Hot Deals on Home Security

When I was in High School, 3 days before Christmas one year my family was robbed. They came in, tore open all the packages, took the “good” gifts and left what they didn’t want. The feeling of betrayal and fear were something I hope you all have never have and will never experience. That said, within the first week or two of moving into a new place, I like to take an inventory, look things over, see where the vulnerabilities lie, and fix what I can. While looking for a few items for our new home, I found these great deals on awesome products that take little or no effort to install, and will go a long way in keeping your family safer.

National Hardware V804 Door Security Guard, Satin Nickel $7.02
Plus Free shipping with Super Saver Shipping (with $25 order) or Free 2 Day Shipping with Amazon Prime
Something as simple (and cheap) as a Door Security Guard can keep unwanted people out, and munchkins who have figured out how to open doors, in 🙂

AmazonBasics 12-Sheet Cross-Cut Paper/CD/Credit Card Shredder with Basket $49.99
Plus Free shipping with Super Saver Shipping or Free 2 Day Shipping with Amazon Prime
Identity theft is nothing to mess around with. Besides signing up with a credit monitoring service (here’s a free one we recommend), make sure you shred anything that has any personal info on it. My husband and I have this in an 8 sheet version and it’s FANTASTIC! It’s quiet enough that we can shred while the munchkin is sleeping.

SentrySafe H4300SG Fire-Safe Waterproof Security File, 0.7 Cubic Feet, Silver Gray $50.38
Sentry 1100P Security Chest Size Key Lock Fire Safe, Pink Breast Cancer Awareness $26.44
Plus Free shipping with Super Saver Shipping or Free 2 Day Shipping with Amazon Prime
Having all your important documents in a fire proof safe is important.
Put is someplace people won’t think/have time to look (crawl space, attic, behind your munchkin doll collection) and keep the combination to it in a safe place.

Replace your outdated flood lights with LED Spotlights! They are energy efficient, and look so much better! It’s nice to have lights turn on if you get home after dark, but it does make sneaking in on your teenagers hard ;).

Bright LED Light The bright power LED provides 140 Lumens of bright white light.

Durable, Energy-Efficient LED The bright LED never needs replacing–it’s so efficient that you will get more than 1,800 activations on one set of batteries.



  • I second the notion on the door security guard, my little ones figured out how to open the front door, and wah-lah they made an escape while I was flat ironing my hair. Thankfully, I quickly noticed how quiet it had become, and I promptly recovered them. Now it’s a saftey feature at night when my husband has to work nights on occasion. We have one that doesn’t allow the door to open at all.
