Alarm Specialists Overview

alarmspecialist-logoSince 1975 Alarm Specialists, Inc. has been providing residential and commercial security systems to the Westchester, Rockland, and Fairfield counties. The company manages everything from design to installation of security as well as fire monitoring systems. They take pride in customizing each package for their customers to suit their unique needs and requirements. Their specialties include intrusion alarms, fire and sprinkler alarms, card access control, elevator and equipment monitoring, closed circuit television, and photo identification badging. The company features professionally licensed technicians who can design and install security systems to meet the requirements of the highest industry standards. Alarm Specialists is based in White Plains, NY, and performs their own 24 hour monitoring services. They also feature environmental and life safety monitoring which detects fire, temperature, and flooding, and this can reduce insurance premiums for many companies who choose to install these systems.

Alarm Specialists Reviews

The reviews for Alarm Specialists is really very good. Customers seem quite pleased with the customer service, trained professionals, timely installation, and fantastic maintenance services. Even though the Alarm Specialists website does not note how much their services cost, there are some mentions in reviews that the price is a bit high. The only way to know for sure is with a home evaluation. Customers seem to appreciate that Alarm Specialists provides both wired and wireless security systems, as these days there are many people who choose to no longer have a landline. They also seem to be very helpful on the phone, and customers note that it’s not difficult at all to get a real person to speak to. As with any security company, you should be armed with questions when the technician shows up to design your system. You need to know what you’re paying for installation, whether or not you own the equipment or if you’re leasing it, and whether or not the warranty is as long as your contract length. If the warranty is shorter then you’re going to want to extend it by paying a monthly fee, and this is going to jack up your price. But all in all, customers say that the systems that Alarm Specialists install are very easy to operate and maintain, and that the equipment is quite sound. If you live in the counties that Alarm Specialists services, it would be a good idea to give this company a try and get your home or business protected from theft and intrusion.

Alarm Specialists Equipment

Unfortunately Alarm Specialists does not mention what brand of equipment they install in their customers homes, but we do know that they provide both wireless and wired systems. They have a whole host of other equipment aside from security systems, and this includes fire and carbon monoxide detectors, access control equipment, surveillance cameras, elevator monitoring equipment, and so much more. With this comprehensive selection of equipment, it would be nice if the company mentioned where they’re getting their equipment from, as this would better inform the customer about the quality of the systems they use. That being said, this does seem to be a fine company and it seems as though their equipment is quite sound. Because it’s all UL listed, you can pretty much be guaranteed that it’s high in quality and on-par with all industry standards. Be sure to inquire during your home evaluation as to the warranty length on equipment, as it’s quite common that this warranty is not as long as the contract length.

Alarm Specialists Home Security Packages

alarmspecialistAlarm Specialists provides home security packages with customized systems that are UL certified and designed from scratch. All systems also comply with the NFPA and state regulations of New York. No phone is required, so if you don’t have a landline you can still have a wireless system installed. With the basic home security system that is designed for you, you can then add additional features such as sprinkler supervision, card and keyless entry, as well as access control. Additional features include carbon monoxide monitoring and surveillance cameras. There’s little information on the Alarm Specialist website about how much their basic package costs to install and monitor. It seems as though price is going to vary greatly since all of the systems are so customized and different.
