New intrusion technology

Lowest priced items are often not the best option


Intrusion technology now allows you to remotely arm, disarm, control temperature, lighting, locks, overhead doors, set up special notifications for water, humidity sensors and much more.

Understanding the difference between residential and commercial systems is very important as well as the pros and cons when installing wireless verses hardwired systems.

Looking for the most inexpensive system is not prudent like looking for the cheapest equipment for mountain climbing or a good buy on a parachute. It is wise to look for a company that has the experience, is trained and has the appropriate staff to handle your project.

Peak is a locally family owned company. Peak Alarm has specialized sales people that have experience in the field that you need whether it be access control, cameras, fire alarm or intrusion.

Peak Alarm normally is not the lowest bidder although we have been in business since 1969, employee over 300 locals, have offices in Utah and Idaho, have a UL listed Central Station, we have a full service Guard and Patrol Division, we have a full service alarm division for commercial and residential installations.

Security companies in Utah are not equal

Not all companies are alike

You’ve heard that we should compare apples to apples rather than apples and oranges.

Company One – UL listed monitoring station – backup generators – extra personnel on duty – secure facility – backup equipment in case of failure
Company two operating with one piece of equipment and no backup and one person in the facility. They they have a heart attack signals are not sent on to authorities.

Company one – NO COMPLAINTS WITH THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU
Many other companies – OVER 1000 COMPLAINTS two of our competitors have over 3000 complaints (ASK WHY) – Sure you will find complaints on the internet for any company although looking at the BBB.org is important because they investigate both sides of the issues so a customer that knows they did not pay their bill and should have normally won’t file a complaint but will complain online.

Company one – Advertises with actual commercials and word of mouth advertising.
Many other companies pay to be on a top ten alarm company list so when the internet pulls up results also check the Better Business Bureau not just a top internet list that is paid for.

Company one in business since 1969 not using gimmicks of offering free equipment
Many other companies giving free equipment out like candy – Often they go out of business in a few years.

Company one puts together custom systems to meet your needs
Other companies don’t address individual needs as well because they are cookie cutter companies

Company one has actual people that you can talk with and personal service
Many other companies are very difficult to talk to after you have purchased the system and need anything else.

Utah Alarm Dealer makes drastic change

I took this picture in Guatemala, Isabal

With many alarm dealers having to deal with hackers and people being able to remotely disarm their systems because they are not encrypted. Peak Alarm decided to make a major product shift.

Peak Alarm has decided to begin selling QOLSYS Qolsys.com this product is unlike most other security systems and here is a quick list of some of their features:

S Lines Sensors are all Encrypted to prevent hacking
Blue Tooth Router built in
Built in Glass Break Sensor
Built in 5MP camera that takes a picture of who disarms and a 4 minute video when alarms occur
Z-Wave Plus
Software update
Blue Tooth disarming capable so you don’t even have to take out your phone to disarm
Flood sensors, temperature sensors, motion sensors door status switches and much more

Most other alarm panels do not have the blue tooth built in, most other alarm panels do not have encryption. (Peak Alarm offers DMP which is encrypted for higher end commerical projects www.dmp.com

Making this switch means that the basic system will cost a bit more but keep in mind you get what you pay for.

Qolsys did not take an alarm panel and convert it to a smart tablet but they took a tablet and made it into an alarm panel. This system is more robust than other systems, has a much greater capasity in all respects as far as user codes and how many points you can add to the system.

When to reuse existing alarm equipment

There is a reaction for every action

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. Keep in mind that if you reuse existing wireless devices most of the time they are not encrypted. When we install a new Qolsys or DMP system that is wireless you will have the peace of mind that the encryption will make it so hackers cannot defeat your system from out front of your home. www.qolsys.com

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.

Smoke Detectors that send signals

Normal 120 Volt smoke detectors with battery backup do not send signals to a central station that dispatches the authorities. System smoke detectors will notify the central station rather than just making noise. Normally the smoke detectors are set up just to wake you up. Sometimes people do not wake up but are overcome by smoke and they die. I like designing a security system in a home with at least one smoke detector up and one down that is tied to the system and will send signals. If you are on vacation these detectors will also notify dispatch who in turn can call the fire department.
