What Differentiates Security Companies in Chicago?

Posted on January 26th, 2017 by Alert Protective

On the surface it may seem like all security companies in Chicago are the same. Let us tell you, this is NOT the case. If you’re considering getting a home security system, make sure you look into your provider before making your purchase. There are definite differentiating factors between different security companies, and you’ll want to look for the following when making your choice!

Proof of Licensure

The company you choose to buy your security system from should have a trained and certified staff of licensed professionals. You’ll want to make sure that your alarm company has the appropriate licensure or certification according to your state’s laws.

Solid Reputation

There are a number of places you can go to determine a company’s reputation. Look into consumer protection agencies like the Better Business Bureau for reports on the company’s reputation. You can also look online for reviews on places like Angie’s List, Yelp, Facebook, and Google. Ask your family and friends if they have had experiences with the security companies you’re looking into and see what they have to say as well.

Actually Look At Your Contract

All-too-often, people blindly sign contracts without reading them. You’ll thank yourself later on for going through your contract with a fine-tooth comb. Sit down and read what you’re signing before you sign it. Shady security companies will try to include extra fees in the fine print. Catch them before you get stuck up the creek without a paddle.
