Never heard that one before. I have a St.Benedict Crusifix around my neck along with a small Miraculosa medal and a Rosary, not is plain sight, that could offend someone. It is just more convenient because they get tangled in your pocket and also because I use it every day, and a big Crusifix that everyone can see, and I feel pretty safe. What you could do is to ask your priest to bless your house. I have it blessed once every year.
That is perfect & really wonderful having your house blessed. You can even put a blessed St. Benedict medal in water and it will impart a blessing into the water.
Many of us have Holy Water at our home and use it to bless ourselves. As long as one has more than half container of Holy Water one can refill the container because there is the Holy Water imparts a blessing to the unblessed water. A priest told me about this.
You can make an appointment with your priest and bring a box of salt. If you ask the priest he will bless the salt. Then you can lay a tiny line of salt next to & across your threshold.
Using sacramentals in good faith in our homes curbs the influence of Satan over our households.
The Lord provides for HIs people.
