Many of the TOP TEN, TOP FIVE or BEST ALARM COMPANY 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.

Larry Love has over 20 years in the industry and can help you with all of your alarm, camera, access control and fire alarm needs. Peak Alarm is a certified Mircom dealer.

Be careful when looking at the PAID ads and websites because several of those companies have over 1000 complaints with the Better Business Bureau but because they paid for the ad now they are on the top 5 list or the top 10 list. Two of our competitors have over 3800 complaints that have been filed with the Better Business Bureau in the last 3 years. Online complaints tell a completely different story about companies. It is true every company including Peak Alarm will have some online complaints so look at the www.bbb.org web site to check out who has filed complaints with the Better Business Bureau because each and every one of those complaints gets investigated on both sides.

Peak Alarm http://www.peakalarm.com/ Call Larry Love at (801) 428 1384 for pricing security systems, fire alarms, access control, camera systems and 24 hour monitoring from our UL listed Central Station.

Peak Alarm has stepped up their advertising so you will see TV commercials, Radio spots and even electronic billboard ads for Peak Alarm. The new look of our website is very professional and after more than 47 years in business Peak Alarm is not only growing but improving as well.

Peak take complaints seriously and I met with the owner and the CEO of the company and they review these comments and use them as a way to improve what we are currently doing. Peak employees over 300 people locally and yet we are still a small company in many ways because you can still call our company (801) 486 7231 and get a live person quite quickly. We pride ourselves by striving to take care of our customers.

Peak Alarm has only had 1 complaint filed with the Better Business Bureau in the last 3 years. Many of our competitors have hundreds and there are a couple of our competitors that have more than 3000 complaints. So be sure to check the www.bbb.org before buying any security system.

Peak Alarm also does not do Credit Checks. Peak does not give away free equipment either and that is why we have been in business so long. You may get a song and a dance from other companies claiming to give you something FREE but the truth is that equipment is not free, you will either pay more per month or you will pay for a longer period of time. So if the install is free compare against a normal Peak Alarm plan and you will see that we measure up in many ways that others don’t. Often other companies will run a credit check, they will also charge you more than $50 per month for normal monitoring services when Peak can give you additional services that other companies can for the same or for less money per month.

Beware of Monitoring companies that have very low cost plans per month because often they are computerized, or they are out of state or out of the country and the person calling you does not know anything about Salt Lake, Utah or Idaho when Peak Employees do. Peak Alarm is the only full service alarm company that has a full service Guard/Patrol company as well so when the Police do not respond, we do. Peak can normally get to your home in the Salt Lake area within 15 minutes and if the Police do respond in your area many times they will get there in 30 or even take over an hour.

What’s interesting or alarming about alarms?

Just plain good

Just plain good

Often people think of alarm systems as alerting the police or the fire department of a burglar or of a fire alarm and that is true although now they do so much more. Here are a few examples of what current alarm systems can do for you. What type of services can Peak Alarm provide?

Commercial and Residential Services both for the homeowner, contractor or business owner. Design, installation, testing, training and monitoring. Phone line monitoring, Radio monitoring on our own frequency licensed by the FCC, Cellular monitoring & Internet monitoring

REMOTE GARAGE DOOR
1. Did you for get to shut your garage door or your not sure if you did? Open your alarm app check and go ahead and close the door from anywhere.

REMOTE CONTROL OF LIGHTING
2. Did you mean to turn on or turn off a light before you left the house? Do it from your app or have the lights randomly turn on and off when you are not there or even when you are there. Have them turn on when it gets dark and then shut off at 10PM or 11PM and turn back on at 5AM or 6AM and then turn off at 7AM

REMOTE THERMOSTATS & CAMERAS
3. When you are on vacation do you worry about the temperature in your home? If you have fish or other pets do you worry about them when you are gone?
Use the alarm app to adjust the temperature up or down or just check it. Use the app to look in on your pets or children with cameras that we can install in strategic places.

REMOTE VIDEO DOORBELL
4. Have you ever wanted to know who came to your door while you were away? If UPS or the Mail main were to come to your home while you were gone how cool would it be to answer the door with a video phone and even let them into the garage to leave a package and then shut the garage? Now you can with the SKYBELL or Alarm.com Video Bell. View and talk to those that come to your door. It alerts you and you can tell them you can’t come to the door and they will have no idea whether you are home or not.

