Ensuring the safety of their family and their home is a top priority in many people’s eyes. WatchDog Security and Sound in Navarre will cover you and your family in their security blanket with their expertise and genuine care for the protection of your home or small business.
Owner and President of Sales Stan Hovanec brings no shortage of experience to the table.
He developed his learned passion for security working for Seville Security and Sound in Pensacola for 18 years. There, he established a strong customer base between Pensacola and Destin.
Living in Pensacola at the time, he and his wife wanted to move to Navarre, in part because of the great school system and in part because it’s located strategically in the center of the service area WatchDog covers.
He moved here six years ago, and it’s been the best move he’s made. He calls Navarre home and wants to make sure your home is protected as well.
A Navy veteran, Hovanec and his business partner, Jason Guillory, an Air Force veteran, specialize in security systems and sound for home theaters as well as central vacuum systems.
WatchDog is a Florida state licensed alarm contractor and though the company has a national look, local is what it’s all about, offering all the same packages national companies can offer but at a better price.
“We can be less costly without sacrificing quality of the equipment and installation,” Hovanec said.
The mission of WatchDog Security and Sound is “to listen to what the clients’ needs are and meet their expectations within their budget.”
Customer-supplied equipment is gladly installed on a time and material basis.
All systems installed by WatchDog are backed by a service department 24/7. And that’s important.
The alarm company market is in buying and selling mode, meaning many longtime local companies are selling their business, which leaves the monitoring of the client in the hands of a new alarm company and its policy changes and rate hikes.
And because WatchDog is local, the deals he can make for customers are much better than what one might find at a national company.
“Because the buck stops here, I can adjust the prices as clients need. I’m not locked into a corporate account or set on pricing,” Hovanec said. “I don’t have to ask someone if I can do this or that. I can just do it, and that’s how I want to keep it. I’m not out to be a national company.”
And if you are with another company, WatchDog can probably get you a better deal.
“If you are interested in upgrading equipment and getting lower rates, call us and chances are you’ll end up with newer equipment and lower rates,” Hovanec said.
WatchDog Security and Sound works the new construction market heavily and is always eager and open to accepting new builders and homeowners. And if you just built a new home or are in the process of building a new home, you should give them a call. Even if it’s just for a second opinion, you’ll want WatchDog in the mix. We carry all necessary insurance, licensing and experience that builders require and homeowners need.
WatchDog is implementing a program for their monitored clients where they come into the client’s home once a year at no charge to test the system and make sure everything is working as efficiently and effectively as possible.
“We’re not there to generate revenue. We’re there to support our monitoring customers. I don’t think they’ll get that from anybody else,” Hovanec said.
Anyone interested in getting a security or sound system from WatchDog can call, text or email the company.
Hovanec said he’ll come out and look at what the customer’s needs are and draw up a proposal from there.
“I’m not there to get them to sign something that day,” Hovanec said. “I’m not into high pressure sales. I’m more of a presenter of facts and hope it leads to a sale.”
