We make sure we have the latest cellphones, up-to-date computers and the smartest T.V.’s. Perhaps it’s time you think about updating the system that protects your family and home.
You can update, rather than replace your entire system.
The keypad to your system can easily be updated. Many manufacturers offer newer touch screen keypads that are simple to read and operate. They also provide more information that older keypads.
In addition, older folks like the newer keypads as they are easier to see than the older models. Newer door and window sensors, which are important components of your system, are smaller and better looking. You may simply want to add a wireless key FOB to make it easy to arm and disarm your system without having to do so on the keypad. This is a great option if you are upstairs and forgot to arm your system before bedtime.