HEAT SMOKE FREEZE, CO (Carbon Monoxide) and WATER SENSORS
5. If you are on vacation and it is winter your pilot light or the furnace may stop working. If the home drops below freezing the pipes could freeze and even cause expensive flooding when the thaw back out. Get heat, smoke, freeze and water sensors installed on your security system to alert you to these issues. This will end up saving you in the long run and they are not that expensive to have installed. If the basement floods it will cost you thousands of dollars. If the pipes freeze it can also cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars. If the house burns down you or your family could be hurt or killed. Often smoke will overcome people while they sleep so having smoke alarms that alert the fire department is much better than just the smokes that wake you up (which often don’t wake you up) CO sensors can also be added to your security system and having the smokes, heat, freeze, Co and water sensors does not cost you anything additional to monitor them per month. The installation will cost but the monthly monitoring will not. If you are paying for normal phone line monitoring you will need to add a cellular and elite control (interactive arm/disarm) to view your alarms over your smart phone. The world of alarms is changing.

LOCKS
6. Do you worry that if your children have lost 3 or 4 or more keys that someone might find one of them and get into your home or even their friends might? With a keyless entry lock your children or employees can access your home or business without keys. In a business we install prox card readers in homes we install a keyless entry lock which allows them to enter without a key and you can even unlock the home using one of these locks and your smart phone.

MOTIONS, GLASS BREAK, SHOCK, DOOR AND WINDOW STATUS SENSORS and Monitored 24 hour lockdown status to your gun rooms or datavaults.
7. Peak Alarm can install all types of security for your business or home including the above normal items associated with security or any of the ones we mentioned at first. Call Larry Love 801 428 1384 Larry@peakalarm.com http://www.peakalarm.com

ACCESS CONTROL FOR BUSINESS SITES
8. Do away with keys and have Peak Alarm install Peakedge access control. You can access the system online and add and delete users. When someone quits or is fired you cancel their card access instead of trying to get keys back from them or trying to rekey your facility.

CAMERAS
9. Peak Alarm can install several different types of camera systems. Call Larry and he can come by your facility or home to go over the different options. You can access these cameras using your smart phone to view your home, business or pets remotely from anywhere.

INTERCOM
10. Peak will install a weatherproof intercom and door release system on your home or business so you can talk to those that come to the door.

PERS
11. Peak can install a system in your home or business with medical alert buttons that you wear on your wrist, around your next or mounted buttons. These can be programed as panic buttons to call the police or medical buttons to alert a family member or alert emergency services. Yes this can be used if you have fallen down and cannot get up. The buttons are water resistant.

VIDOFIED
12. Peak Alarm offers special services for situations where you need our dispatchers to verify if the intruder is an animal or a human. This is great for empty buildings, car lots, tow lots and much more. Call Larry for more information. This system does not require power to work but will transfer pictures over the internet to the dispatchers upon alarm and they will decide to send police or not.

The truth about security monitoring

This is real fish just not crab. It is quick and with rice and some butter or a sauce it's great. Also in soup or stir fry

This is real fish just not crab. It is quick and with rice and some butter or a sauce it’s great. Also in soup or stir fry

What is the lowdown on security system or fire alarm system monitoring? Call Larry Love 801 428 1384 at Peak Alarm for more information Larry@peakalarm.com

$26-$32 per month for monitoring over analog phone lines. (The concern is that normally analog lines cost about $40 per month each line)
$35-$45 per month for cellular monitoring for security systems
$48 per month for high supervision cellular for fire alarm (no phonelines required) These dial out every 6 minutes
$41 per month for AES Radio monitoring
$5 extra for smart phone arm/disarm
$ extra for repair or extended warranty starting at $7 per month for small systems

When you pay around $14 per month for central station monitoring often you are giving up dealing with a live person or a local company and often the service you get is below par.

Peak Alarm is the only Alarm company in Utah that has their own UL listed Central Station, a full Guard and Patrol Division and same day or next day service.

There are other companies out there that have over 3,000 complaints on the BBB in the last 3 years and that is concerning. Many of these companies are currently being sued or have been in litigation with several states. Many of the companies that appear in the top 5 or top 10 alarm companies online are some of the worst companies as far as BBB reviews and customer reviews. Check before you buy.

