Wireless alarm systems with constant monitoring are more affordable than ever and will give you the peace of mind you deserve.

An In Home security alarm monitoring system is a crucial part of building a new house, or upgrading an old one. In fact, if you are simply moving into a different, but not necessarily new, house, the alarm system and whether it is monitored should be a question you ask the previous homeowner.

Most people know enough to take basic precautions in protecting their home—like leaving an outside light on so neighbors can see an intruder if you are away, locking the doors, owning a barking dog, and password protecting a computer system. Many people try to keep valuables locked in a safe or at least hidden in a location they hope will be unsuspected. The problem with all of our personal efforts to practice safety is that we are human, and it is almost impossible to think of every opportunity that we might accidentally give to a burglar. That’s why we need the protection of a home security system that includes the services of a monitoring company. It is the company’s job to be alert when you cannot be, either because you are not home or because you are sleeping or simply caught off guard.

Buildings of all types, and even cars are burglarized every day. Some of the thieves are simply desperate people who may be unable to find work and have resorted to crime in an attempt to survive. Others, the more dangerous crooks, are professionals who know every trick in the book for staging a robbery on private property. Furthermore, the best crooks even know how to steal items that will be of great value to themselves but that you will have a hard time tracing once the items have left your home. Certain things like jewelry and antiques you don’t use every day might not even be missed until long after the burglar has pawned your belongings in a location far away from you. It just isn’t worth depending on yourself or your family members to be alert 24/7, 365 days a year. When you rely on a company to protect your home for you, just having a sign up indicating that you have a home alarm system will often deter a burglar

Thanks to the new wireless technology, a home alarm system can be installed in your home with only an hour or two of work. The monitored systems need to be installed by licensed professionals who can communicate with the company and check to make sure everything is working properly before they leave.

If you think you are mechanically inclined enough to install your own system, you can purchase an inexpensive wireless system at your local hardware store, but if it doesn’t do what you want, you are responsible for the results. Even with a professional system, however, you can get very reasonable prices and you can choose the features you want included. For example, if you already have a dependable fire alarm and/or sprinkler system, you may not want to pay an additional price to have a fire or smoke alarm included with your security alarm.

Of course, if you do not already have adequate protection for disasters other than burglary, you can get alarm systems that include flood warnings, smoke alarms, carbon monoxide sensors and more. You can also have closed circuit TV, so if you work in a place where you could take a glance at your home yourself, you might want to check that out. Just be aware that the more bells and whistles you include, the more expensive it will be. Furthermore, before worrying about the add-ons, you need to analyze your own home, counting the windows and doors that need protection. You also need to decide whether you want a silent alarm that only notifies the police, or one with a siren that will alert all the neighbors as well. If you live too far away from other homes, a siren will just give the crook time to grab what he can and get away before the police get there

Added benefit of s security system
In addition to protecting you against a break-in, a security system may also save you money by lowering the rates on your homeowner’s insurance. Some companies give as much as a 20% discount for having an approved security system. Furthermore, if you ever decide to sell your home, having a security system already installed and active could increase the value of your home. Finally, some alarm system monitoring companies give big discounts on the system itself—some even giving you the equipment for free once the system is activated—while others will knock off a month or two of service fees if you pay for the whole year at once.

Secure Your Home while Saving Money!
A house alarm security system has a secondary benefit that could help pay for itself in time. That is, you could be eligible for lower rates on your homeowner’s insurance. If your insurance carrier does not offer such a discount, you might consider shopping around, as many companies give as much as a 20% discount for having an approved, in home security system.

At Melba we listen to what our clients want and we help them make choices in their lives – Microsoft Dynamics NAV helps us do that. We decided to go with Evolution Business Systems because they were a reputable and local company. We found EBS to be very professional, easy to work with and I liked that they would listen to us. They helped us find solutions for our requirements – nothing was too hard for them. We’ve enjoyed working with EBS.

EBS has been very flexible through the development and implementation process. Their staff have worked hard to understand and meet our needs, and we are confident we now have a much improved system for funding and financial reporting.

The support, dedication and professionalism shown by EBS during the transition period was exceptional. No stone was unturned hence we had a smooth transition. The post implementation training got us going from day one without any issues. Nothing was too hard or impossible.

EBS have worked beside us and taken the necessary time to understand how our business operates. They have provided solutions which assisted us in running our business more efficiently. We really appreciate their hands on support.

What is distribution requirements planning (DRP)? Definition from #automated #call #distribution


#

distribution requirements planning (DRP)

Distribution requirements planning (DRP) is a systematic process to make the delivery of goods more efficient by determining which goods, in what quantities, and at what location are required to meet anticipated demand. The goal is to minimize shortages and reduce the costs of ordering, transporting, and holding goods.

Download this free guide

Download our Manufacturer’s Guide: IoT, Sensors, Predictive Analytics

Discover how General Electric, John Deere, and Yankee Candle are turning sensor data, big data, and Internet data into actionable information for their supply chains (and how you can too).

By submitting your personal information, you agree that TechTarget and its partners may contact you regarding relevant content, products and special offers.

You also agree that your personal information may be transferred and processed in the United States, and that you have read and agree to the Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy .

Also known as distribution replenishment planning, DRP is a time-based approach that determines when inventory is likely to be depleted and plans replenishment to avoid shortages. DRP uses a tree-like structure where a central facility, such as a warehouse, supplies regional facilities which then supply other facilities in the tree. This structure can contain any number of layers.

A key element of DRP is the DRP table, which usually includes elements that are important in the process, including:

  • forecast demands
  • current inventory levels
  • target safety stock
  • recommended replenishment quantities
  • replenishment lead times

DRP distribution works by either a pull or push method. The pull method has goods move up through the network by fulfilling customer orders. This provides more availability for consumers because local management controls the availability of the goods. However, managing distribution inventory can be difficult because every order is new to the supplying location as demand flows up the network. This is called the Bullwhip Effect: small changes in consumer demand that generate large swings in demand higher up the network.

In contrast, the push method sends goods down through the network. It generally has lower costs because shipments are planned globally and stored centrally. However, service levels can suffer if central planning is too far removed from the actual demand.

DRP ideally combines the service levels of pull with the efficiency of push, but this depends on accurate forecasts and stable processes to be successful. If both of these exist, DRP produces high fulfillment performance with minimal inventory. Companies usually try to hedge their bets by using safety stock, but that can reduce the overall effectiveness of the DRP strategy, resulting in higher inventory levels or shortages.

A number of vendors include DRP modules in their ERP software.

