Self Defense for you, your home, and your loved ones that will prepare and defend you against your safety fears

Updated: 2016-06-21T06:00:01.971-04:00


Stun Gun Batons make for added self defense


Stun Guns are a great self defense product and are easy to use. The problem however, is that the stun gun is only good in up close encounters. A lot of women, and men, would not want to get an attacker that close to him or her and then have to use a weapon. That is where the stun gun stun baton comes in handy.

Stun batons are great because of its power and extended reach which allows for a person to easily stun their attacker from a safe distance. These Stun Master™ stun gun batons are a favorite with security guards. Simply touch an assailant with the baton and pull the trigger: three to five seconds will leave the assailant dazed and temporarily paralyzed. The stun baton will also deliver a shock when touched six inches from the tip, to prevent an assailant from grabbing it and taking it away. No permanent damage. Full recovery within 5-10 minutes.

So, keep these stun batons in mind when you are looking for a self defense weapon. Maybe this is exactly what you need.

Self Defense During An Animal Attack


Ok, so I am sure this has not happened to the majority of people, but I am sure you have thought about it before. What do I do in case of a dog attack? Well, first of all, I know it's hard, try not to panic. Dogs sense fear. I know, I know, the first thing I would do would probably be to make in my pants. However, you can be prepared for such an attack with a canine repellent. This first kind that I would recommend is made by Mace, and it is the Mace Canine Repellent. It is an EPA approved Mace™ Muzzle that provides safe, effective and humane protection against canine attack. Ideal protection for walkers, joggers, cyclists or delivery people. For the more humane individuals out there that even though they are being attacked by a dog do not want to be so cruel in their fighting back, I recommend the Dog Chaser Animal Electronic Repellent. Using the latest ultrasonic technology, the Dog Chaser produces a discomforting but not harmful, high frequency sound, audible to dogs but not to humans. Help stop the approach of unwanted dogs at up to 15 feet. Also, a useful aid in training dogs.

Finally, a simple thing to remember is to cover your ears, play dead, and most likely a dog is going to get bored and leave you alone.

Self Defense Should Start With Personal Alarms


Today is going to be the start of an eight part series of personal alarms that 919 Security features. Personal alarms are a great way to protect yourself on a walk, jog or anything that may put you in danger of being attacked. Attackers normally look for people who tend to be alone, especially women. Most of our alarms are at least 100db alarms, with some being upwards of 130db alarms. This is loud enough to deter even the bravest of attackers.

Designed to draw attention to any crisis, our PAL-1 130db Personal Alarm (located first on the page) is as loud as eight 100db alarms. The alarm is activated when the strap attached to the alarm pin is pulled. Travels easily on your belt or in your purse. The Door Alarm accessory converts the Personal Alarm into a portable door or window alarm. Great for home, hotel rooms, college dorms, etc. Use 9-volt battery (not included). The best part about this is that easily converts from a personal alarm into a door alarm. This feature works great if you live alone or maybe you are travelling and are staying in a hotel. Hotels are good places that burglars like to attack as well, especially the outdoor motels and the bottom floors of apartment buildings or condos.

Remember, you should not wait until you are attacked to take action. Prepare yourself. It's better to be prepared and have nothing happen to you than to not be prepared and be taken by surprise.

Dummy Cameras Provide Just As Much Security As Real Cameras


There is really no real way of telling just by looking at them. They look and feel just like the real thing. The only people that know for sure are the owners. I am talking about Dummy Cameras. These cameras act just like the real thing except they do not record anything. However, a burglar does not know this and most likely will act as if it is real and thing twice about breaking and entering. This works just the same as having an ADT sign out front. A lot of the times this works just as well as having an actualy ADT alarm system. These Dummy Cameras come in dome cameras, box camera, and professional camera styles to fit in with whatever you may already have. Making these cameras will make a burglar think twice before doing anything stupid. Some even come with actual LED lights to give it that extra real feel and appearance to it.

How To Keep Surveillance On Your Home From Anywhere In The World


Many of you out there probably try not to worry about your home when you are on vacation. You want to spend your whole time relaxing and not having a care in the world until you get back on that plane or back in that car to go back home. But, for some of us who have either had their homes broken into or constantly worry because you may live in a bad neighborhood, VISEC Surveillance Software has you covered. NASA Level Programmers have developed a next generation computer program called VISEC. VISEC turns your home or office computer into a powerful, global-wide video surveillance system in 5 minutes or less.

