Oh, the warmth of sunshine … a welcomed sight after our long, cold winter. Spring is just around the corner. And with that – home improvement time.
For many WNYers, The Buffalo Home and Garden Show marks the beginning of that season. It’s happening for two weekends: March 6-8 and 13-15 at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center. We look forwward to this event every year to reconnect with our clientsand share all the cool new things happening at SHIELD and how we can make your life more secure.
Stop by our booth (#420 – second floor, turn left of the escalator) to say hello and check out what we’re featuring at the show this year:
One of the smartest solutions to hit the security market is Honeywell’s Total Connectwhich combines home security with home automation and let’s you manage your home controls remotely from any web-enabled device. With just the press of a button, you can arm and disarm your security system from your smart phone, unlock your doors from anywhere, even turn the lights on and off.
Plus, if you ever worry about your kids arriving home safely after school or want to restrict access to a particular room or cabinet, then Total Connect is a great solution. You can receive custom noticfications like text alerts or email whenever a particular action is detected (like the opening of a door or cabinet.) We have teenagers at home, so one of our favorite uses for the Total Connect notifications is a text that comes across our cell phones when the liquor cabinet is opened. – This is a pretty slick feature that gives us extra peace of mind – especially when friends visit.
Also at the show: See how easy and affordable it is to add video surveillance to your home or office security system. We’ve got a complete video surveillance system set up at the show so you can envision what it would be like to see your backyard, driveway or any room in your house from anywhere. You’ll notice how clear the images are compared to the off-the-shelf solutions you’ll find at the bog box stores.
Home Video Surveillance has gotten considerabley less expensive to install these days. Manufacturers like Honeywell and Digital Watchdog have done a great job making it more affordable for regular folks like you and me to keep an eye on things.
SHIELD has served the Buffalo market for nearly 40 years and we still pride ourselves on providing custom installations and no-contract monitoring. Best of all, our servicesactually cost less than most of our national competitors that advertise “free” security systems. We haven’t raised our monitoring prices in over 10 years! If you have friends or family with a security need, we’d sure appreciate it if you’d refer us.
