When I visit someones home to make recommendations of what equipment to reuse if any I look for a few things:

1. Are the smoke detectors over 10 years old, if so they should be replaced. This refers to smoke detectors tied to your alarm system. You should also replace your old 120 Volt smokes with 9 volt battery backup that are not tied to your alarm. You should have at least one smoke detector up and one down that is tied to the system so the authorities will be alerted when you are not there.

2. I look for hardwired zones because Peak Alarm can simply add a take over module and monitor existing hardwired zones. Depending on the size of your system we can use different brands to accomplish this.

3. I look for the brand and model numbers of the equipment. Often we can reuse wireless equipment by adding a module or special receiver which will save you money and we will simply put new batteries in those devices.

4. If you want to use your old loud siren we will need to add a relay and a power supply. It is quite simple but it does cost a bit more if you are going to one of the new systems that has the siren built in.

5. Consider water sensors, temp sensors if the temperature drops below 41 you can get notified before the pipes freeze and then cause a flood when they thaw. Monitoring for water and temperature is wise and can mitigate possible problems.

6. I look for existing wiring and how it was done.

7. Give me a call and I can come out and look at your system and make some recommendations. 801 428 1384 Larry@peakalarm.com

8. Monitoring typically costs between $45 and $55 dollars. When I bundle the system I can lower the overall costs of monitoring

Contact Larry and he will come out and help you decide which equipment to reuse.

Examples:

$30 Typical Monitoring cost
$10 Typical cellular monthly charge
$5 Typical interactive (Elite) to alarm remote arm and disarm using your cellular
$10 Typical charge for areas like Salt Lake or WVC to have a guard respond since police won’t. (Peak has their own guards/patrol)
$7 Starts at $7 and goes up depending on the size of the security system for a repair agreement extended warranty

When I do a bundle I can offer some discounts.

$25 Monitoring
$13 Interactive
$7 Repair agreement
$10 Alarm response

Total $55 per month for a home or business in Salt Lake with alarm response. Most companies start interactive at $49 without alarm response or a repair agreement. Without alarm response it would be $45

If you add camera control that adds $10 per month for 1-4 cameras for cameras that are part of the security system. When they are separate there is not a monthly fee.

Most companies use a third party central station or an out of state central station. Peak Alarm is local and employees over 300 people here in Utah and Idaho.

When you are a senior citizen we can lock your monitoring rate in for life so please call me about this. I don’t know of any company that does this in Salt Lake.

Be careful when looking at the PAID ads and websites because several of those companies have over 1000 complaints with the Better Business Bureau but because they paid for the ad now they are on the top 5 list or the top 10 list. Two of our competitors have over 3800 complaints that have been filed with the Better Business Bureau in the last 3 years. Online complaints tell a completely different story about companies. It is true every company including Peak Alarm will have some online complaints so look at the www.bbb.org web site to check out who has filed complaints with the Better Business Bureau because each and every one of those complaints gets investigated on both sides.

What matters most about Alarm Systems?

Get the same great service for monitoring but you will be even more secure

Get the same great service for monitoring but you will be even more secure

What services does Peak Alarm offer that most other alarm companies don’t offer?

Local UL listed Central Station that is owned by Peak Alarm (Most alarm companies contract a 3rd party Central Station) 24 hour 7 days a week
Locally owned Guard and Patrol – Peak Security – Peak Guards – Peak Patrol
Many alarm companies do not have licensed, factory trained techs and sales people. Every employee at Peak has been through the FBI background check.
Same day or next day service

What services does Peak Alarm offer that other alarm companies also offer?

Camera Systems, Access Control Systems, Fire Alarm Systems, Security/Intrusion Systems, Intercom, Nurse Call, PERS Systems

Peak has their own CAD department so we can help you with drawings for the fire marshal, annual inspections and service.

How do you purchase from Peak Alarm? Buy outright and sign a month to month agreement, Buy at a subsidized rate on a 36 month agreement or lease. The Lease will have higher monthly payments but a lower installation rate. Credit Card, Check or Cash.

Will you benefit from the systems we sell you? Camera systems can lower your liability and prevent accidents and be used as positive training aids. Cameras are also a deterrent to crime.

Fire Alarm systems are often to required and often your insurance company will give you a discount when you have a camera and burglary system.

Will our company keep our promises? Peak Alarm has been in business for over 47 years and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

Do you believe what Larry Love says and that Peak Alarm can deliver? Larry has been in this industry for over 20 years. Larry is more of an estimator than a salesman so you are not going to get a song and a dance but you will get valid and solid information and a fair price.

Is price the only factor when purchasing an alarm system? If it is then you have not done all the research. There are other companies that charge less but they don’t have as many technicians nor are they trained the same way. Some alarm companies charge less because they don’t have as high of an overhead but they can’t offer the same services either. Make sure you verify all the PROS and CONS before a purchase.

