What type of warranties do you provide?

Our typical warranty covers security products for one year and labor/installation for 90 days. However, manufacturer warranties vary by product; some even have lifetime warranties! Electronic Security Systems also offers customized service agreements which can extend that period to cover service, maintenance, and product replacement.

What can I expect when working with Electronic Security Systems?

Our security team receives consistent up-to-date training, so you will be working with a knowledgeable team of professionals. Our security experts take the time to get to know your business and provide an in-depth analysis of your facility; this way, they can design a customized system to meet all your needs. They also make sure you understand your system so you can use it efficiently and effectively.

Along with your security system, you will receive information about important safety codes and standards to keep your system functioning properly. Our security team offers ongoing technical support even after the installation is complete, including advice on how to keep your system up to date and working effectively for your business. Ultimately, you can expect customized, consistent, professional service when you choose Electronic Security Systems.

How do I know if it’s time to update my security system?

If you are consistently having problems with your current system or you no longer trust your security system to do its job, it might be time for an upgrade. Often this is a result of older technologies (from the 2000s, 1990s, or earlier), which can be unreliable, less secure, and more limited. Modern systems offer greater flexibility, are more user-friendly, reliable, concise, and can be integrated with modern technologies like smartphones and cloud storage. Most outdated security systems can also only be monitored onsite, but security breaches don’t just happen when you’re in the building; modern systems allow for remote access and offsite monitoring, giving you greater flexibility and peace of mind.

Aside from outdated technology, it may be time to upgrade your security system if you are having problems with unauthorized people entering your facility or supervision issues within your facility. If you have a new building, have recently expanded your facility, or upgraded your facility in some way (new doors/windows/spaces), it’s also a good time to consider a new system. When in doubt, contact our experts and we can help you decide if you just need an upgrade or a completely new security system.

Are all security systems complex and expensive?

Our security systems are customized with your building and budget in mind. Whether you need a few cameras or an entire integrated security plan, we can do it all! Security systems and components are also one of the easiest ways to protect your facilities, employees, and other valuable resources, and they can actually save you money over standard lock and key sets. It’s much less expensive to remotely control one lost ID card using your access control system than it is to change all the locksets in a facility and reissue new keys to each person.
