Evaluating Your Home Security System: Tips From The Pro’s

We All Know Home Security Is Important

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs includes shelter and security among the most basic needs for human flourishment.  Securing peace of mind begins with the foundation you lay – your home security system. In a world where safety is paramount, evaluating the effectiveness of your security measures is a proactive step toward safeguarding what matters most.  At GrandSlam, we know the significance of home security and it’s profound impact on the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of you and your family.  

How To Evaluate Your Current System

Evaluating your home security system begins with a list detailing each home security product you employ in your home.  Begin with the basics.  Do a walkthrough of your home listing things like exterior doors, locks, garage doors, and windows.  Then, if applicable, list electronic home security devices like current alarm systems, cameras, sensors, smart locks, and more.  Note the functionality of each device.  If an item is broken or not functioning properly, mark it for immediate replacement.  

Needs, Wants, and Dream Scenarios

Following a thorough home evaluation, catalog your needs, wants, and dream scenarios.  For needs, list replacements for currently non-functioning security devices or fundamentals like quality deadbolts, window locks, or floodlights.  Furthermore, items in the “wants” column should provide additional peace of mind, but may not be a necessity depending on your lifestyle.  Millions of homeowners and renters alike have augmented their security ecosystem with devices like smart locks, motion sensor floodlights, cameras, and video doorbells.  Finally, dream scenarios should include total home security makeovers and/or integrations.  We at GrandSlam are certified platinum installers of Control4, an industry leader.

Take it from Jody Ivy, one of our favorite clients.

“The Grand Slam team has been great throughout the install process and helping me troubleshoot and resolve some issues. My install consisted of three cameras and a video doorbell, all installed quickly and professionally. The technicians helped guide me through the apps and showed me how to access my cameras. The customer care is top-notch -extremely responsive and very accommodating (thank you, David!). The technicians are always very friendly and helpful as well. I would recommend Grand Slam for any home security needs.”
