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.

There are different UL listings in different categories so when you decide on a Central Station and installation and service company make sure they have the certifications in the different areas that you will need for your specific projects such as High Security, Fire Alarm, UL installation and such. Just because the Central Station has one UL certification does not mean they are qualified in the other areas that you may need.

UL updates their records on an ongoing basis so be sure to verify on their web site. This information was as of 5/27/16. On the UL site go to online certifications directory at the bottom to find the companies in an area or state that hold certifications. All of this information is public record on the UL.com site. When you find any errors on this blog please inform Larry@peakalarm.com and he will correct those errors after verification of the correct information.

*Mountain Alarm/FPS Mountain Alarm web site sold Avantguard a while back although they still use Avantguard as their Central Station and apparently there is still a relationship between the companies as far as ownership goes. Mountain Alarm is the security side of the business and FPS is Fire Protection Services which does fire alarm etc…

There are about 200 Central Stations in the US that are both UL and 5 Diamond Certified and Peak ALarm is one of those. The CSAA 5 Diamond certification indicates that all of our Central Station dispatchers/employees are highly trained to react calmly and appropriately to high stress situations.

It is best to look up the complaints on the Better Business Bureau The official Better Business Bureau web site

From the information that we have about the UL listed Central Stations in this document the LDS Church does not monitor accounts as a business nor does L3 Communications West or Boeing so those Central Stations hold the proper listings in order to meet the criteria and provide services within their realm so you can’t call them up and have them monitor your security or fire alarm accounts. UL listed Central Stations out of State can be used although some Fire Marshals request that a local Central Station be used in certain cases. Often insurance companies and other requirements are in play so they want a local central station to do the monitoring and provide the installation and service when needed.

Peak Alarm is the only company that currently holds all 5 of the above UL Certifications in Utah

Peak Alarm also has a full Guard and Patrol division as well as armed or unarmed guards. Peak Alarm has been in business since 1969.

Peak Alarm

What does Monthly Monitoring cost? It really depends on the options you decide upon but here are some itemized options:

Basic Monitoring using phone lines is normally $32.00 per month
To Add Smart Phone Control (Elite Control) add $15.00 per month ($32.00 plus $15.00 is $47.00 per month)
To add High Supervision Cellular for Fire Alarm add $22.00 per month to the monitoring cost (Sends signals every 6 minutes)
To monitor using an AES Radio add $15.00 per month to the monitoring cost ($32.00 plus $15.00 is $47.00)

When you just want to switch monitoring using your existing system here are some options:

Adding an AES Radio for Security $49.00 installation and $39.00 per month for 36 months
Adding an AES Radio for Fire Alarm $340.00 installation and $39.00 per month for 36 months
Adding a cellular communicator to your system to get rid of your phone lines or upgrade from a 2g unit $39.00 to $44.00 per month for 36 months (0 down)

Email reports $5 per month
Web Access $5 per month
Schedules like openings and closings $10 per month (This lets you know when your system is being armed or disarmed so you can see if employees are coming in too early or leaving too late.)
Partitions – $12 per month (You can have additional partitions and not pay extra as long as you don’t have different call lists)
Lock Control $4 per month
Lighting Control $4 per month
Garage door Control $4 per month
Temperature Control $4 per month
Guard Response (Alarm response) $10 per month (Limited to Guard Patrol areas)
We can monitor your elevators for $15.00 per month.

I can get you pricing for any term such as MONTH TO MONTH, 12 MONTH, 24 MONTH, 36 MONTH, 48 MONTH or 60 MONTH agreements.

Example: Going with a Month to month plan so you will not be under a long term contract installing a cell phone would be $580 installation and as low as $34 per month depending on how you want to structure it. Many people can’t come up with that amount of money right now so we offer the 36 month agreement so you don’t have to. When you add up say $39 dollars a month times 36 months you get $1,404 that you would have paid in that time period. Subtract the cost of the cellular installation of $580 and that leaves $824 that would be the actual cost of the monitoring after the equipment was paid for which ends up being under 23 dollars or less than a $1 per day so letting Peak Alarm subsidize part of the system for you actually works in your favor.

Phone line monitoring when you provide phone lines is normally $32.00 per month. Discounts available for multiple accounts. Each monitoring plan is customized to each company or individual depending on their needs. We can also give you $75 dollars in monitoring credit every time you refer a customer that purchases a system with Peak Alarm.

When you live in an area with a non response policy such as Salt Lake City and the police will not come Peak Alarm will provide you with 4 guard dispatches in a year as part of your Alarm Response package for only $10 per month extra. Responses after the first 4 will be billed at a discounted rate.

Just like cell phone plans you can pay for the equipment upfront and that can change the agreement length and monitoring price can also be adjusted depending on the package.

If you want to pay a higher monthly rate we can lower your installation cost. Peak is not known for doing FREE systems and most people have learned that you get what you pay for. Nothing really ends up being free, when you get something that they tell you is free you end up paying for it somewhere either now or later. Don’t end up paying for it in the service end.

You can also add a repair agreement to your account so you can avoid paying the hourly service rate of $130 per hour commercial and $100 per hour for residential. When we add this small charge to your account Peak will come out and change batteries, fix equipment that wears out etc…Adding a repair agreement to a system with 4 points is only $7.00 per month and $1 for each additional point.

Peak Alarm does not do credit checks and we also don’t offer free systems like other companies. When someone runs a credit check on you understand that can affect your credit score. Peak has been in business for 46 years because we don’t give free systems away. Many of the companies that do this have started up only to go out of business. We pay our technicians and we offer benefits and we employee over 270 people and as a local company that provides jobs we strive to do the prudent things that will keep us in business. Someone that cannot afford a $99 dollar security system most likely should not be purchasing it in the first place.

Every single Peak Alarm dispatcher is 5 Diamond Certified so besides being a UL listed Central Station Peak holds the coveted 5 Diamond Certification that shows our commitment to training. There are only 200 Central Stations in the Nation that have the UL and 5 Diamond Certifications. This means they all have been trained to do their jobs and react calmly even under pressure and in emergency circumstances.

Peak Alarm ranked #61 in the Nation from SDM Magazine and Peak AV ranked #18 in the Nation through CE Pro Magazine.

Peak Alarm also has a special deal right now on PeakEdge which is Access Control which is normally $2000 dollars per door but we have the special where it is $2,000 for two doors and only $30 per month for 36 months which includes the service agreement. This adds up to $1,540 per door although you only have to come up with $2,000 and the $30 a month gives you peace of mind that Peak will keep the system in good working order. Call Larry for additional details.

These prices are valid for 30 days from 102715 so please call Larry Love for updated pricing.
