But to do so, an individual should consider some essential tips that may come in handy while working on your computer. Below are some of the tips and tricks that every individual should follow while accessing their computer and ensure their security.

Use your judgment

Some may consider our first tip to be quite obvious, but it is far better to intimate an individual before any mishap happens. Never ever pick up or move your CPU while the computer is running as it can result in electric shock due to static charge on your body. Moreover, by shaking or mishandling a computer while in use can result in hardware damage or misplacement of hardware inside the device.

Make sure the computer is turned off, and the power cord is removed from the switchboard before touching or opening your computer cabinet or any other hardware.

Do Not Touch!

If you don’t have any in-depth knowledge of computer circuit board or inside of the computer, then it is best recommended to not directly touch any circuit board r component inside the computer instead taking professional help can suit you better.

 Still, if you are well versed with the interiors of your computer cabinet then make sure that the power is switched off before you touch any components of the motherboard. The best means to ensure that no power supply is received by your computer is through switching off the power supplying unit of the computer which is designated to canalize power to all the components of the computer.

Discharging is mandatory

Even after switching off the power supply of your computer it is very much possible that some electric current is still present inside your CPU, so before getting any closer to the computer cabinet it is best recommended to touch any metal item.

By touching a metal item like a door handle, one can discharge all the static charge from their body and safeguard themselves from an uncertain electric shock. Moreover, if you have worn any woolen cloths, it’s better to remove them as wool tends to store static charge which could be devastating while working on a computer.

Avoid liquids and solids around your work station

Well, we cannot predict the future, but what we can do is take some precautions to undermine a safe working environment. One should absolutely avoid eating or drinking around their workplace as an accident may happen, and results could be irreplaceable.

If accidentally some liquid spills around your working space then immediately try to remove any hardware around it to avoid any potential damage to your device and try to use a dry cloth or tissue to soak the spilled water and make any further mess.

By referring to the above-mentioned tips and tricks, one can ensure a proper and safe working environment for themselves and always remember to focus at a single task at a time as trying to do multiple things at a time can result in some unwanted problems.

The Alexa Guard feature can be accessed through the Alexa App on both Android and iOS, which allows its user to leave their house without any fear of fire or security hazards. Alexa Guard feature utilizes the far-field microphones inside the Echo device to obtain the minute sounds like smoke alarms sound or breaking of glass while no one is present at home.

As soon as Alexa detects any unrequired sound like Smoke alarm or breaking of glass windows, a notification message is sent to the registered mobile device to let know the user of the current happenings inside their house. Users can hear to a short 10 second clip or pair remotely to their Echo devices to undermine what exactly is going on in their homes to make sure that their residence is safe. 

How to enable Alexa Guard?

The Alexa Guard feature is easy to activate, as users can simply give a voice command to their Eco device saying “Alexa I’m leaving” while going out of their house which would instantly activate the Alexa Guard feature on your Echo device.

Amazon Echo users can easily enable the Alexa Guard feature on their devices by going through the steps given below and ensure complete safety of their homes when they are not around.

  • Launch the Alexa App on your smartphone.

For instance, if a use have ADT security, then you can pair your Alexa device with the ADT system to have a better security channel for your house as Alexa can immediately communicate with ADT of any uncertain miss hap and other devices paired like security camera and smoke detector could assist the user to resolve any security related issue.

Alexa can even play some tricks straight out of Home Alone movie as Alexa Echo devices can also pair with other smart utilities in your home to fool any suspected intruders. For example, Alexa can pair to the smart lights in your house to switch it on and off or play random sounds of different people to create an illusion to any intruder that someone is already inside the house.

It is essential to know that Alexa Guard feature could be deactivated from the same account, which was used to enable this feature. So if any other Echo account user says “I’m Home” to Alexa, it would not affect the Echo device as the user will have to first switch their accounts to the one which activated this feature and then the user will be required to manually disable the feature by using the mobile app.

Hopefully, Amazon Echo users will now be able to utilize the fantastic new Guard feature on their devices to ensure better security and safety of their home when no one is present and ensure complete protection for their house.
