Business Alarm Holiday Protection

Business Alarms Holiday Protection from Rendin Alarm.
Ensure Your Business Alarm Holiday Protection is in Place

When closed for the Holidays you want to make sure your Business Alarm Holiday Protection is working. Most people think of the holidays as a time to relax and unwind—but for many business owners, it’s the most stressful time of the year. At Rendin Alarm in Folsom, Pa we will ensure your business is protected.

Nearly 20% of all retail sales happen in November and December, which means that the holidays are make-or-break time. There’s no shortage of extra work, from hiring seasonal staff to managing employee vacation time to stocking up on holiday inventory. And, as if that weren’t enough, there’s the pandemic to contend with.

Rendin Alarm for Business can help you make things a little easier.

Make Holiday Staffing a Snap

Retail stores alone add upwards of half a million temporary workers every holiday season. That’s a lot of user codes to update.

Whether you’re a mom and pop operation that needs to onboard a few new employees, or a regional chain that needs to bulk-add hundreds of users, our platform makes it quick and painless. You can even set your codes or access cards to expire automatically when they’re no longer needed, giving you more time to spend with your family once the rush is over.

Keep Customers and Employees Protected

On top of the usual seasonal activity, business owners are responsible for keeping employees and customers safe in the middle of a pandemic this year, with an array of constantly shifting local and state rules to navigate.

Our innovative platform can help you regain some control over this stressful situation. You can buzz in vendors and customers remotely, monitor live video to ensure that employees are keeping their masks on, and check access logs to ensure that your cleaning crews are hitting all the places they’re supposed to, while minimizing unnecessary contact by managing things remotely through your mobile app or web dashboard.

Keep Tabs on Your Operations from Anywhere

While some companies are taking on new staff for the holidays, others are running on skeleton crews so that employees can take holiday leave. Rendin Alarm’s integrated video, intrusion, access control and temperature monitoring dashboard ensures that you can keep tabs on your business from anywhere, which becomes even more valuable when you’re a few employees down.

Safe for the Holidays

Protect Yourself and be Safe for the Holidays!

With Rendin Alarm, You will be Safe for the Holidays!

Today more than ever, we need to be safe for the Holidays. Safe from Covid, safe from fraud and safe from theft. Rendin Alarm Company in Morton, PA wants to help keep you safe from theft. And in keeping with our series, here are some more helpful safety tips!

1: Start with security cameras

Two-thirds of homeowners worry that their home is more attractive to criminals during the holidays. There are plenty of ways to deter those criminals, though. One of the most visible and useful is security cameras, which send a clear message to potential intruders that you’ve taken action to protect yourself.

2: Make friends in the right places

It’s the perfect time to re-connect with your neighbors; not just for the feeling of community, but to team up against neighborhood crime. By keeping an eye out for each other, you’ll make your own homes safer too.

3: Give your packages plenty of protection

With so many people buying gifts online to avoid the crowds, even more packages will pile up on doorsteps across the country this year. A doorbell camera and smart lock can help keep your packages safe.

4: Simplify your home security routine

Did you know that most days, one in three homeowners worry that they didn’t lock their house? Holiday excitement makes it especially easy to forget things like checking all the doors and security system before running an errand. Don’t worry: we have solutions for you.

5: Enjoy the coziness but watch the candles

Decorating and cooking are some of the best parts of the holidays, but they bring seasonal fire risks. Make safe choices, like choosing flame resistant holiday decorations, and be sure to replace any worn or broken cords or loose bulbs. Always turn off light strings and other decorations before leaving the house or going to bed.

6: Look out for your loved ones

Even before the pandemic, 7 in 10 adults with parents over 60 felt concerned that they couldn’t visit them frequently enough. At the end of 2020, the feeling is universal. Call them or even monitor them in their home with Rendin Alarm’s connectivity capabilities.

Holiday Security Tips

Protect Your Home with these Great Holiday Tips!

If you’re concerned about holiday security and looking to step up your crime prevention game for the season, start with these smarter home holiday security tips.

1: It’s easier than you think to deter a burglar.

Have you ever wondered if your home security system will really keep a burglar away? According to the experts, it will. 83 percent of burglars look for them, and 60 percent say they’ll go elsewhere if they spot one.

This means that it pays to make your security system visible. You can do this by adding smart outdoor security cameras, placing stickers and yard signs where they’re easily spotted, or automating your outdoor lights to put prowlers in the spotlight.

Don’t have any of these features? Get a home security upgrade from Rendin Alarm Company.

2: Avoid leaving gifts out for package thieves.

Not all holiday crime involves breaking and entering. With more Americans shopping for gifts online every year, the holidays have become prime time for package theft.

If you’re concerned about your gifts falling into the hands of a porch pirate, it’s worth investing in a home security setup that includes a doorbell camera and smart lock. This gives you the ability to secure any package delivery in seconds, using only your phone. It’s an easier alternative to staying home for valuable deliveries, and far smarter than leaving things to chance.

3: Safeguard against security mistakes when you travel.  

Half of homeowners worry more about home security when they travel—and with good reason. The hustle and bustle of a holiday road trip leaves plenty of room for security mistakes like leaving your garage open or front door unlocked, or forgetting to turn your alarm on.

If you own a modern security system, be sure to set up a few smartphone alerts and reminders before you travel this year. You’ll know if you forget anything essential, and you’ll often be able to fix the problem without having to return home.

4: Connect with your neighbors for peace of mind.

Not every holiday security safeguard needs to be hi-tech. Teaming up with your neighbors is a simple and effective way to stay safe and worry less over the holidays. It’s also one of the most popular home security measures: this year, more than half of US homeowners will keep an eye on their neighbors’ homes when they travel.

