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.

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.
