The Lutron RadioRA 2 System

Mar 12, 2014   //   by admin   //   Audio Video, Blog  //  No Comments


Lutron’s RadioRa2 is a wireless total home control system that allows you to manage home lighting, shading and energy usage through a wireless transmitter and receiver.  Instead of turning on and off the dozens of light switches in your home, you can create “scenes”, such as a bedtime scene, that with the push of one button changes all of the settings in your home.  RadioRa2 components can be installed within your existing light switches to create a stable, wireless, easy to use system.

You can save money on electricity using their application to create timers than turn lights on and off without having to see the ugly timers on your walls. A recent Petrone client is in the process of selling their home and they have created a “realtor scene” in which the realtor hits one button and the home creates the optimal staged environment.  This can be done remotely, as well, saving you from having to be at home.

Lutron RadioRa2 Features

Total home control at the touch of a button

Temperature control for energy savings and convenience

Customizable, flexible system to meet your needs

Components made to blend easily with your décor

Consumer Electronic Pricing On The Rise

Jul 18, 2011   //   by admin   //   Blog, Uncategorized  //  No Comments

The price of consumer electronic goods such as computers, plasmas, and LED displays will be rising in the near future due to disaster in Japan.
There are already signs of an increase in the price of memory chips and display panels for computers and game consoles due to problems at Japanese factories.
While there are few reports of actual damage at electronic production facilities, impacts on the transportation and power infrastructure will result in disruption of supply, resulting in rising prices. Components impacted will include;

  • Plasma displays
  • LED and LCD displays
  • Surround sound processors and amplifiers

Even though many electronic companies in this industry are based elsewhere, many pieces of the final product are manufactured in Japan. These necessary components are already on backorder.
Just today, I was checking the status of a 55″ LG plasma that was out for repair. I was informed that even though this display was expedited, the parts needed would not be available if they were not stocked.
My best advice to consumers at this point is to make sure all your equipment is maintained and cleaned on a regular basis. Remember, the better quaility the equipment, the longer it will last. Do your research before your next electronic purchase.

Video Surveillance Provides Total Security

Jan 31, 2011   //   by   //   Blog, Surveillance  //  No Comments

Monitor your house from anywhere!  Many home protection companies can offer you an alarm system, but Petrone Technology Group allows you to monitor your possessions from anywhere.  Our video cameras allow you to have the power of not only alarms but also visuals.  Visuals are what a person needs to deter criminals and also monitor any disturbance if anything did occur. Petrone gives you visual surveillance, personal control, and highest quality parts and installation in the industry.

If a person is in court trying a case, they can have written statements and verbal testimonies.  But if you have actual visual evidence, you win! The public and authorities can actually see the truth.  With Petrone Technology Group you cover all your security needs.  When a criminal knows that a building has surveillance monitoring, they don’t want to break in. If they are naive enough to try, you will actually have more evidence than most authorities will have to prosecute them.

With some security systems, you can see your property from a home monitor.  With the system that we install, you can see your home from anywhere.  You can watch from your house and job.  You can even monitor your house from your cellphone!  The police can try to piece together a crime, but when Petrone Technology Group protects you, you have all the information.

We pride ourselves on having the top quality technology and craftsmanship.  If a person settles for another brand, you will get false security and false alarms.  The technology we use has the lowest false alarm instance in the industry.  They also provide 100% customer satisfaction for the duration of your product.  The Petrone Technology Group crafts security systems around your budget and NEEDS.

Get the power of safety, control, and quality by installing a home monitoring system today.  You deserve it!

The next positive thing

Dec 21, 2010   //   by   //   Blog  //  No Comments

Negativity is rampant. Anger is contagious. The trend of crime and bad choices can make a person start to lose hope in progress and the hearts of men. When the morning alarm sounds, how does a good hearted individual take on the day?: THE NEXT POSITIVE THING. When times get hard, the only answer is the next positive thing.

