When to reuse existing alarm equipment

There is a reaction for every action

LLame Larry y el puede ayudarles en tu idioma tambien

When I visit someones home to make recommendations of what equipment to reuse if any I look for a few things:

1. Are the smoke detectors over 10 years old, if so they should be replaced. This refers to smoke detectors tied to your alarm system. You should also replace your old 120 Volt smokes with 9 volt battery backup that are not tied to your alarm. You should have at least one smoke detector up and one down that is tied to the system so the authorities will be alerted when you are not there.

2. I look for hardwired zones because Peak Alarm can simply add a take over module and monitor existing hardwired zones. Depending on the size of your system we can use different brands to accomplish this.

3. I look for the brand and model numbers of the equipment. Often we can reuse wireless equipment by adding a module or special receiver which will save you money and we will simply put new batteries in those devices.

4. If you want to use your old loud siren we will need to add a relay and a power supply. It is quite simple but it does cost a bit more if you are going to one of the new systems that has the siren built in.

5. Consider water sensors, temp sensors if the temperature drops below 41 you can get notified before the pipes freeze and then cause a flood when they thaw. Monitoring for water and temperature is wise and can mitigate possible problems.

6. I look for existing wiring and how it was done.

7. Give me a call and I can come out and look at your system and make some recommendations. 801 428 1384 Larry@peakalarm.com

8. Monitoring typically costs between $45 and $55 dollars. When I bundle the system I can lower the overall costs of monitoring

Contact Larry and he will come out and help you decide which equipment to reuse.

Examples:

$30 Typical Monitoring cost
$10 Typical cellular monthly charge
$5 Typical interactive (Elite) to alarm remote arm and disarm using your cellular
$10 Typical charge for areas like Salt Lake or WVC to have a guard respond since police won’t. (Peak has their own guards/patrol)
$7 Starts at $7 and goes up depending on the size of the security system for a repair agreement extended warranty

When I do a bundle I can offer some discounts.

$25 Monitoring
$13 Interactive
$7 Repair agreement
$10 Alarm response

Total $55 per month for a home or business in Salt Lake with alarm response. Most companies start interactive at $49 without alarm response or a repair agreement. Without alarm response it would be $45

If you add camera control that adds $10 per month for 1-4 cameras for cameras that are part of the security system. When they are separate there is not a monthly fee.

Most companies use a third party central station or an out of state central station. Peak Alarm is local and employees over 300 people here in Utah and Idaho.

When you are a senior citizen we can lock your monitoring rate in for life so please call me about this. I don’t know of any company that does this in Salt Lake.

So your installing a new security system beware?

Security in Utah

Security Systems in Utah

Before going with any security company go through a simple checklist:

1. Check the Better Business Bureau for how many complaints, the type of complaints and reviews. www.bbb.org
Two of the large competitors have over 3000 complaints that have been filed.

2. If the security system is internet based know that if the power goes out so will your security system.
Sure the system is less expensive but ask yourself why is it less money?

3. If you only have a phone line connected and the phone line is cut no signals will be sent. (Install AES Radio or Cellular)
Having both phone and cell is fine but phone only or internet only is not as secure.

4. Ask yourself if you would buy Chinese food from your plumber. If not then buy security from a security company not a cable company.
We specialize in security, we don’t do other things outside of that scope. Look online and find out what type of service others have gotten from that company. When you buy cable TV or Dish often it is very easy to buy but how good is the customer service after you have purchased? Are they a local company?

5. Is their central station UL listed and 5 Diamond Certified? Why should you care? It makes a difference.
If you are dealing with a local company they know the area and they are easier to deal with.

6. Does the alarm company you are going with have a Guard/Patrol service inhouse? If you are in SLC know that Police do not respond to normal alarms.

A. Peak Alarm has only had one complaint in the last 3 years.
B. Peak Can install an AES Radio or Cellular communicator with battery backup in case the power goes out.
C. Peak is a local company that has been in business for over 48 years
D. Peak Alarm has a full service Guard/Patrol, UL listed central Station that is 5 Diamond certified
E. Peak Alarm is a local with all employees having been through an extensive FBI background check.

Call Larry Love at Peak Alarm (801) 428 1384 Larry@peakalarm.com http://www.peakalarm.com

When you need details about alarm systems don’t go with a cookie cutter business that does mostly wireless systems. Peak Alarm does over 50% of it’s business in the commercial field and we also do quite a bit of high end residential. We have deals for quick installations and low monitoring rates although I can get you details on high end security systems with a design team and experts that can help you with your design for a UL2050 installation or a higher end project with quality products from DMP, Bosch and other manufacturers.

Call Larry Love to set up an appointment for your detailed no cost site visit. We do it right and Peak is the only alarm company in Utah that has a full service guard and patrol division and a UL listed Central Station. Other companies third party out either the guards or the monitoring and Peak Alarm keeps it all in house.

What matters most about Alarm Systems?

Get the same great service for monitoring but you will be even more secure

Get the same great service for monitoring but you will be even more secure

Local UL listed Central Station that is owned by Peak Alarm (Most alarm companies contract a 3rd party Central Station) 24 hour 7 days a week
Locally owned Guard and Patrol – Peak Security – Peak Guards – Peak Patrol
Many alarm companies do not have licensed, factory trained techs and sales people. Every employee at Peak has been through the FBI background check.
Same day or next day service

What services does Peak Alarm offer that other alarm companies also offer?

