Security professional installing a surveillance camera

When it comes to installing your commercial surveillance system, it’s best to rely on a professional from a licensed security company. Although individuals who advertise their services on Kijiji may be more affordable, if something goes wrong, the cost to have the system repaired, replaced or re-installed could quickly accumulate. Here are three good reasons to avoid cutting corners on your surveillance system installation.


  1. You won’t have any service support When you hire a licensed professional to install your surveillance system, they’ll walk you through how everything works and what to do if something goes wrong. Furthermore, they’ll provide you with expert advice on how to maintain your system to keep it in good working order. However, when you hire an individual off of Kijiji, you’ll be left to figure out all the details on your own. In addition, they likely won’t provide follow-up support as part of their offer.

  2. You don’t benefit from professional knowledge Professional installers have extensive training and industry certifications that qualify them to accurately install your surveillance system and ensure it operates as intended. For example, professional installers know where to place cameras and motion sensors, as installing them too high or too low can reduce their effectiveness. An unlicensed installer may not have this specialized knowledge, which could lead to false alarms and undetected break-ins.

  3. You don’t get a security assessment Before installing your system, a professional installer from a licensed security company will conduct a thorough assessment of your business to identify weak spots and areas of concern. This will allow them to recommend the best surveillance setup to ensure your facility is as safe as possible. An individual off of Kijiji won’t take this extra step to ensure your system is well-adapted to your needs, which could potentially put your facility at risk.