With VISEC you can keep an eye on everything you ever wanted without spending a fortune. This is very helpful for monitoring your home, office, cars and valuables.
Watch your pets, nanny, babysitter even your kids!
View from any location in the world via the Internet.
Use your computer's IP address to log on and immediately view live or past video.
Record all video activity, or just when motion is detected.
In motion detection mode you can be alerted by email, cell phone or PDA when motion is detected.
Can also be used as a stealth surveillance system allowing the program to operate secretly on your computer. Suspect an abusive nanny or cheating spouse? Simply set VISEC on 'secret' mode and record everything for possible evidence.
VISEC is extremely easy to use. Installation and configuration will only take 5 minutes.

VISEC can record up to four cameras at once using your existing computer and any webcam, wireless or hidden camera. This is great because everyone with a need for recording video can use VISEC. A web cam allows you to connect directly to your computer and this means simple installation through USB ports.

Video surveillance has never been so easy.

Nanny Cams Are A Must For Child Safety


I can not stress this enough. There is nothing, and I mean nothing, more sickening and revolting then seeing those scumbag babysitters caught on tape shaking, and hitting, and tormenting those poor innocent babies whom they are babysitting for. I bet those parents are happy that they had those Nanny Cams installed!! Just the look on the babysitters faces are enough to make me puke. If it was not for the hidden cameras then these acts could be going on forever, and it could have been too late to stop it. You owe it to your child, as a parent, no matter how much you trust the person watching your child, to just keep an extra eye out. Whether it is a stuffed animal camera, clock or mirror cameras or whatever, please, install one. You can get them here.

Window Alert For Home Safety


Ok, so we've covered how to protect from opening of a window and a door by an intruder and a neat little item to take care of that (see Magnetic Window/Door alarm post below). Well, most of the time intruders do not get lucky and find an unlocked door or a window to open. Most of the time the glass must be broken and then he or she reaches into the opening to unlock the lock for easy entrance. Sure, this glass breaking is pretty loud but if you are in a dead sleep chances are you'll MAYBE wake up and by then the glass is already broken. You need something that will allow you to be notified when glass is broken. Another neat product made by our friends at Mace is the Window Alert. This is a 95 decibel glass breakage alarm that attaches to windows and is set off by vibrations if someone tries to break through. Installs easily on any window. Solid, state-of-the-art design. Battery included. It is very easy to install, and a just under 10 bucks is not a financial burden on you. It can be used for travel too for people who stay on the bottom floors of hotels. All in all the Window Alert is a very neat little home protection item that will make your home that much LOUDER to get into.

The Importance Of Window Alarms For Home Safety


I know I am a sound sleeper, I'm not sure about any of the other people out there. I can sleep through the craziest storms and my wife will be mad because she will be up all night listening to the thunder and the lighting. That is why having some kind of window alarm on your windows in your home, the bottom floors especially, is a very good idea.

Magnetic Window/Door alarms are VERY inexpensive. An alarm will sound upon the window being opened. Now, a sound sleeper definately WILL NOT hear a window being slid open. This compact, attractive Magnetic Door/ Window Alarm uses magnetic affinity to initiate its 110 decible siren. The base of the alarm is bolted to door or window frame, the actuator is connected to the window or door. The alarm is activated by opening the door or window. Great for any door or window, particularly those hard to protect sliding glass doors. Requires 3 lithium button cell batteries (included).It is a pitch loud enough that a burglar will want no more of it and will immediately leave. The good news is that the deep sleepers will probably wake up, or if they don't, at least they won't have to worry about sleeping through a burglary. There are a numerous other little alarms out there for next time.

Lip Stick Pepper Spray


Many of you are starting to see the new Lipstick Pepper Spray that is starting to make its way around the self defense family. This is a very cool item for women to own. It looks just like a thing of lipstick except it temporarily blinds and burns the eyes of a would be attacker. Doesn't sound like very pretty lipstick huh? This pepper spray is very easy to use, hold and travel. It fits right into your purse, or pocket maybe if you are walking through a dark parking lot to your car, and with just the removal of the top you can have a continuous spray into your attackers eyes after you press down the button. It is very inexpensive and it even looks fashionable inside of your purse. An attacker, or your friends, will never know that it is NOT lipstick.

