Security companies in Utah are not equal

Not all companies are alike

You’ve heard that we should compare apples to apples rather than apples and oranges.

Company One – UL listed monitoring station – backup generators – extra personnel on duty – secure facility – backup equipment in case of failure
Company two operating with one piece of equipment and no backup and one person in the facility. They they have a heart attack signals are not sent on to authorities.

Company one – NO COMPLAINTS WITH THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU
Many other companies – OVER 1000 COMPLAINTS two of our competitors have over 3000 complaints (ASK WHY) – Sure you will find complaints on the internet for any company although looking at the BBB.org is important because they investigate both sides of the issues so a customer that knows they did not pay their bill and should have normally won’t file a complaint but will complain online.

Company one – Advertises with actual commercials and word of mouth advertising.
Many other companies pay to be on a top ten alarm company list so when the internet pulls up results also check the Better Business Bureau not just a top internet list that is paid for.

Company one in business since 1969 not using gimmicks of offering free equipment
Many other companies giving free equipment out like candy – Often they go out of business in a few years.

Company one puts together custom systems to meet your needs
Other companies don’t address individual needs as well because they are cookie cutter companies

Company one has actual people that you can talk with and personal service
Many other companies are very difficult to talk to after you have purchased the system and need anything else.

2G cellular for security going away

Peak Alarm web site

Don't live in the past get your 2g unit replaced

Don’t live in the past get your 2g unit replaced

Public service information from AT&T posted by Peak Alarm’s commercial sales team and Larry Love in regards to 2g being taken down. This means if your cellular unit on your security system is 2g then it will stop functioning soon and it does not mean anything is wrong with your unit it is just that AT&T will no longer support the older technology.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding 2G Sunset
1. Why are you shutting down your 2G network?
Mobile data traffic in the United States grew by 75,000 percent over a six-year span, from 2001-2006. In the six years that followed, mobile data traffic on AT&T’s national wireless network increased more than 50,000 percent (from January 2007 through December 2013). Reallocating capacity to our more advanced wireless networks will help more of our customers have a better experience.

2. The network turn down is not until 2017. Why are you sending me reminders now?
We believe it’s important for us to be transparent about our plans for the 2G network. Our spectrum reallocation efforts have already begun and will continue between now and January 1, 2017. We may turn down some markets entirely before 2017. We’re taking advantage of the long lead time to work proactively with customers who are using our 2G network today to manage their migration to the more advanced networks.

3. You say that you’ll work closely with customers to manage the migration process. How will customers be alerted of the transition and how will you ensure it’s a smooth process?
We’re committed to working closely with customers to make this process as easy as possible. In cases where we’re turning down AT&T’s owned and operated 2G network, we’ll continue to communicate specific details well in advance of turning down the network and work hard to ensure mobile communication needs are met throughout the process.

4. Why can’t AT&T allocate a small portion of its spectrum to accommodate subscribers who don’t want to transition?
Maintaining our 2G network to serve a small number of customers wouldn’t be an efficient use of our spectrum, which can be better used to support our 3G and 4G networks. By making this transition, M2M customers will be able to enhance their applications and solutions with new features (i.e. video cameras for real-time streaming/records for alarm solutions, driver dash cameras for fleet trucks, etc.) because of the higher speeds of the upgraded network, allowing them to better serve their customers and employees. This would not be possible on the 2G network.

5. Is this one way that you’re addressing the issue of limited spectrum?
We are happy with how our network is performing, but we are always looking to augment our spectrum position. In fact, we closed more than 60 spectrum deals in 2013 alone. Aside from the spectrum acquisitions, we’ve invested more than $140 billion of capital and spectrum acquisitions in our wireline and wireless networks in the last six years, and we plan to invest approximately $21 billion this year. We are getting better spectral efficiency with our LTE network, and we’re on track to begin the WCS build as planned in 2015.

6. So do you have plans to turn down your 3G network to put spectrum that’s currently used for 3G
to 4G service?
We currently have no plans to turn down our 3G network.

7. Will customers experience issues with the network during this transition?
We anticipate a smooth transition. It’s unlikely but possible that some 2G customers could see minor
temporary service issues while we’re completing this work. We’ll work hard to ensure they continue to
receive a good network experience.

8. For customers who do transition to a more advanced 3G/4G device, will their coverage be
comparable to what they have on the 2G network today?
We anticipate coverage will be comparable to the coverage they received from our 2G network. Our 3G
network has virtually nationwide coverage, and we have the nation’s largest 4G network, currently
covering nearly 280 million people. A 4G device will operate on the 3G network when customers are not
in areas with 4G coverage.

9. Is it true that your competitors will continue to offer service on their 2G network? Why is AT&T
shutting down its 2G network so early?
We can’t speak to our competitors’ plans. Adding spectrum and managing our existing spectrum for its
most efficient use provides customers with the best wireless experience. This is a top priority for AT&T.

10. How will AT&T help Connected Device and M2M customers adapt to a post-2G world?
AT&T is committed to providing clear, advance notice and communications about our 2G migration and
to working closely with our customers to manage the transition. Ultimately, customers are responsible
for planning hardware upgrades in a reasonable timeframe prior to planned network shut downs, but
AT&T has developed programs, such as our Mobile Broadband Accelerator program, to promote
adoption of newer 3G and 4G technologies.

11. Will AT&T continue to certify 2G modules and devices?
No. AT&T has discontinued certification of 2G hardware. In order to support key customers, AT&T
provides maintenance release code for EDO and MVNO devices ONLY when a specific need requires
updated code.

