June is National Safety Month and there are many changes, big and small, that can be made to make your home a safer space. From kitchen lights to smart home gadgets and everything in between, here are our top picks for home safety.
The LED Linear Light from Legrand can be used in many ways, whether you’re looking to brighten up a countertop workspace or illuminate your kitchen, all while keeping counter space clutter-free. The item can also be paired with the adorne Paddle Dimmer to dim and turn lights on and off. It is recommended that one linear light be used for every 18″ of modular track for safety.
Protect your home from water damage and leaks with Flo by Moen. The smart water valve monitors toilets, showers, faucets and pipes in the foundation behind walls, detecting leaks and stopping them before damage occurs. Flo by Moen is installed on the main water supply line to your home and is controlled via an app on your smartphone. Not only can you turn your water on or off from the app, the valve will automatically shut off water if needed.
Anywhere the addition of subtle light is needed, the adorne Nightlight from Legrand is the perfect fix. Providing a soft glow, the nightlight is perfect for hallways or children’s bedrooms. It also features a removable light that provides additional safety.
There are certain places in your home such as a pantry or garage where the convenience of an automatic light switch truly makes a difference. The Motion Sensor Switch with Auto On/Off from Legrand uses motion-sensing technology to to just that. The switch can be used on its own to control a light from one location or paired with up to two additional switches to control from up to three locations.
A smoke alarm is a necessity for home safety. The 4-In-1 Smart Alarm from Craftmade responds 87% faster to slow smoldering fires than the average, making it a great option if your smoke alarm needs a refresh.
Grab bars are a simple addition to a bathroom that provide stability and safety. They provide a way to maintain balance as well as something to hold onto in case of a fall. Not only can they be installed in showers and tubs, but also in the bathroom in general. You can find grab bars in different lengths and styles, depending on usage.
Floodlights can be used to illuminate the exterior of your home, allowing for better lighting and a safer outdoor space. The Two Light Covered Flood with Motion Sensor from Craftmade in Matte Black is a wall-mounted fixture that features a motion detector and double the light output.
The LED Dual Head Security Light from Nuvo Lighting in White offers security features in addition to a dual head light. It also comes equipped with a motion sensor.
A good choice to coastal saltwater areas, the Floodlight by Acclaim Lighting in White is made of durable UV resistant polycarbonate. It’s also adjustable and lightweight.
