New & Noteworthy


Two years ago, Oyvind Sparboe and Myron Jacobsen brought Reed Security to Prince Albert.
“We were long term employees at another security company and we saw first hand there was a lot of room for improvement.,” said Sparboe. “We looked at several partnership options and after careful screening, Reed Security and their $5 a month promo was clearly the best choice.”
You can feel at ease knowing your home, cabin or business is secure when you choose Reed Security as your security provider.  Solutions include Alarm Systems with 24-7 Monitoring, ReedHD™ Hi-Def Cameras you can view from your smartphone and Access Control swipe-card systems which control who goes where and when.
The one thing separating Reed Security from the rest is the commitment to providing Excellent Customer Service. Reed Security cares about building long-term relationships with their clients, going above and beyond before and after the sale. Some companies may take weeks to provide service, while Reed Security’s goal is by the next business day.
Jacobsen and Sparboe know one of the biggest benefits to having a monitored home security system, is it provides constant monitoring when you are unable to do so yourself. If you need to leave town for business or a vacation, they recommend putting your trust in Reed Security. Reed Security offers full monitoring and is a ULC listed company, which indicates a high standard of monitoring and installation. You can feel assured there will be a response to an emergency situation. Additionally, when you are away from your home or business you can use remote monitoring services. For example, ALARM.COM interactive services use 3G cell towers to connect your security system directly to your smartphone, tablet, or PC. No phone line is required.

“Today, your security system can provide you with a variety of notifications,” said Jacobsen.  “There are a lot of latch-key kids out there so now when the kids come home from school at four o’clock, or whenever, you can get a notification on your phone that lets you know the kids are home.”
Jacobsen and Sparboe want to inform potential customers that an alarm system can also provide additional protection to a variety of other factors including fire and carbon dioxide detection while preventing intruders and protecting valuables.
“A security system is not just used for security anymore,” said Jacobsen. “A lot of people think, ‘Oh, I will never get broken into.’ Well, you could still have a flood in your home, you could have a fire in your home or your furnace could quit.
“Today you can add to your security system a variety of sensors such as environmental sensors, low temp sensors, water sensors, smoke sensors and carbon dioxide sensors.”

How to Prevent Theft

  • Use Common Sense
    • If you lose a key, get the locks changed.
    • Ask all strangers for identification.
    • Never hide an extra key outdoor - especially underneath a mat or on top of a light fixture. This is the first place the bad guys look. Leave an extra house key with a friend or a neighbor.
    • DO NOT advertise on Facebook or other social media that you are on vacation. If you want to post photos, then do it when you get home.
    • For insurance purposes take photos of the contents of your home.
    • Keep all receipts in a safe and easy to find location.
    • Write down the model and serial number of all electronics.
  • Make it Difficult
    • Door chains are easy to bypass. Install deadbolts.
    • Install a stopper or stick on all sliding doors and windows.
    • Install window bars on all basement windows.
    • Make sure all doors and windows are properly locked.
    • Keep your premises well lit at night.
    • Install timers that turn lights on at different times. This gives the appearance that someone is home.
  • Install a monitored Home Security system
    • 400% less likely to have a break-in.
    • up to 25% insurance discount.
    • optional ALARM.COM with automatic lights.
  • In case you do have a break-in:
    • If it looks like a door or window was forced open, DO NOT go inside. The Burglar may still be on site.
    • Call the Police from your cellular phone or from a neighbor's house and wait.
