These folks are for real (But ask for ID anyway)

Tuesday, June 10, 2014   by: Staff
The demand for security systems has increased over the years.
We see awareness everyday from the police and media about break and enters, home invasions, vandalism and assaults.

Over the summer of 2013, Alarm Guard Security Services expanded in Sault Ste Marie.
Alarm Guard is ADT's largest dealer in canada.
In 2013 Alarm Guard ran a summer promotion that involved sending employees door to door.
The promotion created several jobs in the Soo by hiring local people for administration, installations and sales.

The promotion was a huge success and they are back to run the program again.
Like last year Alarm Guard will run a summer promotion that will send employees door to door.

Unfortunately door to door scams have existed in the past and Alarm Guard wants to avoid any confusion with door to door scams.

To avoid confusion, it is important to be sure that the person at your door is credible and has all of the proper identification and work attire.

Here are some things that all of Alarm Guard’s employees carry with them while they are working
  • Company issued uniform
  • Visible company issued ID badge
  • Company and package information in binders
  • Recent Police background check
Security and safety is Alarm Guard’s top priority.  
AG’s employees go through extensive training and background checks to ensure customers have a quality experience they can trust.

Alarm systems work in favour of those burgling only. They know from past experience that depending on where they are they have between one half and three quarters of an hour before the police show up after they set an alarm off. Times will be slightly skewed if you live near a spot where they sit and talk to one another.

Has anyone else had NATIONAL HOME SERVICES come to their door lately? In the west end they were canvassing today trying to have everyone switch to their company for hot water tanks. They will remove the old one and it is 26.00 per month?

Anyone else have feedback?

I've found that my 2 4-footed, barking alarms work just fine...I feel like most thieves/break-ins probably don't spend the time looking for an alarm system...but the barking at the door is quite obvious. If I didn't have dogs though, I probably would get one.

I have national home service replace my water heater and they were great to deal with much better than reliance.
KIDDO 6/10/2014 3:40:12 PM Report

I wouldnt let National Home Services change my socks. This company is so unprofesional, and there workmanship is amateurish at best. If you do decide to use these hacks make sure you bring someone in to sign off on the work they do, 9 times out of ten it would not pass an inspection.

Good Luck!

$26.00 a month with National, and $43 every three months with Reliance.

Ohhh yeah.... National has a great "deal" for you.

From Alarm Systems to Water Heaters in the blink of an eye........Amazing
Frio 6/10/2014 7:17:34 PM Report

Rental is the biggest ripoff ever devised. You can buy a hot water tank with a 9 or 12 year warranty for the price of 2 to 3 years worth of rental fees.
Hmmm 6/10/2014 7:23:06 PM Report

Hard-working-girl, IF you sign up with National (and I don't suggest you do) read the fine print on the back of the contract. It could be very costly if you don't. The "salesmen/technicians" can be very persuasive, and may even tell you things that aren't exactly as they say. If you do decide to take the plunge, ask for a $13.00 per month contract, plus the $75 to $100 gov't rebate. If you decide to remain with Reliance, they will most likely give you at least a one month fee rebate. Good luck, and choose wisely.

Alarm systems do much more than protect your home from buglers. The right alarm system can protect your home from intruders,theft, fire,and even water damage, and not to mention lowers your insurance costs. I know my personal alarm system alerts both my personal phone and the police right away so my husband and I also have the option to check cameras right from our cell phones at work.
I would highly suggest looking up SSI Logix. They are my alarm provider and I swear by them. They were based out of Sudbury but have now expanded to Sault.Ste.Marie.
