patio solar lamp I’m kind of worried about living on my own?
I am 18 and I have one daughter who is 9 months. I will be getting my own place sometime next month and if I have a bottom floor apartment the sliding glass door is right there with a patio, I’m worried about burglars and stuff like that. How can I get over this fear?
I don’t know how big the place is, it’s only a two bedroom and I wanted to move there so my daughter could have a room.
I don’t know if i’m getting the bottom floor apartment or not, I’m going in to ask tomorrow.
You can put a piece of wood in ledge of the sliding glass door to prevent it from being able to be slid open (this is what a lot of people do). There are also door and window alarms that you can purchase at the store (relatively cheaply) that will go off if one is opened. Make sure that you have blinds or curtains and keep them closed at night and when you’re out of the house so that people cannot look in. You can purchase removable batter-powered motion detectors or put out solar lights around the patio (and entrance) if these are private for your unit — if they’re shared, then this isn’t a feasible option. If the door doesn’t have a deadbolt, ask the landlord if one could be installed for extra security.
It can be very scary living on your own for the first time — this is common. Make sure that you’re moving into a safe neighborhood and that you’re prepared, just in case anything would happen. Most homes are not burglarized while people are home — which could help to reassure you at night. Keep a lamp on at night if it makes you feel more secure — I’ve done this many of times; in fact, it’s a habit now and it does make me feel better (I’ve been a single mom for 10 years). Good luck to you. Try not to let fear get the most of you and just try some basic safety around your home. Obviously, don’t open the door to anyone you don’t know – and make sure that you know who it is if someone knocks on your door at night. I’ve got friends who know I will not come to the door after dark if they knock, so they better call and tell me they’re on my door step. Make sure that your apartment isn’t in a high-crime area (the local police department can give you this information if you aren’t sure)… other than that, you should be fine. Congratulations on your new place.
diy solar electricity I'm doing a DIY solar panel?
I'm doing a big project for school, and I decided to do it on solar panels. I am new to the subject, but have done some research on it, I would buy a single panel, charge controller, an inverter and a battery to charge a single lamp. My question is whether the articles in the links to work together and if the panel will produce electricity?

Also, if you know any way to get cheaper items, but the same efficiency, please tell me. Thanks. I changed the investor is: http://www.tooltopia.com/atd-tools-5950.aspx
Sounds like fun. A 1 watt panel does not need a charge controller, however. In fact, it may take 1 watt of power charge controller. With a low-power panel, you can only connect directly to the battery panel. A gel cell 7 amp-hour (the rate those used in burglar alarms) would be good for this purpose. The group is too small to charge a car battery. The gel cell must be that the investor, but only for a few minutes. If you want to be more impressive, look for a low power, 12 volt device. An iPod, plus a car adapter 12 volt would be an example.
Looking for home DIY project without buying anything!?
Looking for Do-It Yourself Solar Wind project now! And can you tell me how and where to get a solar cell and where to find it and how to install! Without buying anything!
Try some of these ideas: http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=how+to+make+solar+power+windmill+recycle PS You'd probably have got much closer to your question (and answers) if you had included the topic of your question (wind, solar) in the subject line *. * Most people do not click on all matters to YA to see if it might relate to something they know … take too long, and they rely on the subject line to give them that information quickly. And you'd probably be better to ask a question on this technical advice from other too, such as engineering, Living Green, climate science other, or others … check out this finding more details: http://answers.yahoo.com/search/search_result; _ylt = AnDL4E0eTKJearRLtNJPpmme5HNG; _ylv = 3 p = solar + electric + windmill and undefined undefined = Good luck!?
