IP CCTV installer checklist
There are plenty of security installers out there, but not all have the experience and industry accreditations you rely on to ensure you get a good service and the right CCTV system for your needs. Make sure your installer ticks the right boxes:
- Do you have the appropriate industry accreditations?
Chris Lewis Fire & Security is a NSI Gold Installer/ECA Approved Contractor. We have held these accreditations for a number of years and believe they demonstrate our commitment to delivering our services to a consistently high standard.
- Does your company have over 10 years extensive installation and service experience and a team that is capable of National installations?
We have undertaken a number of high profile national installations over the years and have been chosen by businesses, local government and major universities to provide integrated security solutions.
- Do you have dedicated “in house” IT resource to provide ongoing backup and support after the initial installation is complete?
We have invested in building a substantial knowledge base within the company so that we can successfully undertake any IT-related security project our clients need.
- Is your company a Preferred Partner for IP CCTV manufacturers, and do you have access to the widest possible range of equipment to ensure the best solution is provided?
We believe that it’s only after listening to our client's requirements that we can start to build a solution. Our approach is about providing solutions for the long term not sales for the short term.
- Have you got testimonials and case studies of recent successful IP CCTV installations we can review?
