Your garage is a very important part of your home; hold your vehicles, boats, ATV’s, Dirt Bikes, Tools, it can be your man cave, your workplace, or your storage. With all of these valuable items in your garage, why is it so commonly overlooked when considering security?
It cost too much money: In the last few years, a lot of security products have come down in price. The cost to install contacts, motions, etc. is much cheaper now than ever before. If you got a quote to protect your garage a few years ago, give us a call again as you may be surprised at the cost.
Garage is too far away: DSC has their best range wireless devices – DSC NEO. This allows communication up to 2 miles away! If you have failed to have your needs met by a security company before, give us a call and we would be happy to keep everything protected for you.
It doesn’t affect my Insurance: Most insurance companies will give you a discount simply by having a security system installed in your home. Lately we have noticed an increased number of insurance companies requesting monitored Smoke and Heat detectors inside an attached garage to keep their insurance contracts valid. It is always best to call your insurance company to make sure that you have the coverage that you need.
I enter through my garage: Most people have their keypads at the front door, so if they come through the garage it can take longer than the 30-60 seconds to reach the keypad and disarm the system. If this was your hold back, don’t worry! Most providers now offer a cell phone app so you can turn off your system when you’re close to home, or a key fob can be used to disarm the system before you pull up to the garage. A few providers now offer Geofencing, so your security system will know when your in the area and can disarm automatically.
I park my car outside: The security world is growing and expanding every day. If you park your car outside your garage and are worried about having your home protected, but your car and/or garage unarmed, that’s okay! We can cover your garage and driveway with motion and camera options. Most systems even come with a partition, this can allow you to control different “sections” of your security system; this way you can arm both your home and garage, or select the one you’d like to arm/disarm.
If you have any questions or concerns, give us a call so we can help keep ALL of your valuables protected.
