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.

8 UL listed Central Stations for security fire monitoring in Utah

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.

1. Peak Alarm (BP2433) CPVX

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.

Call Larry Love (801) 428 1384 or email him at Larry@peakalarm.com for more information on this blog or for pricing for monitoring, Security, Fire Alarm, UL2050 installations, access control or camera systems.

CSAA 5 diamond information

Top Five Alarm Companies in Utah

Top alarm company lists are a tangled mess

Why should you be skeptical of TOP lists found online? ANSWER: Because many of those sites listing top 5 or top 10 are PAID SERVICES.

One of the sites gave a number #1 recommendation for an alarm company that has over 3800 complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau. Better Business Bureau web site www.bbb.org

Look up each and every company you intend on getting pricing from. Check for government actions against them, law suits and reviews. The above company that was rated number one has government actions pending against them. They are a very large company so when comparing them against local companies you need to understand that if they have a million accounts then they are 83 times larger than say Peak Alarm who only has 12,000 accounts. So that being the case this company should have 83 times the complaints right? That would mean they should have 83 complaints if they are on the same level as a local company that has one complaint. Peak Alarm has 1 complaint that has been filed with the www.bbb.org in the last 3 years and this number 1 listed alarm company has over 3800 complaints which is over 400% more complaints so take the fact that these top 5 or top 10 lists are paid services.

Real actual best TOP Alarm companies in Utah

Mountain Alarm -aka Fire Protection Services – 67 years in business – Local Company – Only 2 complaints in the last 3 years with the BBB
Peak Alarm – 48 years in business UL listed Local Central Station – Full Guard/Patrol services – Local Company – Only 1 complaint in the last 3 years
Alarm Control – aka Armed Alert – 48 years in business – Zero complaints in the last 3 years

Mountain Alarm Fire Protection Services web site
Peak Alarm web site ask for Larry Love
Alarm Control Armed Alert web site

The above companies are all licensed by the Utah Division of Occupational Licensing and they are also insured. All of the above companies do not concentrate on LICK and STICK products. (Just wireless) so they have extensive experience with commercial and residential products unlike many of the new companies that just do wireless. The technicians understand the industry and all of these companies are qualified to do commercial fire alarm, intrusion, access control and cameras.

Now if we look at the companies that spend the most money on advertising and companies that have the most accounts then the list could change.

ADT Security Services ADT web site This company has 127 years in business.This is a licensed and insured company.

Now we do need to mention ADT which is a National Alarm company and now they own Protection One. ADT Security Services on the Better Business Bureau Web site has over ________complaints that have been filed in the last 3 years, granted they are a very large company. ____% of their reviews on the BBB are negative although many people do have good experiences with this company. Now that they own Protection one we will see if they will be doing anything different. Protection one was in business 29 years before they were purchased by ADT. Protection one only has about 16% of the amount of complaints that ADT has. Rather than saying anything negative about this company I would encourage you to look at the better business bureau report for each company yourself. Going with a national company sometimes has it advantages and other times when you go with a very large company it can be difficult to get to the proper department when you do need help. I dread calling my cable company for service for the same reason because I am normally on for over a hour just trying to talk to someone. Going with a local company can have advantages. If you are trying to sign up for service the lines are clear and the process is quick. If you are trying to get service after your system has been installed it is a bit different.

Vivint Smart Home Security has 18 years in business, before they were Vivint they were APX and also APEX and they also own other companies that are involved in their monitoring and their alarm installation keeping certain aspects of their business separate for legal reasons. Vivint Smart home web site This is a Utah company and they are a very large company. They do mostly wireless alarm systems and they have accounts all over the country and in Canada. They spend a great deal of money on advertising and they are a very successful company. Their business model seems to be working although time will tell if it will continue to function as the market seems to get saturated. They seem to be getting into other areas of business rather than just security systems. Vivint has had issues with unlicensed individuals working for them and they have paid their fines and it seems they are striving to do things as per the book now but with any company that large there seems to be challenges with having so many employees.

So when comparing companies there are companies that spend a great deal on advertising and there are companies that have more accounts than other companies so they are in the TOP 10 or TOP 5 list in certain areas.

When a company tells you that the equipment is FREE read the fine print because when it is all said an done all alarm companies are in business to make money not to give stuff away. They will either make their money now or later but they will make money. They will either sign you up for a longer term, charge more now or raise your rates after a year or two. One of these companies was charging my mother over 70 per month for basic phone line monitoring with no interactive services and no other services and it took me quite a while on the line to get her account canceled even though she was out of contract. This basic service should cost around $25-30 per month.

Para tener garantía de reparaciones es otro $7 mas
Para tener control de cameras en su sistema es otro $10 mas
Para tener servicio de patrulla es solo $10 al mes ($120 al año ) Vas a tener 4 alarmas pagadas al año y podemos dar un descuento después de esto
Precios de negocio y casas es un poco diferente depende de sus necesidades.

Cuando una compañía dice que van a darme cosas gratis es verdad? Nada es gratis, ellos van a cobrarles hoy o manana o vas a pagar mas cada mes.

Hay que saber varias cosas antes de comprar:

1. Muchas companias de alarmas tienen mas de 1000 quejas en el sitio www.bbb.org y Peak Alarm solo tiene 2 en 3 anos.
2. Muchas compañías van a darte un contrato de 5 años. Peak casi siempre solo hace contractos de 3.
3. Casi todas las companias van a checar tu credito y Peak Alarm no va a chequear su credito.
4. Compañías que quieren instalarlo hoy no quieren que puedes cambiar tu decisión. Peak toma como una semana a menos que tienes prisa y puedes cambiar después de firmar entre de tres días.