Camera Systems, Access Control Systems, Fire Alarm Systems, Security/Intrusion Systems, Intercom, Nurse Call, PERS Systems

How do you purchase from Peak Alarm? Buy outright and sign a month to month agreement, Buy at a subsidized rate on a 36 month agreement or lease. The Lease will have higher monthly payments but a lower installation rate. Credit Card, Check or Cash.

Will you benefit from the systems we sell you? Camera systems can lower your liability and prevent accidents and be used as positive training aids. Cameras are also a deterrent to crime.

Fire Alarm systems are often to required and often your insurance company will give you a discount when you have a camera and burglary system.

Will our company keep our promises? Peak Alarm has been in business for over 47 years and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

Is price the only factor when purchasing an alarm system? If it is then you have not done all the research. There are other companies that charge less but they don’t have as many technicians nor are they trained the same way. Some alarm companies charge less because they don’t have as high of an overhead but they can’t offer the same services either. Make sure you verify all the PROS and CONS before a purchase.

How will this come together? I will come out to your facility, lay out the pricing, explain the system, explain the options and let you decide. When you decide to move forward we will need signed paperwork and a deposit and then we can get the project scheduled and order equipment. We will need a dwg file for fire alarm systems so we can design the alarm system and turn in the drawings and submittals to the fire marshal.

What’s interesting or alarming about alarms?

Just plain good

Just plain good

Often people think of alarm systems as alerting the police or the fire department of a burglar or of a fire alarm and that is true although now they do so much more. Here are a few examples of what current alarm systems can do for you. What type of services can Peak Alarm provide?

Commercial and Residential Services both for the homeowner, contractor or business owner. Design, installation, testing, training and monitoring. Phone line monitoring, Radio monitoring on our own frequency licensed by the FCC, Cellular monitoring & Internet monitoring

REMOTE GARAGE DOOR
1. Did you for get to shut your garage door or your not sure if you did? Open your alarm app check and go ahead and close the door from anywhere.

REMOTE CONTROL OF LIGHTING
2. Did you mean to turn on or turn off a light before you left the house? Do it from your app or have the lights randomly turn on and off when you are not there or even when you are there. Have them turn on when it gets dark and then shut off at 10PM or 11PM and turn back on at 5AM or 6AM and then turn off at 7AM

REMOTE THERMOSTATS & CAMERAS
3. When you are on vacation do you worry about the temperature in your home? If you have fish or other pets do you worry about them when you are gone?
Use the alarm app to adjust the temperature up or down or just check it. Use the app to look in on your pets or children with cameras that we can install in strategic places.

REMOTE VIDEO DOORBELL
4. Have you ever wanted to know who came to your door while you were away? If UPS or the Mail main were to come to your home while you were gone how cool would it be to answer the door with a video phone and even let them into the garage to leave a package and then shut the garage? Now you can with the SKYBELL or Alarm.com Video Bell. View and talk to those that come to your door. It alerts you and you can tell them you can’t come to the door and they will have no idea whether you are home or not.

HEAT SMOKE FREEZE, CO (Carbon Monoxide) and WATER SENSORS
5. If you are on vacation and it is winter your pilot light or the furnace may stop working. If the home drops below freezing the pipes could freeze and even cause expensive flooding when the thaw back out. Get heat, smoke, freeze and water sensors installed on your security system to alert you to these issues. This will end up saving you in the long run and they are not that expensive to have installed. If the basement floods it will cost you thousands of dollars. If the pipes freeze it can also cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars. If the house burns down you or your family could be hurt or killed. Often smoke will overcome people while they sleep so having smoke alarms that alert the fire department is much better than just the smokes that wake you up (which often don’t wake you up) CO sensors can also be added to your security system and having the smokes, heat, freeze, Co and water sensors does not cost you anything additional to monitor them per month. The installation will cost but the monthly monitoring will not. If you are paying for normal phone line monitoring you will need to add a cellular and elite control (interactive arm/disarm) to view your alarms over your smart phone. The world of alarms is changing.

LOCKS
6. Do you worry that if your children have lost 3 or 4 or more keys that someone might find one of them and get into your home or even their friends might? With a keyless entry lock your children or employees can access your home or business without keys. In a business we install prox card readers in homes we install a keyless entry lock which allows them to enter without a key and you can even unlock the home using one of these locks and your smart phone.

MOTIONS, GLASS BREAK, SHOCK, DOOR AND WINDOW STATUS SENSORS and Monitored 24 hour lockdown status to your gun rooms or datavaults.
7. Peak Alarm can install all types of security for your business or home including the above normal items associated with security or any of the ones we mentioned at first. Call Larry Love 801 428 1384 Larry@peakalarm.com http://www.peakalarm.com

ACCESS CONTROL FOR BUSINESS SITES
8. Do away with keys and have Peak Alarm install Peakedge access control. You can access the system online and add and delete users. When someone quits or is fired you cancel their card access instead of trying to get keys back from them or trying to rekey your facility.

CAMERAS
9. Peak Alarm can install several different types of camera systems. Call Larry and he can come by your facility or home to go over the different options. You can access these cameras using your smart phone to view your home, business or pets remotely from anywhere.

INTERCOM
10. Peak will install a weatherproof intercom and door release system on your home or business so you can talk to those that come to the door.

PERS
11. Peak can install a system in your home or business with medical alert buttons that you wear on your wrist, around your next or mounted buttons. These can be programed as panic buttons to call the police or medical buttons to alert a family member or alert emergency services. Yes this can be used if you have fallen down and cannot get up. The buttons are water resistant.

VIDOFIED
12. Peak Alarm offers special services for situations where you need our dispatchers to verify if the intruder is an animal or a human. This is great for empty buildings, car lots, tow lots and much more. Call Larry for more information.
