Re Scarborough Security

In December 2015 Scarborough Security replaced our old creaking alarm system with a new, modern one.  We were impressed with the advances in technology!  Our system has settled down we and is much more secure and more flexible than the old one.  The siren is inside so that neighbours don't have to suffer from false alarms.

We were also very happy with the installation and follow-up service and so we recommend Scarborough Security for anyone needing a new system.  

Although we have never had a real emergency, we find that whenever our alarm goes off (through user error) SSS have over many years responded promptly and well.  We were also impressed during a recent night Keepers patrol to see the SSS car diligently cruising around.

Any security company needs a certain customer base to dedicate a car to a specific area like ours.  Scarborough is which is probably only big enough for a dedicated car from one company, and as Scarborough Security has a long local history and gives good service, it is the obvious one for us.  We hope they will also be the choice for anyone considering a new contract or a change, so that continuing to serve our area will be worthwhile for Scarborough Security.
