Peak Alarm is not affiliated with ADT in any way. I listed some information as found on ADT web sites and I listed the sites below for comparison only. Customers should do their own research. Customers should always read their contracts/agreements whether with ADT, Peak Alarm or any other Alarm company and we encourage customers to search the BBB web site for feedback and ratings on all alarm companies before you buy.
A Customer told me that my monitoring price of $46.00 per month was higher than ADTs pricing. Pricing is relative, it depends what services you are getting. With this $46.00 per month my customer was getting MONITORING, CELLULAR INTERACTIVE (Elite Control) to be able to arm and disarm remotely and THERMOSTAT control. Peak Alarm is a local company and very competitive with other monitoring and security companies.
ADT charges as low as $36.99 for their essentials package and this is monitored over the phone line and with all packages there is a minimum monitoring agreement period. Most of them are 36 months. I did find one ADT site that said monitoring STARTING AS LOW AS $28.99 for traditional security. So read the fine print and make sure when getting quotes that you let them know exactly what you want. Monitoring over a landline (analog phone line) is different pricing than cellular. Interactive cannot be done using a landline.
Often they will tell you the system is free and sometimes there is an installation fee, an activation fee, cancellation fee and some companies also check your credit report as well. This package from ADT does not include interactive or cellular.
ADT PULSE Interactive starts at $49.99 yet on a recent web site I found it starting at $52.99 so make sure you double check. If you have cameras there are additional costs involved. For more information about the ADT plans here is a web site so you can compare and read the fine print. ADT packages web site

Understand that ADT is a very large company with several out of state central stations. Often you may have an ADT dealer come to do the installation or service your ADT account rather than ADT National.
I mentioned ADT because my customer used them to compare monitoring rates. So I always say, go to the source rather than guessing. ADT is a licensed and insured company. Understand that the dealers are affiliated with ADT but they are also licensed and insured separately.
Peak Alarm has 4 offices in Utah and Idaho. Peak Alarm has a full Guard/Patrol division, an AV Division, an Alarm Division and a local UL Listed Central Station which is also UL 2050 for high security installation monitoring.
