Different people and companies place different value on their property and, as such, will want to install different security measures to protect it and there is an enormous variety of systems on today’s market, from the fairly normal, such as alarms and closed-circuit television (CCTV), to the more ‘hi-tech’ or ‘high security’, such as retina scanners.

Systems can be installed just about anywhere, on all forms of private property and in public spaces, from houses to industrial estates.

Security systems installers are responsible for installing and servicing these systems, as well as teaching customers how to maintain, activate and disarm systems. They will often be the first point of contact if a customer, whether an individual homeowner or a business, needs help operating their security system.

Before a system is installed, security systems installers will assess and inspect premises and work out cost estimates for approval by a customer. They then install the system. This could involve placing sensors around a room or building, installing cameras, setting up control rooms, drilling holes for wiring and testing.

Some, if not most security companies will offer a call-out service for customers, so installers may at times be required to visit customers and service alarms at unsociable times and during weekends.
