Wayne Alarm: 4 reasons to get Total Connect

SAFETY TIP OF THE DAY

SPONSORED BY WAYNE ALARM AND HONEYWELL.

There are times when security alarms aren’t enough to secure our homes and our business, and with technologic advances, using video security changes that. It adds extra security by allowing you to see what is happening around your home and motion activated events that can occur in and around your business. Here are four reasons why having a video surveillance is the best monitor to have.

  1. Wayne Alarm has notifications set up that work with video surveillance. If your camera detects a motion activated event, you are then automatically notified with an e-mail of the event or push notification on your mobile device, which allows you to monitor what occurred at a real time and date.
  2. Wayne Alarm Systems uses Honeywell Total Connect Cameras, allows you to stream videos live straight from the Total Connect directly to your phone, tablet or computer giving you an extra layer of protection. The cameras are portable, so changing locations to monitor new areas is easy. With infrared technology, which enhances your ability to see in the dark, records 10 second clips of a motion activates event and then sends it to you to investigate.
  3. With new technology such as SkyBell, we can help prevent break-ins into your business and home. When you’re a SkyBell owner, you receive a ring whenever the doorbell is pressed, or even have it alert you whenever it senses motion such as someone walks up to your front door. This allows you to remotely stream live video from your iPhone or iPad and interact with whoever is at your front door directly via two way communication. With extremely durable functions for weather, it gives you high definition video and full color night vision.
  4. There is strong data that suggest surveillance of employees in small business can boost productivity and profits. Allowing you to stay in control of dishonest claims, maintain the safety in your work environment and allows you as the manager to spend more time in more productive ways.

Having the best security is a top request everyone seeks for their home and business. With Total Connect video, it gives you enhanced security that allows you to stay on top of whatever happens in your environment, and giving you the added layer of protection that you want.

Wayne Alarm: Home Security System

SPONSORED BY WAYNE ALARM AND HONEYWELL.

A recent study that interviewed more than 400 convicted burglars, revealed that around 60 percent of subjects admitted that the presence of an alarm would cause them to discontinue the crime. Research also show that homes without security systems are three times more likely to be broken into than homes equipped with a system. By investing in a security system, you’ll add to your protection and peace of mind, whether you’re at home or away.

Wayne Alarm: Car Fire Safety


SPONSORED BY WAYNE ALARM AND HONEYWELL. 

Cars can catch fire for many reasons. Mechanical or electrical issues are the most common cause. A car can also catch fire as the result of a bad crash. If you see smoke or flames or smell burning rubber or plastic, respond immediately.

 WHAT TO DO IF YOUR CAR IS ON FIRE.
 
  • Pull over as quickly as it is safe to do so, be sure to use your signal as you make your way to a safe location off the road, such as a breakdown lane or rest stop.
  • Once you have stopped, TURN OFF the engine.
  • Get everyone out of the car.  Never return to a burning car for anything.
  • Move everyone at least 100 feet from the burning car and well away from traffic.
  • Call 9-1-1.

How to prevent a car fire:

  • Have your car serviced regularly by a professionally trained mechanic. If you spot leaks, your car is not running properly, get it checked. A well-maintained car is less likely to have a fire.
  • If you must transport gasoline, transport only a small amount in a certified gas can that is sealed. Keep a window open for ventilation.
  • Gas cans and propane cylinders should never be transported in the passenger compartment.
  • Never park a car where flammables, such as grass, are touching the catalytic converter.
  • Drive safely to avoid an accident.Know the danger signs
    • Cracked or loose wiring or electrical problems, including a fuse that blows more than once
    • Oil or uid leaks
    • Oil cap not on securely
    • Rapid changes in fuel or uid level, or enginetemperature

Most car fluids are flammable. Heat and electrical sparks plus leaking fluid are all it takes to start a car fire.

FACT:

Most crashes do NOT result in fire. In the event of any crash, call 9-1-1. If there is no sign of fire, wait for emergency assistance to help any injured individuals out of the car.

Wayne Alarm: Mobile Security Apps

SPONSORED BY WAYNE ALARM AND HONEYWELL.

SAFETY TIP OF THE DAY:  PROTECT YOUR MOBILE DEVICE SECURITY WITH APPS

With mobile apps making our lives easier, there has been a growth within the app industry to provide more protection to our lives simply by using our mobile devices. All of these apps are free and compatible with both Android and IOS.

