BEWARE OF THE DOOR TO DOOR ALARM SCAM

It's that time of year when you will be getting pressured by aggressive door to door salespeople. They will be pushing you to sign you up to "limited time offers" that expire "right away" (because they do not have a local office).  And before you know you know it you're on the hook for thousands of dollars.

Several alarm companies only have SUMMER PROGRAMS. They rent houses and hire large crews of university students which are offered large commissions ($400 to $500 per contract) to get you to sign up.

LEARN MORE by Googling "door to door alarm scam".


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 several times and won't leave you alone

·        The Solutions:

  • Put Up Your Hand and "Say NO".
  • Immediately close the door and the sales person will eventually leave.
    Tell them "You are Trespassing" and that you are calling 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
  • 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.
  • Never Accept Quick Delivery of a product or service. This gives you a cooling off period and more time to gather facts.

  • 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 Alberta and Saskatchewan.
  • Create Awareness and Share on Social Media
  • Contact the local media

THE SECRET OF OUR SUCCESS: AFFORDABILITY & FANTASTIC SERVICE

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.”
 
An Anniversary Gift to You!
 
In celebration of Reed Security’s 15th Anniversary in Saskatoon and Second Anniversary in Prince Albert we would like to offer all new clients the following alarm promo: 

  • $99 activation (reg. $299) for all Switch Overs
  • $299 activation (reg. $599) for all New Installations
  • $5 a Month 24/7 Monitoring for the first year (after that it’s only $19.95)
  • Free low temperature sensor
  • Free ALARM.COM Interactive Services – for the first month
  • Professional Installation with Full System Test

  • Expires November 30th, 2015

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

GREAT NEWS! WE'RE GROWING OUR PRINCE ALBERT LOCATION


Nearly two years after opening a Reed Security Authorized Dealership in Prince Albert, SK - owners Oyvind Sparboe (left) and Myron Jacobsen (right) have the confidence to expand. The new location features a ReedHD Camera Experience Center that let's prospective clients "try before you buy". Please stop in and see how we capture Faces & License Plates.

Before opening Thor Security Ltd. both Security Specialists worked for a local competitor and each had 7 years experience with service management, installations and troubleshooting, but they needed some help with all the other stuff.

Reed Security Authorized Dealers are mentored and receive on-going coaching with starting a business, planning, financing, operations, value-selling, marketing, and delivering excellent customer service.

It's been a very successful two years and they've started long term relationships with hundreds of Home and Business clients in Prince Albert and northern Saskatchewan. You may recognize some of them:
