FIRE!

The Problem: 

  • Imagine getting a phone call from the Fire Department that your Home or Business just burnt to the ground (if you are having problems imagining:watch this video)
  • Fires are traumatic, disruptive, and cost a lot of money. 
  • In addition to destroying property, possessions, and keepsakes - they kill People, Pets and Businesses.
The Solution: 
  • All Reed Security Burglar Alarm systems can be turned into Fire Protection Systems by adding monitored smoke sensors and heat sensors.
  • Smoke Sensors cost anywhere from*$100 to $150 each.
  • Your existing smoke sensors make noise to alert your family/co-workers, but they can't do anything when you are away.
  • Reed Security monitored smoke sensors are connected to our 24/7 Monitoring Stations. When we get an alarm we immediately dispatch the Fire Department and notify your key-holders.
  • Losses to Fire are reduced or avoided all together.
  • Bonus: Your Insurance Company may provide additional discounts when you have Reed Security fire protection. Typical discounts are 10% to 25%.
 
The Testimonial:

"I often worried about a fire causing damage to our building and decided to install monitored smoke detectors. I'm So Glad We Did- Reed Security and the Saskatoon Fire Department recently saved the day."

Wayne and Laurie Walling,

Reed Security a Alarm and Security Expert provides a TRUSTED TIP on accessing video surveillance with Your Apple or Android Device

Reed Security believes when you become a client you will be entering into a relationship – one they want to grow and become long term...they work hard to meet all your Saskatoon Alarm & security needs from day one!

REED SECURITY are Trusted and they are recipients of 2 x 2012 SABEX AWARDS - these Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce awards recognize excellence in business. 

Here they share a great tip on See Who's At the Front Door with Your Apple or Android Device: 

Remote View in HD

When the condo owners at The LUXE Building wanted to See who's at the front door and get better security they partnered with Reed Security.

The Problem:

  • Many multi-unit buildings can no longer (affordably) display the front door camera on their TV's.
  • Occupants could previously view the front door camera on a TV channel when Shaw Cable was the only cable TV option.
  • The old TV solution is no longer a viable option because many multi unit tennants have a combination of Shaw Cable, MAX, Satelite TV, Internet TV, or no TV at all.
  • Retrofitting a 24 suite finished building of this size with the old TV solution would cost more than $15,000.

The Solution:

We met the client and customized a ReedHD hi-def Video Surveillance system with the following features and benefits:

  • Protecting the entire building with ReedHD hi-def cameras was nearly the same cost as retrofitting the building with an expired solution.
  • Condo owners can access ReedHD cameras with their PC, iPhone, iPad, or Android devices - unlimited Users
  • Condo owners also talk to the visitor at the front door with an audio intercom before letting them into the building. This was previously installed.
  • Interior ReedHD cameras protect all Entrances including the Parking Garage
  • Exterior ReedHD cameras protect the Building and the Parking Lot.
  • Some cameras have Wide Dynamic Range capabilities (optimized image quality in bright and shadow conditions)
  • Some cameras have I.R. Illumination Nightvision (see in the dark)
  • 24/7 digital recording of all cameras for 14 to 30 days
  • Professional Installation - On Time and On Budget
  • up to 3 Years Manufacturers Limited Warranty to protect their investment
  • Reed Security Award Winning Service
  • See the Project Pics: Click Here

"We are VERY pleased. Certainly everyone from Reed Security that I have dealt with has been fantastic!"

Stay Open Late?

You May Need More Security. Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety has announced the enactment of a new regulatory amendment aimed at enhancing the protection of late night retail workers in Saskatchewan. The new law comes into force on January 1st, 2013, and compels those operating late night retail establishments to conduct a hazard assessment and implement a range of specific crime prevention measures to protect late night retail workers.

The primary safety and security measures contained within the new law are reproduced below with some practical considerations for employers wishing to synthesize regulatory compliance and crime prevention best practice:

1. Safe Cash Handling Procedures

Employers are required to develop written cash handling procedures with a primary objective of limiting the amount of money accessible to workers. Safe cash handling procedures are a key component in reducing the reward for potential criminals. Such procedures typically include, in part:

•limiting the amount of money held in the cash register;

counting cash and preparing deposits out of public view;

•restrictions on non-employees entering cash counting areas;

•ensuring deposits are transported by security personnel or at a minimum, are transported by two employees at different times taking different routes; and

•limiting acceptance of bills greater than $20.

2. Video Surveillance Cameras

Reed Security can help you with this by installing ReedHD hi-def video cameras that can clearly capture Faces & License Plates. 

All late night retail establishments in Saskatchewan will be required to install video cameras which must, at a minimum, capture the cash desk and any outdoor gas pumps. If prominently installed and amplified by signage, video surveillance systems can increase the risks to potential offenders. Key steps to optimize video surveillance efficacy include:

•assess the business premises as a whole before identifying camera locations;

•place cameras in locations where they are most visible to customers and in areas that ensure potential offenders will be captured on video (e.g., outside of all entrances, immediately inside of all entrances, near cash machines and behind the cash desk, near garbage disposal areas); 

•consider installing a visible video monitor above and behind the cash desk showing the camera view of the customer at the cash desk (but do not consider taking this step unless the quality of displayed video is high).

3. Maintaining Clear Lines of Visibility 

Employers are required to take steps to ensure good visibility into and out of the premises. Clear sightlines to and from the premises is another way to increase the risk perceived by offenders who fear they will be visible to passers-by during a crime.

Priorities here include:

•removing all posters, advertising materials and other signs affixed to glass entrance doors and windows (but if advertising materials are required, at least ensuring they are positioned well below eye level to maintain clear sightlines);

•relocating or lowering any freestanding items (inside and outside of the premises) which block sightlines to/from the cash desk; and

•considering raising the cash desk area to elevate the worker, enhancing the overall visibility to and from the cash desk.

4. Installing Crime Prevention Signage.

Reed Security can help you with this by installing "Protected by ReedHD Warning Signage". Under the new law, employers are required to display signs indicating workers’ limited accessibility to cash and advising of the presence of video surveillance. Signage stating that video cameras are in use serves to increase the risk perceived by offenders. Posting signs stating that workers can only access small sums of cash is a way to reduce the reward available to potential offenders. Inherent in stating that workers have limited access to cash is the requirement for a drop safe or time-lock safe, which is a form of increasing the effort required by potential criminals.

Signage priorities include:

•designing signage that synthesizes text, colour and graphics to draw attention to the signs and amplify the overall crime prevention message;

•ensuring that multiple signs are placed in appropriate places (i.e., in locations most likely to be noticed by potential offenders;

5. Late Night (11:00pm to 6:00am) Lone Workers require an Emergency Panic Pendant connected to a 24/7 Central Monitoring Station that can dispatch the Police or RCMP.

Reed Security can help you with this by installing a ULC approved alarm panel and training your staff how to summon for help when needed most.
