Keep your family safe this holiday season

Graydon Security helps homeowners protect what matters

Sponsored by Graydon Security | Impress Branded Content

Tis’ the season to head out of town to visit the in laws and spend more time than usual shopping for that perfect gift. And if we’re really lucky, some of us will fly South for warmer, greener pastures.

While the holiday season is dubbed the ‘most wonderful time of the year,’ it’s also a prime time for break-ins, fires and piping leaks.

Fortunately, one can protect their home-sweet-home and loved ones by investing in the gift of security.

Today’s security systems are designed to enhance, not only your security, but also your lifestyle and convenience, according to Ed Graydon of Graydon Security in Vernon, who has been in the industry for more than 30 years.

“We can now integrate your security system with your smartphone or tablet, adding lighting controls, heating and cooling controls, and even IP based web cameras so that you can remotely watch over your home and assets from afar.”


 

 

Here are just five ways Graydon Security helps homeowners protect what matters when the mercury drops – and year-round.

1-Keep Out Unwanted Holiday ‘Guests’

No, we’re not talking about your great aunt Hilda or meddling mother-in-law. As much as we hate to think about it, home burglary is a reality here in Vernon.

In a recent report to city council, 86 residential break and enters were reported in Vernon over a three-month period between the beginning of July and the end of September.

By investing in a home security system with around-the-clock monitoring, you can better protect your home, valuables, and avoid becoming a statistic.

2- Forget Jack Frost Nipping at Your Home

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, winter 2016-17 is said to be a chilly one. Snow, freezing rain and fluctuating temperatures can wreak havoc on your home, potentially costing you thousands of dollars. This is especially true when it comes to preventing a frozen pipe from bursting, causing a flood in your home. Protect your biggest investment with a security system that offers water and temperature sensors – this feature will alert you to any flooding or freezing at your home. Water sensors can even be set up to cut off the water supply in your absence.

3- It’s Getting Hot in Here

When a Christmas tree fire occurs, it is likely to be serious. Carefully decorating your home can help make your holidays safer, but a security system will give you a better peace of mind. An alarm system that offers fire protection will dispatch the fire department at the first signs of smoke.

4- Who Has Been Naughty and Nice?

Worried your kids or teens are getting into mischief while you’re away at work or the office holiday party? With a Graydon Security system, you can stream live video of your home to your smart phone. This way, you can see the kids coming home from school to make sure they’re safe and sound – and staying out of trouble.

5 – Nix that Nagging Thought

You’re certain(ish) that you locked the front door, but can’t recall if you’ve shut the garage. Rather than stew about it all day or make the trek back home, simply reach for your garage door controller that came with your alarm system from Graydon Security. A garage door controller gives you control over your garage door from wherever you are.  In fact, you can even have access to your front door, which is bound to come in handy when a member of your clan accidentally locks themselves out.

With these five security functions on your alarm system, you can save yourself needless worry, costs and stress.

Graydon Security Systems is now the only full-service security company in the Okanagan to have offices throughout and all over region to truly offer local people, local service. Based here in Vernon, the by-product of combined family businesses, we are now seeing a third generation join our ranks as we approach 45 years of dedicated quality services to protecting people and properties, and making the communities we serve a safer place.
