When Your State Association Applauds You

When your state association recognizes you repeatedly over the years for excellence, that applause means a lot. The awards mean your peers see how you operate and want others to be aware of what you do the right way.

H&S Protection has been recognized multiple times by the Wisconsin Security Association (WISA) since we combined our Stevens Point and Pewaukee/Waukesha offices in 2007. Our pride in those awards has led us to create a recognition board in our Pewaukee/Waukesha office (with Stevens Point to follow), posting the WISA accolades that recognize the accomplishments of our employees.

It was an interesting production for us, pulling these awards together. When someone receives the plaque and write-up, it is for them personally. They might take the award home or place it on the wall in their office. Our first step towards creating this “recognition panel” was to ask our employees if they’d be willing to bring their awards in. They were.

We appreciate this recognition from WISA. It means we are active in the association and operating professionally at the highest level. Other business owners in the security industry nominate people for these awards. That demonstrates a substantial amount of recognition from association members for H&S.

We are most proud of the receiving the “Dealer of the Year” award not once, but TWICE. Another member of WISA must nominate you for this award, and this recognizes the team effort by all our employees.

Our commitment is always doing our best when it comes to designing security systems for our customers and coaching our employees professionally. When you do things right, you hear about it from others.

Upfront Timing on Your Home Build, Part II

(Editor’s note: This is the second in a two-part series on working with homeowners/builders to assess your security needs early in the process of a home being built.)

If you are building a home and working with a contractor, security needs are often overlooked.   But in today’s world  this is something you SHOULD be thinking aboutearly on.

Today’s homes are more and more connected. Security is part of that equation. Smart homes are dialed into services through your cell phone so you can access and activate lights, heating and air conditioning, security, locks, and your garage door through remote means.

You should address these types of services early in the planning process.  For example, if you want to be able to activate your garage door remotely through Alarm.com, you should bring that up with your contractor so a fully compatible door opener can be purchased; one that works with Alarm.com and connects to Wifi.  Then you’ll have no issues opening and closing the garage door remotely, getting packages delivered inside the garage if desirable or checking to see if you accidently left the garage door open through our smart phone app.

Locks for your home are another issue to consider during the upfront building of your home. You may choose to go wireless, eliminating the need to carry keys. Keyless entry can be provided through a pin keypad.

Choosing to have thermostat control installed during the build process is another consideration.   These devices can save energy and money over the long run.  Waiting to plan these smart devices until after your home is built can mean higher costs later to switch things out.

Many customers want to be in full remote control of their homes, whether that is to protect against intrusion, flood or fire, especially when they have pets at home. Upfront consideration of these issues while building your home is something H&S Protection highly encourages.
