How to Avoid a Break-In

 

1. Get a Reed Security alarm system.

• Packages start at $299 installed

• You qualify for our $5 a Month Monitoring Program - the best deal in all of Canada.

• You receive visible Warning Decals and Yard Sign

• You will be 400% less likely to have a break in.

• You receive a 10% to 20% Insurance Premium discount

• You will have instant Peace of Mind

2. Use common sense.

• If you lose a key, get the locks changed.

• Ask all strangers for identification.

• DO NOT advertise on FaceBook or Twitter that you are on vacation

• Never hide an extra key outdoor - especially underneath a mat or on top of a light fixture. This is the first place the bad guys look. Leave an extra house key with a friend or a neighbor.

3. Make it difficult.

• Door chains are easy to bypass. Install deadbolts.

• Install a stopper or stick on all sliding doors and windows.

• Install window bars on all basement windows.

 • Install exterior motion lights.

4. Break-in's occur when you are away.

• Make sure all doors and windows are properly locked.

• Keep your premises well lit at night. Install timers that turn lights on at different times. This gives the appearance that someone is home.

• You can contrrol your home remotely using ALARM.COM

• If you are going on holidays, have someone look after things such as collecting your mail and newspapers and cutting your lawn.

• Advise our 24/7 Rapid Response Monitoring Stations you will be away.

5. In case you do have a break-in:

• If it looks like a door or window was forced open, do not go inside. The Burglar may still be on site. Call the Police from your cellular phone or from a neighbor's house and wait.

• For insurance purposes, photograph or videotape the contents of your home. Keep all receipts in a safe and easy to find location.

• Write down the model and serial number of all electronics.

Reed Security SASKATOON ALARM & SECRITY experts provides a TRUSTED TIP - Consumer warning

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 

 

CONSUMER ALERT: AVOID DOOR TO DOOR SALESPEOPLE

 

WARNING! High pressure salespeople are currently going door to door throughout Saskatchewan.

Many are pleasant looking and educated university students looking to make some quick cash. (THESE KIDS ARE OFFERED $350 A SALE IN RECRUITMENT ADS). These kids often wear shirts with the Honeywell logo and ask way too many questions about you and your alarm system. Once they have your name they will use it when they talk to your neighbors. Even if you don't sign up, they say you did. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFO!!!

Sales Tactics include :

  • multiple reps at your door
  • blocking you from closing your door
  • will not leave
  • won't take no for an answer and can be very convincing.

DON'T LET THEM IN!!!

The Pitch:

Either your current system is flawed or FREE SYSTEM.

Either way: $0 down or $99 activation, $59.95/mo. or more for 48 months- This is double the price reputable companies charge.

TOTAL ACTUAL COST TO YOU: $2877.60 + taxes

They even told a few people "We work with Reed Security" when they have no connection to us.

These companies want to install your alarm system within hours of misleading you so that you do not have the time to change your mind.

CONSUMER TIPS

1. Alarm system are never FREE

2. A basic alarm system does not have a value of $1500...it is closer to $300

3. Basic monitoring fees in Saskatoon range from $5/mo. to $29.95/mo....do not spend $59.95/mo.

4. Always get 3 quotes...this will give you time to do some research

5. Do not install an alarm system within hours of signing up...this will give you time to think about it and do some research

6. There are several proven Saskatchewan-based companies with offices...These door to door guys do not have offices in Saskatchewan...they are here only for the summer.

7. Check to seeif the business are TRUSTED or if they are listed with the BBB

7. Call the Consumers Protection Branch: 1-888-374-4636

9. Just say "NO" and don't let them into your home

Please pass this info. on to the people you care about so they don't get ripped off!
