Top Ranked by Security Dealer Magazine

Post Alarm Systems is consistently ranked as one of the Top 100 Security Companies in the Nation by SDM (Security Dealer Magazine). They hire industry experts and require that all personnel are pre-employment polygraphed and drug tested.


  • Must Purchase All Equipment Upfront

Must Purchase All Equipment Upfront

Although Post Alarm's approach towards contracts is unique, it might still not be worth it due to their requirements of needing to buy all the equipment upfront.

For many customers, fronting close to a thousand dollars for a home security system is not an option and Post Alarm Systems does not offer customers the option to take on a contract and pay more month to month.

Therefore, if you do not have the cash then buying a system through them isn't even an option.

Our Recommendation

Overall, Post Alarms is a quality company with decades of experience serving the people of Southern California.

If you live in the region, have enough capital to buy all the equipment upfront, or just don't want to sign a multi-year contract then Post Alarms would be a good choice. 

However, if you cannot afford to pay for everything upfront and would like to pay for the system over a few years we suggest you look at other home security providers.
