What’s in the Box

One Keypad — Unlike other alarms, if a SimpliSafe keypad were smashed, the alarm would continue to function. That’s because SimpliSafe took the “brains” out of the Keypad and put them into the separate Base Station.

One Base Station — Plug-and-play, the Base Station is responsible for sending all your alarm signals to SimpliSafe’s 24/7 alarm monitoring center. Using the same cellular technology that’s in your mobile phone, it includes a SIM card that gets activated when you subscribe to the SimpliSafe alarm monitoring service.

One Motion Sensor — Detects motion within 30 feet. The sensor has a “field of vision” of 90 degrees, giving you a full range of coverage when placed in a corner.

Four Entry Sensors — The sensor detects whenever the magnet moves more than two inches away from it, so it knows whenever the door or window opens. The magnet can be placed up to 2 inches from the sensor, so sensors fit on all types of doors and windows.

One Keychain Remote — Arm and disarm your alarm with a push of a button. Set your alarm to away after you leave to protect your home. Simply press off to disarm your system as you approach your front door. Pressing the panic button alerts SimpliSafe’s Emergency Monitoring Center that you need help fast.

I write this from conviction that people thinking of investing in this alarm system alternative need a more thoughtful review than the many here who quickly post a gushing review and the few who post nonsense negative reviews.1st Simplisafe is easy to install yourself and it is a quality budget alternative to the big alarm system companies (who rely on less than ethical sales methods) who relieve people of a few thousand dollars and lock them into an expensive 2 to 3 year monitoring contract.

The hardware is easy to install and get working & for less than $400 most people can seriously discourage felons from targeting their home. Simplisafe is much more up front & consumer oriented than other alarm companies BUT Simplisafe sales department does do its share of hype & exaggeration. You cannot install the sensors & motion detectors in the mindless simple way you are lead to believe. If you slap them up in a few minutes, you will regret it. Take a few minutes and determine the best places to position the sensors & detectors.

The advertising shows people just mindlessly sticking sensors and detectors around their house. Then, in response to criticism that people report their senors or detectors fell off, Simplisafe blames it on the owner for not (dah…) cleaning the area first. Even that is hype because cleaning is not enough. It’s not wise to just rely on the sticky tape for the heavier pieces, especially the keypad and the motion detectors. Simplisafe techs know this which is why each sensor has a removable installation panel with two screw holes and screws.

There are two significant flaws in the Simplisafe system which Simplisafe advertising and information tip toes around and buyers do not realize until after they buy and install their system.

It was easy to set up (you do need to reed the included instructions, but they are easy)!
Set up took me about an hour. I did spent 15 min reading the included manual.
Then it took me another 30 min for the installation of the main unit and all the sensors.
I used my drill and just drilled all the motion sensors to the upper corners of the walls
where I needed them (screws are included). Then I attached all the door sensors the all the doors
using the included 2-sided stickers, and I added pieces of tape just in case the sticker glue doesn’t
last very long.Then I spend another 15 min for playing with the settings of the main unit – I made the settings to my liking,
including adding phone numbers for both making a phone call and sending a text in case the alarm is triggered.
I am using an AT&T SIM card. I tested it and it works great. Every time the alarm is triggered the main unit will call the number (my cell phone) and also send me a text.For thos of you wondering what kind of SIM card it is using – regular, micro or nano – it uses the regular SIM.
That info I couldn’t find anywhere online, and only found after I received the unit and opened it.Also – all sensors included in this package are per-registered to the unit. You don’t have to do anything but turn them on and they are already working with the main unit. The motion sensors have an ON/OFF button. The door sensors don’t have an ON/OFF button. You don’t have to install all included sensors, only install as many as you need. If you have some left over (not needed) just don’t put the batteries in them and/or leave them in OFF position. By the way – each sensor comes with its own battery included. If you need extra sensors just buy them separately.Read more ›

