With Christmas Holidays just around the corner, now is a good time to ensure your home security is in check especially if you are going away for an extended period. Like they say, prevention is better than the cure and by making sure your security system is working correctly will help to make your holiday one to remember for all the right reasons.
We are available to service your security system throughout Geelong and Melbourne by running our system diagnostics to make sure everything is working as it should. We also check that your backup battery is in good condition and also change any batteries that need replacing in wireless sensors.
A great tip which you can do yourself is to test your alarm sensors by switching your system on and walking in front of all your sensors to make sure they activate the alarm system. If your alarm system has back to base monitoring be sure to let them know that you are testing the system first as you don’t need the police showing up unnecessarily.
We can also add back to base monitoring to your existing alarm system for that extra security and with back to base monitoring you may be eligible for a substantial discount on your home & contents insurance premiums. Other benefits of having your security system back to base monitored through our Licensed Australian monitoring company is the bonus of faster response times if there is a burglary or a fire.
You may like to add cctv cameras to your existing alarm system or upgrade to a video verified system like iAlarm. When an alarm notification is made using the iAlarm system it records a short video clip that is sent to a central station to then be reviewed by the owner, allowing for visual conformation of an incident and fast dispatch of the police.
Video alarms are now more affordable than ever and are being integrated into cell phones, laptops and home computer systems. With the ability to monitor and protect our most valuable possessions more easily, it has never been a better time to upgrade to video surveillance.
If you’re going away for the holidays and would like some more security tips check out the blog post on security tips for homes businesses and remember statistics show that a home with a security system is less likely to be burgled than a home without one.
This is the one of the busiest times of year for installing security systems so if you need security for your home or business around Geelong or Melbourne, email us or give us a call on 0417 384 787 so we can make sure your are protected over the holiday season.