Comparing Alarm Companies in Utah

deciding on an alarm company

I will list come criteria below and then some of the Alarm companies here in Utah for comparison. I have listed the DOPL web site below and you can look up current licensing information on that web site to verify a company’s current status. If there are any errors on this blog please email Larry@Peakalarm.com and I will correct those errors. This is not a complete list of companies. Low price is not the best criteria when looking for a solid professional alarm company.

Some of the listed companies concentrate on residential home security systems and other companies do more commercial security. Some of the companies do Fire Alarm and some don’t so trying to compare is difficult. Trying to find a company that meets all of your requirements is possible and some people like to buy or support local companies which is another factor to consider.

When you have updated information please contact Larry Love at Larry@peakalarm.com and he can update your company information on this post. If there is incorrect information please make us aware of this as well. On the below web site you can look up Burglar Alarm companies or Contract Security Companies (Guard/Patrol) and you will find many companies that have had their licenses expire, some have been revoked and just in the list of Contract Security Companies 20 of those licenses have been denied. Do your research before you buy or invest with an Alarm company or Security Company.

This is not a complete list of companies so you can see the complete licensed list on the site below.

As you can see from this small sample of just the A letters that many of the licenses get denied or revoked. I did not list the expired licenses which just on the first 4 pages were 16 of the approximate 44 companies which is 36%. There are several reasons that a company could be put on administrative hold and you would need to check with DOPL to verify individual companies. Also the citations that DOPL gives out our public record and can be viewed on their web site. DOPL is The Division of Occupational Licensing. To get a State of Utah license companies have to show that they have current insurance, training and they need to have a qualifying agent that works for them. You can look on the same web site to see a list of items you would need to apply as a burglar alarm company or company agent. There are tests that need to be passed and an application process that does take some time. Trying to wade through the hundreds of companies is a chore.

Very few of the above companies have the entire list of services. Some of the National Companies such as TYCO and ADT do have most of the services but their central stations are out of state but they are UL listed, licensed, factory trained and they do have insurance.

Many web site say TOP 10 companies or the best 5 or top 5 companies but what you need to understand is to be on those lists you simply need to pay to get on those lists. You don’t have a have a good BBB Better Business Bureau report or even be licensed. That is why I suggest you looking at a few other criteria other than a top ten list to decide which company to use.

In the above list there is a company that has been in business since 1969,is licensed, insured, factory trained, BBB accredited with an A+ rating,has a UL listed Local Central Station to monitor your security and fire accounts, has the UL2050 listings from UL for high security, has a full Guard and Patrol Division and offices in Idaho and Utah to serve you. Peak Alarm is a clear choice when you need to decide on a security company to do your commercial or residential installations.

Apollo now owns ADT and Protection one so essentially they are the same company but they are currently still operating as two different companies. Always check the better business bureau on the current and the older companies names before you purchase.

TYCO and Johnson Controls recently merged. Often the engineering specifications will list one of these installing companies as a brand name rather than an installer and the engineers list them as manufacturers. TYCO does manufacture products but those are separate from this business as far as I know.

Tyco and ADT were together and now that they are separate

Normally these companies purchase OEM products and put their name on them. Some other examples of Companies buying other companies:

Bosch bought Phillips and they also bought Detection Systems and Radionics several years ago.

Peak Alarm is not affiliated with ADT in any way. I listed some information as found on ADT web sites and I listed the sites below for comparison only. Customers should do their own research. Customers should always read their contracts/agreements whether with ADT, Peak Alarm or any other Alarm company and we encourage customers to search the BBB web site for feedback and ratings on all alarm companies before you buy.

A Customer told me that my monitoring price of $46.00 per month was higher than ADTs pricing. Pricing is relative, it depends what services you are getting. With this $46.00 per month my customer was getting MONITORING, CELLULAR INTERACTIVE (Elite Control) to be able to arm and disarm remotely and THERMOSTAT control. Peak Alarm is a local company and very competitive with other monitoring and security companies.

ADT charges as low as $36.99 for their essentials package and this is monitored over the phone line and with all packages there is a minimum monitoring agreement period. Most of them are 36 months. I did find one ADT site that said monitoring STARTING AS LOW AS $28.99 for traditional security. So read the fine print and make sure when getting quotes that you let them know exactly what you want. Monitoring over a landline (analog phone line) is different pricing than cellular. Interactive cannot be done using a landline.

Often they will tell you the system is free and sometimes there is an installation fee, an activation fee, cancellation fee and some companies also check your credit report as well. This package from ADT does not include interactive or cellular.

ADT PULSE Interactive starts at $49.99 yet on a recent web site I found it starting at $52.99 so make sure you double check. If you have cameras there are additional costs involved. For more information about the ADT plans here is a web site so you can compare and read the fine print. ADT packages web site

ADT main web site

Understand that ADT is a very large company with several out of state central stations. Often you may have an ADT dealer come to do the installation or service your ADT account rather than ADT National.

I mentioned ADT because my customer used them to compare monitoring rates. So I always say, go to the source rather than guessing. ADT is a licensed and insured company. Understand that the dealers are affiliated with ADT but they are also licensed and insured separately.
