Frequently Asked Questions

1. What’s the difference between a fire alarm and a fire monitoring system?

A standard fire alarm connects to your electrical system, sounding a siren when smoke is detected. A fire monitoring system connects to a central station that sounds a siren while dispatching the fire department.

2. Can JSS monitor my security system even though I bought it elsewhere?

Yes. We service and monitor all security and fire alarm systems on the market today.

3. Can JSS upgrade my existing security and fire system?

Yes, in most cases. If not, we suggest an alternate plan at a reasonable cost.

4. What security system does JSS suggest if I rent a home?

Renters should consider a wireless system that can move to any location.

5. Can JSS help me if I’ve never had a security system before?

6. Is it expensive to install security cameras?

The cost varies. Factors include: number of cameras; type of lens and recording device; color and resolution; and lighting.

7. Will I be able to view my security cameras from a remote location?
