*Knock Knock*… it’s summer time, you hear a knock at the door and you go to answer it. You were hoping it would be a neighbor, or a friend, or maybe even UPS delivering your long awaited package to arrive from Amazon. Unfortunately, you are out of luck and it was none of the latter but rather a high pressure security salesman.

Alarm System Door Knockers!

That’s right it seems that door to door salesmen are out in droves during the summer months. They want your business and they will pressure you until they get it, or you slam the door in their face (not literally but almost literally).

These salesmen will offer you the moon. “FREE security as long as you sign up.” I mean, why wouldn’t you want that? Here’s why….

Why You Shouldn’t Jump at the Offer for a “Free” Security System

When these companies show up to your door, what they offer sounds pretty good. A free system with equipment that looks pretty slick is hard to pass up. Let us assure you, when it comes to security systems that sound too good to be true, they usually are. Here is what you will actually get from the door to door national security companies: sloppy installs, long contracts at high rates, and terribly slow service.

People  often say “But their system is FREE and yours isn’t”. The reality is nothing is free. If these national companies were giving away everything for free, how do you think they make their millions? The answer is off of you. They put higher rates and tie you to long contracts so they get their money back at the end. Think of it like this, if you go to the Chevrolet dealership a buy a brand new 2017 Silverado and put nothing down, does that mean you got a free truck? No it just means you will pay more per months for a longer period of time.

This is similar to how national alarm companies work. They rope you in and once they have you, then usually stop caring.
