The Good

We found that Triad offers one of the most customizable service platforms available. Along with their locksmith services, they also offer the following services for customers:

On their website, we found that the intrusion alarms included Honeywell, Bosch, and others. Sensors are connected to a control unit via hardwire or narrowband RF signal. The most common door and window sensors that Triad provides for home situations are motion via passive infrared and there are pet sensitive monitors available. Triad typically installs both cellular and POTS in high-end residential and commercial environments for customers. Triad’s systems automatically send regular checkup signals to the monitoring station to indicate that things are “okay.”

There were several case studies listed on the website that described some of the installation processes that Triad used. For the door locks that required keys, Triad suggested using Medeco keys and locks, since this key lock manufacturer is the only company that requires the homeowner’s permission to install locks and keys.

The Bad

We had a hard time determining the cost and startup fee of installing a Triad system in a home. On their website, they don’t provide a lot of information about contract information, monthly pricing information, and how much a leased service costs. There is a lot of information that describes why a client should get a system, but not a lot of specifics on the components of a home security system.

We were also somewhat concerned about the “high-end” nature of Triad’s products and services. The high number of home security and commercial products might overwhelm a customer in a small home.

We would like more transparency with prices. The dealer was hesitant to give us a “complete” price range before setting foot in our home.

The Bottom Line

We find that using this company for smaller homes or residences might drive up the cost a little bit. Triad is a good fit for businesses and commercial locations, too. Clients might benefit from the use of their video monitoring and DVR services.

Are there any inaccuracies in this review? We take our accuracy very seriously and would love your feedback. Give feedback here.
