Matson Alarm is one of the only companies that allow customers to fully customize their contract and monthly monitoring fees.  With this policy, there is no need to get locked into a long agreement that might be difficult to fulfill.  For example, if you know you won't be living in an area for longer than a year, you can sign a year contract and then cut ties at the end of the 12 months.  Typically, this type of policy is not offered, as most companies would like you to stay with them for as long as possible.  Also, with their long-standing reputation as a leader in home security for the Bakersfield, CA area you can trust that your home and family is their number one priority.


One of the only noteworthy downsides to Matson is their cancelation policies.  If you buy one of their systems and decide to ditch it early you are required to pay the remaining balance in full.  However, this is partially mitigated by the fact that they allow you to customize your contract upfront, so if you know going into it how long you want the system then this shouldn't be a problem

Matson Alarm has provided my homes' security systems since we built our dream home in 1985. After three houses and many years later we would't still consider working with any other firm.

My name is Dennis Corsaro of Corsaro's Family Pizza in Chowchilla. After a customer accidentally destroyed our front entrance, we called Matson to assess our system to make the necessary repairs. Our problem began with s lack of communication on when repairs would be made. I succeeded in contacting the a/r manager, a young lady named Trina. A very strong link in the Matson chain! She smoothed my problems out immediately, kept me informed of progress in finding s special part we needed. I have been a Matson customer for over 25 years and have never been treated better by any purveyors I have come in contact with in my 47 years in business. Thank you Trina!!! A
