A security system is at the backbone of any life safety system. While they can be basic, technology advancements have lead to additional functionality and cost. What do you really need? When is it best to save your money? Assurance Security will walk you through these decisions. 

Wireless Security Solutions

Old school security alarms communicate to the central station via your landline telephone. This telephone line has historically been the weak point in most security systems. Phone lines are vulnerable to many types of failure including:

  • Intentional line cuts
  • Maintenance issues
  • Vandalism
  •  Floods
  • Blackouts

Don’t trust your business to an outdated Security alarm transmission system that is slow, can fail or be disarmed by a perpetrator when they are needed most. Many old systems communicate with the central station by phone line—which can be cut in a matter of seconds by a skilled thief and a pair of pliers. With no lines to cut, an updated system guarantees a secure and reliable alarm. New technology notifies fire and police faster than ever.

Your security system checks in with the central station regularly to ensure that the communication is working seamlessly. If it detects an issue, you will be notified immediately. 


Security Alarm Scams

It’s our goal to educate our potential customers, so they can make the very best decision possible about security equipment. Quality electronic equipment is not cheap. Be wary of systems that are low priced. Either the equipment is not high quality, or the company might be pulling a bait-and-switch. Many companies sell security equipment at a loss. How do they stay in business?? They use tricky sales tactics to rope in cost-minded business owners into expensive, long term contracts with hidden fees and clauses.

Be wary of proprietary equipment. Many security companies use proprietary equipment to trap their customer. Because proprietary equipment is only sold to a small number of companies in an area, replacement parts can only be purchased by the company that installed the system. Owners of a system are left with little recourse in the event that they are not receiving quality service. They have few (if any) options to shop around for the best price.
