What should you look for when buying a security system?

Are you in the market for a new security system for your home or business? Nowadays, there are many companies out there that are vying for your attention and business. But do you really know what you should be looking out for when buying a security system? Here at Vivint, we’ve made it easier for you to begin your research on top of the line home security systems currently on the market.

Is the system wireless? In all reality, no system is completely wireless. Regardless of what a company claims, the “hub” of every system needs an electricity source. However, some systems require more wiring than others, so be sure to understand what each system requires of your home.

Do you need a phone line? Many security companies no longer require phone lines! They often require high-speed internet instead, to view cameras or remotely control your system.

Contracts? Whether you will pay month to month or you will have a yearly contract, it’s important to know the in’s and out’s of the contract before committing to one security company.

Hidden Fees? Always read the fine print! Within any contract, there may be hidden fees companies don’t want you to know about. Many alarm companies gradually raise your monitoring fees or require an additional annual fee.

Can you move and take it with you? All security companies are different, but a very important question to ask is whether you can take your system with you when you move. Some companies will allow you to move the equipment, but others may make it difficult to make that transition. Always ask about their moving policy.
