Black-Friday

Why You Should Avoid Black Friday for Home Security

As November comes around, it means only one thing for our friends in the States – Thanksgiving. The national US holiday is celebrated on the last Thursday of November every year. While that tradition hasn’t spread across to Bermuda – for obvious reasons – the day that follows certainly has.

Black Friday is held the day following Thanksgiving every year. It marks the start of the Christmas shopping season with a day of huge sales for retailers of all shapes and sizes. Those sales have even extended beyond the Friday, with special deals continuing throughout the weekend into what’s now known as ‘Cyber Monday’.

While this might be a great time to pick up a cheap TV or smart phone, it’s not the best time to go shopping for home security. Here’s why…

Black Friday rush

Whether it’s the flood of customers when shop doors open or even queues to get onto ecommerce websites, Black Friday has become almost synonymous with a rush of customers making frantic purchases.

What this means, however, is that those customers don’t take the time to think about what they’re buying. As mentioned, that’s fine with some products. It only takes a minute to check the size and definition of a TV, for instance.

However, when it comes to home security, time is absolutely your best friend. You want to spend as much time as possible considering the best security products for your needs. Do you need CCTV, intruder alarms or both? Do you want a system that’s connected to your phone? And do you need multiple cameras to cover different areas of your property?

There are so many questions to answer, which simply aren’t worth skimming over to save a few dollars.

Products they can’t shift

Because of the rush and pressure mentioned above, many retailers will use Black Friday as an opportunity to sell second-rate products. They’ll fill the shelves with products they can’t shift or offer the best discounts on stock they’ve had sitting about for a while.

That’s definitely not what you want to protect your home. Whether it’s surveillance cameras, intruder alarms or smoke detectors, it’s always best to get state-of-the-art products for complete peace of mind.

Expert advice and installation

When you’re purchasing home security products, you want the reassurance of expert advice and installation. From camera placement to the best system for your needs, security specialists can provide invaluable assistance and guidance to make sure your home is protected from thieves, fire or just criminal damage.

That kind of service simply isn’t going to be on offer during the Black Friday rush. Or at least it won’t be from the retailers that are offering the hectic sales. Instead, look for an experienced security company you can trust and speak to them at a time that suits you.
