IP Verses Analog Camera systems

Cameras

Camera Systems in Salt Lake City

2.1MP Cameras have 3 times the resolution of a 700TVL analog camera and now with the new 4K cameras out (about 12 Mega Pixels) it’s much more definition as long as you have a 4K Monitor. A 700TVL camera is about 700,000 whereas the 2.1MP is 2.1 Million

Typical wire for an analog camera system was RG59 Coax with the 18g2c power wire and now the IP cameras run on CAT5 or CAT6 cable

Tell your camera contractor how many days of storage you need so you can pick the proper amount of storage, typically we recommend 1TB for every camera to get around 30 days of storage

Instead of a DVR Digital Video Recorder the IP cameras have NVRs which are Network Video Recorders. Typically you can install a camera no more than 328 feet from the recorder although with special equipment we can install cameras further than that.

Peak Alarm has experts in cameras as well as fire alarm, access control and security. Call Larry for a free site visit and pricing

When you buy systems from a big box store the quality is not the same. When you hold a $30 dollar camera in your hand and hold a $300 dollar camera in the other hand the difference is marked.

Debate both sides logically and emotionally

They have to be planted, grown, picked, packed, shipped and sold.

They have to be planted, grown, picked, packed, shipped and sold.

Often we make decisions based on several factors including logic, facts, our own opinions, the opinions of others, personal experience, how we feel and our emotions. We tend to make these types of decisions for voting, church, jobs and life. As much as we would like to think that we make logical decisions often we end up using our gut feelings to make important decisions. Sometimes this is good and sometimes it is not so good.

Trying to convince someone that they are on the wrong path as far as religion goes is difficult because they may have been in a church or group of people with years or maybe their parents were part of a church before they were even born so it is more of a culture thing than religion. You can’t argue faith based commitments.

A friend of mine told me that they ended up voting for a certain person just because they did not feel good about the other person and it had nothing to do with facts or their voting track record or the issues. The same applies to religion and our personal purchases. It may be better if we did things like SPOCK from Star Trek but it does not work out that way.

I work at a large Alarm company (Peak Alarm) and we are the only company that has a full Guard/Patrol and a Local UL listed Central Station in Utah and there are several other positive aspects about this company as far as them being insured, licensed, factory trained and the list goes on but if your neighbor heard of a negative experience regarding Peak Alarm then logic gets thrown out the window. I know of two such negative experiences that I read on the Internet about Peak Alarm and one of them was posted on several web sites so we investigated and found that this person did not complain to the Better Business Bureau because I assume they did not want both sides investigated. This person had not paid their bill and Peak tried to collect and when accounting did not get a payment plan set up they sent it to collections and the person then got upset.

Another instance of a negative comment was about fire code. The customer wanted Peak Alarm to do the work without contacting the fire marshal and as per Utah and National code for commercial work we are required to notify the local fire marshal and get approval for the work. This customer felt that Peak Alarm through them under the bus and yet we are required to notify the AHJ Fire Marshal. So just these two negative experiences can pass by word of mouth to many other people which can cause people to ignore the real figures and facts about Peak Alarm and go with someone else because they did not study out the information and find out the real truth. One of our competitors has over 3000 complaints in the last year compared with 3 complaints that have been filed against Peak Alarm Better Business Bureau web site www.bbb.org

Our management team has read all the negative feedback and used it to put an action plan in place to make Peak Alarm better. Changes were made in our accounting department and we changed who we used to do collections because apparently they were not the nicest people in the world when calling to make the collections. We have given training to all of our employees and we do so on an ongoing basis. Peak overall is a great company with four offices, a Guard/Patrol division, central Station for monitoring, alarm division, AV division and not only are all of our employees licensed but they also go through the FBI background check and if they cannot pass it they lose their job at Peak Alarm.

Our average monthly monitoring rate with interactive services to arm and disarm remotely (We call it Elite control) starts right around $46 dollars a month and most of our competitors start around $49 and go up from there. We can compete well with guard services because you can contract directly with us rather than paying your alarm company who would hire a guard company so we can be competitive in pricing.

Axis Camera Certification

Larry at work with Lizeths stepdad

www.peakalarm.com

Several employees from Peak Alarm were certified last week and passed the AXIS Camera certification exam. The testing was done by PROMETRIC. The three day training was intensive. I personally was challenged by this class and the test although I passed it and learned a great deal about IP camera systems. Having sales people that have extensive training assists the installation technicians to do their job since the jobs are designed properly from the start.

Peak Alarm is not known for being the least expensive or low bidder on most projects. Peak Alarm is known for quality. Having been in business for over 45 years with an A+ Better Business Bureau rating peak maintains a high level of factory training for both technicians and the sales force. There were 30 Peak Alarm employees in the AXIS training class.

Peak Alarm also has certified technicians for DSX, DMP, Hochiki and others.

Many customers that look for the least expensive security solution end up with one of our competitors that has thousands of complaints with the Better Business Bureau and buyers remorse at a later date.

Spending the money to have a professional installation done right the first time will help you avoid that remorse.

One of the companies I visited two weeks ago had gone through 2 camera systems before they finally called us. The first system was a camera system from a big box store and the old adage “you get what you pay for” could not have applied more. The second system was installed by a security company who provided very low quality materials and the system is only 2 years old and is falling apart.

Peak Alarm offers entry level systems, midrange and enterprise systems. We want to keep our customers for generations, our goal is not just to get the sale.

Give me a call at 801 428 1384 or email me at Larry@peakalarm.com and I can come by and do a site assessment at no charge here on the Wasatch front within 80 Miles of Salt Lake City. Peak Alarm is licensed, their employees are licensed and have gone through the FBI back ground checks, the company is insurred and keeps their workers compensation insurance, their auto insurance and their general liability insurance up to date. Peak Alarm pays use tax on equipment and all applicable taxes where required.

Peak Alarm offers equipment for sale and on leases OAC. We can do 12 month, 24 month, 36 month or even 60 month contracts. If it is needed Peak Alarm can also do month to month contracts for specific situations. Keep in mind that most of our customers sign the 36 month contract in order for Peak to help out and subsidize part of the equipment. When you sign up for a 12 month contract the equipment will have a higher cost than a 36 month contract. Leasing is a good option for many companies because the up front costs are not as high. Call us and we can help you find the best option for your installation needs.

We look forward to your call.

When hardwired systems are installed there is a charge for wire/cable and time to install the cable including drilling and or installation of conduit and or wiremold. Having a PREWIRE done while your building is in the stick phase is very prudent. On a hardwired system you don’t have to change the batteries at the device location just at the headend location once every 3 or 5 years. (Normally)

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.
