If you have a bad experience at a restaurant, you probably won’t go back. If a mechanic overcharges you, you’ll never see them again.
But if your security installer does bad work, it will take a lot of extra time, money, and stress to fix it. And if your system isn’t reliable, you may not know it until the middle of an emergency.
One way you can avoid all those hassles is by working with a professional company you can trust. Of course, it’s not always easy to tell who that is.
In this blog, we’ll show you how you can identify the right home security company. Just keep reading for some smart tips on finding the right partner for you.
Every company has to start somewhere. It’s not always fair to say newer companies are less reliable. But if you’re looking for a company you can trust, a long history is a good place to start.
Atlantic Security has roots that date back 50 years! Starting in 1968 with a Westec Security dealership, we’ve been serving the North Florida and Southern Georgia community ever since. In fact, we offered one of the very first “smart” security systems way back in 1989 — the Westec 5000.
When you work with a company that has a longstanding history within the community, you know they’re less likely to go under unexpectedly. They’ll remain around to help service your system for years to come.
If you’ve ever had to hire someone to work at your company, you likely asked for a resume and portfolio. So, why would you approach your home security projects any differently?
Look for companies that have a portfolio of past work. After all, if they’re not proud of their efforts, it’s a good sign they’re not right for you.
For instance, you can check out some of our favorite projects right here. It’ll help you get an idea of the variety of systems we can install, the way it looks after installation, and what it can do for your various spaces.
If you don’t want to take our word for it, we also recommend that you check out some of our past customer reviews. Click here to find out what homeowners throughout the First Coast have to say about our security services.
Whether they’ve been around forever or they’re brand new; whether they have a portfolio filled with projects or just a few, your installer needs to be a resource for you. They should help educate and inform you about your system before and after the project is done.
During the discovery process, your installer will try to figure out what you want out of your system. Don’t be afraid to ask them questions about the products they recommend. A quality installer will happily answer any questions you have and provide plenty of ways you can learn more about your system.
Remember, your project isn’t done until you’re fully educated on how to use it.
