What does e-commerce mean? 


eCommerce Definition, In a nutshell, eCommerce is just the process of buying and selling produce by electronic means such as by mobile applications and the Internet. E-commerce refers to both online retail as well as electronic transactions and it has hugely increased in popularity over the last decades, and in ways, it's replacing traditional brick and mortar stores.   

eCommerce enables you to buy and sell products on a global scale, twenty-four hours a day without incurring the same overheads as you would with running a brick and mortar store. For the best marketing mix and the best conversion rate, the venture should also have a physical presence; this is better known as a click and mortar store.  


When talking to businesses or our existing clients that want to know more about accepting payments online there are several ways this can be done. We will explain the various options and ways that they can go about accepting payments. Only once we clearly understand what the business is looking to accomplish we can recommend solutions.

Reed Security Share Options For Rental Home And Apartment Security Systems

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!  In their latest alarm and security tip they share options for rental/apartment home security systems.

Reed Security are Trusted SASKATOON ALARM & SECURITY experts


If you have been a renter have you considered an apartment security system?  Whether you rent an apartment or a house, you have options for installing a home security system.  First the facts on burglary. Second the language you’ll need in your lease agreement. And finally, we’ll review the types of security cameras and devices that work for renters.


Did you know renters are 85% more likely to be burglary victims than homeowners? Across the board: renters experience higher rates of burglary (reference).  In general, apartment complexes with 10 or fewer units were more likely to be burglarized than larger ones. Single-family homes fell into the second place. And last, apartments with 10 or more units were the least likely.

Our only point is that renters need to think about home security. Modern security camera systems make it much easier for renters to install them apartments and rental homes. Your rental contract should have a specific clause regarding alterations to your apartment. Typically, the language will read something like this:


TENANT ALTERATIONS:

All alterations, improvements, or additions to the Demised Premises to be made by Tenant shall be subject to the written consent of the Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, provided such alterations and improvements do not weaken the structural integrity of the Building or detract from its dignity and/or uniformity. All alterations and improvements and/or additions made by Tenant shall remain upon the Premises at the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease and shall become the property of the Landlord, unless Landlord shall, at the time of approval of the alteration, provide written notice to Tenant to remove the same, in which event Tenant shall remove such alterations, improvements and/or additions, and restore the Premises.

TIP: GET CONSENT BEFORE YOU INSTALL A RENTAL HOME OR APARTMENT SECURITY SYSTEM


The basic rule of thumb is that you cannot do anything that alters the structure of the building.  Anything you do must be restored to its original condition. Our advice is to let your landlord know what you want to do. Once you have gained their consent, make those changes on your existing lease and both you and your landlord should initial them or add an addendum to your lease. Typical language regarding a rental home or apartment security system will look something like this:


CAN TENANTS PUT HOME SECURITY CAMERAS OUTSIDE THEIR APARTMENT OR RENTAL HOUSE?



Modern home security cameras make it possible for you install them in a rental home or apartment without altering the structure. Cameras can be motion activated, which means you’ll get a text message the second someone triggers them.  Some also have two-way speakers so you can “answer” your door from wherever you are, whether you’re in the backyard or across the globe. If you rent a house, then these cameras are definitely a good option for you.

CAN YOU PUT A SECURITY SYSTEM INSIDE AN APARTMENT?

According residential lease agreements, the inside of your apartment is your private space, which means that as long as you follow the standard rules on alterations, you can install your home security system in an apartment.  Only under strictly outlined circumstances can your landlord enter your home without prior approval, so there should be no expectation of your landlord’s privacy if he or she walks into your apartment. Check your lease to find out what those circumstances are.

Peephole Cameras 

One of the easiest options for renters is to install a door peephole security camera. Like the porch light cameras above work with standard outdoor lights, door peephole security cameras work with your existing peephole set up.


