Why should I avoid a big box store camera system?

When a product is quite a bit less expensive you need to question why.

When a product is quite a bit less expensive you need to question why.

Mystery meat is one thing but mystery camera systems is another. Often what happens is someone will come to Peak Alarm for a real system after having purchased these cheap camera systems from a big box store.

Peak Alarm offers solutions to your camera needs at very reasonable prices with high quality equipment.

When you pay for a professional installation using quality equipment you will note that there is a very big difference. It is the same with cars. A luxury car is made quite differently from an entry level car built for the masses.

1. Many times the equipment will be questionable and when you do the math sometimes you end up getting a camera system for $50 or $100 dollars per camera. Think about it carefully, you do get what you pay for.

2. Much of the time the cable and the connectors are not universal but will only work with that particular system so my advice is to buy 2 or three of those systems so you have replacements because later on the factories do not build or support many of these low end systems when trying to get parts.

3. IP and Analog cameras are very different and with IP you get a much higher resolution. IP cameras can also have very similar specifications yet be very different. We have an awesome quality camera that is 2.8mm to 12mm Verifocal, IP66 weather rated, 3MP, vandal dome for $400 dollars yet we also offer an AXIS brand camera with very similar specifications for over $1000 each.

4. Do you want to be able to recognize people or identify them? Lower end cameras often leave much to be desired when you want to provide the police with a disk or USB stick. The differences between AXIS cameras and big box store cameras are like night and day.

5. Peak Alarm has over 46 years of experience and is licensed, insured and factory trained to install camera systems. I am an AXIS CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL and many other employees and techs here at Peak Alarm also have this same certification. In order to obtain this we took a week course and a grueling test which not everyone passed. Others had to study, review and then retake the test to pass it.

Have a clear picture of what you want

Get it done right not cheap

It might be free but most of the time the free systems work out costing much more than getting it done right.

Write down an outline of what you wish to accomplish. Have clear end results listed.

Have a plan drawn up with the device locations of where you think things should be installed

Hire a alarm consultant to go over your outline and plans with you to refine and make educated professional suggestions.

Be clear about your budget so you can stick to a system that will fit within your budget.

You don’t need motion detectors in every room unless you have a specific plan that requires this, you can have trap areas where motions are placed strategically, decide if glass break sensors would be appropriate for your application, consider water, temperature, air flow, humidity, panic buttons, door and window contacts and other sensors that may be a good fit for your installation. Don’t forget to put overhead door contacts on your OHD Overhead doors.

Consider separating the areas of your company so they can be armed and disarmed in different partitions. The shop could be disarmed say at 5AM but the shop employees could not disarm the office. The room where the accounting records is could be armed and disarmed separately as well.

Peak Alarm can help you with a design that would work for your circumstances. Each business is different so we can come out and do a no cost evaluation on the Wasatch front areas, Saint George, Boise, Idaho Falls, and Park City area and help you with the details.

Get online and check each and every company on the Better Business Bureau web site. Be sure to look up their history because several of the companies that compete against us have changed their name several times. Currently one of the companies that has done this has over 3499 complaints on the better business bureau web site. So be sure to check the different listings, check to see if they are BBB accredited or not, check their reviews. Peak Alarm has had 3 complaints filed in the last year compared to hundreds or thousands from our competitors. Don’t get caught listening to their low prices and fancy talk. Check them out first.

Official Better Business Bureau web site. Enter Zip then company names.

Steer clear of proprietary products that only one company in your state can provide, program, install and service.

Go for something in between the extremes. One extreme is a product that only one company can provide therefore you are locked into their higher labor rate and their higher parts rates. The other extreme is a product that every alarm dealer can install which leaves you open to companies that are not experienced, companies that may not do a professional installation.

Peak Alarm installs brands such as DMP, DSX, Bosch, Hochiki, Silent Knight, Firelite, AXIS and others. These products are not exclusive although all of these products require special factory training so the installers need to be a cut above the rest. Some of these products have limited their distribution to a few companies although you are more likely to get a professional installation yet there is still competition with pricing because you are not limited to just one company. DMP has I believe 5 Alarm dealers in Salt Lake City right now. DSX has 4 the last time I checked and Bosch had about 6 dealers.

Consider a professional camera installation rather than a system from a big box store that ends up costing you about $50 to $100 per camera. When you spend $100 on a camera that is exactly what you get is a hundred dollar camera. You spend seven times that on your cell phone and a security system should Merritt you taking the equipment seriously. There is a big difference between a 700 TVL analog camera and a 3MP camera. Learn the differences. There are cameras that are 3MP from an overseas company that cost 1/2 of what a Bosch 3MP camera or AXIS camera cost and there are reasons for that. Be careful when trying to cut corners on price because most of the time you will end up cutting on quality and features as well as warranty.

Peak Alarm has been in business for over 46 years, has an A+ rating with the BBB and has their own local UL listed Central Station, their own AV division, their own Alarm division, their own Guard and Patrol division and offices in 5 cities in Utah and Idaho.

Big Box store camera systems

Commerical Camera Systems

Install camera systems to reduce theft

A customer has requested that we install a camera system because he has already installed 2 different big box camera systems that don’t work well.

I tell people that do this to buy 2 or 3 of the kits because many times cameras or the NVR will stop working and sometimes the cable connectors are not universal so you can’t find parts because they get them from Asia where they make so many and then move on to a different type of product and no longer support the older product.


Stay away from $50 dollar cameras because that is exactly what you get.

We have some very nice AXIS cameras that cost over $1000 dollars and they are well worth the money.

We also have some FLIR cameras that are $400 dollars (Then you would need to pay for the cable and installation) and these are IP cameras 3MP with 2.8-12mm lens and IP66 rated for the weather so they are a much better bet than a $50 dollar camera.

Think about it, you are going to pay the same installation and wire cost but if you put in poor quality cameras you will need to pay for installation twice and the camera twice as well.

Peak Alarm has been in business for over 46 years, has their own UL listed Central Monitoring Station, Installation Department, AV Division, Guard and Patrol Division and holds a current A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau. In the last 3 years Peak Alarm has only had 3 complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau. Better Business Bureau click here

You get what you pay for. When you have an event you want to be able to see the video and give it to the police. You want to be able to recognize people and cars and when you decide to go cheap often you can’t do either.
