Don’t wait till you sign a contract to find out about the complaints.

Before you even get pricing from an Alarm Company do the following:

1. Check the Better Business Bureau (Peak has zero complaints as of 01/06/18)

1A. Request to see their blue and white Utah DOPL license that each salesperson and tech are required to carry on their person. This means they have gone through an FBI check. Some companies hire people that are not licensed two such individuals came to my door and got reported. They just had their company ID and said the license was kept at the office.

2. Ask if they require a credit check before you buy. (Peak does not)

3. Ask if they will charge your visa just to come out and give you a bid or a site visit. (Larry Love at Peak will come out at no charge) They say they will apply it to the purchase when you buy.

4. Clarify their contract length because many will say one thing and have you sign something entirely different, because of this one of the Utah companies has been sued in 32 states.

5. Beware of a salesperson saying things like “Your alarm company is going out of business or we will update your equipment for free” Article from ADT about deceptive salespeople click here

6. Beware of companies that say “Installation is FREE” often they will wrap the charges in elsewhere. Peak Alarm starts cell monitoring at $40 per month with interactive many others will charge over $60 or $70 and obviously since you are paying an extra $30 per month after 36 months you have paid an additional $1000 dollars so they can afford to give you a few free items but understand you are paying much more than you think.

7. Many of these companies hire clean cut individuals just for the summer and they can earn quite a bit in a summer so they can return to school so often their knowledge is very limited.

Check licensing before you buy

Peak Alarm bullet points:

1. UL listed Central Station that is Local and 5 diamond certified (Only about 200 UL listed Stations in the Nation also have the 5 diamond certification)
2. Local company that employees over 300 employees and has 4 offices to serve you.
3. The only Alarm company that also has their own Patrol and Guard division. In Salt Lake City, West Valley and come other cities the police will not respond.
4. Licensed and insured. Each employee has been through the FCI background check and passed and has to pass these checks on an ongoing basis to keep working at Peak Alarm.
5. Zero complaints on the Better Business Bureau as of 1/6/18 some of our competitors have over 1000 complaints
6. Peak has been in the business since 1969 and many of their salespeople have extensive security, fire, camera and low voltage experience and certifications.
7. Peak has a fleet of over 100 vehicles.

Protect yourself from companies using deceptive sales techniques: Ask for their license, check their BBB report, read the fine print, read the complaints filed and check if the company is being sued currently and why. Some Alarm companies have been sued in several states, one Utah Alarm company has been sued in 32 States and has over 4000 complaints currently filed with the BBB.

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.

Security System Pricing

I took this picture in Guatemala

I took this picture in Guatemala

Call Larry Love (801) 428 1384 for Security System Pricing

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.

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.

Hello, My name is Amanda Cowen and I’m from Casa Granda Arizona and was visiting some family in Utah and I would like to tell you about an experience I had with one of your patrol officers. I was on my way to my daughter’s house with my grand children on Sunday the 10th from a late church event we were attending when my tire went flat on the 215 freeway just past 4700 south in Utah around 7:30 that evening. It was pouring rain and I didn’t have a jack and no one stopped to try to help, but one of your Peak patrol cars came up behind me and your officer asked if I needed help. I told him my tire went flat and didn’t have a jack and I was trying to get a hold of a daughter’s husband to come help me, but couldn’t get a hold of him. He said he would be happy to help me. Poor guy didn’t have a jacket or anything, but got out a jack from his car and changed my tire for me. I offered to pay him and he declined it and stayed behind me so I could safely pull out. I was so thankful for his help that I thought I would let you know what a great job he did. Small acts of kindness is what this world needs more of and I’m thankful that your patrol guy was at the right place at the right time. He was so nice and professional that it throw me off because people in Arizona are rude. People like this should be recognized in a company, I don’t know what your paying him, but he should get a raise. God Bless……..

We love to hear stories like this because there are far more good things happening out there than bad. The other day I spent about 3 hours with one of the Peak Guard employees who is in charge of a large complex and during that time I was incredible to see and hear the reaction of the public to our Peak Guard. People knew his name and he knew their names as well. I was so impressed with his knowledge of the job site, the people and the facility. Hats off to our Peak Guards and Patrol units.

Quality equipment normally takes longer to manufacture, is made with superior materials and lasts longer and works better. In our society often we end up paying more for brand names and many times brand name items are better than no name brands.

You get what you pay for so pay a bit more and go with the best. We are not low bidder very often but understand that often companies that are low bid have left something out of their proposal and many times they have to look for ways to cut corners. Peak Alarm does it right.

Low bid in utah salt lake city Security Alarms

Call Larry Love 801 428 1384

Quality equipment and a professional installation is not always obtained when you go with low bid. When you decide to go with the lowest price, often you get what you pay for.

To compare apples to apples both systems need to have the same warranty and features.

To compare apples to apples both systems need to have the same warranty and features.

Companies that are the consistent low bidders often leave things out and have to cut corners to finish the project without losing money. Many times these companies go out of business in the first few years because of mismanagement, not paying insurance, taxes, overtime and suppliers.

Does the company you use provide encrypted alarm systems such as DMP, Bosch or Qolsys to prevent hacking of your security?

