These days, people tend to be naturally suspicious when it comes to disclaimers. Perhaps it’s because the “read the fine print” principle is ingrained in us from the time we are young, or maybe it’s because modern consumers are simply savvier. In any case, disclaimers tend to set off an internal “alarm” (pun intended) in people the moment they see them, and that goes for home security disclaimers as well. But it doesn’t have to be that way; at F.E. Moran Security Solutions, we want our customers to understand that the disclaimers included in their home security contracts are for their protection as well as ours. Consider these factors.
EQUIPMENT IS VALUABLE
It’s no secret that home security equipment is expensive, particularly as technology continues to advance. With each new generation of alarm monitoring technology, there are new cost considerations a company needs to make in order to offer home security products and services at affordable rates to homeowners.
For that reason, disclaimers regarding proper equipment usage, maintenance, and care are included in a home security contract.
INSTALLATION IS LOW COST
Home security contracts are typically written for multi-year durations of time. When customers express a desire to contract on a month-to-month basis, we remind them that one, two or three-year contracts are an industry standard across nearly all security companies. In exchange for their long-term loyalty, though, we offer low-cost installation that makes the transition to electronic security more manageable for them.
GOOD FAITH EFFORT
“Why does this say ‘upon approved credit’?” is a question we hear from time to time. Yes, a credit check is required and your home security contract will feature a disclaimer that makes that clear. Consenting to the credit check is a sign of good faith to demonstrate you can afford to invest in home security services. In exchange, we offer a variety of options to accommodate many different household budgets.
The truth about home security disclaimers is that they are beneficial to both parties: the company providing the services and the consumer receiving them. For questions on home security contracts and how to choose an option that works for you, contact F.E. Moran Security Solutions.
