CAN YOU OUTSMART A THIEF?


All About Theft

  • 66% of break-in's are forced entry and forced entry attempts
  • 34% of break-in's are unlawful entry (without force)
  • In 2014, Saskatchewan had 8506 break-in's (164/week)
  • Break-in's occur in all areas of the City - not just the "bad areas"
  • Most Home break-in's occur when you are at work or travelling (daytime)
  • Most Business break-in's occur when you are at home (evening and weekends)
  • Cabin's and Lake properties are especially attractive
  • 98% of break-in's occur though main floor doors and windows (often unlocked)
  • Thieves target the Master Bedroom
  • Thieves steal:
    • Cash and Credit Cards
    • Jewelry
    • Designer clothes and sunglasses
    • Electronics such as TV's, Stereos, Computers, Video Game systems, Smartphones and Tablets
    • Tools
    • Sporting Goods
    • Cars and Trucks or the contents in them
    • Building Materials
    • Alcohol and Prescription drugs
    • Your Identity


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.

WILL MY ALARM STILL WORK IF I DON'T HAVE A HOME PHONE LINE?

Many existing alarm systems rely on traditional phone lines to send alarm signals to our 24/7 Monitoring Stations. We see a trend that 1 in 4 home-owners no longer have phone lines and instead only use their cell phones.

With today's affordable cell phone service, a home phone line is no longer a necessity and an easy way to save some cash. In fact, you can SAVE $20 to $30 every month depending on your home phone provider.

STOP! DON'T CANCEL YOUR HOME PHONE SERVICE YET

If you DO NOT have home phone service:

  • your alarm system is unable to send signals
  • your alarm system is no longer monitored
  • you must notify your insurance company
  • you no longer receive 10% to 25% insurance discounts
A BETTER OPTION
  • ALARM.COM by Reed Security uses cell phone towers to send wireless emergency signals to our 24/7 Monitoring Stations
  • Works just about anywhere there's cell coverage including farms and cabins.
  • Works on SaskTel, Rogers, Telus and Bell networks.
  • An ALARM.COM 3G radio can be added to most modern alarm systems. We have some great deals if you need to upgrade.
  • ALARM.COM Packages start at $17.95/mo. and includes the 3G radio and service (this is an additional price to your base monitoring fees)
  • This is half price compared to what you would pay for home phone service
  • You still receive your 10% to 25% insurance discounts

SAY NO TO THE DOOR TO DOOR ALARM SCAM

Consumer Warning

It's that time of year when you will be getting pressured by door to door salespeople. They would like to sign you up to "limited time offer" that expires "right away". And before you know it you're on the hook for thousands of dollars. (This happens several thousand times each year).

For more information do a Google Search and type "Door to Door Alarm Scams". Thousands of people have been duped.

The Pressure:

  • Sales person won't leave even when you tell them to "Leave"
  • Sales person won't leave when you tell them "No Thanks"
  • Sales person won't leave when you say "I Already Have Your Products or Service"
  • Sales person name drops the name of your neighbor and makes it sound like "they signed up" or "they bought one" or "they referred me to you"
  • Sales person comes to the house more than once

The Solutions:

  1. Put Up Your Hand and Say "NO". Immediately close the door and the sales person will eventually leave.
  2. Tell them "You are Trespassing" and that you will call the BBB Better Business Bureau, Consumer Protection Branch and the Police if they do not leave.

    BBB   1-888-352-7601
    Consumer Protection   1-877-880-5550 
    Saskatoon Police   
    (306) 975-8300 
    RCMP (Saskatoon)   (306) 975-5173
    or call your Local Detachment


  3. Always Get 3 Quotes for whatever you consider purchasing. This gives you the time to gather information and to check if the "deal" being presented to you is the best option.
  4. Never Accept Quick Delivery of a product or service. This gives you a cooling off period and more time to gather facts.
  5. If you did proceed with the offer You Have 10 Days to Change Your Mind and CANCEL (and get a full refund). It's the Law in Saskatchewan.
  6. Don't Forget - You may already be in a contract for the products or services being offered to you.
