  • 4 Best Security Gadgets On A Budget

    Inexpensive security devices

     

    Looking to stay safe but not spend a ton of money? Personal safety is becoming more apparent in people's lives because companies are coming out with useful, effective and inexpensive gadgets to keep people safe. Here are some of the best security gadgets for only under $10.

    Trying to improve your personal or home security on a budget can definitely be a challenge. Though it’s easy to get caught up in advanced security gadgets and sophisticated equipment – you don’t have to spend a lot to make small changes to your security. Here are a few useful gadgets to help improve your security – both at home, and in self defense situations.

    Alarm.com iPhone App
    While not technically a gadget in itself, the Alarm.com iPhone app definitely seems to be popular among iPhone users. This app allows you to tap into the video feed of your security cameras, as well as arm/disarm your system remotely from your phone. It also features a running “history” of your security devices, so you can see what activity has taken place over the past several hours. The best part about this useful app? It’s completely free for existing Alarm.com customers! If you’re not a customer of this company, don’t worry. Many other home security companies are now also offering free apps for iPhone, Android and other smartphones.

    Kubotan/Kubaton
    This cool little security gadget is quickly becoming a favorite among women, due to its small size and easy portability. It is designed to be held in the fist, usually as a self-defense technique against muggers. Many self defense classes for women are now teaching some of the standard kubotan defensive tactics. A basic kubotan will usually cost you anywhere from $6 – $10, and can be found in many online retail stores.
