emergency medical alert

To reach me, please send an email to and I would be delighted to send you an electronic copy of our latest newsletter. You can view more of my blogs and editorials at the following websites:Donna Jodhan!Jodhan With more and more aging baby boomers and seniors gravitating towards the Internet, the demand for both hard copy and electronic instructional manuals is growing at freight train pace. At the present time, many of these types of persons really do not know how or where to look for such types of resources and this is why they often become confused and nervous when it comes to learning how to negotiate and work with the Internet. What they are fast learning is that the Internet consists of a whirlpool of components; just too many to deal with in a logical manner. So, enter the need for manuals. In addition to all of this, aging baby boomers and seniors and many others as well are constantly having to keep up with the powers of the latest and greatest releases of software. So much is available for knock down prices but at the same time there is also so much available for free. The thing is this however; many Internet goers are still not sure how or where to look in order to take advantage of these bargains. The Internet is growing and will continue to do so for a very long time to come and with this will come a growing need to be able to search and learn. What would be ideal is if something could be done to bridge the gap between the growing demand and how and where to find the resources needed in order to help individuals cope. There are so many new terms cropping up each day along with new meanings and terminology to understand.

security systems providers

The panel is typically installed on a wall in a central area of your home and connects wirelessly to your home network. Most of these panels use capacitive touch screens and contain multiple radios that allow them to wirelessly control Wi Fi, Z Wave, Zigbee, and Bluetooth sensors and home automation components. Most panels also contain a cellular radio that connects them to a monitoring center if you subscribe to a professional monitoring plan, and they almost always have a speaker and a microphone for two way communication with a monitoring agent. The cellular radio is also used to push updates to the system. For example, the $229 SimpliSafe Foundation is a starter kit that gives you the hub, a door/window sensor, a motion sensor, and a yard sign. Additional door/window sensors go for $14.

residential alarm systems

All of your wireless equipment connects to a control panel or hub and can easily be controlled using your smartphone or web portal. The best part is if there’s a power outage, most wireless equipment includes a backup battery to work. Monthly plans are often less expensive than wired home security systems, but there are drawbacks to consider. Once you’ve set up your home security system, you may need to add extra security cameras or sensors to monitor blind spots that may be out of range. Some home security companies sell additional equipment at a discounted rate if you’ve purchased their home security system. If not, adding additional equipment can be fairly inexpensive. Adding an extra indoor security camera can cost upwards of $100 or an extra door sensor can cost around $30. Before buying more equipment, make sure you know how many home security devices each control panel or hub can accommodate at once. Also, if you’re installing add on equipment, ask about any additional fees such as extra cloud storage for security camera footage. If you’re not buying the security gadget upfront, ask about the leasing price and any additional terms. Whether you’re a senior or simply buying a security system for a senior, I’d recommend Vivint.
