I love that my Qolsys IQ Panel 2 sends me disarm photos each weekday morning as my staff gets into the office. Consider the intelligence/data that a business owner/manager receives from this kind of message:
1- did my employees arrive on time?
2- what sort of mood are they in?
3- are they alone, or did they bring a friend to work today?
I can get answers to all three of these questions within seconds, just by looking at the text message I receive each day… Can you?
Have you registered for our Live Install webinar yet?
We are really excited to something different for this webinar! You will get to watch me, Whitney White, Marketing & Education Manager and Jeremy McLerran, Director of Marketing for Qolsys open an IQ Security Kit, talk about each product from both a sales and technical aspect, and then install the kit into a home! We will be using the webcam to show you how simple it really is to install and how the IQ Security Kit is a great starter pack for you. I’m not an installation pro like most of you so you know you are getting a real look at what to expect for the installation!
We will be using the webcam (with no slide presentation) so be sure to be in a place where you can watch the action happen. At the conclusion of the webinar we will have a drawing for 3 winners to walk away with one of these IQ Security Kits so you know you won’t want to miss it!
Happy New Years! Make sure your IQ Panel is armed and secure while you go out and ring in the new year! Good luck writing your New Year’s Resolutions. Here are our Marketing and Education Manager, Whitney White’s resolutions:
We hope you are off spending lots of time with the people you love this holiday season, enjoying family traditions and making new memories. We truly appreciate you being apart of the Qolsys family. We hope your stocking is full of IQ DW Mini‘s and IQ2s and may you find a new IQ Panel under your tree!
I am relieved to say that I just recently finished my Christmas shopping. But now having this hoard of presents tucked under our tree I’m more concerned about the safety of my home. Most days, our home is empty for the better part of the day due to work or other obligations and we aren’t there to protect from the Grinches of the world or even porch pirates – someone who steals packages off your door steps.
Being gone many days traveling or working, how do I make sure my home is secure? Luckily, our Qolsys system offers layers of security and monitoring. The first line of defense is being able to peek-in on my home while I’m away using my Image Sensors. Another layer is when someone rings my doorbell (perhaps to see if I am home or not), I get a message and image of who is at my door, fending off any porch pirates. So far, it’s only been UPS. But as a last layer of defense, I have my security devices. These range from the IQ Mini D/W sensors I have on my doors, my IQ Motion detector that will alert when there is movement in the house when there shouldn’t be, my Image Sensors and my IQ Glass that will sound the alarm if glass from my windows are broken in attempt to get into my home. Knowing that someone who might try to take Santa’s sack won’t make it very far in my home is a great reassurance while we are out or traveling in the next few weeks.
It’s officially the beginning of the holiday season. It gets easy to be consumed by the hustle and bustle of gift buying and travel plans. Or sometimes, it’s even easier to focus on everything you don’t have or things you would rather have instead of looking around you and recognizing what you ALREADY have.Continue reading→
The ghosts and goblins are about to come out and play! Halloween one of my favorite holidays because of the crisp fall air and the anticipation of the holidays. Sometimes, Halloween brings out our inner child and with that, our desire to cause a bit of harmless fun, such as doorbell ditching! This year, be warned. You will have a tougher time NOT getting caught that in years past because of the IQ Doorbell!Continue reading→
How would you like to know the moment your online order arrives at your house? Do you want to see who is knocking on your door during your Sunday nap and if its worth getting up? Want to catch Halloween door bell ditchers in the act? Did you know most home invasions start with the intruder ringing the bell before they try the handle? How would like a video clip of their face?
I’m sure most of us are guilty of forgetting to arm our security systems at one point or another. We get busy gathering children wallets and phones as we head out the door, maybe you are talking to someone on the phone or late for work.
As a parent I’m always trying to be aware of what my kids are doing, making sure they are safe and giving them the knowledge they need to make good decisions. Having a security system has been a tremendous tool in helping me accomplish this.Continue reading→
