What Sets EMC Security Apart?

What Sets EMC Security Apart?

Founded in 1998, EMC Security is locally-owned in northern Georgia and stands tall within home and business security. They believe in their service so much that they offer a contract-free option, allowing you to cancel at any time. EMC Security’s redundant monitoring system connects to their central stations that are TMA (CSAA) 5 diamond certified, and UL approved. EMC Security has a flexible approach to security by allowing customers to use their existing equipment. For example, if you have an ADT system, you’ll still be able to have EMC Security service using the same equipment. They also offer DIY and professional installation for new equipment. Home security systems start as low as $179, and their starter small business security systems are available for $259.

Pros

  • Redundant monitoring
  • Contract-free options

Frequently Asked Questions About EMC Security

Frequently Asked Questions About EMC Security

What is redundant monitoring?

When an alarm system is triggered, the signal is sent to multiple, separate monitoring stations. This is an alternative to using a single command center and can reduce communication wait times and minimize the risk of gaps in active monitoring.

Are annual contracts required?

No, at EMC Security, contract-free services are offered and you may cancel at any time.

Can I use my own equipment?

Yes, EMC Security allows you to use security equipment you already own as long as it is compatible. To determine compatibility, a free in-home consultation may be required.

Does EMC Security offer smart home connectivity?

Yes, you can connect and control your favorite smart home devices to your system for smart home security. With EMC, you can connect lights, locks, thermostats and more. Control them all with EMC’s mobile app. You’ll also be able to see live camera activity and playback clips.

Do I have to have my EMC Security system professionally installed?

No, you can choose DIY installation or have a professional technician install it for you.
