Simple Home Security Ideas to Make Your Home Burglar-proof!

Every year in the U.S. there are more than five million home burglaries! A shocking statistic reveals that 9 out of 10 of these crimes are actually fairly preventable. The risk of being burglarized can be greatly reduced by taking simple steps to make your home more difficult to enter and less enticing to would-be burglars. Remember the greatest weapons in the fight to prevent burglaries are light, time and noise. In this article, we explore how the three can be used and what strategies work best.

How to Use Lights

Even though 60% of burglaries are done during daytime, the other 40% relied heavily on the lack of light and vision to do their deeds unnoticed. Thus, one should make sure that exterior lights are mounted out of reach, so that burglars can't easily unscrew bulbs. Along with this, one should also consider buying motion-sensitive lights, which are now available at relatively low prices.

If this is not an option (or it is just too expensive) we advise you to at least use a variable light timer to activate lights inside your home. Also make sure to trim trees, bushes, and shrubs near doors and windows so burglars can't hide in the shadows.

Using Time Against Burglars

 If you can make it very time-consuming for a burglar to break into your home by then they will probably just quit. If they do stick to the end, they will still be a short timer and won’t have time to steal too many of your things. This is of course not ideal, but damage control is always a positive thing.

 First of all, make sure you install deadbolt locks on all exterior doors. While on the subject of doors, you could also invest some money into installing double key locks in doors which contain glass. This will keep a burglar from being able to open the door simply by breaking the glass and reaching through.

 You can also have window roller shutters installed for your first-floor windows and have them locked down during the evening or when you are away. This prevents burglars from just breaking the glass and hopping in.

The Noise Factor

 The most natural way to make some noise is to, get a dog. You don't need a large attack dog; even a small dog creates a disturbance that burglars would prefer to avoid. If you want a real guard dog that is also family-friendly and easy to keep in-house then consider a German Sheppard.

 The next big investment is to install an alarm system. If you can afford a major alarm company that will monitor activity for you and calls you if anything suspicious happens then this is certainly a good investment. However, this is quite expensive and it is understandable that you may not have the budget to afford it. Thus, we recommend you buy some smaller, do-it-yourself alarms that use motion detection or infrared lasers as a trigger mechanic. These are very loud and will alert a lot of attention which will seriously disrupt the burglar’s plans.

The Streetwise Lipstick Stun Gun (Free Shipping!)

The Streetwise Lipstick Stun Gun is probably the most powerful device of its size and it is one of the smallest and most portable mini stun guns in the world. Although it is a miniature stun gun it can still produce a high voltage shock which can stun even the most aggressive attackers. Due to its small size, it is very compact and extremely easy to carry around!

Streetwise Lipstick Stun Gun
Do not allow its small size to fool you though as this device is capable of producing a strong electrical current and high voltage that can repel attackers and keep the user safe. The device can produce an estimated voltage of 1 million volts which the attacker will not even guess are coming his way. The Lipstick Stun Gun from Streetwise is portable and easy to carry and you can even keep it in your pocket or even attach it to a keychain.

The Lipstick Stun Gun from Streetwise is also quite affordable and if you order it by the end of December we will include free shipping as well! The device is fully rechargeable and you will receive all the needed equipment (the built-in battery and the charging cord).

It also works as a mini flashlight that has one bright LED light which can help you get around in dark areas or help you while you are searching for something (your keys in the parking lot for example). 

The device measures 4 inches in length and one inch in diameter which gives it a perfect disguise.

Get the Streetwise Vaporizer: A Powerful Electronic Cigarette Stun Gun

Streetwise Security raises the bar once again with the introduction of the Vaporizer: the world's first electronic cigarette stun gun! The Vaporizer is an 18 million volt stun flashlight that was designed to look like a common electronic cigarette or “e-cig". It is only about 6.25 inches long but packs the power normally found in units twice its size. Even when test fired, the loud bright electrical burst is often enough to stop an attacker and if not a jolt from this unit certainly will! The device is available in two colors: black and pink.

Pink Model

Black Model

Please note that this is not a real e-cig, the only “smoking” this unit will do is to the bad guy that gets too close! 

Streetwise Security has been the leading manufacturer of self-defense products for over 25 years and uses advanced technology and top quality materials that can be depended upon to provide you with a lifetime of security and safety.

Electronic Cigarette Stun Gun Features

Discrete protection: designed to look like an Electronic Cigarette, this model enables you to catch your attacker off guard and gives you the element of surprise that is often needed to safely defend yourself.

Easy to carry and conceal: at 6.25" long and a diameter slightly larger than a quarter, this unit is easy to carry and conceal.

Triple stun technology: most stun guns on the market today have only one or two points of contact. When using this model to defend yourself, the Triple Stun Technology (TST) allows an electrical charge to emanate between three separate points on the top of the stun gun (two sides and the middle).

Note: when test firing the electric current will only be visible in the center but the sides will also shock an assailant when you make contact with them. This creates a larger stun radius, allowing you to easily defend yourself.

Shock-proof exterior: military Grade aluminum alloy protects the unit from damage so it can always be ready to protect you.

No-slip grip: etched ribbed handle ensures a firm grip.

Blinding 1 Watt LED light: Not only will the flashlight safely illuminate the entire area at night, but it can also help to protect you. When shined in the eyes of an attacker, the ultra-bright light can have a temporary blinding effect making it easy for you to immobilize them with the stun.

Economically and environmentally friendly: the stun gun and flashlight are fully rechargeable and the light bulb has a life of up to 100,000 hours.

Safety feature: in order to prevent accidental discharge a safety switch is discreetly located at the end of the unit which can only be accessed by unscrewing the mouthpiece.

Rechargeable: the included USB cord allows you to charge the Vaporizer using your computer or home outlet using the standard wall block (included).

Lifetime warranty: This unit is made of the highest quality components and comes with a lifetime warranty.

  • The Streetwise Vaporizer Electronic Cigarette (Pink or Black model available)

The Giggle Bug: A Playful Child Locator and Tracker

 Child locators are very useful devices and recommended to parents who often take their children to crowded or large, open areas. After all, somethings like this can happen to anyone: imagine you get spirited away for a second and the next you know - you can't locate your child! Now, granted, the youngster is probably just wondering and exploring somewhere nearby or playing hide and seek with you. However, whose to say something worse hasn't happened? And surely you cannot avoid panic and to go on a frantic search! Oh, but now you can!

 This is all possible thanks to a child locator device called the Giggle Bug. It is locator device disguised in a very clever way to look like a cute clip-on bug which is available in different colors.

But how does it work?

 As previously stated, all you need to do is clip the Giggle Bug onto the child's clothing and you are practically done! The second part of the unit is the transmitter which you will carry with yourself. In case the child is missing the adult can easily trigger the Giggle Bug by pressing the button on the hand-held unit (the transmitter which you get). The Giggle Bug will emit a loud, distinctive, but child-friendly “beep” until the child is located. To stop the noise, the adult needs to simply reset the device.

Tamper Resistant Safety Feature:

 Should the Giggle Bug become dislodged or is removed from the child’s clothing and the clip closes, the unit will “beep” and flash until the clip is opened and reattached.
