Below are some Frequently Asked Questions for you to review. If you have any questions that are not listed below, please feel free to contact us at (239) 772-8835.
Who will be coming out to install my new alarm system.
Innerlink installs and services their own customers, no need to worry about subcontracting another installation company.
Does the home security company have their own monitoring center?
Innerlink has their own central station, an Innerlink Security representative will be in contact upon an alarm signal.
Will the company that installed my alarm system be the one to provide the service too?
Innerlink sells, installs, monitors and services all their customers, no need for third-party.
What happens if I cancel my phone service and I have no back-up cellular radio installed on my alarm system?
Home security companies offer cellular radios to use as a back-up form of alarm transmission, and as a primary form. However, if you have no phone service and no cellular radio installed with your alarm system—your alarm system will be considered local, which means only the alarm will sound. There is no way to have your alarm monitored without either one of these. Innerlink can provide you with an alarm cellular device if you choose to cancel your land line service.
Does the company offer leased alarm systems or do I own it after a certain amount of time?
Innerlink has many options for our customers to choose from; buy, lease or previously owned, we will work with every customer to fit their needs and budget.
Can I have an alarm system installed, but not have it monitored?
Innerlink provides alarm systems that are not monitored. However, alarm monitoring is a very critical part of your home’s security. Besides, opting for alarm monitoring could save you money on your new home security system and your homeowner’s insurance premium.
Will I be provided with alarm yard signs and decals to put up around my home?
Innerlink provides customers with a yard sign and window decals. We offer these to our customers to not only deter criminal activity ever further, but also to “mark” a home, so to speak. If an alarm signal is called in to the police, the dispatcher will usually ask for the alarm company name. When looking for your address, a police officer may be able to spot your home quicker by seeing the Innerlink Security yard sign in front of it.
Innerlink offers a wireless alarm package for existing structures. If you desire a hard-wired alarm system in an existing residence or business, please know dry wall repairs will be required. We will provide you with options to best suit your needs.
If I am not happy with the company after my installation, can another home security company take over my alarm monitoring?
Some home security companies install proprietary systems. This means the systems are exclusive to their company. Not only will other home security companies not be able to monitor your alarm system, you will not be able to add any upgrades to it through another company. Innerlink does not use proprietary alarm panels, our panels are capable of being taken over by another alarm company but we put our customers first with outstanding service and satisfaction.
Will the company offer me something to show proof that I had an alarm system installed to give to my homeowner’s insurance company?
Innerlink submits an alarm certificate to monitored customers at the completion of the alarm installation.
