Daylight Saving Time Tips

This Sunday, November 7, marks the end of Daylight Saving Time. That means as our clocks fall back at 2 am, we get an extra hour of sleep!


Since you’ll already be going through your house turning the clocks back an hour, here are a few other things we suggest you do as Daylight Saving Time ends:

  1. Check the batteries in your smoke detector(s). While they should technically be tested once a month, this is a good time to hit the button as you walk through the room.
  2. Check your carbon monoxide detector. Remember, the average lifespan of a carbon monoxide detector is two years.
  3. Have flashlights stashed throughout the house? Check the batteries in those as well—they won’t do much good in an emergency with dead batteries!
  4. Live in an area with harsh winters? The end of Daylight Saving Time is the perfect opportunity to winterize your car. Stash a warm blanket, flashlight and snow scraper in your trunk.
  5. Check for ZOMM updates. Make sure your ZOMM is up-to-date with the latest firmware so you’re reaping the maximum benefits from it. (Hint: there’s one available now!)

On top of all of this, make sure you turn your clocks back before you head to bed Saturday evening. Then, enjoy that extra hour of sleep!
