How to monitor gun safes, medicine cabinets, workshops and more

Smart home products are not new to the market, but they are becoming more affordable ways to make your daily life safer and easier.

If you’re new to the smart home game, start with the essentials of keeping your home secure 24/7, SimplySafe. Those old-school security companies—those who send a pushy salesman right to your door with a 3-year contract and installer—go back 20 years.

It’s easy to pick up your system online and set it up yourself in under an hour. But what should you be sure to add to your cart? We’ll show you five sensors you need to keep your home safe from intruders, fire, water damage and more.

1. Access Sensor on a Medicine Cabinet
Entrance sensors are a no-brainer on doors and windows, but what about other places you don’t want anyone else to access?

There was an incident with Kim once, where medicine was taken from her mother’s medicine cabinet without her knowledge by someone working in her house. So he’s added a SimplySafe sensor to it, so he doesn’t have to worry about spying and stealing someone again.

At some point in your life, you or someone living with you has likely been given a controlled drug. By simply placing a sensor on your medicine cabinet door, you can send an alert to your phone whenever the cabinet is opened.

2. Water sensor
What is the worst feeling in the world? Getting a call that your house is flooded, or worse, your house is returning hours after the water has been poured.

What if – day or night, home or away – you can be alerted immediately if water starts to accumulate? With a water sensor, you can do just that. The sensor will send an alert whenever it comes into contact with water, allowing you to react quickly and avoid extensive, costly damage.

3. Access Sensors on Safes and Arms Cabinets
As we said earlier, entrance sensors can do much more than just protect the actual physical entrance to your home. Anything you use to store weapons, important documents or money could use more protection.

Worried that your kids might find their way into a locked cabinet? Put a sensor on the cabinet and get an alert whenever it is opened. Worried about an intruder stealing your valuables? Add a sensor.

4. Freeze Sensor
If you live in a cold climate, you know the stress of worrying about your pipes when winter comes. SimplySafe’s freeze sensors detect when the internal temperature of your home has dropped below 41 degrees Fahrenheit. Placing the sensor in the basement or as close to the pipe as possible will provide the most accurate readings. This is a must if you live in certain parts of the country.

5. Glassbreak Sensor
A Glassbreak sensor is just what it sounds like: it detects the unique sound of breaking glass to signal that someone is trying to enter your home.

If you live in a home with multiple windows, glass doors or multiple floors where you can’t hear the sound of glass breaking in some places, consider installing a glass breaker sensor in your home. Glassbreak sensors are especially effective in multi-storey homes where sound cannot travel well between floors.

So, what should you order? We love all of these options. The right mix depends on your needs, your home, your family, and what you need to feel safe. Our advice? There is no such thing as “very secure”. Each one of these sensors goes a long way in protecting your home.
