PURCHASING YOUR MONITORED SECURITY SYSTEM:
If you are considering purchasing a security alarm system, there are a lot of details that will need to be considered. What is your budget? What features should you look for? What questions should you ask? Your NorthStar Security Consultant will help guide you through this process and make sure you find the security solution that is the best fit for your home or business.
What do you want in a system?
With the advanced technology of today, you will have many options for a security alarm system. While fire and burglar systems are the most common, you can extend your needs to carbon monoxide detection, propane/gas leak detection, water sensors, and even video surveillance systems. Discuss your needs with one of our experts and you will find they will be more than helpful in recommending components for your security system that will protect you and your family or business.
What are some of the features you want?
Your NorthStar consultant will be able to go over the features we offer as well as thoroughly assess your property and make recommendations. It is also a good idea to have a detailed list of some of the features you require. Some of these features may include a back up system in case the power goes out or the telephone lines go out, a direct line of communication between the monitoring company and your home, and an immunity system so that your pets will not set off motion detectors.
What else should I know before I put an alarm system in my home?
The most important thing you should understand is that a home security system can save lives in an emergency situation. When you set up your system, it will be monitored through our central monitoring station. You will want to check with your county to verify if your alarm needs to be registered. In an effort to cut down on false alarms, certain counties require you to register your monitored alarm system. For a listing of counties that currently have this requirement check out our Alarm Registration page under Residential Services.
