Don’t wait till you sign a contract to find out about the complaints.

Before you even get pricing from an Alarm Company do the following:

1. Check the Better Business Bureau www.bbb.org (Peak has zero complaints as of 01/06/18)

1A. Request to see their blue and white Utah DOPL license that each salesperson and tech are required to carry on their person. This means they have gone through an FBI check. Some companies hire people that are not licensed two such individuals came to my door and got reported. They just had their company ID and said the license was kept at the office.

2. Ask if they require a credit check before you buy. (Peak does not)

3. Ask if they will charge your visa just to come out and give you a bid or a site visit. (Larry Love at Peak will come out at no charge) They say they will apply it to the purchase when you buy.

4. Clarify their contract length because many will say one thing and have you sign something entirely different, because of this one of the Utah companies has been sued in 32 states.

5. Beware of a salesperson saying things like “Your alarm company is going out of business or we will update your equipment for free” Article from ADT about deceptive salespeople click here

6. Beware of companies that say “Installation is FREE” often they will wrap the charges in elsewhere. Peak Alarm starts cell monitoring at $40 per month with interactive many others will charge over $60 or $70 and obviously since you are paying an extra $30 per month after 36 months you have paid an additional $1000 dollars so they can afford to give you a few free items but understand you are paying much more than you think.

7. Many of these companies hire clean cut individuals just for the summer and they can earn quite a bit in a summer so they can return to school so often their knowledge is very limited.

Check licensing before you buy

2018 has come so fast and as we reflect on the equipment that Peak Alarm installs we see that Peak has been updating and researching the best quality equipment to install such as Cameras from FLIR and Hikvision, new addressable fire alarms systems from Mircom and encrypted alarm systems from DMP and Qolsys.

You will pay a bit more for encrypted alarm systems but it is totally worth it.

I have put videos on facebook and youtube showing the different options available by using our security systems.

Peak Alarm is a local company with an A+ rating with the BBB and no current complaints filed against them.

Peak Alarm owns their own central station that is UL listed

Peak Alarm is the only alarm company that also has a Central Station and a Guard/Patrol Service.

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.

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.

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
