-related illness. Wash hands and surfaces often. Avoid cross-contamination by keeping raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs (including their juices) away from ready-to-eat foods and eating surfaces. Cook foods to the proper temperature. Refrigerate promptly. Do not leave perishable foods out for more than two hours.

Eat healthy, and be active.

With balance and moderation, you can enjoy the holidays the healthy way. Choose With balance and moderation, you can enjoy the holidays the healthy way. Choose fresh fruit as a festive and sweet substitute for candy. Limit fats, salt, and sugary foods. Find fun ways to stay active, such as dancing to your favorite holiday music. Be active for at least 2½ hours a week. Help kids and teens be active for at least 1 hour a day.

Keep Your Home Secure

Visiting relatives, attending religious services, doing your holiday shopping means your home may have no one at home more than normal.  Thieves know and watch for potential homes because they know there will be additional gifts in the home.  Make sure your windows and doors are locked and your home alarms are set even if you are leaving for just a short period of time.  A home break-in can destroy an otherwise joyous holiday season.
