HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY
While chocolates and flowers are always welcome, why not try something different this St. Valentine’s Day. Show your loved ones how much you care by making sure your home is secure and protected. It doesn’t take long to check your smoke detectors, make sure your door and window contacts are in place and cameras are facing the correct direction. Before you do so, don’t forget to place your system on “test” with Central Station.
You can easily clean your smoke detectors with a vacuum or compressed air. Ideally, done monthly, this will dislodge any spider webs or dust from the unit. Smoke detectors should be located on every floor of your home, each bedroom and hallway.
Carbon monoxide detectors are just as important and one should be installed on each floor, including the basement, and in the garage.
Door and window contacts are easy to check. Just open a door or window and make sure your keypad registers that zone as “open.”
You should check your security cameras weekly to make sure they are properly aligned and recording by looking at your monitors or smartphone.
All of your security devices should be checked monthly. If you are unsure as to how to do this, call Delco Alarm at 610-494-9100 and schedule a service appointment. Also, if you are planning
a trip, make sure you check your system well before you leave.
