  • How much do security systems cost?
    This is often one of the first questions we’re asked when a new potential customer makes contact.

The cost of a security system is based on two factors: The cost of the hardware – cameras, alarms, door entry units, cabling, sensors and more The time it takes to install the system This is why it’s always important to understand a customer’s budget and their objectives. As security system professionals, if we know the objectives and the budget we can make the right recommendations. After all, it’s very hard to put a price on security.
