Home Security & Control FAQ

Q: I’m using the router provided by my internet service provider for WiFi in my entire home, is my Wifi good enough for the wireless smart devices you install?
A: We would have to check the range of your WiFi and speeds you are getting in the locations you may want to use your smart devices. We find that most people cannot just use a router from their ISP to provide WiFi in their entire home. We have some solutions that can help with coverage, using access points.
Q: Does having a security system really make me safer?
A: Homes with no security systems are up to 300% more likely to be broken into. Considering how homes with no security systems in place are 300% more likely to be burglarized than those without one, even the simplest security system that you can install on your own is better than having none, FBI crime stats point out. Close to three-quarters of failed burglaries are due to an alarm that goes off and scares the burglars away. The rest of the homes that get broken into and then abandoned mid-heist are likely to have a dog or a person in the house that the burglars didn’t count on running into.

Q: Do I need to have a LAN line to have a security system?
A: The short and simple answer is no. Most of the security systems we install now utilize a cellular radio. We test the unit on site to ensure we have a strong and reliable signal. It uses either the AT&T or Verizon network.
Q: I have an older home, is putting a reliable security system in possible?
A: Yes. We have a number of different methods getting wires where we need in a discreet fashion. We also use wireless devices that work very well and are inconspicuous where hardwired is impossible.
Q: I want to have a 4k viewing experience, what do I need to do?
A: To view anything in 4k all of your equipment will have to be 4k compliant, including HDMI cables. All your equipment should be HDCP2.2 capable. Without that you will not be able to take advantage of your new 4k TV.
