  • Customizable Contract
  • Leadership and Experience

Customizable Contract

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.

Leadership and Experience

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.


  • Cancellation Policy

Cancellation Policy

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

Our Recommendation

If you're looking to buy a quality home security system and you're on a tight budget this is the exact type of company that you consider.  With their customizable packages and high-end equipment, it is likely that you will be satisfied with their services and cost structures.