I purchased one of these units from directly from fortresssecuritystore.com, and I couldn’t be happier with the product. I work nights, and my wife was nervous to stay home with the kids by herself. After comparing this system to the “big name” companies, it was really a no-brainier.With this system, you will get much more secure coverage for a fraction of the cost. The unit comes with ten wireless contacts, and THREE motion sensors. Any of the major remote-monitoring companies in my area came with two contacts and one motion sensor. Each additional window contact was $50-75, and an extra motion sensor would set you back $175, I’m not joking. Fortress, by comparison, sells additional window contacts for $13, and motion sensors for $23 (the system can handle up to 99)The ability to call and text out from the unit works flawlessly. I do not have, or want, a $30 per month land-line, and this system has the ability to use a GSM wireless card. There are plenty of options from major cell carriers, but we chose to get a SIM card from mobalfreedom.com, a British-based company. There is a plan with an option to pay only for the calls/texts you use, and our monthly cost has never exceeded $5.For using the alarm while home, the siren is excruciatingly loud, and will alert ANY homeowner to an intrusion. Combine that with a firearm which is accessible, and you have excellent peace-of-mind. The system is very sensitive (in a good way), and we have yet to have a false alarm. If you are NOT home, the callout feature contacts you as soon as the alarm trips, in literally a couple seconds. You can then disable the system, listen in via your phone, or even communicate with the wall-unit. Or you can simply hang up and call police immediately.Read more ›

Choosing a Security System

Types of Security Systems

New Technology today has given the security industry an enormous ability to be more in touch with your security system in your home or business.

images32234423

Alarm companies that monitor your system are sometimes located in a different state. There are also local Central Stations that are located in your state.

What kind of system do you want installed? Choosing a Security System is difficult sometimes. Maybe you want to order a, Do It Yourself kit. Or you want a professional installation.

There are some Home automation companies that offer security systems. So if you want to turn on lights and open doors. You would search for a home automation company.

Communication of your System


stock-illustration-59616118-linear-office-phone-circle-iconThere are three ways your system can communicate to your central station.  There is Broadband, Cellular or on Landlines.

Landline  communication is when your system uses a phone line to communicate to the central station. The system can be a wireless system but its only way of communicating is a landlines

Some landline system have to communicate  with a analog line and some VOIP(Voice Over IP) lines might not work with the system. Specially the older alarm systems need to detect at least 40 plus volts on the line. This type of service Apps to arm or disarm might not be available.

stock-illustration-39331876-smartphone-apps-infographics Cellular system uses a cellular connection to communicate to the central station.   Personally  i think this option is the best. There is no way the thief can cut your alarm communication.

Most of the time nowadays you get a free app for your smartphone to control alarm system. The app communicates to your alarm system thru your cellular connection on alarm system.

 

unifore_security

Broadband when alarm is triggered sends a signal through your cable or broadband connection.  faster then landline but not as reliable as cellular.

The Broadband leader of alarm system is Comcast. they offer many features with there system. There app includes cameras as well. Arming and disarming . Lock and unlock doors and other automated services.

How do you want your Alarm system installed?


Professional installation you would pay  more but you know the system would get installed correctly. A alarm system has to be installed properly in order for it to function correctly.  False alarm can become costly if the alarm system is sending erroneous signals.

Motion detectors installed facing windows can cause false alarms. Some motion detectors send an alarm when trigger by a sudden change of temperature. Like sun heating up the window on a warm summer afternoon.

images4454

Installer would know what would be best for that opening he is protecting.  Some installation don’t go as planed sometimes and troubleshooting is required. That’s when a Pro comes in handy.

This type of installation usually requires you to have some one home on the day of the installation.

DIY installation  the best thing about it you don’t get charge for installation . You can install it with out taking a day off work. On a weekend at night when ever.

5511

Sometimes this type of installation they charge you more for the equipment. There is only a few companies that provide this type of installation.

So its kind up to you when choosing the installation type. Make the right choice or seek professional advise.Choosing a Security System is important.Choosing a the right Security System  is a Must.

Be Aware of Home Security Scams

 stock-illustration-45355880-set-of-stampsYou want to feel your safe at home. You know having a reliable security system is on your list to do. So if a Salesman all of a sudden shows up at your door, offering you a security system with a convincing sales pitch you tend to jump right on it with out checking first.

