March Newsletter

Welcome back to this month’s edition of The Connection Newsletter!

This weekend is the start of Daylight Savings Time, so when you set your clocks forward, make sure you also check the batteries on your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. You should also check the manufacture date – if they’re older than 5-7 years old, it may be time to replace them. If you have any questions, as always, feel free to call us!

We’ve got some great topics this month in our newsletter – for business owner’s, we talk about how surveillance systems can help improve workplace safety. And for homeowners – did you know that a security system not only protects your home, but can protect your neighborhood as well? Check out the Residential section to learn more!

We would also like to invite you to visit, our web page for more basic residential alarm systems. If you are willing to do some of the work yourself, our MY DIY Plus package is for you. After 29 years in business, referrals are an important part of our growth. We appreciate any referrals you can send our way.

Why Video Surveillance Is a Must in the Workplace


Do you put a priority on workplace safety? If not, now is the time to do so. Along with housing employees day in and day out, your business is also a location where you store expensive equipment and important documents. It is also a location that customers visit.

Installing a video surveillance system in your business offers a needed layer of protection. Keep reading to learn why having this surveillance system in place is so important.

Reduce or Prevent Theft

When you install a video surveillance system on your property, it will help deter employees and customers from stealing. The reduction of crime for a business will help you save money and offer peace of mind.

Real-Time Video Footage

Having real-time video surveillance helps to ensure that business owners always have a record of what is going on inside and outside of their business. If an employee complaint, emergency, or crime occurs, the video surveillance system can capture the event, all in real-time. Managers who have security permissions also have the ability to review older footage and choose timestamps to find out what happened during an incident.

Insurance Price Breaks

Some insurance companies offer a discount to businesses that install video surveillance and security systems. This is a feature that can save your business money on the required insurance coverage.

As you can see from the information here, there are more than a few reasons to install a video surveillance system at your business. In the long run, it can help you save time and money, making it more than worth the investment.

Residential Security

How Your Security System May Benefit Your Entire Neighborhood


There are countless benefits that go along with investing in a home security system. When the system is installed properly, you can protect your valuable items, keep tabs on your kids and pets, and deter crime. Even better, you may be able to save on your homeowner’s insurance.

However, what you may not realize is that a home security system can help prevent crime for your whole neighborhood.

Keep reading to learn how a security system will help protect your community.

Improve the Efforts of Your Neighborhood Watch Program

If your neighborhood has a neighborhood watch program, then you know how important it is for neighbors to look out for each other. However, what if you had a member of your watch that never goes to sleep, leaves town, or has to run errands? This is exactly what your security system offers.

Your door and window alarms, motion sensors, home automation features, and security cameras will help keep you informed if something is amiss in or around your home – this adds a lot of value to the neighborhood watch program.

Monitor Your Surroundings

While this is dependent on the quality of the outdoor camera you install, you may be able to capture high-quality footage of incidents and activities going on at your property and beyond. For example, if your neighbor’s dog escapes, your cameras can help them see what direction it was going.

Help Solve Local Crimes

If a crime happens in the local area, such as porch pirates, or even a break in, your cameras may capture the incident. This footage can be used to capture the criminal.

As you can see from the information here, there are more than a few ways that your security camera may help your entire neighborhood. Be sure to keep this in mind when considering whether you should install one.

Hacking Risks: Is Your Home Security System Safe?

In the past, alarm systems were just a tripwire tied to a bell and other primitive setups. However, thanks to innovative technology, you now have access to much more effective security devices to help keep you safe. However, with this technology, a new risk has emerged – hackers.

Hackers are smart. They find new and effective ways to bypass your security system and get into your personal information.


Hacking Defined

Hacking means that someone has gained unauthorized access to a computerized or electronic system. It really is that simple.

With home security systems, hacking virtually always means gaining access to the app that manages the cameras or alarm or going around the security system, so it does not go off. From Wi-Fi cameras and doorbell cameras to your entire alarm panel, there are more than a few ways for hackers to gain access to your system.

Is Your System at Risk?

One of the top signs that your security system is at risk of being hacked is if you do not use the services of a quality and reputable company for monitoring services. However, if you use a quality service provider, you have another entity protecting your personal information and your security system, while ensuring it is not breached by nefarious individuals.

If you are concerned about your system being hacked, speak with your security provider. They can help you understand what safeguards are in place to minimize the possibility of being hacked.