You’ll have to remove the existing peephole, but that’s not difficult at all. One you remove the peephole, your peephole security camera fits right into that hollow space. They are adjustable according to your door’s thickness. And again, like those porch light security cameras we mentioned, they are motion-activated, equipped to send you text messages, and allow you to communicate with the person at your door.

RENTAL HOME AND APARTMENT SECURITY SYSTEMS: FINAL THOUGHTS

Renters are no longer priced out of the market or shut out by their lease agreement in terms of diy home security. You may have only a few options, but they are really good options. Take advantage of that and secure yourself and your belongings.

When you become a Reed Security client you will be entering into a relationship - one they want to grow and become long-term. Last year over half of their business came from word of mouth! 

PRODUCTS:

Installing a security system will decrease the odds of having a break-in by nearly 400%. There are a few more things you can do to keep the odds in your favour, and they offer these security tips to their clients.

Trusted Saskatoon Brags about Treeternity your Trusted Saskatoon & area Memorial Forest

The Trusted Saskatoon Directory Team are ecstatic to welcome Treeternity Memoria Forest to our directory of excellence and brag about what makes their services truly unique. Treeternity is your Trusted Saskatoon memorial forest.  

"Let A Tree Tell Your Story"


When you lose a loved one or have a big occasion in your life you often think of ways to remember or celebrate these moments. What the Trusted Saskatoon Team loves about Treeternity, is that they have a created a beautiful space specifically for this purpose. When asked how the concept of Treeternity was founded this is what Mia had to say.

Well I could never really decide exactly what I want my loved ones to do when the time inevitably comes.  I always thought I would like to donate every organ I possibly can to help in any way but then what would my family do, what would they be left with?  If I were cremated and wanted my ashes spread someplace random would that be it?  My family would not have anywhere to go to remember me if I did that.  I feel like I want to have a memorial place which provides a point of focus for remembrance and I would like that place to be a beautiful, happy, modern place...and with that Treeternity Memorial Forest was born...  I want to be a tree and love the thought of having a tree leave my mark here on Earth. - Mia Hollinger (Owner of Treeternity)


When you purchase a memorial tree...

1. You will have a choice of 4 tree types from which you will choose one. Oak, Maple, Linden or an ornamental flowering crab apple tree.

2. When you purchase a memorial you will choose where you would like to plant your tree from the available 12’x12’ spaces.

3. You will receive a standard 9"x5" FusionCast TM Plaque which will be placed flat in the ground in front of the tree. You will choose your own personal message to be inscribed on the plaque.

4. Planting starts as soon as possible in the spring once the ground is no longer frozen and will plant throughout the season as the weather allows.  On your planting day, you and your loved ones will receive your tree and we will show you to the space you have previously chosen. The plaque will be in place and the area will be ready for you to plant your tree. You are left to do your planting and enjoy the day.  There is a beautiful gazebo on location for you to enjoy.


We spoke to quite a few of Treeternity's clients and we're excited to hear their experiences and what this has meant to them. This is what one of their client's Maureen had to say:


"When Gord's mom passed away ( May 25, 2018) we planted a tree for his parents, giving their wedding date and each of their birth and passing dates. Then I decided to plant a tree for my parents in the same way. We have reserved a spot to plant a tree for ourselves on our 50th which is December 2020...so we will plant it early. That prompted my daughter to think about one for their 20th which is in 2025. We fancy having an entire corner of forest for our family trees. The grandchildren already feel it is their forest. I have recommended Treeternity to others and have found comfort and beauty in this place," - Maureen Haddock 


Treeternity is truly a special place. Whether it is finding a way to remember a loved one or pet after they have passed and the funeral is over or celebrating an anniversary, birthday or another milestone Treeternity is a perfect place. These trees are truly a unique way to cope with difficult times in your life and provide closure for your family. They also are a way to celebrate milestones in your life and watch the tree grow for years to come. 

We are thrilled to give the thumbs up to Mia and Treeternity your Trusted Saskatoon Memorial Forest! See all they do and read client testimonials on Treeternity listing here on the Trusted Saskatoon Directory
