Security … from the Company you Trust®

Toronto, May 2009

Sears Home Alarm addresses CARP members’ needs during difficult economic times. As the recession takes a bite out of Canadian incomes and household budgets, families and people on fixed incomes are looking to reduce household expenses where ever possible.

Sears Home Alarm has answered the call with an exciting new offering from one of the most trusted companies in Canada. Canadians should not have to sacrifice home security and quality monitoring during challenging times due to high cost. Some home owners have simply cancelled their alarm monitoring only to discover the terms of their home insurance have been compromised. Cancelling alarm monitoring generally results in higher premiums.

Sears Home Alarm is now offering a remarkable $14.95* monitoring rate. For CARP members the rate is frozen for at least 5 years*.

Sears Home Alarm offers two great programs. The first offering is for homeowners that already own alarm systems and have grown tired of paying $25. to $40. per month with other companies. Sears Home Alarm offers a take over program, which includes a full system diagnostic, back-up battery change and a short 1 year monitoring contract. Upgrades are available for those that want to update their alarm systems. Charges are as low as $99.* for an on site professional activation, diagnostic, and battery change.

Recessionary times, with higher unemployment, are often marked with an increase in property crime. The need for families to protect their homes has never been more important. For home owners without alarm systems, Sears Home Alarm offers new installations of state-of-the-art Honeywell alarm systems. With the installation of a new system, owners still benefit from the low $14.95 monitoring rate and the 5 year price guarantee. Alarm systems are generally customized for the home owner by a Sears Home Alarm consultant for each home. Packages that offer complete system ownership and warranties start at $299.* The Sears Home Alarm Plan include equipment, activation, training and professional installation.

Many CARP members are avid travelers, leaving homes empty for weeks and months at a time, while travelling the world and enjoying winters in a warmer climate. Additional peace of mind occurs with the knowledge that unoccupied homes can be monitored for burglary, fire, flood, freeze prevention and more. If there is a problem, help can be dispatched.

Sears Home Alarm has a long history of providing quality installation, monitoring, and service to customers in major centers across south central Ontario, greater Calgary, greater Edmonton, and greater Vancouver.

The Sears Home Alarm program opens a new chapter in the Canadian Residential Security Industry. SEARS HOME ALARM will challenge the current market long-term contract requirements and high monthly monitoring rates. As an additional bonus to CARP members, Sears Home Alarm will include a 1 year CARP membership (new or renewal), valuable Sears coupons redeemable at Sears on Furniture, Sleep Sets, Appliances, TVs and Home Entertainment systems purchase, and 2 months free monitoring with each new alarm activation or installation. Plus a 10% discount on all accessories purchased such as monitored smoke detectors, medical alert devices, and more!
