Your Alarm Installation Company

As a salesperson I can recommend and sell you the best of the best but without the proper support from the company that installs it can be no less than a nightmare for you. The installation needs to be one that you can trust. You deserve to have a security system that is installed properly and serviced properly over the many years of its life. You need to look for all of the following things in a security company:

  • Has a great online reputation
  • Has a number of years of experience with security installation
  • Has a good rating with the Better Business Bureau
  • Has a great website
  • Installs quality products

Has a great online reputation

The Internet is a valuable tool in checking out the potential company that you may select for the installation of your security system. You can use all of the following resources to check up on a company before you ever invite them into your home.

These are just a few but with these you can definitely eliminate some of the ones that you may have been considering.

Years in Security Installation

You cannot simply overlook companies that have been in business for a short period of time. Every company in business today started with no time in business. If you find a young company you can still consider them but they may need a little extra research. With newer companies you can get a quick idea form the Yelp comments. On the other hand a company that has been in business for years did not stay in business by doing a poor job.

Has a good rating with the Better Business Bureau

Many people do not know that it is very simple to have an A+ rating with the BBB. It is not a case of having no complaints. It is very much the case of responding to the complaints that are generated. When you see someone that has an A+ rating then that means that they have never had a complaint or that when they have they have responded to it instead of ignoring the problem. Every person and company can have an issue here and there and that is acceptable but it is not acceptable to completely ignore issue that come up. That is a definite argument for using the smaller “Mom & Pop” shops. They usually respond to your needs faster.

Other Online Resources

There is a wide variety of online reporting places for you to see what people are saying about the alarm company that you are going to potentially select. Some of them are Angie’s List, Yelp and Consumer Affairs. Even though I did not list this first the very first thing to do is to check that the company has an active license to install a security system. In California you can check with Bureau of Security and Investigative Services.

So many of the security websites that you will look at only quote prices and have an online form to request more information. 99% of the websites have no valuable information about how to protect your home and family and how a security system works.

Has a Great Website

Most people are very busy and they have come to depend on a website to do research and learn more about what they may want to purchase. If your potential security company only has a website that allows you to request a bid then you can tell that they are only about sales. You should be able to expect an informative website to learn about the product and the company that you may select. Security Systems are installed to protect your home, your possessions and your family. It is not something to be taken lightly. The low voltage industry is a highly technical industry; don’t you think that a company’s website should reflect that?
