IDENTILOCK's biometric trigger lock allows you to keep your gun hidden in your nightstand while denying access to any outside unauthorized users.Once you’re aware that an intruder is in your house, it's time to take action. Whether it be the crash of a window, pounding on the door, or even subtle creaking of the stairs, you must have your plan of action top of mind: How are you going to get to your weapon? Where is your phone?
Before letting your plan drive you to safety, alert the police of your situation. Keep your phone in your bedroom when you sleep, and it's not a bad idea to keep your car keys in the same place. Assuming you've simultaneously called the police and acquired your weapon, let's move on to the tricky parts. You will be under stress, but remember to stay calm and stick to your plan.
Sometimes people think racking their shotgun will be enough to scare away any danger. But really that's like saying "HEY, burglar, here I am and I have a weapon!" The less the intruder knows the better. You don't know if this person is even going to confront you. If they don't know where you are, then you have the upper hand. Use your fight or flight senses to stay focused and quiet. If you don't live alone, secure your family as quietly as possible. Be aware of the entry point of every room in your house. Think about exactly how each roomcan function as a barricade. This way you can make sure that you and your family are furthest from the intruder’s line of sight. Don't make it easy for the intruder by hiding in plain sight or making unnecessary noise.
