Residential Security

We realize that purchasing a security system is one of the most important investments you will make to ensure the protection of your home and family. Our goal is to prevent loss and avoid personal harm. Since every home and family is unique, we custom design security systems to best suit your individual needs. We do, however, offer very basic alarm systems as well. We specialize in making sure that your most precious assets are protected. We are a proud authorized Honeywell dealer and also offer Interlogix equipment.

With the technology changing in the blink of an eye we make sure to always bring our customers the best product and service available. Do you want to get rid of your home telephone service and make sure that your alarm system will still operate? We can do that! With our new 4G cellular communicators, your alarm system does not need a standard telephone line to call out. The system will simply use the cellular communicator. Do you want remote access to your system from any computer, Apple or Android device or tablet? We can do that! By having a cellular communicator for your alarm system this allows you to be able to check on your alarm system anytime from anywhere.

Do you want to be able to lock/unlock your door, turn a light on/off or have a video clip sent to you when your children come home from school? We can do that! With the new home automation devices that have come to the market recently, you can do all of those things with a touch of a button through one app on your smart device! You can even receive a text or email notification when any activity has taken place from your system.

 
Residential CCTV

More and more residential properties are being targeted for possessions held inside the property or the vehicles parked outside the home. A large number of our residential customers have found CCTV cameras to be a useful deterrent against unwanted visitors and suspicious activity. With using the most up to date CCTV technology, we have protected multiple homes. The digital recordings of attempted burglaries can be used as evidence to prosecute individuals or groups for various crimes.

Another great use for CCTV in your home is to check in on your family or pets throughout the day. Do you have a home office, gun cabinet or other areas in your home that you want to keep supervised? With our new wireless technology, you can look in live at any time and have seconds of video clips emailed right to you. This system does require the use of high-speed internet.

Residential Fire

At Dillard Alarm Company, we strongly promote life safety. That is why we believe it is crucial to have a monitored smoke detector or heat detector in your home. Although non-monitored, battery operated smoke detectors will alert you of a fire, you are still relying on your ability to hear the detector early enough to get out of your home safely. Monitored fire protection can give you added peace of mind while you are away from your home. You no longer need to rely on neighbors to see or smell smoke before calling the fire department. Our 24-hour Central Station is notified as soon as smoke is detected in the home and then they will notify you.

Another essential piece of life safety is to have a monitored carbon monoxide detector in your home. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless, tasteless and highly toxic gas that can be fatal in large doses. It is important to evacuate the premises if the CO alarm does sound. Also, keep in mind that CO detectors do expire every seven years. To find out more information about this topic, check out CPS.GOV

In our experience, most burglaries occur due to easy access into accessible doors. This allows the burglar plenty of time to cause damage and gain access into your home. Dillard Alarm Company specializes in securing your property, allowing easy access for wanted visitors. By investing in a secure lock for the accessible doors you are protecting yourself and your family from an unwelcomed visitor. Not only do you have a secure lock for the doors on your home but you also have the ability to integrate those locks with your alarm system.

Home automation is playing a key role in homeownership these days. Having the ability to lock or unlock your door for your smartphone while you are not home is becoming very popular and we have the products to give you that ability! You will no longer have to hand out keys for your house and worry about if that key gets into the wrong hands. Now you can simply give that person a code for the lock and have it automatically arm or disarm the security system if you wish when that code is entered. Does that person only need to have access during certain times of the day? If so, we can do that! You have the ability to control what days and times you would like that code to work.

Have you ever considered the lock that secures your front door to be a life safety device? Think about it...with our new Z-Wave locks you have the ability to create a scene that when a monitored smoke detector goes into alarm it will immediately send a signal to the lock to make sure that it is unlocked. Imagine the extra time that it will take the Fire Department to break down the door because it is locked. That extra time is very important in the event of a fire.
