Our Process

The Upstate Advantage


A dedicated account manager is assigned to your project, and you will be scheduled for your initial client review. Your review is our opportunity to gather information for a clear understanding of your needs.

System Design

We use computer software to craft an accurate layout of system components to illustrate a security solution that you can visualize in action. Our designs help bring system ideas to life.


Our security technicians are responsible for the installation of your system. They ensure all components are working properly and will personally program and run performance tests. Larger system installations will have a project manager who acts as a liaison for client updates.


We educate every customer on how to properly navigate each installed system, and we teach them how to access each system remotely. Once your systems are ready, we will download your mobile applications, create your user credentials, and demonstrate how to use the app.


With a 48-hour response goal for service requests, we strive to meet service needs quickly. We provide technical support for every system we install, and we offer real-time emergency and remote service support.
