Peak Alarm is the Leader in Utah

http://www.peakalarm.com Peak Alarm is the only Alarm company that has a UL listed Central Station and a full guard and patrol division.

Call Larry Love (801) 428 1384 or email him at Larry@peakalarm.com for pricing and more information about Peak Alarm.

Many of the TOP TEN, TOP FIVE or BEST ALARM COMPANY lists on the INTERNET are paid services so be sure to look each company up on the BBB web site before you make your decision.

Understand that Peak Alarm does not do Free equipment so if you are paying $149 for the basic PeakLink system with a monthly of $44 per month over 36 months you are paying $149 + $1,584 or $1,733 total but the equipment is not free, nothing ever is.

Other companies will charge you $56 per month or more for 60 months yet they give you FREE equipment but beware because if you do the math you end up paying $3,360 which is almost double so you are paying over $1,600 in order to save a few hundred dollars.

Larry Love has over 20 years in the industry and can help you with all of your alarm, camera, access control and fire alarm needs. Peak Alarm is a certified Mircom dealer.

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. Peak Alarm and Mountain Alarm. http://www.mountainalarm.com z

The PeakLink can also have a repeater added to the system allowing you to have the less expensive system installed in your larger home when 48 points is sufficient.

Top 5 Home Security company Picks in Utah a bit misleading

Security in Utah

Security Systems in Utah

Top 5 Home Security company Picks in Utah is a bit misleading in my opinion.

The ratings are done by a company that you can pay for and they show up in the top portions of the search engines and they do exactly what they say they will do, they get you to the top of the list and appartently it does not matter how many complaints your company has had filed against it or how many current law suits are being filed against your company you can still pay for and get to the top of the search engine.

Now lets look at the results and look up the Better Business Bureau rating on each of the 5 companies and see how the match up to other security companies in Utah

One of the supposedly top 5 Home security companies in Utah has a score of F with the Better Business Bureau www.BBB.org

Another of the listed and reviewed TOP five companies has a score of D-

One of the companies listed has had over 4699 complaints filed in the last 3 years and another one of the top five has over 3200 complaints filed. How do you suppose the ratings were done if not from customer reviews? Looking at the issues filed there are many issues with sales, advertising and equipment problems

Now when we look at two of the largest Utah companies who have been in business for many years what did we find?

Mountain Alarm has an A+ rating with the BBB and only one complaint filed in the last 3 years. www.mountainalarm.com

Peak Alarm also has an A+ rating www.PeakAlarm.com and has only had 4 complaints filed in the last 3 years with no complaints filed in the last year. Peak Alarm has been in business for over 45 years and they are licensed and insured and Interestingly enough neither of these high rated successful companies made it to the TOP 5 HOME SECURITY UTAH PICKS.

When you need pricing for security, fire alarm, access control or cameras check the BBB.org site before you buy and make sure you don’t fall into the trap of picking one of the top 5 companies that may or may not really be in the top five companies. The company that reviews does say it is their top 5 picks so do some more research and come up with the real top five alarm companies in Utah that meet the following criteria.

1. Check the Better Business Bureau. Valid complaints that are presented to the BBB are submitted and researched.
2. Check DOPL Utah Division of Professional Licencing
3. Check online reviews – All large companies will have some negative comments posted and some of the negative comments are done by the same people.
4. How many years has the company been in business?
5. Does the company have their own UL listed Central Station for monitoring or do they sell their accounts to other companies?
6. Does the company have a Security Patrol or Guard Patrol Division (Especially useful where the police have a non-response policy)
7. Does the company have experience with commercial and residential or mostly residential?
8. Does the company have certified NICET technicians and certified techs through the State fire Marshal’s office?

Once you have the answers to these questions you have done your research and you can now decide which three bids you want to get rather than wasting time on companies that have thousands of complaints and companies that are currently being sued in several states.
