Last Minute Home Security Gifts

By now, you’ve probably completed most of your holiday shopping. If you’re like most people, though, you’re still in need of a few last-minute items before you can put your list away for another year. Whether you’re at a loss as to what to buy the guy who has everything or whether you’re just looking for a few additional stocking-stuffers, Home Security Store has what you need.

College Students

Living in a college dorm doesn’t mean that security is guaranteed. It also does not have to be sacrificed, which is why we offer wireless security systems that are easy to install and are just as easy for your college student to transport to a new location when it’s time to move on. Consider something like the Skylink Wireless Home Security System, which does not require any special programming or wiring and is ready to use out of the box. This is a great starter alarm system and it can be expanded with other accessories, such as smoke detectors and an auto dialer, which will automatically dial up to nine different telephone numbers in an emergency.

Active Seniors

Elderly relatives who live alone will love the convenience and security that comes with a video intercom. Installing one of these devices means that an occupant does not have to actually go to a front door in order to answer it for unexpected visitors. Gifts like the SVAT Hands-Free 2-Wire Color Video Intercom System are easy to install and can connect directly to a home’s doorbell. When a visitor presses the doorbell, occupants inside can see who is on the video monitor and speak to the person while still safely inside of the home and without ever approaching the front door. This particular system can also accommodate a special door strike, which will allow an occupant to remotely unlock the door to allow a visitor’s entry once it is considered safe to do so.


Home Security Store wants to help you protect every member of your family, including your pets. This is why we carry items like the Safety Turtle Pet Velcro Strap which can be attached to your pet’s collar and will alert you if ever she or he falls into your swimming pool. You can find this item and others to protect your pet (and children) in the Child Safety section on our store’s main page. Remember, that some dogs cannot swim and, of those that can, some are just too small to rescue themselves after falling into a large swimming pool.


Teenagers (as well as college students and every tech savvy person on your gift list) will appreciate receiving a gift like the Spraytect Pepper Spray Combo Pack for iPhone this year. Since so many people spend their waking hours glued to a smartphone, why not make sure that a personal protection item is also at their fingertips? This nifty item not only holds a smartphone, but also houses a pepper spray cartridge, which can be sprayed directly from the case.

Stocking Stuffers, Spy Gear, Etc.

Let’s face it, most people are loosely familiar with personal and home security devices. Most would also agree that they need protection, but few people with busy lifestyles actually take the time to shop for security items…until AFTER something like a break-in or an attack occurs. You can help make the process of shopping for and buying security items a lot easier for your loved ones simply by placing a Home Security Store gift card in everyone’s stocking this holiday.

Mostly everyone is fascinated by spy gear, which is why we have an entire section dedicated to such devices. From neckties that double as hidden cameras to USB flashdrives, which can be used to covertly record audio conversations, Home Security Store has something for every would-be private eye on your shopping list.

Last, but not least, if you know someone who already has an alarm system at home, but who does not have monitoring service, why not give them the gift of this added protection? At only $8.95 per month (a mere fraction of what most alarm dealers offer) you can be sure that a loved one’s home is being professionally monitored 24/7. This means that help is always a mere phone call away…even if a homeowner is not able to actually get to a phone during a security emergency! In addition to the protection inherent in this service, many insurance companies also offer discounts for homes with monitored security.

We hope we’ve made your holiday shopping a wee bit easier this year. More information and consumer reviews for each of these suggestions can be found on our store’s main page. Remember that we offer free shipping options and our tech support team is always available to answer any questions that you may have.
