Monitored Alarm Systems Can Reduce Homeowner Insurance Rates up to 20%
Good news for homeowners: Insurance companies offer substantial discounts on policies for homes with monitored alarm systems. According to a recent study by Rutgers University School of Criminal Justice, the availability of monitored burglar alarms to middle-class homeowners has helped reduce crime significantly. And in a survey by the Electronic Security Association, 10 of the biggest homeowner insurance companies revealed discounts of up to 20% for properties with monitored home security systems.

Before entering your home, use a wireless keychain touchpad to turn off your security system and turn on lights remotely so you never enter a dark house again.

You can turn your system off and on without having to remember an access code. Wireless control makes it possible.

Use a wireless or standard phone to control your system from inside the house. Your Checkmate Security system makes any touchtone phone a security system touchpad.

Call from a touchtone phone anywhere in the world to check system status, change arming levels or turn lights on or off.
Intrusion, fire and environmental monitoring
Wireless systems are quick and easy to install. We install them where they'll do the most good, not where it's easiest to run wires.
Some Checkmate Security systems automatically page or call you when there's an alarm, so you always know the status of your security system. This feature is especially important if you have kids home alone.
Heating and air conditioning control
You can call into your system to adjust temperature control. Or set a schedule to adjust the temperature automatically when you're not in the house.
