Smart Home Security System | Severe Weather Alerts

Smart Home Security System | Severe Weather Alerts

Our smart home security system pinpoints your location and delivers real-time emergency alerts directly to your alarm panel. It will sound a distinct loud beep and display the specific weather warning on your alarm keypad. It will continue to beep until you acknowledge it at the keypad. (For specific instructions on acknowledging a severe weather alert, scroll to the bottom of this page.) If there is a tornado approaching, a smart home security system just might save your life. An Extra Layer of Protection There are many ways to find out about severe weather in your area: Mobile phone apps, television broadcasts, radio warnings, looking out the window, etc. Unfortunately, there are also scenarios where we may not have access to these forms of communication. Like when we are sleeping, the power is out, our cell phone battery is dead, the internet is down, the TV is turned off, and we are not listening to the radio or looking outside. In those cases, a smart home security system could be what saves you. How To Make it Stop Beeping Although the loud beeping from your alarm panel could save your life in a tornado, it can also be pretty annoying once you know about it and are headed to your safe room, or once the threat has passed. To stop the periodic beeping, press the home button (it looks like a house) if there is nothing showing on the screen. Then choose “Security” on the touchscreen. Press the Red Alert Icon on the screen next to Status. Press the message that appears. You can either select to mark it as read, or delete the message. Severe weather alerts are just one of the many features included in a smart home security system. To learn about other features, visit our smart security page.

Wireless Alarm Monitoring Plano | Superior Reliability

Wireless Alarm Monitoring Plano | Superior Reliability

Sometimes the old way of doing things is more reliable than new technology. With security systems that is simply not the case. Advancements in technology have made Wireless Alarm Monitoring Plano the most dependable way to protect your home and family with a fast, secure transmission even when there is no power, the internet is down, cellular signals are weak and more. Cellular is Better When some of us think about cellular signals, we think about our cell phones. Dropped calls, dead zones and poor reception give us a negative impression about the intangible wireless network and more specifically wireless alarm monitoring Plano. The truth is, cellular networks are pretty incredible, and are constantly improving. Fortunately, the signal strength required for a data signal from your alarm system to the monitoring center is minuscule. Also, since your security system doesn’t move around like your mobile phone, our technicians can find the strongest signal from the best tower and the best network for your location. If a tower goes down, it automatically switches to another tower. Why Not Use a Landline? You may be tempted to think a good old-fashioned phone line wire would be the most reliable form of alarm monitoring. After all, the wire is visible and tangible, and the technology has been around for ages. Unfortunately, not only can you see and touch the wire, you can also cut it. If a clever burglar cuts your phone line outside your home (it is not hard to do, and only takes a second), your alarm system won’t be able to send a signal to the monitoring center. You are then effectively paying for a service that won’t do a bit of good in preventing a burglary. No one likes wasting money. Beyond Monitoring In addition to wireless alarm monitoring Plano, we offer a smart security system that adds yet another layer of protection with 2 way voice and patented crash and smash protection. Without smart security, a burglar could break in and quickly damage or destroy your alarm system before it could send a signal to the alarm monitoring center. This popular type of burglary is called a “crash & smash”. With a smart system from DFW Security, a signal is sent the second you open a door. If the disarm signal isn’t received, the police are dispatched to a possible crash and smash situation. In addition, 2 way voice means the alarm monitoring center can speak directly into your home in an emergency, removing the need for phone calls back and forth. Quite simply, smart security and wireless alarm monitoring Plano is the best option for protecting your people and property from burglary, fire and medical emergencies.

