Many times when using a larger company you will end up paying more and many times having to wait for longer periods of time for Service sometimes getting through on the phone is more difficult as well. If the larger company is more stable than the smaller companies that is another factor to be weighed when making the decision of what fire alarm to have installed.
MANY TIMES AN OWNER WILL HIRE AN ARCHITECT WHO IN TURN HIRES AND ELECTRICAL ENGINEER WHO ENDS UP DESIGNING THE FIRE ALARM SYSTEM AND MOST OF THE TIME THE SPECIFICATION BOOK WILL LIST DIFFERENT BRANDS OF FIRE ALARM OR COMPANIES THAT CAN BID ON A PROJECT. MANY OF THESE BRANDS ARE PROPRIETARY MEANING THEY ARE THE ONLY COMPANY IN THE STATE THAT CAN SELL PARTS OR SERVICE THE SYSTEM THEREFORE THE COST TENDS TO BE HIGHER. AT TIMES YOU MAY FIND ANOTHER SERVICE COMPANY FOR SOME OF THESE BRANDS BUT OFTEN THOSE COMPANIES BUY THEIR PARTS FROM THE FIRST COMPANY SO THE PRICES ARE NOT TO MUCH DIFFERENT AND SOMETIMES THEY ARE HIGHER. WHEN YOU DEAL WITH VERY LARGE COMPANIES MANY TIMES YOU END UP HAVING TO WAIT LONGER FOR SERVICE AND OFTEN YOU END UP PAYING MORE FOR SERVICE. SOME SALES PEOPLE WILL TELL YOU THE COST IS HIGHER BECAUSE THE QUALITY IS HIGHER AND IN SOME CASES THIS IS TRUE SO DOING YOUR RESEARCH IS VITAL.
Radionics is BOSCH now. http://www.boschsecurity.us is the web site. Bosch now has several different lines of equipment to meet your needs. In most areas they have an entry line product then a mid range and a high end line. Bosch offers a full line of Fire Alarm including Analog Addressable panels, Addressable only panels that are also UL Listed to combine Security and Access. Bosch offers a Full Access Control line, Camera Systems and Intrusion/Security also in entry lines, midrange and High End lines to meet most price ranges and they have a 3 year warranty.
For some small businesses having your Fire Alarm and your Security system combined can be done although it is recommended to keep them separate. DMP has a panel that can do fire and security as does Ademco and Bosch has a full line of panels that combine security, fire alarm and access as well.
There are different Central Stations in Utah and 2 of the ones that are UL listed are PEAK ALARM and AVANTGUARD. There is a requirement if you are doing monitoring for Fire Alarm that you use a UL listed Station. When a Station is UL listed it means they have jumped through many hoops including backup generators, backup receivers which normally cost over 10K each and it includes many other requirements making the Station have to be a cut above the rest.
FIRE ALARM INSPECTIONS NEED TO BE DONE BY THOSE THAT ARE CERTIFIED THROUGH THE STATE FIRE MARSHALS OFFICE AND THEY WILL HAVE AN AE NUMBER. NICET IS ANOTHER CERTIFICATION FOR NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF CERTIFYING ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGIES. THOSE CERTIFIED IN FIRE ALARM ARE EITHER NICET I,2, 3 OR 4.
Faraday is another brand of Fire Alarm and at one point Rydalch Electric was selling and servicing this brand of Fire Alarm but it has been many years since I was aware of this so this may have changed.
Secutron is another brand of Fire Alarm although I do not have information as to who the dealers are in Utah. Not to be confused with Securitron which refers to locking hardware
Look up the companies on the Better Business Bureau www.BBB.org to check complaints and their grade A through F
