Installs Quality Products

Last but certainly not least a security company needs to install quality security systems. Most of the security companies that I have worked for or worked with install quality products. This does not mean that they are all the same. The basic function of any security system is to detect an unwanted intrusion into your protected space. This is accomplished with a number of detection devices. The most popular security devices are door/window contacts, motion detectors and glass break detection. There are a wide variety of auxiliary detection devices such as smoke detectors, CO detectors, flood sensors, humidity sensors, temperature sensing devices and even cameras. And now your security system can provide home automation. From anywhere in the world you can arm and disarm your system, receive alerts from each of your sensors, lock and unlock your doors and even control your thermostat.

All security systems will detect intrusions but only a few will provide intrusion and home automation. Even if you do not think that you will need home automation you should select a panel that can provide that service if you elect to add it in the future. The alternative is the purchase of a new panel just to upgrade.

There is only one piece of the puzzle that I did not mention and that is price. Although this is always a consideration the price should be the last item on your list. A great price provided by a bad security company is no deal at all. Once you have selected three companies that you will consider working within then you can request an onsite visit so that a consultant can evaluate what your needs are. There are a lot of options and it is the responsibility of the consultant to provide you the education that you need to make a good choice. Make sure you ask enough questions to be satisfied that you are making a good selection.
