A Saskatchewan-based clothing company is taking off in Western Canada. With its logos making their way across the country, Prairie Proud is living up to its name.

Cole Thorpe launched the clothing line in 2014 with a goal of giving back to the community. He's built a successful brand with prairie values - Passion, Community and Quality. To date he's given back more than $19,000 to the community via charity partners. Here's his story... 

Prairie Proud partnered with Reed Security and installed a Business Bundle to stay in control, reduce losses and grow their bottom line. 
After the installation we asked Cole for his feedback and these were his comments:

1. How did you find out about Reed Security?

As a resident of Saskatoon for the last 8 years, I have become aware of Reed Security and its offering. Most notably, Reed Security proudly provides the security system for IDEAS Inc. in which my business (Prairie Proud) operates. 

2. What solution did you install? Why?

As a growing local retailer, we wanted to legitimize our security in an effort of loss prevention. I decided to install a REED HD Bundled Solution which includes 3 cameras in addition to moving our motion detectors into locations of high traffic which are clearly visible. This bundle solution coupled with mobile access has provided peace of mind as an entrepreneur.

3. Is the solution meeting your expectations?

Yes, I have been very happy with this solution.

4. What features do you like about the solution?

Personally, the mobile access is a game changer for someone like me; many aspects of my business are run from my phone and the fact that I can now monitor security from the palm of my hand is a reflection of business in the 21st century.

5. Would you recommend Reed Security to others? Why? 

Yes, I would definitely recommend Reed Security to others; the service provided was excellent and supporting other local businesses is part of our philosophy.

 Business Bundles include:  

  • ReedHD™ Hi-Def Cameras (twice the quality of 1080p)
  • 10 to 14 Days Recording of all events
  • SmartPhone and PC apps for remote viewing 
  • 100% Parts and Labour warranty
  • 100% Onsite Service warranty

Two years ago, Oyvind Sparboe and Myron Jacobsen brought Reed Security to Prince Albert.
“We were long term employees at another security company and we saw first hand there was a lot of room for improvement.,” said Sparboe. “We looked at several partnership options and after careful screening, Reed Security and their $5 a month promo was clearly the best choice.”
You can feel at ease knowing your home, cabin or business is secure when you choose Reed Security as your security provider.  Solutions include Alarm Systems with 24-7 Monitoring, ReedHD™ Hi-Def Cameras you can view from your smartphone and Access Control swipe-card systems which control who goes where and when.
The one thing separating Reed Security from the rest is the commitment to providing Excellent Customer Service. Reed Security cares about building long-term relationships with their clients, going above and beyond before and after the sale. Some companies may take weeks to provide service, while Reed Security’s goal is by the next business day.
Jacobsen and Sparboe know one of the biggest benefits to having a monitored home security system, is it provides constant monitoring when you are unable to do so yourself. If you need to leave town for business or a vacation, they recommend putting your trust in Reed Security. Reed Security offers full monitoring and is a ULC listed company, which indicates a high standard of monitoring and installation. You can feel assured there will be a response to an emergency situation. Additionally, when you are away from your home or business you can use remote monitoring services. For example, ALARM.COM interactive services use 3G cell towers to connect your security system directly to your smartphone, tablet, or PC. No phone line is required.

“Today, your security system can provide you with a variety of notifications,” said Jacobsen.  “There are a lot of latch-key kids out there so now when the kids come home from school at four o’clock, or whenever, you can get a notification on your phone that lets you know the kids are home.”
Jacobsen and Sparboe want to inform potential customers that an alarm system can also provide additional protection to a variety of other factors including fire and carbon dioxide detection while preventing intruders and protecting valuables.
“A security system is not just used for security anymore,” said Jacobsen. “A lot of people think, ‘Oh, I will never get broken into.’ Well, you could still have a flood in your home, you could have a fire in your home or your furnace could quit.
“Today you can add to your security system a variety of sensors such as environmental sensors, low temp sensors, water sensors, smoke sensors and carbon dioxide sensors.”

  • 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.

    • Write down the model and serial number of all electronics.

    • 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.
