January is National Personal Self-Defense Awareness Month

Myrtle Beach Self Defense Classes

Do you Know How To Defend Yourself?

January is National Personal Self-Defense Awareness month! We want YOU to be safe and secure at all times and this month we teamed up with another local business, Karate World, to bring FREE self-defense to our community.

FREE self defense class Myrtle Beach

This past weekend we brought together a great group of local people, including five children who together learned how to kick, squeeze, pinch, punch, push and chop themselves out of potential danger!

FREE Myrtle Beach Self Defense Class

One of the main things we teach during these introductory self-defense classes is to try to PREVENT an assault before it happens.
As Master Jason quoted in class

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

This certainly applies to self-defense.

The Importance of Giving Back to our Myrtle Beach Community

Heather, owner at Strand Security knows first-hand the importance of self-defense training. She credits self-defense training with saving her life when she was confronted by a criminal at gunpoint several years back. You can read her story of survival here.

It took her several years to overcome the trauma of that event. She’s now determined to bring self-defense to any and all who want it, need it or might like to know it!

The local community, as well as the local news, is taking notice of her mission!

⭐️ Heather was interviewed by WMBF News nearly two years ago when she started Myrtle Beach Self Defense.

⭐️ WBTW News 13 came out this past weekend to do a story on the FREE class.

What is the Best Home Security System?

best home security system

Are You In The Market For A New Home Security System?

Are you a new homeowner? Have you recently moved to the Myrtle Beach area? Are you unhappy with your current home security system? If you fall in any of these three categories you might be looking for the best home security system available to you!

We want you to know we’ve got you covered!

Strand Security is a locally owned and locally operated security company. We provide both residential security systems as well as commercial security systems. If you need to protect those you love, we can help you get started with the best home security system your money can buy!

What Makes A Security System The Best Home Security System?

If you were to talk to 20 experts, you might find 20 different opinions about what the best home security system might be. That doesn’t make it any easier to decide, does it? I bet you’ve called around, looked on the internet, maybe you’ve asked your friends yet you still aren’t’ sure what defines ‘the best home security system’. There are so many bells, whistles, brands, companies, options to choose from!

Help is on the way!

We have identified five important markers for you to check to find the best home security system for your home and family.

That is exactly what you need to start with:

 identify your personal needs, goals and wants in a home security system in order to find the best home security system available to you

Here are the five questions you need to ask yourself!

Grab a piece of paper and start writing down answers, then give us a call!

best home security system available to you

1) What is The Best Home Security System For The Size and Location of Your Home?

What type of system you need, and want, depends on your home; the size, layout, and location.

Here are some factors to consider.

  • Do you own your home?
  • Are you renting?
  • Are you in an apartment or condo?
  • Do you live in a city, neighborhood, or in a rural community?
  • How old is your home?
  • What is the square footage of your home?
  • How many exit doors?
  • How many floors do you have?
  • How many bedrooms?
  • Do you have a garage?
  • Is it detached or attached?

Next, let’s talk money!

2) What is The Best Home Security System That Fits Your Financial Budget?

As we can’t look in your pocketbook, or checkbook for that matter. Therefore, you should find a price point you are happy with before contacting a security company. It will help them, and you, decide on what you can afford at this time. If your financial situation changes, you can add additional features and services! If you have to go ‘bare-bones’ to start with, go for it, but make sure to make that a clear objective when searching for the best home security system.

Next, let’s talk functionality!

3) What is The Best Home Security System For Your Intended Usage?

Not everyone likes bells and whistles. Not everyone needs or wants all the latest technology or the highest ranked equipment. It is important, however, that your system performs the tasks you need it to perform!

Answer these questions.

Once you have an idea about functionality, it’s time to talk integration.

4) What is The Best Home Security System To Integrate With Your Current Installed Technology?