1. Is the Alarm Company licensed by the State of Utah as an Alarm Company (DOPL)? This requires that they have a QA or Qualifying Agent that meets stringent experience requirements and testing. To install camera systems, intercoms, access control and other low voltage does not always mean you need to have a State Burglar Alarm Company license although I would rather have the company doing this sensitive work for me be a licensed company.
2. Are all of the employees licensed by DOPL? Division Of Occupational Licensing. (having passed an FBI background check) Many companies don’t license all their employees. Ask for their blue and white license because State law requires them to have it on their person at all times. Look up UTAH DOPL Licensed people and companies

3. Does the company you are considering have an A+ rating or an acceptable rating with the Better Business Bureau? Put in your zip then look up companies ? Two of our competitors have over 2000 complaints registered with the Better Business Bureau whereas in the last 5 years Peak Alarm has only had 5 complaints and they have all been dealt with.

In this day and age of the Internet anyone can post anything and do it on several sites and cause negative reviews to stand out. Peak Alarm takes all valid complaints seriously and uses them to make positive changes and improvements for the company. People that do not have valid complaints have not taken them to the Better Business Bureau because they know they will be investigated. So take care when reading and believing online complaints and reviews. Check out the BBB and talk to your neighbors and friends and look at the proof and results of a company that has been in business for over 46 years.

4. Does the company you are considering have current workers compensation insurance, general liability insurance and are they factory trained and certified? Peak Alarm recently paid to have over 20 employees certified on special systems and I was in those trainings and I also got certified. Peak Alarm is big on training and improving the company any way that will help us become bigger, better and faster.

5. Are the technicians certified to test and inspect fire alarm systems in the State of Utah? (Certifications from the State Fire Marshal) The tag and inspection for your sprinkler system is not the same one as the fire alarm, they are two separate tests. The fire alarm system is required by State law to be tested once a year.

Utah Fire Marshal Certification for Fire Alarm

6. Often after bidding occurs General Contractors will let the subs know what the bids were and give the low bidder a chance to back out and admit they left something out. This is embarrassing although it is realistic. Some general contractors will throw out the lowest bid if it is too far off, knowing that they are in for more headaches if they decide to use the lowest bid.
7. When you as a home owner or business owner get 3 bids for a camera system and two of them are over 20K and one is 12K you need to know that you are not looking at apples to apples bids. Either the equipment is in a whole difference class of equipment or something was left out. That is why having a drawing and a specification is so helpful. Go over your budget and decide at what quality level you would like to go with. There are entry level camera systems, mid-range and high end systems. We have AXIS/ Bosch cameras and Salient Servers for our high end camera systems and we have several other brands for our midrange and entry level systems. We have FLIR systems that also have entry level, midrange and high end within their brand.

AXIS Cameras are incredible

FLIR Entry Level, Midrange and High End

Bosch Video Lines

High End Video Servers

8. Labor is generally very close to what it should be on most bids although small companies with not as much overhead can bid their labor a bit lower although beware because when you go with companies like that often there are some risks involved. If the company only has one or two techs and there is a family emergency you may be out of luck. Here at Peak we have 5 offices and 271 employees to serve you.

Labor +Conduit if required+wire/cable+drilling & penetrations +device = Cost

A camera that is 300 feet from the headend will cost more to install than one that is in a drop tile office 100 feet from the headend. Good estimators factor all this in.

We have a different business model than many other companies that want to get in and get the system installed and get out. You may need to actually wait in line for our services depending on what it is. We offer same day SERVICE which many of the other large companies cannot do. However if you order a large fire alarm or camera system we will need to put you on the schedule and it may be out a few weeks. Companies are willing to wait because they know our track record. We order the right equipment and schedule the right people to install it. Our techs are not waiting in the office for the phone to ring. They are out working and we have customers call in every day to get on our schedule.

When you need to speak with someone you can call me and I will take responsibility and help you get a response whether it is from accounting, install or service.

9. Avoid proprietary equipment that only one or two dealers can sell and service. A company will get in the door with a lower price and then they have you hooked and can charge a much higher labor rate and they also charge more for parts. Peak Alarm charges $100 per hour for residential and $130 per hour for commercial work. There are some companies that charge less and normally if the company is charging quite a bit less there is a reason for it.

10. Peak Alarm has a full service Guard and Patrol company.

11. Peak AV division took #18 in the nation (SDM magazine)

12. Peak Alarmed rated #61 in the nation up from last years rating of 62 (also in SDM magazine)

13. Peak Alarm has their own UL listed Central Station that is also 5 Diamond Certified meaning that we have redundant replacement equipment in stock, backup generators with fuel storage, bullet proof glass, man trap doors, min amount of dispatchers on staff at any given time, verified response times, annual audits from UL, every dispatcher has passed the 5 diamond test and knows the best way to respond to emergencies in a professional manner.

14. Peak Alarm is a member of NETONE which is a group of 36 elite alarm companies in the country. Peak covers Utah and Idaho. As a member of this group Peak Alarm has resources for training and recognition throughout the country. NETONE constantly seeks to improve the alarm industry and Peak is a part of those ongoing improvements.
