For quite some time now, I have been painfully aware I do things slightly differently than the norm. This is something I learned from my Dad who was always telling me to do things a certain way, never to take shortcuts and for gods sakes use the right tool for the right job. Although I still do use a flat blade screwdriver as a chisel, my Dad's life lessons did not fall on deaf ears.
Some call it "anal", some picky, while some have a few choice words I will not mention here. Personally, I like to think of it as the right way to do things. When it comes to installing Security Alarm Systems, there are several points which I am very adamant anyone who works for me follow. When I tell many other people in the industry about "My way" of doing things, some wonder how I can make any money, and newbies question the legitimacy behind doing things the "Long way" (Particularly when it comes to my refusal to install wireless security alarm systems.) Yes, taking short-cuts and installing wireless security alarm systems is easier. Yes, I could definitely make more money if I were to do business this way... But I won't. Why? Because it Matters.
The same holds true for the KeepSafe Systems' Security Alarm Installation Standards. Among the highest in the industry, KeepSafe Systems goes beyond "ULC" and Electrical Safety Branch standards insisting all wires be home-run, all connections be soldered with a minimum of 1" splice, rare earth magnets are used on all door/window contacts, and all devices are tested. This is far from a complete list of the KeepSafe Systems Installation standards but it does illustrate my personal dedication to doing things the right way...
Because it Matters.
Beyond our strict installations Standards, on a business level, I also like to keep things different. This is evident in the multiple window sticker sizes and layout to what I must say is the best looking and best made lawn sign in the security alarm industry. In addition, at KeepSafe Systems, we strive to use equipment made in Canada, or at the very least North America or Europe. Once again, this is all, Because it Matters.
So why choose KeepSafe Systems???? Simple,
Because You Matter.
And to my Parents, thank you for all you have done to make me who I am today. :) I say this,
Because They Matter.
