Brainerd Jaycees Park Surveillance Installation

Brainerd Jaycees Park

Midwest Security & Fire recently worked with Brainerd Parks & Recreation to install surveillance cameras at Jaycees Park in Brainerd.

The park had experienced vandalism in recent months to the buildings, skate park, and parking lot. The costs of cleanup and fears of future damages had city officials considering several alternatives including closure. 


Midwest Security & Fire met with Brainerd Parks & Recreation Staff to discuss current security and surveillance options, demonstrated products, and provided a detailed estimate for materials and labor installation.


Since Midwest Security & Fire proudly supports the community and organizations working with children, youth, and families, we  provided a generous discount on materials and labor for the project. Installation has been completed and it has been reported that no damage or vandalism has occurred since the system was installed.

Security at your Business


Commercial security and surveillance systems


Security Tip of the Week


Report strangers in your office or workplace. Visitors and staff should wear badges. Others you don’t recognize may be thieves who have walked past reception or found an open back door. Politely ask strangers if they need some assistance or report them to Security, Staff or Police.
Thieves are as likely to steal your purse or wallet as they are to take company property, so it is in everyone’s interest to keep our premises safe.

Security Systems for the Self Storage Industry from Midwest Security & Fire

DigiGuard Wireless Door Sensor Replacement Battery

Midwest Security & Fire installs and services security and access systems for the Self Storage industry throughout Minnesota. One of the system manufacturers we have worked with is Digitech. Digitech has and continues to go through many changes in the products and organization if the business. 

 Several years back Digitech came out with a new product featuring wireless door alarms for the units doors in a self storage facility. This system was designed to install or retrofit an existing facility to have individual door alarms for each storage unit and sound an alarm should a unit be broken into when occupied by a tenant. The company that manufactured the wireless transmitters and accessories for that product went out of business and therefore Digitech was no longer able to support the product. This was a pretty bad deal for the facility owners who purchased the products for their facilities some of which had 500 or more door alarms.

 Midwest Security & Fire provides service and maintenance for one of these facilities using the Digitech DigiGuard wireless door transmitters sensors and in an effort to provide support for the facility has been able to source spare parts and accessories until recently. The company that was providing the replacement battery assembly pack no longer makes that part. After many exhaustive hours of searching and research Midwest was able to locate the parts necessary to build a replacement battery assembly pack for the existing transmitters. This has allowed us to continue supporting the existing door alarm system for many more years and save the facility owner a costly total system replacement.

If you are looking for the Digitech DigiGuard replacement battery assembly pack contact us at 218-825-8844 or for more information. We will provide a quotation for your quantity desired.

Low Temperature and Freeze Up alarms for Residential Home Security Systems

Adjustable Low Temperature Sensor

I just went out to get todays mail and was reminded that winter and cold temperatures are here again. It has been a mild winter so far with little snow and less than average temperatures but that won’t last long. Extreme cold temperature and snow will be here soon enough.

Since many of our customers are second home owners, seasonal residents, or homeowners who may be on vacation during cold periods, we offer low temperature or freeze sensors in their homes. The sensors detect a temperature condition and the alarm system communicates that information with our monitoring center. Our operators notify the homeowner or responsible parties to the condition. POur systems aslo have the ability to adjust temperatures as an option.

Every year we have several of these sensors that activate and we find that the heating system is not working to heat the home. While there are many reasons for this occuring, notification and response to the event is critcal to preventing damages in the home. I have seen homes destroyed by furnace failure and the resulting damages caused by frozen pipes and water damage.

To have this feature installed or added to your existing system, just give us a call at 218-825-8844 or send us an email at  . You may find more information about Midwest Security & Fire and our products we install at
