Installing Home Security: Why Professionals Do It Better

August 18, 2014

Your home is your castle, and your family, royalty. Protecting loved ones and assets is top-of-mind to homeowners and renters alike. But how should you go about it? Those who are technologically savvy might be inclined to go to the Wal-Mart or Radio Shack, grab some equipment and hit the ground running. How hard could it be, after all?

Before you spend hard-earned money and, most importantly, precious family time and sweat equity, there are a few things you should consider when thinking of beefing up your home security. It could be that you would save a lot, in the long run, if you let the professionals at Bates help you out.

System Design: The First Step to Fool-Proof Security

  • Should all doors and windows be fitted with magnetic contacts?
  • Where should the motion sensors go for maximum coverage and no blind spots?
  • What equipment should you buy, and what should you not bother with?
  • Should you go wireless?
  • What about cameras?

These are all questions that some might have when considering putting security equipment in their home. We do not always have the answers, and researching the "best bang for your buck" is often time-consuming and potentially frustrating.

The Security Consultants at Bates Security are home security experts. They are professional and thorough, doing a walk-through of your home and property with you. They will answer any questions you may have, but more importantly, they will ask questions, so that the system that is installed in your home is tailor-made for your family's unique needs.

The consultation, system design and proposal are all free of charge.You give input on what goes into securing your home, while also getting the benefit of Bates' years of experience protecting homes all across Central Kentucky.

Hassel-Free Installation

Making time for home improvement projects can sometimes be hard, and doing the work yourself even harder. These days, our most precious commodity is our time. When away from work, time is usually better spent investing in our families rather than going up and down ladders, fussing over putting holes in freshly-painted walls, or wrestling with misbehaving electronic equipment.

The staff in the Installation Department at Bates Security is friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. They are background-checked and randomly drug-tested, insuring that your home and family are in good hands. From the initial contact by the Installation Coordinator to schedule your install, to the time the Bates Security truck pulls away from your driveway, you will feel cared-for and confident that your home and family are safe and secure.

Service Is Key

Even the best-quality electronic equipment does not always work like it should, out of the box. If it is store-bought and not working well, there is the hassle of returning it for something else, or worse yet, having to deal with the manufacturer to get a replacement. Even if the newly installed store-bought security system is in good working order and up and running, what is the benefit if it is not being monitored? You have just invested hundreds of dollars in what could be called a glorified noise-maker. Who calls the authorities when you are not home?

A Bates Security installation is covered with a no-hassle, 90-day labor/1-year parts guarantee. All systems installed by Bates are monitored by their UL-listed monitoring station, and serviced by their award-winning, local Customer Service Center. From design and install, to monitoring and service, Bates Security offers a top-tier customer experience. Contact them to be free of the time-consuming and daunting do-it-yourself task, and let the professionals secure what matters most.
