Alarm systems, thermostats, and leak prevention systems are a few technologies that can enhance the safety and efficiency of your home.
New satellite wireless alarm systems are easy to install yourself and provide a more secure system than older hardwire systems. Alarm systems that rely on hardwire or telephone lines may be cut purposely or rendered useless by downed lines. The wireless alarm will detect & notify your cell phone, iPad, or computer of broken glass, temperature issues and sensor-related activity.
Remote program thermostats are a proactive way to maximize the efficiency of your heat or AC use.
The newer Leak Defense System is a terrific tool for remotely detecting burst pipes. The system is installed on the water intake valve for your home and will report unusual water flow in the event of a broken pipe in the home.
Check with your insurance agent to see if the installation of any of these improvements will reduce your premium. They may even provide a discount on the purchase of the hardware for the new system.
