Strand Security, Myrtle Beach Self Defense and Karate World of Surfside Beach are very excited to introduce you to the Myrtle Beach Fight Club for women and girls.

Myrtle Beach Fight Club

How did we get here?

Read on!

What is Myrtle Beach Self Defense?

Myrtle Beach Self Defense is a division of Strand Security, a locally owned and operated security company.

Launched in 2016 by Heather of Strand Security, Myrtle Beach Self Defense has taught self-defense classes for the last 2+ years in Horry and Georgetown Counties to women, men, boys, and girls of all ages.

Myrtle Beach Self Self Defense is a division of Strand Security and was started by Heather Bryant of Strand Security.

Read this to learn about why Heather is passionate about self-defense. (spoiler: Heather credits self-defense classes she took in high school as saving her life during an armed robbery)

What Has Myrtle Beach Self Defense Accomplished in Two Years?

Myrtle Beach Self Defense started classes at a local business facility, and after outgrowing that space, partnered with Karate World of Surfside Beach! Most self-defense classes now are taught at this facility, unless MBSD is asked to do a class at a social location.

Last year, MBSD conducted two self-defense classes at Coast Carolina University for a sorority, and we also held a class on location for a girl scout group.

We’ve partnered with the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce for a self-defense class for professionals in Myrtle Beach and the local senior citizen’s coalition. Self-defense classes can benefit young and old!

Who needs a self-defense class?

Partnering With Karate World in Surfside Beach, South Carolina

We partnered with Karate World in 2017 to bring more classes in a better learning environment for our community members.

We’ve been very happy to work with Master Jason and Carri in their Surfside Beach location.

Summer Series of Self Defense

This summer, we tried something new and exciting. We’ve just completed an 8-week summer series of self-defense.

As always, Strand Security customers can take self-defense classes free of charge!

We want to empower women and teenage girls by teaching them how to defend and fight. This club will teach their members more than traditional self-defense. Read this to get a feel for what you’ll be learning when you join us.

We’ve Been Teaching Women to Defend Themselves All Wrong

From the article

“When I started looking for a self-defense class, what I was really looking for was one that would teach me how to fight. I go on solo runs most mornings and often walk home alone in the dark from the Metro. If someone were to attack me, I wanted to know, could I take him?”

Protect Your Family With the Best Home Security

Is that a question, or a demand?

We know the truth! Of course, you want to protect your family with the best home security.

However, you might be searching the Myrtle Beach & Grand Strand area for

Whatever it is that is most important to you, know that we value the same things as we live right here on the Grand Strand ourselves and want to protect our family, just like you do.

We will work with you, your budget and your needs, always. 

What Does Your Home Need To Protect Your Family?

If you are a new homeowner, you’ll be (most likely) new to home security too.

Protecting your family goes beyond protection from a home invasion or burglary.

Here are additional sources of danger

  • Home Fires; prevention with fire alarms
  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning; prevent with CO alarms
  • Break-ins; Alert authorities instantly with monitoring services
  • Home Invasion; Identify and locate suspects with security cameras
  • Trespassing; Deter trespassers with automatic floodlights
  • Drowning; Alert homeowner to movement in the pool, or opening of a door to pool deck
  • Falling; Personal panic buttons can help an elderly person call for help when needed

What your home needs is up to you; consider your security company a valuable partner in selecting the right equipment to keep you and your loved ones safe!

What Does Your Family Want To Feel Safe?

Now that we know what you want, and what equipment is needed to keep your family safe – and to get the best home security for your family – let us look at what your family needs to make it all work!

Your spouse, teenager, babysitter, elderly parent, or child needs

  • easy access
  • easy to use equipment
  • panic buttons
  • monitoring service
  • voice commend
  • remote control

Right?

Many more families these days have multiple generations living or working together.

This means that multiple people will be using your security system and you will need the equipment you pick to be easy in use and access.  Most likely, you will want remote access to your cameras and system!

What Is The Best Type of Home Security For Your Family?

We can only answer this question of ‘What is the best type of home security for my family’ if you answer a few questions of your own first!

It all depends on these factors

  • What can you afford to spend on equipment (i.e. cameras, sensors)?
  • How much can you afford on monitoring services each month?
  • Will there be changes in your family size in the upcoming years? (look at least 3-5 years ahead)
  • Do you prefer working with a locally owned and operated business owner, or a large franchise?

We will be happy to help you figure out what your home needs, what your family wants and what you can afford! 

Can I Keep My Family Safe Without A Security System in Place?

We can’t guarantee it.

Why would you want to? Is saving a little bit of money each month worth not having peace of mind?

How much are you spending on health insurance, homeowners insurance, car maintenance, and your pension each month? Safety and security are clearly important to you if you pay those bills. 

