Senior Citizen monitoring discount Peak Alarm

Marilyn Sheppick


Peak Alarm will lock in Senior Citizens at a fixed monitoring rate. Senior Citizens often are on a fixed income and having a monitoring company increase their rates every years on their security system monitoring does not help.

My mother remarried and I found out she was paying 72 dollars a month through one of the largest national security monitoring companies and the rates had increased over the years. The 72 dollars a month was only for monthly monitoring and did not include other services it was through the phone line. I called that company to make the change since they were out of contract and it was very difficult to get them to cancel the agreement even though they were not under contract any longer. I lowered her rate and added a medical button which she did end up pushing when she fell in the bathroom. Peak Alarm’s monitoring rates start at $26 dollars a month and depending on what services you decide on such as another $10 for cellular or another $5 for interactive remote arm and disarm the rates can be a bit higher but once a senior is locked in they keep that rate. Jerry Howe the owner made this decision and we have been in business for over 48 years.

UL2050 requirements not always being met

48 years in business

Many companies are not meeting the specific requirements of UL2050. Keep in mind that there is a UL Certificate that the company must have to do the installations as well as a UL Certificate to Monitor a UL2050 account.(CRZM) Many companies do the installations without the install Certificate. (CRZH) Verify that the company you are dealing with has each certificate. The NSA came from Washington to verify that our Central Station would meet the requirements that they needed for the Military monitoring for the Utah Army National Guard.

Utah Alarm Pricing

Peak Alarm web site ask for Larry Love

When a product is quite a bit less expensive you need to question why.

Contact Larry Love at Peak Alarm for all your alarm, access, fire alarm, intrusion, cameras and intercom needs. (801) 428 1384

We can lower your installation cost when you sign a 3 year agreement because we can subsidize some of the cost over time. We can do contracts that are less time but we would not be able to lower the install as much. We can even do month to month agreements but the upfront cost would be more.

Any time you have a licensed, insurred and certified company you will end up paying a bit more for their services although this is worth it.

Labor rates at Peak are $100 per hour for residential and $145 per hour for commerical. When I am in a bidding situation I can lower the hourly labor rate a bit when we run it through my department.

Check the Better Business Bureau on all of your alarm companies. Peak has a very good track record at the BBB. In the last 3 years we only have one complaint that is shown on our record. Many of our competitors have a great deal more complaints.

If you are concerned about hackers disarming your system from out front of your home have Peak install a Qolsys system or a DMP system both of which are encrypted

Take time to speak with an expert before you buy an alarm system of any kind. Larry Love has been in the industry for over 20 years. If you buy inferior equipment or fall for the “free equipment” sales pitch often you will be upset later. Call Larry and go over your options. Peak Alarm offers different contract periods and different lines of equipment depending on your needs.

When an alarm company tells you that they will give you free equipment make sure to check the contract because nothing really ends up being free, you will pay either now or later. Peak offers very competitive monitoring rates. If you pay $35 per month for security monitoring we can subsidize part of the equipment and if you pay a bit more we can subsidize more and if you buy a repair agreement then it can help you avoid hourly labor charges and changing batteries.

Looking for the least expensive service like phone service can often bite you in the butt later on. Often the least expensive service gives you the least service as well. Look for a company that is solid. (47 years in business) look for a company that does not have to go to a third party to provide you alarm response with guards. (Peak has their own guards) Look for a company that has their own central station. (Peak is the only central station in Utah to hold 5 different UL certifications) Peak is certified for UL2050 installation and monitoring.

Monitoring switchover general pricing examples for 2016 SPRING SPECIALS 60 DAYS ONLY based on 36 month agreements:

NOTES ON PHONELINES: If you are paying for monitoring and paying for analog phone lines you may be paying too much. If you can cancel you phone line and use a cellular or radio it can save you quite a bit of money in the long run.

1. Burglar system up to 30 points no cost switchover and $25 per month when monitored over phoneline.
2. Burglar system up to 30 points no cost switchover and $40.00 per month when we install a new cellular communicator. ** This price includes remote arm and disarm. (Elite control)
3. Fire Alarm system up to 30 points tied to two analog phone lines. Inspection fee is $288 including acceptance tag and NFPA 72 report or you can add $24 per month for 12 months to pay for the annual inspection (divided into 12 payments.) Monthly monitoring would be $25.00 per month. When the system is larger we will need to do an evaluation and price this out for you. If the system only has 10 points on the system monitoring would be the same but the inspection fee would only be $180 per year or $15 per month for inspection.
4. Fire Alarm system up to 30 points when Peak Alarm adds a Cellular Communicator in order to eliminate the phone lines. $49 dollars installed and $47 per month. Annual inspection fee with tag and NFPA 72 report as in number 3 can be added to the monthly or you can pay before the inspection.
5. Fire Alarm system up to 30 points when Peak Alarm installs a new AES Radio in order to eliminate the phone lines. $315 dollars installed and $40 per month. Annual inspection fee with tag and NFPA 72 report as in number 3 and 4 can be added to the monthly or you can pay before the inspection according to your exact device and appliance counts.

*For each additional 15 points add $148 dollars to the switchover cost (Includes testing)

** Some alarm systems are so old that they cannot upgrade without changing the main panel, in which case we would need to know the exact model, brand and version of the system, how many devices, how many keypads and it is best to do a site visit before quoting pricing. Larry can come out to your facility or home at no charge to do this evaluation. If you Fire Alarm system can communicate using contact ID we can tie a new cellular unit on it, so it will be able to communicate. Fire Alarm High Supervision cellular units send a signal every 6 minutes.

*** Currently we do not offer remote arm and disarm services when using a radio to communicate. You will notice on the fire alarm that the radio costs a bit more for the installation but considering that you can eliminate your phone lines and it costs less per month this will be the best solution in the long run. The radio remains property of Peak Alarm and if it stops working peak will come out and service the radio at no charge.

UL 2050 High Security installation and monitoring

46 years in business

UL 2050 High Security installation and monitoring in Utah and Idaho call Larry Love at Peak Alarm 801 428 1384

Peak Alarm web site ask for Larry Love

UL2050 installations are installed and monitored a bit differently than normal security installations. There is a special training for those that design UL 2050 systems and the Central Station has to maintain a special certification and stay in compliance with specific requirements in order to maintain that certificate.

The wire is installed in conduit and the screws are cut off to make it more difficult to defeat the system. Only certain products meet the requirements for these high security installations. Peak Alarm is both a Bosch and DMP dealer and both of these manufacturers meet those requirements when using certain systems such as the D9412GV4 or the DMP550 panels.

We normally install tamper switches inside and on the back side of the security panel as well as in the junction boxes depending on the specific installation. We will design your system to meet the requirements of UL2050. We also have vibration sensors we can install inside the panel and the contacts we use are special BMS balanced magnetic contacts that make it much more difficult to defeat the magnets since you cannot just put a magnet up next to them to bypass them. We also have special Bosch motion detectors that are tritech and we have ones that will alert you even if someone spray paints the motion to try to defeat it. Other motions will cease to function when they are sprayed with paint. The Bosch one I am referring to will also not function properly after it is sprayed although it will send you an alert when this happens.

UL2050 installations require special response times as well as schedules which will alert you if your system is armed up too late or disarmed too early etc… (depending on the requirements) If your facility is not supposed to open before 8AM and someone disarms it early that would send a signal to the central station. A system that is installed using these higher standards and a system that is tested using these higher standards is not only more reliable but it is more secure.

UL2050 installations by Peak Alarm are done by a local company that is certified and authorized to install and monitor these systems
