We all know that it is much easier for small businesses based in Asia to outrun us when it comes to cheaper rates and why is this?Because cost of labor is cheaper and this is the biggest challenge facing small businesses in North America today but we should not lose hope or give up without a fight. The secret to success here lies in sound and logical Internet marketing and before you ask where can you find this I have a starting point for you. First, I am going to let you in on a very hidden secret and it is this. Despite their ability to provide services at much cheaper rates than us, there is one main ingredient that most Asian based businesses lack and it is this: Their gross inability to communicate affectively in the English language. Their reading and writing skills are much below par and the same could be said for their verbal skills. This is what you need to keep in mind as you prepare to face off against them.

emergency response system

Examine your front and back door locks and make sure they are properly working. The doors are a burglar’s most common means of entry. Know that a steel or solid core door, not a hollow core door, is more resistant to forced entry. Replace a push button knob lock with a deadbolt lock to add more resistance. Many homes have double hung windows which can be “pinned” by installing a pin in the lower window sash. Keep your garage door closed when the garage is unattended. An open garage door is an open invitation for any thief. Illuminate the exterior entrances to your home. No burglar wants to be visible as they walk around a home. Make sure to trim bushes down to reduce hiding places. All bushes should be trimmed so they do not cover windows and doors; preferably less than 3 feet tall.

emergency buttons for seniors

Of course, you know you can use the voice option with Alexa and other home automation systems to control your equipment. But some security systems also have a handsfree feature that will work with your mobile device or a key fob to detect when you are within range of your system. And when you are within that range, it will automatically unlock your door and disarm your security system for you, handsfree. So if this is a convenience factor you’d like to have, then yes, you do need to look for a system that has handsfree options. Geotracking works similar to the handsfree feature. When geotracking is included with your home security system, it works with the GPS feature on your smartphone, as long as you have the location services enabled. This feature will detect your location as long as you have your phone with you and you can preset rules as to how you want to use that feature. You can lock/unlock your door, arm/disarm your security system, turn your lights on or off, set the preferred temperature on your thermostat so it’s comfortable when you arrive. You can even preset it to close your garage door if you forget and it will do so once you’ve traveled beyond a certain range. You will probably want good security cameras and/or doorbell cameras so you can see who’s coming and going, as well as what’s happening in and around your home at all times. You might also want the panic button and the two way talk feature so your family can instantly call for help when needed.
