There are many reasons you might need a home safe. Now, as I’m saying this, try not to think of home safes from 1950′s era movies; the huge ones with turn wheels large enough to steer one of Christopher Columbus’ ships. New safes are much more discreet, more burglar proof, and easier to operate. Now back to my first sentence. Why do you need a home safe? Well, perhaps your wife has valuable jewelry that she only wears on special occasions. Or maybe family heirlooms that may not be worth much in terms of money, but are priceless to you. Yet another reason would be if dad has a gun for home protection that he wants to keep away from small hands. If you take a few seconds to think about your belongings, you’ll no doubt come up with half a dozen items you’d like to keep safe.
That’s why SafeMart now offers a whole line of home safes from V-Line. Some of these are desktop models. Others, such as the one in the picture, are closet vaults that fit directly into the wall. Another nice feature is that they’re keyless. You won’t have to worry about lost keys anymore.
Still, do you really need a home safe? Well, take a few minutes and think about all of the things you’d like to secure. Add up their total value. Now compare that to the costs of these safes. You’ll probably see that the risk of losing just a few of those items clearly outweighs the cost of purchasing a home safe.
I’m going to leave you with one more consideration. If you have a home security system (and hopefully you do) a bold thief will still have a few minutes to grab whatever he can and leave before police arrive. In those few minutes, he certainly won’t have the time to attempt to remove or open a home safe. Your valuables will remain protected.
SafeMart is now carrying LogicMark’s Guardian Alert 911 Emergency Dialer. Basically, this device has a base station that plugs into your phone jack. It also has a pendant that can be worn by the user. Now, lets say you fell while walking up the stairs and are unable to reach the phone. You can call for emergency assistance right from your current location.
Who Needs This?
Well, it would be a nice addition to any family, but especially for those with an older or disabled relative who may be at home alone some times. Perhaps this person is only unsteady when they have to go up or down stairs. No problem. Just leave the pendant where you can reach it and take it with you when you go up or down the stairs. Its not an exaggeration to say that this could help save someone’s life in an emergency. And the peace of mind it affords is well worth the investment.
The Uplink DigiCell AnyNET GSM Cellular Communicator is here. We’ve already looked at what exactly is a GSM (see Jan. 10 post here). I don’t want to go over the same information, so if you’re confused, click the link to go to the previous post. The AnyNet GSM Communicator is a new tool that will work on any network. Most GSM modules are designed to work only with that item. So, for example, GE’s GSM module only works with the GE system. Other modules can’t read and report that particular code. The DigiCell AnyNET doesn’t have that limitation. It can be used as a GSM device with any home security system.
The TelGuard did pretty much the same thing, but it could only respond to alarms in general. So, it wouldn’t send information about which door was opened, or what motion detector was tripped. It would merely alert the monitoring company that there was an alarm (it would, however, differentiate between burglar and fire alarms). This new module will tell the monitoring station that there is an alarm, and precisely which sensor tripped it. And, the best part, it’s less expensive than the TelGuard. Visit SafeMart.com for more information on this and other great home security systems.
Here’s something pretty interesting for you: SecureLogic’s new In Wall Safe, the InvisiVault. You can store cash, savings bonds, passports, etc. in the vault for complete security. The cool thing about this wall safe is that it looks just like a picture frame. In fact, it is a picture frame. You can put any 16×20 or 12×16 picture in it. The other nice feature is that it operates by remote. So, you use the remote, enter the pin, and…the safe opens.
The reason I like this product is that it is completely hidden. A thief or a nosy house sitter would never even think to look at your picture frame for your valuables.
