You’ve made the decision to install or upgrade your residential or commercial security system… now comes the hard part. How do you select the security services provider that best suits your needs? Powered Protection wants to help you make an informed decision – so we’ve prepared this free guide to walk you through the process.

Before You Begin

Here are a few things you should think about before you begin your selection process:

  • Evaluate the area you are installing the system for the level of crime common to that location. This will help determine your specific security needs.
  • What are your internal security needs? Do you have additional vulnerable areas like windows and side doors that pose a security risk?
  • What is the lighting like for the property? Is it well lit by street lamps or are there areas that are poorly lit that should be flagged for attention?

These points should all be part of a comprehensive security assessment review conducted by any security company you are considering. In addition, you should also consider the following when selecting the provider:

  1. Will the company show you a business license and proof of insurance?

The safety of your family or business is very important. You should narrow your search down to security services providers with an established track record. Ask to see the company’s business license and proof of insurance as all firms are legally required to have these documents.

  1. Does the company seem reputable with good reviews?

You can check with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the company has a history of complaints or infractions. You can also search online to see if there are reviews from previous clients as these comments can provide a true picture of the company and its level of service.

  1. Does the company do their own installations or hire sub-contractors?

One way some companies will cut corners is to hire sub-contractors to do the actual installation work. This should be a red flag as it means the work is being done by less experienced people that do not specialize in the installation of security equipment.

It also means that the company is looking for any way it can to save money, which should leave you wondering in what other areas they are compromising quality in order to save a few dollars.

  1. Is the company based and/or able to provide service in your location?

A local security provider offers a distinctive advantage if you ever experience an issue with your system or need general guidance and advice. It’s reassuring to know that your provider is nearby and can respond quickly, otherwise, you’re left dealing with issues on your own.

  1. Will the company provide a quick response time when you need them?

The main reason for installing a security system in your home or business is to provide security 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If there’s an issue with your system, you need it fixed, and fast. We all know technology isn’t perfect, but your company should be able to help immediately if an issue arises.

We know that each client has unique needs and no single solution can work for everyone, so we encourage you to contact us to arrange a complimentary security assessment. As part of this assessment, we will visit your location and review your requirements to recommend the right solution to give you peace of mind.
