Summer is the season of door to door soliciting

The weather is getting warmer and people are getting out, this includes door to door sales. A member of Dial One Security will always be able to provide you with a company photo ID to identify who they are. They will NEVER ask you for your account number or try to force their way into your home. Dial One Security does not do door to door sales calls unless you, the customer, ask us to come out to your home. If you have someone come to your home and they say they are from our company, Honeywell trying to sell you something or need to check the chip in your system, they are probably a solicitor. The best way to protect yourself is to not allow them in your home, contact your local authorities, and as always you can reach us 24/7, 365 days a week by calling our main number or Central Station. We value our customers privacy and safety, and always will. We are here for you to keep you safe!
