A New Job Promotion and a New Place to Live

The company I have been with for a few years gave me a great promotion as head manager of one of our branch offices in another city. I was pretty excited about getting to move to another location on my company’s dime, but I was unsure of where I was to live. I was told that one of our employees could get find a new place for me to rent, and that they often have employees live in the Hernon apartments. I asked them to hold off on securing a place there for me until I had a chance to check it out myself.

While I was grateful that my company will pay for move in costs, I was not comfortable with someone else picking the actual place that I will live. I can be quite picky when it comes to amenities and such, and really needed to have the final say. Whatever place I would be choosing to live in needed to have some options that suit my lifestyle.

I went to the website for the apartments and found the page with photos of the complex. I was actually impressed right away. The place looked a lot like many of the newer complexes in my own city that I had my eye on. There was a photo of the complex gym that looked fantastic. Whenever an apartment complex states they have a fitness center, I always imagine it to be dreary and have a total of three exercise machines. This one had all the equipment you need!

The photos of inside the apartment won me over in the end. It had some nice design features that I often don’t see in many places that are for rent. After seeing that and knowing they had a fitness center, I called work and told them to get started on working on getting me move in there. I am really looking forward to it!

Colorado ADT Security Combined with Bathroom Safe Rooms

Things are different her where we live in Colorado now. So many people have moved here from other parts of the country. Some of them do not share the same ideas we have about community that we have with the neighbors on my street. There have been a number of break ins over the last year. We decided to call Colorado ADT security to get a home alarm system simply for its deterrent effects. The early warning feature of a home security system is nice. We have had the bathroom in each bedroom reenforced to be safe areas if there is a break in. My wife and I can go into the Master bathroom, and the kids can jump out of bed and go right into their bathrooms for safety.

Any sort of safe area is only made possible if you can get to it in time. The early warning of an alarm system makes this possible. We have done drills to make sure we know to go straight for our safe areas and lock the doors if the alarm goes off. It only takes a few minutes of training to accomplish an automatic act that could save a life. My wife and I have made it a point to grab our smartphones or tablets if they are close by and take them in the safe room with us. This way we can make sure the kids are okay. We have video cameras inside the house that we can see remotely through a secure connection on our wireless devices.

The nice thing is that none of this cost a fortune. It was all very affordable. Even the monthly monitoring is very affordable. The sturdy walls and high-strength doors for the safe areas look like regular walls and doors. No one except us even knows they are actually safe rooms.
