In Honor of Fire Prevention Week
To honor our first-responders during Fire Prevention week, we will be taking a look at technology designed to keep our families safe.
As a new generation of connected fire and smoke detectors hits the market, it's important to know that not every detector billed as "smart" delivers the maximum safety for your home and family.
A detector that is part of a fully integrated Smart Home is always safer, smarter and more efficient than a standalone fire/smoke detector, particularly when it comes to taking action in an emergency.
How to Choose the Right Security System
One of the smartest things about an IHAAVS Protect-powered home is the proactive safeguards it provides for your family. Your system's advanced technology detects potential danger and takes action on your behalf.
Do you really need Security System Monitoring?
As we discussed in our last post, the clear majority of us in North Texas live in safe environments though most of us would agree that the world in which we live is not nearly as safe and secure as it once was.
When investing in a professional installed security system, there is the cost of the security system itself, and in almost all cases, monthly alarm monitoring. A professionally monitored system can immediately alert first responders to an emergency in your home as well as sending you messages regarding the status of your home. Security System Monitoring for your home provides an even more complete security package, as someone will be safeguarding your home just as intently as you are.
Security by the Numbers
While the clear majority of us in North Texas live in safe environments, I trust most of us would agree that the world in which we live is not nearly as safe and secure as it once was.
According to Alarm System Report, over 2 million home burglaries are reported in the United States each year and, on average, a burglary of a home in the U.S. occurs every 13 seconds-or about four burglaries a minute, 240 an hour, and nearly 6,000 a day.
