Security by Cable company sandwich by plumber

Yesterday a man called in and said his insurance company won’t renew his policy unless he adds temperature sensors to his alarm system in Park City. This is the second time I have heard about this. He has a cable company that provides his security system and they don’t provide temp sensors.

The insurance company wants him to remove the system he got from his cable company and install one that is monitored by a local UL listed Monitoring Station. (Peak Alarm happens be be a local UL listed Monitoring Station)

Having your cable company provide your security system and monitoring is kinda like getting a sandwich from your plumber. Hey they may be getting better at it although Peak Alarm concentrates on Alarm Systems, Guard/Patrol, AV and we do it well.

Peak can provide: Temp sensors, water sensors, CO, Smoke, gas, motion, status contacts, gun movement sensors or sensors to tell you if the stove has been left on.

The Cable TV company told him that they could not add temperature sensors to their security system. They only do certain things and they are limited. Hey they are good a cable TV and so when they do other things they are limited. They can bundle and give great pricing although you need to ask what exactly are you getting?

You can call me about security systems and alarm systems because I have been involved in the industry for over 20 years but I cannot help you with information relating to other areas of your life. Our systems are becoming more integrated with home entertainment all the time and we can integrate them into those systems, our AV department can install large theater systems in your home and we can integrate the security into those systems.

1. Water leak in your home destroys carpet in basement and sheetrock – Prevention or mitigation step = Add water sensors to your security system

2. Home drops below 40 degrees at grandmas house when she is asleep – Add a low/high sensor to alert you when it is too hot or too cold.

3. Kids keep changing the thermostat and your bill is too high. – Add thermostat control to your security system you control on your phone.

4. You worry about your dogs or kids when you are not home. – Add cameras in family areas or outside to check in on things with your phone.

5. You kids loose house keys or you need to let others in but you don’t want to give out more keys.

Answer to #5 – Install electronic locks that you control with your phone from anywhere. You kids can get in using a code and the codes can be updated and changed very easily.

6. Who is coming to your door when you are not home? Tell your kids not to answer the door. – WIth SKYBELL you answer your door with your phone

7. Did I close the garage door or not? – Add a garage door sensor and an automatic closer you can control with your phone

8. Similar to 2 your home freezes when you are not there and the pipes freeze which will turn into a flood when they break and thaw

Answer to #8 Add a temperature sensor so you will be alerted to get someone over to get the heater back on before anything freezes

9. What if there is a fire when we are on vacation or what if there is a fire and we are overcome by CO or smoke and don’t wake up? This is a legitimate worry because many people don’t wake up if the smoke or CO is overwhelming. When dispatched the Fire Department will get in and save your family within minutes. The small monthly monitoring cost is worth every penny.

Answer to #9 -Install smoke detectors and CO sensors that are tied to the monitored security system so help will be dispatched

10. What if you need to let the UPS guy into the garage? Talk to him with SKYBELL, disarm your system, open the garage door, he put the package in and you view him, shut the garage door and rearm the system all the time while you are on vacation using your cell phone.

11. Burglars see your lights turn on and off at certain times. —–
Have your lights turn on and off at random times with the Z-wave options on your security system

Have a z-wave plug in module turn radio on and off at certain times or any other electronic device. Call Larry Love for pricing and options.

WORRY LESS AND LIVE MORE. With any of the above options you won’t have to worry about those things. I have AAA so I don’t worry about running out of gas, locking my keys in the car or having a dead battery because it is covered and someone will come and help. With any of the above options installed on your security system you will have less to worry about and more time to live your life. Stephen King wrote in one of his books “Perfect Paranoia is perfect awareness.” With proper prevention steps you won’t worry about something that you should not be worrying about.

We also have WATER COP which can SHUT THE WATER PIPES OFF. (This will also require that we work in conjunction with a plumber)
