Fine Print in Security System contracts

Read the fine print

Today I looked at one of my competitors advertisements and it says They are giving away a FREE SYSTEM, FREE SENSORS and even a FREE GIFT CARD. I looked at the fine print and found a few items that may be helpful to you as a customer.

FINE PRINT ISSUES TO BE AWARE OF:
This is valid only with home systems.
This offer includes up to 15 sensors free for pre wired homes or upto 7 free sensors for wireless but labor charges MAY apply.
This offer with the lower monitoring rate does not include a cellular connection but is contingent upon the customer paying for a landline.
This offer does not include interactive control or remote arm and disarm (Elite)
This offer does not include the extended warranty. (Service Plan – Repair agreement etc…) Hourly rates will apply for repairs.
Gift card is through a 3rd Party and they charge a shipping and handling fee.
The system is apparently free but there is a $99 dollar installation fee.
There is a 36 month agreement that has to be signed
Form of payment must be by credit card or electronic charge to your checking or savings account.
Termination fee applies
This offer is contingent upon the customer passing a CREDIT CHECK. (Peak Alarm does NOT do CREDIT CHECKS)
This offer is to get the salesman in the door because this offer cannot be combined with other offers so the low monitoring rate may not apply

Review your alarm contract closely

Check the BBB Better Business Bureau www.bbb.org on every company that you get pricing from. Some of our competitors even the ones that are running ads similar to this add have thousands of complaints filed. Two of our competitors have over 3000 complaints on the BBB. Peak Alarm has had one complaint filed with the BBB in the last 3 years. That is a real issue because you might sign up and then find out you signed a 60 month agreement or if you don’t have a phone line you end up paying over $50 per month for monitoring. Often if you are in SLC they sign you up for monitoring and since the police don’t respond you have to end up paying a guard service which costs much more than the $10 per month that Peak Charges. Get the facts. Peak Alarm is the only local company that has both a Guard Service, an alarm company and a UL listed Central station to do your monitoring. Many of the others have out of state monitoring stations and no guard service or a 3rd party guard service.

Why do security monitoring costs vary so much?

Peak Alarm, Peak Guard, Peak AV, Peak Central Station

1. Like cell phone plans you can pay more up front and less per month or less upfront and more per month.

2. There are many additional services such as late to close, early to open, web access, auto arm/disarm, elevator monitoring, schedules, lock control, lighting control, garage door control and the list goes on. Depending on which services you have the rates vary.

3. Analog phone line monitoring could be right around $26.00 dollars per month

4. Cell phone monitoring could be as low as $35.00 per month

5. Interactive monitoring where you can arm and disarm may be as low as $40 per month although if the price is a bit more you can lower the upfront costs.

6. There is no such thing as security companies giving you free equipment. If you lock into a 36 month agreement with Peak Alarm for $44.00 per month and you pay $99 upfront your overall costs add up to $1,683.00 over the 36 months. With a 60 month is it much more money.

7. A company that claims to give you free equipment normally has a 40 or 60 month agreement and normally the interactive starts at $49 per month so over the period of 60 months you are paying $2,940.00 even if it were at the same monitoring rate of $44 it would still be much more $2,640 so the FREE equipment is not really free.

8. Know that if you are getting rid of your landline (analog phone line) to upgrade to a cellular that will give you interactive arm and disarm often you will need to upgrade your alarm panel so the cost to do so varies from system to system depending on how old it is. Radio is another option for monitoring.

Peak Alarm best Alarm Company in Utah

Peak Alarm is the Leader in Utah

http://www.peakalarm.com Peak Alarm is the only Alarm company that has a UL listed Central Station and a full guard and patrol division.

Peak Alarm has been in business since 1969 and has only had one complaint filed with the www.bbb.org Better Business Bureau in the last 3 years.

Peak Alarm is the only UL listed Central Station that holds 5 UL Certificates.

Call Larry Love (801) 428 1384 or email him at Larry@peakalarm.com for pricing and more information about Peak Alarm.

Many of the TOP TEN, TOP FIVE or BEST ALARM COMPANY lists on the INTERNET are paid services so be sure to look each company up on the BBB web site before you make your decision.

