2023 Home Security Cameras Trends

2023 Home Security Trends - Red Safety & Security

2023 Home Security Cameras Trends

Nowadays, security cameras are a common sight in commercial areas. CCTV cameras are considered one of the safest and easiest systems to install, as well as set up. Security cameras are also extremely cost-effective and used almost by every individual in order to protect their home or property these days. Currently, home security cameras have rapidly become popular. Significant technological advancements enabled high-quality video recording capability and affordability. 
Home security cameras enable you to view your home at any time from any location. Installing these home security cameras in the house is an intelligent move for various reasons. For instance, the presence of a home security system outside your home can deter any form of criminal activity. Furthermore, the home security system not only restricted to the protection of your house, but it can also enable you to keep checking your children while you are at the office. If someone is having older adults in their home, it is the most convenient option to check. 
Here we have highlighted a couple of essential benefits and trends of home security cameras. 
Wi-Fi Capabilities and Speed
People who are planning to buy into the smart house growth this year, they will require a faster network to use their devices at maximum speed. For better security, you need to use Wi-Fi 6, which is the most trending level of Wi-Fi with exceptional speed for almost nine connected devices – rather than today’s average Wi-Fi speeds support. Wi-Fi 6 can also enhance the battery life as well as the security of your device with a WAP3 protocol. 
However, while using Wi-Fi 6, you also need to update your old devices like smartphones and laptops because a new Wi-Fi version won’t support the old devices. Furthermore, you will also need to rely on 5G for your mobile device because whenever you don’t have Wi-Fi, you can able to check what will be happening at your home. 
AI and Data 
One of the biggest threats to data is inefficient surveillance that allows hackers to trespass and break through the firewalls of the system. In the wrong hands, sensitive data can have severe consequences on the lives of individuals. Fortunately, AI and machine learning technologies in the last few years have improved drastically, allowing real-time surveillance and pattern detection to take place.
Today, AI has almost made humans obsolete given how fast they can detect security breaches and take necessary actions for it. Facial, event, and object recognition system have dramatically increased reliance on security protocols and is now being used in all electronic devices.
Smart homes are the perfect example of such high levels of security. Not only can people keep track of what happens outside the residence but inside as well. Any breach or property trespassing can easily be detected using a surveillance camera, biometric identification, and smart alarm systems – all controlled through your smartphone.
Easy and Self Installation
One of the best advantages of these home security systems is remarkably simple to install. Due to technological advancement, the home security system no longer needs walls peppered holes, and super-expensive installation set-ups. 
24-Hours Support 
Constant real-time monitoring – home security cameras enables you to monitor every critical area of your home 24/7. Regardless of your location, you can easily keep an eye on your home any time through your smartphone or other devices. With affordable cost, home security systems also provide peace of mind and protect your home from unwanted threats.

No one prefers intrusion or unauthorized access into their lives, and we at Red Safety prefer to keep it that way.

Importance of Having a Security System

When it comes to Home Security Systems – it all about financial and psychological security. Do you know that Washington has one of the highest crime rates in the United States? Which means the bigger your home is, the bigger your problems will be. Because the more you have, the more you have to lose.

Home Security System – Top Features

The protection of home and your loved ones is and will always be a priority. Not to sound skeptic, but no matter how secure you think you are, there is always a possibility. It is important you have a Home Security System that offers a plethora of security features so much possibilities can be reduced. Our experts at Red Safety have made a list of 5 essential features for your ideal Home Alarm System that can help reduce such possibilities.

Door Bell Camera

Your doorbell should do far more than just tell you there is an intruder. What if your doorbell was equipped with a camera? That way, you are not only informed but also well aware of what is happening on your property.

Voice Control Capabilities

Having a security system with voice recognition capabilities is like being in a Sci-Fi movie. Not only you an additional layer of security, but you also don’t need any limb movement to secure your home – a simple voice command would suffice.

User-Friendly Interface

This is too obvious. If your home security system doesn’t have a user-friendly interface, you might as well don’t have it in the first place. The interface of any security system should be easy to understand, allowing smooth navigation between features.

Motion Sensors

Billionaires cannot leave their homes at the mercy of their guards. Thieves and burglars have become very smart. Hence you need to get smarter. Having motion sensors at your home gives you the assurance that no one except the residents can enter your property – not even a single step.

Benefits Of Taking a CPR Class

CPR Training - Red Safety & Security

Benefits Of Taking a CPR Class

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a life-saving procedure that is considered as a crucial first-aid for people who are having a cardiac arrest or shortage of breath. A cardiac arrest can cause brain damage within minutes, so CPR is significantly critical in saving a life. There are many benefits of learning and taking a CPR class.

CPR includes rescue-breathing, which improves the oxygen supply to the lungs of a patient, and chest compression which ensures the flow of oxygen-rich blood for restoring normal heartbeat and breathing. Providing CPR can double or triple the chances of surviving a cardiac arrest. 

Despite its importance, CPR training is often overlooked or trivialized in many organizations. CPR training allows people to preserve life until the paramedics arrive. However, individuals with CPR certifications can perform CPR in emergencies, whether they are a medical professional or not. 

Here are some of the benefits of getting trained and certified in CPR. 


Cardiac arrests can result in death if not treated on time. According to the CDC, heart attack claims 600,00 lives every year in the USA, making it the leading cause of death. The problem here is that you cannot always rely on emergency services to arrive on time. The person might pass away before the paramedics even arrive. CPR training becomes critical in such situations.  You can make use of the skills taught in your CPR class to help save a life. 


With soaring heart attack rates, CPR is the key life-saving procedure. About 9 in 10 people died who suffered from a heart attack outside the hospital. But CPR can help turn the odds in our favor. If performed on time, that is within the first few minutes of cardiac arrest, CPR can increase the chances of survival. 

