Different Options for Home Security

Home

When trying to make your home as safe as possible, there are several different options to explore. You may decide that one security feature is enough or that it’s best to have a combination of elements.

Deterrents

There are several types of deterrents that may not stop a home invasion but would most likely deter one. One of the most familiar is the barking dog. Burglars want secrecy, so when your dogs start barking, they are likely to back off. Even before they attempt a break in, they might see that you have gotten a dog from German Shepherd breeders Florida and decide to skip your house. Even a herd of small yappy dogs can make a thief think twice.

Motion sensor lights are another great deterrent. Train them on the front and back entrances and hidden side windows so that anyone trying to sneak in will get exposed. The lights do nothing to physically stop an intruder other than make him think better of trying to get into your house.

Security cameras also make certain people who are up to no good second guess whether they want to steal from you. The cameras themselves won’t stop the theft, but the fear of being identified might.

Preventions

A home with strong doors, dead-bolt locks and impact resistant windows can actually prevent a burglar from getting into your house. He (or she) may try, but unless he has some very top-of-the-line SWAT-team like equipment, he’s not going to have much success breaking in.

An ear-piercing alarm that sounds when the perimeter of your house is breached should make it too uncomfortable for anyone to stay in your home for more than a few seconds. If the intruder is not deterred by the alarm company decal in the window, he no doubt will be when his ear drums begin to throb.

The best way to protect your house and family is to couple some deterrents with a prevention step also. This covers all your bases and keeps the most determined criminal from getting in.…

How To Increase Productivity While Working From Home

Millions of people around the world are making the transition from a traditional office set up, usually outside of the home, to working from home. For many people, there is a noticeable decrease in productivity levels. While much of that can be excused as a product of the transition and the global events that preceded it, it’s important to take the necessary steps in order to increase productivity and make working from home easier on you and your family. In this article, you’ll find helpful tips and ideas on how to increase your productivity and make working from home headache free.

Design With Productivity In Mind

Making the transition from working in a cubicle to working from home doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, setting up your own home office can be a fun and interesting design challenge. To avoid any potential issues with cheap furniture, instead opt for pre owned desks, which are likely to give you less problems with functionality while staying at a decent price. When deciding where to put your home office, go for a part of the home that has less foot traffic and noise so you’ll be less likely to get distracted while working.

Set a Timer

While it may seem counterintuitive, setting a timer specifically to concentrate on a task for a specified amount of time can drastically improve your levels of productivity. It’s recommended to set a timer for 25 minutes and give yourself a five minute break in between. This is called the Pomodoro method. This method is so useful because it keeps you aware of how you spend your time. By blocking out your time into segments followed by small breaks, it acts as an incentive to keeping your concentration solely on one project at a time. Instead of flipping through various web pages and mindlessly scrolling through social media, you’ll have more time and energy to get work done.
