You Can Thank Your Lucky Stars Or Hire The Best Security Company

How Lucky Do You Feel?

Accidents and attacks happen in mere seconds. People get mugged, attacked, and robbed daily. Businesses get vandalized and their employees robbed and you might never have known about it unless it made the news.

Within precious seconds, or even in the blink of an eye, something can happen to you or a loved one that will alter the rest of your life.

How well you are prepared often dictates the outcome!

The more prepared you are for the potential of a natural disaster, personal attack, accident, home invasion, fire or another emergency, the better off you are.

Leaving it all “to chance” is one sure way to set yourself and your loved ones up for failure and a negative outcome.

What Are Your Family’s First Demands For The Best Home Security?

best home security Myrtle Beach

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!

panic button Myrtle Beach

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!

Click here to read more about multiple generations & home security!

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?

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

#1 Work with a local, locally owned security company. We can not stress the importance of this enough!
#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.

Here are the five questions you need to ask yourself!

Grab a piece of paper and start writing down answers, then give us a call!

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.

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

3 reasons to be thankful for your security system

What Are You Thankful For?

We have seen this question asked all month as it’s November.  Many people practice #ThankfulNovember or #30daysofthankfulness on social media, sharing small and large things, places and people they are thankful for each day!

We are so lucky to live in beautiful Myrtle Beach! We are lucky to live near the beach, have gorgeous weather most of the year and live a bountiful life lived in short, t-shirt and flip-flops!

What about you? What are you thankful for?

  • Are you thankful for your health?
  • Are you thankful for your home?
  • Are you thankful for your job?
  • Are you thankful for your family?

There are many people in this world who do not have basic necessities such as access to clean drinking water, food and a roof over their head. There are many people in this world who live in areas of unrest and war; we are so lucky to live in a place in this world with access to all of these things.

If you are lucky enough to live in a safe and secure home with an alarm system like we do, isn’t it time to list some of the reasons it makes you thankful?

We have come up with 3 reasons to be thankful for your security system. Read and let us know if you feel the same way!

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.

We are thankful that our security system deters crime our our business!

Your Security System Gives You Overall Peace of Mind

We are thankful that our security system gives us overall peace of mind!

Locking Up At Night; What You Need To Know Right Now

Home Safety Tips for Families! Locking up at night.

Home Safety Tips For Families

If you are a parent, there comes a time in your life when your teenager(s) comes and goes without you – this often happens once they get their driver’s license and start driving themselves!

(If you have younger children – rejoice you’re not there, yet.)

Once teenagers get a taste of this independence, they come and go at odd times, often working after school, playing sports or meeting with friends for fun or schoolwork.

When the kids are younger, parents are in charge of locking up at night.

 

Locking up the home.

Setting the alarm.

Locking up the cars.

Locking the garage door.

 

However, when you add teenager(s) to the mix, and their ability to forget everything your tell them in about 5 seconds…

Now is a great time to set up a few safety rules for your family’s overall safety and security; call a family meeting!

Evening routine of locking up your home at night. Safety and security tip! Myrtle Beach

Who Is Responsible For Locking Up At Night?

Who will lock up at night?

Before you can make that determination, you need a family meeting and a family calendar.

Once you know everyone’s schedule you will know who will come home last and should at least close and lock up the garage.

Don’t forget to include a discussion about locking up the house and setting the security alarm each time they come and go, during the day or night. Teenagers can and should shoulder that responsibility along with you. If they arrive home to an unarmed home, their security and safety is at risk. Always teach your children how to arm the home before leaving and how to disarm it once coming home. They should also know how to speak to the operator of the monitoring company in case they set off a false alarm.

Two more things to discuss with teens about home security.

  1. Don’t leave your home key laying around anywhere. If you lose your key, it will cost a lot of money to change the locks.
  2. Don’t give your alarm code to any friends. Never, under any circumstance.

How Should You Lock Up At Night?

For your family’s safety and security, you need to do a perimeter check every evening.

This includes checking all entry and exit points, making sure windows and doors are not just closed, but locked as well. Don’t forget your glass sliding doors, your porch doors and your garage doors.

We also recommend checking your children’s windows to make sure they are still locked as sometimes kids play with those locks and unless you check, you’d never know whether they have stayed locked, or have been unintentionally unlocked.

Once the indoor perimeter check is done, arm your home.

Even if not all your family members are home yet, it’s a great habit to get into; to arm the system even when you are home, and especially at night.

It Is Better To be Safe (at Home), Than Sorry (A Criminal Made It Into Your House).

If you’ve purchased an alarm system, have paid for installation and are paying a monthly monitoring fee, why NOT use the system to keep your loved ones safe and sound at home, right?

It’s just plain smart!

You’d be surprised how many homeowners fail to set their alarm systems on a daily basis.

Don’t be caught unaware!

Be safe and secure at home, always!

Spring Clean With Caution; Secure Your Home!

Keep your home secure whiel doing your spring cleaning

What Does Security Have To Do With Spring Cleaning?

It’s April and the weather is gorgeous here in Myrtle Beach.

Warm but not hot.