Understand that Peak Alarm does not do Free equipment so if you are paying $149 for the basic PeakLink system with a monthly of $44 per month over 36 months you are paying $149 + $1,584 or $1,733 total but the equipment is not free, nothing ever is.

Other companies will charge you $56 per month or more for 60 months yet they give you FREE equipment but beware because if you do the math you end up paying $3,360 which is almost double so you are paying over $1,600 in order to save a few hundred dollars.

Larry Love has over 20 years in the industry and can help you with all of your alarm, camera, access control and fire alarm needs.

What is the SAFE Neighborhood program?

no olvidas cosas como papel de baño y ropa para el frio en plastico

What is the Safe Neighborhood program? (Not to be confused with Secure Communities)
(Espanol mas abajo/Spanish below)

Los niños deben tener sus kits tambien

After a major disaster take care of yourself, assure that your family is fine and then check your home to make sure there are no gas leaks or other problems and then grab your 96 hour kit and GO TO SCHOOL.(The closest school) At school you will sign in so you can be on their list of those that are OK. Many CERT teams will also be staging at these schools but others will report to other buildings or areas according to their local CERT plan.
The Safe Neighborhood program is being implemented and each Salt Lake City School has large containers with clipboards, instruction sheets and an entire set up in order to get accurate information from the public after a disaster. This program will work in conjunction with the schools, CERT, HAM, The Red Cross and local authorities to help coordinate information and organize.
After a major disaster we should not expect help for at least 96 hours, hence the 96 hour kit with food, water, change of clothes in plastic, copies of your important documents on a USB and hardcopy in plastic ziplock, flashlight, first aid etc…(See list on fema.gov)
CERT is Community Emergency Response Teams which will be local people that have been trained in the federal FEMA program to assist in the event of a disaster.
John Flynt the guy in charge of our emergency management program here in Salt Lake put this program together and when you want additional information go to this site: www.bereadyslc.com and click on SAFE at the top.

Peak Alarm open all the time

There are different UL listings in different categories so when you decide on a Central Station and installation and service company make sure they have the certifications in the different areas that you will need for your specific projects such as High Security, Fire Alarm, UL installation and such. Just because the Central Station has one UL certification does not mean they are qualified in the other areas that you may need.

When you find any questionable references or errors that need to be corrected contact Larry@peakalarm.com and he will make the corrections.

There are only two CRZM local listed central stations in Utah . This certificate is for Central Stations that have personnel trained and on duty to specifically handle signals covered under the CRZH listing that is above so the system is installed properly and then monitored by a certified company. It is best when the company has both certificates.

1. Avantguard (BP10390) * CRZM
2. Peak Alarm ( BP20783) CRZM

UL updates their records on an ongoing basis so be sure to verify on their web site. This information was as of 5/27/16. On the UL site go to online certifications directory at the bottom to find the companies in an area or state that hold certifications. All of this information is public record on the UL.com site. When you find any errors on this blog please inform Larry@peakalarm.com and he will correct those errors after verification of the correct information.

*Mountain Alarm/FPS https://www.mountainalarm.com/ sold Avantguard a while back although they still use Avantguard as their Central Station and apparently there is still a relationship between the companies as far as ownership goes. Mountain Alarm is the security side of the business and FPS is Fire Protection Services which does fire alarm etc…

There are about 200 Central Stations in the US that are both UL and 5 Diamond Certified and Peak ALarm is one of those. The CSAA 5 Diamond certification indicates that all of our Central Station dispatchers/employees are highly trained to react calmly and appropriately to high stress situations.

IT IS BEST TO LOOK UP THE COMPLAINTS ON THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU THE OFFICIAL BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU WEB SITE www.bbb.org
From the information that we have about the UL listed Central Stations in this document the LDS Church does not monitor accounts as a business nor does L3 Communications West or Boeing so those Central Stations hold the proper listings in order to meet the criteria and provide services within their realm so you can’t call them up and have them monitor your security or fire alarm accounts. UL listed Central Stations out of State can be used although some Fire Marshals request that a local Central Station be used in certain cases. Often insurance companies and other requirements are in play so they want a local central station to do the monitoring and provide the installation and service when needed.

Peak Alarm is the only company that currently holds all 5 of the above UL Certifications in Utah

Peak Alarm also has a full Guard and Patrol division as well as armed or unarmed guards. Peak Alarm has been in business since 1969.
