We provide a consultative approach when meeting with a homeowner to identify what matters most to you. Several factors should be addressed when installing a system:

  • Perimeter protection (doors, windows, motion detection, glass break detection)
  • Life Safety (smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, medical alerts)
  • Environmental protection (sump pump, water level, furnace failure, generator running)
  • Lifestyle (remote services, phone applications, integration to lights, locks and thermostats)
  • Any specific areas of your home or business that you need to protect such as a safe, liquor, or gun cabinet

If you are not home when the alarm is triggered, you need to be made aware and authorities need to be called if you can not get there. Our security monitoring team works 24/7 to ensure any alerts from your home or business security system are responded to immediately.
