  • Employee Background Checks for Added Safety

    Employee Background Checks

    You need to be careful when it comes to letting people into your home. All Protection 1 employees undergo thorough background checks. Plus, our licensed employees go through an additional fingerprint background check to ensure state and federal compliance, where required. We take your personal security seriously and carefully screen each employee being sent to your home-whether it be for installation, service or consultation.

  • Installation is Critical

    Professional Installation

    Protection 1 security technicians are licensed professionals that treat your home with respect. Our technicians receive extensive certification and training, and when they install a security system, customers can expect professional installation and cleanup. They know exactly how to locate security sensors in your home for the best protection.

  • Company Owned Alarm Monitoring Centers

    When something sounds an alarm in your home, you want help immediately. Did you know that many security companies have only one system for monitoring or else they outsource it? We take monitoring seriously and always employ triple redundancy monitoring for home alarm systems. If a system goes down because of severe weather-our other systems automatically take over to continue your protection. Our capabilities are so respected, over 4,000 independent security companies contract to use our monitoring services.
