DON'T LET THE GRINCH STEAL CHRISTMAS!



Use Reed Security's checklist to keep The Grinch away this holiday season.





☐ 1. SHARE INFORMATION 

  • Create a WhatsApp group and let your neighbours know if The Grinch has been in the area.
  • Join your local Neighbourhood Group on Facebook and learn about recent activities.
    eg: Stonebridge Neighbourhood Watch
  • Share video and images from your doorbell camera or security cameras.
  • Share information with the Police as it may help with an arrest.





☐ 2. DO NOT ADVERTISE YOU ARE AWAY

  • Ask all strangers for identification. The person who is “lost” and looking for directions could actually be The Grinch checking to see if someone is home.
  • DO NOT advertise on Facebook or Instagram that you are travelling. You may think you’re letting your friends and family know you’re having a great time, but people often forget to change their privacy settings. If you like to post photos - post them after you get back.




☐ 3. LOCK YOUR DOORS AND WINDOWS

  • The Grinch targets unlocked doors - including vehicle doors. Make sure all doors and windows are locked.
  • If you lose a key get the locks changed.
  • A better alternative is to eliminate keys altogether by installing an Alarm.com smart lock with built in keypad.
  • Install monitored door and window sensors.
  • When your security system is "armed" an instant alert is sent to your smartphone and our 24/7 Monitoring Stations.
  • Some properties may require security roll shutters to keep intruders out.





☐ 4. KEEP THE LIGHTS ON 

  • The Grinch targets unoccupied homes - so keep your home well lit at night.
  • Install exterior motion lights that turn on when there is movement.
  • Install timers to turn on lights, radios and televisions on at different times. This gives the appearance that someone is home. 
  • A better option is to install Alarm.com smart lights and smart plug modules - setup on alternating schedules.



☐ 5. INSTALL A SMART SECURITY SYSTEM

  • $0 Smart Security systems range from $39.99 to $89.99 a month 
  • Protection against intrusion, fire, carbon monoxide, flood, low temperature and more...
  • Elegant touch screen and hub for home automation devices
  • Control with Alarm.com smartphone and desktop apps
  • Includes 24/7 professional monitoring
  • 400% less likely to have a break-in
  • Up to 20% off homeowners insurance - consult your insurance company





☐ 6. INSTALL SMART CAMERAS

  • The Grinch avoids homes with outdoor security cameras
  • Get instant alerts when The Grinch or a visitor is at your property
  • Check on your property from Anywhere
  • All events are recorded and can be used as evidence
  • Secure your entire property in color 24/7 with our $0 ColorVu Camera Sale
