Security Tip | Home Security

YardsignThe depressing fact is, it’s not that hard to get into most homes.

Every 15 seconds, a burglar breaks into a home in the United States, steals an average $1,725 worth of property and robs the people who live there of peace of mind for years.

Installing an alarm system is easy and provides peace of mind. If something does happen, help will be on the way. Prominently displaying a yard sign with the alarm company’s name on it outside the house provides additional benefits. When people keep it hidden so as not to disturb landscape aesthetics, would-be thieves don’t know the home is any less desirable than the house next door, and the alarm is only an after-the-fact security measure.

 

The lesson, alarms are most effective when they’re most obvious.

ID Capture Camera for Surveillance Systems

ID cam picIf you have a business that is susceptible to liability due to a customers age or use of a fraudulent ID, we have a new product that may help.

For bars, restaurants that serve alcohol, and stores that sell tobacco products, checking identification is commonplace. Sometimes its tough to determine if the identification is really the person in front of you.

There may also be an event where evidence is needed that an employee actually checked the identification of a person. With an ID capture camera you can record an image of the ID used by the person during the check or transaction.

This evidence can be enhanced by installing an additional camera in the area of the exchange between your employee and the person presenting the identification.

We offer several models of the ID Capture Camera and a full line of Surveillance Systems for home or business solutions.

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 info@midwestsecurityandfire.com  . You may find more information about Midwest Security & Fire and our products we install at www.midwestsecurityandfire.com
