Our Customers Say

Rated 5 Stars!Great company. I called to update and activate the system in our 20 year old home. I wanted to get everything up and running as we were going out of town for an extended period. Lee was very helpful and came out right away to look at the job. We corresponded via email and phone to finalize my equipment selections. He always got back to me quickly with answers to my questions. He got us on the schedule prior to going out of town! (He even installed new signs as the old yard signs were really worn out and crumbling.)

The installer Ben did a great job explaining the system and the portal. He helped familiarize me with how to adjust the motion sensitivity on the cameras, etc. When Ben discovered that the panel needed to be upgraded to meet the needs of additional video equipment, he called the office and they upgraded the panel at no additional charge to me. Ben made recommendations on settings based on what our individual needs were and showed me how to adjust them if needed.

All in all it was a great experience dealing with Alarm Engineering. I have had security systems with various companies over the years in various houses and I find this one very user friendly and expandable. On a side note…while out of town we got an alert on our front porch. Turned out to be my pool tech and I was able to answer his questions via the doorbell camera. Great experience with AE.”

Did you know your security system can help with Energy Management at your home or business? Whether you want to save money on those rising energy bills or decrease your carbon footprint, Alarm Engineering can help you achieve your Energy Management goals.

The Benefits of Energy Management

Did you know your security system can help with Energy Management at your home or business? Whether you want to save money on those rising energy bills or decrease your carbon footprint, Alarm Engineering can help you achieve your Energy Management goals.

Heating Systems

  • Changing your thermostat even a couple of degrees can make a big difference – and when you’re not home, the thermostat should be set even lower.  Use Smart Schedule technology from Alarm Engineering to see a snapshot of your current energy needs and easily program your system by day and time. Not planning on being out? Set your alarm to away, and the thermostat will reset to a lower temperature automatically. Or, use your computer or smartphone to change the temperature in your home or office on-demand.
  • Trigger lighting to come on automatically when you enter a room – utilize your security motion detectors to help your pocketbook and the environment at the same time.
  • Be sure your heating system is properly maintained. Dirt in your heating system can restrict airflow and make your system work harder than it needs to. Proactive maintenance is much less expensive than running your system hard for little output or having your system go down.

Be Mindful

  • Kitchen or Bathroom fans take the heated air out of a room in an hour; don’t leave them running for any longer than is necessary. Get a timer switch instead of a manual one so you don’t have to remember to turn it off!
  • Most of the energy required to wash laundry is used in heating the water. With the availability of better cold water detergents, using cold water is easier than ever.
  • Clean or replace filters on air conditioners once a month or as recommended.
  • During the heating season, open drapes to let in the sun and close in the evening to keep out the chill. Draperies with insulated lining are effective, widely available and inexpensive.
  • During summer, keep the window coverings closed during the day to block the sun’s heat.
  • If you have a fireplace, keep the damper closed when you aren’t using it.
