IN ADDITION TO THE VISION LOSS COMMUNITY, BOTH DISABLED AND ELDERLY CONSUMERS SHOULD CONSIDER EACH OF THE FOLLOWING FOR PURCHASE:

1.BATTERY-POWERED BULLHORN OR AIR HORN FOR HOME SAFETY AND SECURITY.

BOTH OF THESE DEVICES CAN SERVE AS AN EMERGENCY HAILER DURING A NATURAL DISASTER OR TERRORISM, AS WELL AS FOR CRIME PREVENTION.

POSSIBLE RETAILERS OF CALL-FOR-HELP OR GET-AWAY VOICE MAGNIFIERS ARE:

A. POLICE EQUIPMENT

B. SAFETY DEVICES

C. BOATING SUPPLIES

D. SPORTING GOODS

E. SECURITY PRODUCTS

F. ELECTRONIC HARDWARE

2. FRONT-DOOR INTERCOM CAN BE A VERY VALUABLE SECURITY INVESTMENT. WHEN YOU CANNOT LOOK OUTSIDE TO SEE WHO IS AT YOUR DOOR ,VOICE IDENTIFICATION AND OTHER CAREFUL SCREENING CAN LITERALLY BE A LIFE-SAVER IN OUR HIGH-CRIME SOCIETY.

HOME IMPROVEMENT CENTERS AND HARDWARE STORES, AS WELL AS SOME OF THE ABOVE RETAILERS, OFTEN SELL ENTRANCE INTERCOMS. HOWEVER, BE SURE THE PRODUCT SELECTED HAS PHONE-LIKE VOICE CLARITY.

3. CHIME AND ALARM ANNOUNCER TRIGGERED BY THE OPENING OF A FRONT DOOR IS A SMART INSTALLATION FOR PRIVACY AND SECURITY.

THE FOLLOWING PRODUCT OFFERS THE LISTED FEATURES WITHOUT THE UNCERTAINTY (NO ALARM) OR OVER-SENSITIVITY (FALSE ALARM) OF SOUND-DETECTORS AND MOTION-DETECTORS, AS WELL AS POSSIBLE PROBLEMS WITH SIGNAL INTERFERENCE BETWEEN THE SENSOR AND RECEIVER:

A. FAMILIAR 9-VOLT BATTERY

B. RELIABLE MAGNETIC CONTACT-SWITCH

C. DOOR-OPEN CHIME MODE

D. DOOR-OPEN ALARM MODE

E. DOOR-CLOSED PANIC-BUTTON MODE

SERIOUSLY CONSIDER THE

RADIO SHACK

DOOR ALARM AND ENTRY CHIME

(BATTERY NOT INCLUDED).

4. JINGLE BELLS CAN BE A SECURITY DEVICE WHEN ATTACHED TO THE SCREEN FOR A PATIO-DOOR OR ROOM-WINDOW. THE FAMILIAR HOOKS USED TO ATTACH CHRISTMAS TREE JINGLE BELLS WORK JUST FINE ON THE MESH OF HOME AND APARTMENT SCREENS. PLUS, THE ONE-INCH BRASS JINGLE BELLS HOOKED TO A SCREEN GIVE BAD GUYS A GOOD VISUAL WARNING AND YOU A REASSURING SOUND ALERT.
