Question: How Long Does a Standard Security System Last?
Answer: We get this question ALL the time. A standard security system is good for several years (fact: we have some systems out that are still functional that are older than some of our employees because, honestly, they were just installed and maintained correctly). As long as it’s well maintained and batteries are changed at regular intervals, there’s little reason for a security system to sustain damage or need to be completely replaced. For the most part, the basic infrastructure of your security system will remain the same over time. However, as new security devices are released with additional features, they may be added to an existing system to keep it up to date. For instance, new light and camera technologies can replace their older counterparts fairly easily.