If you bought a new home with security system equipment installed, your (new) provider needs to know what system and what equipment is currently in your home. Sometimes this equipment can be reused or repurposed; this will depend on what brands your provider works with and the age of the system and equipment. If you already own home automation hardware and software and you want to integrate a new security system with it, your security provider needs to know this as well. It is important to make a list of all technology in your home.

5) What is The Best Home Security System To Compliment Your Family’s Needs?

There is a difference between what your intended usage is and what your family’s needs are. Talking to your security provider is a great place to start. Tell them who lives in your home, who might need access to your system, whether you travel, if you also own a business which needs security and more.


Answering these questions after having answered the four previous questions will help your provider give you options for the best home security system for your current home.

We welcome any and all inquiries about security systems. We are here to help protect those you love.

We invite you to check out Honeywell Total Connect.

How To Prevent Your Bike From Being Stolen

How to prevent your bike from being stolen

Are You Asking Santa For A Bike?

Many children, teenagers, college students and yes, adults will be getting new bicycles for Christmas! Biking is fun and the exercise is good for your body. What’s not to love?

Here is the thing though; as much as you love your bike, so do thieves!

Bicycles Are Easy To Steal

Bicycles are easy to steal.

Just ask anyone in the Netherlands where bike riding is a way of life.

Here are some fun and not-so-fun facts about bicycles in the Netherlands.

(and we are sharing these because we can learn from the Dutch about how to protect our property!)

  • 84% of Dutch people own at least one bicycle
  • With 17 million inhabitants, the Dutch own 22.3 million bicycles
  • The Dutch collectively ride 15 billion kilometers every year, which comes out to more than 9 billion miles!
  • 27% of all trips in the Netherlands are by bicycle
  • Hundreds of thousands bicycles are stolen every year.

Where and how are these bicycles stolen?

Most bikes are stolen from stores, train stations and schools, as that’s the mode of transportation for the Dutch.

In the USA, most bicycles are stolen from where you think they might be safe; from homes, garages and yards.

Bicycles Are Easy To Steal

How Can You Prevent Your Bike From Being Stolen?

There are ways to make it harder for a thief to ride off with your possession!

1) Always Lock Your Bicycle

Don’t make it too easy for someone to walk or ride away with your bicycle. Always, always double check that your bicycle is locked before walking away from it.

2) Use Multiple Locks!

Fact; many Dutch people use two (or three) locks! They idea is that if you use multiple locks, it takes longer for a thief to open the locks and thus to steal your bike. Chances are someone might see the thief mess with the bike and alert authorities. One lock makes it just too easy!

3) Use a Certified Lock

There are locks and then there are locks. A cheap lock can be opened with a screwdriver in under 2 seconds! Seriously. So buying a more expensive lock buys time because they will be much harder to open! Certified locks are more expensive, but if you (or Santa) have already paid for an expensive bike, don’t you want to protect your investment?

4) Secure the Lock  High on Your Bicycle

This is to prevent a thief from using the ground to leverage whatever tool they are using to break your lock. It’s an added security measure that’s easy to remember – lock up high.

5) Secure Your Bike To a Stationary Object

We recommend using a long, strong chain lock to secure your bicycle to a permanent, stationary object. In your garage that might be a bolted-down bike rack or a heavy wall unit. When out and about we recommend you secure your bicycle to a garden gate, a metal fence or a mailbox post, just to name a few options if you are looking around.

6) Secure the Bicycle Frame, Not Just a Wheel

Smart thieves would know how to leave the wheel and steal your bike! Make sure to lock the frame of your bicycle to the stationary object. This is where a second or even third lock would come in handy; first secure the frame to a stationary object, then secure the wheels to the frame.

7) Choose a Well-lit and Safe Location to Leave Your Bicycle

If you have a choice, leave your bicycle in full view of where you will be. If you are going in a store, lock up your bicycle right outside. If this is not an option, leave the bicycle in full view of the general public. Locking it up in a dark parking garage gives thieves a real opportunity to come and steal your bike as not many people will witness the crime.

8) At Home, Install Security Cameras Near Your Bike Storage

Cameras are your friend! Install security cameras in your garage, trained on your bicycle and other valuables.

