After-School Home Safety Tips To Keep Families Safe and Protected

after school safety tips for families

Kids are going back to school and that means parents who work outside of the home, will have help with caring for their kids after-school.

Whether it’s a babysitter, family member, neighbor or whether your child teenager is old enough to come home to an empty house, it’s important to go voer home safety rules every so often. Take the month of August to reevaluate your family safety plan.

Being aware of potential danger is the first stop to preventing harm!

The Ride (or Walk) Home

School bus safety and rules come from the school district. Take the time to go over the school bus rules with your child so that they know what to expect. It is important to tell your child(ren) to let you know that the ride to and from school isn’t safe any longer for a variety of reasons (bullying, unsafe driver, unruly students, heat or cold)

If you child walks home alone, or with a group of friends, make sure you have a system set up to check on them each day right after they arrive home. Go over the rules (no lingering, don’t bring friends home) so that you both know what to expect!

Kids Home Alone

When is your child ready to stay home alone after school? It depends on each child as well as the area you live in, technology you currently have installed in your home, the maturity level of the child and the state you live in (law)

Read more about how to know your child is safe to stay home alone after school.

If you think your child might be ready to be home alone without a babysitter or after-school care, read this!

Babysitters, Tutors and Neighbors, Oh My!

If you do need to give a babysitter, tutor or neighbor access to your home, it’s important to have a security system installed with a mobile app so that you can have a visual of what’s going on at home!

Hiring a babysitter should not stress you out , instead focus on creating a back-to-school family safety plan!

Strangers at the Door!

Tips about how to handle a stranger at the door, from a previous article here on the Strand Security Blog. We suggest you share the following with your teenager who might be home alone!

1 Take a look at the Stranger.

Try to get a look at who is knocking on your door. You may need to find a window in the house that makes your front door visible or use the peephole if you have one. You must have a way to see who is at the front door without opening it!

2 Keep Your Phone on You.

Have your phone visibly on you for the knocker to see. If a situation should occur you will have easy access to call 911.

3 Call Out to Someone in the House.

Can someone get the door?” or  “I’ll get it

Maybe you are alone but the knocking stranger does not have to know that! Make it evident that there are others in the house with you. This can deter any planned unwanted activities.

4 Do Not Ignore Them.

Sometimes the first reaction is to just ignore a stranger’s knock all together. However, in doing so, you are silently announcing that your house is empty and now is a good time to break in. So, it is better to say something no matter the time of day. A majority of break-ins occur during the day when people are thought to be at work.

5 Request Their Identity.

If a utility worker knocks at your door, ask for them to prove their identity with the company they work for. You can always call the subject’s company to check if they have sent someone to your house.

6 Do Not Share Information.

Strangers may take advantage of you by saying they are in trouble, hurt or in need of help. As much as we all would like to help our fellow citizens, it may be a better choice to let them know you are calling 911 and help is on the way.

Technology can help in this situation! Read more about which devices can help here.

Cyber Safety at Home

THIS is the time to talk to your kids and teenagers about online safety: cyber security! Not when they start to act strange, not when they are upset, scared or sad. Talk to them before leaving them home alone for extended periods of time!

Cyber safety and security should take an important, prominent place in your back-to-school family safety plan.

Set rules, boundaries and check in often!

House Rules

Last but not least… house rules are house rules whether you are home as a parent, or not! Make sure you instill a sense of responsibility in your child or teenager, to build mutual trust. Respect goes both ways. Always be sure to tell the kids you’ll be checking the cameras remotely if they are home alone. They need to know you can see them or talk with them.

Safety rules about pool usage, opening doors for strangers or or operating dangerous tools are all important enough to warrant a frequent reminder!

Your house, your rules, and that includes rules for friends and rules for pets, too!

After-School Activities!

We wish you, your family, your kids a fantastic 2021-2022 school year. We are here to help you navigate it all. If you need smarthome solutions to keep your family safe, need (additional) security cameras, or a panic button for your employees or elderly parents, we can help you with all of that!

If you are thinking a home theater would be great to have at home, we can help with the design, installation and servicing for that as well! Just give us a call!

