10 Things To Do In Arizona

We all know that the summer heat is starting to approach and before you know it we’ll be locked inside enjoying our Air Conditioning trying our hardest to not walk outside onto the face of the sun. So while you still can, get out and see some of the amazing things Arizona has to offer, let us worry about keeping your home safe.

Don’t forget, while you’re gone you can control your thermostat, check on the dogs with access to your cameras, unlock the door for your neighbor to let the dogs out, and make sure all your appliances are off, all with your phone and the Alarm.com

  1. The Grand Canyon

Yup, that was a pretty obvious one, but it’s one that has to make it on the list, I mean, we live in the “Grand Canyon State” so as an Arizonian you have to get out and see it at least once. There’s people from all over the world who fly here just to see it and we live within a day’s drive of it, it’s definitely something we all take for granted.


What is it about the Grand Canyon that makes it so appealing for individuals and families? First, it’s the massive size of this gorge that was created over eons by rushing waters. Who knew that water had such an incredible ability to carve stone? Secondly, it’s simply breathtaking. Most of us think of rocks as being gray and rather dull, but the Grand Canyon bucks that trend brilliantly. You’ve never seen such a bounty of hues embedded in the rock face as you see when you stop by this national treasure. And finally, the Grand Canyon attracts plenty of wildlife. Who knows what kinds of creatures and birds you’ll see when you visit!

If you’re looking for the opportunity to commune with nature in a setting that’s unlike any other in the world, it’s time to get in your car or RV and head to the Grand Canyon. Already been there but having visitors from out of town come to stay as your guest for a while? Take them sightseeing, too. It’s a great excuse to spend time together in a place that’s on tons of people’s bucket lists.

  1. Oak Creek Canyon and Slide Rock State Park

One of the few places in Arizona where you can see the beautiful colors of fall. You can find gorgeous, scenic hiking trails and just spend the day hiking and enjoying nature. Also, while you’re there be sure to stop at Slide Rock. Slide Rock appeals to the inner kid in all of us, who doesn’t want to slide down a naturally made water slide?! It’s one of the more well known spots with Arizonians so be prepared for crowds. Luckily Slide Rock is between Sedona and Flagstaff, so if you decide you’re done a little early, you can always go get dinner in one of those two beautiful cities.slide-rock

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with planning an all-day excursion to Slide Rock State Park, rather than making it just a quick trip. Has it been a while since your last picnic? Ironically, picnics were, at one time, a favorite activity for couples and families. Why not restore this tradition and pack a basket or cooler with some munchies? Opt for fun items like specialty sandwiches, cold fried chicken and some homemade sweet treats to keep the energy high.

Don’t forget to bring plenty of refreshing beverages, too, as it can get hot quickly in Arizona! Oh, and a nice big blanket is always preferred to eating on the ground. Bonus points if you remember to bring a change of clothes —Slide Rock is exciting, but it necessitates dry clothing after a thrilling dip!

  1. Papago Park

The massive sandstone buttes of Papago Park are what really set it apart from other parks. The park has quite a few attractions, it houses the Tomb of Governor George Wiley Paul Hunt, who has an interesting history as well as an interesting name, Hunt set a national recored by being elected to the first, second, third, sixth, seventh, either and tenth term as Arizona’s governor. Aside from his tomb there’s the famous Hole in the Rock, an Exercise Course, Fishing Lagoons, a Baseball Facility, Golf Course and a Softball Complex.

You’ll find a variety of ways to get your exercise in at Papago Park, starting with easy, moderate or tougher hiking. Be sure you bring along a backpack filled with everything you need to stay quenched and safe as you traverse the multitude of Papago Park pathways. Who knows what you’ll find around the next bend.

Like all parks, it’s an ever-changing scene just waiting to be discovered. Go solo or bring a friend on your next adventure through this Phoenix area hotspot — and remember that it really can get hot there! Sunscreen is a must-have whether you’re “roughing it” for a few hours or a whole day.

  1. Cathedral Rock

As we mentioned above, there’s nothing like sticking true to the Arizonian roots of going for a hike. Cathedral Rock has three saddle points, once you hike out to each point the views are breathtaking. This is no beginners hike though, it’s a pretty steep hike, mind you it’s no Everest but it’s nothing to joke about, you’ll get your cardio in for the day.


To prepare for this kind of activity, we suggest you start by examining your own abilities. If it’s tough for you to climb a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing, you may want to go to Cathedral Rock to take pictures, not to perform strenuous walking. However, if you are fairly confident in your abilities to safely get up and down rocking hills without worry, why not take on the Cathedral Rock challenge?