But be aware security systems that security salesman has to offer. The FTC(Federal Trade Commission) The nation’s consumer protection agency. The state attorney as well are warning you to be aware of these sales people tactics.

Before you let anyone in your home. You must first ask for an I.D. with there picture and name on it. Many states and cities you are supposed to get an alarm system certification to be able to sell security systems or work on them.

One ofCaptureqwqw the main reason this form of certification was created. People were impersonating an alarm salesman and then returning back and robbing people.

For Example in Florida i have two Alarm System Agent Card. One for Fire and one for Burglar Alarms. You must attend a renewal course every 2 years. So you have to make sure you check ID’s and licenses are up to date.



How to know if your getting scammed



Usually salespeople will use a variety of ways to persuade you to buy there alarm system and there monitoring services. Most of these salesman that try to scam you have no guilty conscience what so ever. Here is some tactics they use:

  • One of the commend ways is the “YOU NEED TO ACT NOW”. or ‘FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY AND YOU GET IT FOR FREE”. First of all, none of it is for free.  Usually is either increased in your monthly bill to pay for it. Then with it they increase you contract term. for example . from 3 to 5 years. So at the end you pay more interest.
  • They will try to pressure you in many different ways. They might refuse to leave. It’s not impolite to ask a salesman out of your house. If he refuses to leave and you feel trap. Call the Police.
  • Another way is they try to scare you and tell about robberies in your area that really haven’t occur.
  • If you have a sign outside your house that you have a security system, Some door to door salesman knock on your door and claim there from your alarm company and there upgrading your system. They will put a different system and make you sign a long term contract.
  • Other things they might say is,your company has gone under and we are taking over the account.

How do i know the Alarm company is legit?


There’s a few ways to check if the company or person you are dealing with is a real company or not. The FTC and Attorney General urge you to ask the following questions:

  • Contractor’s name
  • Street address (no P.O. Box)
  • Telephone number
  • Contractor’s license number
  • State that issued the license
  • Name under which the license is filed

If they don’t want to fork over that type of information. Then is time you raise your red flag and ask them to please leave your premises.If they do give you information. Use these links to check there information:

 

usa_logo_white_with_bg xnascla_logo.png.pagespeed.ic.JEuUWuNerj

logo-naagad-button-locator

 

Type of Home Security system Do you Want?


First thing you should do is as close friends,co-workers,neighbors and relatives if they heard of the companies you are currently researching and ask what alarm companies they have. And if they don’t mind telling you a little about them. Try to dig as much information about the company you are looking into doing business with.

Get written estimates of what is going to cost you to install system and monthly fee. Make sure you always read those little star quotes in the fine print. Ask a lot of questions and you always check what the other companies are offering.

Have they had any false alarm issues and how has the company dealt with it? Did they charge for coming to service the alarm?If they did how much was it?

I have been servicing alarm system for more then 25+ years. The most common thing i saw in the home security world was the poor training that was given after the initial installation.

Many times installers do a great job but forget the little thing like teaching the customer everything about the system. Not just how to turn it on and off. Make sure the company doing the installation is license to do so. Check with the National Association of State Contractors Licensing Agencies for the agency in your state.xnascla_logo.png.pagespeed.ic.JEuUWuNerj

Make sure you check how long your signing a contract for. Most monitoring contracts do not include a service plan. Service plans are usually offer with a different form if not included with your monitoring.

If you sign a service contract. ask if it covers after hour service. Most service contracts are only Monday thru Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. If does not cover after hours service,how much does the after hour service cost?

Make sure your system has a battery back up for Power failures. If the house looses Power your security system is backed up by batteries to keep security system running. Does your company offer services like smoke and fire detection, remote control, video surveillance, email notifications and special apps for smart phones?hand-with-app

In some cities you must register alarm with the county or the police department. You would have to check with your local authorities and see what are your options. Remember there’s laws that protect you. After you sign a contract many times you have up to 3 days to cancel it before it goes into effect.