3 Valentine’s Day Tips To Secure Your Home While You Are Celebrating

valentine's day tips to keep your home secure

Do You Have Plans for Valentine’s Day?

Happy Valentine’s Day! We wish you a wonderful day with the one you love. How will we spend Valentine’s Day?  We will take time to be with our family!

Valentine’s Day is a great time to stop and thank those we love and those who have a daily impact on our lives.

At Strand Security, we love our customers, we love our staff and we love our community.

Valentine’s Day is a great time to let someone know you care. And what says ‘I care’ more than helping someone stay safe and secure? Here are 3 tips to secure your home while you are celebrating Valentine’s Day, or not!

via GIPHY

 1. Don’t Announce Your Valentine’s Day Plans Online

It seems so simple! Yet many people, teenagers and adults, make this mistake: they will announce their plans to go somewhere, online! Criminals do monitor social media and someone might see your post and know you are away for the day or the evening!

Posting your Valentine’s Day plans online is just not a smart move. Instead, wait until you are home to post pictures or a status.

It’s a simple way to secure your home and we certainly don’t wish a burglary on anyone! Holidays are prime days for criminals: they know people are excited, distracted and often let their guard down. Don’t be that person that is targeted!

2. Arm your System When You Leave

If you have plans to go out and celebrate Valentine’s Day, please remember to do this one thing! Nothing will spoil your day or night quicker than coming home to a home that’s been burglarized!

Before you leave for the day or evening, remember to arm your system. It’s a simple thing to do but an equally simple thing to forget as you rush out the door to make it to a romantic dinner. 😉

Arm your system before you leave and have a fantastic date, worry-free.

3. Arm Your System When You Stay In!

Now if you have prepared a lovely backyard Valentine’s Day dinner, or any other home cooked family meal, don’t forget to arm you home! If you are distracted and busy in the home, you still would want your home to be armed, especially if you are in the backyard, or occupied somewhere in the house not near a entrance way. It’s a good habit to get into: arm your home when you are home!

Valentine’s Day Is All About Love!

Nothing says “I love you” more than keeping those you love safe and sound and caring enough to to action.

If you do not have an alarm system in your home, we encourage you to consider the possibilities! Come talk to us and protect those you love.

How to Connect With the Right Home Security Company

home security company near me Myrtle beach

Are You Looking for a Home Security Company?

When moving to a new town or state or when you purchase a new home, it might be time to find a home security company to help you navigate the security and safety concerns of your new home.

How do you go about vetting the many choices of home security companies to find the one that is right for you?

This article will give you a few tips to get you moving in the right direction. Ultimately, it’s up to you to find and connect with the best fit and the best company to protect your home and family!

Connecting with the Right Home Security Company

When it’s time to choose a home security company to install and maintain your security system, understand you should always focus more attention on customers service and brand quality, than on price.

Ultimately, just about anyone with a screwdriver can hang a security camera – but it’s the knowledge and years of experience that will tell a professional where to hang that camera and to what system to connect it, as well as diagnose system failures or service interruptions.

Connecting with the right security company means connecting with a company that is interested and invested in your community and will serve your community for years to come.

Here is how we would start a search to connect with the right home security company.

1 Research ‘Local Home Security Company’ Online

Before leaving your home, and don’t we all want to avoid that these days, start your research online. Google ‘local home security company’ and add your location if needed.

Look for websites, Google reviews, social media presence, online reviews and images.

Create a list of several local home security companies.

2 Ask For Referrals from Friends and Neighbors

Next, ask your friends and neighbors for referrals. Don’t just ask ‘Who do you use?’ but ask them questions about WHY they picked that local business and what they love about working with them. Ask them what services they’ve contracted for and how responsive that company is when an emergency arises!

3 Keep an Eye Out for Service Vehicles and Signs in your Area

Last but not least, keep an eye out for service vehicles in your neighborhood. When you take your dog for a walk, try to find signs. When you take a bike ride with your family, look for those service vehicles. take note of which ones are helping your neighbors with their home security needs!

4 Pick Up The Phone and Call

Now that you have developed a list of potential local home security companies you want to give your business to, pick up the phone and call! There is no substitute for a phone call inquiring about services!

