All Manufacturers have pros and cons, you want the security business that can offer a system based on your requirements rather than their back pocket.
The internet is a massive marketplace and you can find many reviews on prospective security businesses. These reviews should be qualified, request contact details of some of your security business’s clients to cross check reviews. A upfront and honest business will supply this.
When it comes to warranties with electronic components you need to ensure you are receiving true warranties. Ask what they offer for both equipment and labour warranty.
