"I CAN BE ANYWHERE AND HELP MY STAFF" -JASON YOCHIM, CEO, SRA


When the 
Saskatchewan Realtors Association (SRA) modernized their service centres in Regina and Saskatoon they partnered with Reed Security for their protection.

Our connected security systems for this project include:

Q.  In Saskatoon, how big is the new SRA location in and why did you move?

A.  We moved from a 3,700 square foot location on 8th St. E. to our 13,300 square foot location on McKercher Drive. We have 1,600 members in Saskatchewan and now we have adequate meeting space and parking. Our new Saskatoon building includes the Harry Janzen Auditorium (110-175 people), Training Room (20+ people) and a small meeting room (10 people) for internal use and available for rent for non-members.

Q.  Do the Regina security systems and Saskatoon security systems we installed meet your expectations?

A.  Yes! It’s easy to use and I can control both the door locks and security systems for both locations from one app. I can be anywhere and help my staff…it saves me time. Plus, no more keys to keep track of or locks to change.

DOES MY ALARM SYSTEM NEED A PHONE LINE? MAYBE!


One of the biggest trends in the security industry is that homeowners are cancelling their home phone lines in record numbers. Due to the popularity of smartphones and affordability of high speed internet, 50% of homes no longer have a land line.  

Most traditional alarm systems DO require a phone line to transmit signals to a 24/7 Monitoring Station – no matter who your security provider is.

Newer security systems that have been installed within the last 5-7 years often have built in cellular modems. However, cellular providers have been phasing out older 2G and 3G connections and you still may not be properly protected.     

If you’re uncertain about your coverage or have recently cancelled your home phone line, your should contact your security provider immediately to confirm your coverage. Reed Security has a $0 DOWN 4G LTE PROMO in place for clients wishing to cancel their home or business land line.



What Are My Options If I Do Not Have Phone Line?

1. Local System

The alarm system is no longer monitored. Your emergency contacts, the Police and the Fire Department are no longer dispatched. You no longer qualify for a home insurance discount (max. 25% per year).  

2. I.P. Signalling

An I.P. communicator is added to your alarm system and signals are transmitted to a 24/7 Monitoring Station via high speed internet connection.

3. Cellular Signalling

A cellular communicator is added to your alarm system and signals are transmitted to a 24/7 Monitoring Station via SaskTel, Telus, Bell and Rogers cellular towers.

This is by far the most popular option due to the speed, reliability, increased security and affordability.
 


In fact, 90 percent of Reed Security’s new subscribers have Alarm.com 4G LTE communication. This dedicated connection works if the phone line is cut, power is out or internet is down.

Once you’re on the Alarm.com platform you have access to one single app that can:

  • Arm/disarm your security system remotely
  • Receive instant arming/disarming alerts
  • Manage users and control what they can do
  • Control smart thermostats, lights, door locks and garage doors
  • View ReedHD™ indoor, outdoor and doorbell cameras

If you have any questions about No Phone Line home or business security or would like pricing to Upgrade to Alarm.com please Contact Us today.