Home Security System Dallas | The Good, Bad & Ugly

Home Security System Dallas | The Good, Bad & Ugly

For the most part, any Home Security System Dallas is good – definitely better than nothing. All alarm systems protect against burglary, fire and medical emergencies in some way, at least some of the time. If you’re looking for a higher level of protection with more features, extreme reliability, added convenience and energy savings, the smart system is the way to go. Or, as we call it here….THE GOOD. The Good Really this one should be called THE GREAT. Not only does it offer the reliability that comes from a 2 way dedicated wireless connection and patented Crash & Smash Protection, but it also allows for home automation, energy management, video monitoring, Wellness Medical Monitoring and more. Check out some of the features: Mobile Application and Home Management Website Smart Schedules and Automation for Heating, Cooling and Lighting Remote Access Keyless Entry Door Locks Text and Email Activity Alerts and Reminders Integrated Garage Door Control Location-Based GEO Services Live and Recorded Video on your Mobile Device   In addition to all the convenience features, the smart home security system Dallas notifies you and the alarm monitoring center even when it is damaged or destroyed. With built-in wireless monitoring and rechargeable battery backup, your system will work even when the power goes out, the internet is down or the cell signal is extremely weak in your area. The 2 way voice feature means an alarm monitoring center operator can speak directly into your home in an emergency without having to fiddle with a phone call. The Bad Okay, so they’re not really bad…they’re just old-fashioned and one dimensional. A traditional home security system Dallas only works well when it is armed and a break-in occurs. It doesn’t provide any other information about your home like the smart system above. Wireless monitoring can be added for more protection, and as long as you remember to arm the system and answer your phone, it should work great. The Ugly The lowest rung on the home security system Dallas continuum is a traditional alarm system with landline alarm monitoring. Even though a crafty burglar can easily cut the phone line outside the house, or destroy the system inside the house to render it useless, it is very budget friendly (DFW Security offers plans from $12.95/mo), it earns up to a 20% discount on your homeowners insurance premium, and well – it is better than nothing… If you’re serious about protecting your home and family, and you want to get everything you can from your home security system Dallas, choose THE GOOD – a smart system from DFW Security.

Home Security System Plano | Types

Posted by on 1:57 pm in Alarm Monitoring, Blog, Home Security | 0 comments

Home Security System Plano | Types

There are three main types of alarm systems available to homeowners in the Plano area this year. The first home security system Plano is pretty basic, the second is much more advanced, and the third is downright impressive. Choosing which one is right for you is a matter of budget and need. No matter which option you decide on, we can provide the best value in the Metroplex. The Workhorse A home security system Plano like this has existed for over 20 years with very little change. When the system is armed and a sensor is tripped, 1) the alarm sounds, 2) it calls the alarm monitoring center, 3) the homeowner gets a phone call, and 4) the police are dispatched if needed. These types of systems normally use a standard home phone line to transmit signals to the alarm monitoring center, but a cellular transmitter can also be added for wireless alarm monitoring without a phone line. The main limitation to this basic system is that it only provides information when it is armed, and therefore only serves a limited function. It is also vulnerable since a burglar can cut the phone line outside the home (if you don’t have wireless alarm monitoring), and/or destroy the control panel inside the home to prevent it from notifying the alarm monitoring center. The biggest advantage to a basic home security system Plano is that landline alarm monitoring starts at only $12.95 per month with DFW Security, and many people already have basic systems installed in their home. The Smart One If you’re looking to get more from your alarm system, the smart security system is the way to go. For just a few dollars more (packages start around $30 per month), you can have a system that 1) protects against crash and smash burglaries, 2) works even when it is not armed, 3) warns you about severe weather, 4) doesn’t require a phone line, 5) allows the alarm monitoring center to talk directly into your home, 6) has a touch screen, 7) comes with a mobile app so you can control the system remotely, 8) offers text and email alerts and reminders, and 9) is easily expandable to include video and home automation. The Showstopper If you really want to pull out all the stops and get a home security system Plano that does just about everything you can dream of, choose the smart system with home automation. It is the same smart system discussed above, but with automation added. Control lights, thermostats, cameras, door locks, garage doors and more with our mobile app or website. View live and recorded video, lower your electric bill with Energy Management, keep an eye on elderly parents with Wellness Medical Monitoring, Program automatic functions based on your location, system activity, schedule and more. This robust system can be completely customized to meet your unique needs and, depending on the options you choose,  only costs around $40 – $70 per month with DFW Security. If you would like help choosing the home security system Plano that’s right for you, call our friendly representatives today or click the button below and we’ll call you! Get Started Now...

