Security System Features

Not All Security Systems Were Created Equal

With over eleven years of experience in residential security, we have seen it all.  Trust us when we say that there are products and plans out there on the market right now that might make you feel safer, but still leave you vulnerable to a savvy intruder.  Colorado Security Company is committed to nothing short of the best protection for your loved ones, which is why we offer only the best features in our security solutions.  Here’s what you can count on from us.

Completely Wireless System

Our security equipment is entirely “wireless” in a couple of ways.

  • First every sensor operates independently from the rest of the system and is not physically connected to any of the other equipment. This means no drilling into walls and running wires, making installation a quick and painless process (if your home is pre-wired with equipment however, we can use what is already there).
  • Second, most of the equipment is independently powered. They sip battery power, or at the very least have backup battery power, meaning that the system stays on even if the power is off.
  • Next, all the devices communicate wirelessly. They all send secure encrypted signals, so no amount of technology can compromise the system.
  • Finally your connection to the offsite Alarm Response Center is through the wireless cellular network. Phone lines can be cut and therefore are not a secure way to send notifications.  Our systems send signals at a very low frequency over all major wireless carriers.  This means that you’re always connected to outside help, even in areas where you might get poor reception on your cell phone.

Please note that some pieces of the home security system, such as the main panel, do need to be wired into the home’s power.  But rest assured that your system will continue functioning properly in the event of a power outage.

One more important thing to keep in mind when we talk about wireless systems: you do not need wireless internet (WiFi) in the home for your system to work.  They’re two entirely separate systems.  WiFi based security systems are very vulnerable, if the power goes out, so does a WiFi system.  That’s why we use a dedicated cellular connection to ensure your system works ALL the time, not MOST of the time.

Always-There, Reliable Monitoring

The people watching over your home are just as important as the equipment in the home.  That’s why we chose a provider who won’t let you down.  We use Monitronics as our security system monitoring partner.  They are without a doubt the best monitoring provider in the industry.

Their Alarm Response Center is located here in the US and is staffed by trained professionals around the clock, 365 days a year.  The center is also Five Diamond Certified from the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA), which means 100% of their staff have achieved proficiency and certification.  To give you an idea of how important that is, less than 3% of all monitoring centers in North America have this certification.  Monitronics has won countless awards over the years, and they are the trusted provider for over a million homes.

Remote System Management

What good is an alarm going off if nobody is there to hear it?  What if the dog walker is at the door and forgot her key?  What if you’re out to dinner and realize you forgot to arm the security system or worse, even forgot to lock the front door?

All of these problems are easily solved with remote system management.  When we install your system, we also set you up with a secure login to your online security account and train you how to use it.  You can access this from any mobile device using the mobile app, or any computer connected to the internet.  Get instant alerts from home and make changes to your settings anytime and anywhere with remote system management.

Mobile App

Turn your smartphone or tablet into a powerful home security tool with the mobile app provided by Alarm.com.  The app securely connects to your home, providing notifications, letting you connect to the Alarm Response Center, or make changes to your system.  It’s compatible with all Apple iOS devices (including the new Apple Watch), all Android devices and Windows phones.  Alarm.com is a proven platform that is currently connected to over two million homes.  They offer exclusive and patented technology that sets them above the rest, which is why we work with them.

The mobile app is available at no additional charge with all three of our plans.  Depending on which plan you choose you’ll have different features available.  Arm or disarm your system remotely, control the lights and locks, even watch live streams from your video cameras.  It’s a truly powerful addition to your security solution, and our customers absolutely love it.

Training on how to install and use the app are included as part of our system installation services, so you’ll be a pro by the time we leave your house.

Home Automation

Not only can you monitor and manage your system from anywhere, but you can also automate and manually control your home’s lights, locks, garage and thermostat directly from the app.  If you select the Automation or Video Plan, you’ll get this powerful feature.

Home automation is great for security, convenience, and energy efficiency.  You can close the garage door from anywhere.  You can set the system to turn your lights on when you’re close to home for added safety.  You could unlock the front door for a contractor from anywhere.  You could save hundreds of dollars a year on your heating bill by automatically turning down your thermostat when you’re not home.  The possibilities are limitless!

HD Video Monitoring

Nothing compares to video when it comes to securing your home.  Exterior video cameras are proven to deter home invasion by over 50%.  Plus, you have a much better chance of catching the bad guys if you have video footage of the break in.

But we’re not talking about those grainy black and white security cameras.  We’ve got cutting edge technology that captures video in full color, crystal clear HD quality… even in total darkness!  Our cameras are always on, and record automatically.  You can even stream your cameras live from the mobile app.

Colorado Security Company will recommend how many cameras you’ll need and where they should be positioned as part of our no-obligation consultation.  All of the critical areas of your home will be under the watchful eye 24 hours a day.  It’s peace of mind that can’t be beat.

Independent Living and Senior Wellness

We can deliver reliable independent living solutions for seniors through all of our security plans.  If you or a loved one is concerned with maintaining their quality of life without compromising safety, we’ll set you up with a medical pendant that connects directly to the Alarm Response Center.  In the event of an accident, you’ll have immediate access to help even if you’re home alone.  To take things a step further, activity monitoring devices can help track a loved one’s activity and alert you if anything seems off, such as being in bed for an unusually long amount of time, spending too much time on the favorite recliner, or not opening the cabinet when it’s time to take medicine.