The tools and skills you learn from your CPR class enable you to become a lifesaver rather than a bystander. CPR certification allows you to make the right decisions in case of cardiac emergencies. 


CPR training is crucial in organizations; it helps create a safe environment for all employees. CPR training and certification can be a vital skill, especially for people who are applying in the medical or nursing field. Most nursing fields require some level of CPR training and prefer individuals with CPR certification. 


A person with the knowledge of CPR is considered a valuable member of the workplace and generally of society. A CPR certified person can be called in emergencies and trusted with someone’s life. In some occupations, CPR is a pre-requisite. While in other occupations, CPR certification is highly valued. 

CPR training and certification give you the potential to save lives. At Red Hands Safety, we enable people to become a part of the solution. Our knowledgeable professionals equip you with tools and skills that will help you step up in an emergency. Moreover, our First Aid and AED training classes allow you to preserve life before medical personnel arrives. 

At Red Hands Safety, we offer CPR classes to individuals and in groups. Join one of our CPR classes in Tukwila WA, Renton WA and Seattle WA.

Top Home Security Tips During the Holidays Part I

Holiday Tips Part 1 - Red Safety & Security

Top Home Security Tips During the Holidays Part I

The holidays are just around the corner, and although it should be a time of celebration and joy, it can also pose some security risks for your home. Many people go out of town to visit friends and family during the holidays, leaving their homes vacant for days on end. Unfortunately, burglars are excellent at spotting vulnerable houses to target during the holiday season. With these four home security tips, you can add an extra layer of protection to your home while you’re away this holiday season: 

Use Social Media with Caution

It’s tempting to post photos of your holiday adventures on social media for your friends and family to see, but it can also be risky. Public social media accounts are accessible for anyone to view, including burglars. Posting your location and holiday vacation photos can signal to suspicious people that you’re out of town, and your house is vacant, which may lead to break-ins. 

Install a Quality Doorbell Camera 

Doorbell cameras are an increasingly popular home security add-on, and for a good reason. These cameras are simple to install and are easily set up on your smartphone so that you can see who is coming and going at all times. If you’re out of town this holiday season, checking the camera can give you peace of mind as you keep a watchful eye on your front door. Plus, burglars who see cameras may be less inclined to go through with a robbery, according to 

Give Your Home Security System a Checkup 

If you already have a top-notch home security system, good for you! However, it is crucial that you periodically check that your system is working correctly to ensure your security and safety. Make it a goal before you head out of town to check the battery life of each of your home security components, including any cameras and motion detectors. 

Avoid Package Deliveries While You’re Gone 

Nothing indicates a vacant home quite like a pile of packages by the front door day after day. If burglars target your home for frequent drivebys, they’ll see that your packages haven’t been taken inside for days on end and will quickly pick up on your absence. If you think your packages may arrive while you’re gone, ask a neighbor that you trust to take the packages from your porch and keep them in a safe place until you return from your holiday trip. 

At Red Safety, we take home security seriously. We can help you install the right security system for your home to give you the peace of mind you deserve while you’re at home or away. Our team of security experts proudly provide home security installations in the Tukwila, Renton, and Seattle areas. Schedule a free consultation with us today!

CPR Training Tips: Signs of Choking

CPR Training - Red Safety & Security

CPR Training Tips: Signs of Choking

Choking is one of the leading causes of accidental death in the United States. People of all ages can experience choking, but the most susceptible to death by choking are small children under the age of 5 and older adults. If administered quickly enough, CPR is an effective way to eliminate the choking hazard and possibly save a life. 

Here are four of the most common signs of serious choking to look for before administering CPR

Uncontrollable Coughing 

Coughing caused by choking is different than a cough from a cold or flu. If something is blocking a person’s airway, the body’s natural response is to get rid of the object by coughing it out. According to Healthline, if you notice someone presenting uncontrollable coughing, check for additional symptoms such as bluish skin, loss of consciousness, the inability to speak or cry, wheezing, a weak cough, and panic. All of these may indicate a severe choking situation that needs immediate attention. 

Struggling to Breathe 

It is important to keep in mind that choking does not always cause a cough. Sometimes the object in the airway may be too large, making it impossible to cough. Or, if the person’s breathing is severely compromised, they may drift in and out of consciousness and be unable to cough at all. The Heimlich maneuver, also known as abdominal thrusts, is especially helpful for clearing the airway at this stage. To successfully perform the Heimlich maneuver, stand behind the choking person, and wrap your arms around their waist. Then, make a fist with one hand over the person’s belly button, grasp the fist with your other hand, and give quick bursts of 6-10 abdominal thrusts to attempt to dislodge the object. 

Grasping Throat

Grasping the throat is an indication of choking when the person is unable to speak. Alongside the other choking signs, it is safe to assume that the person is choking and needs immediate help. Failure to call an ambulance or administer back blows (five firm strikes between the shoulder blades while supporting the person’s chest) may result in loss of consciousness. 

Passing Out 

Depending on how long the person has been choking, they may experience loss of consciousness and pass out. If the person is unresponsive, place them on their back and tilt their head back to raise their chin and open their airway. Check inside their mouth to see if there is a visible object that is blocking their airway, but never reach inside their throat to try and remove anything yourself unless it is clearly inside the mouth, not the throat. Call for help and administer chest compressions to stabilize the person while you wait. 

Performing the Heimlich maneuver and properly administering CPR can save a person experiencing choking symptoms. No matter your work or lifestyle, it is always beneficial to be prepared for choking situations so that you can be of assistance to someone in need and potentially save a life.
