March Newsletter

Spring is just around the corner, even if it doesn’t feel like it with the snow we’ve been having. And with Spring coming up, that means Daylight Savings Time begins. This Sunday, don’t forget to set your clocks forward one hour.

Changing your clocks is a great reminder to test both your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in your home – and remember, carbon monoxide detectors should be replaced every five years, and smoke detectors every ten years – look for a label with the manufactured date to be sure.

Tips to Troubleshoot the Most Common Issues with Your Home Security System




Chances are, you initially installed a home security system to protect your property from the many threats present today. However, there are a wide array of issues that can limit how effective your system is, and potentially put your family’s safety and well-being at risk.

Malfunctions are both annoying and frustrating, but depending on where you live, this may even result in you have to pay significant fines.

If you want to avoid some of the most common home security system issues, then the best thing you can do is get to know what these issues are. Keep reading to learn more.

Ignoring system gaps. Far too many homeowners purchase a basic alarm system to reduce their price. However, the “bare bones” solution may leave specific areas without adequate protection. An experienced burglar may access the weak areas and use them to their benefit. The best way to ensure adequate protection is to work with the professionals to have the right security solution implemented.

Not making the system tamper-proof. The internet-based security systems used in homes today require passwords to operate and access them. Just like with your computer, a hacker can not only infiltrate, but also disable your system and may even be able to steal your personal information – unless you change the password on a regular basis.

Not updating your system. The security needs of your home are going to change over time. If you don’t reprogram your system from time to time, like after you have added on to your house or after a rather large renovation, it may result in the system not functioning properly. You should also have a professional take a look at the system from time to time to ensure it is still able to meet your needs.

If you want a home alarm system to continue protecting your home and your family, be sure to keep the issues here in mind and take the appropriate steps as needed.

Do you provide care for someone with special needs? If so, you may find it challenging to balance work and other time constraints while making sure the person in your charge receives the attention they need. There’s also the continuous worry about the individual’s safety and well-being – especially if you have to leave them alone for extended periods of time.




A great way to ease some of this stress and worry is by investing in and relying on smart home technology. Some of the ways this technology can be beneficial for your situation are listed here.

Remote monitoring. With smart technology, you can set up cameras inside of your home, and use your mobile device as a way to check in on the special need’s individual. With this system, you can see what is going on around the house at any time. This will give you peace of mind while you are away.

System operation and automating device. There are some situations where the person may not have the ability to operate locks, thermostats and other system features without help. With smart technology, you (the caregiver) can remotely control and reprogram all these devices.

Increased safety. Individuals with special needs may not have the ability to defend themselves if an intruder came into the house. With smart technology, you have assurance that the individual is safe in the home. For example, you can install a doorbell camera, which will allow them to see who is at the door without having to open it.

With smart home technology, you have help when caring for someone with special needs. Considering using these features to see how beneficial they can be.