One suggestion is to be sure you hike with a friend or several buddies. It’s always a good idea to opt for a “safety first” attitude whenever you head out on a ramble. Besides, what could be a better way to make memories with friends or even colleagues? Climbing Cathedral Rock could be the best team-building activity your company ever experiences!

  1. Antelope Canyon

Antelope Canyon has recently been in the headlines all over the world, a photographer went on an expedition here and snapped the picture of a lifetime while exploring, that picture ended up selling for $6.5 Million. Who knows, maybe with your adventure you could get a picture worth $7 Million, just remember the company that gave you the idea! It’s definitely a day trip and an intense hike, but by far one of the coolest ones you can take in Arizona.


Be advised that because the Antelope Canyon is part of and controlled by the Navajo Nation, the Canyon’s main entrance is gated and can only be accessed if you are on a guided tour. This isn’t a problem, though — plenty of tours happen on a regular basis.

Besides, it’s fun to travel through this water-created slot canyon with a group. Who knows what kind of conversation you’ll have, and from where your hiking companions hail. Antelope Canyon is known worldwide, so you might just hear a wealth of different languages spoken during your journey through these magnificent natural rock arches, which the Navajos believe have spiritual capabilities.

  1. Meteor Crater

This is the world’s best preserved meteorite impact site on Earth, it’s nearly one mile across and more than 550 feet deep. Meteor Crater also has an RV park so pack of the family, hop in the RV and spend a weekend there! There’s also a museum at the site with everything from space exploration exhibits to the actual remains of the meteorite that caused that massive crater.

New to the idea of heading out just to see the place a meteor hit? You might be wondering what makes it so exciting. Trust us. It’s pretty spectacular. It also brings home the reality of how big meteors are and how important they can be to the topography of a planet. Plus, if you’re into photography, you’ll love the photo ops around Meteor Crater. It’s truly unlike anything else you’re going to find in Arizona, and it has its own type of beauty.meteor-crater

Kids who love science will also appreciate a trip to Meteor Crater. Your youngster may even find it so compelling that it becomes the basis for a winning science fair or classroom project related to astronomy. You really never know what you’ll find until you head out the door and make a trip to Meteor Crater.

  1. Petrified Forest National Park.

Cool doesn’t even begin to describe Petrified Forest National Park! As soon as you get close, you’ll be blown away by the spectacular look and feel of this area. It seems like something straight out of a fantasy novel or movie, but it’s completely real and ready for you and your family to explore.


The history to this park is too much to put into our blog post, but it’s definitely worth the trip to go visit and learn more about. The park is known for it’s fossils, more specifically it’s fossilized fallen trees from about 225 million years ago. Your budding paleontologist will appreciate taking their gear and spending time searching for fossilized remains. It’s possible they could unearth something millions of years old!

The park is amidst the Painted Desert so it’s a 2 for 1 deal when you visit this park. As you might suspect, the Painted Desert offers wondrous sights and views. You haven’t lived until you’ve been there at least once! The scenery alone is worth the trip, the added bonus is getting to read about it’s history and see what a trip it has had throughout the years on earth. Education and entertainment, plus a little heart-healthy hiking mixed together — what could be better?

  1. Desert Botanical Gardens

Learn about desert plants from around the world in an awesome controlled outdoor setting. The Gardens house more than 50,000 different desert plants all on display among 5 different themed trails. The trails demonstrate different topics such as desert living, plants and people of the Sonoran Desert, and desert wildflowers. While you’re there you can finish off the day with a meal at Gertrude’s restaurant or at the Patio Cafe.

Butterfly enthusiast at heart? You’ll adore a visit to the butterfly exhibit held every spring at the Desert Botanical Gardens. What you find out about these delightful, winged creatures may just change the way you look at them in your everyday life. Plus, you can discover what they love to eat so you can attract them to your own backyard!

The Desert Botanical Gardens is also terrific for those with or without a green thumb. Even if you have trouble landscaping on a minimal basis, you can appreciate the efforts the preservationists take in keeping this wonderfully natural place alive and brilliant. Bring your cameras, smiles and great attitude. It’s a trip that is definitely more adventure than anything else.

  1. Four Corners Monument

Can’t decide between visiting Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico or Utah? You don’t have to! Take a day trip and see four states and visit all four at the same time. This is one of the coolest experiences you and your family can have. When else would you be able to play a game of “Twister” in four states simultaneously? Or hopscotch from state to state in a matter of seconds? It’s totally fun and makes for great videos!

The marker was originally put into place in 1912. Who says that our ancestors didn’t have a great sense of what would make a wonderful tourist attraction? They knew that if they built the monument, people would flock to it — and they were right.

