Although Five Alarm is a young company, they have already established themselves as a leader in home security for Southern California. As a local, family-owned and operated business Five Alarm protects families, homes, and businesses throughout the region.

Pros

Five Alarm employees meet a stringent set of requirements set by the California Department of Consumer Affairs and have been background checked by both the FBI and the Department of Justice. Furthermore, Five Alarm uses the most up-to-date Honeywell equipment and claims to be the first Honeywell Authorized Security Dealer in the United States.

For new customers, the most noteworthy policy offered is the lifetime warranty provided that comes with all systems. Most security dealers only offer a 90 labor and a one-year parts warranty, which shows that Five Alarm provides more for their customers than the average dealer.

Cons

There is a huge pricing discrepancy between the normal price and the price that includes the ability to monitoring your system from a smartphone, which is double the original (though the company has not confirmed this). This seems exorbitant when compared to most companies. Typically, other security dealers offer this service to customers for a $5-$10 monthly fee, not $35. It seems that much of their revenue is earned with this policy and it could be a concern for homeowners who want that service without the higher costs.

Our Recommendation

Five Alarm is a quality Southern California company that is up-and-coming in the security world. Their general prices are affordable and they have nothing but positive reviews from customers and review sites. If you live in the area and are looking for a good deal on a leased system then we suggest giving Five Alarm a call. View our top-rated companies


About Five Alarm Security

Five Alarm offers a simple approach towards home security that utilizes wireless Honeywell and First Alert equipment. According to their sales representative, a new customer can purchase a 100 percent wireless system. However, if you would like to be able to control the system entirely from your smartphone then the monthly fee increases to $70. Keep in mind that for the life of the initial contract, Five Alarm retains ownership of the system until the agreement is over, at which point the homeowners then obtain the rights to the system and can continue to monitor with Five Alarm on a month-to-month basis. Each new security system comes with the following:

  • Control panel
  • Siren
  • 3 door/window sensors
  • Motion sensor
  • Backup battery
  • Sigh & Stickers
  • 24/hr monitoring
  • Lifetime warranty
