LED Horn/Strobes from Wheelock (Eaton) have a lower current draw yet the cost of the units are about 22% more money so in order for our company to switch to these new LED units we would need to make sure it was worth the cost of switching our stock and if we would really save enough money in the long run with the lower current draw to make the switch worth while. These units are very new and Peak makes sure the technology is solid before switching to something so new.

Years ago I met with the regional sales representative of Wheelock and we discussed their product features and benefits. Back then we used quite a bit of their product and one of our concerns was the boxy square look when many other manufactures were going with a more modern look. The new LED units are still square although they are very small and the round units for ceiling mount are fine although there are other appliances that have a lower footprint and are thinner. As time goes by the designs will continue to change and we will re-evaluate which products we will use more of. Currently Peak Alarm used System sensor more than many of the other products, part of that has to do with price and part of the reason we use System Sensor is the lower current draw (mA)

Camera Systems are a deterrent

Camera systems will not stop vandalism and other criminal activity although it can deter it.

Having good lighting is also very important. In combination with an alarm system, cameras and lighting can and will deter criminal activity. Often when they run into an area with cameras they will move on to an area without cameras.

Peak Alarm has different levels of alarms systems and camera systems. We have entry level, medium level and high end systems. When you go with a camera system that costs less money sometimes you sacrifice quality. A $50 dollar camera is very different from a $400 dollar camera and a $400 dollar camera is different from a $1000 dollar camera that you can load analitics onto. When you research cameras AXIS cameras are top of the line. We have different methods of using camera systems at Peak Alarm.

We have systems that are dispatchers can monitor and determine if there is an actual issue that requires the police or not.

The good bad and the ugly of Peak Alarm

Take the time to do your research

Take the time to do your research

Lets start with the bad and the ugly and then go to the good last.

There is a court case from several years ago that comes up where Peak Alarm dispatched the Police to a school based on information from a person on site at the school. There was some misunderstood communications between the person on site, the dispatcher and the manager in Peak Alarm dispatch. As it turned out the police department charged Peak with reacting improperly to an alarm and there was a court case where Peak came out on top. Peak Alarm then sued the city based on principle and did not win that case. You can read the court documents although like all court documents it is boring reading. The owners of Peak Alarm supported their employees in the decisions that were made and spent money defending them. As you may know Salt Lake Police currently has a non response policy when it comes to alarms in Salt Lake City unless they are panic alarms or verified alarms.

There are mixed feelings about that because many people believe the very fact that a police car drives through a neighborhood rather than siting in some parking lot somewhere is a deterrent. When criminals see police cars they are less likely to be as active in those areas.

The police department says that too many of the alarms are false alarms and that is why they don’t want to waste their time responding to them when they have many other important duties. Some cities will respond when they are not on a higher priority call although Salt Lake City has decided not to.

When researching you will find some negative information on most companies, Internet reviews are a mixed bag since many companies pay for those reviews and sites to move them up on the search engines. Hits on keywords such as the TOP 10 Security Companies in Utah provide you with lists of companies that in some cases have thousands of complaints that have been filed with the Better Business Bureau and some of those companies are being sued in several States. Once you get a company name off a list such as that, check the BBB, check their reviews before purchasing. Many times the low price leaders have thousands of complaints that have been filed.

Peak Alarm is a large company and as such you will find that their policies are set and they may not be as flexible as some smaller companies. Peak requires that you sign an agreement before they will do any work. This agreement protects them from law suits and sometimes you can go with a smaller company and get lower labor rates although sometimes you compromise when it comes to those companies being insured, licensed and them being able to provide the serivces they advertise. Many trunk slammers as we refer to them have lower labor rates but often are not licensed or insured.

Peak Alarm is not an insurance company although they carry over and above the recommended insurance for the State of Utah.

Peak is large enough that often their wait times can be longer than other companies because of the work load.

Having said that, the smaller residential systems can be installed generally within one week. Many of the other companies can install those systems on the same day although some of those companies are the ones that have over 3000 complaints in the last 3 years when Peak Alarm only has had 3 complaints filed in the last three years on the BBB site. There is a reason for this. Two of the complaints were about billing and one about product. The President of Peak Alarm takes those complaints seriously and has recently made some changes with the company that does collections for Peak Alarm and there has been additional training in the accounting department.

Peak Alarm strives to get repeat business and keep customers happy although to get parts delivered or have changes made to your project everything must be in writing. This is one of the drawbacks to being a very large company, nothing is done with a handshake. Good and bad I guess.

The ugly as promised: I worked at a small company for 16 years before coming to Peak and now that I have been here for over a year I have seen the good things and the not so good things. The red tape is often hard to deal with. Where I was before, I did the estimating, the ordering, the delivery and sometimes the installation. That is not the case here at Peak. They have different departments and paperwork takes a bit longer to move through the chain of command. The owner still looks at each and every job and he still signs all the checks. After you turn your paperwork in to a salesperson, it goes to a secretary that checks it for errors and kicks it back if there are signature or initials missing. Then it goes to a manager for approval and then it gets scanned and sent to the different departments such as accounting, installation and the department that orders the parts. When the paperwork is filled out properly everything goes well, if something was left off for example like a camera mount then an order change has to go back through the same process so the time it takes to do this adds a bit of frustration for some people. When the manager that checks those documents is in a meeting sometimes the paperwork gets put off for a few hours until he can get to it. Almost everyone here at Peak Alarm is cross trained so if you get sick or die the process does not stop but keeps going. Large companies have a harder time being personal although Peak still does ok at many things when it comes to this but they are a business so they run like one.
