LOCAL RETAILER SAYS REEDHD™ SECURITY CAMERA BUNDLE IS A GAME CHANGER

Left: Cole Thorpe, Founder, Prairie Proud   Right: Virgil Reed, Founder, Reed Security & Dealer Program

A Saskatchewan-based clothing company is taking off in Western Canada. With its logos making their way across the country, Prairie Proud is living up to its name.

Cole Thorpe launched the clothing line in 2014 with a goal of giving back to the community. He's built a successful brand with prairie values - Passion, Community and Quality. To date he's given back more than $19,000 to the community via charity partners. Here's his story... 

Prairie Proud partnered with Reed Security and installed a Business Bundle to stay in control, reduce losses and grow their bottom line. 
After the installation we asked Cole for his feedback and these were his comments:


1. How did you find out about Reed Security?

As a resident of Saskatoon for the last 8 years, I have become aware of Reed Security and its offering. Most notably, Reed Security proudly provides the security system for IDEAS Inc. in which my business (Prairie Proud) operates. 


2. What solution did you install? Why?

As a growing local retailer, we wanted to legitimize our security in an effort of loss prevention. I decided to install a REED HD Bundled Solution which includes 3 cameras in addition to moving our motion detectors into locations of high traffic which are clearly visible. This bundle solution coupled with mobile access has provided peace of mind as an entrepreneur.

3. Is the solution meeting your expectations?

Yes, I have been very happy with this solution.
 

4. What features do you like about the solution?

Personally, the mobile access is a game changer for someone like me; many aspects of my business are run from my phone and the fact that I can now monitor security from the palm of my hand is a reflection of business in the 21st century.
 

5. Would you recommend Reed Security to others? Why? 

Yes, I would definitely recommend Reed Security to others; the service provided was excellent and supporting other local businesses is part of our philosophy.

SUMMER SECURITY TIPS 2017

Heading on summer vacation? There's nothing worse than coming back to a home that had a break-in. Here's 20+ Summer Security Tips you can implement to protect your Home and Property while you're travelling.


You're Going to Need More Than a Funny Welcome Mat to Prevent a Break-in!


1. USE COMMON SENSE

If you lose a key, then get the locks changed. A better alternative is to eliminate keys altogether by installing an alarm.com smart lock with built in keypad.

Ask all strangers for identification. The person who is “lost” and looking for directions could actually be a burglar checking to see if someone is home.

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. Again, a better alternative is to eliminate keys altogether by installing an alarm.com smart lock with built in keypad.

DO NOT advertise on Facebook or Instagram that you are on vacation. Social media is the equivalent of a diary in a glass house. You may think you’re letting your friends and family know you’re having a great time, but people often forget to change their privacy settings. If you like to post photos - post them after you get back.

For insurance purposes take photos of the contents of your home and keep all receipts in an off-site location. Great options are Google Drive, Microsoft Cloud and Dropbox.

Write down the model and serial number of all electronics. This will come in handy for a future Police report and insurance claim.



2. MAKE IT DIFFICULT

Door chains are easy to bypass. Install deadbolts. We have alarm.com smart lock options with built in deadbolts.

Install window bars on all basement windows. They are a great visual deterrent and can be connected to a monitored home security system.

Install a stopper or stick on all sliding doors and windows. You can find these at your local hardware store such as Home Hardware, Canadian Tire or Rona.

Make sure all doors and windows are locked. Many burglars go door to door looking for targets that forgot to lock their front doors.

For cabins, consider installing roller window and door shutters. Visit kimbel.ca to see samples.


3. MAKE IT LOOK LIKE YOU ARE AT HOME

Burglars target unoccupied homes so keep your home well lit at night. Install timers that turn lights, radios and televisions on at different times. This gives the appearance that someone is home. A better option is to install alarm.com smart lights and smart appliance modules and setup on an alternating schedules.

Cancel the newspaper and have a friend or neighbour pick-up your mail.

Park a vehicle in the drive-way. Don’t forget to lock the doors and remove any valuables.

If you’re taking an extended vacation of more than a week, hire a student or service to cut your grass.



4. INSTALL A MONITORED HOME OR CABIN SECURITY SYSTEM

The insurance companies agree. You are 400% less likely to have a break-in and can qualify for an insurance discount of up to 25%.

  • NEW! $0 Equipment, $0 Installation Plans
  • No Phone Line required
  • 24/7 Monitored Protection from intrusion, fire, flood, low temperature, and carbon monoxide
  • Includes Police / RCMP and Fire Department dispatch and Call List notification
  • Optional ALARM.COM - control your smart lights, smart locks, and smart thermostat with *free apps
  • Optional ReedHD™ Wi-Fi Doorbell - Know Who's at the front door, record audio and video onto the cloud
  • A monthly subscription is required for all service plans



5. 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 mobile phone and wait.


6. ALWAYS GET 3 QUOTES

Do NOT Sign Up with Door to Door alarm companies with Limited Time Offers. Before you know it you will be on the hook for thousands of dollars with a company that doesn't have a local office. Many door to door alarm companies have summer programs (May to September only). After that good luck. Be sure to search Google for reviews and ask friends and family who they use for home security.
