LIGHTS ON GETS YOU LIGHTS OUT!

In a zombie world the power grid will inevitably fail, making night an extremely dark environment. Candles, flashlights, lamps and other interior light sources will suddenly be the equivalent of a “come attact me” sign to any zombie or hostile human searching for places to raid.

James Wesley Rawless of SurvivalBlog.com echoes this point:

“Your house should look anonymously dark, like those of your neighbors who have already run for the hills, or are without power.”

To avoid unwelcome guests cover all windows with heavy black plastic sheeting. Trash bags, blankets and other improvised black-out precautions tend to leak light, so if you don’t have the proper material you should consider illuminating interior windowless rooms only, and even that at a minimum.

Rawless also recommends installing infrared, motion sensitive floodlights to the outside of your house. Invisible to the naked eye, these lights will provide an early warning system when used with night vision goggles and a solar power source.

For a less extreme alternative, consider setting up dummy lights in abandoned houses up the street or on another block to attract any roaming attention away from you location. With good sight lines, you’ll be able to monitor neighborhood activity from the safety of your blackened shelter.

    This is simply brilliant my friend.

  2. outside of the recently deceased I thought zombies were basically blind?

    brought on by the lack of blinking and build up of dust and scratching caused by this rended the zombie eye useless.

    Although I agree that a property should appear abandon less the human maruders find you and kill you.

  3. I’m gonna practice different ways to black out all my windows and doors now and see what works best before I really gotta do it on the fly.
    Also thinking about picking up some BIOLOGICAL/ RADIATION/ CHEMICAL hazard signs and police tape to wrap my house in!
    …Oh! And maybe a Hollywood-grade zombie dummy or two to lay out on my lawn as decoys…
    That’ll at least buy me a little breathing room from scavengers who’re afraid of infection. Assuming they can read that is…
