Smarthome

The Latest Security Technology to Be Thankful For!

thankful for security technology

Happy Thanksgiving Week!

We want to wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving. No matter how different this year’s celebration looks due to the pandemic, if you are with family and healthy, you are lucky and blessed!

We are thankful for so many people in our business.

We are thankful for our staff and our suppliers, and we are thankful for you, our customer! As we come to the end of a year-long celebration of our 10th anniversary, we are so very grateful for the ability to continue to serve the Grand Strand community of South Carolina and keep residents in Horry County and Georgetown County safe and secure!

Today, let’s look at some of the latest security technology we are grateful for during this crazy 2020 year.

Smarthome Technology

We love our URC smarthome technology. We have installed numerous systems like this during this past year in the Myrtle Beach area, on the Grand Strand in both homes as well as commercial locations.

The possibilities are endless with URC technology and we are grateful to be able to help solve problems for our clients with this amazing system and related products.

Learn more about URC here.

Remote Access To Your Home Security System

If nothing else, we’ve all learned to “let go” this year! Many of us have had to go to work and leave teenagers and kids at home for remote schooling whether they we ready for this, or not. Some of us have elderly relatives who are at home in self-imposed isolation to stay safe from COVID-19 and because of all this, how thankful we are for remote access to our home security cameras and systems!

No matter where you need to be, the ones that are left at home can be reached in an instant with remote access to your home security system, how comforting is that as a parent or caregiver?

Voice Activation

Last but not least, now that we know through science how germs are spread, using voice activation to control your home, your smarthome, gives you an added buffer of security and safety against an invisible enemy, COVID-19.

No more touching and retouching light switches, curtains, temperature controls, garage door openers, windows, locks, sound systems, home theater controls… With URC smarthome technology everything can be controlled by voice and thus by default becomes touch-free and germ-free!

We are thankful to be able to offer this to our Strand Security customers, both homeowners and families, as well as our commercial customers like restaurants and Grand Strand business owners who need a new way to keep customers and staff safe!

Strand Security

We Are Thankful For Our Grand Strand Community

We wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but here! We don’t just work on the Grand Strand , we live here, too. We are thankful to be surrounded by businesses who, like us, care about their customers’ safety and security, and we are glad to be working on several URC integration projects right now to give those businesses that added buffer of safety.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Strand Security to you and yours!

The Best Controlled Smarthomes Use URC Technology

URC Total Control

What is a Smarthome?

Smarthomes are homes with brains.

They ‘think’ and take action on your behalf. Of course, unlike human brains, the brains of a smarthome consist of a powerful computer system of sorts.

Smarthomes make your life easier.

Almost any recurring task in your home can be automated without you touching anything!

Think about all the daily, weekly recurring tasks you perform.

  1. Locking and unlocking doors and windows
  2. Garage door – open and closing
  3. Thermostat and temperature regulation
  4. Window shades
  5. Turning lights on and off
  6. Alarm system activation and deactivation
  7. Music, video streaming and home theater
  8. Your morning brew…!

The possibilities are endless, really endless.

However, here is the truth: all smarthomes and all smarthome technology is not create equal!

Any smarthome is only as ‘smart’ as its brains, of course.

We at Strand Security in Murrells Inlet serve both Horry County and Georgetown County and have been installing smarthome technology in Grand Strand homes for years. We customize each home to the owners liking and needs.

Everything You Need To Know About Ring Cameras

Population Growth In the Myrtle Beach Area

Are you considering buying a Ring Camera?

If you live on the Grand Strand, you know the growth of our community. Thousands upon thousands move to our area each year and new homes are popping out of the ground like mushrooms.

New neighborhoods seem to arise overnight as builders churn out new homes near our beautiful South Carolina coast.

With new people and a larger population comes more crimes and more home burglaries and invasions. Criminal activity goes up as communities grow as there is more opportunity to steal and more potential victims available.

Residents might choose a DIY home security system or a professionally installed system to keep their loved ones and their property save; many residents choose to enhance their systems with Ring Cameras

Home Security Systems for Grand Strand Residents

While we knock anything DIY, there is so much to know about installing cameras that we highly recommend extensive research, or hiring professionals like Strand Security.

We have over 25 years of experience installing home security systems and we get the job done fast, and right the first time! 😉

Things to remember when installing your own cameras would include

  • location
  • angle of camera
  • light source
  • nearby landscaping
  • and more

What is a Ring Camera?

