Nationwide is a locally founded security business out of Colorado that has quickly grown into a major security dealer in the state. Currently, they are securing over 6,000 families and 1,000 businesses throughout the state.
Security System Overview
Nationwide is an ADT dealer out of Littleton, CO, and therefore offers many of the same packages that other ADT affiliate companies provide. Utilizing mostly Honeywell equipment, Nationwide offers both cellular and phone-line based systems that run from $99 to $499 upfront and $27.99 to $59.99/month for monitoring fees. All packages include a 36-month contract and a 90-day manufacturer warranty. If a customer purchases a package that is at least $34/month then maintenance on any malfunctioning equipment is free. The main differences between the cheaper and more expensive packages are the need for a phone-line, the ability to remotely control the system from a smart phone, and video surveillance. All packages include the following:
- Control panel
- Battery backup
- 3 door contacts
- 1 motion sensor
- Fire alarm
- Carbon monoxide detector
- Sign & stickers
- 24/hour monitoring
All of Nationwide Security’s sales, installation, and services are provided by in-house employees and not by subcontractors, plus all of their employees are required to past professional background checks. Nationwide also claims to be the only ADT dealer in Colorado that offers residential and commercial sales and promotional offers, ADT Pulse (smart phone compatibility), and ADT Companion Service.
An added benefit to contracting with Nationwide is receiving all the benefits of working with ADT. For example, ADT is America’s number one security company, has been in business since 1874, is larger than the next 99 competitors combined, has 6 redundant monitoring centers all inter-connected, and is currently monitoring over 8 million homes. This means that on a day-to-day basis your home and family will receive the best monitoring the security market has to offer.
Nationwide essentially doesn’t offer a warranty to customers unless they purchase a certain amount of equipment. Besides the 90 day manufacturer’s warranty, Nationwide only covers maintenance for customers who choose a package that is at least $33.99 a month. This type of policy is unusual in the security industry. Most companies offer either a basic minimum warranty of one year or a lifetime warranty regardless of the package chosen.
