January 2017 Campaign: 2G Reminders, New Year's Resolutions, and Smart Home Security
If your home security system is no longer in working order due to AT&T’s 2G Sunset, please contact your alarm company to take the proper steps towards an upgrade.
AT&T’s 2G Sunset is in full swing! We recommend you test your alarm system to ensure it operates on a 3G+ network. Contact us with any questions.
New Year’s Resolution… ARM your security system during the day!
Did you know that most burglaries occur during the daytime hours when homeowners are away? So use your alarm system day and night. Keep doors and windows locked AND make sure to arm your system every time you leave home.
Too many homeowners are paying for their home security system to be monitored, but are only arming their system at night. Utilize your system and arm it during the day! (Statistics show that’s when the majority of break-ins happen.)
Just a reminder to ARM your home security system during the day! #newyearsresolution #safepractices
Tip: Like many homeowners, you have lots on your mind as you’re rushing out the door in the mornings. So, let the Virtual Keypad App arm your alarm system for you! Just set up an arming schedule and ta-da! #virtualkeypadappfeatures
Tip: Turn on your “Smart Arming Reminder” to alert you if your system is disarmed when you leave the premise. #virtualkeypadappfeatures
The Virtual Keypad App makes it so easy to arm and disarm your security system that you don’t even have to get out of bed to do it! Talk about safety and convenience! #virtualkeypadappfeatures
It’s 2017 and many homeowners are interested in upgrading to a smart home. We could go on and on about the added security and convenience benefits, but smart home features also save you time and money. Your DMP alarm system is fully capable of turning your home into a smart home, so contact us today to learn how!
Interested in making your home a smart home? Start the process by simply adding a Z-Wave light bulb or door lock. The Virtual Keypad App allows you to build from there at your convenience. #ZWave #newyearnewhome
December 2016 Campaign: Holiday Safety Tips
Happy Holidays from your friends at DMP! While you’re enjoying the joy and magic this holiday season brings, it’s important to keep your family safe and your home secure. Here are some great safety tips to keep in mind while you relax and be merry!
There is a rise in car break-ins during the holiday season, so don’t store gifts in your vehicle, AND keep them out of sight while shopping.
Leaving the boxes from your new, expensive merchandise at the curb makes your home a target for burglary. Make sure to take your trash out on “trash day” to minimize attention.
Your home security cameras are the perfect way to confirm package deliveries and also deter thieves from picking up boxes from porches. Use our cameras to your advantage.
Use your home security system’s Z-Wave feature to automate your Christmas lights, including your Christmas tree, for extra safety.
Christmas trees can be a fire hazard. Stay safe by keeping your tree heavily watered and NEVER leave your tree on while you’re away or asleep. Your security system’s Z-Wave device is a safe and convenient way to make sure your tree’s lights are turned off every night. And if you forget to turn off the tree before you leave the house, simply use your Virtual Keypad App to turn them off!
Oh what fun it is to set a “Holiday Schedule” on your Virtual Keypad app! Set one up for complete control over your Christmas lights, holiday decorations, interior/exterior lighting and thermostats! (Perfect for in town or on vacation!)
Increase your home security by making it look like someone is home even while out of town. How? Automate your interior and exterior lights, including the festive ones!
In a rush to leave town and forgot to adjust your thermostats? No worries, you can do so with the Virtual Keypad app. It’ll cut down stress and save you money!
For a safe holiday, keep glass ornaments out of reach from small children and pets. Opt for plastic, shatter-proof ornaments when decorating your tree.
Keep your family safe AND warm this holiday. Inspect and clean your chimney before using your fireplace every winter.

Your home security system communicates on either a 2G, 3G, or 4G network. As of December 31st, 2016, all 2G networks will cease to exist. This means, if your alarm system communicates on a 2G network, it will no longer work after the end of this year. We suggest you contact your alarm company to ensure your alarm system is at least 3G capable. #2Gsunset

Is your alarm system still running on 2G? If so, please contact your alarm company to upgrade your system immediately to avoid service interruption. After December 31st, 2016, all equipment running on the 2G network will no longer be in working order. #2Gsunset

August Campaign: Back to School Safety Tips
As summer vacation comes to an end and kids head back to school, now is a good time to incorporate added safety precautions into your family’s new routine.
Back to School Safety Tip #1: Using the #geofencing feature in your DMP Virtual Keypad App, set up a Geofence around your child’s school. You’ll receive a cell phone alert notifying you that your child got to school safely, as well as what time he or she leaves each afternoon. Then, do the same for your house.

Back to School Safety Tip #2: A Z-wave lock eliminates the need for a key and can be opened with a smart phone. Just give your kids their own special code and no one has to worry about a lost key.

Back to School Safety Tip #3: It’s important to inform your children that it is NEVER safe to answer the door while home alone. So, when you need to see who is at your door, cameras can add an extra layer of security for you and your child. Teach your kids how to view cameras from their smart phone.

Back to School Safety Tip #4: Your DMP system features notifications that are sent to your App when children come home from school. Each child should be given his or her own code for added security, and you can also make sure they re-arm the system once inside.

Back to School Safety Tip #5: How many times have you said, “Don’t forget to lock the door behind you!”?
Did you know, you can setup a Favorites feature to lock the doors of your home at any given time? Whether it’s right after they leave in the mornings or get home in the afternoons, put your locks on a schedule and talk about peace of mind!