Alarm Monitoring Plano | Peace of Mind

Alarm Monitoring Plano | Peace of Mind

A monitored alarm system is still the best way to protect your home and family from burglary, fire and medical emergencies. DFW Security’s alarm monitoring Plano combines the highest quality monitoring service, with a great low price, to ensure your protection – without breaking the bank. Highest Quality Alarm monitoring centers in Texas are inspected and rated by the Central Station Alarm Association, or C.S.A.A. Each center is then given a rating based on reliability, customer service, equipment, backup and emergency procedures, response time, and more. The dispatch centers are then inspected annually in order to maintain their initial rating. DFW Security’s center for alarm monitoring Plano has achieved and maintained a 5 Diamond rating since its very first year. 5 Diamonds is the highest rating available. Low Price Just because our quality is high, does not mean our prices are too. Since the creation of our company, it has been our passion to offer high quality products and services at the lowest possible price. Landline alarm monitoring Plano starts at just $12.95 per month. Other home security companies in the Metroplex are charging around $30 per month for the same service, and many don’t even have the 5 Diamond rating. Wireless Alarm Monitoring Since many homeowners are getting rid of their home phone, wireless alarm monitoring is also available in Plano starting at just $16.95 per month. Either a special Uplink cellular transmitter is attached to your existing alarm system, or you can upgrade to our smart security system with the wireless communicator built in. Either way, a dedicated wireless connection is the most secure way to monitor your home since there are no wires to be cut. Alarm signals can be sent even when your power goes out or the internet is down. Smarter Security While alarm monitoring Plano is a great way to protect your home, additional options are available thanks to advancements in technology. A mobile app allows you to control your alarm system from your phone. Integrated home automation allows you to control your thermostat, garage door, cameras, lights, locks and more. Because DFW Security is committed to providing value, these additional services are amazingly affordable, often the same price you would pay other home security companies for plain old alarm monitoring. We hope you’ll join our family so we can help protect yours. At DFW Security, we are “Making Life Simple…Safe…Smart.” Get Started...

DFW Security at ISC West 2015

Posted by on 4:23 pm in Blog, DFW Security, News & Updates, Uncategorized | 0 comments

DFW Security at ISC West 2015

We’re here… Again! DFW Security makes a priority to attend ISC West every year in Las Vegas to stay on the cutting edge of technology, build and maintain relationships with suppliers, manufacturers and industry leaders, and even have a little fun! The International Security Conference (ISC), sponsored by the Security Industry Association (SIA), hosts companies from all over the world, and is the largest event in the U.S. for the security industry. Over 1,000 exhibitors in Alarms & Monitoring, Access Control,  Biometrics, IP Security, Video Surveillance / CCTV, Networked Security Products and more all come together and share ideas to make the security industry be the best it can be.   So far, we at DFW Security have enjoyed visiting with companies such as 2 Gig (Nortek), UCC, DSC, Wave, Automated Outlet, Alarm.com and more.   But it is not all work around here. It is Vegas after all. We’ve also enjoyed some great dinners, a magic show, a dust storm, perhaps a little gambling, and I even got to hold a real live monkey! The monkey was used in an illustration to show how simple it is to use a 2 Gig security system – even a monkey can do it!   With 2  more days left, I’m sure I’ll have more to report. But for now, I’m headed back to the show. Stay...

Home Automation Fort Worth | Integrating with Security

Home Automation Fort Worth | Integrating with Security

Home automation Fort Worth used to be only for the wealthy. Now, thanks to advancements in technology, just about anyone can afford a high-tech, multi-purpose home automation system. Integrate with a home security system and it becomes even more useful. Why buy home automation Fort Worth from a security company? It may seem strange to you to purchase a home automation package from a security company, but it actually increases the effectiveness of the automation system. The automation portion of the system takes cues from the activity of the alarm system and becomes more efficient and more automated. Here are some examples: When the alarm is armed in the away mode, your thermostats can automatically adjust to an energy-saving temperature, your lights can turn off automatically, and your doors can all lock. If your alarm is armed and garage door is left open, you can get a text message and close it on your mobile app, or you can set it up to close automatically after a few minutes. If the alarm goes off, you can have all your lights flash on and off and all your cameras record. If a fire is detected (requires fire protection), your HVAC system can shut off automatically so the smoke won’t be dispersed everywhere in your home. Since our security system knows when you open and close contacted doors even when the alarm isn’t set, you can program certain actions to occur, like turning on the entry light when the front door is opened after dark. What about video? Adding video monitoring to your home automation Fort Worth, makes the system even more helpful. Record in response to motion, system event, or schedule. View live or recorded video from our mobile app on your computer or mobile device. Always know what’s going on at your property, even when you’re not there. Learn more about video monitoring. Better Together Buying home security and home automation together makes both systems better. For around $50 a month (can be more or less, depending on the options you choose), your home can run more efficiently, saving you time, money and effort. Call us today for more information on home automation Fort Worth. Get Started...

