The awareness for securing our Miami homes from burglars has significantly intensified over the past few years. During the 80's most Miami residents felt that their communities were relatively safe and the major sector purchasing alarm systems were business owners. The Alarm Association of Florida stated during those times that more than 70 percent of Miami, Florida residents did not have a security system. Today it is a totally different picture. One of the first things new Miami homeowners purchase is a home security alarm system. It is now a fact that Miami has a much greater awareness of crime and the purchase of an alarm system is no longer an option. The tension that now exists is not whether to get an alarm system but rather from who to buy a security system for your house. So in light of that problem, the remainder of this article will shed some light on what to look for when choosing a Miami alarm company.

State of Florida Licensed and Insured Alarm CompanyMost Miami alarm system owners are not aware that alarm companies are required to be state licensed and insured. In over thirty years of selling and installing home alarm systems in Miami, Fl, very few times has anyone ever done any research to see if we were licensed to install systems. Most people just assume that anyone offering to provide security system services are qualified to do so. The truth of the matter is that most alarm companies or rather supposed alarm companies in Miami are not truly qualified as alarm contractors. The reason for this is that the person or company representing themselves are not truly qualified because they are not truly licensed nor qualified to perform the alarm installation. They may be qualified in the sense that they have a license number on their truck or on their contract but the question remains as to whose license it is? Most ADT Miami alarm companies utilize a certified electrician who is not even in the alarm industry to qualify them to install alarm systems. The problem with this is that the alarm company actually performing the work in your home has never truly passed a state exam to make sure they are qualified to install your system. If you are not sure about the alarm company you are considering in Miami then just do a search at My Florida.com to see if they are state certified.The following is a checklist of the things to ask.
Assure that the state license issued by the state actually belongs to the owner of the company installing the alarm system in your Miami home. Check the liability insurance policy of the alarm company performing the work to make sure that they have an active policy in place. Make sure that the person coming to install the alarm system is covered under a workers compensation policy in the event they get hurt on the job. Ask the company you are considering to use if their employees are back ground checked. This is your home they are going into and you want to be sure of who you are letting into your home. Ensure that the alarm company you are considering enforces drug testing on all their employees. You want to make sure the person entering your home is not under the influence of any substance.
Industry Experience and Field ExperienceMiami homes are as diverse as the people that live in Miami, Fl. All homes are not created equally, and thus require an experienced person to manage wiring it correctly. As stated before, having a state licensed alarm company in Miami doesn't necessarily mean that the person entering your Miami home is qualified to actually perform the work. It is absolutely necessary to ask what actual job experience the person installing your system has. This is necessary because your Miami alarm system requires wiring done for it to properly work and it takes an experienced alarm installer to hide that wiring behind walls or ceilings. An inexperienced alarm installer will get the same job done but will not have the ability to hide the wiring and resorts to stapling all the wiring on the outside of walls and ceilings. Experience is what it takes to learn to custom run these wires in a way where they wont be visible.
Latest Technology KnowledgeMost people think that the best company to use in Miami is the alarm company that has been around the longest. Although years of experience is a plus when it comes to performing an adequate wiring job that you will be satisfied with, that doesn't necessarily mean they are up to date with the latest technology. The alarm industry is constantly changing and requires for alarm companies to keep up to date with the latest technologies. New products are always being released with better features but these features require training in order for them to be used properly. Many of the older alarm companies in Miami are still using outdated equipment because they have been doing things the same way for so long that they are just not up to date with the latest technological advances in alarm equipment. Miami alarm companies are entering into a new era in home security with the advent of interactive alarm services. These interactive services require certification and training. Make sure the Miami alarm company you are considering is on top of these new services and products.