Another "Mini" Self Defense Product


Just in case The Runt Stun Gun is not your cup of tea, there is another mini stun gun on the market today. Again, please be sure to check your local stun gun laws here before you purchase anything. And, these lists may not be up to date, these are just the ones we are aware of as of now. Ultimately it is up to you to contact your local jurisdiction.

The Talon Mini is only 4 inches tall, however it possesses 80,000 volts, and although is not as powerful as The Runt, it can still get the job done. It only uses one battery which can be purchased separately and a holster which can be purchased separately as well. You can not quite conceal it in your hand as easy as The Runt can however. But, there is another one on the market that fits in your palm and looks like a blackberry, and that is called The Hot Shot Stun Gun. More on that to come.

For anybody not in the "know how" of the workings of stun guns, I've posted a little bit of information to help you with future stun gun postings:

Stun guns use high voltage and low amperage to temporarily disable an attacker for several minutes. The stun gun does not rely on pain for results. The energy stored in the gun is dumped into the attacker’s muscles causing them to do a great deal of work rapidly. This rapid work cycle instantly depletes the attacker’s blood sugar by converting it to lactic acid. In short, he is unable to produce energy for his muscles, and his body is unable to function properly. The stun gun also interrupts the tiny neurological impulses that control and direct voluntary muscle movement. When the attacker’s neuromuscular system is overwhelmed and controlled by the stun gun he loses his balance. Should the attacker be touching you, the current will NOT pass to your body!

New Mini Stun Gun


Today I wanted to talk about a new "mini" stun gun on the market known as The Runt Stun Gun. This little stun gun packs a real big punch, and it comes in 350k, 650k and 950k volts so it certainly does have a lot of power. At 950k volts it is up there with some of the big boys. The coolest thing about this is that it fits in the palm of your hand and is easily concealable from any would be attackers. Also, it comes with a belt clip so that it can be worn and it looks like a pager from the distance. I love this little guy because it can easily fit in a purse, your pocket or on your hip so it is not obvious that you are running around with a stun gun. Now, I do ask one favor. Please check out your local Stun Gun Laws before making a purchase, and please remember that ultimately YOU are responsible for finding out the exact laws in your jurisdiction. Also, for more information, I have just recently written an article about The Runt Stun Gun here.

Stun Guns For Self Defense


A StunGun, although it's been portrayed poorly in the news lately, is an excellent weapon to have for self defense. It will temporarily paralyze your attacker and send SHOCKWAVES running up and down their bodies. Stunmaster Stun Guns come in volts of 100k to 300k, while the Talon Mini comes in 80k for those people that do not care for all of that power in the palm of their hands. The Stunmaster's can go as high as 625k, 775k, and as high up as 950k volts. This is pretty powerful stuff. Stun Guns will allow an attacker to get right up on you and think that they have gotten you backed into a corner and intimidated. Nothing like a little shock of electrical volts won't solve. More on Stun Batons, the Cell Phone Stun Gun, and the Stun Gun Flashlight soon.

Self-Defense Home Study Course


Hello all. I recently came across this Self Defense Home Study program that sounds like it would be pretty interesting and worthwhile. The good thing about this program is that you can do it at home at your own pace. I hate being in a course where you feel like everybody is better than you or they are picking things up faster than you and it makes you feel less confident. Confidence is key. It is taught by a 4th degree Black Belt in Kajukenbo Karate named Tim Rochford. Tim has successfully competed in sport karate and amateur kickboxing for over 25 years. Along with this course I would also recommend checking out some other Instructional Fighting Videos for more advanced techniques and situations. I will follow up with some more of these soon.

Self Defense With Stun Guns


Ok, now lately there has been A LOT of bad articles coming out about stun guns and the dangers of them and this and that. Ok, but how many times have you seen COPS and some crazy drunk guy comes after a police officer, or worse yet a woman police officer and she's alone, and he/she takes the assailant down with a stun gun? What do you think would have happened to that cop, especially the woman cop, if some big drunk guy who does not have a care in the world starts coming after he or she swinging? The last defense a cop uses is deadly, so a stun gun is a perfect deterrent.

