When you need 3 bids for your security system who are the best Alarm companies to call? This is a question I hear often enough and it is very important that you call 3 companies that meet the following requirements:
A. The Security Company should be licensed with a business license and a State of Utah DOPL Burglar Alarm Company license and they should have experience in the security industry not just with residential wireless systems but in the commercial field and with hardwired systems, camera systems,fire alarm, security and access control.
B. The Security company should be insured and have liability and workers compensation insurance. DOPL requires proof of both of these policies in order to get the DOPL license.
C. The Salesmen and the installers should carry on their person the blue and white DOPL Burglar Alarm agent license that shows they are approved by DOPL and have been through the FBI background check. Otherwise I would not let them into my home or business.
D. The company should have been in business enough years to prove themselves and have a reputation one way or the other.
E. Know that all large companies will have had some complaints filed against them. The recorded complaints on the BBB site for Peak Alarm for example have all been resolved and there were only 5 in the last 3 years. Better Business Bureau www.bbb.org
F. Many companies install your security system and sign you up for a monitoring contract and imediately or shortly thereafter sell your monitoring contract to a third party company so they won't be involved on an ongoing basis. Check and find out if the company that you are interested in will be selling your monitoring contract or keeping the accounts in house.
G. Make sure the company will be using a UL listed Central Station. This insures that the dispatch center has met the highest regulations and they will have back up generators, backup receivers in case one fails and many other requirements have to be met to meet UL standards. All the companies listed here use UL listed Central Stations and they are also licensed.