You will know pretty quickly if you are getting what is ‘advertised’ so to speak!

Does a human answer the phone? If you got the answering service or a machine, how quickly, if at all, was your call returned? Did you get answers to your questions and a friendly human on the line? Move this company to the top of your list!

5 Prioritize Your Needs and Wishes

Once you have a top 3 of local home security companies you potentially want to work with, make a list of services you need now, and additional services they offer that you are interested in for a future project.

That could includes additional services like

Choose Locally Owned and Locally Operated!

One more point to drive home. We highly recommend asking each potential business if they are locally owned and locally operated. Supporting your local businesses in 2021 is more important than ever. 

If you are in the Myrtle Beach area, in Horry County or in Georgetown County, we invite your to give us a call!

10 Reasons To Love Quality Speakers

This is the 7th article in a series of 12 articles. 2020 is the year we at Strand Security celebrate our 10th anniversary by giving you 10 reasons to love the things we love as well:

In previous articles in 2020, we gave you 10 reason to love….our community, the Grand Strand, Smarthomes, Home Theater, Living in South Carolina, security cameras and now we will give you 10 reasons to love quality speakers!

What Makes a Great Speaker?

There are, of course, some recognizable brands of speakers.

Sonos is a big one and we’ve blogged about Sonos before as that’s a brand we’ve loved for a long while!

Another ‘famous’ or better worded ‘recognizable’ brand is Klipsch! And yes, we carry and install that brand of speakers as well.

What really makes a great speaker though?
Let’s count the (10) ways we love quality speakers!

10 Reasons To Love Quality Speakers

1 Speakers Amplify Audio

We love quality speakers because they bring sound to your home or business as authentic as possible.

Advanced technology and engineering techniques allow us to hear and pick up incredible low, high, soft and loud sounds through speakers. Gone are the days of low-quality squeaky speakers, and gone are those that sounded hollow, or worse, scratchy! Long live clear audio.

2 Speakers Can Make or Break the Room. We Love the Aesthetics

Speakers can be beautiful. There, we said it! Gone are the days of over-sized larger-than-life square boxes hanging on your wall. Today’s speakers are streamlined, compact, and aesthetics play a much more important role in overall customer satisfactory than years ago.

Customers are asking and buying aesthetically pleasing products to fit into their home decor.

3 Speakers Can Reach all Corners of Your Home, Business or Property!

The reach of wireless speakers is phenomenal. No matter where your system is located in your home or business, through wireless connections, speakers can be part of a large system and reach even the furtherest corners of your home, building and property.

4 Speaker Functionality Makes Us Love Them!

Functionality is key!

Speakers like Alexa connected to a home security system allow us to use voice-commands to create our very own smarthome! Not only are voice-activated systems convenient, in the days of Covid-19 this is also high desirable as there are now no germs to worry about or lingering on touch pads!

5 Integration With Other Systems Make Speakers Versatile

Speakers can be integrated with existing systems in your home. Home theater systems, security systems, smarthome systems – the possibilities are endless. To upgrade your systems, or make changes, changing out existing speaker can make a world of difference.

6 Speakers Will Play Your Music

Only by the time we got to #6 am we giving you ‘music‘ as a reason to love speakers! That’s pretty funny. Of course, music plays a huge role in speaker selection. However, by moving it to the middle of this article, we are demonstrating the many ways speakers can be utilized in your home.

7 Speakers Will Bring Your Movies To Life!

Theaters are well-loved not only for showing the movies on ‘the big screen’ but movie buffs love hearing the sounds and audio of the movies in that same larger-room setting. Getting the right speakers and installing them in your home theater, you can recreate that same sound and feeling, that same experience you’d have when watching a move in a real theater.

8 Speakers Will Bring Back Memories as Your Play Home Movies!

Have you ever played back home movies? Listening to grandpa’s voice when he was young, hearing the teenager speak as a child, listening to grandma read a book – she who’s just passed away. Speakers can bring back the sounds of memories. How powerful is that?

9 Speakers Will Broadcast Your Favorite Podcasts, Audiobooks and the News!

If you love to listen to stories, audiobooks, podcasts and yes, the news, having the right type of speaker will help you enjoy these daily habits even more! When selecting speakers, be sure to note the reason and use of your speakers to your trusted dealer so they can help you select the right speakers for the right type of use.