Ring Cameras can be purchased as a stand-alone product from just about anywhere online.
They’ve gained popularity among DIY-ers and home improvement communities as an easy way to keep tabs on what’s going on at home when you are not there.

One of the best places to install a Ring Camera is at your front door.

This YouTube video shows front-porch thieves stealing packages and breaking in.

Ring Camera Options Include Indoor Cameras!

While the ‘most well-known’ Ring Camera is the one people have installed at the front door, there are several Ring Cameras on the market! Strand Security is happy to help you choose the right cameras for your home, your security, your needs. You can stop by in Murrells Inlet for a visit to check out the Ring Camera options and models, including:

  1. Indoor Ring Camera
  2. Stick Up Ring Camera
  3. Spotlight Ring Camera
  4. Floodlight Ring Camera

Ring Camera Installation

While we highly recommend you purchase your Ring Cameras from a reputable Ring Camera Dealer, we also recognize that not everyone will want to go that route. You might find an online sale or might have received a Ring Camera as a gift.

The good news is that Strand Security can and will install your Ring Cameras should you need assistance. We serve Horry County residents as well as Georgetown County residents and will be happy to come your way to set up your Ring Camera System for you.

Give us a call today and let’s get your home and your family secured!

Homeschooling in a Smarthome is the Smart Choice for Parents

smarthome homeschooling with technology

Homeschooling at the best of times can be a challenge but usually is a personal choice; homeschooling during a pandemic, or forced homeschooling as some will feel it is really challenging. As schools in Horry County and Georgetown County are back in session, many parents have already chosen to keep their kids home! 

If that’s you, why not make being home just a bit easier by investing in Smarthome technology.

But what is a Smarthome?

Check out our blog 10 Reasons to Love Smart Homes if you aren’t sure what’s so great about smarthomes!

When you hear the word ‘Smarthome’ you might imagine a home that has ever available technology available to take the day to day tasks out of the hands of the homeowner. From smart doorbells, talking fridges and smart thermostats to voice assistants who welcome you home.

Sounds expensive, and it can be, however, you don’t have to go all in. “At its very core, a smart home is probably best defined as a living area connected to technology meant to enhance the home”. 

We at Strand Security love URC. Check out how we help our customers on the Grand Strand.

Meaning that by a Smarthome can be a combination of devices or just have one. The trick is to find the devices that will benefit your home and your family.

Smart Speakers for Homework Help

With homeschooling becoming the norm and the kitchen becoming the classroom,  a smart speaker provides a virtual classroom assistant enabling both parents and children to find answers to questions that would usually take time to find out. 

Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant are the popular smart speakers nowadays in your homeschool classroom which can not only enable your kids to access enormous amounts of information just by asking a question, but can also;

  • Keep them on track – using the timer function to keep them focused
  • Enhance their communication – smart speakers are not perfect and sometimes a question has to be rephrased to get the correct answer (how many times have you heard ‘I’m sorry, I did not understand the question’!!!)
  •  Help the parents check the kids’ answers (school was a looooong time ago!)

Security System To Keep Kids Who are Home Alone Safe

Smarthome technology integrates with your security system, allowing your peace of mind if you need to leave your teens or preteen unattended for a while during the day.

You might find yourself needing to check in at work, or taking a trip to the grocery store.

Not sure if your child is ready to be left home alone? Check this article! 

And remember – if you activate the security alarm system, help is close by is an emergency arrises.

An additional perk to smarthomes: not only are they safer, they are healthier! Smarthome means hands-free and in the age of COVID-19, that’s just plain smart!

Remote Monitoring of Your Teenagers and Schoolwork

You’ve got the kids to sit down, you managed to get them to open their books but now you have to go to your home office to do your work. But how do you know that the kids are actually doing their school work?

Getting up to check that they are working the books is going to break into your work time not to mention breaking your concentration so investing in remote monitoring is a good option.

Enter security cameras and remote access!

With this smarthome technology your kids aren’t just safe, they can be monitored in real time by a live camera feed fed to you on your device of choice!

How about that for hall monitor?!

Homeschooling and Smarthomes Sets Your Family Up For Success!

Homeschooling is looking to be something that will continue for a while and as learning ‘at the kitchen table’ continues, why not make your family’s life easier (and less shouty) by investing in smarthome technology – gotta go, the fridge is talking to me!

