Any person calling to carry out a survey with the view to installing a security alarm, fire alarm, access control system, or a CCTV system will be shown around the entire property, therefore gaining knowledge of all its weak points and above all, its contents and your valuables!! Rest assured, that all GCS personnel are security screened for a minimum of 10 years in accordance with the British Standards and NSI code of practice. All GCS staff carry ID cards with an accompanying photograph. Unlike some of the larger national companies we do not use door to door sales people.
These days, nearly all Security Companies, particularly the multi-national companies send along a professional Sales Person to carry out the site survey. Usually these sales people have had little or no technical training, therefore you are unlikely to get the system you would require.
Here at GCS Alarms we recognise that total commitment to Quality must start at the very beginning, and all site surveys are carried out by trained engineers who can answer any questions you may have.
Our aim is to provide our customers with exactly what they need when they need it.