You’ll find a few small cafes but it’s very rare and remote seeing as it’s on Navajo land. So make sure you bring your necessities with you, there’s no running water, electricity or telephones at the monument. You’ll also want to make sure you have your sunscreen on hand. The sun is burning bright, and there isn’t a ton of shade in this fun place. A hat or even a parasol would be perfect for the adventure.

  1. Saguaro National Park

Arizona is home to the world’s largest cacti, called the saguaro. The saguaro is the symbol of the American west, and it’s an impressive one. A single saguaro cactus can reach heights of up to 70 feet, about as tall as six story building! Take a trip to the park which is just outside of Tucson, you can check out the visitor’s center and take in the museum exhibits, slide shows and the gift shop. You can hire tour guides as well to take a scenic hike with you around the park. The park is divided into two districts so there is plenty of park for you to see, especially if you’re an outdoors enthusiast.


Remember that when you’re in the Saguaro National Park, the cacti are considered a protected species. It’s okay to take pictures of them, but avoid touching them or doing anything that might damage them. Besides, it’s always best to simply look at a cactus. Who wants to risk getting a porcupine-like sticker as a “prize” for curiosity?

What are you waiting for? Arizona isn’t playing a game of hide-and-seek. It’s right in front of you and ready to show you some unbelievable sights. Don’t worry about your house — Titan Alarm has you covered. Now get out there and play!

Beat The Heat

When you think “Smart Thermostat” do you think of saving money on your energy bill? Or do you think of a more comfortable house?

If you’re one of the people who think of both, well then congrats! You aren’t alone in your thinking! In fact, according to a recent Home Owners Survey, 93 percent of homeowners all think the way you do, and want both money savings and a more comfortable house!

So, why do most smart thermostats fail to deliver?

Most thermostats still monitor and control a house’s comfort and climate the old way, based on the temperature only in the room that the thermostat is installed in.

That technique works great if you want to have a comfortable living room or hall way, but not that well if your bedroom is upstairs where heat rises to.




Luckily, with Titan Alarm, there is a thermostat that gives you the options of having comfort around your whole house 24/7. A nice and even balance of a great temperature that is customised to each area of your house!

The Alarm.com Smart Thermostat is one of the most cutting edge thermostats on the market. With it’s smarter build and technology put into it, the thermostat has access to monitor every room in your house that has remote temperature sensors!

To utilize this feature, simply install remote sensors in every room you want to be able to monitor and control, assign it in the application to your thermostat and enjoy the precision comfort that has been assigned and targeted to that room. You can now easily create schedules for the temperatures in the rooms throughout the day and it’s all thanks to your smart home with temperature sensors.

Saving Money with Energy Management


In Arizona, we all know that July and August can be some of the hottest times of year in this hot hot desert state. Which means expensive energy bills to keep your house cool and in a comfortable environment to live in.

Inside houses, the top floors of the house get extremely hot, which is caused by heat rising. When this happens it creates hot zones, which aren’t necessarily where your thermostat is positioned.

This then will make it harder to keep your house comfortable and cool throughout the day and in the summer heat.

Unfortunately most homeowners simply put their air conditioning units on full blast until the whole house feels cool, but that actually racks up the energy bills quite a bit and is extremely inefficient.

Titan Alarm powered by alarm.com delivers a new way to keep your house at a comfortable and cool temperature, and we can help provide precision comfortability to your whole house.



1: Place Sensors in Main Rooms.

Temperature sensors that sync with your Titan Alarm system can and should be placed on the wall of high traffic and main use rooms in your house, that way it will give accurate readings sent back to your panel and thermostat to control the comfortability of the house.

For example: if you want your kitchen cooled down to 69 degrees, you can set the thermostat to target the kitchen and cool down your house until the sensor you have installed in the kitchen reads that the temperature is 69 degrees.

It’s worth the investment to have a temperature sensor in each other rooms in your house, that way you can have accurate readings of the temperature of the house as a whole.

Pro Tip: If you have young children and you make sure to put one in their bedroom or nursery, put it out of their reach.




2: Create a Schedule

With the temperature sensors, you can now target individual rooms and their climate all from your smartphone and the Alarm.com app! You can now manually control targeted rooms but the easiest way to do it is all with a schedule!

Based off of your family’s routine, you can make a schedule that will target all of the different rooms in your house as your family uses them and changes their routine around the house as the day goes on.

A great example of how scheduling works can be something as perfect as follows: you can set your house’s schedule to change the climate of the house at around 9am when you take the kids to school and you head to work, and then around 5pm when you’re heading home you can have the house change climate again to fit what you want to come home to.