The latest stories coming out on stun guns are that some counties are looking into deaths of inmates and unruly assailants on traffic stops or domestic disturbances. On all of these deaths, most of these deaths were not instant but later heart ailments and later death, were of people who were attacked by stun guns. I am tired of the innocent and good people getting to watch the rest of america feel sorry for these bad guys. These people, most of them, who are in prison are animals and they deserve to be where they are. We shouldn't feel bad that in order to protect ourselves we need to take any means necessary. Life is too valuable not to. Just in case you are interested, here is the link to the latest story:

Docs' double drive to keep children safe - Evening Times


Docs' double drive to keep children safe - Evening Times

I wanted to take a break from Self Defense of the home, and kind of go back to child safety. Well, this article above kind of takes care of both child and home safety. I read this article about 5 minutes ago and I wanted to share it with everybody. This is a prime example of what I was touching on in the child safety post. However, what I loved was that the author goes into more about child safety OUTSIDE of the home, which can be even tougher than the home. Please enjoy this read, and please remember how important this is.

What Better Way Of Self Defense Than To Own A Dog?


However, having a dog is not all fun and games. Do not get me wrong, I love dogs, but they can be a lot of work. Some people may live in an apartment where pets are not allowed, or a newborn is now in the house and a dog may not be the best idea. A barking dog, especially one that sounds big, is normally a pretty good defense against a burglar. I know I would think twice if I were to ever break into a person's house and I heard a big dog on the other side of that door. Or, what I thought was a dog. You need to create the illusion of other people, or animals, in your home to not give out the idea that you are alone and vulnerable. The Electronic Watch Dog is a less expensive alternative. At just under 100 dollars this is the least expensive dog that I have ever seen. Some of the features of this thing are pretty cool too:

Reliable 24-hour protection

No Installation required

Protection with none of the problems of owning a real dog.

Very realistic--barking gets louder and more frequent as intruder gets closer.

Switches from the watchdog to the tranquil sounds of nature with the simple switch of a button.

Variable distance sensitivity (up to 30') as well as volume control.

Senses movement through walls, doors, and glass to alert you of a visitor's arrival.

Maintenance free.

And, best of all, this dog will not wake you up in the middle of the night (unless it senses danger), and you do not have to clean up after it or feed it. It is very easy to set up and maintain you will not even have to worry about it. You owe it to yourself.

Window and Door Alarm


Continuing with the Self Defense of the home, I wanted to bring yet another item to everybody's attention. This one is pretty simple, and I have 6 of them throughout my house. NOt only is it good to keep burglars from getting in and staying quiet, but you can also spy on your kids either sneaking out or coming in late. This is the known as the Magnetic Door/Window Alarm. This tiny little device requires no wiring and runs on batteries. The Magnetic Door/Window Alarm uses magnetic affinity to initiate its 110 decible siren. The base of the alarm is bolted to door or window frame, the actuator is connected to the window or door. The alarm is activated by opening the door or window. Great for any door or window, particularly those hard to protect sliding glass doors. Requires 3 lithium button cell batteries (included). Since it is so easy to install and move it is yet another great item to take with you when you travel to use inside your hotel room. I can not tell you how many stories I have heard of people who's hotel rooms have been broken into. This item would be perfect for travel, or buy multiple one's for different rooms in your house and one for travelling. They are very inexpensive and will substitute for any higher priced full home alarm system. This item could also be used for the door leading out to your pool in your backyard to inform you if an unsupervised child is on his way outback.

More Self Defense In The Home


Now, listen to me carefully. This self defense product is really, really neat. Another item brought you you by Mace, comes the Mace Door/Window Alarm. Unlike the motion detector by Mace, this notifies you of movement on the doorknob. Now, think about it. When you are turning the doorknob of say a bedroom or the front of back door of a person's house, you get that far and you think that you are in the clear. Now, imagine being all happy and reaching for that door knob to enter into the home or the bedroom or whatever, and hearing a 110 db alarm go off. I know I would have to change my under britches. This is exactly what the Mace Door/Window Alarm does. This compact, attractive Magnetic Door/ Window Alarm uses magnetic affinity to initiate its 110 decible siren. The base of the alarm is bolted to door or window frame, the actuator is connected to the window or door. The alarm is activated by opening the door or window. Great for any door or window, particularly those hard to protect sliding glass doors. This alarm will sound if any part of the door or the window in your home is opened and will allow you to take the proper measures. This is another extrememly cool product by Mace. There are quite a few products made by Mace for home protection that will be made really soon.

