  • In 2014, Saskatchewan had 8506 break-in's (164/week)

  • Most Business break-in's occur when you are at home (evening and weekends)
  • Cabin's and Lake properties are especially attractive
  • 98% of break-in's occur though main floor doors and windows (often unlocked)
  • Thieves target the Master Bedroom
  • Thieves steal:
    • Cash and Credit Cards
    • Jewelry

How to Prevent Theft

  • Use Common Sense
    • If you lose a key, get the locks changed.
    • Ask all strangers for identification.
    • Never hide an extra key outdoor - especially underneath a mat or on top of a light fixture. This is the first place the bad guys look. Leave an extra house key with a friend or a neighbor.
    • DO NOT advertise on Facebook or other social media that you are on vacation. If you want to post photos, then do it when you get home.
    • For insurance purposes take photos of the contents of your home.
    • Keep all receipts in a safe and easy to find location.
    • Write down the model and serial number of all electronics.
  • Make it Difficult
    • Door chains are easy to bypass. Install deadbolts.
    • Install a stopper or stick on all sliding doors and windows.
    • Install window bars on all basement windows.
    • Make sure all doors and windows are properly locked.
    • Keep your premises well lit at night.
    • Install timers that turn lights on at different times. This gives the appearance that someone is home.
  • Install a monitored Home Security system
    • 400% less likely to have a break-in.
    • up to 25% insurance discount.
    • optional ALARM.COM with automatic lights.
  • In case you do have a break-in:
    • If it looks like a door or window was forced open, DO NOT go inside. The Burglar may still be on site.
    • Call the Police from your cellular phone or from a neighbor's house and wait.

WILL MY ALARM STILL WORK IF I DON'T HAVE A HOME PHONE LINE?

Many existing alarm systems rely on traditional phone lines to send alarm signals to our 24/7 Monitoring Stations. We see a trend that 1 in 4 home-owners no longer have phone lines and instead only use their cell phones.

With today's affordable cell phone service, a home phone line is no longer a necessity and an easy way to save some cash. In fact, you can SAVE $20 to $30 every month depending on your home phone provider.

STOP! DON'T CANCEL YOUR HOME PHONE SERVICE YET

If you DO NOT have home phone service:

  • your alarm system is unable to send signals
  • your alarm system is no longer monitored
  • you must notify your insurance company
  • you no longer receive 10% to 25% insurance discounts
A BETTER OPTION
  • ALARM.COM by Reed Security uses cell phone towers to send wireless emergency signals to our 24/7 Monitoring Stations
  • Works just about anywhere there's cell coverage including farms and cabins.
  • Works on SaskTel, Rogers, Telus and Bell networks.
  • An ALARM.COM 3G radio can be added to most modern alarm systems. We have some great deals if you need to upgrade.
  • ALARM.COM Packages start at $17.95/mo. and includes the 3G radio and service (this is an additional price to your base monitoring fees)
  • This is half price compared to what you would pay for home phone service
  • You still receive your 10% to 25% insurance discounts

GREAT NEWS! WE'RE GROWING OUR PRINCE ALBERT LOCATION


Nearly two years after opening a Reed Security Authorized Dealership in Prince Albert, SK - owners Oyvind Sparboe (left) and Myron Jacobsen (right) have the confidence to expand. The new location features a ReedHD Camera Experience Center that let's prospective clients "try before you buy". Please stop in and see how we capture Faces & License Plates.

Before opening Thor Security Ltd. both Security Specialists worked for a local competitor and each had 7 years experience with service management, installations and troubleshooting, but they needed some help with all the other stuff.

Reed Security Authorized Dealers are mentored and receive on-going coaching with starting a business, planning, financing, operations, value-selling, marketing, and delivering excellent customer service.

It's been a very successful two years and they've started long term relationships with hundreds of Home and Business clients in Prince Albert and northern Saskatchewan. You may recognize some of them:
