We are dedicated to protecting you and your family's home just as we would for our own. That is why our 5-Diamond monitoring and 24/7 tech support come standard with every home security system. As a local provider, we live in the same communities we serve, so we are motivated to protect you the right way.
Fire, carbon monoxide, and water are all risks to your home everyday, and these monitored devices save more than human life. Your pets cannot call 911 for you, but our equipment can! Even with nobody home, you and emergency services will be instantly notified for the fastest possible response. Smoke and carbon detection are an essential for any home, and flood sensors provide instant notification of water trouble with sinks, pumps, and drains.
Standard home security devices, ramped up to the ASTRA standard. Our sensors are rated at 4x strength/range of other common industry brands, using PowerG technology built to block outside interference. These devices give you the reliability of a hardwired system, with the convenience of wireless. With options for door/window sensors, plus motion & glass break detection; our systems are comprehensive enough for any property.
The "brains" of it all, the IQ4 panel has a visually pleasing modern touch screen, making navigation between interfaces simple and hassle free. This panel acts as a hub that integrates all of our equipment types, including a cellular communicator for alarm monitoring, and a built in Z-Wave chip for smart home products. Your entire home on one easy to use platform, the way it should be.
Every single day, we run system checks for all clients to ensure everything is operating as intended. We work tirelessly to resolve hiccups quickly, often notifying you before you are even aware something is amiss.
Some providers may only ping devices once per week or two, and possibly even consider a trouble alert as not important enough to notify you. That isn't acceptable in our eyes, as Astra system checks run every 6 hours to ensure any vulnerabilities are found and resolved.
World-class monitoring services establish 24/7 protection of your home. Our 5-Diamond Central Station rating puts safety and consistency above all, giving you every ounce of confidence in our systems. This monitoring connects your home to emergency services, ready to respond to any type of alarm.
Most of our wireless sensors have a battery life of 3-5 years, allowing for hassle free maintenance. If we get a low battery alert on any part of your system, we will notify you and ship the proper replacement battery directly to you at-cost! If you opt into inspections, we will come out and do it for you!
At 4x the strength of standard security sensors, our devices are sophisticated and reliable enough to be used on detached garages, shops, or other buildings on-site. With up to a quarter mile open range, poor reliability is a concern of the past. All of our sensors use a secure encryption protocol to that acts as an extra layer of protection from outside threats.
Privacy is important to us, which is why we have limited access to your system during normal operation. However, if there is something we can do to help from our office, we can send a time limited request, which after approval allows us to diagnose and resolve troubles, or even help you set up new functions on the software side of the system.
Most home insurance providers actually discount rates for homes with monitored alarm. After installation, we will provide you with an Astra Security alarm certificate, allowing you to take advantage of this added benefit!