Peak Alarm holds the UL2050 listing for installation and monitoring

Peak has been in business since 1969 and has 4 offices to serve you.

Peak has a UL listed Central Station

Peak Alarm also has a full Guard and Patrol Division with unarmed and armed guards.

UL2050 installations are a bit different than normal security system installations:

1. We install an approved alarm system that will communicate using encrypted signals. Normally Bosch or DMP
2. Peak ALarm will install the entire system in CONDUIT with BOXES and Tampers in junction boxes were required. We grind the screws off the conduit after we install it.
3. Our installers will put tampers behind the alarm can and inside the alarm enclosure to sent an alarm if opened or pulled off the wall.
4. Motions in many of the facilities are required below and above the drop tile ceiling to meet UL2050
5. In most of our installations we install a vibration sensor inside the panel which will trip if there is drilling or tampering with the can.
6. Motions need to be in every area except restrooms. You can’t take 3 steps without setting the alarm off.
7. A UL2050 installation also needs to be monitored by a UL2050 Central Station and Serviced by a company that is certified.
8. With the monitoring schedules and openings and closings need to be programmed in as part of the how the system is configured.
9. Special BMS Balanced Magnetic Switches that hold the High Security listing need to be used and these contacts cost over 10 times as much as a normal security contact.

There are very few companies in Utah that can provide these services. you can look on the Official UL Website website for certified companies.

Configuring Intrusion systems and Access Control

Example of how the Security and Access Control Systems are set up here at Peak Alarm

Here at Peak Alarm we the following configuration of systems that are set up independently of each other:

A.ACCESS CONTROL LIMITING ACCESS INTO THE BUILDING AND ALLOWING ACCESS OF CERTAIN PEOPLE INTO SPECIFIC AREAS ON TIME SCHEDULES.
B.SECURITY (INTRUSION) SYSTEMS LIMITING WHO CAN DISARM SPECIFIC AREAS DURNING SPECIFIC TIMES AND DAYS.
C.FIRE ALARM INCLUDING SMOKE DETECTION,SPRINKLER MONITORING,PULL STATIONS AND OTHER DETECTION 24/7
D.DIGITAL HIGH DEFINITION CAMERAS THAT ARE REMOTELY MONITORED AND RECORDED.
E.INTERCOM SYSTEMS

1. Peak Alarm has 2 large buildings that both have Fire Alarm, Access Control, Intrusion and Cameras.

2. Security Systems in both buildings are partitioned and manager codes can disarm anytime and other codes are limited to areas and specific times. An example of this is that Sales People cannot disarm the installation department, the shop or the accounting office but they can only disarm the sales offices. The installation department is similar that they can come in early but cannot disarm the other areas but only installation and the warehouse shop area. Some entry level or residential security systems do not have the ability to partition into areas and many of them are limited on how many users you can have so do some research before you buy so you can have a professional company do the installation the proper way.

3. Independent of the security system is the access control system. Prox cards that have been issued will allow you to open specific doors in specific areas but then you need a security code to disarm those areas. Some companies say “It would be easier if we could read our prox card and have it disarm the security system” and yes that would make things easier for you and for those trying to defeat your system if they found a prox card. It is best to keep these two systems separate. Peak Alarm can install a system that is integrated but if something happens to that system both your access control and your security system could be compromised.

4. In a separate 24 hour manned area Peak Alarm has a bank of cameras that monitored all four of our locations. This central station has bulletproof glass, a man trap. (An entry where you enter into a small hallway and cannot go out or in when one of the doors is open without approval from those inside.) The access, security, fire alarm and the cameras are monitored from this central station as well as thousands of our accounts. Peak Alarm has a large Guard Division both armed and unarmed to respond to alarms and customer concerns. One of our most valuable services is when we get temperature alarms from either vacation homes or homes of people that are on vacation. This can indicate that the heat has gone off and we can get a guard up there to help get it back on before the pipes freeze and or burst, this avoids expensive repairs to a home. Smoke Detectors are not normally tied to the security systems in most homes so we recommend that you install additional detection and we have smoke detectors that detect smoke, heat and also low temperatures.

5. Every night our main server is backed up in the other building and the server in the other building backs up to the one in the main building.

6. We have emergency generators that will kick on within seconds in a power failure and batteries that hold the power so there is no delay or loss of data in our central station. Our dispatchers will only know there has been a power outage because of an emergency light that lights up.
