Best Security Company - How Do You Choose?

Tips to Select the Right Security Company for Your Family's Protection


Due to the rise of crime in the United States over the last couple of decades, you’ll see multiple companies offering home security systems in every city of the country. Choosing a company to protect your family and home can be intimidating. Here are a few tips to make the choice a little easier.

Be prepared with the questions you want to ask the company before you call them. Here are some examples:

How many years has the company been in business? – The goal here is to find out if you’re dealing with a company that’s going to stick around throughout the length of your contract terms. Never do business with a new company. If they don’t succeed, they’ll end up selling your contract to a company that you never chose to be with and may not want to be with.

What types of pre-employment screenings are given to employees? – This is crucial. The people who come into your home from the beginning of the process to the end of the process are required by law to meet certain criteria in order to work in the security industry. You’ll want to make sure that a criminal background check and drug test are both part of the pre-employment screenings.

Where is your headquarters? – Believe it or not, there are some companies that can sell you a home security system and their “headquarters” is a spare bedroom in their house. When getting involved with a security company, you need to trust the fact that there is a professional facility fully capable of handling your security needs.

Who will monitor my alarm and where is that facility located? – Having a security company who uses a local monitoring facility is a huge benefit simply because that monitoring station knows your community!

Seek advice from others!

Talk to your neighbors. – Look around your neighborhood for the security company yard signs. Ask your neighbors about their recommendations and experiences.

Use consumer resources. – Look up the potential company with the Better Business Bureau. Look for reviews online with sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Yelp or Angie’s List.

Set up appointments!

Narrow down your list to the companies that seem the most trustworthy. – After you’ve got your list narrowed down to a maximum of 3, call each company and request a consultant come out to give you a quote. Trust your consultants but make sure to thoroughly review any contracts before signing.
