As a business owner, one of the most important decisions you can make is which physical security system provider is right for you. Finding the right one, however, is not as easy or as straightforward as it may seem. There are many security system companies out there, but not all of them are equal, have the same experience or technological offerings. So how do you find the right one? Here is a list of questions you can ask to get started.
Is the Company Licensed to Work in Your State?
When considering a company to handle your alarm system needs, consider their credentials, such as being licensed to work in your state before you sign the dotted line.
What Are the Company’s Additional Credentials?
Another important qualification is if the company is a member of any recognized industry associations? A reputable company will be a member of one or more state, local, or national organizations.
How Long Has the Company Been in Operation
As in any industry, time equals experience. Choose a company with enough time in the industry to equal the kind of experience you’d want in relation to your needs.
What Technologies to the Company Offer?
Not all security companies offer the same technologies in brand or scope. Find out what kinds of technologies each one offers, as well as the manufacturers of those technologies.
What Are the Capabilities and Limitations of System Offerings?
Security technology is exciting, but it is easy to idealize what a system can do. Make sure that your potential company knows your requirements and find out if the systems they offer can meet those requirements.
Will the Company That Installs the System be the One That Services the System?
It is important not to assume that a company that sells the system is the same that will install or service the system. Ask the company you are considering if they will be the ones servicing the system.
What Kind of Service Support Do They Offer
Most alarm system users will have an occasional question or need. When choosing a provider, find out what kind of service support they offer and if they are responsive to client needs.
