Nighttime Home Security and Safety

by Glenda Daughety & Team

You’ve probably heard it on the news or from a neighbor about someone that had a home invasion. You may think “That’ll probably never happen to me, I live in a nice, peaceful neighborhood”. Honestly, it can happen to anyone at any time. Here are some tips and tricks to help ensure that you and your family stay safe at night.


Home Surveillance System. These might be expensive, but well worth the price. Hidden home security cameras with nighttime vision are the most recommended while readily visible ones can be easily destroyed. To help, you can tie most of these systems right into just about any device or devices you want. Now you can find out if that strange noise was simply a stray animal or someone lurking about your home.

Motion Sensor Lights. Naturally you want those even when you’re just coming home from a late shopping trip. These can also be of great importance to home safety at night. Deter a not that insistent break and enter guest.

Always Lock Up. This may seem obvious, but many people simply forget or don’t bother to lock up all the windows, doors and even garage doors, simply because they don’t think they are at risk. Sure the neighborhood is safe and you know your neighbors really well, but the threat most often comes from outside your neighborhood. So, make sure to lock up. It could mean lives.

Safety can never be overrated, so be safe and check out these other great tips for nighttime safety for your home, and just as importantly, your peace of mind. Be safe!

Preventing Home Electrical Fires

by Glenda Daughety & Team

​Home safety is important. Especially if you have a family. One thing most people overlook is electrical safety. Home electrical fires are estimated at around 51,000 fires a year, with nearly 500 deaths, over 1,400 injuries and $1.3 billion in damages. Naturally there are ways to reduce the risk to you and your family. Here’s a few tips to get you started.

  • Appliances: We own many more appliances now than used to be in the average home 50-60 years ago. Appliances from a simple clock to a computer generate heat. So be sure to give the appliance plenty of circulation space and never leave blankets, towels or anything that will cover them so that they do not overheat and cause an overload or short out an electrical socket.
  • Outlets: When it comes to outlets it is always best not to overload them with extra adapters and power cords. Especially so in older homes that may not have a large enough power supply causing breakers to trip or overheat and very possibly cause major fires.
  • Light Bulbs: When using light bulbs be sure to use a bulb with the correct wattage for the fixture you are using it in. A higher wattage bulb can cause the fixture to overheat and possibly cause the bulb itself to explode.

Electrical fires can be such a dangerous and devastating occurrence that following some simple tips can save you or your family’s lives and your family’s livelihood. Here are quite a few more suggestions on how to minimize the possibility of an electrical fire in the home.

Great Décor Tips for Fall in Baton Rouge

by Glenda Daughety & Team

Pumpkins. A sure sign that fall is on your doorstep or is already falling much great gusto from your trees. Matching this cheerful end-of-summer Baton Rouge sensation with fresh homey decoration ideas is an absolute must. To start with, an awesome pumpkin or two on your front porch and strategically placed saucer pumpkins will add to the effect.

Don’t forget the trees outside generously dropping their spring and summer growth. Now is the best time to take advantage of their seasonal molting to brighten up your home with some gorgeous Louisiana colors, like leaf art. Don’t forget the fun variety of twigs and berries that can become art pieces to make entertaining fall vases and fun DIY welcome wreaths.

Don’t forget that wood stove that’s been sitting quietly over summer. Bring out your best for the fall as California nights start getting cooler, giving you a reason to huddle around the warm and mesmerizing flames with friends and family to remember the good times, and to look forward to many more to come.
