Pros

Over the past 10 years, Alarmco, Inc. has expanded and diversified beyond their initial market of Boise, ID to provide home and commercial security throughout the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico.  In 2003, they created several business partnerships with various U.S. Federal Government agencies as a certified SBA contractor.  As such, Alarmco, Inc. has established themselves as a trusted name in security systems with a secure future.  They pride themselves on their customer satisfaction and attention to specific needs.  Also, since they were approved in 2006 to run and operate their own 24-hour certified central station, you can be confident that will meet the emergency demands of their customers in a timely fashion and take full responsibility for the safety concerns of those they serve.

Cons

Since they are a smaller company and tend to focus on Idaho residents, they lack some of the resources and customer service that larger companies are able to provide.  Also, they only provide cell monitoring.  In most cases, this is a good thing as the system cannot be disabled manually through disabling local phone lines.  However, this might prove difficult for rural residents who only have access to a landline or might have poor cell coverage, and seeing as how Idaho has a higher percentage of rural residents than other states this could prove problematic for many.

Our Recommendation

If you live in Idaho or the surrounding areas and are in need of commercial or residential security system Alarmco, Inc. should be near the top of your list.  They cater to their local customers and have the only UL-certified central station in the state, meaning monitoring is done at a local level.  You can get a basic home security system at prices comparable to larger national companies and support a locally-owned business.  However, if you live outside of gem state and are worried about timely, professional customer service you might want to consider other options.


About Alarmco Inc.

Alarmco, Inc. provides a wide variety of top-of-the-line Honeywell and First Alert equipment options for your home or commercial system, ranging from video surveillance to fire and carbon monoxide alarms.  Any package you chose is completely customizable and can be either installed yourself or by the company.  If you do choose to install the system yourself the upfront costs will likely be higher (around $450) but your monthly payments will decrease by roughly $10.   Offers typically include the following equipment:

  • 3 door/window sensors
  • 1 control panel
  • 1 base station
  • 1 motion detector
  • 1 Key fob
  • 24/hr monitoring

    Our experience with Alarmco was great! They were quick to install, very professional and knowledgeable. We were happy to pay some money upfront realizing that the monthly monitoring rate was cheaper in the long run than some other alarm companies.

    So far our system has been working with no problems as the salesperson said it would. We love the fact that we can call them locally 24-7, Control our security system and thermostat from our phones. Thanks Alarmco!