What Are The Best Wireless Security Cameras?

wireless security cameras

Home Security Mandates Security Cameras!

Say what?

Yes, it’s 2020 friends, and we do not think your home security system is complete without at least a few security cameras!

We are not saying you need to go all-out and include a camera in every room and on every corner of your home on the outside, but we do highly recommend your security system utilizes the use of (wireless) security cameras.

Whether you live on the Grand Strand like we do, elsewhere in Horry County or Georgetown County, or somewhere in South Carolina; we recommend you do research into how cameras can help protect your family and loved ones.

Your security is our business, and our highest priority!

What Are The Advantages of Wireless Security Cameras?

We agree with this expert that wireless security cameras are a great option because they are fairly easy to install and upload video to the cloud or a local storage drive.

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Choose wired security cameras if you want the most reliable connection option where you don’t have to worry about any dropped signals or connectivity issues.

Choose wireless security cameras if you have a strong Wi-Fi network and need easier installation than you’d get with a wired camera.

Choose wire-free security cameras if you have a strong wireless network, and if you need the easiest and fasted installation. More on this further down in this article!

Ring Security Camera

Recommended Wireless Security Camera Brands!

At Strand Security we only work with the brands we know, like and trust!

For security cameras, that includes the following brands!

  • Dahua
  • HikVision
  • Ring

Security Cameras and Smarthome Integration!

If you home is not a smarthome yet, what are you waiting for?

Security cameras can easily be integrated so that you can see what is happening in-real-time while away from the premises, whether that is your home – during a summer vacation or forced hurricane evacuation – or your business location!

Who Needs Security Cameras?

W recommend residential homes have security cameras, as well as all commercial buildings, including but not limited to:

🔥 schools
🔥 churches
🔥 gasstations
🔥 bars
🔥 nightclubs
🔥 office buildings
🔥 retail locations
🔥 hospitals
and more!

Strand Security Sells and Installs Thermal Imaging Cameras

Does Your Home Need A Security and Safety Tune Up?

home audit security and safety

Conduct a Home Audit To Get a Security and Safety Tune Up!

How secure and safe is your home for your elderly relatives, your teenagers, your baby or your pets?

If you aren’t sure what to answer, maybe it’s time for a home audit!

An audit is an official inspection.

To conduct a home audit for security and safety means conducting a thorough check up on the overall security and safety of the inside and outside of your home, identifying any problem areas to address.

Have you ever done a home audit?

This article will tell you how to do a home audit for security and safety.

Weekend Project To Make Your Home More Secure!

Are you ready to make your home more secure?

Here is how to do your audit.

  1. Create a spreadsheet, or use a clipboard with paper to document your findings.
  2. Find a partner to help you!
  3. Divide your home in sections.
  4. Start from the bottom and go up, or start at the top and go down, or start on the inside and go out.
  5. Check for possible security issues; check windows latches, deadbolts and locks, hatches, screens. Push, pull and pretend to break-in to your own home!
  6. Check the location of your security cameras if you have any, and look for blindspots.
  7. If you do not have security cameras, note what areas in your home you might need them installed.
  8. Test your home security system.
  9. At night, check all lights and sensors.
  10. Outdoors, check the entrance to garage and position of bushes and trees near the home that could be used as hiding spots
  11. Check your outdoor shed, and any equipment. Is it secure?

With the findings of this audit, make a plan to update or replace broken locks, replace burnt out light bulbs, adjust sensors and talk to an expert about security cameras.

Weekend Project to Make Your Home Safer!

The same way you conducted a home audit for security, you can conduct a home audit for safety.

Get started the same way with either  a spreadsheet or a clipboard with paper to document your findings.

Then do this:

  1. Find a partner to help you!
  2. Divide your home in sections.
  3. Start from the bottom and go up, the top and go down, or the inside and go out.
  4. Look at your home from the perspective of being elderly and less-mobile, a teenager, or a crawling baby.
  5. Check for possible safety issues; sharp objects, fire hazards and places someone could trip and fall.
  6. Test smoke detectors and CO detectors.
  7. Make an appointment to have your chimney swept.
  8. Kitchen are often a safety hazard! Check for a fire extinguisher.
  9. Check your home for things left out that could pose a safety risk to elderly family members, teenagers, small kids and pets: matches, knives, guns, cleaning agents, prescription drugs, alcohol, poison and more. Note the location of these items!
  10. If you have a pool, make sure all gates lock securely and you have a pool alarm that works.

NOTE: This is not a complete list. Be a home detective and really look around for falling and tripping hazards and bend down and look up for things that could be hiding in plain sight.

Make a list or repairs and spend a weekend completing them.

Implement Changes and Be Safe and Secure in Your Home

While small changes are just that, small changes to your home for security and safety reason could end up saving your life of that of a person in your family.

You never know what might happen!

Home Safety and security first!

Let us know if you need help with securing your home.
We install alarm systems, security cameras and complete smarthome systems to help you keep those you love safe.

How To Attain a Germ-Free Smarthome in the Post COVID-19 World

germ-free smarthome

Smarthomes Can Be Touch-Free Homes

Kids touch everything.

It’s just how they are.

They touch their face, their mouth, their eyes, pets, food, and any surface they come in contact with at home, at school and on-the-go!

In the age of COVID-19 and the coronavirus pandemic, touching means possibly coming in contact with COVID-19 germs. While social distancing measures certainly have helped the spread of this virus, it’s hard to know exactly when and where you are most exposed to germs.

There is one place you are safe. Once you’ve quarantined your family for at least two weeks, you can be assured the coronavirus is not in your home.

As the country is looking for ways to reopen and restart our economy, we are all looking for ways to touch less surfaces and stay germ-free as much as possible

Voice Activation Means Germ-Free Automation!

Smarthomes with voice activation is your solution to keeping you and your loved ones safe.

Not having to touch multiple surfaces will eliminate close contact with those who might visit your home as the country is opening back  up again.

Whether you install voice-activation at home or in your business, it is the best tool in your arsenal against spreading germs.

URC Smarthome Technology: Touch-Free and Germ-Free Technology

At Strand Security, we trust URC to do the job for us. URC is fully-integrated and gives your whole house automation and control!

URC can

  •  alarm your home
  • monitor your cameras

and so much more.

10 Reasons to Love a Home Theater

reasons to love a home theater

Home is Where We Are Quarantined!

As we write and publish this, South Carolina’s Governor McMaster has extended a state of emergency declaration and lockdown order until April 27, 2020.

South Carolinians are expected to stay home, quarantined, and only leave their homes to go out for essential services.

While this order is in effect in South Carolina, 97% of the USA in under the same or similar order, essentially keeping 80+ million kids at home instead of in school.

Home is where we are quarantined. How are you staying entertained?

Home Entertainment Is How We Stay Sane in Times of Uncertainty

We just saw a scary meme on Facebook!

coronavirus meme

While this is sort of funny, aren’t you at least glad it 2020 and we have home computers, smartphones, unlimited data plans, the internet and streaming services, right?!

While this article is the 4th in a series of 12 articles*, this title struck a cord this month, as we are reliant on home entertainment as we are ‘stuck’ at home.

Don’t you wish you had a home theater already?

Here are…

10 Reasons To Love Your Own Home Theater Now More Than Ever!

1) Old Home Movies

Old home movies will provide hours of entertainment. Why watch them on a small tv, or worse, on your hand-held devices? Instead, watch them on the big screen, with your family! Project them, use a smartTV or HTMI cable to watch your old movies in your own home theater!

2) Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime or Disney on the Big Screen

Sights and sounds; we Americans like everything big! Movie theaters are well-loved in this country and those who can, love to watch streaming services on the big screen as well.  A home theater allows you to do just that; it’s an excellent way to show tv shows and movies on the big screen, with surround sound!

3) YouTube Streamed to your TV!

Did you know that YouTube is the second largest search engine? YouTube videos are watched my millions of people per hour; watching YouTube videos on a big screen is an amazing experience. What is your favorite channel?

4) Family Movies

Classic movies like Mary Poppins, the Lion King or The Princes Bride; they are bigger, better and offer more family fun when watched in a home theater! Invite the cousins (after the lockdown is over, of course), friends or host a sleepover birthday party in your own home theater.

5) Date Night at Home

Not all parents with babies or small children want to hire babysitters for a date night. If you have your own home theater, you can stay in while going on a date, any time the mood strikes! BYOPopcorn and have that glass of wine or a beer; no need to drive home.

6) Family Gaming

Wii, PS4, Xbox – no matter your choice of gaming system, a home theater makes the gaming experience more real and life-like. A home theater also affords you more room to spread out and play – and offers a dedicated space for gaming where you could keep an eye on the kids!

