Choosing a home security system provider can be very confusing when the choices are overwhelming. In todays day and age whether you are looking for a plumber , an electrician or simply shopping for a toy for your child, the one place everyone goes to find what they need is Google. And that is no different when it comes to finding a home security provider. There was a time when everyone would either ask a friend for a referral or look in the yellow pages for any kind of service they needed, but not today. Today the world wide web is overwhelmingly the number one choice for finding what you are looking for.
The only problem that arises out of this type of marketing however is that you really don’t know who you are dealing with. If you are searching for an automotive part for your automobile and find a company that has it at the price you want it how do you know that the company you found is a legitimate company. On the internet anyone can put up a picture of an enormous building with company trucks and employees and it could all be made up. Anyone can find images of these things and portray themselves as being a large organization when in fact they might just be working literally out of the back of their car. Even when you are searching for a home security provider it is very hard to know who is a legitimate licensed contractor and who is just a fly by night.
Recently it has been noticed in the security systems industry that people have been posing as ADT Corporate who is owned by parent company Tyco and deceiving potential customers by pretending to be something they are not. Listings in Google places have been appearing with a persons private phone number as they illegally use the ADT.com web address as if they were ADT themselves. These illegal practices cause distrust in potential customers and creates an environment whereby people are skeptical about who they are really doing business with.
At Security Concepts we follow all the rules set forth in our ADT Authorized Dealer Agreement so as to not do anything to cause confusion for potential clients. Every organization who becomes an actual ADT Authorized dealer goes to a one week training period where they are explained in detail on how they may advertise their business and still use the ADT name.
So if you are looking for a legitimate security system provider here are some things you need to know about the company you are interested in doing business with. First of all you need to call ADT personally or just look up ADT.com and request information regarding the company you are considering using. ADT will be able to tell you if the company you are considering is actively authorized by ADT to act as an agent for ADT in reference to selling and installing security services. You may also want to contact the Department of Business and Professional regulations and verify that the company which is representing themselves as authorized ADT agents are in fact licensed with the state of Florida to conduct business as an Alarm system contractor. Lastly it would be wise to make sure the company proposing to do work for you shows you an active liability and workers comp insurance policy.
Once you have checked these things then you can negotiate pricing and equipment with that company because now you know that they are a legitimate company.
