Review Last Updated: January 14, 2017

Post Alarm Systems is a locally owned family business that has been serving Southern California for over 38 years and during that time has gained a reputation as one of the top local security dealers in the area.

Security System Overview

Post Alarm Systems offers a unique approach towards their basic package which requires new customers to pay for the equipment, installation, and activation up front in exchange for a no contract agreement. Post Alarm uses Honeywell wireless equipment, however, landline system are available upon request.

The Good

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.

The Bad

Although Post Alarms approach towards contracts is unique, it might still not be worth it due to their requisite 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 Alarms 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.

The Bottom Line

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.

    I would like to mention that this is one of the worst companies that I have ever dealt with.
    I had to cancel my service since nothing was done as promised and they are extremely unorganized and overpriced. The way they deal with clients is atrocious. I did not want to listen to the bad reviews in here but now I do regret it, it could have save me a lot of trouble.

    Please avoid this company as much as possible.

    They have horrible staff and horrible services.

    If you want to avoid yourself a headache please do not hire this company. Their security staff are untrained, rude, with poor English and they do not comply by the laws of the city!
