SafeMart – Protection for Your Home and Family (with Giveaway)

by Jennifer Sikora

Before our big move, I lived in a neighborhood that had always been safe. It was in a prominent area where middle class people lived and also had condos where older couples lived. It seemed like the perfect neighborhood to live in.

However, a masked intruder began terrorizing our neighborhood one house at a time. It worried all the ladies who lived on the street, and I was especially nervous one December morning when I stepped out and saw a man’s footprints that led to my bedroom window where he had been hanging out the night before. I wanted some kind of protection to help me feel safe and secure.

When we moved to a new home, I got my first taste of having an alarm system and that was THE best feeling in the world. I went to bed at night with an added peace knowing that the police would be to my house in an instant if someone broke in.

We recently moved into another home that did not come with an alarm. I would have loved to take the one from our old house, but because the residence was a rental and the alarm was a wired alarm, it had to stay put. Now, thanks to SafeMart and LiveWatch Alarm Monitoring, I am now 100% protected again.

The two-way communication – microphone for emergencies made me feel safe knowing that if there was an emergency, I could use the panel immediately and easily to communicate with the central station and it would call the police or fire department.

I also felt really good about the Crash and Smash technology which guaranteed that even if an intruder smashed the security system, it would still send a signal to the central station alerting them to the emergency.

The system itself was also really easy to use. The Fire, Medical and Police buttons made it really obvious how I should notify the proper emergency personnel in the event of an emergency and the iPhone app and web interface made managing the system a breeze.

I wasn’t sure if I’d use the remote features, like the iPhone app, but being able to monitor my home in real-time has been one of my absolute favorite parts of having the SafeMart Alarm System. The interactive alarm monitoring service helps me to stay informed and control my alarm system remotely using an iPhone app and my computer.

About SafeMart:

SafeMart is America’s #1 choice for professional-grade home and commercial security solutions, with a focus on delighting customers. With roots in security going back more than 30 years, SafeMart’s exclusive Plug & Protect® technology provides custom security systems with easy wireless activation.

SafeMart sent me the GE Simon XTi to review. One thing I loved right off the bat is that I did not need anyone to come and install it for me. Being that it is wireless, installation was absolutely simple and effortless!

Inside the box, I found the monitor, the motion sensor, the image sensor, and the door sensors. Within an hour, my husband had it hooked up and ready to go! We didn’t need an installer and were able to place the system at our convenience.

Setting up your alarm system is a simple and easy process

When I decided on SafeMart for home security, a SafeMart security consultant called and made sure I understood all the options and the different functions that the system provided. Then, they helped me set up the system with all the right emergency contacts and settings for the system.  After that, it was shipped it to my front door. Each piece of the alarm system was labeled to help make installation really easy (like I said, less than an hour!).

After I received the alarm and my husband placed it in our home, a SafeMart installation specialist called to run a check on the work to make sure that it was properly installed and communicating with the central station. Then, we got a few days in “test mode” so that we had a few days to practice before completing the activation process.

 

 

The monitor is a touch screen which makes setting it easy and it has tons of extra functions. For example, on the monitor you can:

  • See weather reports right on your screen
  • See if a door or window is open or closed
  • With added options, you can even have it turn on your lights!
The website and the app have even more functionality.  I’m able to:

  • Arm and disarm my system from anywhere
  • Set up alerts and notifications for when people come in or out of my home
  • Use reminders to remind me to arm my system by a certain time
  • Receive images sent to my phone from the image sensor 

The system that I’m using is the Simon XTi. It combines all the great home security features with the convenience of a touch screen making it really easy to use.

The Simon XTi sells for $299, but for now, it is on sale for only $199 with the end of the summer special sale going on and the monthly monitoring is between $10 and $40 compared to most home security companies which offer monitoring for $60+.

While price is no object when I know I am protected from intruders trying to harm my family, SafeMart offers really low pricing.  They only ask for a 1-year contract (compared to the normal 3-5 year contract), their monitoring prices are lower than anyone else’s who offer their level of service and there are no gimmicks or tricks when it comes to the equipment pricing.

Enter to win a Simon XTi

One lucky winner is going to get a completely customized GE Simon XTi home security system complete with:

  • Touchscreen interface system
  • Wireless communicator
  • iPhone, iPad or Android App
  • 4 door and window sensors
  • 1 wireless image sensor
  • 1 pet immune motion detector
  • 1 month of LiveWatch Alarm Monitoring

I actually currently have the old GE Simon, and would love to upgrade that one by integrating this one into my system. I just found out about it last night and was amazed by all of the features it has. It would also be nice for when we sleep, as the old GE Simon, has lights that stay on 24/7 without turning off, on the new GE Simon X TI, you should be able to make the front panel sleep, which would obviously get rid of the lights coming from it.

We have had our cars broken into~ which makes me nervous that our home will be next. When we built our home we put all the wiring in for a home security system but never seem to have found the money to finish the project, I am afraid that we won’t finish it till something happens :( which is sad.

Our home has been broken into twice. We live in a rural area, so the neighbors are not close by. We had an alarm that wasn’t armed the first time we were broken into. They took everything we had of value including every piece of jewelry I ever had (except my wedding ring and a pair of earrings I was wearing). The second time – almost a year later – the alarm was armed and they broke my back door, entered the living room thereby setting off the motion detector and piercing sirens, then hastily retreated and were caught by the sheriff’s office breaking into another home that day. Our alarm now needs to be replaced and we need a new monitoring company, so we really could use this prize!

There was a neighbor that was robbed before we moved to the neighborhood. I have 8 children and even though we live in a pretty safe area, I’d feel much more comfortable with a system like this in place.

Sadly yes, our neighbor was recently broken into and they literally cleared the whole house out.

Yes, amazingly I was mugged at the side of my house (although I don’t think the mugger knew it was my house, he’d just seen me walking up the street).
He was trying to get my canvas bag off my shoulder, which only had my ID and 20 dollars in it! He pushed me to the ground. It was winter, and I reached into my pocket and took out a black mitten and pretended that it was a cell phone and told him he should run away NOW because I was calling the police! For a fraction of a second he tried to decided whether to run or stay on (or hit me), and then he ran. My wits got me out of this one!

Normally a quiet neighborhood, but recently we had a night of major vandalism. 12 of the 14 houses were hit. Either cars, mailboxes, houses or windows. We were one of the ones lucky enough to get all 4. They spray painted our truck and car with profanity, spray painted our house, busted a car window and spray painted our mailbox. They did over $400,000 in damage to the neighborhood.

We just moved into our first home, so I’d love to win this! So far there have been no crimes that I know of, but in in our last place (a rental) my husband had his bike stolen once.

I live in a rough neighborhood. It’s not ideal, but in order to get into our first home we had to make some sacrafices and location ended up being one of them. Extra security would be awesome!

Yes, Someone broke into a home a few places down from us in our old neighborhood. We moved shortly after and was glad we did, because a couple weeks later after we moved, the home we lived in was broke into and the window they got in through was my daughters nursery at one time.

We live on a cul-de-sac, and it’s very safe, but there still has been some vandalism with cars. Once a few years back, there was a high speed chase! I guess the young male driver turned onto the wrong street. He didn’t realize ours is a dead end.
