When you’re looking for a reputable security integrator to discuss your security needs, there are vital questions you need to ask them. You want the security professional you choose to be trustworthy and knowledgeable. So, here are some important questions to ask.
Are There Any Parts of Your Business That You Outsource?
What areas of the security installation process does the integrator control such as design, programming, project management, and more. If a security integrator is only involved as a connection between these parts of the process, then the overall quality of the project can suffer.
Is the Business Fully Licensed by Local and State Governments?
State and local licensing plays a critical role when it comes to professional security. A licensed security integrator meets local codes and requirements whereas businesses that aren’t fully licensed can jeopardize the whole security system. If the system doesn’t comply with these important regulations you can incur heavy fines and worse yet, the whole thing may be null and void.
How Long Has the Company Operated?
When you’re entrusting your employee’s lives and business to a security company, you want to know that they’re experienced. In the security industry, time equals experience. Only an experience and established security company should install complicated systems.
How Long Does the Entire Process Take?
It’s important to know how long the process from design to installation takes. It could be a few weeks or simply a few hours, depending on the complexity of the security system.
What are Some of the Trusted Brands You Work With?
Most of us have an idea in mind of what security brands are trustworthy. Integrators who suggest brands based on their trust and expertise will likely also consider your wants and needs. An integrator that just suggests a brand based on the fact they’ve installed their products before is not the best choice.
What Critical Security Measures Does the Integrator Take to Ensure Your Safety Through the Process?
You may encounter many different contractors and company employees throughout the process of buying a system and having it installed. The safety of your employees should be of the utmost importance. Here are some of the measures they should be taking:
- Written guarantee on your purchase and installation
- Fully Bonded
- Security clearances and background checks on employees
- Errors and Omission and/or Liability Insurance
- Making sure that certified electricians wire your security system
These are just a few of the questions you should be asking potential security integrators. Investing in a security system to protect your business is a huge investment of your time, money, and trust. So, don’t rush the process and do your research.
