The heart of winter is upon us which makes this the perfect time to talk about the solutions dealers can suggest during the cold weather months. Security—and peace of mind—isn’t just about protecting against home invasion, it’s about anticipating Mother Nature, as well.

  • Temperature monitoring – Many systems can monitor temperatures within a home or apartment, alerting occupants of high heat or
    freezing temperatures.
  • Flood monitoring – Be sure your system includes flood monitoring. Water damage is a leading cause of home insurance claims.and even those in colder climates still have concerns with pipes freezing and causing water damage.
  • Easy installation – Look for a system that gives the ability to easily monitor all areas of the home. Attics, sump basins, cellars, furnace and boiler rooms and the like.
  • These can all be difficult areas of the home for sensor placement and RF range.