How will this come together? I will come out to your facility, lay out the pricing, explain the system, explain the options and let you decide. When you decide to move forward we will need signed paperwork and a deposit and then we can get the project scheduled and order equipment. We will need a dwg file for fire alarm systems so we can design the alarm system and turn in the drawings and submittals to the fire marshal.

What matters most about Alarm Systems?
Peak Alarm http://www.peakalarm.com Larry@peakalarm.com (801) 428 1384

What matters most is how we treat you, what protection we can provide and the services that will make your life easier and safe.

What’s interesting or alarming about alarms?

Just plain good

Just plain good

Often people think of alarm systems as alerting the police or the fire department of a burglar or of a fire alarm and that is true although now they do so much more. Here are a few examples of what current alarm systems can do for you. What type of services can Peak Alarm provide?

Commercial and Residential Services both for the homeowner, contractor or business owner. Design, installation, testing, training and monitoring. Phone line monitoring, Radio monitoring on our own frequency licensed by the FCC, Cellular monitoring & Internet monitoring

REMOTE GARAGE DOOR
1. Did you for get to shut your garage door or your not sure if you did? Open your alarm app check and go ahead and close the door from anywhere.

REMOTE CONTROL OF LIGHTING
2. Did you mean to turn on or turn off a light before you left the house? Do it from your app or have the lights randomly turn on and off when you are not there or even when you are there. Have them turn on when it gets dark and then shut off at 10PM or 11PM and turn back on at 5AM or 6AM and then turn off at 7AM

REMOTE THERMOSTATS & CAMERAS
3. When you are on vacation do you worry about the temperature in your home? If you have fish or other pets do you worry about them when you are gone?
Use the alarm app to adjust the temperature up or down or just check it. Use the app to look in on your pets or children with cameras that we can install in strategic places.

REMOTE VIDEO DOORBELL
4. Have you ever wanted to know who came to your door while you were away? If UPS or the Mail main were to come to your home while you were gone how cool would it be to answer the door with a video phone and even let them into the garage to leave a package and then shut the garage? Now you can with the SKYBELL or Alarm.com Video Bell. View and talk to those that come to your door. It alerts you and you can tell them you can’t come to the door and they will have no idea whether you are home or not.

HEAT SMOKE FREEZE, CO (Carbon Monoxide) and WATER SENSORS
5. If you are on vacation and it is winter your pilot light or the furnace may stop working. If the home drops below freezing the pipes could freeze and even cause expensive flooding when the thaw back out. Get heat, smoke, freeze and water sensors installed on your security system to alert you to these issues. This will end up saving you in the long run and they are not that expensive to have installed. If the basement floods it will cost you thousands of dollars. If the pipes freeze it can also cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars. If the house burns down you or your family could be hurt or killed. Often smoke will overcome people while they sleep so having smoke alarms that alert the fire department is much better than just the smokes that wake you up (which often don’t wake you up) CO sensors can also be added to your security system and having the smokes, heat, freeze, Co and water sensors does not cost you anything additional to monitor them per month. The installation will cost but the monthly monitoring will not. If you are paying for normal phone line monitoring you will need to add a cellular and elite control (interactive arm/disarm) to view your alarms over your smart phone. The world of alarms is changing.

LOCKS
6. Do you worry that if your children have lost 3 or 4 or more keys that someone might find one of them and get into your home or even their friends might? With a keyless entry lock your children or employees can access your home or business without keys. In a business we install prox card readers in homes we install a keyless entry lock which allows them to enter without a key and you can even unlock the home using one of these locks and your smart phone.

MOTIONS, GLASS BREAK, SHOCK, DOOR AND WINDOW STATUS SENSORS and Monitored 24 hour lockdown status to your gun rooms or datavaults.
7. Peak Alarm can install all types of security for your business or home including the above normal items associated with security or any of the ones we mentioned at first. Call Larry Love 801 428 1384 Larry@peakalarm.com http://www.peakalarm.com

ACCESS CONTROL FOR BUSINESS SITES
8. Do away with keys and have Peak Alarm install Peakedge access control. You can access the system online and add and delete users. When someone quits or is fired you cancel their card access instead of trying to get keys back from them or trying to rekey your facility.

CAMERAS
9. Peak Alarm can install several different types of camera systems. Call Larry and he can come by your facility or home to go over the different options. You can access these cameras using your smart phone to view your home, business or pets remotely from anywhere.

INTERCOM
10. Peak will install a weatherproof intercom and door release system on your home or business so you can talk to those that come to the door.

PERS
11. Peak can install a system in your home or business with medical alert buttons that you wear on your wrist, around your next or mounted buttons. These can be programed as panic buttons to call the police or medical buttons to alert a family member or alert emergency services. Yes this can be used if you have fallen down and cannot get up. The buttons are water resistant.

