Your alarm is no more reliable than the people installing and maintaining it. There is nothing to stop a burglar from setting up a security company and using their knowledge of your home and security system to break into your property. This is why trust between the client and ourselves is of paramount importance.
Do you trust your alarm/CCTV company? How can you trust people you have never met to come into your home? One of the best indicators is to see if other people trust them. Much of our business comes from referrals from family and friends, however this is not always the case.
When dealing with an unknown quantity, the best thing to look for is accreditation. GuardHome is accredited by the National Security Inspectorate. We are inspected by the NSI every year. Their role is too ensure that people who purchase security systems from NSI registered companies are buying security that is of the highest standard.
We would always recommend going with an accredited company, especially considering the importance of your security on the grounds of safety alone. After all, why take the risk with such a delicate matter?
