Q What separates
PTS Security from other security companies?
A Tired of calling and pressing numbers on your phone just to talk to a live person? Don't want to get locked in to a long term contract? PTS is the answer! PTS is a small company that puts you first! Twenty eight years experience we know how to treat customers and do the job right. We are reachable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with full time emergency service 365 days of the year.
Q Can I sign a contract anyways to lock in my rate?
A Yes you can. Most corporations request contracts to be for a specific length of time for annual budgeting purposes. We can easily accommodate each company with a contact length they would feel comfortable with.
The Evergreen law, passed in October 2004, says customers must be given ample notification (15-60 days) that their contracts are about to be renewed, and that customers have the right to cancel contracts within that time frame, according the Attorney General. We will give advanced notice of any customers or companies under contract with PTS.
Q How much do you charge to switch my alarm to your company?
A If we can reprogram your system, there is no charge
to switch you over and there is never a connection fee. We will also inspect
all points of protection for proper operation.

unequivocal, NO. Some people are so

the fact is, a properly installed and maintained system should never, ever,
false alarm. A gust of wind or a power outage is not the basis of the problem. It
is only the trigger of a malfunction. Any number of possibilities, like a low
battery or a bad contact, can be the contributing factor. Certainly no weather
or power anomalies can be the cause.
