The Positive Realist

Hi there! I’m a Commercial Fire & Security Alarm salesman  by day, and occasionally a funeral and wedding singer by night, I am also a County Delegate, CERT instructor for my city, Karate instructor, Musician, Artist, and this is my blog. I live in Salt Lake City and I am married to a beautiful Guatemalan women named Lizeth and we have 5 children, we have a great dog named Luna and she can  jump about 6 feet in the air while turning in a circle sideways which is quite impressive, Sushi is my favorite food.

 

I pride myself in being a reasonable person. We have been through quite the process with immigration to get my wife a visa and straighten out her paperwork and status so we know the challenges associated with the process.

 

I read quite a bit and I find that many authors write for specific audiences and sometimes people writing about issues like immigration tend to use very complicated words and after you start reading you get to the second paragraph and it is either too hard to understand or too boring so you stop reading the article. I try to keep my writing simple and as far as the immigration issue goes I of course am biased because my wife almost got deported and we went through years of applying for visas. We filed 29 forms during that time and we still have a long road to go. My written Spanish is not the best although I strive to convey the information that is needed as best as I can. I said I am biased yet my wife and I both feel that the US has laws for a reason and she was perfectly willing to take responsibility and do whatever it took to abide by those laws. Having said that we understand how hard it is for other people having gone through much turmoil.

When to reuse existing alarm equipment

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.

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.
