Fine Print in Security System contracts

Read the fine print

Today I looked at one of my competitors advertisements and it says They are giving away a FREE SYSTEM, FREE SENSORS and even a FREE GIFT CARD. I looked at the fine print and found a few items that may be helpful to you as a customer.

FINE PRINT ISSUES TO BE AWARE OF:
This is valid only with home systems.
This offer includes up to 15 sensors free for pre wired homes or upto 7 free sensors for wireless but labor charges MAY apply.
This offer with the lower monitoring rate does not include a cellular connection but is contingent upon the customer paying for a landline.
This offer does not include interactive control or remote arm and disarm (Elite)
This offer does not include the extended warranty. (Service Plan – Repair agreement etc…) Hourly rates will apply for repairs.
Gift card is through a 3rd Party and they charge a shipping and handling fee.
The system is apparently free but there is a $99 dollar installation fee.
There is a 36 month agreement that has to be signed
Form of payment must be by credit card or electronic charge to your checking or savings account.
Termination fee applies
This offer is contingent upon the customer passing a CREDIT CHECK. (Peak Alarm does NOT do CREDIT CHECKS)
This offer is to get the salesman in the door because this offer cannot be combined with other offers so the low monitoring rate may not apply

Review your alarm contract closely

Check the BBB Better Business Bureau www.bbb.org on every company that you get pricing from. Some of our competitors even the ones that are running ads similar to this add have thousands of complaints filed. Two of our competitors have over 3000 complaints on the BBB. Peak Alarm has had one complaint filed with the BBB in the last 3 years. That is a real issue because you might sign up and then find out you signed a 60 month agreement or if you don’t have a phone line you end up paying over $50 per month for monitoring. Often if you are in SLC they sign you up for monitoring and since the police don’t respond you have to end up paying a guard service which costs much more than the $10 per month that Peak Charges. Get the facts. Peak Alarm is the only local company that has both a Guard Service, an alarm company and a UL listed Central station to do your monitoring. Many of the others have out of state monitoring stations and no guard service or a 3rd party guard service.

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

It might be less expensive but most of the time the cheap systems work out costing much more than getting it done right by a UL listed company.

It might be less expensive but most of the time the cheap systems work out costing much more than getting it done right by a UL listed company.

Peak Alarm installs and services electronic access control locks and systems. Call Larry Love 801 428 1384 Larry@peakalarm.com http://www.peakalarm.com

You can use Maglocks (no moving parts) or you can use strikes( moving parts which wear out in 3-5 years on certain brands) If you use strikes that allow free egress then often you don’t have to have a request to exit motion or buttons to get out like you would with a maglock. Often the fire marshal will require that the fire alarm release the doors even with strikes so you can not only get out but so fire and emergency workers can get in.

DSX, DMP, Honeywell, Bosch and other products are used and with electronic locks you don’t need to re-key your building after someone leaves. Request to exit motions and a tie into the fire alarm system make it so people can get out in an emergency. Maglocks require door release with a button, motion and often a connection to the fire alarm panel.

Access Control systems will allow you to set user groups and limit access to certain days and certain hours so managers can get into the building any time but normal daily workers badges will only work 9-5PM as an example.

Peak Alarm is the only Alarm company in Utah that has their own central station for monitoring and their own Guard and Patrol Division. Other companies use third party companies for guards and often for monitoring. There are a couple that have their own central stations. Mountain Alarm also known as Fire Protection Services use Avantguard which is owned by family members of Mountain Alarm. Vivint also has a UL listed Central Station that they use to Monitor their accounts. Peak Alarm is the only UL listed Central station that holds 5 UL Certificates including the UL2050 installation and Monitoring Certifications as of 2016.

Companies offer FREE equipment and then end up locking you into a longer term contract or higher monthly payments. Don’t buy without taking time to think it over. Consider a local company instead of a National Company where you will have issues even calling someone for help.

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.

How to Protect Your Home…

Burglars hit a house, apartment or condominium every ten seconds. But if the burglar picks your place instead of the one next door, you probably helped invite him there. He looks for what the police call “targets of opportunity”. In other words, easy pickings.

To protect yourself, make your home look occupied when you’re away. Chances are the thief will pass it up for an easier target. Also, look into making a reasonable investment in good locks, outdoor lights and an alarm system. It will pay off in security and peace of mind. Here are some specific measures you can take.

Keep garage door closed and locked. This helps protect any valuable property you store in garage and prevents access to interior doors. Electric doors should be disconnected and, if practical, consider padlocks on the garage door tracks.

Have your lawn taken care of. Dry, uncut grass and build-up of excessive leaves and debris says you’re away.

Display “beware” signs. If you have a dog or an alarm system, put up signs that say you do. They deter thieves.

Put peepholes in doors. The type with a magnifying glass lens lets you see who’s out there without opening the door. Consider heavy-duty door chains as well.

Ask for police patrol. When you’ll be gone for an extended time, ask police to check your home periodically. And be a good neighbor. If you see unfamiliar or suspicious activity, call the police.

