Fire Detection

Fire Lite Horn-StrobeWhen thinking about adding fire protection, contact your homeowner’s insurance representative to discuss possible discounts.

Monitored fire detection devices are a great addition to a system because they give the fire department a few extra minutes to get to your house. Without a monitored fire system, the fire department may not be notified until smoke is billowing from the home.

Smartphone Control

residential-services-1What is all the talk about controlling your home remotely? It’s everywhere: TV commercials, magazines, and online.

You know it is possible but what does it actually entail? Perhaps you have seen a neighbor / friends system and want to do the same.

We have a detailed page explaining the entire process (seen here) but a summary is provided below.
