Protecting you home and your family is of the utmost importance. About every thirteen seconds a home intrusion is committed, and homes without any type of security system are far more likely to be targeted. Luckily, technological developments along side homeowner participation have begun to lower those odds. For thirty-five years QEI Security & Technology has been working to provide secure living to Lowcountry residents. President Chad Sanders and his team of skilled technicians work with the homeowners, accounting for their security needs, before installing the system most suited to the home. While homeowners can choose from a variety of systems that range from the basic system, which includes devices such as a touch control panel, motion detectors, and a key fob. You can also upgrade the system by adding interactive security, or security cameras, and by upgrading to smart home security.

QEI’s most recent security addition is TEQHoM INTERACTIVE, which allows homeowners security at their fingertips. Powered by, the system allows its user to control the security system from any type of smart device such as a tablet or iPhone. So were you to leave your house without arming the security system or even closing the garage door, you would be able to act quickly and easily control your home’s functions. But, owners are also able to turn on notifications, allowing them to receive text messages if anything at the home seems out of place, such as a porch light left on.

Another benefit for TEQHoM INTERACTIVE users is that the system doesn’t just allow for efficient home security, but also allows users complete control of the home. QEI, which was Quality Electric until eight years ago, specialized in technology installation, and still administers these services on top of security coverage, giving home owners the opportunity to not only control their safeguarding systems, but also other aspects of the home such as the sprinkler system, entertainment and lighting. For homeowners interested in security and convenience, QEI will be sponsoring the upcoming Daniel Island Home Show, equipped with a booth, in which they can provide further consultation and information.

Get ready to mark your calendars, because the annul Charleston Home + Outdoor Living Festival is finally taking place through April 22 to 23, and you won’t want to miss it. Whether you are looking to build, renovate or just need some inspiration, the festival is host to some of the best home professionals in the greater Charleston area, including one of its sponsors, Ultimate Gutter Guard by Southern. Storm rain is an inescapable element of living in the Lowcountry, and can be the cause of devastating home damage such as roof and siding leakage as well as the destruction of your home’s foundation. That is why it is best that your gutters are installed and up to date. But, installing Ultimate Gutter Guard not only protects your home, it also ensures safety and low maintenance for the owner. The specialty gutters are composed of four parts, one of which is the curved hood, that locks onto the five inch gutter and shields it from the possibly of falling materials, such as leaves and twigs, from clogging up the drainage system. This eliminates the bothersome task, and the risks associated, with climbing up on that unstable ladder.

Ultimate Gutter Guard also provides an array of other services suited to make your life efficient and hassle free, including the application of replacement windows, vinyl siding and trim, attic inculcation, and for homeowners interested in easy convenient, bathroom remodeling. Those looking to install safety equipment for the elderly or disabled have come to the perfect place; as we get older, getting in and out of the tub can become a daunting task. Luckily, the company can easily fix this problem by installing walk in tubs and showers. But, for those interested in revamping their bathrooms by adding new luster to an older room, the company is ready to provide, with the included benefit of the process only taking up to one day. This is because Ultimate Gutter Guard leaves the original foundation in tact, gracefully applying custom molded liners, or “wraps” to fit over your shower or tub so they look brand new. If you are looking for convenience and utility with great customer service, stop over to the Charleston Home and Outdoor Living Festival at the Volvo Stadium on Daniel Island to learn more.
