Why do security monitoring costs vary so much?

Peak Alarm, Peak Guard, Peak AV, Peak Central Station

1. Like cell phone plans you can pay more up front and less per month or less upfront and more per month.

2. There are many additional services such as late to close, early to open, web access, auto arm/disarm, elevator monitoring, schedules, lock control, lighting control, garage door control and the list goes on. Depending on which services you have the rates vary.

3. Analog phone line monitoring could be right around $26.00 dollars per month

4. Cell phone monitoring could be as low as $35.00 per month

5. Interactive monitoring where you can arm and disarm may be as low as $40 per month although if the price is a bit more you can lower the upfront costs.

6. There is no such thing as security companies giving you free equipment. If you lock into a 36 month agreement with Peak Alarm for $44.00 per month and you pay $99 upfront your overall costs add up to $1,683.00 over the 36 months. With a 60 month is it much more money.

7. A company that claims to give you free equipment normally has a 40 or 60 month agreement and normally the interactive starts at $49 per month so over the period of 60 months you are paying $2,940.00 even if it were at the same monitoring rate of $44 it would still be much more $2,640 so the FREE equipment is not really free.

8. Know that if you are getting rid of your landline (analog phone line) to upgrade to a cellular that will give you interactive arm and disarm often you will need to upgrade your alarm panel so the cost to do so varies from system to system depending on how old it is. Radio is another option for monitoring.

Peak Alarm is the only local alarm company in Utah that has their own Guard and Patrol division, Alarms and a UL listed Central Station for monitoring

As of this week Peak Alarm has only had one complaint made against it with the Better Business Bureau in the last 3 years

Monitoring pricing is like phone plans, it depends on how much you pay up front and the monthly will depend on the options you decide on.

Plans as low as $26 per month with monitoring over a phone line

Plans as low as $35 per month with a cellular unit so you don’t need phone lines

Plans as low as $40 per month with a cellular unit and the ability to arm and disarm remotely

Plans that are around $46 per month will allow Peak to subsidize a bit more of the equipment up front

Plans as low as $149 installed and $44 per month with Panel, Cell communicator, 1 motion and 3 door contacts

Same equipment as the above plan but $99 dollars installed and $46 per month (includes repair agreement with extended warranty)

Peak Alarm DOES NOT DO CREDIT CHECKS

Many companies start out with their interactive plans at $49 per month and that does not include the extended warranty plan in most cases.

There are many factors that come into play so let Larry come to your home or business and go over what your needs are. If the facility or home is larger than 3500 square feet you may need repeaters. If you have an existing system we can install a new BRAIN and monitor your existing hard wired points. Call Larry 801 428 1384

Peak Alarm among the best Monitoring rates in Utah

Call Larry Love at Peak Alarm for monitoring rates and pricing Larry@peakalarm.com (801) 428 1384 Peak Alarm web site ask for Larry Love

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 security system 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 security system. 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.

Peak Alarm has been in business for over 47 years and holds 5 different Certifications with UL for installation and monitoring. Peak Alarm has over 270 employees here in Utah and we have offices in Idaho and Southern Utah as well. Peak Alarm also has a full Guard and Patrol Division and an AV Division.

Many salesmen will give you a song and a dance but Larry can give you the actual information without the pressure.

Call the BBB Better Business Bureau and get the reviews and complaints before you buy. Peak has only had 3 complaints in the last 3 years compared with several of our competitors that have several thousand complaints each. Look them up, be sure to look up their DBA company names because several of our competitors have changed their names because of legal issues.

Normally Peak Alarm does not install FREE systems and that is one of the reasons we have stayed in business for over 46 years. You get what you pay for no ands ifs or buts about it.

Call Larry Love (801) 428 1384 Larry@PeakAlarm.com for Security System Pricing

PeakLink Security System for $99.00 dollars installed and $46.00 per month for 36 Months

System includes: Panel, Cellular Communicator, Keypad, Siren, 3 Door or Window Contacts, 1 Motion Detector and battery.

Pricing options:

Month to month without a long term contract:
$870 down and $46.00 per month (Can Cancel with 30 days notice)
12 Month agreement $645 down and $46.00 per month
24 Month agreement $340 down and $46.00 per month
36 Month agreement $99 down and $46.00 per month
48 Month agreement $75 down and $46.00 per month
60 Month agreement $49 down and $46.00 per month

36 Month agreement is our most popular since it is not a long term yet we can still subsidize most of the upfront costs of this size of a system.

Beware of those that tell you that you are getting free equipment because nothing is really free. Normally you would end up extending the amount of months or you would pay more on the monthly fee.

Breakdown of how the monitoring is billed for this deal we have on right now. (Prices valid for 30 days from 102715) Call for current deals


Monitoring………………….$24.00 per month
Smart phone control………….$15.00 per month
Repair agreement ……………$7.00 per month

Total would be ……………..$46.00 per month
and going with the repair agreement is prudent since we will come out and change the batteries and do service that is covered while you are paying the $7 per month. (It is $1 per point starting at a min of $7)

We can add Lighting Control, Lock Control, Thermostat control, Camera control and other things onto this same system to expand as needed.

When you live in an area where the police do not respond we can add ALARM RESPONSE for only $10.00 per month to your monthly. We have a full service Guard and Patrol Division that can respond in the Salt Lake area normally much faster than the police. Salt Lake has a non response policy so they will need someone to go to the home or business first to verify if a breakin has occurred and at that time we could call the police once the alarm has been determined to be a real alarm.

Peak Alarm Web Site

Please keep in mind that Peak Alarm is LOCAL, we have our own UL listed Central Station and Guard and Patrol Service.

Peak Alarm is not the low price leader although we get things done right and we take care of our customers and we have been doing so for over 46 years now.

Check all the companies you plan on using through Better Business Bureau since many of our competitors have had over 1000 complaints filed in the last 3 years and Peak has only had 3 and all of them are resolved.

There are several companies out there that will SHOW UP, SELL YOU THE SYSTEM, SELL THE MONITORING TO SOMEONE ELSE and you won’t be dealing with them any more. Some other companies will give you the low price and then you end up paying more per month because it is in the fine print.

Peak Alarm can work with you directly and we are here to stay. Call Larry and he can come out and help you with your home or business system.

Motions being damaged by your forklift?

Proper placement of your motion detectors is very important. They need to be placed in areas to trap intruders. Many companies want to place motions everywhere which is fine although proper placement will allow you to spend less money and have a more effective system. Peak Alarm has been in business for over 46 years, has an A+ rating with the better business bureau, has their own Guard and Patrol division, has their own UL listed Central Station and a full service AV division.

This motion is a tritech motion using three different methods to reduce false alarms. The fact that you can mount it high up and aim it three different directions is very important. Bosch has a 3 year warranty and is know for their quality.