12. I’ve heard that not all devices using GSM are traditional devices, some are automated machines. How are these devices impacted?
In addition to traditional handsets, AT&T supports machine-to-machine (M2M) communications for a variety of connected devices, including those found in cars, power meters, shipping containers, wind turbines, vending machines and more. Some of these devices run on 2G/GSM (GPRS/EDGE) technology and will be impacted by our 2G network transition plan.

13. How does this affect my in-building solution?
Service for in-building solutions that are 2G based will be discontinued with this technology sunset.

14. Your competitors have made public statements that they intend to support their respective 2G technologies until at least 2020. Why isn’t AT&T?
As devices rapidly upgrade from 2G to newer technologies, carriers are shifting spectrum and other network resources to support this change, while also bringing new spectrum into service for 3G and 4G. AT&T, like all other companies, must make a business decision about how to allocate limited resources given the explosion of the mobile Internet.

15. When will AT&T mandate that our 2G resellers/M2M clients stop activating and/or re-activating 2G devices?
AT&T is working closely with M2M customers to ensure that 2G activations are discontinued as soon as possible.

16. Will AT&T help me with the development cost of my business’ migration?
Customers are responsible for planning hardware upgrades in a reasonable timeframe prior to planned network shut downs, but AT&T has developed initiatives, such as our Mobile Broadband Accelerator program, to promote adoption of newer 3G and 4G technologies.

17. How does this affect my company’s service agreement, will ETFs apply if I cancel service due to the 2G migration?
A new business mobility contract is not required, however if you upgrade your individual lines of service — now or at a later date — you may need to make a new line commitment term and may be subject to ETF per the conditions in your business mobility agreement.

18. How will enterprise customers headquartered in one market be notified about the sunset of their 2G subscribers in another market?
We’re committed to working closely with customers to make this process as easy as possible. In cases where we’re turning down AT&T’s owned and operated 2G network, we’ll communicate with specific details regarding impacted subscribers well in advance of turning down the network and work hard to ensure their mobile communications needs are met throughout the process.

DMP installed by top security companies in Utah

To compare apples to apples both systems need to have the same warranty and features.

To compare apples to apples both systems need to have the same warranty and features.

DMP is UL listed for Fire Alarm, upto 16 doors of access control and high end security.

Recently a customer in a large building purchased a security system from our competitor and then the customer wanted to arm and disarm different areas of the building. (Partitions) and the panel they purchased could not do that.

They also need to add over 100 codes and the panel they purchased would only allow up to 32 codes

DMP will allow up to 10,000 codes and up to 32 areas or partitions and you can install 16 supervised keypads.

Some of our competitors are being sued in several states, it is prudent to also check when a company installs your Security System if the technicians are licensed by DOPL (White and Blue License) and by law they need to carry it on their person. Many security companies hire young people to knock on doors and they are not even licensed. The DOPL license insures that the security salesman has been through a FBI background check. Often companies that have a lower overhead also skip important things such as insurance, taxes and benefits for their employees. Peak Alarm offers health insurance and also pays all federal and state taxes according to the law.

The highly trained sales team can help you design a security or fire alarm system for your home or business.

Call Larry Love at 801 428 1384 for more information about DMP and high end security. Peak Alarm is not always the low bidder although we get the job done right.

It is prudent to PREWIRE while in stick phase

Trust Peak Alarm for all your security & fire alarm needs.

Trust Peak Alarm for all your security & fire alarm needs.

RE: Prewire for Security System (Generic information for any security system)
INSTALLING CABLE/WIRE BEFORE THE SHEETROCK IS DONE IS A PRUDENT MOVE
The cable/wire that is recommended for small installations is 22 gauge 4 conductor stranded cable and if it is a larger project then 18 gauge 4 conductor stranded cable. (Not shielded) This will work for most hardwired systems. Two of the wires are for power and two in order to activate the alarm. Powered devices are motions, glass breaks, smoke detectors etc…

Whoever does the prewire should label each end of each cable clearly with a zone number that corresponds with a MAP or use a description such as FRONT LOBBY, REAR DOOR etc….Care should be taken so as not to damage the wire when installing it because the outer coating on security wire is much thinner than THHN. (We can do the prewire or you can.)

Most residential and small commercial projects will have wire installed from each device to where the panel will be installed. (HOMERUNS) unless it is a large system that has an addressable loop. If it is addressable then one circuit can be installed going around the entire building. Monitor modules cost from $40 to $65 depending on the system. So you will need to determine if installing 20 mm will save you wire and labor rather than home running all zones.

The panel should be in a spot where power can be ran to the panel as well as phone lines although most systems we install today will use cellular or radio so they won’t be susceptible to phone lines getting cut. This will be a decision the owner will need to be involved with.

The advantage of having a hardwired system is that you will not have to change out batteries for the devices such as motions, smoke detectors or glass break sensors.

Consider installing wire for MOTIONS in Main areas, Smoke detectors, Glass Break Sensors, Low Temperature sensors if the building drops below 40 degrees F, water sensors in areas where flooding could occur and if it is possible you may want cameras installed then now is the time to install the cable. Airflow and humidity sensors can also be installed in the server rooms.

The older cameras (analog) used RG59 with 18g2c cable although the newer IP cameras will normally be POE (powered over Ethernet) using CAT5 or CAT6 but there are limits on distances powering them over the Ethernet without extra power.
