Home Security Scams – Be Informed!

Summer is a time of year when home security sales agents are out in full force, sometimes using misleading sales tactics. They often hit hard with limited time offers, scare tactics and even flat out lies. They may even pretend to be a representative of Protection 1 offering to “upgrade your system”, when what they’ll really end up doing is signing you up with a completely different company.

We recognize that you have choices when it comes to your home security and we appreciate that you made an informed choice with Protection 1. As our customer, your security needs are served by a company with an A+ Better Business Bureau rating and we’ve been protecting homes and businesses for more than 25 years.
