Alarmco Inc. was established in 1985 and began servicing local commercial and residential markets in the Boise, Idaho market. In 2003, Alarmco, Inc began to service the U.S. Government facilities.
Security System Overview
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 chose to install the system yourself the upfront costs will be higher (around $450) but your monthly payments will decrease by about $10. However, by far the simplest route to take is their free system offer which costs $220 for installation and requires a 3 – 5 year contract. This offer includes the following equipment:
- 3 door/window sensors
- 1 control panel
- 1 base station
- 1 motion detector
- 1 Key fob
- 24/hr monitoring
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, as illustrated by the fact that they have zero complaints recorded by the Better Business Bureau (BBB). 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 service.
While Alarmco, Inc. doesn’t have any negative reports on the BBB, this could be in part to their small client base and relatively small area of emphasis. 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 system cannot be disabled manually through disabling local phone lines. However, this might prove difficult for rural residents who only have access to a land line 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. Lastly, their cancelation policies require that the customer pay the remaining balance in full. New customers who cancel could potentially be left with a large outstanding balance on a system that they are not utilizing.
