Remember when selecting a company to install CCTV or Access Control System, Always ensure the company is registered with the PSA (Private Security Authority of Ireland) and always ask for their licence number.


The Dangers of Hiring an Unlicensed Security Contractor

It is not surprising that an unlicensed Security contractor would be less expensive than a licensed contractor. Unlicensed contractors have an advantage that enables them to provide the lowest prices. They do not have to pay licensing fees, they do not have to have insurance to protect their work, and more often than not they do not purchase employers and public liability insurance. Without these added expenses the unlicensed contractor or handyman can provide their services at a rate lower than the legitimately licensed professional.

What are the risks to you?

QUALITY – an unlicensed installer may install sub-standard equipment in your home and there are no guarantees that this equipment is fit for the purpose of protecting your family, home or premises.

Licensed installers must comply with current European standards set out by the PSA for high quality Alarm systems.

SECURITY – the PSA require a Garda Vetting form from all individuals engaged in the installation of burglar Alarms, CCTV & Access Control Systems. This ensures that licensed installers are in good standing with the law and they are obliged to disclose any criminal offences. You do not have this reassurance when dealing with an unlicensed individual.

COMPLAINTS – if you have any issues with the standard of service provided by an unlicensed installer there is very little you can do. If you use a licensed installer you can report any issues or complaints to the PSA and they will investigate the services provided by the installer. The PSA may revoke an installer’s license if standards are not adhered to so it is in the installer’s interest to do a good job and ensure you, the customer, is happy with the standard of work.

PROSECUTION – if you employ an unlicensed installer you are breaking the law! Penalties range from a €3,000 fine and up to 5 years imprisonment.

As you can see there are many very good reasons to use a licensed alarm installer for your home or business security systems.

You may pay a little more, but it’s a small price to pay for the reassurance and added peace of mind a professional licensed installer can provide.
