Favorite Intrusion System Survey Questions - What To Include?

We are doing an intrusion alarms survey in upcoming days.

Below is a list of example questions to start with. These need to be open ended questions so we can gather color and insights from the community. We will be paying for each and every completed response.

  1. What is your favorite intrusion alarm system or brand? Why?
  2. What improvements would be most helpful for intrusion systems?
  3. How often are intrusion systems replaced? Why?
  4. What is the main weakness or problem with intrusion systems?
  5. For central station monitoring, do you offer mandatory or optional service contracts?

and so on...

In the comments below, let us know which questions are missing and which ones you want asked.

Please do not answer the questions as that is what the upcoming survey will be for. Right now, we just want to discuss what questions to ask and what to cover.

Thanks!
