Last June, my wife as well as I started a major apartment remodeling project, however every one of us gutted the upstairs bathroom, laundry room as well as master study room right down to the bare studs, then our plan was to insulate, update the plumbing, put down a modern ceramic brick floor as well as update all of the fixtures.
Every one of us bought a modern vanity as well as bathroom mirror, faucets, toilet, showerhead, washer, dryer as well as light fixturesâ€¦ The project was harshly labor intensive, but while hanging drywall on the ceiling, I managed to tear my trapezius muscle. The pain was so dire that I was unable to stand up for more than a hour or 2 at a time, and i couldn’t clean my hair or even stand up for very long. I was flat on my back on the couch for nearly 6 weeks. I was limited to seeing TV, studying on my kindle as well as playing on my PC. I started looking into conveniences as well as updates for our home. I researched as well as ordered a smart thermostat as well as a Roomba vacuum cleaner. I came across information about apartment security systems. I started studying up on these wireless innovations that integrate into the apartment without any disruption. Most of these systems include monitoring by a security business. If there is a complication or emergency, the security business alerts the correct authorities. The system I chose includes a smoke detector, carbon monoxide detector, moisture sensor as well as motion-activated lights. There are surveillance cameras that allow myself and others to watch real time video as well as see both the front as well as back yards. I get an alert on my PC if someone steps up onto our porch as well as I can see who it is as well as speak with them. Through an app on my PC, I can control the automated door locks as well as open the garage door. Even while I was recovering from my injury, I enjoyed having the security system.
