In this article I will be outlining , and how to find the right service to meet your families needs. It is a difficult decision that any home-owner faces. Do I need this service? What company is the most reliable? Who will be the most affordable? What kind of alarm system do I want? These are the main topics I will be discussing.
Before you begin looking into the process of finding an alarm service, you probably need to think about why you want one. There are many reasons a person may choose to get an alarm system. Perhaps you have moved into an area that has a high crime rate. Maybe you have people in your life that are untrustworthy. Or perhaps you just want to have that extra piece of mind. These are all valid reasons to set up an alarm system.
The next thing a person should look into when deciding what company to use when choosing an alarm system is reliability. You should find out how long the company has been in business. Another piece of information to have is what the reviews look like. Some companies have a warranty, some don’t. It is also important to find out if they are members of the Washington Burglar and Fire Alarm Association. Keep in mind the company must also be properly licensed in Seattle. These are all important questions to keep in mind. For Example, Froula Alarm Systems has been open for thirty-nine years, and has all ordinances necessary to legally do business in Seattle. They also offer a one year warranty to ensure satisfaction. ADT is very well-known nationally, and that also gives people a sense of confidence when it comes to choosing an alarm system. However, ADT is also well-known for having a pushy sales department and that is rather off-putting to a perspective client according to some reviews. VIP75o is a smaller company and has only been open for thirteen years, but has a warranty. They also offer free installation if you move somewhere else in the Seattle area after you have already been equipped with their alarm system.
Next you have to decide what kind of alarm system you want installed into your home. There are two basic types of alarm systems. The first is hardwired into your home. This is easier to find, as it is the most commonly offered type of alarm system. It is obviously a bit more work to install however. The other type is a wireless system. This would likely be your best option if you rent your home. However, a wireless system is usually a bit costlier per month, and less companies offer this option, although it is becoming more common. Guardian Security is a good option for someone who is unsure because they offer both wireless and hardwire, as does ADT. However, VIP750 and Froula Alarm Systems only offer hardwired alarm systems.
Finally one must consider the price involved. This is difficult to do because it depends many things like the size of your home, the amount of entries in your home and the amount of windows. ADT offers a promotion for ninety-nine dollars. However if you read the fine print, the installation fee is over two hundred dollars. VIP750 offers installation in an average fifteen hundred square foot home with two entrances at about sixty-five dollars. Their monthly fee is only thirty-four dollars and ninety-five cents. However, as I mentioned earlier, VIP750 only offers a hardwired system. Guardian Security is unable to really quote because they offer so many brands of equipment, so it really would depend on what exactly you want.
In the end, the choice is up to you. As the home-owner, you face a lot of tough decisions. You ultimately have to decide what is most important to you when it comes to your security system, whether it be price, brand name or product. I wish you good luck when it comes to choosing your system.
