  • Do cameras really stop criminals?

    We have all seen the movies where criminals strategically plan a multimillion dollar heist.  Unless you have millions and millions tucked away in your home and your name is on every magazine, chances are if a burglar breaks into your home, it's a spring of the moment.  Having cameras makes the intruder think twice.  IP cameras show your home anytime you want to view, DVR cameras record to view later, and there's even dummy cameras.  A camera may not stop someone from entering your home, back it can increase your chances.

  • Use a Monkey Fist to defend yourself

    Monkey fist, biker's whip, slungshot, a braided paracord keychain in the shape of a ball.  This can be a very useful tool if you're in a situation where you're confronted by someone trying to mug or attack you.

    Remember this is a weapon.  As an attacker approaches, you can swing this ball on a string up, down, even side to side and around.  Make contact with the intruder but be aware of where the ball goes if you miss.  Practice.  Just because you have a monkey fist, doesn't mean you know how to use it if you need to.

  • Hotel Safety

    With hotel staff, like housekeeping and bellhops, coming in and out of your room during your stay, the safety of your valuables is a huge concern. Beyond that, natural disasters or emergencies can turn a pleasant hotel stay into a nightmare. There are ways you can ensure safety upon your arrival, during your stay, and while securing personal items in your room.

    Request a non-ground level room. Ground level windows are common points of entry for burglars. By requesting a room on the second floor or higher, you'll severely limit the potential of someone breaking into your room from the outside.  Ideally, you may want to ask for a room on floors three through five. These will deter break-ins, but can still be reached by emergency personnel, like firemen. There are ways to ease your mind and guard your windows.

    Prevent your room number from being overheard. Your hotel should not announce your name and room number aloud. Doing so may alert eavesdropping thieves as to where to find your room. If the hotel desk worker says this information out loud, ask for another room.  You may feel self-conscious while doing this, but the simple fact is your room number should be private for your own personal security.

    Leave the door open if accompanied to your room by staff. Many hotels offer valet or porter service to assist getting your baggage to your room and to point its features. When accompanied to your room by staff, be sure to leave the door open to minimize any potential accusations of improper behavior.  Do a brief check of the room while the valet, porter, or bellhop is there to verify the room is empty. Check closets, the shower, and behind doors.  You can always have a hidden camera on your person, and make a video until the service has left.

    Check the room for damage and functionality. In some cases, hotel staff may have missed compromised safety features, like broken locks and deadbolts. If you notice that any of the safety features of your room are broken, request a new room.  Lock each door and turn the handle to confirm the lock actually works. This includes deadbolts and safety locks.

    Use the safety lock when inside the room. Most hotel rooms are equipped with an additional safety lock above or below the handle lock and deadbolt on your room's door. Frequently, these locks can be fastened by sliding a piece of metal on a chain into a fixture bolted to the door or door frame.  Some safety locks are installed improperly or on doors/frames that are insufficient. Try pulling the door against the safety lock. If it or the wood strains, moves, or deforms, your safety lock will only provide minimal safety.  There are also portable safety locks and alarms that can be used during your stay by logging on here.

    Keep a flashlight by your sleeping area. This is especially important when staying in areas where natural disasters, like earthquakes, are common. Natural disasters can interrupt power and leave you scrambling in the dark. Keep a small flashlight by your bed or on your nightstand so you have light in the event of an emergency.  Keeping a flashlight stun gun on your bed side keeps a light as well as a defense weapon in your hands.

    Lock valuables in your room safe when out and about. Hotels usually provide a safe in your room to protect your valuables. Combination safes that you can set yourself are much safer than key-lock safes.  Electronics, like laptops, music players, and tablets, are often targeted by thieves, making these prime candidates for room safe storage.  Jewelry and other small valuables are easy to hide in pockets and smuggle out of your room. Keep these in your room safe as well.  There are also portable hidden safes that can be used for small items that most thieves won't even know they are safes.  If your room safe appears to be poorly made or easy to break into, you may want to forego storing anything in it and use the front desk safe instead.

    Seal your luggage when not in your room. A glimpse of a designer dress or a fancy suit may tempt hotel workers. Keeping all your luggage zipped closed, especially when you're out for the day, will decrease the risk of a hotel worker taking something.  You might also want to move your luggage to a less visible location, like in a closet or under the bed, to further remove temptation.

    Utilize luggage and technology locks. The small locks used to secure luggage or technology won't deter a serious thief, but they will help prevent casual theft. Thieves often look for the easiest victim, and your locks will send a signal that you're a cautious traveler.  You can also use alarm padlocks in case a thief tries to get into your bags. These kinds of locks can be found at most hardware stores, technology stores, luggage stores, or through online retailers.

    Close your room completely when going out. Open windows or balconies will be easier for a thief to break into. Every time you leave your room, check to make sure each window, balcony, and door leading into/out of your room is closed and secure.  Even on higher floors, burglars may be able to easily hop from the balcony of a neighboring room to your own.  Secure your windows with glass breakage alarms that will create a sound to announce his presence.

  • Extra Ears

    Ever need to record a conversation? Help with notes at school? Monitor what the kids are saying in the bedroom? Making sure babysitter isn't saying mean things to the kids?  I know I have!  So I use my recorder whenever I'm in a meeting so I can go back instead of not hearing any of the meeting because I'm busy writing notes.  This recorder has helped bring my life some ease!  I also use it for my invention ideas, my writing notes for my book, and my grocery list.  I have found so many uses since I bought this and am looking forward to finding more uses!

  • When I'm not home

    Even though I live in a very safe neighborhood, I still use a surveillance system.  I love it.  I have a dog at home and it's fun to see what all he does while I'm away.  When he was a puppy, I watch him sleep in his crate.  As he got older, I would study his movements, actions, times he ate, and how often he went to the door.  So not only is the system good for protection, but it also provides a monitoring system for all the daily action.  Use it for when the kids come home from school, Whatever the case, whether it be for protection or just to survey the area, a surveillance camera is a necessity.

  • Comb that doesn't JUST make you pretty

    Now I have something I can keep in my purse, back pocket, vanity table that not only grooms my mane but protects me if the need arises.  I have a working comb that when I need, pulls open to expose a knife longer than 4 inches.  There's nothing better than being able to take care of myself without being flashy.
