  • Consistent Professional Monitoring
  • Flexible Plans
  • PDA Integration

Consistent Professional Monitoring

Urban Alarm monitors all home security systems via internet from a central location.

Their two generators ensure service is consistent and uninterrupted even during inclement weather conditions.

All equipment is UL listed, meaning it meets/exceeds industry standards for fire protective and burglary signaling.

Using a wireless gateway module, Urban Alarm can continuously monitor your residence(s) even if you lose power and phone service.

Flexible Plans

You have the flexibility of setting up any plan you like without long-term commitments. Pricing is clear and very accessible at any income level.

Special services include Urban Vacation Watch: Urban Alarm will literally visit your residence while you're away, collect your mail, water your plants, etc. No setup is too abstract or unattainable. Other standout security services include artwork protection and full video surveillance of your home or remote studio.

PDA Integration

PDA integration allows you to personally oversee and control multiple security systems via your mobile device.


  • Lacks Equipment Information

Lacks Equipment Information

The only potential drawback for prospective customers is Urban Alarm's lack of specific info about equipment on their website.

They claim they can install new security systems, but the exact nature and hardware/software comprising these systems isn't stated outright or even loosely explained on their website.

Instead, they have a lead capture section in which they exhort interested clients to call for a free consultation or fill out a 'Request Information' contact form.

Our Recommendation

Urban Alarm's unblemished customer service track record and enormous variety of simple-to-use, effective home security setups make them worth the free consultation they offer. Their advantage over other security companies is their cost-effective hands-on approach to ensuring clients and their properties are monitored and safe around the clock.
