There can be no other soothing place for your soul to rest than your home. But today, we come across each day with newspaper stories and personal accounts of loss, theft, accidents or even death. Thus is our house is not monitored properly, we might unknowingly risk it to uninvited danger to our lives. If we could spend insane amounts of money in decorating the interior, what is the harm in spending a bit more on it’s safely purpose?
Safety products in India have become mandatory for every household in India because the current social environment where we are exposed to is full of danger. We believe in the philosophy of protect and prevent. We therefore have come up with the top 10 Must-have safety products for every Home in India. Have a look and keep yourself safe at all times.
1. Smoke Detectors
We come across a lot of incidents daily where homes get burned and people face threatening injuries or even death due to fire outburst. Smoke detectors are the only way to prevent it. It can reduce the chance of fatalities by almost 40 percent in case of a fire.
Doctors opine that most of the deaths related to a fire are caused by gases and smoke originating from the fire rather than direct burns. Well, smoke detector cuts on the chances for the same. As a part of primary protection, install smoke detectors outside every bedroom of your house and also at every storey. I always recommend the ceasefire smoke detector as it an ionization smoke sensor designed to detect even the faintest trace of smoke thus giving you enough time to get to a fire extinguisher.
2. Fire Extinguishers
Fire extinguishers help you prevent small fires from turning into raging fires. They keep the fire in a stand by mode till the fire fighters come and extinguish the fire completely. The ceasefire extinguisher is what I prefer as it is eco-friendly and therefore perfect for residential purposes.
3. First Aid Kit
The first aid kit is a must for every household. This basic medical kit treats almost all kinds of small injuries or accidents. It contains fast aid help like bandage, sterile gauze, burn dressing, cotton roll, ear buds, micro porous tapes, vinyl gloves, adhesive plaster, dettol, tincture iodine, scissor, pocket guide etc.
4. Barton Door Blocks
Kids often injure their fingers by slamming the door hard. You may safe them for such injuries through door locks. It makes your door safe and can easily fit in all kinds of interior doors. The lock can be installed in no time and can also be removed at any time without leaving scratches on your door.
5. Safety Guard for Sockets
Well, kids are of inquisitive nature. Whenever they see electric sockets their first reaction is to put their little fingers into them. I guess you understand the consequence out of it. Therefore, as a part of child proofing your home, guard the sockets with safety guards available in the market. It will prevent your toddles from directly touching the socket and also at the same time is easy to put-in or take out by adults.
6. Car Seats
Car accident experts say the kids travelling in the front seat in prone to grievous injuries than those traveling in the rear seats. Kids should therefore be secured in car seats. It has recently been recommended by traffic authorities to make car seats mandatory in India like US and other countries.
Baby car seats not only protect them but also ensure that they travel comfortably by keeping them snug, their backbone to an ideal position and a cozy journey.
7. Pepper Spray
With the growing concern for women safety in India, pepper sprays are must for every women purse is what I must say. It is a great self-defense device in threatening situations. There are also pepper sprays with key chain that can be easily attached to your home, office or car keys to make it easy to carry with you all the time.
8. Electric Shocker
Electric Shocker is another product to protect you against attackers. It emits a strong electric shock that neutralizes the assailant upon contact with the body. Well, a few seconds of 80 KV high voltage electric shock is almost enough to cause sudden mental confusion thereby giving you enough time to escape. This is another must carry for women and also for home security.
In India there is a heavy problem of power cut off. You become prone to bumping into furniture, falling from stairs or walk into any danger. Keep a personal flashlight with you all the time. The LED light flashlight gives a clean white beam. It is also a great companion for night walks, hiking, holidays, road trips etc.
10. Multi function Car Safety Tool
In this era a lot of time is spent on travel, be it from home to office or back, for work assignments, for holidays etc. Well, you can not escape emergencies while in car too. In that case the multi functional emergency car safety tool will help you get come out of the situation.
