Safe, Sound, and Savings

We understand the challenges of today's homeowners. From competing mortgage rates to bidding wars on dream homes, the responsibility of home ownership can weigh heavily.

According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) annual report on insurance trends, Oregon saw a 33% increase in mortgage insurance rates between 2007 and 2016.

These higher insurance costs impact everyone, from home owners, second home owners, and renters, who may pay higher rent to make up for increased insurance rates.

Many try to mitigate these costs by accepting more liability through higher deductibles. Unfortunately,  we've found that when an incident occurs, the out-of-pocket costs are borne by you, the consumer.

 

Fortunately, A & E Security and Electronic Solutions can help you defend against these costs.

 

  • Invest in a Security System.

    Having an alarm can deter burglars and may lower your insurance cost.

  • Upgrade your old or inoperable Security System.

    Depending on the equipment you already have, and if you purchased it from A & E Security, you may be eligible for our Buy Back, Buy Up program, enabling you to get the newest equipment for HALF PRICE. You can ensure your newer alarm texts you when folks simply enter and exit your home.

  • Use a single app on multiple devices.

    A quality Security System will provide a single app you can use on any device, enabling you to set your alarm, disarm your alarm, raise your garage door or unlock your door.

  • Install fire sensors.

    In addition to smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, fire sensors can alert the fire department when a fire starts, giving you time to get your loved ones out of the burning home as well as increase fire department response time.

 

With the realities of crime and natural disasters like wild fires, the unexpected can occur at any time and catch you off-guard.

Taking these basic steps may not only reduce your insurance premiums but protect you from sustaining out-of-pocket losses.

The same principles as the story above apply to businesses as well. In addition to Security System measures, we have products that can decrease your business's operating costs.

SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) phones are one of the hottest trends in the telecommunication industry today. SIP phones are IP (Internet Protocol) telephones that enable your Internet service provider to integrate basic phone capabilities with web, email, online chat and more.

Here's how a SIP phone system may benefit your business:

  • Cost Effective
    SIP systems offer low monthly rates which means more saving on your phone system to put back into your growing business.

  • Mobility
    When you get your SIP phone connected to the Internet, you can make phone calls anywhere in the world.

  • Integration
    Some SIP phones deliver rich enterprise telephony capabilities integrating to your Outlook contacts, CRM systems, and business applications through thousands of Android apps.

 

The reduced hardware costs and simplicity of routing your company's calls over the Internet can mean huge savings on your monthly telephone bill.

Learn more about the different types of phones available, how the system can be integrated into your Internet, enabling communication to anyone, anywhere in the world, without incurring exorbitant fees.

There are so many other useful SIP phone features and benefits that can enhance your business.

Fire Alarms with Mass Notification and Instant Alerts

Commercial Fire Alarms with mass notification are often used to call people to action in the event of impending danger such as fire, dangerous weather, terrorist, tsunami, explosion or even invasion.

​Mass notification systems may also give specific instructions based on the type of emergency. For example, for a tornado warning, the instructions may be to shelter in place, or for a chemical spill it may be to report to a specific safe area within the building. In the event of a fire, the instructions would be to evacuate the building.

When these events occur key employees and staff are often tasked with coordinating and implementing safety protocol procedures to make sure every-thing runs smoothly. Instant notifications of critical fire alarms instantly help key staff to be aware of the issue at the same time and coordinate together to proceed

with their plan of action.

Instant notifications of fire alarm events are the perfect solution for hotels, resorts, K-12 schools, colleges, universities, governmental and municipal buildings.
