Select the Best in Home Security

By David Johnson

Those who are in the market for a home security system will likely find themselves comparing big name companies such as ADT and Brinks to smaller local companies. You can find decent reputable companies somewhere in the middle priced range if you live in a decent area.

The company size will play a determining role in their prices as well as their reliability. The company you should consider should be an authorized installer who is able to offer multiple services including assessing your personal security needs, professional installation, and top of the line equipment that provides central monitoring.

You will be relieved to know that the larger well known companies like Brinks and ADT require extensive background checks on every single employee and know who is where at all times in the event of a loss. All of the bigger companies also require employees to be UL, Underwriters Laboratory certified.

You will likely get the best service if you stick with a reputable well known company that has been in business for a long time. The larger companies such as ADT and Brinks offer brand new technology and spend a substantial amount of time updating their equipment.

They are also updating their monitoring stations to maintain the best technology available to closely monitor their customer's homes and safety. When it comes to your family's safety you want to make sure you trust the right reliable source with backup power and contact lines.

The first time you contact a home security company for a quote they should send someone to your home at a convenient time for you so that they are able to perform an in home assessment. This will make it easy for them to determine your type of security threats you face in your home. They will then advise you in the best ways to correct problem areas and what are the best equipment and services to protect you.

You should plan on getting several different estimates from many types of companies including local and big name companies. You may be surprised at what you can get for your money depending on what area you reside in and what types of protection and equipment you need. Some companies may want to talk you into signing up for a "can't miss" offer but you should always spend the time getting in home estimates because they are the most accurate.

When you feel like you are ready to make your decision be sure it is based on the protection it offers and not the solely on the price. Many home security companies require you to sign a long contract that is commonly a year or two of services. Trying to cancel once you have been signed up is expensive and is usually not worth canceling.

When you are determining which company is better than the other then compare them by a few key areas. See how long each company has been in business. Make sure they have the required licenses and certifications to be providing the services they are offering. Also make sure that they have the necessary insurance against damages during the installation process.
