Boy what some
marketeers will do to induce you into believing that they are offering
you a FREE security system.Star doesn't offer a free security system
and here is the reasons why we don't. Instead we offer quality and
dependable systems that are fairly priced.
First of all
most people don't believe that you will get something for nothing.
Businesses would fail if they really operated this way. It just
may seem that way. Here is why.
If your offered
FREE health insurance to cover you, but it only covers you for headaches
and colds, would you accept that as adequate health coverage? Of
course you wouldn't. It's not real and complete health care. If
you're an intelligent and a experienced person, why would you think
or believe someone is going to give you something for nothing? It
may have been because you saw the word FREE.
So the same
goes for the "Free High Tech Security System" that you heard about
on the radio or television. Its only a come on to get into your
home or business. Their intention seems to be to scare you with
horror stories and crime statistics about how many people were murdered
in the United States and how many burglaries were committed. Their
intention is to sell you a full system that costs thousands of dollars.
If you take
their "FREE" system , you usually have to pay $30.00 and up or so
plus tax per month for the next 6 to 10 years (read the contract
details carefully). So really all that they are going to usually
protect with a FREE system is two doors and install one motion detector.
So if you sign a 6 to 10 year contract with them, the system is
they don't tell you is that as soon as you sign the contract, they
usually sell the contract at a discount to a finance company. You
may never own the equipment, and if you were to sell your home or
business during the life of the contract, you are responsible to
pay the balance for the entire term. You are actually leasing the
system just like you would do a car. If you want to get out of your
lease, you have to pay off the balance and return the car.
upon how much equipment they installed in your home or business,
the alarm company receives from the finance company anywhere from
$1,000 to $3,000 for this contract that you signed. The alarm company
gets all of their money up front and you have no protection if the
alarm company goes out of business, since your contract was sold
to a finance company. So you see their system may not be free at
all, especially if you have to call another alarm company to service
the system of the original alarm company which maybe no longer in
Now what if
a burglar enters an unprotected door or area of your home or business,
who do you sue for bad design? Not the free system alarm company.
They're probably long gone. Remember they got their money from the
finance company, and yes, you have the finance company desiring
to collect on the contract regardless of your loss or degree of
protection. Since the finance company is not an alarm company, they
cannot service your alarm system, but want you to pay on the contract.
Now you have a situation where you are paying a finance company
and another alarm company to service your system if the original
alarm company is out of business.
Systems, Inc. does not operate this way. We are a full service security
firm that will secure your home or business as through we were living
or employed there. We are in the live safety and loss prevention/detection
business. We only install a complete custom designed security system
which meets your needs.
So the moral
of the story, is that there are no free security systems, just ones
that seems so and that are very inadequate to afford any real and
