Moving into a new house can be very exciting for anyone and most people cannot wait to settle down into their new space but there are some important electronic devices and steps you should take to ensure you are not only comfortable in your space but also safe. Read below to know what some of these are.
This is one of the very first things you should get installed in your new home. Especially if you don’t know the neighbors or neighborhood too well. Security systems with CCTV cameras can not only help you monitor and watch your property but some advanced systems even notify you of any gas leakages when you’re away from home. You can also install a 12v pure sine wave inverter that will help preserve energy and keep the systems running if there is a sudden power outage. If you cannot afford to install security systems right away, at least change the locks on all of the main doors in your house or take them to a locksmith to have them re-keyed because chances are your previous house owners weren’t the only ones who had the keys to their home. Friends, family and maybe even some contractors might’ve been given a copy of the key while the house was being built.
Fire alarms or smoke alarms
These are so important because they will warn you of a fire or smoke before the smoke spreads and the person/people sleeping ends up inhaling all the toxic chemicals present in the smoke. Fire alarms not only have to be installed in places such as kitchens and bedrooms but also in corridors or hallways where there may not be any people at all times. The alarm also makes a very loud sound that will not only wake you and your family up but even your neighbors will be able to hear it and if somehow the person inside does not wake up for the sound or is already suffering gas poisoning, the neighbors who heard the alarm will try to help. Especially if they see the smoke.
Electrical converters such as great inverters can help store electricity that can be used later so you never have to worry about uncomfortable power cuts. These are also a lot less noisy compared to generators which also serve a similar purpose but requires fuel such as petrol etc. to run.
Though solar panels can be slightly costly to first install, they can save you an absolute fortune. Low electricity costs are something everyone dreams about. But that being said, you are also saving the environment by using solar energy and lowering your carbon footprint.
