Why You Need To Replace Your Batteries Now!

Does Your Home Have Smoke Detectors?

Replace your smoke detector batteries now to keep your family safe!

Today is the Autumn Equinox and since this day is the start of a ‘change’ of season, we are using this date to remind you to change something very important in your home!

If you own your home, and even if you rent, you should be aware of the date you last changed your smoke detector batteries.

Go ahead. Think of the date. We’ll wait a minute…
Can’t recall when it was?

Most people when asked when they last did change their smoke detector batteries will either say

I don’t recall

or

When the alarm started to chirp in the middle of the night because the battery was low

Neither of these answers is a very good one!

If you are the responsible adult in charge of the home you need to not only know this, but you need to have a plan to make sure your smoke detectors work when an emergency arises!

Happy Fall - Tak e the time to check your battries and replace the once that need replacing!

Prevention and Detection Are Key To Getting Out Alive During A Fire!

We want you to be safe!

We have a super simple plan for you to implement RIGHT NOW to keep your smoke detectors in working order when they are needed.

Here’s the plan:

  1. Go to the store and by a multipack of batteries (most smoke detectors take 9V batteries)
  2. Replace all batteries in all smoke detectors in your home today.
  3. Pick up your Smartphone. Either place a reminder to change the batteries again on ‘this date one year from now’ in your Google calendar, or in whatever reminder app you might use.

Done!

Why You Need To rplace your smoke detector and carbon monoxide batteries now

Carbon Monoxide Detectors Batteries Need To be Replaced As Well!

If this is the first time you’ve heard about Carbon Monoxide Detectors and if you aren’t sure about what they are, what they do and why your home and business needs these, read this first!

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a deadly, colorless, odorless, poisonous gas that is produced by the incomplete burning of various fuels.

Many people install carbon monoxide monitors that you plug-in to the wall or run on batteries.

Of course, these batteries need to be replaced, too!

While these kind of detectors are great (it’s better to have those than no sensors at all!), they do not have the ability to call for outside help when needed if you are incapacitated.

Therefore, if you have a security alarm system, we recommend hooking up the carbon monoxide sensors right to your security alarm; the carbon monoxide levels in your home or business will be monitored 24/7!

We at Strand Security use Honeywell Total Connect™ for this and as we read on the Honeywell Total Connect™ website

System Sensor carbon monoxide (CO) detectors provide the highest level of CO protection available. Our system-connected devices enable 24/7 central station monitoring that ensures occupants or building management will be alerted if the detector goes into alarm, is disabled, or has reached its six-year end-of-life and needs to be replaced. Furthermore, this system monitoring provides an extra level of protection in cases when occupants are unable to respond to the alarm.

Run To The Store and Get Your Batteries Today!

Whether you decide to change your batteries today, or if you want to wait until the first of the month, the MOST IMPORTANT part of this is that you will ACT and DO IT as soon as possible!

Would you ever go drive your car with a broken seatbelt, or broken brakes?
Would you allow your child to ride a horse or a bicycle without a helmet?
Would you go an a boat that had no life jackets?

NO!

Get the batteries, replace them ASAP and be secure in knowing you are protected in case of an emergency!

What To Think About Before Contacting a Security Alarm Company

What to think about before contacting a security alarm company

You Know You Need a Security System, Now What?

If you’ve made the decision to protect those you love and those you are responsible for – your family and your employees, and it’s time to get a security system – or to update one – there are some things you need to do and know BEFORE your contact a security company.

Proper preparation prevents poor performance

If you do not know WHAT you want or need, how can you expect someone to give you what you want and need?

Therefore, we suggest you go over this list and put some thoughts on paper before calling and selecting a security company!

 

Whom and What Will You Be Protecting?

Whom will you be protecting?

  • your home and your family
  • your business and your employees

What will you be protecting?

  • what is the square footage
  • # of stories
  • # of entry ways
  • type of neighborhood
  • specific location
  • do you own, rent or lease this space

What Is It Worth To You To Protect Those You Care About?

Now you will need to take a look at your budget.

Your budget will need to include

  • equipment (cameras, sensors etc)
  • the total install price
  • a monthly payment you are comfortable with

This budget does not need to be set in stone, but contacting a security company without a clear idea about what you can afford will waste your time, as well as theirs.

Need a new security system? Start here, Myrtle Beach residents!

What Features Do You Want With Your Security System?

You’ve propably looked and asked around and you are most likely aware about the latest technology and newest features security systems can offer.

Your “wish list” could include items like

This would also be a great time to think about other features and option that tie into a security system

and more

Who Will Need Access To Your New System

Next you’ll need to have an idea about who will need access to your system (this is important because of potential training and access codes involved)

  • you
  • your family
  • your employees

Once You Have an Idea About What You Might Need and Want, It Is Time To Talk To a Professional

Now that you know what you can afford, what your security needs are and what you’d like to have installed, a professional can help you make final decisions to fit those parameters.
