How To Choose The Right Home Security Company

I'm going to make a guess that you're here because you're thinking of getting your first home alarm system. The first thing you will need to do is to decide which home security company you want to work with. You’re going to have to ask yourself “what security system is right for me? What kind of services do I want? Do I want to speak to the same person or get transferred to agents I will never see?”

There are many security companies in Montreal, so how do you decide which one to go with? Large corporate companies will put you on hold for twenty minutes to just be transferred to a different department. You also will not be talking to the same person each time you have an issue, so where is the service in that?

Sentinel Alarm is a reputable localized company where you get the personal touch that many of our clients enjoy. The security and customer service of our clients is our top priority. You will be on a first name basis with your security consultant, get a free home security evaluation and a personalized security system tailored to your needs. 

Now we know what everyone is thinking...what about price? Many security companies offer base packages to everyone, but may not ensure you’re properly protected. They lure you in with small upfront costs but charge you high monthly fees ($50+) which are extremely expensive compared to other local security companies.

What they don’t tell you is that after six months, companies will sell their contracts to other companies and you won't know that you're dealing with a completely different company. The installations of these systems are also outsourced to sub-contractors, who's only motivation is to install a system as quick as possible to make the most money. Which means in the event of an emergency you won't know who's protecting you and what to do after an incident.

At Sentinel, installations are never outsourced, you get the same equipment, and mobile services from as little as $29.95/month with a customer service experience that no other company can match. Take advantage of our summer special to make sure your home is protected when you're on vacation with $50 off all home security packages.