Consult a good locksmith. Different kinds of doors and windows require different kinds of locks. Deadbolt locks are recommended.

Don’t keep expensive jewelry at home. Keep it, along with other small valuables and important documents, in a safe deposit box.

Light the outside of your house. Use automatic light sensors near doors and the rear of the house where thieves do most of their work.

Secure patio doors. A steel rod in the door channel can work. A pin-type lock or a key lock is better. Additionally, secure two or three screws in the overhead track to reduce the chance of lifting the doors out of the track.

Don’t stop all deliveries. Cancel the milk, but have a neighbor pick up mail, newspaper and circulars daily.

Ask a neighbor to use your garbage cans. An empty garbage can is a tip-off that you’re away.

Keep shrubbery trimmed. Thick, tall shrubbery provides cover for a burglar and lets him work detected.

Leave a radio on. It says someone’s home. If you have a volume adjustment on your telephone bell, turn it to the lowest level.

Leave interior lights on. It’s best to use automatic timers to light different rooms at designated times.

Mark valuable items. Marking things a thief would be likely to steal, like the TV and stereo, will help police trace them and return them to you if they are recovered. Use an engraving pen, available at most police stations, and mark your driver’s license number with state abbreviations on items.

Leave drapes and shades open. When they’re closed, they’re a sign of an unoccupied house.

Take care with keys. Don’t leave a key under a doormat, flower pot, or a window ledge. Burglars look there first.

Park a car in your driveway. If you have a second car, leave it in the driveway. Or ask a neighbor to park there. This not only gives the appearance of an occupied house, but prevents burglars from backing up a van for loading.

Look into an alarm system. They vary in sophistication. Peak Alarm systems can even arm automatically when you leave the home. (Geofencing) They can control your lighting, temperature, garage doors,locks and more. Arm and disarm remotely. For the basic system with 3 doors, 1 motion, Panel, Cellular communicator, Keypad, siren and battery $99 installed and $39 per month ($5 more per month for remote arm/disarm) Add $10 per month when you need alarm response in areas the police will not respond.

Consider a camera system that you can view remotely with your cell phone. These type of systems are becoming more affordable and it can give you peace of mind to know when the kids get home and view them home. Many people use cameras to check on their pets while they are at work. Having cameras can be great when you are on vacation.

Tips to Protect your Business

SECURITY SYSTEMS: Burglars target businesses that do not have security systems and camera systems more often than those that do. Burglars look for what the police call “targets of opportunity” In other words, easy pickings. When your alarm system is outdated or in disrepair this can also put you at risk.
Look into making a reasonable investment in good locks, outdoor lighting, a new camera system that you can remotely access and a new security system that you can control using your smartphone. This investment will pay off in security and peace of mind. If you forget to arm the system you can remotely do so.

Leasing a system will allow you to make smaller monthly payments yet you can have your system installed today and when the technology changes in a few years you can have the system updated to a newer system keeping your business on the cutting edge and protected.

CAMERAS : Consider installing a new camera system with high definition cameras that you can view remotely. This can be a deterrent to crime especially internal crime by employees. The cameras also work well as a positive training aid, let the employees know you appreciated specific work they did that you viewed on the camera system. This let them know that you are watching and it won’t come accross as a negative thing when you use the right comments. Cameras can also be very valuable when someone has an accident to view how to prevent future accidents or for insurance purposes.

Here are some specific measures you can take starting today.

TEST: Test your security and camera system regularly replacing decals and signs as needed.

Keep overhead doors closed and locked. Consider padlocks on the garage door tracks.

Keep your outside lighting in working order and consider adding additional lights and cameras.

Hold ongoing training on how to use the security system for new employees and hold review training for employees that may have been trained but do not use the system very often. Test your system every month to assure it is working.

Update your call list every few months making sure phone numbers and names are current.

Every 6 months or every year it is prudent to change all of the security codes. That way if anyone was sharing their code with someone else the old codes will not function. Avoid programming codes that are easy to guess like birth years etc…

LEARN ABOUT YOUR SYSTEM AND ACTIVELY USE IT: To reduce false alarms do not leave balloons near your motion detectors, avoid having hanging displays or mobiles near the motion detection areas. Keep the equipment clean and free of spider webs. Do not have plants or other hanging objects near the heating and air conditioning vents because many times the air flow can cause them to move and set off your motion detectors. Avoid installing motion detection in areas where the temperatures are very low or very high.

Have your security system serviced so it stays in top operating condition. Batteries should be checked periodically and changed as needed. When a door contact or motion detectors are damaged and not repaired, employees notice as do others making the building a more desirable target.

Don’t keep expensive inventory in areas of your business that do not have good constant camera coverage that you can review. Unfortunately a high percentage of shrinkage is attributed to employees and former employees that know your business. Using your camera system proactively can make your employees aware that you do use the camera system and are checking. Let them know how much you appreciate how organized they are or how they handled specific situations. Tell them you saw them unload product while viewing the camera system and let them know what a great job they did. When you use your camera system in such a way people are made aware that you are viewing the cameras and they are less likely to do things they should not do or be involved in theft.

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.
