Great Deals May Not Be So Great In The Long Run...

Be sure to look more deeply; even if it is less expensive, it may not effectively secure your property.
Beware of those great specials you hear on the radio for inexpensive security systems, because in the long run, you will likely pay MUCH more. Recently, we’ve noted numerous radio ads offering installation of free or discounted alarm systems. Great deal, right?!? Maybe not. These advertised systems are generally BASIC systems that include 1 door contact and 1 motion detector – which is typically not enough equipment to effectively secure your building. They also come with a 3- to 5-year service agreement advertised at ’less than $2 per day,’ which amounts to over $700 per year for monitoring.
Lappen offers 1-year monitoring agreements, and our standard monitoring rates are less than HALF of those advertised fees. If you do the math, it means that upon completing the advertiser’s 5-year agreement, you will have paid over $2,000 more for ongoing monitoring than you would with Lappen. What’s more, Lappen Security offers free consultations, and will provide you with a proposal for a system that will effectively secure your building, and which is customized to the specific needs of your facility. Contact us to learn more, or to schedule your free consultation.