NETGEAR – Refurbished Arlo Indoor/Outdoor 720p Wi-Fi Wire-Free Security Camera (4-Pack) – White

Poor Software. Posted by: JesM from: on Great idea poor software! Pros: Completely wireless Easy Setup Cons: Too many limitations 1.Battery Replacement (if using the defaults will last 4-6 months, which is ok but you only get 10 seconds of recording once motion is triggered) 2. Cost of batteries 3. Buggy software, sometimes difficult to connect to and is very slow 4. Hub uses wifi n technology to connect cameras instead of the much faster AC 5. Warranty is only 1 year for such an expensive product! 6. Support for updates is slow. 7. No local recording, which means you have allow Netgear (Arlo manufacturer) access to your network and store your video in the cloud, which means privacy can be an issue! 8. Can be easily stolen! There is nothing to prevent someone from stealing the device. 9. Only 5 cameras allow per free cloud account then you have to pay. 10. Only 7 days worth of recording allowed per free account or you have to pay! too many limitations.

It just works Posted by: BusDriver from: on I have tried more than one type of security camera and system over the years. Most seemed to be “buggy”, difficult to install, and remote access problematic. This product is the “real deal”. Plug it in and your up and running. They sell a 2 camera set at a lower price point. Great way to get started.

Good totally wire free camera system Posted by: GeekGirl from: on The idea of this camera system is awesome and the implementation is good. These cameras are easy to set up. However, they are slower to detect motion and start recording than I like and I have fast Internet. The video looks good. The IR light for night time recording is not invisible, they have a slight red glow. They have now added IFTTT support and geo-fencing is in beta.

Home Theater and Audio Video in Seattle, Wa #home #security #systems


#

Welcome

Seattle Sight and Sound has over 14 years of experience in custom electronics sales and installations. Our specialty is providing amazing entertainment systems for everyone, from simply mounting a wall hung tv, to wiring an energy efficient smart home. We will work with you from design to implementation in order to create a customized environment that will fit all of your tastes and preferences. Whether you have a current system that no longer functions properly or would like to start from the ground up, please contact us for a free consultation for your home or business.

and many more

Newtworking and Wireless Systems

With the ever increasing use of cell phones, tablets, and other internet connected devices, it is more critical than ever to have a properly set up home network.

IP Surveillance- Security Cameras

Look in at your home or business from anywhere at anytime. IP surveillance offers HD cameras that are smart enough to see detailed images and provide alerts of motion and other events.

TV Mounting

At Seattle Sight and Sound we do a lot of TV mounting jobs. We probably mount more TV s than any other company in the city. There are a few things we must inform our customers of in light of current trends and our ability to perform this service correctly.

We do not suggest you buy a mount via Amazon or any other discount websites.

Seattle Sight and Sound strives to provide products and services that we can stand behind for years to come and often these mounts are of a subpar build quality and strength. They are not UL listed, meaning, they have not been properly tested to show that they can carry the weight and stress of a TV hanging from them. These mounts do not carry the proper certifications both my liability insurance, and your own homeowners insurance requires in case your TV falls from the wall and causes damage to your home.

To continue providing the greatest level of products and services we will no longer use any customer provided mounting equipment.

When mounting your TV we typically run your A/V cabling in the walls. The standard cables purchased online at discount websites or those that come with a piece of equipment are not properly insulated and built to be run in walls. Using these cables is both dangerous and an insurance liability. Seattle Sight and Sound makes sure to use the proper wiring every time to ensure a great quality and lasting installation.

For those who would like pricing and estimates of your TV mounting job

If you can provide some information to us we can put together an estimate in most cases with no need of a site visit.

1. Brand and model number of TV.

2. Type of mount you are looking for, there are three standard mounts:

Flat or Fixed: Mounts your TV in a flat and level position with no movement.
Tilting: Mounts will allow for the TV to placed in a fixed location with the ability to be tilted downward for higher locations such as over fireplaces.
Articulating or Full Motion: Mounts will allow for the TV to be brought forward, angled sideways, and tilting applications. These mounts are great option for open concept homes or if the TV will be mounted in a corner where it can sit at an angle.

3. List of equipment you would like to hook up to the TV. This includes cable boxes, soundbars, media players, DVD/BluRay players, and many other parts.

4. A picture of the area the TV will be mounted and a picture of the area or furniture where your equipment will be placed .

On-premises vs #saas #systems

On-premises vs. SaaS: Making the choice

Given these conflicts, each of them important to customers, how do enterprises make the choice between on-premises or SaaS.

Be wary of promises from SaaS providers and vendors

SaaS providers and on-premises vendors will try to make you believe that their solution provides the best resolution for you with respect to the conflicts listed in Table 1. For example, one of the most difficult questions to answer involves SaaS versus on-premises costs over a long-term period. such as five years or more.

On-premises vendors often argue that over a five-year period, your infrastructure costs to support your business apps will have paid for themselves. After the five-year period, SaaS is going to cost you while the on-premises solution has no incremental cost, even if you add more users. This argument should be questioned because software updates, new hardware additions, backup/recovery, and the like, are all ongoing costs. To be safe, you need to do the arithmetic on your own for the SaaS case and for the on-premises case.

Use a multistep process to evaluate on-premises and SaaS

Making the decision whether to stay with on-premises or move to SaaS is a multistep process. A hugely important question that you must answer is: Is there a SaaS provider available that provides the software that you need and that you can trust? If you cannot find a SaaS provider that you trust and provides the software that you need, then the decision is easy. Stay with on-premises.

If you find at least one SaaS provider that offers the software you need, the next step is to work your way through the conflicts between on-premises and SaaS. This will help you determine if you want to proceed with SaaS or stay with on-premises. If your analysis indicates that SaaS is best for you. then you have to decide which of the SaaS providers, if you have more than one that looks promising, you will select.

Cost is not the only important consideration

Cost is a primary concern. but so are security, customization, control, compliance, and so on. A subscription service could become expensive as your business grows. Customers are entrusting their data to a third-party SaaS provider ; what happens if the SaaS provider fails? Customization of software and integration with existing data center systems can be a big issue. SaaS providers generally don’t allow the degree of customization that you can often get with on-premises software. SaaS solutions will likely have to operate in the context of corporate apps, such as mail systems and existing HR (human resource) apps. SaaS apps need to integrate with these types of apps.

Lack of control over data and processes could render an IT organization inoperable. There are often landmines in the path, so you must be careful what the SaaS providers and on-premises vendors tell you and promise you.

Understand your business needs

You need to know your basic needs for deploying a new app, or replacing an old one, before you try to decide between SaaS and on-premises. If you do not know, then you can forget about looking at various SaaS providers and on-premises vendors. There are so many choices and options and conflicts, you need a baseline of needs to start any decision process.

Get a free trial from SaaS providers and on-premises vendors

Before replacing an existing on-premises app with a SaaS app, get a free trial from the SaaS provider. This should be easy to do because of the SaaS delivery model. You should do the same with on-premises vendors if you are selecting a new app for your organization. The problem with on-premises is that you might only get a demo of the app. versus a real free trial.