Self Defense In The Home


Moving on from the last self defense home product comes a very cool product brought to you by Mace. Mace is well known for their defensive sprays, but many people do not realize that they also have a great line of home safety self defense products as well. Once somebody gets into your house it is less likely that you will hear them since no more windows need to be broken. This is where a barking dog (I will get to this soon too) or timer lights or even squeaky floors will help. However, this is not always the case. A good thing to have in your home is some form of motion detector that will alert you to any movement within your home so you can prepare yourself for some self defense. A good item that Mace brings us is an item known as the Mace Motion Alert. This cool little gadget is a passive infrared system that detects motion in any selected area. Compact and attractive, it mounts easily (vertically or horizontally) near any entry area and is battery operated, eliminating any need for wiring. Unit can be coded with a personal security code and can be set to utilize a two-tone entry chime, instead of the alarm sound. This will easily alert you when an intruder is in your home and to take action.

Simple Self Defense


All it takes is one open window. One open window and a complete stranger is inside of your house ready to take control of your family and your possessions. There are a lot of ways to prevent this from happening, however a lot of the home alarm systems may not be what you need. A simple little item may be all that you need to prevent disasters from happening. There is an item that I came across known as the Keep-i Volumetric Home Alarm
that monitors the smallest changes in air pressure created by opening or closing a door or window. There is no installation or wiring necessary and it is completely wireless as well. This item is great for traveling too. A lot of break-ins happen within hotel rooms as well. With the Keep-I Home Alarm you can take it with you and protect yourself on the road as well. Anytime a window or a door is opened in which the Keep-I is installed, an alarm will sound and an attacker will immediately be startled. This makes a great inexpensive security system. No matter how many doors or windows you have, the Keep-I will do it's job and monitor anything being opened to keep you prepared. If you do not like the concept behind the Keep-I, then stay tuned for more window alarms tomorrow and for the rest of the week.

Self Defense Is Important Inside The Home Too

Self Defense should not be limited to public places. Everyone knows the old saying that most accidents happen within 5 miles of the home. Well, it goes without saying that you need to be prepared INSIDE your home too. There are a number of products out that protect your home from intruders. These products include your obvious alarm systems, monitoring systems, and high tech surveillance systems. These items do a great job, but not all people can afford them. They need an affordable self defense home system, without monthly fees. Simple items work as well such as the Voice Alert Driveway And Home Alarm. This system gives warnings when
  • Cars are coming up the driveway
  • Children go inside your tool shed
  • Intruders approach the front or backyard
  • Someone enters your garage
  • Visitors are walking to the front door
  • Your parked boat or motor home has been boarded
  • Kids or pets are trampling your flowers...

or anything else you set your alerts to. The Voice Alert Driveway And Home Alarm is a new annunciator system featuring wireless PIR sensors transmitters and a remote receiver/speaker base unit. Users record their own alert messages and are then notified with their own voice message when activity in a monitored area is detected.

When it comes to self defense, it does not have to be expensive or too elaborate. The simple things work too. Stay tuned for more self defense products for your home.

Child Safety Is Often Overlooked In Self Defense

Self Defense is not only about yourself, and it does not always concern fighting. I keep getting all of these e-mails and I have been reading news snippets lately of children and how to keep them safe in the home. Well, my first thought is duh, watch them at all times!! But, even though I do not have kids I know that this is impossible to do. Child safety is often overlooked, and lets face it, some parents just are not aware as much as they probably should be. Heck, I can hardly watch my own self half of the time and I am always with me. Now, obviously there are so many ways a child can get hurt. I heard a news teaser the other day that said that one dangerous item in your house is your entertainment center that holds your television. Now, think about it. A child is just learning how to walk and anything bigger than them is going to immediately grab their attention. The child then walks up to the entertainment center, reaches up and pulls him or herself up and then the tv, or worse, the entire entertainment center falls over on top of them. This can not end positively. Now, the only way to safe proof that from happening is to just keep an eye out. However, there are smaller ways that you can prevent accidents from happening. A child's safety should be your number one concern when inside, and outside, of your house. I will get to outside of your house issues next time though. There is a product out that is called the Kindergard Safety Kit that is perfect for those little problems at home. It is not pricey at all, and should be a necessity for your Child's Safety at home. The Kindergard Safety Kit contains 12 peices in all. There are 2 cabinet latches, 4 outlet plugs, a cabinet lock, a door knob guard, and 4 corner cushions all developed to provide your child with the basics that are often overlooked. While you can watch you child with the larger problems, the smaller problems are what is often not taken care of. Check out the bottom link for more information.
