Can Cheap Security Systems Protect Me in an Emergency?

cheap security systems Myrtle Beach

If You Can’t Afford the Best Security System, Get What You Can Afford!

The question of whether cheap security systems can protect you in an emergency is a simple one.
The answer is ‘Yes, cheap security systems CAN protect you in an emergency, however…’

As always, there’s a caveat to such a question.

The ‘however‘ is what this article will focus on. Please read on.

Cheap Security Systems Don’t Last As Long

The problem with cheaply made products is that they are… well… cheap!

  • The materials used in cheap security systems is most likely not of the same grade as the more expensive units.
  • Corners will be cut with regards to research and testing cheaper units.

In other words, cheap security systems might not last as long and replacement costs can thus drive up your total cost.

Cheap Security Systems Don’t Always Integrate Well With Existing Hardware

If you are in the market for an upgrade and you want to go cheap, be forewarned that cheap systems often don’t integrate well with older systems or any system for that matter. Meaning, you might have to fork over more money because you might not be able to reuse existing hardware. Again, in the end, this will drive up the final cost.

Cheap Security Systems Might Break or Malfunction More Easily

Cheaply made does not always have to mean lesser quality.

When it does, however, and when cheap translates into broken or malfunctioning systems requiring maintenance, this, of course, comes at a cost.

As much as we like you, our customer, we really don’t want to come see you every month because of issues with a cheap security system. We much rather spend our time helping (new) customers set up new systems that will last a long, long time!

Cheap Security Systems Don’t Come with Good Warranties

When a system breaks to no fault of yours, warranties will allow for replacement units. That is, as long as you didn’t pick the cheapest security system without such warranty. In that case, you will be responsible for replacing units and again, cheap becomes expensive when you have these unexpected additional costs associated with your security system.

How To Select The Best Door Alarm To Keep My Assets Safe

best door alarm

Most Break-ins Happen Through Unlocked Doors!

Did you know that?

Most break-ins happen through unlocked doors and happen during the daytime hours of 10 AM – 2 PM.

Yes, that’s right! Daytime break-ins happen more than at any other time day or night, with easy access, because people don’t use their locks. We make it really easy for thieves to have access to our valuables this way.

We can do better than that, can’t we?

Let’s start with something you can do right now that will make it just a bit harder for someone to break into your home.

Make It A Habit To Always Lock Doors Behind You

Sounds simple enough, but it is a habit you need to create by doing it each and every time.

Start off by reading about evening routines to keep your family and your assets safe. You can apply some of these same principles to a daytime routine when you leave your home to go to work, to go shopping or even just going for a walk with your dog. Don’t ever assume that thieves come during the night in a black mask. Often, they come during the day, they might greet your neighbors and walk out with your valuables without anyone suspecting what they are doing.

Locking your doors is the first step.

So what is step two to prevent break-ins?

Research The Best Door Alarm To Purchase

Can we assume you always do due diligence on new purchases like homes, cars, refrigerators, and HVAC systems? You need to do due diligence on door alarms the same way.

This includes learning more about door alarms before talking to a dealer about purchasing a system.

Consider

  • price point/budget
  • size of your home
  • number of access doors and windows
  • stories of your home
  • current technology in your home
  • remote access

Once you have this information on a list, then pick up the phone and call your nearest local security dealer at 843-318-6392

Your Security Company Can Tell You More About What Brands They Prefer

Each security dealership has preferred vendors and brands they work with.

The best door alarms are those your security company uses the most, and those they trust to keep their customers and their family safe.

Why don’t you ask this:

“What door alarm do you have installed in your home?”

This should give you an answer to the question; ‘what is the best door alarm to keep my family safe?’

Go ahead and ask us today.

Then once you have a system installed, make it a habit to active your system whenever you leave your home!

Are You in Search of The Best Burglar System Money Can Buy?

best burglar system

Does Your Home Have a Burglar System?

If you have any sort of burglar system, congrats. We hope you did your research before purchasing and that you are happy with the system you picked and the provider you currently have. Have you had an emergency yet? How good was the customer service provided and how was the response time?

If you do not currently have any sort of system in your home, we assume you might want to know how to get the best burglar system money can buy!

Does Your Business Have a Burglar System?

If you own a business like us, you understand the value of preventing crime.

Employee theft, workplace accidents, vandalism, workplace invasion; each of these come with a heavy price tag.

Having a solid burglar system in place at your business location can help prevent and deter crime. A system with cameras can also help you determine cause, and guilt, of crimes.

If you do not currently have any sort of system at your place of business, we assume you might want to know how to get the best burglar system money can buy!


Here are several points to consider before buying any kind of security burglar system.

Do your Due Diligence and Research Burglar System Options First!

Why do you need a burglar alarm system?

