Specifying security systems is a responsibility that should be taken very seriously indeed. However, like any service industry, electronic security has its fair share of cowboys and incompetents. There are also those who should know better but specify less effective systems where their interest in security lies solely in their motivation for profit and perhaps their own career advancement. So if you're looking for security, tread very carefully, check the facts and read the small print before you sign anything. A low outlay might seem attractive but it might be followed with high on-going costs.
After sales service is seen as the 'cash cow' by many installation companies. The need for systems to be covered by a maintenance contract for compliance with standards and insurers insistance can leave the custmer vulnerable. For example, you think you might have a problem with your system or you are unsure how to retrieve information or change a code. You ring the company to ask for help and you can only speak to a call centre. Yes, they can send an engineer but otherwise they can't help you. How frustrating, all you want is the answer to a simple question, just a little guidance on using the system. Well your paying enough in maintenance so you agree they should send an engineer. When he arrives he tells you you are pushing the wrong button. He's gone in a few minutes and you receive a (rather large) bill because it is 'user error'. Costly mistake for you, very profitable for the company.
A BETTER WAY
We are different because we do not see a phone call seeking help as a reason to book a call. We always enquire what the problem is to see if it can be resolved without the cost of an engineer calling. We will even arrange for an engineer to phone you back if there isn't one available to speak to you at the time.
