Alarm systems are no longer the basic burglar alarms they
used to be. They no longer cost thousands of dollars and they no longer take
days to install. In our latest Regina
Security Blog post we highlight the latest security & automation technology
available to home and business owners.
3G/4G Cellular Connections &
In the past, most Regina security
systems required a landline to send alarm signals to a 24/7 Central Monitoring Station. An
emergency operator identifies the signals and dispatches the local authorities
(Police, Fire Department) as well as your call list.
Modern security systems can still use a landline, but 85% of Reed Security’s new subscribers
use ALARM.COM 3G/4G cellular connections.
Since a landline is no longer required you could cancel this service and save $25 to $35 a month with your local
With ALARM.COM you can get instant email
notifications when your security system is armed or disarmed. The is an
especially popular feature for parents that want to be notified when a child
arrives home from school. “The Smith
Family Security System was disarmed by Jamie at 3:52 p.m.”. If you’re a
business owner or manager you can receive instant notifications when employees
arrive to work or after hours when nobody should be at your building.
ALARM.COM smartphone apps are *free
when you subscribe to an ALARM.COM interactive plan.
Smart Home Automation
Have you ever heard of the Internet of Things (IoT)? IoT refers
to connecting any item with an on and off switch to the Internet and
controlling them with apps. Today’s modern security system is also a smart home automation system that can
control your smart door locks, overhead doors, smart thermostat, HD Wi-Fi Door Bell
Camera, Light Switches, HD Wireless Cameras and more.
With ALARM.COM you can stay connected to
your home or business with one single app rather than having different apps for
each IoT device.
Wireless Sensors and Devices
With the evolution wireless security sensors and devices we no longer need
to run wires throughout your home/office and risk damaging walls, floors, window
casings and baseboards. Wireless security sensors and devices communicate with an
encrypted frequency, have a range between 250 feet and 1.6km and have long lasting non-proprietary batteries that can last
up to 7 years. This has also reduced
professional installation times drastically – minimizing any interruptions of
having a contractor working at your home or business.
DIY (Do It Yourself) Systems
A new category for home security is DIY. Who doesn’t want to try to save few bucks right? If you’re a
handyman and have an intermediate understanding of low voltage electronics,
then this is a great option for you. Approximately 10% of Regina home owners and business owners are performing self
installations of their security systems. These systems are NOT monitored by a 24/7 Central Monitoring Station and
the Police and Fire Department will not
accept any automated phone calls from your security system. This means you’re on your own when you need
help the most.
For the rest of you, choosing a Professional
Installation company to provide a Smart Home & Automation
system is a better option. Reed Security $0 Down Plans are the most popular
and all inclusive . All you have to do
is take care of the affordable monthly fees. Plus, since your Security &
Automation system is monitored by our 24/7 Central Monitoring Station you will
be eligible for an insurance discount. Discounts on your home owners insurance
range from 10% to 25%.