You don’t have to give a reason either. Check with your state laws and the consumer protection agency, Make sure you ask salesman what if you want to cancel within that period.

There’s ways you can avoid all this. By installing a do it yourself alarm system. Wireless systems are more reliable then ever. Very easy to install. You don’t have to take a day off.

Cyber Security

stock-photo-31068622-safety-concept-cyber-security-on-digital-backgroundCybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. In a computing context, the term security implies cybersecurity.

The New Cyber criminals have now ways to get backed up by Criminal organizations and or radical political groups.

Today’s Cyber criminal have more resources available to plan an Attack and have more technical knowledge. Most of these groups are not motivated by money alone.They are better organized and have funds available to them in many different ways.

stock-photo-3413560-teen-boy-in-the-darkThis is not just a kid in the basement breaking into big corporations for kicks and giggles.

New criminals know what to do with the stolen data they just got a hold of. The kid in the basement would not know what to do with that data.

Criminal organization knows exactly what to do or who to sell stolen intellectual property to on the gray or black market. Criminal organizations and nation-states have far greater financial resources than independent individuals.

Some of these organizations would look like a legitimate business with an office. Equipped with cubicles for computer operators( Cyber-criminals Station).  A receptionist to take calls from customer there scamming.That phone number they just called probably changes the next day.stock-photo-42016610-group-of-business-people-discussing-network-security

Not only do we face more sophisticated adversaries today, but the types of information of value to them are continually expanding as well.

These groups can do interesting things with the most seemingly innocuous bits of information.

The way attack strategies are design nowadays is not a direct attack against a high value server.

The new cyber criminal attacks a certain individual on the server there planning to break into. This is done by getting an individual to click an infested link.

stock-photo-31670732-hacker-programing-in-technology-enviroment-with-cyber-iconsResulting in the users computer getting infected by malware . At this point the malware acts as a control point so the attacker can gain root access to users  computers.

This malware most likely be running in the background. The attacker now has a control point inside the network. Allowing to further expand there attack.

“The key here is that instead of malware and network exploits being separate disciplines as they were in the past, they are now integrated into an ongoing process”.’ Key components of the advanced attack strategy include infection, persistence, communication, and command and control.”  …Resource: Cybersecurity For Dummies, Palo Alto Networks

Once the attacker has a hold of the shell access. First thing they do is exploit the target. After this, they deliver the malware in the background through the app that’s open already or connection.

stock-photo-42348230-virus-attackIn fact, based on its own research, Palo Alto Networks has found that as much as 90 percent of unknown or targeted malware capable of avoiding traditional antivirus technology is delivered from real-time web applications as opposed to corporate e-mail.

Normally attacks that are targeted will develop its own unique type of malware. Since these attacks are specifically customized for that specific target.These attacks are hard to detect. They avoid security by avoiding traditional antivirus detection.

The Primary role of malware attacks plays a central role in the attackers arsenal. An the life cycle of the attack. Cyber criminals have found waysstock-photo-62866222-malware-wordcloud-concept-illustration to deliver malware undetected. Hiding malware communications (with encryption), and avoiding traditional signature-based detection.

These attacks are sophisticated but they do have there vulnerabilities of their own. Today’s threats are networked threats that need your network to communicate. If a threat can’t communicate, the attack can be largely neutralized.

Also there is numerous opportunities exist in your network to detect. The fact that the attack has multiple steps to accomplish full attack.  If an attacker can infect targets, persist on, communicate with, and manage infected hosts, then the attacker can do almost anything.

Organizations need to focus on expanding visibility beyond the network perimeter — both inward and outward. This is best accomplished with network segmentation and a next-generation firewall to enforce central controls on internal and external (such as remote and mobile access) network traffic.

stock-photo-23331063-cyber-attack-headline The sky is NOT falling! Today’s threats are not so advanced that they are impossible to control. They are not completely new, just more common and better organized. Solutions do exist, and organizations can adopt best practices and adapt to changes in the threat landscape. Don’t fall into a trap. The attackers have evolved, but security has as well.

Summer Firework Safety

Summer is here and its warmer then ever. Parents keep the fun in summer by keeping your child safe under the sun, the water, and the great outdoors.