9) Add a GPS Tracker to Your Bicycle

Another tool you can use is a GPS tracker. You will know where your bicycle is at all times!


These tips are all for bicycles, but they work for motorcycles as well!

Have fun, and be safe on the road – don’t forget to wear your helmet.

New Baby? You Need More Security and Home Safety

more security and safety with new baby in the home

Congrats, You Are New Parents!

With this added bundle of joy in your family, comes added responsibility for you as new parents!

Mom + Dad + Baby = Family

As the leaders of the pack so to speak, you are in charge of keeping everyone in your new family safe, and your most valuable possessions secure.

If you have an older child, or two, or three, you’ve most likely already adjusted some of your security and safety protocols each time you added a new bundle of joy to your family. If this is your first baby, we want to make sure that you are informed to make the best decisions regarding safety and security for your family.

How Do You Keep Your Home Safe for Your New Baby?

Here are a few tips we’ve gathered from the experts i.e other parents and security professionals.

  1. Install a security system with HD cameras and remote access
  2. Use a mobile app to check-in on babysitter and baby from work or wherever you might be
  3. Connect your fire alarm and CO2 detectors to your monitored alarm system
  4. Connect door alarms to your home security system to alert you when any outside door is opened
  5. Connect a pool alarm to your system so you know when someone (or something) enters your pool
  6. Use timers for lights and also install motion-detecting lights to deter criminals
  7. Install childproof locks on cabinets that hold household cleaning supplies and chemicals
  8. Keep all guns locked up at all times in a gun safe
  9. Teach older children to not open the door to strangers

Keeping baby safe inside the home is great, but what about dangers coming in from outside?

A home invasion is a very traumatic experience, whether you have a new baby, or not.

How do you keep your home safe for your baby?

How Do You Keep Your Home Secure for Your New Baby?

  1. Make sure your security system is monitored by a trust-worthy monitoring station with a quick response time.
  2. Install and use a baby video monitor in baby’s room to check on baby when at home, or add an extra security camera to your system to monitor baby from anywhere in the home and while away from home.
  3. Add additional smoke detectors near your bedroom and baby’s room
  4. Insist on background checks on all your domestic help, including your babysitter
  5. When having work done on your home, be sure to double check that all windows and doors are secured and locked at the end of each day
  6. Each night, do an evening walk-through check to secure your home
  7. If you’ve just moved into a new home because you needed more room for baby, get all locks changed immediately

 

There is never a guarantee that a break-in or home evasion won’t happen to you and yours, yet there are many ways to deter a criminal. Then if you have a monitored security alarm system, you have the added knowledge that when help is ever needed, help is on the way with the push of one button, or with one tripped wire, or with one smoke alarm going off.

We welcome your thoughts, questions and feedback!

How To Teach Children Self Defense and Why They Need It

How to teach children self defense. Why should children know self defense.

Self Defense Classes in Myrtle Beach

One of the most frequently asked questions about our Myrtle beach Self Defense classes is

“Can I bring my daughter/son?”

The answer is a definite yes! We encourage participation of children and teenagers in our self defense classes. We understand that one of the biggest fears a parent has is the personal safety and overall wellbeing of their child. We understand, because we are parents ourselves.

Therefore, our self defense classes welcome young children and teenagers alike, to come train alongside their parent.

Anyone, at any age, could benefit from self defense classes!

Why Do Children Need To Know Self Defense?

There are some easy answers to this question “Why do children need to know self defense?”

Safety, awareness, power and much, much more; a list with the reasons why all of our children, male and female, need to know how to defend themselves (against a bully at school or in case of an attempted kidnapping) goes on and on.

Children can learn self defense

Here is a List of 11 Things Self Defense Teaches Kids!

It is by no means a complete list, but a great start to understand how self defense can help your child in childhood and beyond! (think college, and work environment!)

