Review Last Updated: January 14, 2017

Security System Overview

Westec Intelligent Surveillance (Westec) security systems offers home management solutions that monitor the status of residential properties, giving real-time feedback to home owners. The systems cover: intrusion detection, fire and carbon monoxide detection, asset protection and wireless backup.

Westec uses 2GIG equipment in their home security packages. The 2GIG equipment depends on the home and its specifications. Westec offers life-time warranties with parts and labor on all of their equipment.

The Good

Interface security systems has years of experience in the security industry and they have the capacity to install sophisticated home security solutions in any type of home. The company has continuously expanded its operations over time; in 2012, Interface acquired Westec Intelligence surveillance further increasing its capacity to deliver its services over more locations. The company has also been certified by Microsoft, Cisco and has a Six Sigma black belt rating among others.

The Bad

The company does not give price details of the products offered. It is therefore difficult to compare the products with those offered by competitors on a price level. Given that most security solutions require a monthly fee throughout the contract, it is important for the company to atleast give the minimum price that a customer should expect to pay.

The Bottom Line

Home security is as much the responsibility of the home owner as the security company. The benefits offered by a security system should not be outweighed by the cost incurred. Every consumer will have different needs depending on the type, value, size and contents of a home. A good security company should have a system or a combination of systems that meet varied consumer needs.
