Rated best all around Alarm Company in Utah

Factors for rating the best all around alarm company in Utah. If you find another company that meets all of these criteria please let me know and I will add them to this article. :

1. Years in service 47+ and family owned.

2.A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau http://www.bbb.org and this company only has 2 complaints on file within the last 2 years.

3. Ability to do any size project for Fire Alarm, Home Security, Business Alarms, Access Control, Intercoms and Cameras. This company has the capacity and 270 employees and can do any size project.

4. UL listed Central Station that is 5 Diamond certified with backup systems in place and backup central stations out of state. This company has more UL Certifications than any UL Central Station in Utah. Facts don’t lie. http://www.ul.com
5. This company owns their own Guard and Patrol division so they can respond to alarms and they have guard accounts and a large patrol division. All other alarm companies in the state of Utah hire this service out to a third party company.

6. This company also has an AV Division that is rated #19th in the National for what they do. This Audio Visual division can do home theater systems, security systems and very large theaters. They welcome you for tours at their Salt Lake City location.

7. This company has 4 offices to serve you in Salt Lake City, Saint George, Idaho Falls and Boise Idaho. They also have guard and patrol services in Park City and the adjacent areas.

8. This company does not charge a trip charge for accounts within 45 minutes of their offices. Many companies charge over $100 dollars per hour for trip charges so this alone would add over $200 more to a service call if you were 45 minutes away.

9. When reviewing the top ten lists or top five alarm company lists understand that you are viewing paid advertisements. Many of the companies that appear in these lists have over 100 complaints filed with the BBB and one top competitors has over 3000 filed in the last 2 years and they are currently being sued in several states.

10. This top rated company has a CAD department with the ability to do the drawings needed to submit to the city to get your permits and to get the job done professionally. Do your research before you hire an alarm company and I would be leery of the TOP rated companies on the PAID lists.

11. This company is licensed and insured and holds National Training certificates and has multiple NICET trained people. This company can provide you with the General Liability insurance required as well as Workers Compensation Insurance certificates and a very long list of projects that they have completed.

Who is this company that meets all the above criteria?

Many companies that are on the top ten or top five lists mainly concentrate on wireless systems because they are quick and easy. Peak Alarm does more commercial alarm systems than residential although it is just over 50% commercial and we can do the job right the first time.

The Company I would rate as number two: I did find another company that met many of the criteria but not all. The company I found does not have a Guard and Patrol division and they sold their central station although it did stay in the family so as I said they meet many of the criteria but not all. Mountain Alarm in Ogden is a great company and large enough to do most any project, they are insured,licensed and factory trained. They do both commercial and residential. Mountain Alarm has been in business since 1952, they also only have 2 complaints on file with the BBB in the last 2 years and they also have an A+ rating. When I was the Chairman of the Alarm Systems Board for Division of Occupational Licensing for the State of Utah Scott Sessions with Mountain Alarm was on the Board with me. Scott is a very professional businessman and a very positive and honest guy. So their you have it two recommendations for all around top rated Alarm Companies here in Utah.

Configuring Intrusion systems and Access Control

Example of how the Security and Access Control Systems are set up here at Peak Alarm

Here at Peak Alarm we the following configuration of systems that are set up independently of each other:

A.ACCESS CONTROL LIMITING ACCESS INTO THE BUILDING AND ALLOWING ACCESS OF CERTAIN PEOPLE INTO SPECIFIC AREAS ON TIME SCHEDULES.
B.SECURITY (INTRUSION) SYSTEMS LIMITING WHO CAN DISARM SPECIFIC AREAS DURNING SPECIFIC TIMES AND DAYS.
C.FIRE ALARM INCLUDING SMOKE DETECTION,SPRINKLER MONITORING,PULL STATIONS AND OTHER DETECTION 24/7
D.DIGITAL HIGH DEFINITION CAMERAS THAT ARE REMOTELY MONITORED AND RECORDED.
E.INTERCOM SYSTEMS

1. Peak Alarm has 2 large buildings that both have Fire Alarm, Access Control, Intrusion and Cameras.

2. Security Systems in both buildings are partitioned and manager codes can disarm anytime and other codes are limited to areas and specific times. An example of this is that Sales People cannot disarm the installation department, the shop or the accounting office but they can only disarm the sales offices. The installation department is similar that they can come in early but cannot disarm the other areas but only installation and the warehouse shop area. Some entry level or residential security systems do not have the ability to partition into areas and many of them are limited on how many users you can have so do some research before you buy so you can have a professional company do the installation the proper way.

3. Independent of the security system is the access control system. Prox cards that have been issued will allow you to open specific doors in specific areas but then you need a security code to disarm those areas. Some companies say “It would be easier if we could read our prox card and have it disarm the security system” and yes that would make things easier for you and for those trying to defeat your system if they found a prox card. It is best to keep these two systems separate. Peak Alarm can install a system that is integrated but if something happens to that system both your access control and your security system could be compromised.

4. In a separate 24 hour manned area Peak Alarm has a bank of cameras that monitored all four of our locations. This central station has bulletproof glass, a man trap. (An entry where you enter into a small hallway and cannot go out or in when one of the doors is open without approval from those inside.) The access, security, fire alarm and the cameras are monitored from this central station as well as thousands of our accounts. Peak Alarm has a large Guard Division both armed and unarmed to respond to alarms and customer concerns. One of our most valuable services is when we get temperature alarms from either vacation homes or homes of people that are on vacation. This can indicate that the heat has gone off and we can get a guard up there to help get it back on before the pipes freeze and or burst, this avoids expensive repairs to a home. Smoke Detectors are not normally tied to the security systems in most homes so we recommend that you install additional detection and we have smoke detectors that detect smoke, heat and also low temperatures.

5. Every night our main server is backed up in the other building and the server in the other building backs up to the one in the main building.

6. We have emergency generators that will kick on within seconds in a power failure and batteries that hold the power so there is no delay or loss of data in our central station. Our dispatchers will only know there has been a power outage because of an emergency light that lights up.

Clean your smoke detectors often

Don't forget to clean your smoke detectors

Don’t forget to clean your smoke detectors

Don’t forget to clean your smoke detectors often. Dust and Dirt will impede the way they work and you can extend the lifespan of the detectors by taking care of them.

Smoke detectors should be cleaned periodically in order to extend their lifespan.

Each manufacturer is different so check the instructions.

Some smoke detectors can be cleaned out with canned air, others with a vacuum or special vacuum attachment.

Some can be taken apart and you can actually clean the screens separately and the chamber.

Normally it is not prudent to use chemicals or to get them wet. If in doubt buy a new smoke detector because it is recommended to replace them every 10 years.