With the Fourth of July coming up .Summer can be a fun time with great memories. So this is the time to make sure everyone in the family is aware of Fireworks safety.

imagesdwererwe

Firework Safety


Fireworks can cause serious injuries if not handle properly.You can get burn and you can have some serious eye injuries as well.

imagesrrr

To me the number one way to stay  safe from fireworks and protect your family is not to use any fireworks at home — period.

Attend public fireworks displays, and leave the lighting to the professionals.

In some areas you are not allowed to. Make sure you check with your local police department. Sometimes if there’s a bad drought and fire can easily start. They will not allowed fireworks to be used.

 Safety Tips to Keep in Mind


  • Kids should never play with fireworks.If you give kids sparklers, make sure they keep them outside and away from the face, clothing, and hair. Sparklers can reach 1,800°F (982°C) — hot enough to melt gold.Fireworks-Safety-Tips-628x290
  • Make Sure Fireworks you buy are legal. Firework that is legal,will have a label with the manufacturer’s name and directions.
  • Illegal ones are usually called some crazy names like the Doubleheader or M1000.These explosives were banned in 1966, but still account for many fireworks injuries.
  • Steer clear of others — fireworks have been known to backfire or shoot off in the wrong direction
  • Don’t hold fireworks in your hand or have any part of your body over them while lighting
  • Point fireworks away from homes, and keep away from brush and leaves and flammable substances. The National Fire Protection Association estimates that local fire departments respond to more 50,000 fires caused by fireworks each year.
  • Soak all fireworks in a bucket of water before throwing them in the trash can.
  • Think about your pet. Animals have sensitive ears and can be extremely frightened or stressed on the Fourth of July

imagesdog

  • Never try to make your own fireworks.
  • Never throw or point fireworks at someone.
  • Wear some sort of eye protection, and avoid carrying fireworks in your pocket
  • Don’t allow kids to pick up pieces of fireworks after an event
  • Light one firework at a time (not in glass or metal containers), and never relight a dud

If a child is injured by fireworks, immediately go to a doctor or hospital. If an eye injury occurs, don’t allow your child to touch or rub it, as this may cause even more damage.

4100366_G

Also, don’t flush the eye out with water or attempt to put any ointment on it.

Instead, cut out the bottom of a paper cup, place it around the eye, and immediately seek medical attention — your child’s eyesight may depend on it.

Fireworks are meant to be enjoyed, but you’ll enjoy them much more knowing your family is safe. Take extra precautions this Fourth of July and your holiday will be a Great Time.

Most alarm companies that have Monitoring center. Usually received signals from your Home or Business security systems.

When the alarm has been activated from a  particular door,window or some other type of interior alarm sensor.

security-alarm-701675-mIn order to verify that signal, they call the Home or Business to see if it is a False alarm or not.

If you answer the phone they will ask you for a password. If you say the wrong word, the Police unit will get dispatched.

Or if you don’t answer the phone the Police gets dispatched.

After the Monitoring center gets no answer from you, there sending the police assuming there is a real break in.

But there not really sure ,because you didn’t answer the phone and told them it was a false alarm.

Sometimes Pets have to do with some of your false alarms. Like our cat burglar on the right.

A Verify Security System is more efficient when it comes determining if the signal is a false alarm.

The way a signal gets verify is either by Audio verification or Visual verification.

Audio Verification


Audio Verification is done by using Impact or Glass break Audio sensors that activate once it hears noise or glass is broken.

As soon as this happens the Security System alerts the Monitoring Center and they start listening for any suspicious sounds.

Then they decide if they need to alert the Police once they get Verification that there is a unauthorized person at the premises.

Visual Verification

Very low percentage. Most of them offer the ability for you to see your own cameras via your phone app.

But there’s is no alarm system to activate and alert you,when you need to look at them.

The Monitoring center are monitoring your alarm system.

The way visual verification is done by installing Motion sensor or a Photo Beam that gets activated when an intruder goes by the area cover by the sensors.

