So you’ve found a home security system that works for you and your home. What’s next? Whether you’ve opted for a monitored home security or something more DIY, here’s how to find a good security system installer near you.
- Research. Certain alarm systems and monitoring services, like Vivint, offer professional installation as part of your home security package. If you opt for a different brand, the internet is your best weapon: websites like Thumbtack and TaskRabbit collect reviews and references on handymen and installers for you to help you decide.
- Ask around. If one of your friends just got a cool new alarm system, ask them who installed it. It might be old fashioned, but personal recommendations are still one of the best ways to find pros.
- Read reviews and referrals. References will help you choose a reliable professional to install your new security system.
- Get a quote. If you can get a consultation, that’s even better. Some security systems need to be customized to fit your lifestyle, and getting a quote will give you a good idea of what to expect.
