Llame Larry Love 801 428 1384 Larry@peakalarm.com Puedo contestar sus preguntas en espanol acerca de alarmas y monitoreo.

Cuando tienes una compañía de alarmas debes confiar en la gente. Peak Alarm es local y tiene mas de 47 años en este negocio. Podemos ayudar a comprarlo y podemos poner su sistema en espanol (Las teclas y panal de seguridad)

Que es el mejor precio de monitoreo?

Tenemos precios tan bajo como $27 dolares al mes usando su linea de telefono (analog)
Usando celular los precios empiezan en $39 al mes
Para tener control con su teléfono para armar y desarmar el precio es $44 al mes
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.

Peak Alarm web site ask for Larry Love

We encourage Electrical Contractors and General Contractors to send us plans and specifications so we can bid the projects that you need proposals on. If you have a link to a job and need a price please let us know. Sometimes we have time to get you the bid and sometimes we don’t. If you ask for a price the same day that it bids out the chances are low that we will be able to get you pricing.

Call Larry Love (801) 428 1384 Larry@peakalarm.com for pricing and he can come out and do a no cost site visit to make recommendations for your security, fire alarm, access control or cameras.

Peak Alarm bids out construction projects in Utah and Idaho. We have put some of the jobs that were are bidding online to encourage electrical contractors to call us for pricing. Peak is one of the largest alarm companies in Utah and the only alarm company that has their own local central station, AV Division, Guard /Patrol Division and their own UL Listed Central station.

Most projects have a specific list of manufactures listed in the specification so there are certain companies that can bid these project out and other companies that cannot. Often what occurs is that they will only flat spec products meaning that only one company in the State can bid the job. When they do this it is normally because the engineer is trying to match equipment with and existing fire alarm panel or they may want the same brand in all their facilities. The danger to this is having only one company that can bid so you are locked into their pricing for parts and labor. We call these products proprietary products.

Peak Alarm sends notification of those projects bidding but does not send out pricing to the contractors normally until the bid date and time. This helps prevent what we call price shopping where one contractor will call another subcontractor up to ask if they can bid the price that a specific company already gave them.

Peak Alarm strives to bid the projects to the Specifications and to the PLANS so we don’t have order changes later on. When equipment is not shown it makes this difficult because if the plan shows 22 smoke detectors and everyone bids 22 smoke detectors and then later on they add another 22 so the total is 44 this would change the price. This is the same when one flow switch and one tamper switch is shown on the plans and later they add 8 or 10 more monitor modules to monitor additional items. As a member of the Professional Estimators Society we were instructed to bid off the plans and use the counts listed on the plans so everyone is bidding the same equipment counts.

BID PROCESS:

OWNER HIRES ARCHITECT AND ENGINEERS TO DESIGN THE PROJECT
PLANS GO OUT TO GENERAL CONTRACTORS AND SUB CONTRACTORS TO BID THE PROJECT
LOW BIDDERS WIN THE JOB AND OFTEN LOW BID MAY NOT BE THE BEST BID SO REVIEWING THE BIDS IS AN IMPORTANT PROCESS
CONTRUCTION STARTS, SUBMITTALS ARE SENT IN AND PERMITS ARE APPLIED FOR AND THE PROJECT IS DONE AND INSPECTED

Utah UL Central Stations

It might be less expensive but most of the time the cheap systems work out costing much more than getting it done right by a UL listed company.

It might be less expensive but most of the time the cheap systems work out costing much more than getting it done right by a UL listed company.

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.

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 Mountain Alarm web site 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

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.
