Secu­ri­ty for your Home or Busi­ness has nev­er been more impor­tant. Tech­no­log­i­cal advance­ments in secu­ri­ty can make the deci­sion on choos­ing the appro­pri­ate Secu­ri­ty Con­trac­tor more dif­fi­cult. It’s nev­er been more impor­tant to choose a secu­ri­ty com­pa­ny care­ful­ly. Here are our top 5 tips on what you should look for on how to choose the best Secu­ri­ty Provider.

1) Diver­si­fi­ca­tion and Inte­gra­tion: A secu­ri­ty com­pa­ny that only offers you with one option to pro­tect your assets is leav­ing you vul­ner­a­ble. In today’s world, you need a com­pa­ny that can pro­vide you with expert advice on a vari­ety of secu­ri­ty mea­sures. You may not decide to imple­ment every­thing offered, but you should know what your options are, so you are com­fort­able with your final deci­sion. Look for a com­pa­ny that offers a vari­ety of prod­ucts and ser­vices from brand names you trust. A REAL TRUSTED secu­ri­ty provider won’t just try to sell you a basic alarm sys­tem. They will pro­vide you with the lat­est in Secu­ri­ty Sys­tems AND options on Phys­i­cal Secu­ri­ty includ­ing; locks, access con­trol, secu­ri­ty win­dow film and bars, video sur­veil­lance and door rein­force­ment hard­ware. You also need to know how it all works togeth­er to keep you safe.

2) Com­pa­ny his­to­ry: When you are choos­ing a secu­ri­ty provider it’s gen­er­al­ly not a short-term or 1‑time trans­ac­tion. In many instances, you will be sign­ing a ser­vice agree­ment for mul­ti­ple years. Con­se­quent­ly, you should be sure the com­pa­ny has sol­id cre­den­tials. Read some reviews and tes­ti­mo­ni­als. Find out how long the com­pa­ny has been in busi­ness, do they have pro­fes­sion­al affil­i­a­tions and accred­i­ta­tions?

3) Loca­tion: Does the com­pa­ny have a phys­i­cal address? A com­pa­ny work­ing from a post office box may be chal­leng­ing to track down when prob­lems arise, or you need ser­vice after the sale. A com­pa­ny with­out an address also means there is no show­room where you can see the prod­uct offer­ings BEFORE you make a pur­chase.

4) Tech­ni­cians and Sales­peo­ple: The best secu­ri­ty com­pa­nies employ good peo­ple. Don’t be afraid to ask your Sales Rep­re­sen­ta­tive how long he/she has been with the com­pa­ny and in the indus­try. Are the Sales Peo­ple will­ing to come to your site for a con­sul­ta­tion? Ask how expe­ri­enced the tech­ni­cians are, and if they are vet­er­ans of the secu­ri­ty indus­try. Secu­ri­ty vet­er­ans have years of expe­ri­ence and train­ing to share with you, and will also be able to help you mod­ern­ize your exist­ing sys­tems. Expe­ri­ence counts.

5) Val­ue ver­sus Price: Every busi­ness per­son and home own­er has a lim­it­ed bud­get and wants to get the most ser­vice for the least mon­ey. But there is a big dif­fer­ence between val­ue and cheap. Be very cau­tious of a sales rep­re­sen­ta­tive or com­pa­ny that is offer­ing a much low­er cost than com­peti­tors. In most cas­es, the adage that “you get what you pay for” remains true. Good val­ue is the goal, look for qual­i­ty prod­ucts and ser­vices that over the long-term (which is indica­tive of secu­ri­ty) will pro­vide you with sol­id pro­tec­tion and reli­able ser­vice.