Pro Tip: Schedule your house to change when you’re going to be gone for most of the day.

 3: Balance Your Smart House  


With precision comfort it can help save money on your energy bill by delivering just the right amount of energy needed to keep your house at a comfortable temperature rather than blasting the air conditioning all summer long.

Some of the amazing features and add ons you can get for your Titan Alarm Smart Home Thermostat are as follows:

Auto-Setback: This feature monitors your doors and windows to make sure none of them are accidentally left open and you accidentally start heating or cooling the outside world. If anything is left open, your thermostat will alert you and it will automatically set your houses temperatures back as to minimize energy waste until the door or window left open is closed.

Geo-Services: Using your smartphone’s location, your thermostat and smart home panel will use your phone’s location to control the climate and comfortability of your house. By using your phone’s location your house will go into “savings” mode once you leave a certain radius. To learn more about Geo-Services CLICK HERE.

Extreme Temps: This feature gives you the possibility and options of setting your thermostat to change temperatures when the outside temperature gets too hot, so that your house won’t fry while you’re away on a hot Phoenix day.

Prevent False Alarms On New Years Eve.


Prevent False Alarms On New Years Eve.


False alarms are annoying no matter when, where and how they happen, unfortunately New Year’s Eve has one of the highest volumes of false alarms. Normally during New Year’s Eve there is a rather large amount of alcohol and very small amounts of attention to detail, both of these will affect how your Titan Alarm Home Security System is utilized.

The issue that is ran into the most, is when people are having parties and they don’t realize someone was messing around with the control panel and the control panel is accidentally triggered and can cause a false alarm, which then throws a huge damper on the holiday festivities that everyone was enjoying.

Another scenario is when a customer returns home after a night of celebrating the New Year and they forget that they had armed their system when they left the house, or in some cases they forget they even have a system, and it can then trigger a false alarm, again ruining their night out celebrating.


Tips To Keep New Year’s Fun:

Here at Titan Alarm, we’re all about having a good time, so this New Year’s Eve, follow some of these tips to really make your night enjoyable, and to keep the hiccups out of your plans!

  • Keep The Party Going – If you’re decorating for your New Year’s Eve Party, make sure to keep the decorations away from key and crucial parts of your security system. Balloons, streamers and other decorations that are hung in the air, can trigger motion detectors and if you armed your system and have a balloon float in front of a motion detector, that will trigger a false alarm. The last thing you need on the last night of the year, is having the police show up and have to deal with a false alarm.
  • Home James – If you have a designated driver who’s sole responsibility for the night is to get you home and safely in bed, make sure you have filled them in on all the information they need to get you inside your house safely and securely. Set up a new user if needed, and give them a password and code to arm and disarm the house so that when they’re trying to get you home they don’t set off a false alarm.
  • Get Home Safe – If you’re going out for New Year’s this year, make sure to have a safe ride home, if you don’t have any friends that want to be a designated driver, try using Über to get you home! We want all of our customers to get home safely and be with us next year!


How To Celebrate The New Year Safely.


Believe it or not, every single minute, there is a person injured in an accident involving drunk driving. According to MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) Drunk Driving is an issue all year round, but during the holidays, the number of people involved and the risk of being involved in an accident caused by drunk driving is greatly increased. If it is possible for you and your friends on New Year’s Eve, avoid driving. Even if you haven’t been drinking, there is no way to control the actions of other drivers.


New Year’s Resolution.

Every year people make New Year’s Resolutions, and a lot of the time, those resolutions aren’t even carried out past 24 hours! Here are some of our top 3 resolutions to help you improve your life in 2016!

  • Lose Weight – With all the amazing food that has been consumed over the holidays, I’m sure we all could lose a few extra pounds and get that beach body ready by the time summer rolls around!
  • Save More, Spend Less – After the holidays our pockets and wallets are always hurting, between buying presents for our family and friends and spending money eating out and going to holiday parties, we all could use a few more commas in our bank accounts. Open up a savings account and see how much you can save this year!
  • Stay Safe – With the world in the crazy state it is in, everyone could use more security at home. With Titan Alarm we offer custom solutions for you and your home and even your business!

Titan Alarm is ready to help you out with that last resolution! Let’s at least follow through on one resolution this next year! If you’re interested in a Titan Alarm Home Automation or Titan Alarm Home Security System contact us! Give us a call: 602-680-4567 or TEXT US: 623-523-4849

Snowbird Security

In Phoenix, we all know that this city is a hub for snowbirds! So this one is for the ones who are lucky enough to escape the heat during summer and enjoy our perfect winters.

Many of you leave your homes unattended during the summer months, if this is you, make sure to follow the tips we have below.

