Our Mission

My name is John S. Fox, and I am an expert in home security, home safety, business security, and business safety. What’s more, I am truly passionate about my field and dedicate most of my waking hours to research and expanding my knowledge.

In case you want to know more about me, check out my credentials in the Author Bio section. For now, let’s just say that I have been around in the security and safety industry long enough to know that they are about so much more than alarms, locks, infrared vision, passwords, and motion sensors. Rather, what’s truly at stake is your life, health, and well-being — and those of your family.

 

That is why my goal is to help you save time and money and avoid making wrong decisions about your household and business. I do all the heavy-duty work so that you can focus on what you can do best — enjoying your life and living it to its fullest potential.

My website specializes in the following areas:

 

To the uninitiated, it may seem pretty straightforward. However, there’s a lot more to these short bullet-points than meets the eye. I bet you’d be surprised by the sheer amount of information, products, services, and downright noise that I sift through and handpick for you — so that you don’t have to.

What It Is That I Do?

My aim is to research every single new safety and security product and service out there — how do I do that?

Firstly, my team and I read up all there is to read on every product and service. But we don’t just use Google — we also reach out to the sellers, manufacturers, and service providers to learn first-hand insider information and get their point of view.

Then, we personally test and try out everything. That costs us a lot of time, effort, and trial and error — and far too many holes in our walls than we care to count.

What This Website Is Not

I am certainly not the be-all and end-all authority when it comes to safety and security, and nor do I aspire to be. I am just someone with decades-long experience in the field who has gained a lot of knowledge along the way. My goal is to pass on that knowledge to you.

With this in mind, never take anything you read here or anywhere else online for granted. Form the habit to double-check, cross-reference, and third-party verify any data, facts, and claims. That, in fact, is the number one tip when it comes to safety and security.

Why Should Safety and Security Matter to You?

Why should you either care about what I do or take an interest in safety and security matters?

To put it simply and rather bluntly — because your life and that of your family is at stake.

Throughout my career, I have witnessed first-hand the often-devastating results of game-changing events such as:

What we do

I’ve seen lives change forever in a split second. I’ve seen homes being destroyed, families being torn apart, and businesses go down to ruin as a result of a single, innocent security oversight. Take my word for it; these are not a sight to behold.

Your family, health, well-being, and business are precious, because they have taken a lifetime to build. Unfortunately, however, it only takes a single second to destroy them.

For that reason, don’t take anything for granted.

Don’t just be grateful for each moment, every person, and every thing. Look after them and take measures to protect them as well. Do your research, educate yourself, stay on top of recent developments, and try out new things.
