Summer is here – the season for vacations and lake adventures. But while you’re out playing, is your home safe? Did you remember to adjust the thermostat? DLSS Systems and Tel-Star Technologies offer security and network systems that allow home and business owners to keep tabs on their property from a smartphone.
DLSS Systems and Tel-Star Technologies are partner businesses that operate as two squads of the same team. Mike Eubanks and Kevin Dyson, co-owners, are longtime friends who established themselves with larger companies long ago. As technology evolved and the industry became increasingly consolidated, they discovered a growing number of customers falling through the cracks when it came to customer service and specific needs. Since the late ’90s, DLSS and Tel-Star Technologies have provided stellar communications, lighting and surveillance systems to a diverse roster, spanning casinos, small businesses and private residences.
Kevin Dyson, head of DLSS, has seen surveillance technology go from clunky cameras and stacks of VHS tapes to inconspicuous digital cameras and cloud-based archives. “The technology has come a long way,” says Dyson, noting that customers can save thousands of dollars on superior equipment compared to industry standards of the previous era.
Today, security and surveillance equipment is faster, less costly and more reliable, considering improvements in connectivity and archival storage and retrieval. Powered by Alarm.com, an industry leader in surveillance technology, DLSS was ahead of the curve, featuring such systems long before they became widespread. Today, DLSS systems include 24/7 response, fire alarms, Wi-Fi cameras, cloud video storage and mobile monitoring apps for smartphone and tablet.
Dyson explains, “You can watch camera feeds in real time from your smartphone, tablet or PC. And the footage is automatically stored in the cloud for ninety days.” The convenience of checking in on one’s property while fishing or enjoying a campfire is enhanced by the security of cloud-based storage. Gone are worries of lost or stolen security footage, and access is limited to only those with explicit permission.
Further, security systems don’t even rely on phone lines anymore. Systems are completely self-contained and communicate directly with the control center, adding another layer of security and convenience. Such perks are ideal for rural properties and vacation homes.
In fact, last fall, DLSS and Tel-Star Technologies opened a new office in Grove with rural markets in mind. “We’re the only security system company with an office in the region,” notes Dyson. The office is staffed every day, continuing a tradition of serving customers often overlooked by larger companies. The expanded service area improves accessibility for home and business owners who would otherwise find it difficult to obtain swift installation of security systems from certified experts.
And service does not end with security. For all communications and connectivity needs, including high speed Internet service and “smart home” connectivity, Tel-Star Technologies is the perfect match. Utilizing smartphone or tablet apps, lighting, heating and cooling – even irrigation control – is right in the palm of your hand.
Technology improvements translate to energy – and money – savings. The added convenience is a welcome bonus. Those who invest in DLSS and Tel-Star Technologies services gain peace of mind, too. Even from across the country, checking in on the safety of property or turning off the sprinklers as a storm rolls in is only a few screen taps away.