Home Security System Dallas | A Better Way

Posted by on 9:31 am in Alarm Monitoring, Blog, Home Security | 0 comments

Home Security System Dallas | A Better Way

The Old Way of Doing Things In the not-too-distant past, a home security system Dallas was little more than a beeping device that sent a one-way transmission to an alarm monitoring center. It only worked when a standard home phone line was present and active. It only worked when you remembered to turn it on, and it only worked when an alarm occurred. While useful in a break-in situation, it did little else to improve the lifestyle of its owners, and had many holes in its protection. Problems with the Old Way There are a lot of potential issues with an older style home security system Dallas. The phone line. There are 3 vulnerabilities with using a traditional landline home phone for alarm transmission. First, a phone line can be cut outside the house before a burglar breaks in. The alarm system would then be prevented from communicating the alarm to the alarm monitoring center. Why pay for a service that can so easily be thwarted? Next, a lot of people don’t want to pay for a home phone and are choosing to use their cellular phone as their sole method of telephone communication. If you keep your home phone line just for your alarm system, you are adding unnecessary expense to your monthly alarm monitoring bill. Finally, when an alarm does occur and the alarm monitoring center needs to contact you, they’ll most likely call the same phone line that is used to transmit signals to the dispatch center. The phone line could be busy dialing out, causing you to miss your voice call. Alternatively, if they call your mobile phone, you may not be home and will be unable to confirm whether the alarm is indeed valid. A simpler solution is 2-way voice, but we will talk about that a little later. One way communication. Not only can an old home security system Dallas be prevented from transmitting an alarm by cutting the phone line, but it can also easily be destroyed. A popular burglary called the “crash and smash” entails a thief breaking in and quickly ripping the alarm system off the wall before it can make noise or send a signal to the alarm monitoring center.  Unfortunately, these types of burglaries are simple and popular, and make owning an old-style alarm system a big waste of money. Because an older home security system Dallas only sends signals to the alarm monitoring center, and only when an alarm occurs, they don’t help with other problems. For example, what if you forget to set your alarm system and someone opens your back door at 3 am? What if you forget to close your garage door or lock the front door when you leave home? An older system can do nothing about these issues, but a smart security system can. The New Way With a new smart security system from DFW Security, a phone line is not necessary. Our home security system Dallas has a built-in, dedicated wireless communicator to ensure uninterrupted communication with the alarm monitoring center at all times. It transmits even if there is no power, no internet service and no home phone line; and even when a cell tower goes down or there is a very weak cellular signal. With our smart system, an emergency...

DFW Security Partners with Green Oaks School

Posted by on 3:09 pm in Blog, DFW Security, News & Updates, Uncategorized | 0 comments

DFW Security Partners with Green Oaks School

What is the Green Oaks School? In their own words, Green Oaks is “a unique Christian school and program for individuals with Down syndrome and similar intellectual disabilities in the North Texas area.” The school offers personalized education, with a low student to teacher ratio, for youth ages 5 and up, and for adults of any age through the Green Oaks Adult Learning (GOAL) program. Students are taught math, reading, writing and basic social studies, along with art, music, speech and language, computer skills, daily living skills, physical education and even bowling. Older students and adults continue to study academics, but also focus on independent living skills, self-responsibility, social skills, careers and job training. Why is DFW Security partnering with them? DFW Security is committed to serving our community to make it better, and supporting others who are doing the same. The Green Oaks School is doing an excellent job of providing much needed help to a part of our community that is often overlooked. Since one of their goals is to provide job training and job opportunities to their adult students, we at DFW Security discovered a way we could help. Instead of paying a traditional marketing company to mail or place flyers on homeowners’ doors, we are offering the opportunity to the students at Green Oaks. The students are excited to begin hanging flyers one day a week for 1 or 2 hours. They will gain valuable work experience, have a chance to interact with the community, and earn a paycheck.  How can I help? Although Green Oaks charges tuition for their students, it only covers about two-thirds of their expense. The rest is made up with donations, fundraisers and volunteers. You can help support their vision by donating your time or money. In addition, they have an ongoing wish list of supplies you could provide: White and Color Copy Paper White Cardstock Plastic Utensils Napkins and Paper Towels Paper Plates Bottled Water Disinfecting Wipes AA and AAA Batteries 30 or 33 Gallon Trash Bags   The Green Oaks School is located at 500 Houston Street in Arlington, TX 76011. For more information, you can visit their website at http://www.greenoaksschool.org/ or call (817) 861-5000. THANK YOU GREEN OAKS! We are so thankful for what you are doing and are humbled to be a part of...
