Finding a home security specialist

Keeping your home and possessions protected is important, and a home security specialist is an expert in doing just that. However, finding a potential hire whose expertise you can trust can be difficult. Plentific can take the stress out of your search by generating a bespoke list of the best home security specialists in your local area, each of which will have a website profile where you can view not just their qualifications but also their past jobs and customer reviews. You can even get instant coverage for your project with the Plentific Guarantee by hiring a 'Verified' Pro.

What does a home security specialist do?

A home security specialist is an expert in ensuring that a property stays protected. They will have a strong knowledge of electronic security measures such as alarms, CCTV and boarding and access control systems, as well as new wireless and smart technology. They can also provide advice on additional security measures, such as safe boxes.

Typically, you would call a home security specialist if you felt that your property was vulnerable to criminals. However, certain firms can also provide ongoing support, including live security monitoring and even regular patrols.

It is important to always collect quotes from different tradesmen before making a decision on who to hire. One home security specialist might try to recommend outlandish or unnecessary upgrades for your property if it means raising their quote. To avoid this, be sure to get more than one opinion on what security features will be most suitable for your home.

What do you need to know about hiring a home security specialist?

If you are considering hiring a home security specialist it is important to have a good idea of exactly what you need. You should be able to get a free assessment of what kind of security your property will need, either as a home visit or over the phone.

Since you are putting your home security in someone else’s hands, you deserve to feel confident with your hire! Because of this, you should screen your candidates carefully. A strong candidate will usually have completed a course in security systems, or they may have finished an apprenticeship. Although security installation can sometimes overlap with electrical work, you should never just assume that a candidate can do the work of an electrician! A particularly good sign to look out for is if a candidate belongs to a national tradesmans’ organisation, such as the British Security Industry Association (BSIA). These groups have strict entry requirements and members will be expected to deliver top quality work on every job. If you are hiring security officers, they must have a Security Industry Authority license.

Another important way to screen your candidates is to read over the reviews from their previous customers. This can give you a good idea of a candidate’s quality, on-the-job behaviour and reliability. This kind of information can be especially important if you are planning to pay for an ongoing service: if you are paying a Pro to be available in case of an emergency, you want to make sure they can be relied on to pick up the phone!

One final thing to check when hiring a home security specialist is whether they are adequately insured. Any tradesmen working in your home should be covered by an active public liability insurance policy in case of any injuries or accidental damage. They should also be able to provide a warranty for their completed work, in case of any issues with your new security.

How much does it cost to hire a home security specialist?

The cost of hiring a home security specialist can vary significantly depending on the size and requirements of a job. When it comes to jobs like CCTV or security fence installation, the best thing you can do is to let a specialist survey your home and then discuss what your exact requirements are in order to get an accurate quote. Smaller jobs, such as burglar alarm or access control installation, will be simpler to calculate costs for. However, these can still vary depending on where you live in the UK, as well as the model and type of security feature in question.

An important thing to keep in mind is that if you are having new security installed in order to satisfy an insurance company, then it will need to be done in accordance with their requirements. In other words, you cannot just buy the cheapest options available and expect them to be happy! Ask the company to be clear about what it needs from you and let your candidate know so that they can help you deliver.

Another crucial thing to remember is that you should never accept a quote based on an estimate alone, especially if the tradesman offering it has not inspected your property. When you do not have a quote in writing, an ‘estimate’ can quickly give way to hidden costs! Get an exact quote from your candidate as well as a contract and make sure that they cannot approve additional costs without consulting your first.
