Checking SSAIB Members - Is Your Security Company Accredited?

Date: 29 June 2023

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.

1. Go to the SSAIB website

Go to the SSAIB website search page - and fill out the form, it's easy, there are just a few fields to fill out.

First field, click the drop down arrow and select the relevant service - in this case Intruder Alarm Systems. Then choose one of the following options:

  1. add the full postcode (you can add how wide you want the search to be - within how many miles)
  2. add the company name in the search box - Blake Fire & Security.

Then, simply click search and the result will pop up.

If the company in question is an SSAIB member, they are qualified to do the install and you're good to go. How easy is that?

2. When an SSAIB members search fails…

The search feature requires the exact copy used in the database when searching by name.

To find Blake Fire & Security Systems you need to use an ampersand rather than the word and - "&" not "and".


Checking SSAIB members is easy, now what?

If the company in question shows up in the search results, you can rest assured they are a trustworthy, reliable installer.

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