Home Security Systems
Turner Security offers complete home security and monitoring packages to protect your family, your home, and your belongings including:
A state-of-the-art electronic security system can provide perimeter and interior protection. Our systems can be operated and monitored for alerts from your smart phone and can become part of your smart home system.
No land-line phones? No problem. Our cellular radio solution adds increased security as well as arm/disarm remotely via computer or smartphone.
We can provide monitoring for individuals such as an elderly parent who is at risk for falls or other personal emergency medical needs.
Audible smoke detectors can save lives by alerting and waking your family in the case of a fire. With a monitored fire system, we can not only alert your family, but protect your home from as much damage as possible by alerting the fire department directly when a fire is detected.
Using the same system as the smoke detectors, we can help you protect your family from this invisible killer.
Light It Up
Add motion lights to vulnerable areas around your home including your garage door and your front door. About a third of all burglars go through the front door. A motion detector light on the front porch makes is much less appealing to criminals. It also makes it very convenient for you when coming home after sunset. In addition, it protects you against assault on your own doorstep, a special concern if you have teenagers coming home on their own after dark.
Lock Your Doors
It sounds obvious, but nearly 30% of burglars get into a house through an unlocked door! It’s easy though for someone to forget to lock a door in their hurry to get to work or when their hands are full of groceries after a trip to the store. A motion detector is a valuable part of a home security system because it will set off an alarm whenever someone enters your home while the system is armed. You can also add entry chimes that work to alert you when a door is opened.
Get a Home Security System
Criminals will go to the easy target. They’ll move on if they see a home with lights, a solid security door, and an alarm system. A study of criminal perceptions of risks versus rewards showed that nearly all convicted burglars would avoid homes with a security system. Feel a little bad that the easy target might be your neighbor? Why not recommend a security alarm system to them, too? We’ll give you a $100 referral credit if they become a customer.
Get a Deadbolt
A regular door lock is easy to get around. Remember how you used to get in through that old garage door with your student ID when you forgot your key? A deadbolt is a much more secure way to protect your entrances. The problem is that too many people don’t lock their deadbolts. Plus, a frequent pet peeve of locksmiths is that many deadbolts aren’t correctly installed. Check to see how far the deadbolt hole goes into your doorframe. It should be at least an inch deep.
Tell Criminals You’re Protected
According to the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, thieves are more likely to avoid houses with home security system signs in their yard. Some people suggest saving money by buying fake security service signs, but it’s much more effective to have a recognized name like Turner Security Systems. If you’ve seen our patrol cars and officers, you know that criminals have seen them too! And don’t let your signs get old or worn. We’ll provide you with a new set of stickers and signs if yours are faded. You can improve your home security with just a few common-sense ideas, plus a small investment in some simple security equipment.
