4 Tips for Choosing the Best Home Security Company

security-company-checklistSo you’ve made the decision to buy a monitored home alarm system. Congratulations! You’ve made an outstanding choice that will really help you protect your home and family.

Now you just have to choose the right alarm company. There are dozens of choices out there, so we thought we’d offer some guidelines.

1) Tight Security Procedures for Sales Reps and Installers

The law requires that all security sales representatives and installers undergo criminal screenings and submit their fingerprints. Most companies stop there.

However, there have been incidents in which people pose as workers for different companies. What kind of check or balance does an alarm company have against impersonation?

In our case, our check and balance is right here on our website. You can enter the badge number of any professional into our system to verify that they do work for us. That way you know you are not letting someone into your home who does not belong there.

2) Standardized Equipment.

Some security companies buy out other security companies. When this happens they will often activate existing, old panels from other companies instead of installing new ones.

This can cause problems if one part of the system fails. The installer can’t just swap out a part, and suddenly the company is trying to charge you for brand new equipment.

Our equipment is all the same, and it’s all interchangeable. That means that it’s easy for us to get your system up and running again. We also know – so you also know – that our systems are going to interface well with our monitoring center.

3) Trustworthy, In-House Monitoring

Some companies outsource their monitoring centers. That means trouble. You don’t know what kind of training an outsourced monitoring center is receiving. You don’t know what kinds of disaster back up plans they have.

Our monitoring center has been up and running for 33 years, and has served 1,000,000 homes coast to coast. Which would you rather trust?

4) A solid gold reputation.

Of course, we all rely on reputation and reviews to choose the companies that we do business with. But since almost 20% of reviews found on popular review portals are faked you can’t always trust what you see.

That’s why JSB has gone out of its way to achieve 100% Better Business Bureau verified reviews. Angie’s List and Yelp are all fine and well, but we want you to know that you really can believe in us and trust us. That’s why we went the extra mile.

If you trust us, call us.
