Ok, let's get back to picking the right Alarm Company! Here are a few pointers.
Contact the Better Business Bureau regarding complaints that may have been filed against any of the companies. Click Here to check.
Ask if the company has all licenses and permits required for your area. Are their technicians licensed and/or certificated? Ask if they screen their employees or conduct background checks before hiring.
Does the company maintain adequate insurance coverage? Will you be given thorough training on the operation of the equipment? Everyone who will be using the system should be present during this training.
READ THE CONTRACT! Does it include everything that you were promised verbally? Does it specify what equipment you will own, and what equipment, if any, will remain the property of the security company? Make sure that you understand the terms and conditions of the monitoring agreement. What is the total cost over the life of the contract? What Central Station will be monitoring your account? What are the provisions regarding early termination of the agreement?
These are just a few things you should consider when picking your alarm company.