Have you

  • recently purchased a new home?
  • moved into a new home?
  • made a state-to-state move?
  • switched neighborhoods?
  • been the victim of a crime?
  • read about the increase in crime in your town?
  • started a business?
  • taken over an existing business location?
  • recently dealt with employee theft?

Most often, something ‘triggers’ a homeowner or business owner to start looking for the best burglar system available.

The journey to select starts with solid research on what is available in your location.

Decide How Much Money You Can Spend on the Best Burglar System Money Can Buy

‘The best burglar alarm system your money can buy’ can mean many things.

When thinking about a budget think about the following cost; both now and in the future.

  • equipment
  • monthly monitoring
  • installation
  • equipment replacement
  • add-ons
  • smart home technology

Remember this:

The most basic burglar system will still deter a would-be burglar.

A fancy, automated system will make it easier for you to operate the system.

Will You Want Home Automation and Add Smart Technolgy in Your Home?

If you are going to be spending money on a burglar system, this is a great time to check out your smart home options!

These systems can and do work together.

Have you ever thought about

Talk to your trusted security company about these options BEFORE deciding on a burglar system.

Is the Track Record of the Remote Monitoring Company Important to You?

Last but not least, we want you to remember that you get what you pay for.

You could have the best equipment, the latest technology, and the nicest customer service rep, but if the response time of the monitoring company is not good, you could still be left ‘in a pickle’ when an emergency happens to you or your family!

We at Strand Security pride ourselves on working with the best in the industry!

3 of the Most Common Mistakes People Make With Do It Yourself Home Security

do it yourself home security

 Have You Ever Attempted to Install Your Own Home Security System?

We get that you want to save money. Life is expensive. Life with a family is expensive.

Just for a minute, consider the consequences of a home security install disaster.

Go ahead!Consider them.

Your family’s safety and security should be your number one priority. There are certain things you can cut corners on, and yes, saving money feels good! Let us be the first to tell you, cheap is not always the best value!

 Do it yourself home security almost always 

….starts with over-confidence.

via GIPHY

Quickly turns into a frustrating project.

via GIPHY

…and can be an utter and total fiasco and failure!

via GIPHY

As we don’t want that to happen to you and yours, here are some Do It Yourself Home Security Fails you can learn from!

You are welcome!

Do It Yourself Home Security Fail #1: Thinking You Know What Equipment You Need

The experts have seen hundreds, maybe thousands of homes and businesses and have installed countless security systems. An expert understands what each location needs and what is unique about that home or business. They check and measure the distance to exits, current lighting, ask about habits, potential users of the system and many more questions. When an expert comes to you for a consult, they take everything into consideration before deciding what equipment you need. You, on the other hand, might be lured by price points, sales at the local hardware store or by what your 80-year-old neighbor installed in his much larger, or smaller, home.

Security is not one-size-fits-all.

Therefore, ask a security expert to help you pick the exact equipment you need to secure your home and keep your family safe!

Do It Yourself Home Security Fail #2: Thinking You Know How To Wire New Equipment Correctly

Another mistake frequently people make is that they underestimate the time and knowledge it takes to install a new system correctly. Even if you’ve wired lights before, installing a security system is different.

It is only your family’s safety and security that depends on you installing a new system correctly.

Ask yourself: “Am I 100% sure I know what I am doing?”

If you can not answer that question affirmatively, it’s time to outsource this skill to an expert!

Do It Yourself Home Security Fail #3: Thinking You Know How To Integrate New and Old Equipment and Pair it With Your Smarthome.

There are tons of commercials enticing you to buy add-ons to your current system. There are even more YouTube videos available to watch and learn from. DIY videos are one of the most watched genres of videos on YouTube.

Caution ahead.

Old and New Equipment Don’t Often Integrate Well. Ask an Expert to Make Sure It Can Be Done Safely and Securely.

Just because you watched a video, that does not make you an expert.

Just because your friend is helping you install some new features, does not make you both security system installers.

Just because you think you can, does not mean you can!

A ‘Do It Yourself Home Security Fail’ Often Results In Higher Overall Security Cost

If you tired and failed to be the do-it-yourself home security installer, it is time to call in the expert.

Often, experts only work with the best systems and the best brands, something many DIY installers don’t consider. That might make your ‘deal’ on the hardware from the local hardware store, not such a good deal afterall because if you can’t use the equipment and you can’t return it, you will end up paying double, never mind the wasted time you’ll never get back!

We hope your home is safe and secure!
Let us know if disaster struck and you need us, we are only one phone call away!

best home security deals myrtle beach

Ask Your Neighbors for Security Company Recommendations

Ask your direct neighbors which security company they use, for sure, but next time you talk a walk with Fido, go for a run, or drive your car home from the grocery store, pay attention to the little signs in your neighbor’s yards!

best home security deals

Ask your Local Friends for the Best Home Security Deals

Are you on Facebook? Do some crowdsourcing and ask your local friends via Facebook to recommend a local security company.
Do you have friends who live in a different neighborhood? Ask them who they use.
If any of your friends own a business, ask them what local security company they use.

