Top Myths About Home Security Systems – Part 2

Home Security Myths - Red Safety & Security

Top Myths About Home Security Systems – Part 2

Many homeowners have reservations when it comes to home security systems. Although security systems have been around for years, so have several myths about them. To help you better understand the ins and outs of home security, we are continuing our list of the top myths about home security systems and why they aren’t true: 

Myth: Security Systems Come With Unreasonable Contracts

While some companies may charge higher for around the clock monitoring or high-tech equipment, the average cost for a good home security system is much lower than you’d think, and you can purchase one without a contract if that’s what you’re looking for. 

Many people want to avoid long-term contracts for different reasons. Whatever the reason, opting for a home security system without contracts may be the best way to test whether a home security system is right for you. Companies like Abode, Simplisafe, and Cove offer contract-free security systems with 24/7 monitoring at a low monthly cost. 

Myth: Home Security Systems Can Be Glitchy 

For the most part, you don’t need to worry about your home security system glitching if it is installed properly. To be extra sure that the system is running correctly, you may want to test it once a month to check that you don’t have low batteries or wiring problems. 

Myth: Guns Are Better Than Home Security Systems

When it comes to protection, guns can be effective; But only if you’re ready. Many break-ins happen at night, which means you could be sleeping and not have the proper reaction time. Plus, guns may not deter crime as much as the clear signage of an installed home security system.

Myth: My House is Too Old for Modern Security Systems 

In the past, home security systems were more invasive than the ones today, with intricate installation and internal wiring. Now, security systems can almost always be installed in any home, new or old. This is especially true of wireless systems, which are just as effective as wired ones and offer impressive smartphone compatibility perks. 

At Red Safety, we take home security seriously. Our team of experts can help you decide on which security system is right for you and your home. We are located in Tukwila, Washington, and proudly serve the Greater Seattle Area. Schedule a consultation with us today to help protect your home and give you the peace of mind you deserve.

Qolsys IQ Panel 2 – Advanced Security System Features

Whether you’re at home or away, it’s always a good idea to have the best home security system on your side. The new Qolsys IQ Panel 2 is one of the top home security systems on the market, with smartphone capability, camera installations, and window sensors, all controlled in a user-friendly touchscreen wall mount. 

Here is an overview of the impressive features the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 has to offer:

User-Friendly Panel for All Ages

If you have young children living in your home, it can be stressful to ensure that they understand how to arm and disarm your home security system. The Qolsys IQ Panel 2 kept this in mind when designing their new user-friendly panel that makes controlling your system as easy as pressing a button. 

To disarm the system, users simply type in their four-digit code on the touchscreen. An alert and a photo of the person will be sent to the account holder’s smartphone and anyone else’s phone that is set up for alerts. This real-time response gives peace of mind to homeowners and parents, allowing for the constant monitoring and updates that the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 provides. 

Bluetooth and Home Integration Functions 

One of the most popular features in newer home security systems is smartphone compatibility, especially with Bluetooth. By setting up the app on your phone, you’ll be able to control the main functions of the security system, all on your smartphone or tablet. The Bluetooth feature can also sense a user’s arrival or departure from home, arming, or disarming accordingly. Plus, users can set automatic controls for lighting and heating or cooling. 

Intelligent Automation to Sync with Your Lifestyle 

The Qolsys IQ Panel 2 hosts a platform that allows for seamless, intelligent automation features controlled by your smartphone. This platform is known as Z-Wave Plus, and it will enable users to pair their Qolsys IQ Panel 2 with hundreds of smart devices. A few examples of device pairings made possible with Panel 2 are lighting, thermostats, garage door functions, and even door locks. 

Smart Motion Detection to Keep Your Home Secure

Motion sensors are excellent for keeping track of who comes or goes to ensure that nothing suspicious goes unnoticed. The Qolsys IQ Panel 2 detects body heat when someone enters a room. Users can set basic commands to turn on a light when someone walks in, or when they’re away, it will sound the alarm if a movement is detected. 

At Red Safety, our goal is to equip our customers with the home security systems that best fit their needs. We offer a number of security options from top-of-the-line providers, including the Qolsys IQ Panel 2.

Top Myths About Home Security Systems Part 1

Top Myths About Home Security Systems Part 1

Home security systems are one of the best things you can do to keep yourself and your family safe. While you’re at work, running errands, or even relaxing at home, security systems add a level of safety that brings peace of mind to homeowners. However, there are many misperceptions, most of them untrue. Here are a few of the top home security myths and why they aren’t true:

  1. I Don’t Need One Because I Live in an Upscale Neighborhood

Just because you live in a more upscale neighborhood doesn’t mean that you aren’t at risk for burglary. In fact, some burglars target upscale areas specifically, so it’s best to protect yourself with a home security system. Installing a security system in your home will allow you to monitor your home inside and out at all times to ensure that no suspicious activity goes unnoticed. 

  1. Guard Dogs are Better Than Security Systems 

Having pets can be a fun and exciting part of life, but they won’t do much in terms of protection when compared to a home security system. For starters, burglars aren’t always deterred by a guard dog. Often times they’ll scope out the house beforehand and make a plan of entrance, sometimes putting together a method that avoids the dog. Also, if you go on vacation, you probably aren’t going to leave your dog at home alone. Instead, you should install a home security system that can monitor your home’s interior and exterior at all times. 

  1. It’s Too Expensive 

Many people think that purchasing a security system is too expensive for them. However, most have changed dramatically over the years, with many affordable options for any budget. Homeowners can choose from contract home security systems with professional monitoring or standalone systems that you can install and monitor yourself. 

  1. It’s Too Complicated to Use

Learning these systems can sound daunting at first. However, many are actually extremely user-friendly these days, thanks to advanced technology. Most systems are wireless, which means a simple installation process with limited parts and gadgets. All you’ll need to do is use an app, tablet, or alarm pad to set or disarm your home alarm.

At Red Safety, our team of experts will help you find the perfect security system for your home. We are committed to providing the best installation services paired with the industry’s top home security systems. To schedule a consultation today, give us a call at 888-557-5167, or fill out our short online contact form. We look forward to working with you!