  1. Personal Safety
  2. Overall Fitness
  3. Coordination
  4. Discipline
  5. Confidence
  6. Assertiveness
  7. Communication
  8. Spatial concepts
  9.  Awareness (of surrounding and danger)
  10. Stand up to bullying
  11. Prevent accidents

At What Age Should a Child Learn Self Defense?

There is no ‘right’ age and no ‘wrong’ age for children to learn self defense, but we recommend starting the process early! In our Myrtle Beach Self Defense Classes we’ve had girls as young a 6 years old join the class. Often, preteens and teenager join us – and not all girls either. We feel anytime a child asks is a good time to teach them self defense, as well as anytime you feel your child could use a dose of self confidence.

When the children are very young, simple tricks and useful language are taught. Even a six year old can yell, scream, pull hair, bite, kick and punch and adult!

When teenagers come in to our self defense classes, they are often more reserved and need to be encouraged to be more vocal. They are taught to yell and draw attention to the situation before it escalates. With the older teens we also go over rape defense, knife safety, gun safety and pepper spray usage – because why have it not be able to use it?

How Should Children Be Taught Self Defense?

Private classes or group self defense classes and martial arts classes are great ways to teach children self defense.

Children (and adults) learn by repetition, so we encourage children to get on the mat and learn self defense moves. We also demonstrate how to escape, how to attack, how to defend and much, much more. We purposely don’t always match people up according to size, because often those who attack you will be bigger, stronger, larger, taller. That type of intimidation needs to be removed – a child needs to have the confidence to know s/he can do something to get out of a dangerous or hairy situation, even if the attacker is larger or taller.

We recommend repeating self defense classes at a minimum twice per year, if the child  is not enrolled in a martial art program, but ideally s/he would take a monthly class to be able to keep practicing and learning these self defense moves!

Check out our Facebook Page Myrtle Beach Self Defense and ‘like’ us to stay informed of new classes.

Also, check out our Myrtle Beach Self Defense website to learn about our mission and our ‘why‘.

How To Best Prevent Crime at Your Construction Site

How to prevent crime at your construction site Myrtle Beach

Do You Know What Happens At Your Construction Site During Off Hours?

Many construction sites deal with the same two crimes:

Theft (of tools, equipment and materials)
✓ Vandalism

The Grand Strand/Myrtle Beach area is undergoing a huge surge in new construction of homes and businesses and thus there are many new construction sites popping up. Each site deals with theft and vandalism, and we do get calls and inquiries about how to prevent crime from happening.

As much as the advice is

‘Don’t leave anything of value at your construction site unattended’

that advice, in reality, isn’t very practical.

What is realistic, is that sometimes you need to leave materials, equipment and large tools at the site. The good news?

There are ways to protect these items.

Here are some ideas on how to get started.

General Crime Prevention Tips for Your Construction Site

  1. Identify all your assets and property at your site and index/catalogue them so they can be tracked at any time.
  2. Engrave tools and special tag other equipment.
  3. Connect with neighbors, nearby businesses and neighborhood watches so they are aware of your site.
  4. Bring awareness and offer training to your crew and discuss how they need to do their part (lock up)
  5. Do background checks on your employees.
  6. Utilize fencing if at all possible to deter theft and vandalism.
  7. Post notices around your fence that this construction area is protected and monitored.
  8. Secure tools and equipment in a locked shed or box when not in use.
  9. Secure shed and lockbox in the center of your site, not along the perimeter.
  10. As not all theft comes from outsiders, have a tool ‘check-in, check-out’ system in place.
  11. Perform a final ‘check’ at the end of each work day; a walk around your site.
  12. Only have the absolute necessary equipment and materials on hand. Do not use your construction site as storage.

General Crime PRevention Tips for your Myrtle Beach or Grand Strand Construction Site

Preventing Crime At A Construction Site Which Has Electricity

  1. Make use of motion-detecting flood lights and special lights.
  2. Set up a security alarm system that alerts a monitoring company and the authorities.
  3. You can add an audible siren to deter crime or go with a silent alarm that’s tripped when intruders arrive.
  4. Set up (remote) video surveillance for your construction site and monitor from any device, anywhere.

