Call Larry Love (801) 428 1384 or email him at Larry@peakalarm.com for pricing and more information about Peak Alarm.
Many of the TOP TEN, TOP FIVE or BEST ALARMCOMPANY lists on the INTERNET are paid services so be sure to look each company up on the BBB web site before you make your decision.
Understand that Peak Alarm does not do Free equipment so if you are paying $149 for the basic PeakLink system with a monthly of $44 per month over 36 months you are paying $149 + $1,584 or $1,733 total but the equipment is not free, nothing ever is.
Other companies will charge you $56 per month or more for 60 months yet they give you FREE equipment but beware because if you do the math you end up paying $3,360 which is almost double so you are paying over $1,600 in order to save a few hundred dollars.
Peak Alarm is the only local Alarmcompany in Utah that has Guard Alarm response using their own guards and patrol, their own UL listed central station to monitor the accounts and their own alarmcompany to sell, install, test and service accounts.
Alarm companies that are too big are harder to deal with. Peak Alarm is local and has 88 employees on the Alarm side of operations. This means we are big enough to do any size project and still provide same day or next day service.
Some companies that are National are harder to deal with because some of those companies have a month waiting list when you need service and when you have proprietary equipment installed there is nothing you can do about the wait time and the equipment costs are normally double what other equipment costs are. Just food for thought. Peak Alarm does not install Proprietary equipment that would leave you stuck with only one vender.
Contact Larry Love (801) 428 1384 Larry@PeakAlarm.com for questions on pricing or for a free site visit. Peak has four offices to serve you. Salt Lake, Saint George, Boise and Idaho Falls.
When you call you Speak with real people.
Same day or next day service calls
Installations are done on a first come first serve basis. Smaller residential installations have a shorter wait time because we have a team that does just the smaller projects.
Commercial projects are a bit more involved and if it is a fire alarm job we are required to have plans signed off by the local fire marshal before we can start work to meet Utah Law and NFPA 72 code.

Once a company get too big it becomes hard to deal with them. Peak Alarm is large enough to take care of our customers needs and we are growing at a good rate although we are still local and still family owned and our owner still comes to work each day and is accessible to the employees and customers. When the company gets too big then it becomes very difficult to reach anyone when you need to talk to someone. After reading through the list above give it some thought and then call Larry Love.
So if you answered YES to all of the above questions and you are happy with your current Alarmcompany that is awesome. If you answered no to any of these and would like additional information about Peak Alarm please call Larry Love at 801 428 1384 or email him Larry@PeakAlarm.com
Obviously there is a long list of positive and good points about Peak Alarm. This does not mean Peak Alarm does not have it’s challenges which we do although we use any negative feedback to try and learn from it. Our installation manager takes pictures of any problems out in the field and uses those in the training sessions. All of our phone calls are recorded with the exception of the secure line in accounting so Peak can go back and listen to how we treat customers and use this for training. The accounting line that is not recorded is used to protect your visa and banking information.
Many have security concerns such as what if someone breaks the glass and comes in a window?
What if someone cuts our phone line?
What if someone breaks through the wall next door?
What if an ex-employee tries to get in using their old code and password?
We have had all of the above happen and more. Believe me, when someone wants to get in they will although having a professional securitysystem can be a deterrent and make it less likely that these things will happen to you when you are not the easiest target.
Have motions, door contacts and glass break sensors installed.
Have a cellular or radio installed so getting your phone line cut will not be an issue.
Change your codes and passwords whenever employees are let go or leave. Delete their code the same day and change the password that same day.
Do you have a security contact on your roof hatch?
Peak Alarm has the man power, professional experience and know how to address each of these concerns. Peak Alarm has been in business for over 46 years and we have offices in Utah and Idaho along with our local UL listed central station, patrol, guard and AV divisions you can count on Peak Alarm.
It might be free but most of the time the free systems work out costing much more than getting it done right.
Write down an outline of what you wish to accomplish. Have clear end results listed.
Have a plan drawn up with the device locations of where you think things should be installed
Hire a alarm consultant to go over your outline and plans with you to refine and make educated professional suggestions.
Be clear about your budget so you can stick to a system that will fit within your budget.
