A harmless hair care accessory at first sight, this fully functional comb transforms into a knife, but not just any knife, a knife that could save your life.  Think outside the glamor circle and know that you can take this comb hiking, camping, shopping, the theatre, desk at work, hotel, anywhere you go.

  • What is a surveillance camera?

    Surveillance cameras are video cameras used for the purpose of observing an area.  They are often connected to a recording device or IP address.  The camera may be watched by a security guard or law enforcement officer, but analysis of footage has been made easier by software that organizes the footage into a searchable database.  Most footage has been reduced by motion detectors which record only when motion is made in the camera's eye.  Surveillance cameras are simple and fairly easy to install and use in homes, offices, businesses, and everyday situations.

  • Diversion safes are great!

    Diversion safes are great to have!  Not only are they easy to hide in plain sight, but they are great for any situation.  Hide a spare key in a rock, hide money in an outlet, hide jewelry in the hotel room in a hair brush.  I can keep money in the garage, in a liquid wrench hidden safe.  I have ammo in my flower pot diversion safe.  I even keep my Christmas money in a wall clock safe.  I have a diversion safe in every room in the house and outside thoughout my yard just to keep from digging holes in the yard with coffee cans!!!  My favorite hidden safe is my water bottle.  Believe it or not, I can hide my key fab, money, and watch in there while at the beach!  I have one in my car too, just in case I need a couple bucks when I leave my purse at home.  So really, diversion safes are convienent to have around whether you are hiding from intruders, roommates, or kids.

  • Why have a fake camera?

    If you already have an existing surveillance camera system and would like to boost its effectiveness, you can do so rather cheaply with the use of fake security cameras. Simply make sure that your real security cameras are placed in the most important spots, and add a few fake security cameras in other places. For instance, in a retail store, you might want to place your real security cameras at your entrances and exits, over your cash registers and in areas of the store where you have expensive merchandise; you can then place fake security cameras in your break rooms or in your office for an extra level of protection. Home owners might want to place real security cameras in their driveway, near their front door and close to their garage or carport, but they can then place fake security cameras in their garden or inside of their home. However, it is important to make sure that your fake security cameras blend in well with your existing cameras in order for them to work. Look for dummy security cameras that are similar in color, size and style to your regular security cameras so that potential thieves will not be able to notice the difference.

    If you already have a burglar alarm, you might feel comfortable with the idea of only using dummy security cameras. Burglar alarms typically provide a relatively good level of security for most homes and businesses, especially if you live in a safe neighborhood or operate your business in an area that is secure, but you can always benefit from having a real security camera system. Adding in a few dummies to supplement your burglar alarm, however, is always a good idea.

    Fake security cameras are a good idea if you feel relatively secure but want to scare of petty thieves who might attempt to steal something. Placing a fake security camera near jewelry or other valuable items in your home, for instance, might keep a scared teenage babysitter from slipping things into her pocket, or it might keep the same babysitter from inviting her boyfriend over while you are away or spending too much time on the telephone when she should be watching your little one. In situations where you feel secure in general, a fake security camera can simply make you feel a little bit safer.

    If you are on a tight budget and simply cannot afford to purchase a real security system right now, you should certainly consider purchasing fake security cameras to give your home some sort of safety and security. You can often purchase basic models of fake security cameras very cheaply, and you can at least feel a little better knowing that many potential thieves, vandals and other people with bad intention might be fooled by your fake security camera, even though you have not spent a lot of money on a real security camera system.

  • Advantages of a Fake Camera

    Having fake security cameras is certainly better than having no security cameras at all. A lot of people cannot tell the difference between fake security cameras and real ones, and the sight alone of a “security camera” is often enough to scare a petty thief enough that he will talk himself out of the crime that he was planning.

    Many business and homeowners and feel much safer once they install fake security cameras in their home. The reason that most of these individuals choose to purchase fake security cameras instead of real ones is because they are much more affordable in many cases, and they do not require any maintenance other than an occasional wipe-down for aesthetic purposes and in order to make them seem more realistic.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