Whether we like it or not, crime exists. We cannot wish it away. But Information is King! And in these uncertain times,  access to information is a tool that puts a customer ahead of the criminal. To ensure security, it is key to be the opposite of the criminal; In the emotional . A sharp criminal may be skilled technically, but EMOTIONALLY, they are unfocused. This is evident in their occupation! A criminal acts out of desperation. In poker, they call it ‘The Flip’.  This is when a card player acts out of frustrations. When a person acts out of his emotions, rather than his mind, it is a recipe for disaster. They walk into a trap.

Through Hi-Def monitoring and Sensory Detection systems, Petrone Security let’s you have the information criminals don’t. It establishes a technical dominance that burglars don’t want to compete with. It also sets a trap that burglars don’t know exists.  When a crime is committed you have police squad, forensics team, and sometimes,even detectives. What if you could surpass all these elements and actually inform POLICE, instead of them cluing you in.

Of course, the police are the skilled task force to wrap up the crime, but possessing Petrone gives you the ability to give authorities the necessary information they need.What if there are no witnesses or obvious clues for the police? Forensics is high-tech, but what if there is no definite traces to pinpoint a criminal? And detective work is just a more detailed representation of the police. And those are the guys who found nothing. So you’re now dealing with fancier dressed authorities who have no information. Splendid.

Petrone is the bird’s eye. It is unbeatable, because it actually creates the highest level of certainty.

Check-in with your children!

Dec 21, 2010   //   by   //   Blog  //  No Comments

The love we have for our children is like no other. We want to protect and watch over them at all costs. No matter how old they get, they will always be on our minds. The truth is, we probably feel them more when they’re away.

In this day and age, our kids can be just as busy as us. The information and access to new computer gadgets is staggering. How do you compete with technology? The answer is….Technology. No matter how cool we try to be, as parents, its hard to compete with YouTube and Video Games. Look at Will Smith. He is the most popular actor in the world; He’s the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Undisputed Mr. Box Office. But to his kids, he’s the dude who married mommy.

But at the end of the day, Daddy is the guy that makes them feel safe. Mommy is the woman that knows their heart. Single parents have to try and fill BOTH roles. As parents, we believe in our children. And as far as the gap becomes in our social scenes, the people we call family will always be our home. No matter how many computer gadgets are created, the bond between Parent and Child is infinite belief. Besides, who else is gonna buy all that junk for them.

How do we maintain this security when we are away? It is impossible to be everywhere and with everybody we love. I can’t say Petrone Security System is a Time Machine, but it is one of the most elite tools to check-in with our children. Petrone Security System grants you the gift of multiple monitoring throughout your house. Our children always assure us they are safe. But we know, this chaotic world, many times doesn’t agree with their good faith. Having the knowledge and awareness of technology that safeguards life, is quite a bit more important than an I-Pod radio.

It is impossible to be everything to everybody. But, as a parent, we must try our hardest to let our children know we are always there for them. Through this knowledge, communication and our best wishes, we will try our best to make their path is as smooth as possible.

Regal Weapon

Regal Weapon

We all have the ability to cause hurt.  When a person makes the choice to act, whether physically or verbally, the action cannot be taken back. Imagine if this involves a gun.  As humans, we are very strong, but also very fragile. No matter how strong, successful or aware we may be, a gun has the last say. You can be a bodybuilder and a bullet really doesn’t care. This makes a gun powerful. But what happens when human flaw comes into the picture?

We all have the right to bear arms; One the liberties granted in our great Constitution. But this should be a last resort.  With a firearm, you do not want to act too quick, because every second is high intensity.  Every choice is life changing. Who wants the pressure?  With Petrone Security, you don’t have to take action.  Your security system does all the work.  Any adjustment to the system is just a click of a button. Wouldn’t you rather security from a lazy boy over re-enacting a Lethal Weapon Movie?

Even if, God forbid, you were robbed, You will know exactly what happened; and you can correct the wrong.  This is not the same story with a gun.

A firearm is a tool used many times to enforce liberty for people and nations. With Petrone, the greatest luxury of ever possessing a firearm will be not having to use it.

Be safe, Be cautious, and take care of yourself (and one another).
