My Story

Why did the scarecrow win an award for home safety?

Because he was outstanding in his field! 
Pun intended.

Hi there 🙂

I am glad you were not put off by my icebreaker dad joke. I hope you will continue reading.

My name is Marvin McAllister. With a background in engineering and my love for Raspberry Pi devices and for creating safe and secure living environments for individuals and families, I have decided to create this website to share my knowledge with others who are looking to protect their homes and privacy in both the physical and digital world.

And no, I don’t just mean talking about installing fancy gadgets or spouting off generic advice. I am talking about actionable, results-driven solutions that actually work.

You see, I believe that your home should be your sanctuary—a place where you feel secure and protected.

Beyond physical safety, home safety extends to our mental and emotional well-being. A home that is free from safety concerns allows us to relax and unwind, fostering a sense of comfort and tranquility.

When we feel secure within our own walls, we can fully recharge and face the challenges of the outside world.

Prioritizing home safety is a proactive approach to avoiding potentially devastating consequences. 

Simple measures such as installing carbon monoxide detectors or securing furniture to prevent tipping can prevent accidents that might otherwise result in injury or even loss of life.

By being vigilant and proactive, we can significantly reduce the likelihood of accidents and emergencies.

In addition to protecting ourselves and our families, home safety also extends to safeguarding our belongings and property.

Measures such as investing in sturdy locks, security cameras, and alarm systems can deter burglars and intruders, providing an added layer of defense against potential threats. 

Embracing a culture of home safety also sets a positive example for future generations. By instilling good safety habits from a young age, we empower our children to make informed decisions and prioritize their well-being as they grow older.

Teaching them about fire safety, the importance of wearing seatbelts, and how to recognize potential hazards instills valuable life skills that will serve them well into adulthood.

Now, I don’t consider myself a “home safety guru” or anything like that, but I have been deeply involved in this field for more than a decade.

However, let’s be real – I’m far from having all the answers. There are plenty of things I am still learning myself,  trying to figure it out, one day at a time. 

Welcome to my corner of the internet.

Hope to see you in the comments!