VIDOFIED
12. Peak Alarm offers special services for situations where you need our dispatchers to verify if the intruder is an animal or a human. This is great for empty buildings, car lots, tow lots and much more. Call Larry for more information.

Comparing alarm companies in Utah?

Do your research before buying

Do your research before buying

When comparing alarm companies do a bit of research first. Here are some points to help you get the best value:

Check the Better Business Bureau www.bbb.org before buying from any company. Often by overlooking this step you may get what you feel is a good deal and free equipment only to be put in a bind where you have to wait on hold 30 minutes just to be transferred to another department, given the run around and then cut off. If you don’t like buying services from a company that you can’t call easily it won’t be any better calling that same company for services they are not experts in.

Sort through local and National Companies carefully. Some of the National companies have thousands of complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau and they don’t care. They are making so much money they don’t care if people complain. Often local companies will strive to provide the best service so consider buying local. Peak Alarm has only had one complaint filed in the last 3 years with the Better Business Bureau. http://www.peakalarm.com Mountain Alarm (Fire Protection Services) has only had two complaints filed in the last 3 years. www.mountainalarm.com

Both of these companies are licensed, insured and local companies. Both of these companies have an incredible record with the Better Business Bureau. Now consider a company that has over 3700 complaints and ask yourself why they have that many. One such company is a large company and my manager told me that their company is 83 times as large as our company as far as accounts go. So I responded, shouldn’t they have just 83 complaints compared to our 1 then? No they have over 3700 complaints.

There are some companies that have DO IT YOURSELF INSTALLATION equipment and very low monitoring rates. Do the research on this as well because often computers will handle the calls or very low paid employees that are not even in the country. Sometimes the owner can follow the instructions and install a system like this just fine. Often the DO IT YOURSELF equipment is very limited as to the features, often these systems have a limit as to how many zones or points can be added. The systems normally cannot partition and sometimes not having the installation done by a professional really does cause problems. Weigh the PROS and the CONS and you decide.

Ask if the company has live monitoring and if the central station is UL listed?

PRICES FROM ONE OF THE MAIN DO IT YOURSELF SECURITY COMPANIES:

$199 Equipment costs (Cancel anytime) No live monitoring
$10 – $14.99 Monitoring per month ($10 less than local company with live operators)
$10 per month to add a camera (Same as local company)
$10 per month to add cellular backup (Same as local company)
There are YOUTUBE videos showing how this system can be defeated using simple equipment from an electronic store.

Cellular with a camera $35.00 per month

PRICES FROM A UL LISTED LOCAL COMPANY THAT DOES PROFESSIONAL LICENSED AND INSURED INSTALLATIONS IN UTAH

$99 Installation (Equipment is subsidized over a 36 month agreement) Live operators 24/7 with UL listed Central station
$25-32 Per month for monitoring (You get what you pay for)
$10 per month to add 1-4 cameras
$10 extra per month to add cellular backup
$5 extra per month to add elite control (interactive arm/disarm)
There are many other services available because of our live operators.
Peak Alarm Central Station is 5 Diamond Certified (Only just over 200 of the Central Stations in the US have this certification)
Peak Alarm is the only Local Utah company that also has a full Guard/Patrol Division and an AV Divsion
Peak Alarm is Licensed and Insured and all employees have passed the FBI background check

Cellular with a camera $15 dollars more although you get a local live person handing the situation and you get a local company that is licensed, insured and has over 47 years in the business.

Peak Alarm is the only local alarm company in Utah that has their own Guard and Patrol division, Alarms and a UL listed Central Station for monitoring

As of this week Peak Alarm has only had one complaint made against it with the Better Business Bureau in the last 3 years

Monitoring pricing is like phone plans, it depends on how much you pay up front and the monthly will depend on the options you decide on.

Plans as low as $26 per month with monitoring over a phone line

Plans as low as $35 per month with a cellular unit so you don’t need phone lines

Plans as low as $40 per month with a cellular unit and the ability to arm and disarm remotely

Plans that are around $46 per month will allow Peak to subsidize a bit more of the equipment up front

Plans as low as $149 installed and $44 per month with Panel, Cell communicator, 1 motion and 3 door contacts

Same equipment as the above plan but $99 dollars installed and $46 per month (includes repair agreement with extended warranty)

Peak Alarm DOES NOT DO CREDIT CHECKS

Many companies start out with their interactive plans at $49 per month and that does not include the extended warranty plan in most cases.

There are many factors that come into play so let Larry come to your home or business and go over what your needs are. If the facility or home is larger than 3500 square feet you may need repeaters. If you have an existing system we can install a new BRAIN and monitor your existing hard wired points. Call Larry 801 428 1384
