We’ve almost made it through another long, hot summer, but many families still have a need to elevate life safety protections at home. If that’s the case for your family, our Bakersfield home security company can help. Here’s what we recommend.
Lighting is one of the most underrated safety functions in your home, especially if you or a loved one in your home is an older adult. According to AARP, a well-lit home is a safer home — because illumination can keep burglars away and help prevent dangerous trips and falls.
As summer winds down and the sun begins to go down earlier, we have to get back into the habit of turning lights on in the early evening. With home automation lighting that you control with your Alexa, Google Home or other voice command device, you’ll never need to worry about fumbling around in the dark again in search of a light switch. It’s as easy telling your device to “turn the lights on.”
The late summer heat can be a source of serious hazard, both to your health and safety. With smart home automation, you can set safe indoor temperatures at home without it being a drain on your energy budget. Hopefully, you’ll be staying in the house or an air conditioned workplace — but if you need to be outside, be sure to make staying cool a priority as you weather the current end of summer heat wave.
For many criminals, the warm nights and empty homes of late summer are an invitation. They see this as their last opportunity to carry out a residential burglary before the weather turns colder and homeowners are done going on vacation for a while.
That’s what makes this a great time to add cameras to your home security system, or update your cameras for better coverage and clearer pictures.
These are some of the best life safety investments you can make as the summer winds down. To inquire about any of them, call the Bakersfield home security experts at Secure Systems. We look forward to assisting you.