  1.     NowSecure Mobile: We all know that companies and even sites such as Facebook can look through and collect our data. In order to protect yourself against unwanted online threats, download the NowSecure Mobile app. It monitors your phone’s operating system, network and other apps for security vulnerabilities, all while generating a code to protect your phone.
  2.     Companion: Even if you don’t have the app downloaded, Companion is a great tool that allows your friends and family, (even your local police) see where you are when you are heading to a destination, with a simple invite. The most important aspect the app provides, however, is the 15 second alarm called Smart Trigger, which checks in to make sure you are safe and if by any chance you don’t respond within those 15 seconds, alerts your companions.
  3.     Skycure:  As the Internet continues to expand, public Wi-Fi has become a threat to personal information, one that experts say can easily be enacted. Skycure, however, is an app that performs tests on wireless networks so that there are no breaches and sends you notifications on any cyber attacks you might encounter. It is advanced enough to keep track of the locations of those networks so it can prevent them from hurting apps on your mobile device or the devices of other people using the app.
  4.     Lookout:  This is an all-around security app, which allows you to find a lost or misplaced phone and backup data. Lookout also warns you about other security risks: notifies you about how to improve your phone’s security settings, tells you which apps are tracking your phone or revealing your location, and uses machine intelligence to detect threats.

5.   Webroot SecureWeb:  Although it’s more compatible with IOS 4.3 or later, Webroot SecureWeb is a great mobile browser that uses URL filtering to protect users from malicious websites. It automatically syncs with the company’s URL reputation database for protection and, search results are made to note safe and risky sites.

 

Wayne Alarm: Winter Pet Safety

SAFETY TIP OF THE DAY 

SPONSORED BY WAYNE ALARM AND HONEYWELL.

Winter weather means implementing safety precautions for all of us, including our pets.  Here are three ways you can keep your furry loved-ones happy throughout the cold winter season.

Take caution of the cold: If you’re going out and want to bring your pet along, make sure pets are allowed ahead of time so they won’t have to stay out in the cold.  If they aren’t allowed, leaving them at home is your best option where they can stay warm and be comfortable. If you live in a bitterly cold area, keeping them warm indoors is the best way to ensure your pets are safe from the cold and happier overall.

Keep them away from cold-weather chemicals: When taking your four-legged pals out for a walk, double check that the sidewalk is durable for a walk. Salt and other chemicals that are used to melt the snow and ice easier, can irritate the pads of their paws. Always wipe their paws with a damp towel before your pet licks them, which can cause his/her mouth to be irritated, as well.  Antifreeze (car freeze) has a sweet taste that can attract dogs. A simple lick can be poisonous to them. If antifreeze chemicals are needed, consider switching to a Propylene Glycol product, which is much safer.  Also, consider getting “booties” for your pet to wear as they walk on the snow, ice, and winter melting chemicals.

Grooming and feeding: Routinely check your pet’s water dish to make sure the water is fresh and unfrozen. Instead of metal bowls, use plastic bowls during the winter. When temperatures are low, your pet’s tongue can stick and freeze to a metal bowl. As for pet grooming, if you normally have their fur clipped or shaved, keep the length longer during the winter, giving them a permanent warm coat. You can also buy them a winter jacket.  If you bathe your pet at home, make sure he/she is 100% dry before stepping outside.  Having blankets available to your pets and keeping out any window/door drafts, can help ensure that they are not cold inside the home.

Always remember, speak out if you see a pet left in the cold by politely letting the owner know you’re concerned for their safety. If it does not go well, make sure to document what you see and have proof to boost your case. Contact your local animal control agency for help as soon as you can and let them know the details, so they can help the animal.

Wayne Alarm: 4th of July Fireworks Safety

SPONSORED BY WAYNE ALARM AND HONEYWELL. 

Fireworks are often used to mark special events and holidays. However, they are not safe in the hands of consumers. Fireworks cause thousands of burns and eye injuries each year. People can enjoy fireworks safely if they follow a few simple safety tips:

BE CAREFUL!

Be safe. If you want to see fireworks, go to a public show put on by experts.

Do not use consumer fireworks.

Keep a close eye on children at events where fireworks are used.

In 2011, almost 18,000 fires were caused by fireworks.

Sparklers cause 16% of fireworks injuries.

Sparklers burn 1200 degrees F.

The NFPA is opposed to consumer use of fireworks. This includes sparklers and firecrackers. Even sparklers burn hot enough to cause third-degree burns.

Select noncombustible building materials and landscape your property with fire-resistant plants. • Create a safety zone by keeping areas within 100 feet of your home clear of flammable vegetation, firewood or combustible materials.  • Be fire-smart at home by regularly cleaning your roof and gutters; inspecting your chimneys twice a year; installing smoke alarms throughout your home; and teaching family members how to operate a fire extinguisher. • Have regular fire drills with your family to teach them how to escape a house fire.

Wayne Alarm Safety Tip of the Day:

“Most burglars don’t pick locks or break glass. Doing that takes too long, makes noise and risks personal injury. Instead, they simply kick in a door (even doors with a dead bolt) or pry open a window or sliding patio door. In many cases, they take advantage of a homeowner’s carelessness by climbing in through an open window or unlocked door (window screens and storm doors offer no protection). Burglars tend to shy away from homes with dogs, and homes with an alarm system.
