Tech Corner

We take pride in our technicians. All of our employees are direct employees of Independent Alarm. We do no use questionable sub-contractors or people we would not trust in our own home.

Training: All technicians work with more senior technician’s in the field before going on their own installations. Outside training is also provided by various manufacturers as well as distributors. Our employees are encouraged to take training courses outside of their scope of work.
