Our homes are our dwellings, where we spend a large portion of our time enjoying the subtle aspects of life with our friends and family. It is where we sleep, unwind, and relish down-time with our kin. But you just never know if someone is lurking around your neighborhood with bad intentions. And another concern is the possibility of property damage from leaking pipes, fires, and many other unexpected incidents. There are a multitude of options that can go a long way to keeping your property and family safe and your sanity intact.

ITS HOT OUT HERE IN THESE STREETS!

As the heat becomes more unbearable and power outage rates rise, we are using a lot more energy from generators and inverters to try and stay cool. Ironically, all of that energy also makes climate change worse which means its just going to get hotter. In the U.S. alone, people already use nearly 200 billion kilowatt hours of electricity for cooling each year, and Nigeria would completely dwarf that (if we actually had electricity that is…#VoteWisely). But new technology on the home cooling front could be a small solution to all of these problems.
