The latest news about apartment burglary triggered me to fortify the security features in my condo unit. To add, I realized that I ought to also equip myself with personal safety products to be able to provide me the upper hand whenever a troubling scenario happens.
As I browsed the net for answers, I came across security alarms and how they could be utilized to protect both my home and also myself. Personal alarms may be harmless when compared with stun guns and also pepper sprays but this does not mean that they are not helpful devices for self-protection.
Generally, a personal alarm is capable of emitting a high-pitched audio that can distract the attacker as well as draw in the attention of other individuals nearby. It can be carried around or also installed to be able to function as an alarming device for doors, windows, and even drawers and personal computers.
Besides making ear-piercing sounds, a number of security alarms come with a built-in flashlight for lighting and also a key ring for transportability. These features are ideal, especially when the security alarms are being used as personal tools in order to ward off attackers.
After serious consideration, I finally made a decision to give personal security alarms a try. I got myself three various designs, two of which were for my apartment’s security and also the other one for myself.
I placed a 130dB personal alarm in the emergency exit window of my apartment. In case somebody tried to force the window open externally, the alarm would be activated. As for the main door, I installed a 115dB door stop alarm to be able to function as my signal when somebody is seeking to break into my home.
The one that I got for myself was a personal alarm with flashlight. This 130dB alarm is going to be set off as soon as the activation pin that hooks up the wrist strap towards the base unit has been removed.
After weeks of having defense alarms around, I saw that purchasing these personal safety items should surely be considered as an advisable security measure. They should be in every single person’s bag and home.