Check the suitability of apps for SaaS or on-premises

On-premises is well suited for specialized apps, such as financial apps with sensitive data or apps that require large data transfers and manipulations, such as BI (Business Intelligence). SaaS is good for apps that improve collaboration and productivity, manage information, and so on. These apps include HyperOffice collaboration, CRM and HR apps (areas where Salesforce.com and others have been successful).

Know the vendor relationship difference between SaaS and on-premises

One of the main differences between on-premises and SaaS involves the customer-vendor relationship. With on-premises, the vendor sells the customer a software license for the software and subsequent updates and upgrades and then disappears (unless the vendor comes around later asking for customer input on new features for the next release or asking the customer to be a beta site). The relationship between a SaaS provider and a customer is ongoing from day one. You are entrusting a SaaS provider with sensitive business data stored at the provider’s site, and you are dependent on the provider on an ongoing basis for smooth running of your software, innovation, support and, sometimes, training.

Home Security Systems in Minnesota

Compare the Best Home Security Systems in Minnesota

The security of your house is one of the most important aspects of home ownership you should never ignore. Serious people always take effective measures to ensure their loved ones and properties are safe from any danger. There are a lot of options available in Minnesota when it comes to choosing the best home security system. In most cases, buyers find themselves with a wide variety of options to an extent where they become confused and spoiled for choice. That’s why Wirefly embarked on a journey to do an extensive research with an aim of giving people some insights on the best home security systems in Minnesota.

Wirefly has had lengthy discussions with the best security experts in the country in a bid to determine the most efficient home security systems. We also reached out to hundreds of customers who have had an experience with a security system to get some feedback on the quality of the products they used. In the end, we came up with an accurate and comprehensive report on security systems in Minnesota. In addition, we have included some crucial information on what a customer should consider when purchasing a home security system. We hope that this information will help our readers make informed decisions when buying home security systems.

What is the Cost of Home Security in Minnesota

Home security providers are abundant in Minnesota, and each one has its own plans, functions, benefits, and costs. Regardless of your particular needs, you can rest assured that there’s a suitable system out there for your house. Setup costs, hardware, and recurring surveillance fees are the three primary factors in calculating the full expense of your house’s alarm system. Having your system professionally installed could cost you as much as a couple hundred dollars, but you can install a lot of security systems yourself. A standard security system typically costs well over $200, but if you enroll in a monthly surveillance service, some companies will provide you with a system for free. With regard to surveillance services, subject to which features you need, you’ll most likely pay somewhere between $15 and over $200 each month.

The Residents of Minnesota Can Benefit From Wireless Home Security

The home security system industry has had an incredible revolution in recent times. It is now possible for clients to enjoy wireless security services in their homes. In Minnesota, wireless home security systems provide the fastest installation possible. Cellular signals facilitate wireless systems communication. It is easy to install a wireless security system because it does not require drilling of holes in your walls. The entire system components are wirelessly connected to the control panel. Therefore, you can move the parts with minimum effort. Thieves never like to encounter wireless security systems because they cannot be disabled like traditional security systems. It is impossible to disconnect cellular signals by cutting internet cables and phone lines because they do not use those mediums.

Keep More Areas Under Surveillance by Using Home Security Cameras in Minnesota

You can ask the security system company to modify your system to suit your specific needs. As the customer, you are at liberty to choose between interior cameras or exterior cameras. Moreover, you can choose more sophisticated types that have night vision and motion-activated features. These cameras will enable you to monitor any situation. You can also link your home security system to your tablet, computer, or smartphone to review previously recorded video clips from your cameras. Additionally, you can easily review the day’s important event by the use of monitor-activated cameras. Security cameras will enable you to monitor your pets, watch out for deliveries made, and know what is going on in your house when you are not around.

Smart Home Automation in Minnesota Increases Protection

Yes, homeowners can add additional smart features to their homes. There are many gadgets available that can make home life a little easier and safer. For example, door locks can now be automated. One can log in to the system anywhere and lock the doors or open them if needed. There are several reasons why someone might need to unlock their doors when they are not home. For one, this could be useful if a child or spouse forgets their keys. All one has to do is look through the digital peephole to verify that it is indeed a family member who is asking for the door to be remotely opened. Smart gadgets can be applied to your appliances, too. A heater or AC could be shut off or turned on without someone being home. This means that a homeowner can make sure his or her home is at an ideal temperature before anyone steps through the front door. The home automation system can alert a homeowner through his or her phone about more than just security breaches. The system can warn about a CO2 leak or water leak, just to name a few examples. Smart automation is the next logical, wise, and incredibly affordable step. Homeowners should take advantage of this opportunity.

Cost Accounting Systems

A cost accounting system (also called product costing system or costing system) is a framework used by firms to estimate the cost of their products for profitability analysis, inventory valuation and cost control.

Estimating the accurate cost of products is critical for profitable operations. A firm must know which products are profitable and which ones are not, and this can be ascertained only when it has estimated the correct cost of the product. Further, a product costing system helps in estimating the closing value of materials inventory, work-in-progress and finished goods inventory for the purpose of financial statement preparation.

There are two main cost accounting systems: the job order costing and the process costing.

Job order costing is a cost accounting system that accumulates manufacturing costs separately for each job. It is appropriate for firms that are engaged in production of unique products and special orders. For example, it is the costing accounting system most appropriate for an event management company, a niche furniture producer, a producer of very high cost air surveillance system, etc.

Process costing is a cost accounting system that accumulates manufacturing costs separately for each process. It is appropriate for products whose production is a process involving different departments and costs flow from one department to another. For example, it is the cost accounting system used by oil refineries, chemical producers, etc.

There are situations when a firm uses a combination of features of both job-order costing and process costing, in what is called hybrid cost accounting system .

In a cost accounting system, cost allocation is carried out based on either traditional costing system or activity-based costing system.

Traditional costing system calculates a single overhead rate and applies it to each job or in each department.

Activity-based costing on the other hand, involves calculation of activity rate and application of overhead costs to products based on their respective activity usage.

Based on whether the fixed manufacturing overheads are charged to products or not, cost accounting systems have two variations: variable costing and absorption costing. Variable costing allocates only variable manufacturing overheads to inventories, while absorption costing allocates both variable and fixed manufacturing overheads to products. Variable costing calculates contribution margin, while absorption costing calculates the relevant gross profit.

Still further refinement to costing accounting systems include JIT-costing, back-flush costing.

