The best tech to keep your home safe

It’s important that you feel comfortable in your own home, so if something is affecting that comfort it’s important you deal with it as quickly as possible. Here’s a look at some of the best tech to keep your home and garden safe without harming anybody around it. 

Keep groups from gathering

One of the biggest problems anybody can face within their home actually doesn’t occur inside. If a group of people gathers in front of your house, it can be really intimidating for any homeowner. Even if they’re a small group of young people who are showing no signs of being violent or troublesome, the noise of even a couple of people chatting is enough to make you feel uncomfortable in your own home. You might think the only way of stopping groups like this gathering is to go out and ask them to move away from your property. The only problem is that can put you in a lot more intimidating situation and could even make matters worse. You could also try and put things like barbed wire or spikes along any wall they like to sit on, but this would make the outside of your home unsightly. 

Luckily, there is one device that can make groups of youths want to move away from an area that doesn’t look unsightly and only requires a press of a button. If you install an anti-loitering alarm, like the ones found at, you can use the device to emit an alternating high-frequency tone that is so irritating that young people will want to move away. You might think the noise would be irritating for you, but most people over a certain age will be unable to hear it as your hearing deteriorates over time. If a group does gather, all you need to do is press a button on the remote and they will move away within minutes.

Trap and release little pests

Another smaller but still concerning problem is if you find you have mice or rats in your garden, your shed or even inside your home. You might think that the creatures are harmless and you can leave them alone, but they can carry harmful diseases as well as cause a lot of damage to your home. Luckily, these days there are a number of more humane options to be able to catch these little creatures. Instead of trying to lure them into a traditional mouse trap which snaps down on them, there are devices that will allow the creature to gently crawl into the device but stop them from getting out again until you find somewhere to free them in the wild. 

Stop weeds from growing without damaging the soil

As well as rats and mice, certain unwanted plants could also be damaging your home and garden. There are many sprays on the market to get rid of these weeds, but many will also damage the soil and other plants surrounding them. 

Instead, try either pulling the plants out and removing the roots to stop them from growing again, or find a treatment that doesn’t rely on harmful chemicals.
