Less than Two Weeks Until Christmas!Posted By Michael Goris
It's almost Christmas DIYers! The holiday is less than two weeks away, and time is running out to get presents. Even if you celebrate a different holiday, the season is here. It's time to start planning! If you're looking for a last minute gift, you might consider equipment from Alarm Grid.
The most obvious present if you're shopping for a security present is to consider a new panel. Right now, wireless systems are all the rage, and most users with older systems have an easy upgrade option available. Three of the hottest systems right now are the Honeywell Lyric Controller, the 2GIG GC3 and the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus. Each one stands out in its own way. For example, the Lyric works with Apple HomeKit, the GC3 offers partitioning support, and the IQ Panel 2 allows security camera streaming directly from the panel. All three can keep a loved one's home monitored for many years to come!
If you don't want to shell out for an entire new alarm system, that's perfectly understandable. There are still many smaller security gifts you can offer for the holidays. If you know what panel you're shopping for, a new sensor or two is always a good idea. It could be something like a door and window contact, a glass break sensor or even a flood sensor for those who live in rainy areas. If you're looking for something more seasonal, a temperature sensor can monitor for freezing temperatures. Carbon monoxide detectors are also a nice gesture, as the winter months represent the most common time of the year for outbreaks of lethal CO gas.
If your gift-recipients don't need new sensors, maybe a second keypad is more appropriate? These gifts are great, because many users only bother to use the main panel for arming and disarming. Being able to easily control the system from a second location, such as near a back door or inside a bedroom, can offer great convenience. Often, a user doesn't know how convenient it is until they have one! Most systems have some type of wireless keypad that can easily be set up and programmed. Some examples include the Honeywell LKP500, the 2GIG SP2-GC3 and the Qolsys IQ Remote. Now controlling an alarm system has never been easier!
