Personal safety at home used to be limited to hardwired security systems with monthly monitoring plans. And while such security systems are still available, the world of personal safety has greatly expanded in the last several decades. Here at Safety Technology, we are fully involved in the personal safety market as both a wholesaler and dropshipper. We want to introduce you to the fact that you can sell home protection products as a retailer, either online or in person.
You Can Start a Home Protection Business
More people these days are looking to get out of the rat race and into some sort of self-employment gig that lets them control their own lives. Self-employment is not for everyone, but it is ideal for people with an entrepreneurial spirit and a willingness to work hard. If that sounds like you, starting a home protection business might be right up your alley.
There are numerous models for such a business. The easiest and least risky way to get started is to sell with a dropshipping partner like Safety Technology. Dropshipping requires a minimal investment in your own website and some initial marketing. Once you are up and running, steady sales will generate additional sales through word-of-mouth and marketing.
How does dropshipping work? It’s simple. You list our home protection products on your own e-commerce website. Customers purchase from you at retail prices; you purchase from us at wholesale prices. Here’s the beauty of dropshipping: you don’t stock any inventory. Rather, we handle the inventory and shipping on your behalf. We ship products directly to your customers in packaging that identifies your company as the retailer.
There are other ways to sell home protection products without dropshipping. For example, you could buy products in bulk from Safety Technology and then sell them at local trade shows, summer festivals, gun shows, flea markets, or in pop-up shops. If you are really ambitious, you could combine these more traditional retail sales with dropshipping.
The key is to zero in on your target audience and market directly to them. For example, you might want to focus on middle class families concerned about home burglary.
Sell Diversion Safes
The middle-class families you want to target likely have certain items burglars consider valuable. These are items that are easily sold on the black market, like jewelry and cell phones, for example. A diversion safe would be an ideal product to market to those families.
Diversion safes are safes designed to look like ordinary household products. They work because burglars do not tend to pay any attention to them. Statistics show that burglars head straight to the master bedroom to find things to steal. So if you hid your jewelry in a container disguised as a can of brand-name shaving cream, a burglar would likely pass by without even checking the can. And that’s provided he/she ever makes it to the bathroom.
Diversion safes have been around for hundreds of years. In the modern era, manufacturers are sophisticated enough to make diversion safes look like easily recognized household products from brand-name manufacturers. A well-placed diversion safe can keep burglars away from your customers’ valuables.
Dropship Motion-Activated Alarms
Motion-activated alarms are another popular item with middle-class families. A motion-activated alarm can do a number of different things, depending on its design and manufacturer. The basic concept is simple: the alarm is mounted near an entry area in order to detect motion by way of passive infrared light. If motion is detected, an alarm sounds to alert occupants of the home.
There are motion-activated alarms that make dog-barking sounds. There are others that emit loud squealing sounds guaranteed to get someone’s attention. All the motion-activated alarms we carry are completely wireless, so installation is a breeze. Your customers will love them thanks to their affordability and effectiveness.
We Sell Wholesale Home Alarms
Few home protection products have sold quite as well over the last decade as the home alarm. And make no mistake, we don’t mean home alarm systems with 24-hour monitoring. We are talking about a full range of alarms that use a variety of means to help keep you safe at home.
Of course, we can be your supplier of complete wireless home security systems that include window and door sensors, motion sensors, and a keypad control center. You can order and sell additional components to add to those systems as well.
We offer voice alert alarms capable of telling your customers when someone is approaching the door, entering the shed, getting too close to the boat or car. We offer the motion-activated alarms discussed in the previous section. Indeed, there is an alarm for every need.
Not every homeowner is interested in a full-scale home security system with remote monitoring. For many people, our home alarms are a better option. You can be their supplier by including home alarms in your retail inventory. Buy from us in bulk or sell home alarms via the dropshipping method.
Wholesale Pool Alarms
Move beyond home alarms with your customers who also own swimming pools. That’s right, you can add wholesale pool alarms to the list of home protection items you sell. Pool alarms reduce the risk of death or injury to young children who might accidentally fall into a swimming pool while no one is around.
If you are not sure how necessary pool alarms are, consider this: more than 900 children die in pool-related drownings every year. That is 900 too many. How many of those deaths can actually be avoided by installing a pool alarm to alert adults of an emergency?
Those of us at Safety Technology have a special place in our hearts for kids. That’s one of the reasons we deal in pool alarms. If you plan to sell home protection products, we implore you to include pool alarms. A good pool alarm could end up being the most important product you sell.