7 Reasons to Lease Your Next Used or New Phone System

7 Reasons to Lease Your Next Used or New Phone System

22 February 2007

7 Reasons to Lease Your Next Business Phone System, New Phone System or Used Phone System
By: Mark Allen

  • Conserves Capital: Leasing conserves valuable company working capital and preserves your bank credit lines.
  • Offers a Convenient Application: Provides Quicker Approval with Fewer Hassles.
  • Preserves Bank Credit Lines: Leasing lets you put your equipment to use immediately to generate revenues – with minimum budgetary impact.
  • Cost: Lease financing is generally more expensive than bank financing, but in most instances it’s more easily obtained.
  • Gives Flexible Payment Options: Leasing permits 100% financing with no down payment, so you get the equipment you need without a major cash outlay. With leasing, you can arrange long, flexible terms with low monthly payments.
  • Allows for Easy Upgrades and Add-Ons: What if your business is growing and you need to add phone equipment. In most instances, the leasing company will allow you to add this equipment to your existing lease
  • Lease payments are fixed, not adjustable: You don’t have to worry about floating interest

    Frequently asked questions:

    Is leasing of new and/or a used phone systems appropriate? Any business at any stage of development leasing is always an alternative. For start-up businesses with no revenues, small ticket leases as in phone systems, those of $100,000 or less, are feasible on the personal credit of the founders or owners.

    Is there a supply leasing funds for used phone systems and new phone systems? Abundant. Of the billions of dollars individual and institutional investors pour into the capital markets each month, a good hunk finds its way to leasing companies that use these funds to purchase equipment on behalf of small businesses. With more and more money flowing into the markets, leasing companies are flush with capital. As a result, they are eager to do business and respond to competition with lower monthly rates.

    Can other costs be included in lease of business phone system? Leasing can also finance the soft costs often associated with equipment purchases, such as installation and training services.

    How hard is it to obtain lease financing for a used phone system? Easy for leases of less than $100,000. An application for a small-ticket lease is generally no more complex than a credit card application. Leases for more than $100,000 require detailed financial information from the business, and the leasing company conducts a more thorough credit analysis than it would for a smaller transaction.

    How do I find a leasing company for by new or used business phone system? Finding an equipment-leasing company is easy. Almost any phone system equipment a phone system installer could conceivably provide offers a lease option. What are the lease option terms I can expect for new phone systems and used phone systems? Usually the leases are set up in terms of 24, 36, 48 or 60 month terms.

    What are my purchase options of this phone system at the end of the lease?

    $1.00 Buy Out: At the end of the lease term, lessee may purchase the equipment for $1.00. (Most popular because then you can own the equipment at the end of the lease for $1.00. The monthly payment is only slightly higher then the other purchase options.)

    10% Purchase Price: Customer may purchase the equipment at the end of lease for 10% of the original transaction cost.

    Fair Market Value: This program gives you the most flexibility with upgrades to combat obsolescence. At the end of the lease term the lessee can continue to lease the equipment, return the equipment or buy it at its fair market value.

    What is my down payment? The options are usually no down payment, one months lease, or first and last month’s lease payment.

    In summary, conserve capital with monthly lease payments on your business phone system, installation and voice/network cabling. Though it’s not apparent at first glance, the company offering the lease financing for your used phones or new phones is not the same one that is selling the equipment. The company selling the equipment simply makes a direct referral to a leasing company with which it does business.

    It’s a good idea to get a quote from the leasing firm referred by the company that wants to sell you the equipment. The quote should be competitive. After all, the company selling products wants to sell as many as possible, and it surely doesn’t win any points by referring a leasing company that gouges its customers. But it also pays to get another quote. Usually, the company selling the equipment works with more than one leasing company. Or ask a friend or a business associate for a referral.

    How does a GPS tracking system work?

    Global Positioning System (GPS) is a worldwide radio-navigation system formed from the constellation of 24 satellites and their ground stations. The Global Positioning System is mainly funded and controlled by the U.S Department of Defense (DOD). The system was initially designed for the operation of U. S. military. But today, there are also many civil users of GPS across the whole world. The civil users are allowed to use the Standard Positioning Service without any kind of charge or restrictions.

    Global Positioning System tracking is a method of working out exactly where something is. A GPS tracking system, for example, may be placed in a vehicle, on a cell phone, or on special GPS devices, which can either be a fixed or portable unit. GPS works by providing information on exact location. It can also track the movement of a vehicle or person. So, for example, a GPS tracking system can be used by a company to monitor the route and progress of a delivery truck, and by parents to check on the location of their child, or even to monitor high-valued assets in transit.

    A GPS tracking system uses the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) network. This network incorporates a range of satellites that use microwave signals that are transmitted to GPS devices to give information on location, vehicle speed, time and direction. So, a GPS tracking system can potentially give both real-time and historic navigation data on any kind of journey.

    GPS provides special satellite signals, which are processed by a receiver. These GPS receivers not only track the exact location but can also compute velocity and time. The positions can even be computed in three-dimensional views with the help of four GPS satellite signals. The Space Segment of the Global Positioning System consists of 27 Earth-orbiting GPS satellites. There are 24 operational and 3 extra (in case one fails) satellites that move round the Earth each 12 hours and send radio signals from space that are received by the GPS receiver.

    The control of the Positioning System consists of different tracking stations that are located across the globe. These monitoring stations help in tracking signals from the GPS satellites that are continuously orbiting the earth. Space vehicles transmit microwave carrier signals. The users of Global Positioning Systems have GPS receivers that convert these satellite signals so that one can estimate the actual position, velocity and time.

    The operation of the system is based on a simple mathematical principle called trilateration. Trilateration falls into two categories: 2-D Trilateration and 3-D Trilateration. In order to make the simple mathematical calculation the GPS receiver must know two things. First it must know the location of the place is to be traced by at least three satellites above the place. Second, it must know the distance between the place and each of those Space Vehicles. Units that have multiple receivers that pick up signals from several GPS satellites at a same time. These radio waves are electromagnetic energy that travels at the speed of light.

    A GPS tracking system can work in various ways. From a commercial perspective, GPS devices are generally used to record the position of vehicles as they make their journeys. Some systems will store the data within the GPS tracking system itself (known as passive tracking) and some send the information to a centralized database or system via a modem within the GPS system unit on a regular basis (known as active tracking) or 2-Way GPS.

    A passive GPS tracking system will monitor location and will store its data on journeys based on certain types of events. So, for example, this kind of GPS system may log data such as where the device has traveled in the past 12 hours. The data stored on this kind of GPS tracking system is usually stored in internal memory or on a memory card, which can then be downloaded to a computer at a later date for analysis. In some cases the data can be sent automatically for wireless download at predetermined points/times or can be requested at specific points during the journey.

    An active GPS tracking system is also known as a real-time system as this method automatically sends the information on the GPS system to a central tracking portal or system in real-time as it happens. This kind of system is usually a better option for commercial purposes such as fleet tracking or monitoring of people, such as children or elderly, as it allows a caregiver to know exactly where loved ones are, whether they are on time and whether they are where they are supposed to be during a journey. This is also a useful way of monitoring the behavior of employees as they carry out their work and of streamlining internal processes and procedures for delivery fleets.

