Professional installation vs. store-bought

There are two ways that you can get a security system for your business. You can either have it professionally installed or you can purchase your own equipment and do the work yourself.

Although self-installation appears to allow you to save a great deal of money, it may come with a number of issues that you won’t find if you choose to work with experts.

Whether you’re looking to have professional installation for intercoms, cameras or alarms, here are some of the advantages that you’ll definitely get.

After-installation service

One of the main benefits of having your security system professionally installed is that you can take advantage of  after-installation services. These include maintenance and servicing.

As a business-owner, you want your security system to be operating perfectly. If it breaks down, it leaves your business open to illegal activity such as vandalism and theft.

Regular maintenance and servicing is the best way to make sure that your security system runs at its best for as long as it can.

If you’ve self-installed your security system, you might not have the experience to make any repairs. And you’ll have to hire a repair service who’ll need to learn everything about your security system before they can start work. By having a professional installation, you’ll be able to contact your installer to make the repairs and they’ll already have all the information they need to resolve the issue with your security system.

Placement of equipment

Once you’ve purchased the equipment, you’ll need to figure out the best position to make your security system as effective as possible. However, if you don’t have that knowledge, it’s best to hire an installer to help you.

Part of the job of a security system installer is to work with a business to determine where the equipment needs to be placed. Some things they’ll take into consideration are what rooms to prioritise, the dimensions of each room and the field of view of cameras and sensors.

Product knowledge

There are many different brands that develop security equipment, with each brand developing a large number of products for you to choose from.

If you’re looking to install your own security system, the process of choosing the right products can become a rather daunting process. By hiring a professional installer, they can use their extensive knowledge and experience on security systems when determining what type and brand of equipment will suit your business best.
