How To Choose A Home Automation Company

Choosing a home automation company is an important part of protecting your home from threatening situations such as intrusions and fires. However, with so many options, selecting the right alarm company can often feel like a daunting task.

Being proactive and doing some research beforehand can prevent you from investing in an inferior home security product and ensure that you get the protection and peace of mind you deserve.

6 Questions to Ask Your Home Automation Company

Personal and home security are important considerations in today’s world and ensuring that your household is well-protected are vital.

Here are 6 questions you should ALWAYS ask before choosing an alarm company for your residence:

1. How long have you been in business?

When it comes to home security, the length of time a provider has been established directly relates to their experience. With an experienced home automation company handling your home security, you can rest assured you are receiving the best possible service.

2. What brand of equipment do you use?

Before choosing an alarm company, it is important to conduct your own research on the available home security equipment. A high-quality home automation system should provide you with convenient ways of monitoring your home from your phone, computer or tablet.

An ideal system would have:

  • Remote access to your home
  • A mobile app to securely access all your system’s features
  • A video service
  • A notification system when the alarm is triggered

3. Where Are You Located?

Most home security companies have online platforms which allow them to provide services to clients anywhere in the world.

However, it is always best to go with a locally-based company as they can provide easier and more efficient maintenance and will have specific knowledge about security concerns of your city.

4. Do I Have To Sign a Contract?

Make sure to find out from the home automation company if they work on a contractual basis. Before selecting a company it’s very important that the details of the contract are clearly communicated to you and that you understand them fully.


  • When will you be required to renew your contract?
  • Does it renew itself automatically?
  • In the event that you are not satisfied with the home security service, can you opt out of the contract?

5. Are you licensed? Do You Provide Warranties?

It is very important to check whether the home automation company is licensed as this means they are operating within the stipulated laws and regulations of the area. When confirming licensure, ask about warranties on the security equipment.

A reputable alarm company will have no problem guaranteeing warranties to their customers  if they are confident in their products.

6. Can Your Home Security System qualify me for a home insurance discount?

While this may depend on your insurance provider, the installation of comprehensive home security systems can grant you a discount on your home insurance.

In some cases, increasing your home security with IP cameras, smoke detectors and alarms can reduce your home insurance by up to 20%.