    Real-time tracking is also particularly useful from a security perspective as it allows vehicle owners to pinpoint the exact location of a vehicle at any given time. And, the GPS tracking system in the vehicle may then be able to help police work out where the vehicle was taken to if it was stolen.

    Mobile Phone Tracking

    The development of communications technology has long since surpassed the sole ability to access others when they are mobile. Today, mobile communication devices are becoming much more advanced and offer more than the ability to just carry on a conversation. Cell phone GPS tracking is one of those advances.

    All cell phones constantly broadcast a radio signal, even when not on a call. The cell phone companies have been able to estimate the location of a cell phone for many years using triangulation information from the towers receiving the signal. However, the introduction of GPS technology into cell phones has meant that cell phone GPS tracking now makes this information a lot more accurate.

    With GPS technology now more commonplace in many new smartphones, this means that the location of anyone carrying a GPS enabled smartphone can be accurately tracked at any time. Cell phone GPS tracking can therefore be a useful feature for business owners, parents, friends and co-workers looking to connect with one another. GPS Tracking Apps (www.gpstrackingapps.com) provides a suit of Apps for the iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry and latest Samsung operating system bada all of which can be used to track one another on a location-based social networking portal or from phone to phone.

    The technology of locating is based on measuring power levels and antenna patterns and uses the concept that a mobile phone always communicates wirelessly with one of the closest base stations, so if you know which base station the phone communicates with, you know that the phone is close to the respective base station.

    Advanced systems determine the sector in which the mobile phone resides and roughly estimate also the distance to the base station. Further approximation can be accomplished by interpolating signals between adjacent antenna towers. Qualified services may achieve a precision of down to 50 meters in urban areas where mobile traffic and density of antenna towers (base stations) is sufficiently high. Rural and desolate areas may see miles between base stations and therefore determine locations less precisely.

    Design UX

    A Word Number is a 086 telephone number that spells out a word and can be dialed from both a landline or a cell phone. Your product, service or company name can now become your telephone number!

    1. A memorable “Generic” word telephone number, where your product or service becomes your telephone number, for example:
    0861-PLUMBER

    2. A memorable “Branded” word telephone number, where your company becomes your telephone number, for example:
    0861-MERCEDES

    Design UX

    1. Long Term Advertising Tool
    A word number is a long term advertising tool that enables ease of expansion, marketing initiatives and/or changes of location.
    2. One national Number
    Should you have multiple branches a word number is the answer.
    3. Enables growth in multiple regions
    Consumers are often “put-off” from contacting companies if they perceive you are not based in their area – don’t be limited by your region-specific number

    Design UX

    Please note that each solution is specifically developed to each clients specifications and that the final costing is based on number of destinations, voice artist requirements, frequency of call reporting as well as the expected traffic which will be generated.

    Please note that the cost of each call made to an 0861 telephone number will remain with the caller, even once it is routed

    What I can do for you

    Design UX

    Our Network Interactive Voice Response (NIVR) enables us to route calls made to a single 0861, 0860 or 0800 telephone number from landlines and cellular phones to multiple destinations throughout the country

    Your company can now promote and brand one single telephone number which allows customers anywhere in the country to get hold of a branch, dealer or franchise of their choice.

    How? By presenting the caller with a series of Dynamic or Location based menus in order to ascertain exactly what and where the service is required.

    Design UX

    1. Customer gets to the right place first time.
    2. Replaces the expense of call operators.
    3. Avoids mistakes made by receptionists/call centre operators.
    4. You don’t lose out on sales due to inefficiency.
    5. Consolidate all branch numbers into one number.
    6. Easy-to-change destination numbers.
    7. Better customer service.
    8. Service is available 24/7.
    9. Routing to up to 180 destinations.
    10. Allows for routing of landline and cellular calls.

    Design UX

    A word number and call routing solution can cost from as little as R 85 per destination per month.

    Please note that each solution is specifically developed to each clients specifications and that the final costing is based on number of destinations, voice artist requirements, frequency of call reporting as well as the expected traffic which will be generated.

    Please note that the cost of each call made to an 0861 telephone number will remain with the caller, even once it is routed

    Euphoria Telecom | Cloud PBX VoIP Service Provider

    Proudly built by South Africans, for South African Businesses.

    A solution born of the passionate belief that customers deserve more.

    What our customers are saying

    The service and support we have received from Euphoria has been really good and we will definitely recommend them to others that require control over their telephone system.

    Jodine Landman, Everlytic

    I absolutely love your product! I show it off all the time. I can track my costs, I don’t have to deal with Telkom – the minute I saw your product, I took to it like a duck to water. I have already sold your product to some of our clients at zero mark-up – it is that good!

    Brad Morein, Commercial ICT

    Thank you once again for the stunning switchboard – everything is crystal clear and just works. Thank you thank you thank you thank you for the stunning service and system that works. I am recommending you to many of my clients and suppliers.

    Jackie Nieuwenhuizen, SmartEdge Solutions

    Euphoria enabled us to ‘close the deal’. No other provider could or would deliver a functional call centre in the time frame we required. The simplicity of the integration went far beyond our expectation, it gave the term ‘plug and play’ new definition, very few setups works this well from day one. The guys know what they are doing and they do it well.

    Martin Lubbe, Altech Isis

    The Euphoria PBX is working very well and has the best user interfaces I’ve come across. No contracts either. We bought “Yealink” handsets which are working well, especially for the price!

    Hein Koen of FLICKSWITCH

    Euphoria enabled us to ‘close the deal’. No other provider could or would deliver a functional call centre in the time frame we required.

    Welcome to Open Campus! #mcse, #mct, #mcp, #microsoft #certified, #systems #engineer,

    Our Mission.

    The mission of RCCD Distance Education (formerly Open Campus) is to extend access to learning through distance education. Objectives: To facilitate learning at a distance, Distance Education provides:

    • Educational technology to the colleges, faculty, and students to support the delivery of online-based courses and services
    • Professional development and training for faculty
    • Expertise and experience
    • Blackboard management, production and problem solving.

    As of April 21, the Open Campus department has changed its name to Distance Education. We thank you for your patience as we work to complete the changes to website by the middle of summer.

    What Are Online Based or Distance Education classes?

    Online-based courses, also called Distance Education classes, may take two different forms:

    Online classes are taken exclusively over the Internet. Please note that, while some online courses provide all instructional content over the Internet, others may require some on-campus meetings. Please see the course schedule or WebAdvisor for more information.

    Hybrid classes meet both on campus and online. Think of them as a combination or blending of online classes and face-to-face classes.

    In a hybrid class, you will attend meetings on campus during the dates and times listed in the schedule of classes. Since the on-campus portion of hybrid classes could take place at any of our three colleges (Riverside City, Norco or Moreno Valley), hybrid classes are listed in the schedule by the college where the on-campus meetings will take place.

