Locking your doors, setting your alarm and keeping valuables out of sight are key ingredients to a safe home. But, unfortunately, even taking these steps doesn’t ensure you won’t ever be the victim of a robbery. In order to ensure that the losses you suffer are minimal, consider investing in a safe. These devices can protect against man and nature, and will ensure your most valuable possessions are always safe.When purchasing a safe, there are a few features you should look for. Some safes offer fire protection, others protect against flood. However, the best safe, though it may cost a bit more, has multiple protective features. The Sentry Electronic Fire-Safe will protect your items for up to 2 hours while in a fire. It is also water resistant and can be bolted to the floor to prevent a burglar from attempting to carry it away. An electronic key pad also ensures that you’ll never find yourself having lost the key and therefore having no way to get to your belongings. If you’re looking for a discreet and easily hidden safe, the Sentry Floor Safe is a cylindrical safe that can be installed into wood or concrete.Once you’ve purchased a safe, it’s time to choose a password combination. Your password should be something completely random, nothing containing personal information such as birthdates or initials. If letters are an option, incorporate at least one capital and one punctuation mark. As easy and convenient as it is to use one password for many different accounts or safes, this is very dangerous. If someone is serious about stealing your belongings or identity, and they manage to hack one account or safe, they will start with that password when they begin to check all of the others. Once you’ve decided on a combination, commit it to memory and learn to type it quickly and efficiently so that this won’t be a problem in the event of an emergency.
