Don’t wait till you sign a contract to find out about the complaints.

Before you even get pricing from an Alarm Company do the following:

1. Check the Better Business Bureau (Peak has zero complaints as of 01/06/18)

1A. Request to see their blue and white Utah DOPL license that each salesperson and tech are required to carry on their person. This means they have gone through an FBI check. Some companies hire people that are not licensed two such individuals came to my door and got reported. They just had their company ID and said the license was kept at the office.

2. Ask if they require a credit check before you buy. (Peak does not)

3. Ask if they will charge your visa just to come out and give you a bid or a site visit. (Larry Love at Peak will come out at no charge) They say they will apply it to the purchase when you buy.

4. Clarify their contract length because many will say one thing and have you sign something entirely different, because of this one of the Utah companies has been sued in 32 states.

5. Beware of a salesperson saying things like “Your alarm company is going out of business or we will update your equipment for free” Article from ADT about deceptive salespeople click here

6. Beware of companies that say “Installation is FREE” often they will wrap the charges in elsewhere. Peak Alarm starts cell monitoring at $40 per month with interactive many others will charge over $60 or $70 and obviously since you are paying an extra $30 per month after 36 months you have paid an additional $1000 dollars so they can afford to give you a few free items but understand you are paying much more than you think.

7. Many of these companies hire clean cut individuals just for the summer and they can earn quite a bit in a summer so they can return to school so often their knowledge is very limited.

Check licensing before you buy

Alarm companies with very low labor rates often come with one or more of the following issues:

Companies with more than 100 complaints (On the better business bureau there are many of these and some with thousands of complaints)This list is long so make sure you check before you buy.

Companies with complaints that they are not resolving.

Companies that are being sued in several states

Alarm companies that have changed their name to avoid ongoing legal issues

Companies that are not insured. Many smaller alarm companies charge less per hour but don’t pay their insurance.

Alarm Companies that have had their alarm or security licenses revoked, denied or are on administrative hold.Division of Occupational Licensing in Utah Official Site This list is very long so be prudent and check the DOPL web site before you invest with a business.

Companies that don’t have workers compensation insurance. Always ask for the proper insurance paperwork before you sign.

Companies that don’t pay their taxes

Companies that are not factory trained

Companies that don’t pay their car insurance policies

Peak Alarm is a company you can trust

Peak Alarm is insured, licensed, factory trained, only has 3 complaints in the last 3 years with the BBB, has a UL listed central Station, has been in business for over 47 years, is ranked in the top 100 alarm companies in the Nation by SDC magazine, provides local jobs to over 270 people, has 4 offices and Peak pays their taxes.

Peak Alarm has a higher labor rate than some of the smaller companies because they do things the right way. Peak Alarm has a fleet of vehicles that are clearly marked and the maintenance is kept up so our overhead is a bit higher than some smaller companies but many of the smaller companies cannot do the size and type of projects that Peak Alarm can do.

Peak Alarm is a company that works with the local Fire Marshals installing per NFPA 72 code because we care about public safety. One of the complaints listed on the web was because Peak Alarm would not bypass the fire marshal in order to help the customer save money. Peak cannot compromise on safety issues even if we lose a customers. We will try our best and do every thing we can to help save a customer money although safety is very important.

Peak Alarm is a business and if you don’t pay your bills Peak Alarm will try to collect on those bills. There are a few comments on the web dealing with this aspect of Peak Alarm because people did not pay and their accounts were sent to collections. Peak Alarm pays attention to customer concerns so we have changed the way we do collections and it is more professional now although we are still a business and expect to be paid when we provide services. The person making these complaints did not file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau because they knew that both sides of the issue would be investigated bringing out the truth.

Peak Alarm is not perfect although Peak is large enough to take on any size project, Peak has been in business long enough to be one of the most stable companies in the State and Peak is the only company with a full service UL listed Central Station, A full Guard and Patrol Division and a full service AV division.