    Are there Face-to-Face classes that use the Internet?

    Web-Enhanced classes are traditional face-to-face classes that are supplemented with course websites and the use of Internet resources. Unlike hybrid or fully-online classes, all web-enhanced class meetings take place on campus.

    Where Do I Start?

    Lessons Learned – guidance from Knoco Ltd #lessons #learned, #lesson #learned,


    #

    Knowledge Management Reference

    Lesson Learning

    The lessons learned process is a key part of KM – where new knowledge and new learnings are identified through activity and review, and incorporated into future work practices. It seems a simple concept, yet many of our clients are unhappy with their Lessons Learned process. Maybe they have a lessons database, but no lessons are coming in. Or they have a lessons database, and it s full of rubbish. Or they have a lessons database full of good quality lessons, and yet nothing ever seems to change, and the same mistakes are made over and over in the business. So why does Lessons Learned seem so difficult to get right?

    The answer, it seems, is linked to another of our observations – organisations in which KM sticks and consistently delivers business value tend to be characterised by the ability to execute with discipline and rigour.

    We are beginning to come to the view that a lesson is not an end in itself. A lesson is a temporary step along the way to a process, or to a process improvement. Therefore a lessons database needs to be replaced by a Lessons Management System – something that forms a temporary home in a workflow, rather than a permanent repository.

    Think about a lesson coming out of a Retrospect. What have you learned? Generally you have either learned how to do something for the first time, or you have learned a better way to do something (or of course, if the project was a disaster, you have learned a new way NOT to do something). So the lesson points to one of two actions

    • 1. Document the way of doing something – ie write a process or procedure, or
    • 2. Document the better way of doing something, i.e. write a process or procedure improvement, which can then be evaluated and implemented.

    This second point – process improvement – is implicit in the third question of the After Action Review – why was there a difference between what we expected, and what actually happened . The team followed the process, there was a difference from expectations, and therefore changes need to be made to the process. If there are no differences, then the process works perfectly, and we need to make no changes. You can generalise this by concluding that Learning has to lead to change . If there is no change, there has been no learning. A lessons learned system needs to feed through into process change, as shown in the figure below. If this cycle is going to work, then we need, as part of our Knowledge Management Framework. the following things.

    • – Activity review needs to identify not just lessons, but actions (and the actions have to be executed – see point 5). We see this in the learning system at BP Alaska, where each lesson is accompanied by an action, and by the identification of the document (manual, procedure, guidelines) which needs to be updated. There also needs to be quality control of this step.
    • – The lessons management system drives an automated workflow, so that new learnings and process improvement suggestions and actions are forwarded to the relevant process owner. The process owner can also validate the lessons, and make sure they are real learnings, not one person s opinion.
    • – There needs to be ownership for each key process, and these process owners need to be held accountable for reviewing all lessons and updating the processes that they own. This is built into the system used by the UK Ministry of Defence Procurement, and process owners who don t update their process are given a nudge by a high ranking officer. This ensures follow-through on learning.
    • – Once the process or procedure is updated, the lesson can be removed from the Lessons Management System and archived as part of the paper trail that tracks why changes were made. The active lessons database then only contains pending lessons, which aren t yet incorporated into practices and guidelines, while closed lessons are archived.
    • Lessons Management System, to ensure that the process improvement suggestions that arise from lessons are reviewed, and are closed out.

    People seeking knowledge now need to look in only two places for knowledge – the corporate guidelines, procedures and best practices, and the pending lessons. There s no need to wade through hundreds of past lessons, because all the good ideas are already incorporated into the guidelines. Excellence in following through to turn lessons into actionable process improvement is therefore a defining characteristic of learning organisations, and in these organisations we seldom if ever hear the claim Lessons Learned doesn t work .

    Small Business Security Systems Experts

    Peace of Mind for Your Small Business

    Running a small business requires you to take a number of risks. However, security shouldn’t be one of them. Your primary role is to focus on your business, and we will help you do just that by protecting it with a small business security solution that’s just right for you. We can provide a situation assessment to better understand your small business environment and help pinpoint where you may be most vulnerable, even in areas you may not have considered.

    From burglar alarms and access control to video cameras and digital video recorders, Protection 1 offers security products and service plans that let you choose the solutions best suited to you. We can customize a flexible package of solutions to address your security issues and provide peace of mind.

    Protection 1 Can Address Your Greatest Challenges

    • Burglary accounted for $4.7 billion in losses in 2012, with the majority of non-residential burglaries occurring during the nighttime.* We can help reduce your risk with a professionally installed and monitored burglar alarm system.
    • Employee theft is blamed for $20 to $40 billion in losses, with three out of four employees stealing from their employer.** Video cameras serve as an effective deterrent, and recorded video can be accessed remotely for a live look-in or incident review.
    • Low employee productivity can translate into time wasted on the job and poor customer service, affecting your overall profitability. Actively monitored systems allow you to thank employees for a job you see well done and remind them that their actions are available for review.

    Small Business Security Solutions

    When you call on Protection 1 for your small business security, you can have it all:

    • Local Service and Support
    • Award Winning Resources
    • Affordable and Reliable Security Technology

We are a national company with highly trained local professionals who provide innovative security products, expert installation and unparalleled customer service. We have offices strategically located throughout the country, with each local office equipped to help address your small business security needs.

    Video Solutions

    Video solutions include video surveillance cameras for any application and remote video services that can protect your small business against crimes such as shoplifting, vandalism and employee theft. We also offer digital video recorders (DVRs) that can document incidents for evidence when needed.


  • Access Control

    Access control systems can protect your main entrances as well as sensitive areas of your business while eliminating the cost and headache of re-keying and lock changes when employees leave. Whether you want to protect valuable assets or increase employee safety, we have flexible electronic access control solutions for your small business.


  • Intrusion Alarms

    Intrusion alarms, burglar alarms and monitoring can provide small businesses with effective and affordable protection for employees and property due to unauthorized entry, robbery, burglary, holdup, theft and vandalism. Our eSecure services allow you to conveniently monitor and control your security system remotely from your mobile or web-enabled device.


  • Monitoring

    Monitoring is performed by trained Protection 1 professionals specializing in commercial security systems. Our UL Certified monitoring centers are staffed around the clock, so you can have the confidence that your business is protected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.


  • Installation Maintenance

    Installation and maintenance is performed by Protection 1 technicians trained specifically to service commercial security systems. If you need service, we arrange for service calls within one day. Our Tech Tracker feature will even let you know via email or text message which technician will be arriving for your installation or service and provide an estimated time of arrival.


  • Fire Life Safety

    Fire and life safety systems can ensure that your people and property are protected from fire and smoke. With fire alarm monitoring to fire alarm inspections and service, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that Protection 1 has you covered.

