A Smarter Smartphone App
Unlike traditional systems that only alert you in an alarm event, a QEI Security & Technology system lets you know what’s happening on your property at any time. Customized notifications inform you when a door opens/closes and when the security system is disarmed at an unexpected time. It’s easy to set alerts and reminders to be notified of any activity you care about, whether your system is armed or not. Set a “scene,” which activates multiple devices with the press of one button. For example, an “away” scene could have your door lock, your security system arm and your interior lights turn off. Geo-services enable the setting of rules and notifications based on the location of users’ smartphones. For example, set a “geo-fence” around your home and when your phone leaves the “fence” and the garage door is open, receive an alert to close the door from your app.
If a burglar knows your home is protected by an alarm, they’re more likely to move on to another target. The FBI reports that homes with security systems are three times less likely to be burglarized. All QEI Security & Technology systems are professionally monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week by a TMA 5 Diamond Monitoring Station that is UL and FM approved. Any time trouble is detected by your home security system, the monitoring station is notified and they are immediately in touch with you and/or emergency personnel. QEI wireless security systems communicate through a dedicated cellular signal, so even if the phone or cable line is cut, power is out or the Internet or broadband is down, your security system will still be connected to the monitoring station. QEI Security & Technology systems also include crash and smash protection, patented technology that protects you even if an intruder destroys your security panel.
Free Home Consultation
For some homeowners, peace of mind means every single first floor window is protected. Other homeowners feel that is overkill and simply want to add a few shock sensors that will react if someone bangs on an exterior wall, window or door. At your home consultation, your consultant will explain different ways to protect your home. You will then determine which option makes you the most comfortable and fits within your budget.
Michael, the installer, was outstanding. Very knowledgeable, skilled and helpful in explaining the system. We are very impressed with the company overall. Jerry, the salesperson, listened to our needs and did not try to sell us anything we did not need. We definitely recommend QEI!