Preventing Crime At A Construction Site With No Electricity

  1. Hire a security firm with security guards to patrol your site overnight.
  2. Make sure to take extra care to lock up tools, equipment and materials each night and consider taking tools home.

As always, preventing crime is a much better option that reporting crime and having to replace tools, equipment or materials. The time it takes to set up and secure your site is nothing compared to the time it would take to replace stolen tools, equipment or materials or have to fix an act of vandalism.

We highly encourage you to talk to your security specialist before it is too late!

3 Reasons To Be Thankful For Your Security System

3 reasons to be thankful for your security system

What Are You Thankful For?

We have seen this question asked all month as it’s November.  Many people practice #ThankfulNovember or #30daysofthankfulness on social media, sharing small and large things, places and people they are thankful for each day!

We are so lucky to live in beautiful Myrtle Beach! We are lucky to live near the beach, have gorgeous weather most of the year and live a bountiful life lived in short, t-shirt and flip-flops!

What about you? What are you thankful for?

  • Are you thankful for your health?
  • Are you thankful for your home?
  • Are you thankful for your job?
  • Are you thankful for your family?

There are many people in this world who do not have basic necessities such as access to clean drinking water, food and a roof over their head. There are many people in this world who live in areas of unrest and war; we are so lucky to live in a place in this world with access to all of these things.

If you are lucky enough to live in a safe and secure home with an alarm system like we do, isn’t it time to list some of the reasons it makes you thankful?

We have come up with 3 reasons to be thankful for your security system. Read and let us know if you feel the same way!

3 reasons to be thankful for your security system Myrtle Beach

Your Security System Will Keep Your Loved Ones Safe

This alone should be the #1 reason you are thankful for your security system. In case of attack, fire or home invasion, your security system – if connected to our monitoring company C.O.P.S. – can call the authorities for back up, whatever agency is needed (rescue, fire or police).

Minutes and seconds saved can be the difference between a good or a very bad outcome of any of these scenarios.

We are thankful that our security system keeps our loved ones safe!

Your Security System Deters Crime At Your Business

If you, like us, own a business, you know firsthand how much effort, time and money has gone in to making your business successful. You want that taken away in an instant now, would you?

A fire that would totally destroy your retail store can do that. Employee theft can cripple your bottom line. An accident in your restaurant which results in a lawsuit can do that – but with a security system and security cameras in place, and a monitoring company to back you up, your business is protected.

We are thankful that our security system deters crime our our business!

Your Security System Gives You Overall Peace of Mind

Now when you add “Will Keep Your Loved Ones Safe” to “Deters Crime At Your Business” you got what?

Peace of mind!

If you can rest easy because your family is protected and you can rest easy because your business is protected, how much is that worth to you?

We are thankful that our security system gives us overall peace of mind!

Do Fake Security Cameras Prevent Crime?

DO fake security cameras prevent crime?

Do You Feel Safer When You Detect Cameras?

When you are out and about and you see cameras at the following commercial locations

  • restaurant
  • car dealership
  • retail store
  • bank
  • gym
  • school
  • gas station

do you feel an immediate sense of safety and security?

Sure you do!

Most of these establishments have REAL cameras and are recording your activities, some are even monitoring your activities in real-time.

Would it make a difference to you and how you’d feel if you knew any number of these cameras were fake? Would you be able to detect if any of these cameras were fake? Would you avoid those commercial locations if you knew there were no real cameras recording your every move?

In retail stores, gas stations , car dealerships, restaurants and gyms, often cameras are used to prevent theft, as well as to protect their employees.

In schools and banks, often these cameras are used to keep employees and customers safe from harm first and foremost, and of course also help deter crime such as theft.

At home, home owners who have cameras report  feeling a higher level of security then those without, especially if the cameras are connected to the monitoring system and the camera feed is accessible from a remote location.

Home Security Cameras – Who and What Are You Deterring?