10 Speakers Will Bring Favorite TV Show Characters Into Your Home!

Last but not least, when watching TV shows on the big screen – your home theater screen, or your large smart TV – sound is most important to make that experience a memorable one. Bring characters to life by having the best speakers to broadcast your favorite shows.

Speaker Brands We Love, Install and Use Ourselves

We are a locally owned and operated small business. We have three children and we love home movies, music, TV shows and more. We also have an integrated security system and understand the value of good speakers. Come talk to us and we will share our experience with you! Our showroom in Murrells Inlet is open we will be more than happy to have you listen to some of your favorite tunes on our favorite speakers!

How To Get the Most for Your Ideal Home Theater Price

home theater pricing

Are You In The Market for a Home Theater?

Are you contemplating adding a home theater to your existing home, or are you building a home and want to have a home theater?

The first thing to do when looking for ideas is to do some in-person and online research.

We recommend sites like Pinterest and Houzz to get some ideas.

Before you can do your research though, about what is available, you need to know two things.

The first thing you need to do is set a budget.

Next…

Decide Where You Want To Install Your Home Theater

If you are contemplating adding a home theater to an existing home, you might need to get a contractor in to help you decide what is possible, especially if you are repurposing a previously unused space like a garage or unfinished attic.

However, if you are building a home, it is much easier to work with the current builder to get a room marked for home theater use – and add all the wiring during the building process!

This will save you money, for sure.

We at Strand Security help homeowners and builders with this often!

Feel free to reach out to us today!

What Do You Want to Do In Your Home Theater?

Of course, it is important to know what functionality your home theater has to have!

?Are you looking to entertain with music, maybe watch rock concerts and movies? You need the best audio system to enhance your viewing pleasure.

?Do you want to record your own music?

?Will you want to prepare and serve food and beverages in the home theater?

?How many people do you want to invite into your home theater? Will it be a small theater room or does it need to be large enough for a big crowd?

♟Do you need tables for board games, a jukebox, or room for darts?

home theater setup Myrtle Beach

What Equipment Do You Already Own to Put into a Home Theater?

You might already have an audio system, like our popular Sonos speakers.

If you have furniture that can be repurposed, that’s a great start.

Do you have a large TV that you want to relocate to the home theater? That will shave off some money of your overall ideal home theater price!

You will need to take a look at seating possibilities, table space, wall space and more.

What can I Expect To Pay; What is an Average Home Theater Price?

There is really no ‘average’ price!

You could get a room set up for as little as $500 if you have some of the components and equipment already.

Some people spend $10,000 or even $30,000 for a home theater. They might have a large, expensive home (read: mansion) and spending that much would make no sense for a cheaper home. While adding a home theater adds resale value to a home, you should by no means over-spend!

We can’t look in your wallet, so it is important for you to decide what you want to spend.

What do you think a fair home theater price is for your home?

How To Get the Most Bang for Your Buck and The Best Home Theater Price

  1. Make decisions about your future home theater before talking to a professional
  2. Ask for Professional help! Don’t go it alone, but hire someone who knows what they are doing!
  3. Home theaters are a great selling point if you ever need to sell your home. They made a solid investment.
  4. Consider adding a home theater to a new home you are building. It’s much cheaper doing this during construction.

How To Get The Best Theater Room Money Can Buy

best theater room

Are you in the market for a new home theater? Do you want the best theater room money can buy? Look no further. We have the answers you need, want and have been looking for!

Strand Security in the Myrtle Beach area services both Horry County and Georgetown County and we specialize in customized home theater rooms. Before you give Chuck a call at 843-318-6392 to set up a consult about your needs and wants, you need to know several things!

Here are the 5 steps you need to take to get the best home theater room money can buy!

1) Do Theater Room Design Research

Before you call us, or anyone, you need to have some ideas of the possibilities!
Ask your friends, go online, visit Houzz and Pinterest and use Google to find some neat ideas.

2) Complete Brand Research for your Theater Room

Next, do your brand research.