Balmy but not sticky.

Sunny but not scorching.

What is a homeowner to do? Spring clean, of course.  This is the perfect time to clean your porches off.This is the perfect time to get rid of the last of the yellow pine pollen.This is the perfect time to dust off your outdoor furniture and hose off the car(s)! It’s a great time to be outside and get a few ‘chores’ done before South Carolina summer weather moves in.

If you aren’t much into spring cleaning yourself, chances are you have someone come to your home to do some power washing and landscaping to make your home look presentable after the long winter.

When you hire contractors to come do work at your home, caution and due diligence is required to make sure your home stays safe and secure long after they’ve left.

Here Are 5 Ways Your Security Can Be Compromised When Spring Cleaning

You are ready to clean your home and property, especially now that the wether is better and the pine pollen is done.

Wait!

Before you spring clean, please read these five ways your security can be compromised. Then go ahead and proceed with cleaning, and with caution.

Awareness is the biggest prevention of crimes!

Spring Clean with Caution - secure your home

1) Unlocked Windows and Doors After Cleaning

If you, or someone you hire cleans your windows this spring, make sure to go and re-lock every single window, especially if it’s a professional window washer you’ve hired and if you did the windows on the inside as well as the outside. The same goes for your garage and backdoors – anytime you’ve had contractors to your home, re-check your doors for unlocked doors.

2) Unplugged Lights

Security lights can and may be unplugged when someone is working on your home. Do a quick walk-around at the end of each work day after contractors have been to your home.

3) Disabled Cameras or Floodlights After Power-washing

An experienced power-washing company should not disable cameras or flood lights, but… sometimes we hire cheap labor instead of qualified labor. (We aren’t here to judge you, just caution you!) Please check your cameras and your floodlight positions after power-washing your home.

4) Spring Yard Sale Can Be A Burglary Preview

We get that you want to clear your home of clutter. We get that you want to make some extra cash after your spring cleaning is all done with. When holding a yard sale, please cover/remove/lock up other valuables you aren’t selling, away from sight! The last thing you want is to make $50 on a yard sale only to have a criminal come back and steal your nice set of expensive golf clubs (or car, tools etc.) out of your garage that they saw when they visited your yard sale!

5) Contractors Come To Your Neighbors House Too!

Anytime you have someone come to your home, you are inviting a stranger in. Don’t assume just because someone works for a reputable company, you are safe. Don’t offer them a closer look into your home if it’s not necessary. Don’t offer them a sneak peek of your garage inventory. We suggest keeping your garage door closed and valuables out of sight. This makes sense at all times, but especially when you schedule maintenance on your home. Don’t forget these are good habits to have at all time because even if YOU don’t have anyone visiting your home, your neighbor might. Those contractors also have a great view of your home…!


If you have questions about your cameras, need a security system, want Smarthome technology or want to talk to us about your home or business security, don’t hesitate to call us!

5 Reasons To Never Install A Security System

5 reasons to never install a security system in Myrtle Beach

Are You Wondering (and Researching) Whether You Need a Security System for Your Home or Business?

Stop. Wonder no more! Research no more!

You’ve found it! The answer to many of your questions and the place to ask more questions. We are right here in the Myrtle Beach area. We are local and we have the answers to your security questions!

For your convenience, we have compiled a list of 5 reasons you might have never thought of! These are 5 reasons you do NOT need a security system! How cool is that?

We know that many (new) home owners struggle with this issue – to install or not to install and we decided to make this easy on you. Just check off any of the reasons and if even just one applies, don’t get an alarm system for you home or business.


1) You Don’t Care About Your Stuff

Everything you own can be replaced, including your antiques and heirlooms. It doesn’t matter how much you’ve worked for it, or how much money you spent on it, or who gave it to you – you are perfectly willing to part with any and all items in your home. Whether you lose them because of a home invasion, a burglary or a fire, you are good!

2) You Love Working With Your Home Owners Insurance On Claims

You don’t mind dealing with your home owners insurance to try to replace stolen valuables and broken windows, locks and doors. You don’t mind having to pay your deductible out-of-pocket and you honestly don’t mind spending hours arguing with your insurance over claims.

3) You Carry A Weapon On You Everywhere, Including in Your Home

You have a concealed weapon’s permit and you carry your weapon on you at all times, wherever you go, even in your home. You carry it on you and even when you sleep it’s on your person. You have it loaded – ready to use even in the dark of night. You don’t need a security alarm to sound if an intruder where to enter your home. You sleep on one ear for the very reason!

4) You Trust Everyone Who Works for You

You trust every single employee you hire right from day one; you trust them with merchandise, your customers and your money. Without training your staff, you just know they will do right by you and your company. You also know they would never (unintentionally) leave a door or window unlocked when they lock up for the night because you know they care as much about your business as you do!

5) You Never Ever Go on Vacation or a Weekend Trip

You are home every night of every week of every year and you just never leave your home unattended at night. Why would you ever leave? You work from home so your home is never unattended. How cool is that? Grocery trips and shopping trips to the mall are short and sweet because you know, your home needs you!
