When it comes to self-defense, it is best practice to follow the “80/20 Rule.” For most things, you will get the biggest bang for your buck if you focus on a few of the most important things — the 20 percent, which actually have more impact than the other 80 percent combined!
Keep reading to learn 5 of the highest impact, must-haves for home defense.
Hardened Exterior & Safe Room Door
Motion Sensing Light
Every door that leads to the outside or from the garage into the home should be hardened. You need a tight-fitting, door with a peep hole.
WiFi cameras are now so affordable that you don’t have to go overboard. At a minimum, add a front door camera like a “Ring” doorbell and one internal camera.
Buy a screw-in motion sensor that can replace nearly any light around your home. These provide an extra layer of early warning. Put these lights near all obvious entrances.
Family Emergency Response Plan
Rapid-Access Gun Lock Box Or Safe
If you’re a gun owner, it’s important to have a lock box or safe that is easy to use under duress, in the dark, and allows you to access the firearm within five seconds of touching it.
A good plan starts with method of alert for both the family and 911, involves adjusting to the situation presented, provides a few simple procedures, gives everyone a job, and ends in accountability and dealing with secondary responders.
