Our Customers Say

Rated 5 stars on Google!“Exceptional service! Alarm Engineering has been my electronic security provider for the past eight years. Over the years, I’ve come to expect nothing less than exceptional service from Alarm Engineering and Lee Smith, one of the company’s System Specialists…and they never disappoint; in fact, they always “exceed” my expectations. Recently, Alarm Engineering upgraded my existing electronic security system. Again, Lee coordinated every aspect of this project in a timely, efficient manner. In addition, the service technicians Stephen, George, and Gavin that Lee sent to install the upgrade were phenomenal. They all were extremely knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and conscientious. As these professionals worked diligently to complete the project as quickly as possible, they were never too busy in the process to pause to answer all my basic questions or to provide me with further instructions on how to operate key features of the newly integrated system. Thank you everyone for exceeding my expectations once again!”

Using the 5 D's of Home Security, here are some ways to achieve both increased security and beautiful, friendly curb appeal.

Secure Your Yard with the 5D’s of Home Security

For many homeowners, the front yard is a challenging area to keep secure.

By design, the front yard is a semi-public area between your home and the street. If you’re like most of us, you care about your home’s curb appeal and aren’t interested in extreme security measures, but there still are discreet steps you can take to make your front yard and ultimately your home more secure.

Using the 5 D’s of Home Security, here are some ways to achieve both increased security and friendly curb appeal.

Deter

  • A professionally monitored smart home security system is perhaps the most powerful deterrent of all, and well-placed new yard signs are a great way to announce your security system. Do you need new yard signs or decals for windows? Let us know here, replacements are always free.
  • While most of its technology will reside in your home, several elements will be noticeable from the outside. These include outdoor video camerasor a video doorbell—and smart locks for your doors. 
  • After dark, lighting is an excellent deterrent. Focus on a few key areas for lighting: your front door and porch, plus any potential hiding places in your hard.
  • Motion activated smart lighting, with its power to suddenly and startlingly put an intruder in the spotlight, is best of all. Smart lights are easy to have installed on your front porch and around your whole property as part of a smart home security system, which can also schedule the lights to turn on automatically at sunset.

Detect 

  • Your monitored security system is an important part of the detection of people up to no good. 
  • Video cameras integrated into your security system are excellent detection devices as well. You can get a video clip sent right to your smartphone or peek in at any time. With recording on the cloud, there’s no worries about a bad guy destroying the DVR evidence in your home. You might be able to save on your video upgrade with our Customer Loyalty Rewards.

Deny

  • Nothing radiates curb appeal like a traditional, white picket fence. Yet, it’s also a signal that says, loud and clear: “My property starts here.”
  • Gates are easily climbed. However, bad guys typically go for the easiest target and don’t want to be seen climbing or even jumping a fence. They’ll also be aware that they’ll look suspicious on the other side, and that the slatted design of the fence leaves nowhere to hide from passers-by.

Delay

  • A clear, well-maintained path to your front door—ideally bordered with shrubs or flowers—sends a message to stay on the path.
  • It’s an example of ‘natural access control,’ where landscaping is used not to physically block people, but to subtly discourage certain behavior. Look at the front of any public building and you’ll see it in action.
  • Another effective technique is to strategically plant roses, hawthorns and other thorny shrubs around ground-floor windows. Again, this won’t keep out a determined intruder, but it will discourage an opportunistic one from peering into your home. Plus, those roses will complement your picket fence.

Defend

  • Sometimes referred to as the response layer, this is where the police come in, notified by your 24/7 monitored security system – they catch the bad guys (or more often, run them off).
  • Make sure your monitored security system is working flawlessly by testing your system regularly.

Video is Burglar’s Kryptonite

“Makers of movies and TV shows have it all wrong”, says Walter T. Shaw, retired from the most infamous burglary ring in America. Rarely do thieves wear president-look alike masks, pantyhose or any face coverings at all to pull a job.  Many times, they don’t even wear gloves.

“Thieves are arrogant; they don’t think they’ll be caught. And they’re not the least bit worried that a neighbor will be able to get a good enough look to give a description to the cops,” Shaw says.

However, Shaw shares their Achilles’ heel:  “They don’t have the time — or in many cases the talent — to disable surveillance systems. And they don’t want video surveillance of them rummaging through your home winding up in the cops’ hands or worse, on the evening news for their own neighbor to finger them.”

Video monitoring is a crook’s kryptonite, so make sure you protect your home and business using video. Shaw says burglars don’t know where the video is being recorded, since many video solutions today offer secure, cloud-based recording (with no recorder in the home or business to destroy) they’re likely to pass right on by. The footage could be captured offsite, so the moment they enter the home, it’s too late. They’ve been caught on candid camera,” Shaw says.

Home security is far more than intrusion and smoke alarms, it’s an integrated approach that keeps the bad guys out AND the good guys safe

Keeping the Good Guys Safe

Home security is far more than intrusion and smoke alarms, it’s an integrated approach that keeps the bad guys out AND the good guys safe. You protect your house and valuables; be sure you are protecting what makes your house a home: family.

Video and remote control of your home may sound like too much, but consider these scenarios:

  1. Your children are old enough to come home from school by themselves before you get home. But do you really know when they arrived, who they are bringing home with them or whether homework is getting done? Interactive Services allows you to receive video clips via text or email – so you can have a snapshot video of your children arriving safely home. Or, peek in on them real-time from work and see whether they are doing homework or playing video games.
  2. Monitor doors to the medicine, gun, and liquor cabinet and see valuable video clips triggered by motion. Children are curious and they may not admit that they try to enter adult-only areas of your home when you’re not there. Provide yourself with the peace of mind that comes with knowing.
  3. Need to check in on your elderly parent who is still living independently but recently had a health scare or a fall? Of course we offer personal emergency solutions- but with video clips and real time video, you can do more than alert medical personnel when there is an emergency, you empower yourself to check in on Mom or Dad whenever you want, just to be sure.
  4. Is your pet safe to roam around the house while you’re gone? Just want to check in, or adjust the temperature remotely if there is a severe temperature change to make sure they are comfortable? No problem – smarter home solutions are here.