    *FBI’s Uniform Crime Report
    **U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 2012

    Reducing Employee Theft

    3 out of 4 employees steal from their employer, racking up $20 to $40 billion in losses.** Video surveillance systems can deter employee theft, record incidents and allow you to access cameras remotely to view live video of your business.

    **U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 2012.

    Related Case Study: Coin-operated Laundromat

    This coin-operated laundromat owner thinks Protection 1 is the best way to remove crime.

    The Situation: This laundromat owner was experiencing burglaries during the day. Her laundromat was unattended and burglars were ripping down office doors, cutting open her safe and breaking into her machines. The owner called Protection 1 for a complete security upgrade.

    Action: Our customer had construction going on right up until the day before she reopened. She was installing barred doors, a new safe and making other structural changes. Our Protection 1 installation team went above and beyond the call of duty to complete ALL of her security upgrades the day before she reopened—and helped to prevent further damage to her new facility.

    Result: This laundromat owner has all kinds of good things to say about Protection 1. She still can’t believe we were able to work side by side with her other contractors—at the last minute—to get her job done. She gives us high marks because we gave her exceptional customer service that really exceeded her expectations.

    Our People Are What Set Us Apart

    SAFE SECURITY – Security Alarm System Components #alarm #systems, #security, #burglar


    #

    At SAFE Security we design home security systems that are tailored to meet the specific needs of each customer s home and lifestyle. We have wired and wireless systems available and all our systems are easy to use. Our systems can be configured to protect your home against intrusion, fire, carbon monoxide and other environmental hazards. When triggered, these devices send an electronic signal to the monitoring station where a trained operator will respond appropriately.

    The most commonly used devices include:

    Security System Keypads
    Keypads are an important part of your home security. They allow you to arm your system with a secured code. They can be placed wherever you need them most and are so easy to use even your children can operate them.

    Keypads feature emergency buttons that allow you to call for help immediately. Backlit buttons allow you to see your keypad when the power is out.

    Door and Window Sensors
    According to the NBFAA, 56% of burglars enter through a door, another 23% through the first floor window. Door and window sensors are placed in these areas of vulnerability. When the contact is broken, the alarm is triggered. A chime function allows you to monitor who comes and goes from your home—this is great for added security while you are at home. Keep children in and intruders out.

    Motion Detectors
    Motion Detectors are triggered when someone walks in view of the detector. If an intruder enters your home through a door or window that is not protected by a sensor, the motion detector will act as a trap ensuring they don’t stay in the home for long.

    Motion Detector technology can distinguish the difference between an intruder and a playful cat or dog left in the home. They can be turned off while you are home while your windows and doors can remain secured.

    Monitored Smoke Detectors
    During a fire it takes the average person seven minutes before they have an opportunity to call the fire department, but it takes just three minutes for a room to become fully engulfed in flames. With a monitored smoke detector, the second smoke is detected the siren will be triggered, the monitoring station will be contacted and the fire department dispatched. This allows you to focus on getting your family out of the home.

    Smoke detectors provide the best early warning for fire protection and ensure that your home is protected while you are at home or away.

    Carbon Monoxide Detector
    Carbon monoxide poisoning is the #1 cause of accidental poisoning in the United States. You can’t see it, smell it or taste it, but our Carbon Monoxide Detectors can. When high levels of carbon monoxide are detected the monitoring station is signaled and alerts your family. Protect your family against this silent killer with a Carbon Monoxide Detector added to your home security system.

    Panic Buttons
    Panic Sensors are designed to go just about anywhere. This sensor allows you to activate a 24-hour emergency alarm whether you are at home, in the yard, or in the shower. Call for help with just a push of a button.

    Remote Entry Key Fob
    Convenient and easy to use remote entry key fobs allow you to arm and disarm your system with a push of a button as far as 500 feet from your home. The key fob also features a panic button which allows you to contact help in case of emergency.

    Alarm Sirens
    An alarm siren provides peace of mind for you and acts as a deterrent for would-be intruders. Alarm sirens will wake even the soundest sleepers to alert them of trouble.

    Avaya Review 2017 #office #phone #systems #reviews

    Avaya IP Office Review

    Editor s Note: On Jan. 19, 2017, Avaya filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. At this time, we are continuing to recommend it as one of the best small business phone systems. However, we are monitoring the status of the company and if necessary will adjust our best picks as the situation evolves.

    Avaya’s phone system is an excellent on-premises solution for small businesses because of the options it offers. The on-premises systems are available in several different platforms, each of which can be customized for the specific features and tools a business wants.

    In addition to being one of the best on-premises phone systems, Avaya is among the contenders for best call center phone system, best phone system for enterprises and best phone system for businesses with multiple locations.

    • Best for: On-premises, call center, enterprise and multiple locations
    • Phone service: VoIP
    • Hosting: On-premises and cloud
    • Costs: One-time fees of $500 to $550 per user for on-premises systems; $25 per user per month for cloud-hosted systems
    • Support: Phone, email and live chat
    • Mobile app: iOS and Android devices

    Multiple Deployment Options

    Avaya offers a robust VoIP phone system for small businesses that can be configured specifically for each business. The system we researched in depth was the Office IP platform. This system is designed for businesses with five to 3,000 users.

    The Office IP platform can be deployed as an on-premises system or a cloud-hosted solution. Both options have same functionality; however, with the on-premises system, your IT staff is responsible for maintaining it and making any upgrades when necessary. With the cloud-hosted system, Avaya handles all of the maintenance and upgrades.

    A nice aspect of the on-premises system is that businesses can configure it for their specific needs. Each system starts with the main platform, a two-rack unit, and then businesses can pick and choose from the different add-ons. Add-ons can include mobility options and call center services. This allows your business to build a system that has exactly what it needs. As a business grows, the equipment can easily add storage, phone lines and new capabilities.

    The choice between an on-premises and a cloud-based system is part of what makes Avaya a great option for enterprise businesses and businesses with multiple locations. Since larger businesses have varying needs, having options on how they deploy their phone systems is a huge plus for many organizations.

    Avaya is also an enticing option for enterprises because of the large number of employees that can use the service. Businesses that have more employees than the Office IP platform supports can deploy Avaya’s Aura platform. This platform can serve up to 250,000 workers, including 2,500 on a single server.

    For businesses operating multiple offices or stores, the IP Office platform can easily expand to work in 150 different locations. Avaya’s phone system allows businesses to manage each location from a single browser-based interface. In addition, businesses using IP phones can automatically switch their service to one of the other locations should the office they are working in lose power. This helps ensure continuous operation.

    Overall, Avaya’s business phone systems offer more features and tools than most of its competitors. In total, the system is available in five editions Basic, Essential, Preferred, Server and Select that differ in the number of included features.

