If you are interested in combining your home security and home automation systems, we recommend you work with a sales representative to ensure you purchase compatible equipment.
Alarmguard Security provides professional monitoring at a U.L.-listed station. Professional monitoring services do require a monthly fee. However, the monitoring center will contact authorities for you when your alarm is triggered. This helps to minimize any potential loss due to burglary, fire, or other emergencies.
The company’s website states there are “no long-term contracts” associated with its monitoring services. However, it does not provide any further information about contracts. We encourage you to speak with a sales representative for more detail.
It is not uncommon for home security companies not to list any pricing or contract information on their websites. You will need to speak with an Alarmguard Security representative in order to get this type of information. We encourage you to specifically ask about the following subjects:
A major complaint among home security customers is feeling they were deceived into signing long-term contracts and dealing with difficult cancellation processes. We strongly encourage you to read any contracts thoroughly before signing. Look specifically for the length of the contract, what the cancellation process entails, and what fees are associated with cancelling your service.
Reading contracts can be a tedious process, but it will save you a lot of frustration in the long run. Don’t hesitate to ask for clarification on any terms that are unclear.
Alarm Guard Securty’s website does not provide any information on installation and monitoring options. There are indications that the company only offers professional installation, however, nothing is directly stated. The company offers cellular and radio backup for its security systems. This limits the need for drilling and hard wiring, which usually makes the installation process simpler.
However, we encourage you to ask a company representative for details on the installation process so you know what to expect if you decide to purchase a security system.
