MONITORING RATES FOR OUR UL LISTED CENTRAL STATION vary with each plan and the equipment that is used. Some common rates so you can compare are as follows although you need to understand if you have a system with 20 zones or a system with 100 zones the time to test those points or zones will vary as will the pricing. Also if we use a Radio or High Supervision Cellular to monitor the prices are different than a normal cellular or phone lines. Rates are subject to change so call Larry for current a current price quote that will be customized for your situation
MONITORING PRICING FOR FIRE ALARM WITH AES RADIO IS $340.00 installation cost and $40.00 per month for 36 months
MONITORING PRICING FOR FIRE ALARM USING HIGH SUPERVISION CELLULAR IS $144.00 installed and $47.00 per month for 36 months
MONTHLY MONITORING PRICING FOR A SECURITY PANEL USING A CELLULAR COMMUNICATOR IS ZERO INSTALLATION AND $35 per month for 36 months
MONITORING FOR A SECURITY PANEL OR A FIRE PANEL USING ANALOG PHONELINES IS ZERO TAKEOVER AND $32.00 per month. Discounts for multiple accounts can be given and takeover fees depend on the exact number of points and if you have over 30 points that need to be tested call Larry and he can visit your site and get you exact pricing on your facility.
ADDING REMOTE ARM/DISARM or what we call ELITE Control or INTERACTIVE adds $5 dollars per month. This only works with Cellular service so if you have Radio and you want Elite control we would need to switch to cellular. If you have Standard Cellular with out Elite that is normally $10 per month so having both adds $15 per month. Additional services such as controlling your lighting adds $4 per month, controlling your thermostat adds $4 per month, adding remote control to your house locks also adds $4 per month. We have package deals that have several of these items together to save you money. Adding cameras to your securitysystem adds $10 per month to the monitoring fee for the first 4 cameras. These cameras can be viewed using the app that also arms and disarms your securitysystem. We have other options for cameras that do not have monthly fees so just ask about cameras and we can come out and go over your questions with you.
ADDING A REPAIR AGREEMENT IS A GOOD IDEA SO YOU DON’T have to pay hourly rates which could be very expensive. This monthly fee will vary depending on how many points you have on your system. A basic system repair agreement only adds $7 per month to the monthly fee.
ALARM RESPONSE is only $10 per month and provides you with Guard response in covered areas up to four times during the year for no additional cost on alarms. That is $120.00 a year and up to 4 Patrol Responses which only comes to $30 per guard response compared with $75 per guard response on a normal dispatch.
KEY RESPONSE IS ONLY $20 per month. This means we will respond to your home or business up to 4 times during the year and we will enter the premise and check the property rather than just driving around it. If it is evident that there was or is a break in Peak Alarm will call the police.
UL2050 High Security Services add things such as Supervised Schedules, openings and closing and UL Certificate to the agreement. Call Larry for a no cost estimate for rates on a UL2050 high security installation or monitoring.
Many of our competitors have higher pricing after all is added into the pricing. Make sure you are comparing apples to apples before you make a decision on your monitoring. Also it is prudent to call or look up the www.bbb.org Better Business Bureau since many of our competitors have hundreds or thousands of complaints and Peak Alarm has only had 3 complaints in the last 3 years.
Peak Alarm offers 60 month agreements, 48 month agreements, 36 month, 24 month, 12 month or even month to month agreements depending on your needs. When you go with a higher down payment we can lower the length of the agreement, when you want a lower down payment or installation price we can adjust the monthly amount as well as the length of the agreement. The examples above are done using a 36 month agreement. We have pricing for all of the above plans figured up using the different agreement lengths. An example of this would be that you do not want a long term contract because you may only be in the building for 2 years so security monitoring using a standard cell phone communicator on a 2 year agreement would be $185 down and $35 per month or $75 down and $46 dollars per month depending on the plan you would like.
The benefit of using a RADIO is that the monthly charge for two phonelines often exceeds $100 per month for the phone service, the cost of high supervision cellular costs more than radio and if technology changes on the cellular as it just did you may need to purchase new equipment. Example: 2G cellular will no longer be supported by the cell towers so you need to upgrade to 3 or 4G. The Radio is maintained by Peak Alarm and remains property of Peak so if the radio stops working Peak comes out and fixes it.
Peak Alarm holds the STATE MONITORING CONTRACT so if you are a State facility you can take advantage of lower monitoring rates through the State Contract.
