Mother’s Day is almost here! If you’re wondering what to get your Mom this year, here are some unique ideas that she will more than love: the gift of safety, security, protection and Peace of Mind is priceless. Here is our Mother’s Day guide to safety & security that will ensure mom (and the entire family) are safer this Mother’s Day.
Home safety is important for maintaining good quality of life and keeping the entire household safe. In a standard home, there are many potential hazards. Having the proper controls in place and being aware of typical household dangers can help your mom & your entire family stay safe on a day to day basis.
1. Alarm System or Security Camera System
The best Mother’s Day gift to make sure that your mother (and father) is safe is an alarm system or something better, like a home security system. They drastically reduce the chances of a break-in or home invasion. What’s more, with home video surveillance, you can stay informed if anything happens to your mom and know if she is fine.
If your mother has an alarm system already but the one is long outdated, you may want to consider an upgrade, taking the chance of Mother’s Day gift. Buy a home security system as your Mother’s Day gift, from a trusted company, like BSG, since an older alarm system just won’t cut the mustard anymore.
2. Safer Door Locks
Replacing mom’s worst locks with solid and dependable ones is also a good gift idea for Mother’s Day. One of the security concerns that you often don’t think about is the flimsiness of certain types of locks. Any good thief knows that there are multiple ways to breach a house. Flimsy locks like those on sliding glass doors and garage doors are loose and can easily be lifted. They are all security risks for your mom. Be sure to choose the best door lock as your Mother’s Day gift to keep burglars out.
3. Wireless Smoke, Heat & Fire Detector
Make sure that your mother has smoke detectors, which are strategically placed to give early warnings in the case of any of these dangers. If there are already detectors installed, your Mother’s Day gift could be to check all of them and replace the batteries. Then you can be sure they are in working order for months or years to come. In addition, these fire safety tips can help you keep your home safe:
- Replace the batteries in your smoke detectors once annually.
- Test the batteries in your smoke detectors on a quarterly basis.
- Have your chimney or wood burning stove inspected by an expert on a regular basis.
- Keep a fire extinguisher in the kitchen, garage and on every level of the home.
- Check the gauge on your fire extinguishers on a monthly basis.
- Show the fire extinguishers to all baby sitters and nannies so they can be found quickly in an emergency.
- Allow the older children in the household to practice using the fire extinguishers at least once or twice until they feel comfortable with the process.
4. CO2 Monitoring Device
To make mom safer, you can help her remove all possible hidden dangers (flash floods, carbon monoxide poisoning and smoke inhalation from a fire) with some clever Mother’s Day gifts. When fire, carbon monoxide, or water leaks threaten your home, BSG Security gives you proactive protection and awareness that traditional security can’t.
5. Easy to Use Panic Pendant
Another cool Mother’s Day gift is to set up a panic system in the house. This helps deal with some emergency and ensures her safety. When a medical emergency happens, you want to get the ambulance there as quickly as possible. Even if you check in during the day, a heart attack, stroke or fall could be fatal in minutes. That’s why an easy-to-use panic button is a great idea for mom – or dad as well.
This Mother’s Day gift is simply a convenient and simple button that notifies emergency services when it is pressed. Then an ambulance can be dispatched immediately. Someone who has fallen down and cannot reach the phone may be able to reach the panic button and press it. If your mom suspects a major medical emergency, she can get an ambulance on its way to her with just a push of the button.
