Valid membership of SSAIB tells you that your security company is qualified to design, install and maintain your home burglar alarm.
Essex Police recommend using a company with SSAIB (or NSI) approval because these companies are tested for exceptional standards every year. They're a safe bet.
However, it's critical that you check the credentials of the company you intend to use for the installation of your home alarm system.
If you don't, you're relying on their word. Anyone can get a website built with all kinds of information and badges on it, but how do you know if they are telling the truth?
If the company say they are accredited by SSAIB you will need to check that they really are. Read on for simple step by step instructions on how to quickly find out if the installer in question is truly accredited.

You can use the contact details from the site to phone and enquire about a security system or request a free home security survey!
