Post Alarm Systems is a locally owned family business that has been serving Southern California for over 50 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. For example, a basic cellular package with three door sensors, one motion sensor, a control panel, and a key fob would cost about $800 after installation. From there, the monthly monitoring fee is $33/month. Post Alarm uses Honeywell wireless equipment, however, landline system are available upon request.
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.
One of the biggest selling points for Post Alarm Systems is their cancellation policy. Unlike most security companies that impose large cancelation fines and leaving customers, Post Alarm Systems allows customers to cancel without any fees and only requires a 30-day notice. If customers do cancel before the 30-day notice is given then they are required to pay the last month of monitoring. This policy is unmatched in the industry and is something to consider if you are planning on moving and don’t want to get locked into a several year contract.
Although Post Alarms approach towards contracts and cancellations 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.