You don’t need motion detectors in every room unless you have a specific plan that requires this, you can have trap areas where motions are placed strategically, decide if glass break sensors would be appropriate for your application, consider water, temperature, air flow, humidity, panic buttons, door and window contacts and other sensors that may be a good fit for your installation. Don’t forget to put overhead door contacts on your OHD Overhead doors.
Consider separating the areas of your company so they can be armed and disarmed in different partitions. The shop could be disarmed say at 5AM but the shop employees could not disarm the office. The room where the accounting records is could be armed and disarmed separately as well.
Peak Alarm can help you with a design that would work for your circumstances. Each business is different so we can come out and do a no cost evaluation on the Wasatch front areas, Saint George, Boise, Idaho Falls, and Park City area and help you with the details.
Get online and check each and every company on the Better Business Bureau web site. Be sure to look up their history because several of the companies that compete against us have changed their name several times. Currently one of the companies that has done this has over 3499 complaints on the better business bureau web site. So be sure to check the different listings, check to see if they are BBB accredited or not, check their reviews. Peak Alarm has had 3 complaints filed in the last year compared to hundreds or thousands from our competitors. Don’t get caught listening to their low prices and fancy talk. Check them out first.
Steer clear of proprietary products that only one company in your state can provide, program, install and service.
Go for something in between the extremes. One extreme is a product that only one company can provide therefore you are locked into their higher labor rate and their higher parts rates. The other extreme is a product that every alarm dealer can install which leaves you open to companies that are not experienced, companies that may not do a professional installation.
Peak Alarm installs brands such as DMP, DSX, Bosch, Hochiki, Silent Knight, Firelite, AXIS and others. These products are not exclusive although all of these products require special factory training so the installers need to be a cut above the rest. Some of these products have limited their distribution to a few companies although you are more likely to get a professional installation yet there is still competition with pricing because you are not limited to just one company. DMP has I believe 5 Alarm dealers in Salt Lake City right now. DSX has 4 the last time I checked and Bosch had about 6 dealers.
Consider a professional camera installation rather than a system from a big box store that ends up costing you about $50 to $100 per camera. When you spend $100 on a camera that is exactly what you get is a hundred dollar camera. You spend seven times that on your cell phone and a securitysystem should Merritt you taking the equipment seriously. There is a big difference between a 700 TVL analog camera and a 3MP camera. Learn the differences. There are cameras that are 3MP from an overseas company that cost 1/2 of what a Bosch 3MP camera or AXIS camera cost and there are reasons for that. Be careful when trying to cut corners on price because most of the time you will end up cutting on quality and features as well as warranty.
Peak Alarm has been in business for over 46 years, has an A+ rating with the BBB and has their own local UL listed Central Station, their own AV division, their own Alarm division, their own Guard and Patrol division and offices in 5 cities in Utah and Idaho.
Peak Alarm has been in business for over 46 years and is certified for installation and monitoring from UL for UL2050 high securityalarm systems which is used by private entities and the Government. Peak Alarm has a current rating of A+ with the BBB.org
Call Larry Love at 801 428 1384 or email him at Larry@peakalarm.com Larry is trained in UL 2050 design and Peak Alarm is one of the few companies that can meet this requirement in Utah and Idaho. Peak Alarm also has a full Guard and Patrol Division as well as an AV division so we can be your full service company.
UL 2050 has special requirements on how security systems are installed and how they are monitored. Call Larry and he can come out to your site in Utah in the Wasatch front area to do a no cost onsite evaluation. It is best when you have a drawing of the building and a specification of the room or area that needs the certification. The portion of the work that will be certified via UL2050 will be the securitysystem and the monitoring so other aspects such as the cameras and the access control can also be added to the installation as well.
Typically we will install a special panel that meets the requirements with a tamper behind the panel and inside the panel, often we install vibration sensors to detect if the wall is being drilled. (depends on location of the panel) The entire system will be in conduit and the screws will be ground off, the junction boxes will have tamper switches installed so if someone trying to access any of the wire connections the system will alert the central station of the issue. System coverage will be designed to meet the specific need of your room or area. Sometimes we install motions in the room and above the drop tile ceiling depending on the configuration and the construction.
Larry has over 20 years of experience and current certifications such as AXIS Certified Professional Certification, NICET Fire Alarm Certified, Current State of Utah License, FBI background check and more. Hire someone that has experience and works for a company that can get the job done the right way. Peak Alarm has been in business for over 46 years.
