doorbell cameraWith a Doorbell Camera You’ll Never Miss a Visitor!

When securing your home, consider a doorbell camera to notify you of people at your door when you are away. Aside from security, never miss an important moment at the front door. Whether you expecting a package while you’re at work or have singing carolers visiting in the evening, doorbell cameras will notify you on your smartphone or device of anyone who comes to your door. Here are some perks of installing a doorbell camera to your front door for added security and notifications.

With a two-way conversation and one-way video, you can talk to whoever is at the door and see who they are or what they may have. There is also a 180-degree wide-angle view of your doorstep. Smart detection will recognize people, so you will not be notified every time a car or animal crosses the front of your house. Doorbell cameras are also equipped with a day or night vision, ensuring 24/7 visual safety.

Custom notifications are also available to receive alerts. This includes a secure notifying alert, which will let you know when someone is at your doorstep, even before they ring your doorbell. You can see the expected and unexpected, securing your front door. While you’re eating dinner or expecting guests, know right away who has arrived as you are running around the house getting ready.

When the video is turned on due to person detection, recording is available with playback. This allows you to go back and see which neighbor left delicious holiday cookies or when unexpected visitors came.

Give the gift of security this year to your loved ones. Whether it’s for your parents or your kid’s new home, share the doorbell camera experience and comfort this holiday season.

Doorbell cameras bring an extra amount of security to your home, being able to monitor when you are away or who may be at your home late at night when you are sleeping. You can also converse with people who may be coming to your home to deliver a package or sell something when you are not at home. With all the features that are available to you on your smartphone, you will be sure to feel more secure about being away from your home.

Ensure your loved ones are protected with our home video camera systems. Contact us today for more information!

scamWere you aware that every year at this time Protection Concepts and area police departments receive numerous complaints about the fraudulent sales tactics of door-to-door security sales workers?

So does the Federal Government. In fact, the US Government receives so many complaints about door-to-door home security sales tactics that they issued this report to protect consumers from these scams.

These temporary summer security sales workers mislead consumers. Their goal is to deceive consumers to convert their service from their existing provider (like Protection Concepts) to an unaffiliated third party service. They also attempt to “trick” consumers into buying new equipment or a new security system from a disreputable out-of-state company.

These unethical temporary workers descend on a community like locusts on a field. They’re followed by installation crews to install equipment and make transfers before unsuspecting victims can question what’s going on.

Because these scams are so prevalent throughout Georgia, we offer these tips about what to look for and how to protect yourself:

Who Are Prime Targets:

  • Elderly
  • Families
  • Busy Professionals
  • Existing Protection Concepts Customers

Deceptive Tactics Used:

  • Showing up without an appointment saying they work for Protection Concepts (we never show up without an appointment and we don’t practice door-to-door selling)
  • Saying they’ve been directed to “inspect your system” by Protection Concepts
  • Trying to convert contracts to what they claim is Protection Concepts “new company name”
  • Stating that Protection Concepts is going out of business
  • Wearing shirts or hats from alarm manufacturers like Honeywell, Ademco, and GE
  • High pressure sales with offers good “only today”

To Verify You Are Dealing With A Reputable Security Professional:

  • Call the company the person claims to represent to verify employment
  • If the person claims to work for or be affiliated with Protection Concepts, call us to verify 770-612-9073

How To Protect Yourself:

  • Never allow any door-to-door security worker “inspect” your security system, as they may be looking for information for criminals to use to burglarize your home
  • If you have concerns about your Protection Concepts home security system, call us at 770-612-9073 to have a free review of your system
  • Always verify that you are dealing with a reputable professional before signing anything and giving anyone your credit card number or money
  • Don’t waive your right to cancel the contract. In Georgia, you have the right to cancel a contract you enter into in your home. You have three working days to cancel the contract. Get more details at http://consumer.georgia.gov/consumer-topics/canceling-a-contract.

If you suspect fraudulent activity, contact your local Police Department and the Georgia Department of Law – Consumer Protection Unit.

At Protection Concepts, we’re committed to protecting you. Please contact us if you have any questions concerning the security of your home.
