We already have a security system why do we need SierraSentry?
Good security systems offer many benefits, especially when the perimeter of a monitored structure is breached. SierraSentry services augment electronic security systems by physically observing the external and internal status of the home, performing status checks of conditions that cannot be monitored electronically and reporting information that is important to you. Most electronic security system will not report forgotten trash left in the kitchen, a thermostat set too high, an insect or rodent problem, a low propane tank, or the collapsed deck under the weight of the snow. SierraSentry will report all of these observations, and more.
