Many alarm companies today install proprietary systems. This means the owner has no option when it comes to choosing what alarm company will be able to service and add to his alarm equipment. In essence, you’re stuck with them unless you want to replace your control panel, keypads and possibly many other pieces of equipment included in your system. While we strive to keep our customers by giving excellent service, we don’t want to keep our customers by force; and therefore, Alarm Speciality uses name brand equipment that is available to, and easily maintained by other alarm companies if the owner chooses.

In today’s business environment, a security system has become a necessity. Updated fire codes are demanding increased levels of life safety protection and in many cases a fire system is no longer an option, but a requirement. How do you keep up with what’s required, and how do you find out what your options are?  An Alarm Speciality Systems Engineer will make a personal visit to your business, discuss your needs and what you want the system to do for you, and then explain to you how the local code requirements affect your situation based upon your business location, and type of occupancy.

What are some of your options? 

A basic security system can provide limited protection and may include door and interior motion detection. More inclusive systems can include window protection, and additional glass break detection.

Alarm Speciality can incorporate fire alarm equipment along with your burglary system. Our installation teams keep up to date on the latest requirements and techniques in order to provide you the system suited to your specific needs.

As a UL listed company under Fire Alarm Service – Local Company, Alarm Speciality has been approved to install UL fire alarm systems with contracted UL monitoring. In order to receive this approval, UL personnel inspected several of our installations; our paperwork and field service techniques were also evaluated.

Our systems are also capable of supervising the arming and disarming of your security system. Active supervision includes notifying you or your representative when your alarm system is not turned on (armed) or turned off (disarmed) according to the schedule you have provided us. With Passive supervision arming and disarming signals are logged as received and a report is generated monthly, providing you with a history of the activity.

24 hour remote station alarm monitoring is available over existing phone lines. Don’t have a traditional phone line? Cellular monitoring is also available. Cellular monitoring works over a channel of the cellular telephone network that is not used by cellular telephones. An additional device wired to your alarm control panel transmits alarm signals over this cellular network.  In either case, once your alarm signal is received, our operators will contact the appropriate authorities. For our UL fire alarm customers, Alarm Speciality has contracted with a UL monitoring facility to handle your monitoring.

There are many reasons to consider installing an alarm system in your home – peace of mind, remote supervision, and protection. Many insurance companies offer a discount on homeowner’s insurance.

With today’s technology, installing a system in your home is easier than ever, and there are many options. A hardwired system connects the various pieces of your system with low voltage wire. Typically this type of system is installed so that no wires are visible. If hiding the wiring is not an option, and based on your system design, a wireless system can be installed. With a wireless system, each detection device is powered by batteries, and communicates with the system’s control panel using radio frequencies. Many systems use a combination of hardwired and wireless components. An Alarm Speciality Systems Engineer will design a system that will best suit your individual needs.

Some things to think about: Do you want to use your system while you are at home, or only while you are away? Do you have pets? Are you away from your home for extended periods of time? Does a member of your household have a medical condition? As you can see, there are many options available for your consideration and convenience.
Panic and medical emergency buttons can be either hand held, clipped to a belt, or worn as a pendant or watch.

Keypads/Key fobs. You can arm and disarm your system using traditional keypads installed at strategic locations, or you can carry or wear a wireless arming/disarming key fob.  Wireless devices come in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles, including wristwatches.

Fire protection can be added to your burglary system through the addition of smoke and heat detectors among other fire alarm initiating and indicating devices. If you have non-electric heating (such as gas and oil) or combustible gas devices in your home, you should also know that carbon monoxide detectors are available and can be monitored as well.

24 hour remote station alarm monitoring is available over existing phone lines. Don’t have a traditional phone line? Cellular monitoring is also available. Cellular monitoring works over a channel of the cellular telephone network that is rarely used by cellular telephones. An additional device wired to your alarm control panel transmits alarm signals over this cellular network.  In either case, once your alarm signal is received, our operators will contact the appropriate authorities.
