Tips for Keeping Your Home Safe | Greenwich Moms

After a series of recent break ins and car thefts in Greenwich, we want to offer you some helpful tips to protect your family and your property. At Property Protection Consulting LLC , there is nothing they value more than the safety and well-being of you and your loved ones. That’s why they encourage you to follow these tips while at home.
Basic Housekeeping
– Remove clutter in front of doors, stairways or steps and make sure all cords are out of walkways to avoid trips.
– Place any items that could be harmful to small children in a secure cabinet, drawer or safe protected by an Property Protection Consulting LLC contact sensor.
Home Security
– Get in the habit of arming your system, locking your doors and turning on porch lights before bedtime.
– If you have not already, consider adding contact sensors to all entry points of your home.
– Create Scenes to control your system with one touch. A “Movie Night” scene that arms your system, turns the thermostat down and the lights off is perfect for family bonding at the end of a long day!
– While adjusting to new schedules, it can be hard keep track of what’s happening at home. Setup Sensor Activity notifications to get alerted when an entry point or off-limits area is accessed.
Fire and Carbon Monoxide Safety
– Never leave candles or other sources of open flame unattended.
– If you do not have a carbon monoxide detector at home, get one. These can be purchased online for relatively cheap and delivered right to your front door.
– Remember to replace old batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. By enabling System Actions to Watch notifications, you will get alerted when batteries are low in any of your devices.
Increase Security, Save Energy
Smart lighting schedules are a valuable way to deter unwanted visitors and save on costly energy bills. Give your home a lived-in look when you are away by setting up schedules to have your lights come on at randomized times. And, with sunrise and sunset options, you can be assured that your home will be well lit only when needed — perfect for daylight savings!
Stay Aware
Enjoy greater peace of mind with iOS Critical Alerts. In the case of an emergency, such as a carbon monoxide or tamper alarm, Critical Alerts will play a sound and send notifications even if your mobile device is muted or in Do Not Disturb mode — keeping you safe and informed. You can enable Critical Alerts through the Notifications page of your app.
Property Protection can help you with any questions or concerns you may have. Stay healthy and safe!
