Cut The Cord
One of the newest and most exciting developments in our industry is the GSM communicator. This module allows us to strengthen or replace the weakest link on our security systems, the phone line. The phone line has long been the weak link on any and all alarm systems. The miracle of the GSM communicator is the fact that it does not require any copper line in order to communicate the alarm signals to the monitoring station so that the proper response personnel may be dispatched. This device uses the same technology we all use every day to send and receive text messages and receive data on our smart phones. Since there is no line required, there is nothing for a would-be burglar to cut so that he might disable the alarm system’s communication.
This great device also gives some of us the ability to eliminate an expense that we might not have, but for the security system. Nearly every man, woman and child now owns and uses a cellular phone. Without the need for a hard copper line, many are opting to do away with their home telephone service and strictly use cellular.
For more information about the wonder of GSM communication and how it can make your home safer and more secure contact us at Safe and Sound.
Remember To Test Your System
You should always remember to test your system monthly and immediately following any severe electrical storm or power outage. If you don’t know there is a problem, you can’t tell us. If we don’t know there is a problem, we can’t correct it.
The Silent Killer
There is a silent killer in our midst, Carbon Monoxide. Carbon monoxide, or CO as it is commonly known, is defined as: a colorless odorless very toxic gas that is formed as a product of the incomplete combustion of carbon or a carbon compound.
OK, so where does it come from? Unvented kerosene and gas space heaters; leaking chimneys and furnaces; back-drafting from furnaces, gas water heaters, wood stoves, and fireplaces; gas stoves; generators and other gasoline powered equipment; automobile exhaust from attached garages; and tobacco smoke. Incomplete oxidation during combustion in gas ranges and unvented gas or kerosene heaters may cause high concentrations of CO in indoor air. Worn or poorly adjusted and maintained combustion devices (e.g., boilers, furnaces) can be significant sources, or if the flue is improperly sized, blocked, disconnected, or is leaking. Auto, truck, or bus exhaust from attached garages, nearby roads, or parking areas can also be a source.
What does it do? At low concentrations, fatigue in healthy people and chest pain in people with heart disease. At higher concentrations, impaired vision and coordination; headaches; dizziness; confusion; nausea. Can cause flu-like symptoms that clear up after leaving home.CO exposure can be fatal at very high concentrations. Acute effects are due to the formation of carboxyhemoglobin in the blood, which inhibits oxygen intake. At moderate concentrations, angina, impaired vision, and reduced brain function may result. At higher concentrations, CO exposure can be fatal.
How do we prevent it? It is most important to be sure combustion equipment is maintained and properly adjusted. Vehicular use should be carefully managed adjacent to buildings and in vocational programs. Additional ventilation can be used as a temporary measure when high levels of CO are expected for short periods of time. Keep gas appliances properly adjusted.
As you can see, CO is a dangerous substance. For more information on preventing or detecting the presence of CO, contact us today.
Dear Safe and Sound...On Oct. 11th at about 2am, my alarm went off & you all sent officers to my home. I so appreciate your great service!! The officers arrived so quickly. I truly believe the alarm saved my life. The intruder and I met in my hall & he punched me. I really believe he would have beat me if not killed me had I not had this system. Thank you for your GREAT SERVICE!!
Your work was very neatly done, which we appreciate since we have such a wonderful historic building. Your expertise in providing outstanding security and monitoring of our facility is evident. The individuals we work with were most impressed with our security system and did not hesitate to loan us several of their fine exhibits after determining our system was of the utmost quality. It is such a relief to know we don't have to worry about the priceless items and collections and their safety within our building. We appreciate the continued fast response each time we have a question regarding the system and the friendly, professional staff of Safe and Sound Security.
We are very pleased with our system. We now have peace of mind knowing that our investment is protected. You have been very kind in showing us how the system works. We can now rest assured that our investment will be protected until we return.
I would like to express my gratitude to your company (Safe and Sound Security Systems, Inc.) for the fine products and services you provide. We have had five attempted burglaries in the past twelve months and your alarm systems have performed flawlessly on each occasion. In spite of the fact that we've had so many attempted break-ins, we feel our locations are secure when we activate your systems and leave. When we receive an alarm call from your monitoring service, we know that it is a valid alarm or trouble. The problems we had experienced in the past with false alarms have been eliminated since going with your service. The equipment you use is simple to understand and very user-friendly, but very effective. Thank you for your outstanding service.
Thank you for the outstanding job you performed with the installation of my business security and fire alarm system and my residence system. Your work was competent, expedient, and professional in all aspects. Certainly in today's time as a business owner, I truly value the type of monitoring system you designed for the company. Again, thanks for a commendable job!
The service (technician) is very good to answer my questions. I haven't needed to call for service so far but it's good to know I will have help when needed. Thank you!Close