7) Karaoke Parties

Challenge your kids to a Karaoke sing off! It’s a great way to expend some energy for the whole family and you’ll likely be surprised by the song choices your family member make. A home theater will make everyone sound better!

8) Live Sport Events

While there are no live sporting events to watch during this pandemic, rewatching some classic games, some of the best finals, races and events can be a fun way to spend an evening. Once sports are back... you’ll be glad for that home theater! Trust us when we ay that with the right speakers, it will sound like the sports commentator is sitting next to you!

9) Concerts at Home

If you love concerts; whether it is pop concerts, country music or The Boston Pops, concerts sound and look better with surround sound on a big screen. Bonus; you can belt out the songs as loud as you want, without bothering anyone.

10) Video Chats with Family

Seeing grandma or Uncle Harry on the big screen is the next best thing to hugging them in real life! Instead of facetiming on your small device, bring them into your home theater!

BONUS) Church Services

While this is a completely new phenomenon, we did want to mention it here as were are on a continued lockdown and stay home order! Almost all churches have gone virtual with their church services. Why not watch church in your home theater! What a beautiful experience that might turn out to be.

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Serious Side Note:

We are well aware that some people do have to work during this time! Strand Security is in fact, deemed an essential business, we are here, ready to serve our customers! We also want to thank medical staff, support staff and all other essential workers for their sacrifice to keeping our country running.

10 Reasons To Love Smarthomes

smarthome Alexa Google Home

This post is the second in a year-long series of ’10 reasons to love…’ as Strand Security celebrates 10 years in business.

10 Reasons to Love the Grand Strand

What is a Smarthome?

A Smarthome is

a residence equipped with a number of devices that automate tasks normally handled by humans. Some are built into the structure itself and some added later, and homeowners operate them with voice commands or by artificial intelligence.

What Can a Smarthome Do?

A smarthome

uses internet-connected devices to enable the remote monitoring and management of appliances and systems, such as lighting and heating.

That is just the tip of the iceberg, though.

New uses, new brands, and more integrations are available every day!

Our homes are getting smarter.

10 Reasons To Love Smarthomes

While new Smarthomes are created every day, not everyone fully understands what a Smarthome can do and how it can affect daily life.

Therefore, we’ve come up with 10 reasons to love Smarthomes.

1) Smarthomes Are Brilliant

Of course, they are brilliant. Their name says it all.

This home can think and has a brain that functions to communicate with the homeowners. If that’s not brilliant, we don’t know what is!

2) Smarthomes Are Convenient

While we won’t go as far as calling people lazy, Smarthomes offer convenience to those who crave it. With just one button, one switch or one command, the homeowner can engage the home to auto-work for them.

3) We Love Smarthomes Due To Endless Integration Possibilities

Smarthome technology integrates with hundreds, if not thousands of brands. URC integrates with 100’s of brands, many brands that we offer and recommend to our customers here at Strand Security

4) We Love Smarthome Automation

Automation means that once you set something up once, that ‘action’ is remembered and can be triggered at any time by a commend. Automation means that when you get home, you can, for example, tell your home ‘I am home’ and that would trigger any automation you’ve programmed – drawing shades, changing the thermostat, locking the doors behind you etc.

5) Smarthomes Save Us Time

By virtue of automation and integration, we all save time; the Smarthome does the thinking as well as the execution.

6) Smarthomes Eliminate Redundancy

Never again draw the shades. Never again have to touch a light switch. Never again have to lock (or forget to lock) the door behind you. Set it up once and it’s done!

7) Smarthomes Help Those Who Are Less Able-bodied

If you or someone you love lives with a disability, or is elderly and not active, having a Smarthome can be a gamechanger to being independent! Especially if that person has limited physical ability.

8) Smarthomes Make Our Homes More Energy Efficient

By automating lights, thermostats, and window shades, your home becomes energy efficient. You will save money on your electric bill just by being smart!

9) Smarthomes Give Our Home a Personality

Your home might be quirky, or stern, or persistent. If you set your automation right, your home will have a personality!

10) Smarthomes Allow Us To Control Our Home With Just One Remote

The best part of having a Smarthome besides ‘peace of mind’ is the ability to control your home from one remote! No more TV controls, thermostats controls, light switches and keys… One remote can do EVERYTHING for you.
