Our alarm systems will give you a peace of mind while away or in your apartment, condo, or house.
We are a Honeywell authorized dealer, the largest security company in America.
Often the system you choose will be connected to a LTE communicator, which will allow you to access your wireless home security system, check sensors, set timers, and more directly from your phone or other smart device. *Phone line monitoring is still available.*
Not to mention, our 24/7 alarm monitoring station offers round the clock surveillance at reasonable costs. This gives us the ability to make sure that every part of your building is monitored at all times! Monitoring is OPTIONAL. We gladly install alarm systems that ring an exterior bell or siren and do not send signals to a monitoring station.
We install non-proprietary systems. Some companies install alarm systems with proprietary technology, meaning you are locked in and only your installing company can service your system or provide monitoring. At Reed Brothers Security, customers stay with us by choice and our monitoring customers have never been sold to an outside provider.
Before making a decision on which device is best for your needs, give us a call to schedule an appointment for one of our very knowledgeable estimators to come out and provide an estimate (510) 652-2477.
Make it harder for burglars to break into your home by installing window bars.
Whereas you can’t absolutely prevent a burglary, you sure can make it harder for burglars to enter your home with window bars. One estimate of property crime says that 6 out of every 10 burglaries begin with entry through a window at the back of the house. Many burglars are opportunists who simply ease wider an already open window. Other times they break the glass and reach in to release the window locks. You can prevent such forced entry by installing window bars on all downstairs windows and upstairs windows that are accessible from a flat roof, drainpipe or other easy access point.
When considering window guards there are a couple of safety concerns to address:
Window bars can block egress from buildings since they are designed to block entry through windows. When a specific window is part of the path of egress it must be designed to open from the inside without any special (specific) knowledge. Specific knowledge refers to keys, codes, access cards or fobs, or any other special device required to open the window guard. The usual standard is 5 lbs. of pressure or less to activate a paddle or button that will release the window guard and provide an egress path.
Fire releases are only required on bedrooms, they are not required on bedrooms that have another means of egress directly to the exterior.
If you choose to secure your windows with window guards, you have the options of installing standard pre-fab guards or custom guards. We can custom make just about any design you want. Call us for an estimate.

Intercom and Telephone Entry Systems are access control products that gives you the ability to talk to an individual before letting them through the main entrance or other points of entry.
An intercom system is a stand-alone voice communication system controlling an electric strike that is installed on building. It provides two way audio communication between the caller and the receiver. Some intercom systems incorporate video to identify visitors trying to gain access.
Residential Telephone Entry Systems often us the same phone line as the residence. The entry system will ring your home phones allowing you to decide to let your guest through the gates or not. Most of these systems can call up to three pre-programmed numbers and the gate can be controlled remotely by phones anywhere.
DOOR AND DOOR HARDWARE
We don’t just replace damaged doors, we install doors with security in mind.
We understand that thieves attack doors with brute force and crowbars. So we install steel stiffened metal doors. We design and make custom full height stainless steel latch guards and install full height “piano hinge” hinges to increase the security of wood, aluminum and glass, and sheet metal doors.
Of course, we also install Grade 1 door hardware such as Medeco or Mul-T-lock locks, heavy duty closers, door alarms (both stand alone and system integrated) and many other devices that further secure your door openings.
We are access control experts as well and door hardening experts so we can help you with systems and credentials as well.
If your situation doesn’t call for a steel stiffened door with all the door hardening devices, we can also install wood doors, foam filled doors, or aluminum and glass storefront doors. We have worked hard to design custom hardware that when combined with traditional grade 1 locks and closers will provide the securest possible door for your application.