Do a Google Search for the Best Home Security Deals

Google is your friend! Do a simple Google search for ‘best home security deals’ or ‘home security company’ or something similar. Compile a list of companies who serve your location. Be aware that those who run Google ads will be listed first. Just because they pay to market doesn’t make them the best fit for your needs. Check beyond the first few and compile a list of at least five choices. Next, check to see if any of these companies have (positive) Google reviews.

Check Web Presence of Local Security Companies

Once you have a list of local security companies, we suggest checking out their web presence. Look for an ‘about’ page, location map, brands they use, a blog (like this one) and pictures and/or videos. If you can’t find a website, skip them.

Check Social Media Presence of Local Security Companies

While on the website, click through to their social media channels. Look for a Facebook Page to start and see if they have any (positive) Facebook reviews. Check to see if it is active, what is posted and when they last posted and maybe send a message to the page to check response time. Online customer service should be expected, not be the exception.

Check with your Local Chamber for Local Security Companies

Once you have your list, cross-reference your list with the local chamber. Locally owned companies are most likely active in the community and active with the local chamber. This should not be a dealbreaker by any means. However, we think you should give those who are members an extra gold star. 😉

Select and Call Local Security Companies

Now that you are pretty certain you have a solid list of local security companies, call each and everyone to find the best home security deal.
Pay attention to the following when placing a call.

  • phone etiquette
  • call return time
  • overall customer service
  • friendliness
  • quality of information
  • the quantity of information

“If someone doesn’t treat each and every potential customer with respect, that same person will not treat a customer with respect either.”

Is Cheap Home Security an Oxymoron?

cheap home security

Do You Need a Security System But Think You Can’t Afford It?

If you think you need a security system, you probably have done some due diligence on crime rates in your street, neighborhood, town, and county.  People come to us for security systems for some of the following reasons.

The last reason is what we hate to see happen to anyone!

People call us after they’ve had a home invasion, burglary or experienced personal violence. They are scared, worried, traumatized by the recent experience and need to feel secure and protected once again.

There’s not always a budget for a security system when crime happens, which of course always happens unexpectedly.

Today, we’d like to talk to you about cheap home security.

Is there such a thing as cheap home security, or is it an oxymoron? 

Is There Such a Thing as Cheap Home Security?

Well… the answer is yes.

Let’s get this straight.

“You get what you pay for.”

Having said that, here are some ideas for cheap home security (and the limitations each option brings).

  • Get a dog. Dogs aren’t free, of course, but having a dog will deter potential burglars. They’d rather go to the next house than confront a dog.
  • Put up fake security cameras. This again is a cheap solution and might give you a false sense of security. Will it deter some crime? Sure! Will it help you during a crime? Not at all.
  • Put your inside lights on timers and outdoor lights on sensors. When criminals are casing houses to break into, they will look for signs of activity. If you have lights going on and off, they might skip your home.
  • Add loud sensor alarms to your windows and doors. This will not prevent any crime, but it will alert you, the homeowner, to a crime in progress.

Adding any of these options to your home will give you a bit more security and most likely a bit more peace of mind. These are not perfect solutions by any stretch, but if you are limited on funds, these options are a good place to start.

Can A Home Security System Be Cheap and Good At the Same Time?

Yes and yes!

Home security systems come in all shapes, sizes, and brands. They run the gamut in equipment fees, monitoring fees, and smart-home intergration.

We can install a very basic home security system that you can afford. We offer great monitoring rates with the best monitoring service. We trust not just our customers with COPS monitoring, but our own family as well!

How Should You Decide On a Security System?

The best way to decide on a security system is to read this article; ‘What is the best home security system?’

This article features 5 questions you, as a homeowner, should answer before picking up the phone and calling us.

Once you have an idea of what you want, what you can afford and what you need, we are ready to talk shop with you!

What Type Of Security Can You Get on A Limited Budget?

Even on a limited budget, you should be able to get a solid security system to fit your needs.

We recommend budgeting for a monthly monitoring fee to get a complete package and the best service and security.

How To Get The Best Cheap Home Security for Your Budget

#2 Check the company out online. Read reviews, check their website and social media channels.
#3 Ask about technician experience. Anyone who is proud of their work will tell you how long they’ve been in the business and why!
#4 Call your local chamber or the BBB for recommendations. Any legitimate business will be registered and most likely be active in the community.
#5 Ask for current specials and promotions. Some companies run online promotions you might not know about when you call. They most likely will be happy to give you that promotion. All you have to do is ask.

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.

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!

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!