If a burglar detects cameras while casing a home, s/he most likely will stake out a different home.

However, if this crime is to be a crime of opportunity (as in; they see you leave, or they know you are on vacation, or at work), most often the criminal does not care whether you have any cameras, as it will be a quick come and go.

With cameras installed and visible, you are deterring potential burglars, but not deterring professional criminals.

So what about just adding fake security cameras strategically places on the outside of your home?

Will fake security cameras prevent crime?

The answer is YES and BUT.

YES, fake security cameras will prevent some crime BUT there are a few important things fake security cameras can not do for you!

via GIPHY

Here are 3 Things Fake Security Cameras Can Not Do

1) Prevent All Crime As These Cameras Are Easily Detectable

So fake cameras are just that, fake. A professional burglar can and will detect the cameras and identify them as fake quickly. Even those with the blinking red lights and those that move – or should we say, especially those with blinking red lights and those that move, randomly?

Once these fake cameras have been identified as fake, a burglar will continue their plan to break in with more confidence.

2) These Camera Can Not Provide Proof of the Crime

If a crime does take place, real security cameras can provide the police with a solid description of the criminals by the recordings. For obvious reasons, fake cameras will have no such footage and thus will yield no description of any criminal.

3) Provide Real Security

Real security cameras connected to your monitored alarm system can provide real-time updates on an on-going crime and then alert those who are monitoring your system to call for help an back up, in real time and with detail! Using your security camera feeds, the company can spot the number of assailants in the home as well as the weapons they carry and where they are located in the home. This information can be relayed to the police to aid in apprehending the suspects and keep you and your family alive.


To sum it all up, fake security cameras give a false, or fake, sense of security.

Fake security cameras do not prevent crime.

Fake security cameras might deter a fraction of potential crimes, but will be of no use in a dangerous situation.

3 Important Reasons Your Business Needs a Panic Button

You might know an elderly person with a personal panic button.

Don’t we all remember the first commercial (1987) with that famous line:

“I have fallen and I can’t get up”

Personal panic buttons are wonderful and enable our seniors and disabled citizen to live a more independent life then they would without.

 a personal panic button for personal safety

However, panic buttons are not just for personal use (or for banks). Regular businesses could and should consider installing panic buttons in their place of business. Not convinced? Let us show you the ways…

3 Important Reasons Your Business Needs a Panic Botton

A Panic Button is Cost Effective for your Business

What does this mean? Many businesses spent lots of money on safety and security of their goods, but not on the safety and security of their employees. However, if an employee gets hurt on the job, or worse, cost skyrockets. Getting a quick response time during emergencies can help save a life. A panic button at your place of business can summon help quickly when 9-1-1 can not be called from a phone.

Why your business needs a panic button

A Panic Button Protects If the Threat Comes from Within

Businesses put up barriers like gates, buzz-in systems and steel doors to prevent criminals from entering their building. Businesses add security cameras and security systems to further deter criminals from stealing, loitering and attacking. However, what happens if the threat comes from within the business? From someone who is already inside the business, maybe a coworker or trusted delivery person? While current events show us that no one is safe from harm, no matter where you live and where you go in public (a concert, a bank, a school or a movie theater), a panic button can help those who are in a dire situation quickly!

A panic button can safe the lives of your employees

A Panic Button Promotes Workplace Safety

When your company deals with the public, and customers come into your place of business for a service or a product, and you have a slew of ‘random strangers’ coming through your door like it is a revolving door, it is imperative that you protect your employees as well as your customers from potential danger. A panic button near the cash register, or strategically placed around the workplace, or even on your manager or person-in-charge will allow a call for help within seconds of an emergency. Often it is seconds, not minutes that can make the difference between life and death. Employees who feel save at work perform better.

Protect those who work for you with a panic button at your business

Do you own a business on the Grand Strand, in the Myrtle Beach area? We would love to come talk to you about installing panic buttons in your place of business. From our own personal experience, we know how important this back up is.
