How do you select a professional security company?
There are plenty of choices of what security company you can choose, but not all are created equal. When making this decision for your home or business, make sure you select the best company that fits with your lifestyle and security needs. Here are some helpful tips to consider when you’re selecting a professional security company:
Local VS. National
With a national security company, you may run into long wait times over the phone and when you reach a representative, they will be located in another state or country, which can be frustrating. Amherst Alarm is located right in Western New York, so you will always be speaking with someone familiar with the area. You can also call us 24 hours a day and speak to an actual person.
You should always look for a monitoring center that is 5 Diamond Certified and UL Listed. This means that they have gone through rigorous screening and are committed to providing high-quality security to their customers. Something else to take into account is their Better Business Bureau rating. Amherst Alarm has an A+ rating and was selected to provide the security system for the Better Business Bureau.
Low-cost plans may seem appealing at first but you may fall victim to hidden fees and upcharges after the introductory period of signing on with a company. There are no hidden fees or increased monitoring costs at Amherst Alarm. What you see is what you pay!
