Nothing beats the quality and reliability of a protective system from Scott Alarm Systems. We design the system that's best suited for your home, needs, lifestyle, and your budget. In short, we offer greater value and dependability at a very competitive price. That's how Scott Alarm Systems maintains one of the highest customer satisfaction rates within our industry.
For some that may mean controlling temperatures, setting back the thermostat when no one's home, and restoring the desired temperature just in time for the family's anticipated arrival.
It also means making your household budget more comfortable by saving energy and reducing expenses. You may choose to activate the lawn sprinkler system only during a specific time of the day, or heat the pool water only when you actually intend to use it.
Integrated lighting controls can activate inside or outside lights with the push of a button, according to a preset schedule, via a telephone call command, or even over the Internet. As an example you can simultaneously open the garage door, disarm your security system, and turn on your lights with just the push of a button on a handheld remote. Scott Alarm Systems is here to do whatever it takes to make you and your family feel comfortable and secure in your home.
Our high quality, professionally installed protective system is your best protection against burglary, fire, or even a heating system failure. However, a system's most important link, your telephone line, can also be its most vulnerable one. Cellular radio or direct Internet back-up systems work in tandem with your existing security system to provide reliable communications to your central station monitoring facility, even if your telephone service is interrupted.
