PBS Kids! Odd Squad Live! at the Morrison Center, part of the Velma V. Morrison Family Theatre Series.

Important Reminders

  • January often brings single digit temperatures. Be sure to keep your garage door closed to prevent plumbing from freezing.
  • Did you know that city regulations make you responsible for keeping the sidewalk in front of your house free of snow and ice? (If you live in an HOA community, the HOA may be responsible)
  • Deep snow could block your dryer vent to the outside. Be sure to keep it clear so air can vent freely. A blocked vent is a safety hazard and could cause a fire in the home.

How Smart Are YOU When it Comes to Smart Technology?

You don’t need to have a new house to take advantage of new home technology and you don’t even have to be a homeowner to make it worth your while. Your Smart technology follows you with every move. Stuck at the office working late while your programmed thermostat has ramped up the heat for your arrival three hours too early? No problem with Smart technology – use the app on your phone to control the temperature from the office. Flustered by distractions and you find yourself half way to work and you can’t remember closing the garage door? Smart technology allows you to control your garage door from your phone. Can’t tear yourself away from the game to unlock the door for a friend? No worries just use your mobile device. Getting home late, and want to be greeted by a lighted home? -All part of the Smart system! With Valor’s unique line-up of home automation features, it’s like you have your own personal butler at home taking care of everything while you are away.

Seamless Integration of Your Smart Home

Along with wireless home security systems, Valor’s system for lighting control, thermostat control, keyless entry door locks, garage control, cameras and other Smart features connects all the key devices in your home, giving you smart, responsive automation and seamless control that you cannot get from stand-alone solutions. Best of all, your entire system can be controlled through one app, for total convenience wherever you go.

Valor Home Security offers customizable packages making it easier than ever to get a system that is unique to you, your home and your family needs. Along with security and home automation Valor also offers medical emergency pendants to seniors, covering all vulnerabilities within the home.

It is rare to find a company that will service home security systems to tenants. Why does Valor Home Security offer this? It’s easy. Valor’s business model allows you to own the wireless equipment outright that is used for the security system. With the no contract option you can stop the service in-between moves, and take the system with you. For a free in-home quote call Valor at, 208-514-4562 or visit the website at Monitoring packages start at only $24.95 with NO contracts.