Without a security system in place to keep those you love safe, be prepared for feelings of

  • fear
  • guilt
  • regret

Now, who wants to live like that?

What is Wireless Security?

Wireless security is exactly what it may sound like to you.

It’s a way to connect your security system in such a way that’s it is… wireless.

In a few simple words, a basic home wireless network means connecting an internet access point, such as a cable from your internet service provider, to a (wireless) router in order to allow multiple devices to connect to the network very quickly.

Now whether you live in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina or elsewhere, we are certain you have access to WiFi.

Using a wireless system, you can turn your home into a Smarthome!

Let’s explore why a wireless security system might be the best next step for your home or business.

Is Wireless Security Better Than Wired Security?

This is a loaded question, for sure!

Hardwired alarm systems may have an edge on reliability, while wireless systems provide a more streamlined installation and can be used in places where wired systems can’t.

“Wireless vs. wired security” refers to two different parts of the security system.

The network of sensors, plus the control panel, make up a self-contained system that may be wired or wireless. Then there’s also the way that this security system connects to the outside world; like sending alerts to a remote monitoring center or receiving commands from your cell phone.

If your home does not have a security system pre-installed, wireless systems can solve several problems. You won’t have to worry about drilling holes or other modifications, making wireless an more attractive option for renters, historic homes, or buildings with significant interior brick, stone or marble construction. Renters or homeowners who change residence will also be able to take advantage of the portability of most wireless systems-simply disconnect and reconnect at your new address.

Is A Wireless Security System Right for Me?

Let’s look at when a wireless security system might be what makes the most sense for you, making it the best choice for your home and business.

  • Renters or homeowners who change residence will be able to take advantage of the portability of most wireless systems-simply disconnect and reconnect at your new address.
  • Homes without a wired pre-installed security system; wireless systems can solve several problems including drilling holes and wiring issues.
  • Older homes and those with significant interior brick, stone or marble construction.

When Does a Wired Security System Make More Sense?

There are several situations when it makes more sense to have a wired system.

  • When absolute reliability is a must
  • Purchasing a home which is pre-wired for a security system makes installing a wired system extremely easy and often more economical

Your Local Security Company Can Best Advice You!

May we suggest you talk to your local security company and ask them to come out to speak with you regarding your security system options. Whether you decide on a hardwired system, or you are set on a wireless system, know that Strand Security of Murrells Inlet will stand with your decision and offer the best installation pricing and the best customer service at all times.

Install FLIR Security Cameras To Protect What is Yours!

Are You Aware of the Crime Rate In Your Town?

Whether you live in Myrtle Beach or elsewhere on the Grand Strand, in Horry County or Georgetown County, or somewhere else altogether, it is always a good idea to know crime stats for your neighborhood and the city you live in! Anyone who owns a home should protect that home and those who live in it.

We at Strand Security love Flir Security Cameras. It’s what we use to protect our own family!

As Myrtle Beach is on the list of America’s most dangerous cities, it is important to be aware of what continues to happen in our neighborhood, our city, our state!

NBC states:

It’s been one year and the Grand Strand continues to land on the list of America’s most dangerous.

According to Alarms.org, Myrtle Beach is the most crime-ridden city in the Palmetto State and 33rd most dangerous in the country. Its ranking is on par with other publications. Safewise.com ranks it as the 32nd most dangerous city. Another website, Neighborhood Scout, tabbed it the 13th most dangerous, saying you have a 1-in-60 chance of becoming a victim of a violent crime in Myrtle Beach.

Awareness is the first step to change and prevention!

How Can You Best Protect Your Loved Ones and Your Assets?

The best way to protect your loved ones, and your assets, from crime, is with knowledge!

Knowledge about:

  • crime rates
  • criminal activity in your neighborhood
  • crime prevention
  • security systems

Read. Learn. Stay Informed. Secure. Prevent.

All of these are action-verbs, meaning; to be inactive is to remain vulnerable to crime.

Take action today for the safety and security of those you love.

One easy way to start protecting whom and what you love best is with security cameras!

How Do Security Cameras Protect You?

Now, how do security cameras protect you and the ones you love?

“Security cameras help prevent a crime from happening in the first place – as security cameras are a huge deterrent to potential criminals – and if a crime does occur, the recordings can help police find, identify and arrest the perpetrator.”

In addition to crime prevention, we found a super helpful list of ways security cameras can help protect your home. This isn’t a complete list, but a great start to thinking about preventing accidents and crime at your home.

They include

  1. Monitor the perimeter of your property
  2. See who’s at the front door
  3. Nanny Cams for child protection
  4. Keep an eye on your garage
  5. Monitor points of entry to prevent theft
  6. Make your own video baby monitor
  7. Protect your home business
  8. Watch the pool and play areas from indoors