    Among the features available are automated attendants, caller ID, automatic callback, the ability to put calls on hold, on-hold music, the option to transfer calls and toggle between multiple calls at one time, and voicemail and voicemail-to-email. Altogether, Avaya offers more than 600 features and tools.

    One module businesses can add to the system is the Avaya Communicator. This allows employees to use their mobile devices or computers to talk on their business lines, make video calls and instant-message with co-workers. A presence feature indicates who is online and available for a meeting.

    In addition to choosing the edition with the features it needs, your business can designate which employees have access to which features. Each employee is designated as a basic user, office worker or power user.

    Basic users can make and receive calls and have access to most of the standard features, such as the ability to put calls on hold and transfer calls. The office worker designation allows employees to also use the visual voicemail tool, access the corporate directory, and integrate their systems with Microsoft Office and Salesforce.

    Power users have total control of the system. This allows them to make and receive calls on their mobile devices over cellular, Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G connections. They can also schedule conference calls and turn their home phones into their office phones.

    In addition to its regular phone system features, the Avaya contact center module offers features and tools for businesses with a call center. Among them are the ability for customers to connect with businesses via the phone, email and web chat.

    It also has skills-based call routing, interactive voice recordings, call recording, integrations with customer relationship management software, and access to real-time and historical reports. The contact center services also let businesses make telemarketing and outbound campaign calls.

    Since Avaya’s phone systems are so customized, pricing is often different for each business. Additionally, Avaya works with local resellers to sell and install the systems, which can affect pricing.

    The prices that one of Avaya’s local resellers quoted to us were based on a business with 100 total employees and 25 call center seats. For the on-premises system we were looking at, which included the mobility, conference calling and upgraded voicemail modules, the one-time costs were $500 per station. That included basic phones and installation. The call center service had additional one-time costs of $1,200 per user. The prices, however, do not include the monthly cost of bringing a dial tone into the system either via PRI circuits or SPI trunking.

    The cloud-hosted system cost $25 to $30 per user per month. That included 500 calling minutes per station. Call center services cost an additional $36 per month per user. However, there is an additional $400 charge per station for phones and installation.

    Since the pricing we were quoted was for our specific requirement and by a reseller in our area, the costs of the system for your business would be different. Knowing that Avaya offers such a wide range of system options, we would encourage all businesses to contact Avaya, or a local reseller, early on in their research process to get specific pricing for their exact needs.

    While some phone system providers handle all of their sales and support in-house, others, like Avaya, work with resellers in local communities. These resellers work with businesses individually to design and price out packages that best fit their needs. They also handle the installation, training and some support moving forward.

    During our research, we first contacted Avaya to learn more about the system. After giving us some basic details, the Avaya representative we spoke with asked for our contact information and said a local reseller in our area would reach out to us to provide more specifics and pricing details.

    While we were initially discouraged that we couldn’t learn more during that initial call, we were pleased when we heard back from the local reseller that same day. The reseller we spoke with was extremely knowledgeable about the Avaya system and provided us with more than enough detail.

    In addition, he followed up by emailing us a 90-page document that described the system in even more detail. The reseller also didn’t hesitate to share pricing information with us.

    While our interactions with the local reseller left us very comfortable with the service his company would provide, we can’t guarantee that Avaya resellers in all communities would offer this same level of support.

    Similarly with pricing, it is important to spend some time talking with the reseller Avaya refers you to in order to get an idea of what it would be like to work with them. Since getting the right phone system is such a big decision, businesses should make sure the reseller they are working with is not only going to provide a system that meets all of their needs, but is doing so for a fair price.

    Avaya does handle some support issues itself. If users have a problem, the company encourages them to file a help ticket online or launch a live chat session to get assistance.

    Easy Setup, Reasonable Price Posted by: SCStrong from: on Been looking for DIY systems for a while and decided to give Simplisafe a try. Set up was a breeze and took less than 5 minutes. Only issue was connection to monitoring station as I live in a remote area. Called the customer service number and got a response very quick. Within 10 minutes we had determined it was a weak signal problem and they sent a Verizon module overnight. (Most systems come with a t-mobile module). Everything is working great. The interactive website and mobile app works great and is easy to use. I also like you can easily assign codes to fiends and family at a click of a button. The monitoring rates are very reasonable compared to most companies. No contracts! The Best Buy bundles were a good fit for me because it didn’t need all the bells and whistles that came with the direct from simplisafe website. Overall really happy with the purchase.

    NO LONG TERM CONTRACT. Posted by: lynn from: on Works great for a person not wanting to commit to a long term contract. The monthly fee is also inexpensive. I also like that it has an app to monitor and control the system when away from home. I, personally, have not had any connection or installation issues. The reason I did not give it 5 stars, is I believe the system could use some updating, i.e. touchscreen display, this is something I would even be willing to pay a little extra for when purchasing or adding on equipment. But, the design is understandable, as this is the more ‘economical’ choice for home security.

    Easy Install – Economical Posted by: edstats from: on After reading reviews of several self-install systems, I chose SimpliSafe. The system had consistently good reviews, was economical, and has a monitoring option that requires no contract. I accomplished the complete setup in less than an hour. It is simple to use, provides peace of mind, and is unobtrusive.

    Easy Setup Posted by: maroongoon from: Minneapolis, MN on Very easy to install and set up home security system. Installation only took about 30 minutes and activation was easy. The sticky tape that comes on the sensors and pads seems like it might not hold up long, but so far so good. I like the fact that it doesn’t require a contract, you can start and stop the service at any time. The alarm siren that comes built into the base is not very loud, if you are interested in a loud siren I would recommend purchasing the additional one that is available.

    Good base system Posted by: Twill from: on Easy install and very good base system. Would like to see WIFI connectivity for management and alerts without a pay plan. Would also like to see integration with cameras and other home automation.

    Great Product Posted by: EJJJ from: on Hello Everyone, I just purchased the SimpliSafe alarm system and its better than expected. Its actually cheaper to go on their website to purchase individual components instead of purchased from elsewhere.

    so far, so good! Posted by: theycametoboston from: on We bought the system for our vacation home. reviews were good and prices were better than other home security services in the area. It was a breeze to set up an initialize. It was even easy to determine where I went wrong and to correct my mistake. Also so far, customer support has been helpful and timely. It seems funny to say. but I hope this is the last time I have to think about my home security system

    Simpli Safe Posted by: The2ndcanary from: on Easy to set up downloading the app was easy setting up is easy. No glitches so far no problems connecting to it to arm or disarm which we have had in the past with contracted alarm systems.

    Easy install – cant use app without monitoring pk Posted by: MichR from: Williamsburg VA on Husband wanted this for Christmas and was very happy – so easy to install. I called customer service just for some questions – very professional and knowledgeable. Only negative is it has an app to work with, but cant use app if you do not purchase their monitoring package. Annoyed by that as their commercials and website lead you to believe otherwise.
