Pros

Although Per Mar’s headquarters are located in Davenport, Iowa, the company has branch offices that range across the midwestern U.S., with locations in Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, and Indiana. If you are looking for a security company in the Midwest, there is a good chance that you’ll find a location nearby. Per Mar offers an array of security services, including mobile access to your security system through your smartphone, which means your home and office will never go unprotected and has a variety of product styles to help match the interior and exterior decor of your home or office.

Cons

Per Mar Security has a lot of information that is difficult to find. For example, cancellation, moving options, contract length, price, and installation costs are all undisclosed.

Our Recommendation

Per Mar Security Services is a well-established business that seeks to accommodate any security request or concern, though its lack of transparency concerning service details is troubling. Overall, the extensive selection of services and products offered by Per Mar seem to be worth exploring.

    Very dissatisfied with camera systems. Chose Per Mar due to local presence. 2 outdoor cameras plus doorbell camera. 2 outdoor cameras trigger 99+ notifications every night. Tree leaves blowing in wind trigger notification. Door bell camera notification alerts 2 minutes after door bell is pushed. Technichian came back at our request and said everything was working as intended. I regret the purchase and will cancel at end of contract and go with a different security system.

    Our technician that does our semi annual testing is great. She sets up her own appointments and make adjustments if necessary. The reports are sent out quickly also. I have 100% trust in her ability to perform the tasks as required by the state of Wisconsin.
    The rating of a 9 is based more on her productivity and professsionalism, as Per Mar also has monitoring and a service departments.
    The monitoring department seems to be understaffed as I could be on hold at times.
    I’ve had problems with our fire alarm panel in the past, and there are many kinds, so I’ve decided to reach out to specific alarm electricians for repair work.