What brands do you trust, what do you like, what does each brand offer.

A good way to go about that is to check brand warranties and online reviews!

3) Take Stock of Reusable Furniture and Equipment

What do you already own in your home, that you will want in your home theater?

Is it seating, speakers, a large TV or surround sound system, or are you starting from scratch?

4) Take Measurements of the Future Theater Room

If you have your room ready to go, this is the right time take careful measurements. The size of the room will dictate the type of sound system you will need, the size and placement of your furniture and more. Make sure to note everything on paper, including the number of outlets, windows etc.

5) Set a Budget for Your New Theater Room

It’s important to set a budget for your home theater room. You’d be wasting a lot of time looking at brands and equipment if your budget is too small to afford it. If you don’t know what type of budget you need, make that your top priority question when you call a home theater expert!

Best to get that out of the way to make things clear – your budget should include line items for furniture, technical equipment, and installation fees.

3 Easy Ways To Add Value To Your New Home

3 easy ways to add value to your new home in Myrtle Beach and on the Grand Strand

Are You A Myrtle Beach Contractor or Builder?

If you are, or know someone who is, pay close attention.

Are You Looking to Purchase a New Home In Myrtle Beach?

If you are, or know someone who is, pay close attention.

Are You Building a New Home on the Grand Strand?

If you are, or know someone who is, play close attention.

The Myrtle Beach area, the Grand Strand, is booming!

New roads.

New neighborhoods.

New stores.

New banks.

New hospitals.

New schools.

New local attractions.

New hotels.

New restaurants.

You name it and someone, somewhere, on the Grand Strand is building it!

Isn’t it crazy to see the road construction and the building, the new neighborhoods, stores and restaurants just popping up all over the place?

Just the other day we were driving on Business 17 on the south end of Myrtle Beach near the airport, and what seemed like happened overnight (probably took a few weeks) another new Walmart Neighborhood Store popped up on a corner lot! Not really keeping count, but we can name at least five such stores that were built in the last year or so on the Grand Strand. That’s a LOT of new Walmart stores in one area… and area that already has several Super Walmart Stores!

Take it from Walmart – if they build new stores, that area is thriving and growing! 

Stores, schools and roads, oh my!

That’s all great, but who is moving to Myrtle Beach?

It seems everyone is!

What is There Not to Love About Myrtle Beach?

People move to the beach for

  • weather
  • cheap cost of living
  • cheap homes
  • low tax rates
  • join up with family
  • jobs
  • retirement
  • seasonal work
  • college

Whatever reason they come, most people stay and make Myrtle Beach their permanent home!

If You Are Building a New Home in Myrtle Beach, Pay Attention Here!

If you are investing in the Grand Strand area, by buying a new home or establishing a business, especially a new construction, we want you to get more bang for your buck.

We work with contractors, builders and home and business owners on a daily basis.

Here is what we learned: It pays to think and plan ahead!

Meaning; when building a home or a business building, it is a good idea to add wiring and pipes for certain add-on features you might, or might not, want at a later date.

Here are three adds-on features (we feel these aren’t really add-ons but we’ve learned they are) you might want to consider planning for BEFORE construction on your home or business building is complete!

These three features are

  1. Central Vacuum
  2. Security Wiring
  3. Home Theater

If you have any of these item on your ‘wish list’ for your new home let us tell you that adding these AFTER your construction is complete, you’ll also be adding more money to overall cost for these items!

Wiring for a security system or adding the central vacuum to your new home is MUCH EASIER and MUCH CHEAPER to do BEFORE the WALLS GO UP! That does make sense, right? The same holds true for the construction of a home theater! Getting the right wiring, the right outlets in the right place on the right wall makes it ‘done right’ the first time and saves you money down the road.

Last but not least let us mention that adding these ‘extra’ features adds immediate value to your new home!

Let Us Work With Your Builder!

We enjoy working with builders.

If you are in the midst of construction for a new home or business, come talk to us at our office in Murrells Inlet or call Chuck anytime at 843-318-6392. We prefer doing your installation before the walls are up, but certainly before the home is completely finished. It will save you money and that makes not just us happy, but it should make you happy as well!

How may we help you today?
