CONSUMER WARNING: HOW TO DEAL WITH HIGH PRESSURE DOOR TO DOOR SALESPEOPLE (THAT WON'T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER)

Consumer Warning

 

It's that time of year when you will be getting pressured by door to door salespeople. They would like to sign you up to "limited time offer" that expires "right away". And before you know you know it you're on the hook for thousands of dollars. (This happens several thousand times each year).

The Pressure:

 

  • Sales person won't leave even when you tell them to "Leave"
  • Sales person won't leave when you tell them "No Thanks"
  • Sales person won't leave when you say "I Already Have Your Products or Service"
  • Sales person name drops the name of your neighbor and makes it sound like "they signed up" or "they bought one" or "they referred me to you"
  • Sales person comes to the house more than once

 

The Solutions:

 

  1. Put Up Your Hand and "Say NO". Immediately close the door and the sales person will eventually leave.
  2. Tell them "You are Trespassing" and that you will call the BBB Better Business Bureau, Consumer Protection Branch and the Police if they do not leave.

    BBB   1-888-352-7601
    Consumer Protection   1-877-880-5550 
    Saskatoon Police   (306) 975-8300 

    RCMP (Saskatoon)   (306) 975-5173 or call your Local Detachment
     
  3. Always Get 3 Quotes for whatever you consider purchasing. This gives you the time to gather information and to check if the "deal" being presented to you is the best option.
  4. Never Accept Quick Delivery of a product or service. This gives you a cooling off period and more time to gather facts.
  5. If you did proceed with the offer You Have 10 Days to Change Your Mind and CANCEL (and get a full refund). It's the Law in Saskatchewan.
  6. Don't Forget - You may already be in a contract for the products or services being offered to you.

PRAIRIE SPIRIT SCHOOL DIVISION GETS REEDHD HI-DEF CAMERAS

When Stobart Community School (Duck Lake, SK) underwent a multi-million dollar renovation the Prairie Spirit School Division partnered with Reed Security.

The Problem:

  • Common issues at schools are break-in's, vandalism, and bullying.

The Solution:

The school already had an Intrusion Alarm System with 24/7 Monitoring (Notify Authorities, Key-holders) and an Access Control Swipe Card System (Control Who Goes Where and When).

We met with the client and customized a ReedHD hi-def Video Surveillance system with the following features and benefits:

  • Interior ReedHD hi-def cameras protect all Entrances, Hallways, Gymnasium, Computer Lab, Industrial Arts Room, and Common Areas
  • Exterior ReedHD hi-def cameras protect the Parking Lots, Playground, and Common Areas
  • Cameras have Wide Dynamic Range capabilities (optimized image quality in bright and shadow conditions)
  • 24/7 ReedHD hi-def recording of all cameras for 30 to 60 days
  • Video Management Software with Multi-user access from Workstations, iPhone, iPad, and Android devices
  • "Protected by Reed Security" Warning Signage
  • Professional Installation - On Time and On Budget

WE JUST GOT BACK FROM THE COOLEST SECURITY EXPO ON EARTH - ISCWEST 2013

When you spend your hard earned dollars with Reed Security - you can be assured you are getting the latest and greatest security technology and trends.

Each year we travel to numerous security conferences and look for solutions to everyday problems relating to Theft and Productivity.

We see lots of cool stuff, get our badges scanned at the booths, and forever more get bombarded with emails and phone calls from manufacturers and exhibitors. Can you imagine vendors actually try to win us over by hosting exclusive dinners and beverages? :)

We've built some very strong relationships over the past 13 years - which has allowed us to negotiate awesome pricing to compliment our award winning service. Our success also means we have access exclusive products - that are not available to other security companies.

TESTIMONIAL FROM THE LUXE BUILDING

 

 When the condo owners at The LUXE Building wanted to See who's at the front door and get better security they partnered with Reed Security.

The Problem:

  • Many multi-unit buildings can no longer (affordably) display the front door camera on their TV's.
  • Occupants could previously view the front door camera on a TV channel when Shaw Cable was the only cable TV option.
  • The old TV solution is no longer a viable option because many multi unit tennants have a combination of Shaw Cable, MAX, Satelite TV, Internet TV, or no TV at all.
  • Retrofitting a 24 suite finished building of this size with the old TV solution would cost more than $15,000.

The Solution:

We met the client and customized a
ReedHD hi-def Video Surveillance system with the following features and benefits:

  • Protecting the entire building with ReedHD hi-def cameras was nearly the same cost as retrofitting the building with an expired solution.
  • Condo owners can access ReedHD cameras with their PC, iPhone, iPad, or Android devices - unlimited Users
  • Condo owners also talk to the visitor at the front door with an audio intercom before letting them into the building. This was previously installed.
  • Interior ReedHD cameras protect all Entrances including the Parking Garage
  • Exterior ReedHD cameras protect the Building and the Parking Lot.
  • Some cameras have Wide Dynamic Range capabilities (optimized image quality in bright and shadow conditions)
  • Some cameras have I.R. Illumination Nightvision (see in the dark)
  • 24/7 digital recording of all cameras for 14 to 30 days
  • Professional Installation - On Time and On Budget
  • up to 3 Years Manufacturers Limited Warranty to protect their investment
  • Reed Security Award Winning Service

The Testimonial:

"We are VERY pleased. Certainly everyone from Reed Security that I have dealt with has been fantastic!"