If you’re teaming up with your neighbors this year, consider trading in your spare keys for a smart lock. While you may not be among the 20% of homeowners who lost their house keys this year, a smart lock with temporary user codes is worth it to ensure that no one else loses them for you.

5: Think beyond the holidays for long-term protection.

Not all home security technology is the same. If you’re looking for year-round, whole-home protection, it’s worth doing some research before hopping online to buy a standalone doorbell camera as a quick fix. It’ll cover your front door, but not much else. 

A complete smart  security system gives you many more ways keep your home and family safe–such as professional monitoring for emergencies, connected smoke and carbon monoxide detectors for safety, and safeguards like unexpected activity alerts and “crash and smash” protection.

Security for Home Schooled Children

Remote Access to Security for Home Schooled Children!

Remote Access Security for Home Schooled Children

Today’s Covid-19 challenges spawned a need for security for home schooled children. Parents today are trying to manage their kids being home in a time where the parents were either working themselves or running errands. But now parents are facing the challenge of trying to manage both. Furthermore, how do they manage when they must run out for an emergency or errand or quick meeting? The solution is remote access technology from Rendin Alarm Company in Delco, PA.

Some kids are back to school and parents need to manage their safe return home. Here’s a few tips to help with these security issues:

1: A smart lock makes everyone’s day easier. 

If your kids are leaving or arriving home on their own this year, adding a smart lock to your security system is a worthwhile investment.

Better security: Kids are forgetful, particularly on busy mornings. With a smart lock, if they forget to lock up as they leave, you can use your phone to lock the door.

After-school flexibility: If a sudden schedule change means that you need a sitter or neighbor to watch your kids at home, you can let them in without having to be there.

No keys required: A smart lock lets you give your family numerical user codes instead of distributing keys. If anyone forgets their code, you can unlock the door for them. Should anyone share their code accidentally—the digital equivalent of a missing door key—you can delete it and create a different one in seconds.

2: Try these alerts for peace of mind.

Your smart home security system can keep you in the know on your kids’ whereabouts, no matter where you are. Take a few minutes to set up these alerts.

User code alert: Get a notification when a specific user code is used to unlock the door. If you’ve given everyone their own code, you’ll be able to know exactly who’s coming and going.

No-show alert: This alert does the opposite, letting you know when someone hasn’t used their code by a specified time. If your kids are running late, or forget to tell you they’re visiting a friend after school, this alert is a useful prompt for you to check in.

Video alerts: Seeing is believing. A video clip from an outdoor, indoor or doorbell camera, triggered by a user code, gives you extra confirmation that your kids are home safe. Plus… you can see if they brought friends with them too.

3: An indoor camera can help you manage your home classroom.

If your kids are learning virtually this fall, keeping everyone on track is going to be a major challenge. That includes you, too—it’s important to stay focused.

If you’re already getting up from your desk every 10 minutes to help with a math question or IT issue, you’ll appreciate an indoor camera with two-way voice.

Positioned within reach of your kids, this type of camera doubles as an intercom for your home classroom. If anyone needs help, they can reach you on your Alarm.com app by pushing the camera’s Talk button, and even show you a question they’re stuck with. Meanwhile, you’ll be able check in on your home classroom discreetly during Zoom calls.

4: A doorbell camera protects you from daytime distractions.

It won’t take much home-schooling to understand what every teacher knows: distractions are the enemy. A knock on the door will disrupt any classroom within seconds, including yours. That’s where your powered doorbell camera comes in.

Instead of knocking, a visitor need only press the doorbell (which you can silence) to reach you at your desk. You’ll be able to see and talk to the visitor through your app instead of going to the door. Package delivery? Just ask the driver to leave it on the step: your kids can collect it on their next break.

VoIP and Alarm Systems

System Compatibility between VoIP and Alarm Systems
Do Security Systems work with VoIP?

It depends on the VoIP and Alarm Systems. VoIP is Voice over Internet Protocol. The two most important considerations are the way that your VoIP security system communicates with the monitoring center, and how the VoIP service gets power.

Many security systems depend on standard telephone lines to connect to the monitoring center. Alarm system signals travel as a “sound” along copper wire, just like the buzzing noise of a fax machine or dial-up modem.

VOIP is more like a broadband connection; your voice is converted into digital data at your home and “streamed” over your Internet connection to the listener at the other end. Each VoIP provider uses slightly different technology to accomplish this, not all of which are compatible with every security system. The signal sent out by your VoIP service may not be recognized by the monitoring center as an alarm signal.

Compared to standard phone lines (often known as POTS, for Plain Old Telephone Service) VoIP has another critical consideration: backup power. When you lose electrical power to your home, by natural causes, or intentionally caused by intruders, any device without battery backup will be useless. Any professional security system will have its own dedicated battery backup for just such a situation, and standard phone lines work just fine without power, but most homes don’t have a similar backup for their digital phones or Internet connections.

What are the Solutions?

VoIP phones depend on that Internet connection, and cutting off the electricity will cut off power to the modem or router that connects you to the Internet. This isn’t just a drawback of VoIP security systems; all digital telephones depend on your home’s electrical power. This includes any digital phone service that you get from your Internet, cable or telephone provider, as well as standard phones that offer wireless or answering machine features.

To ensure your safety, most security system providers keep an updated database of the telephone providers in your area. Fully compatible telephone providers are given the status of qualified Managed Facility Voice Network (MFVN). Other VoIP security systems may require additional equipment for battery or communication backup, such as a cellular option or dedicated powered network connection.

Rendin Alarm recommends Cellular/IP Communicators as a solution? We represent Honeywell, NAPCO and Alarm.com Solutions.
