Some companies make claims that are downright misleading. Beware of high-pressure sales agents—especially when you hear any of the following in their sales pitch:
(Roll over sales pitch for “The Facts”)
- This offer is only good today and I won’t be back tomorrow. You HAVE to buy this today.
If a security company is going to be there for you long term, they absolutely should be there when YOU choose to make a purchase. Don’t fall for a high pressure sales pitch, especially when your family’s security is involved.
- Your security system is outdated and uses old technology.
Security technology has been proven to be stable and reliable for ten to twenty years and new is not always better. But if your needs have changed or you want some new features, it’s much smarter to check out what Protection 1 has to offer instead of getting locked into a long-term contract at higher rates.
- Your contract with Protection 1 has expired. This is a great time to switch!
YOU and Protection 1 are the only people who know if your contract is is up. Remember, it can cost more to switch than to upgrade or expand your current Protection 1 system. Talk to us before you sign anything.
- We purchased Protection 1 and are here to upgrade your system.
This home security scam is a flat-out lie. Protection 1 is not for sale, nor has it been acquired. We are celebrating 25 years of service and were recently named Dealer of the Year by Security Dealer Magazine.
- I can offer you a FREE system or upgrade if you put our company’s sign in your yard.
Not true. Your “free” system will have an activation fee attached to it, usually $100 or more, PLUS a 42 to 60 month contract and a higher monthly fee. A “free” system could end up costing you around $2,000.
- I represent Honeywell and am here to upgrade your system.
Honeywell and GE are manufacturers of equipment and not a security service provider. If you hear this, someone is definitely misleading you.
