With the onset of summer and the increasing temperatures, many of us look forward to spending more time outdoors. However, this delightful season also brings along a less pleasant annual tradition – the influx of door-to-door salesmen, often peddling home security systems. While some represent legitimate companies, others exploit the summer spike in sales activity to blend in and prey on unsuspecting homeowners.

These salesmen typically use hard-selling tactics to meet their quotas and fulfill their commission-based pay structure. Name-dropping neighbors who have allegedly purchased their systems, they’ll use every trick in the book to try and convince you that your current security system is inadequate. They might even use fear-based tactics such as emphasizing increased crime rates during summer.

Unfortunately, some of these door-to-door representatives are more than just pushy – they’re scammers. This fact emphasizes the need to be cautious and well-informed to protect your home and family.

Here are a few tips to avoid falling prey to these summer security scams:

  • Trust your instincts: If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. Be skeptical if a salesman uses high-pressure tactics or insists on immediate decision making.
  • Check for proper identification: Any reputable company will provide its employees with official identification. Don’t hesitate to ask for it.
  • Verify before making decisions: If a salesman claims to represent a security company, take the time to call that company and verify. Never agree to anything on the spot, especially before conducting your own research.