1. Appearances Are Deceiving.

Burglars and Intruders have a great eye for homes that are vacant for the summer, there’s a lot of signs for them to tell by.

Here are three that are easy to prevent:

  1. Unattended Landscaping – This one is pretty easy to prevent, hire a landscaper or neighbor to help take care of your landscaping while you’re away for the summer.
  2. No activity in the house – With a Smart Home Automation System from Titan Alarm, you can turn lights on and off with preprogrammed times to make it appear that the house is lived in.
  3. Mail, newspapers and notes piling up. – Ask your neighbors to pick up your mail, or put a hold on your mail at the post office, or even better, get a P.O. Box so that the mail is stored for you.


One of the easiest steps to make a burglar think twice is to have a Titan Alarm sign in your front yard. Make sure yours is clean and visible to the public.



2. Make Your House A Fortress.

This tip is to keep burglars and intruders out of your house. Keep your home a fortress to unwanted visitors, make it harder if not impossible for them to get into your house.

Titan Alarm offers motion detectors, video event verification and security cameras, if utilized correctly these can keep burglars out of your house or have the police instantly alerted if someone is trying to break into your home.

Make sure before you leave for the summer that all your doors are locked. Install a security door too, the more steps they have to take to try to break in the better. Before you take off to your other home, do a walk through of the house and make sure all doors, windows and any possible points of entry are locked and secure.



3. The Toughest Is Titan.

The last tip, is to get a home security system from Titan Alarm with a Video Surveillance System and Video Event Verification. Installing this will give you the opportunity to check in on your house remotely from your smartphone or computer. If a burglar does try to break in, the Home Security System will quickly contact you and the police to make sure that the police arrive as quickly as possible.

Let Titan Alarm handle your  home while you’re away for summer. You won’t be in better hands.

Winter Is Upon Us

Be Ready For Winter.

With Winter upon us, make sure that your house is ready for winter, whether you get snow where you live or you are one of the lucky few who have a home that’s in a snowless climate, these tips are great for you to do anyway before it gets too cold out.

1. Clean Those Gutters 

As snow melts, the water needs a clear path from the roof away from the home. Otherwise, you run the risk of flooding. Even if you don’t expect snow this winter, cleaning out your gutters can help prevent flooding with rain as well. Regularly clean out excessive build up of fallen leaves, pines and debris to prevent overflow later.



2. Trim Shrubs and Trees

Check the outside of your home to see if any tree branches have grown or are falling towards your home. Snow and ice and wind can weigh, sway and shake these branches to the point where they can break off and cause a lot of damage to your house or vehicles. Take action ahead of time and trim branches before they get too big or too bent.

3. Plant a Windbreak to Conserve Energy

By planting shrubs, or small trees, you can help break the cold winds from hitting your house, which has proven to help with heating bills by helping keep out some of the cold from getting into your house. By planting a windbreak you can save up to 30% on your heating bill!



4. Smart Home Thermostat

A Smart Home Thermometer from Titan Alarm can help you put your house on a schedule, that way your house isn’t heating up while you’re away, wasting electricity, you can also set up a geo fence for your house to help your house be just the right temperature for you when you get home. To learn more about geo-fencing check out this blog we did. Click Here.



5. Keep An Eye On That Space Heater.

During the winter months, the fire departments see a massive increase in fires started with heating equipment. A recent study showed that at least half of all home fires between December and February are caused by space heaters and heating equipment.

To help prevent these kind of fires, furnaces, chimneys, space heaters and radiators need to be cleaned regularly and be sure to keep those blankets and wrapping paper away from them as well!

Thanksgiving Travel

Holidays are a time to relax and enjoy the company of family and friends, so Titan Alarm is here to give you some easy tips to keep you worry and stress free about your home during the holidays!

Keep your yard clean: If you’re out cleaning leaves from the gutters, or replacing shingles before the cold winter snow sets in, make sure you don’t leave any ladders out if you’re not using them.

Dumb as a Rock: Don’t leave any keys hidden that someone could find, burglars know all the good spots.

Silence is Golden: While you’re away make sure your voice mail is on the lowest volume and that your land lines are on mute so that no one can hear the phones ringing over and over again when you’re not home.

You’ve Got Mail: Have all mail held at the post office or have a neighbor get the mail for you while you’re gone.

Lockdown: Lock and Secure all windows, make sure you don’t forget the ones upstairs as well.

Home Alone: Use timers to operate lights to make it look like there are people home.

Last but not least, one of the best ways you can protect your house is to have a Titan Alarm system installed in your home, our systems include 24 hour monitoring to keep your home safe and sound.
