Great Home Security Systems in New Jersey

Home Improvement

I really feel like my house needs to be better protected, on account of the fact that my wife just gave birth to our first child. She is going to be on maternity leave for awhile, and therefore, in the house a lot more of the time than she was in the past. More importantly, she is going to be in the house a lot of the time, when I am not there, with our infant son. So I am looking into deals from ADT home security for New Jersey as I would like to get a home security system installed in my house in the near future.

I do not want to continue to worry about what might happen to my family, while I am not at home, on account of the fact that I do not have a security system in my house that will instantly notify the police if there is any sort of incident. So I am shopping around and trying to compare the different deals that are offered by ADT. I think that they have a lot of options, and for that, I am definitely grateful. But I must admit, that it does make my goal of picking out a security system a little more complicated than it might have been if that were not the case.

I suppose I should not complain. Because it is going to be kind of cool to pick an option that I feel best suits my family needs. I live in a fairly safe neighborhood. But I don’t think that rules out the possibility of any sort of crime happening in any...

Getting Our Home Ready for Hurricane Season

Home Improvement

Hurricane season will be here before we know it. I am not waiting for the season to get here to start my preparations, I plan on taking care of all the maintenance on the house ahead of hurricane season. This includes getting new plantation shutters installed on the house this spring instead of making the mistake of waiting until we get our first hurricane warning.

For the past few years we haven’t listened to our neighbors who warned us to start preparations in the spring. We always scoffed at them for getting ready for hurricane season year round, as we thought that it was very necessary. Last year, we didn’t think it was such a bad idea after their home suffered no damage and our home ended up having all the windows on the first and second floor blown out. We heard about a new type of shutter that will allow us to roll it down over the window when we get a hurricane warning.

I was afraid that the new type of shutter might look like it is very bulky and not fit the house well but I was wrong. The shutter is installed in the same finish as the rest of the house, and it even matches the color of the siding down to the same exact shade. We are very happy that our insurance company will...