Once this happens. The Alarm system alerts the video server onsite to start recording event. The event gets to the Monitoring Center with an Alarm signal including Video clip.

Wireless burglar alarm systems

In the Old days wireless Burglar alarm systems. Where not really relied on. The Batteries would run out quicker then the alarm company told you it would.

If the neighbor down the street had the same House Id on there wireless system. Your door would trigger his alarm and his door could trigger yours.

When your testing the system and cops show up to the neighbors house. That is when you knew you had the wrong house id. You need it to change it right of way.

But today with Technology we don’t have that problem. Every single wireless device that’s used in Today’s wireless Burglar Alarm systems.

Has it’s own unique Serial Number. There are many different types of wireless devices from different manufacturers.

41zDbHHsxFLBut normally the alarm system your are installing or getting installed. Only works with certain type wireless devices.

Transmitters provide the most reliable, convenient and cost effective solutions for security protection.

These devices are powerful and versatile enough to help solve even the toughest, most labor intensive installations.

With a demonstrated outdoor range of over a mile. (Based On the 5800 series Sensor from Honeywell)

Most transmitters come with 2 zones.One zone is a hardwired input terminal where you insert wires from door or window contacts.

The other zone is usually just a magnet next to transmitter. Reed switch is located on the wireless sensor board.Close to the edge inside the transmitter.
Wireless Motion work a little different then transmitters. Since there job is to detect motion. They have  to conserve battery life more then a normal door sensor. Door sensor only transmits when the door or window is open.

5800PIR-RES-1Wireless motion detector transmits when motion is detected.

But after it sends the signal,the motion detector turns itself off for 3 minutes.

After 3 minutes the motion comes back in the stand by type mode waiting for motion again, before it transmits the signal again.

Depending on the brand of motion your using. Times will vary and the way it operates to.

What to do when Password is stolen.

 

Most of us don’t practice good password management. To many times we would not create a unique password. We don’t care about creating a unique password each time a password is required.

It becomes a concern when a huge site that has a large amount of members gets hacked. If you are the type that uses the same password for everything.

You could be putting yourself at risk. Guess what? the bad guys know this.

images22222images3424432

I did some research and found ways you can protect yourselves if you think your password has been stolen. Because we can’t control website password practices.

Change your password .It is not as simple as you think. You must change the password for every account you used the same password. Now you got to think about what data did the hackers where exposed to.

There some people like to store all there information in there e-mail folders. Lets say you send it your self a password list so you can remember all your passwords.

The hacker got a hold of your email password now, he has access to all your other passwords.

If you think your accounts password for your Bank,Utilities  or any other places have been affected.

Make sure you call them and check if there’s been any activity.  Keep a record of everyone you have spoken to.

Is suggested you keep backups of your contacts. Criminals would erase your contact list so you can’t warn them of the scam.

Spread the word to Relatives and friends first, that your account has been compromised.

If you can Monitor your bank activities or if you have some kind of credit monitoring service that monitors your credit..

When using passwords use strong passwords.  You can save yourself  a big head ache just by using strong passwords.

Don’t use a simple password for everything. Use movie lines or catchy phrases you heard. Changed them them into a passwords.

Get creative at the same time,find a way to remember them.

blue eye crime watch Check the House for Security.  Make sure All windows and door have proper locking mechanism. Before you start moving in you want to make sure you the sliding glass doors for proper locking. In the case of French doors or any other type of back door,make sure is locks properly.

If you feel the Doors have weak spot or they look worn out from the weather. You should replace it immediately or as soon as possible.  Check patio doors and Balcony doors if they are secure.

After you move in. You might want to walk around neighborhood and meet your new neighbors. Making friends with neighbors is important. They can watch your home when you are away.

Make sure Motion detectors are installed properly and you have adequate Glass breakage  coverage.

Not all system that come with the house have this protection. If you didn’t get Glass coverage with system get it installed.

If you can afford to get a video surveillance system. I highly recommend getting one.  sometimes scare off potential thieves.

But remember having a camera system only is not enough to keep your home secure. Some Thieves can spot cameras and disable them.
