It's not everyday that you will get a
company to tell you the truth about
their products and their competitors
purely for the benefit of the
consumer, but today, I am going to
do just that. Today, I am going to
give you an inside look at the Best Security
Companies in the industry today. You deserve to know
what you are buying when you buy a security alarm and
I know that Crime Fighters of Atlanta stands up next to
the industries top competitors.
When you think of home security what one name
comes to mind first? For most people that would be ADT.
Does that mean that they are the best? No, it just means
that they have deep advertising pockets that have created
a recognizable brand. ADT is a good company that has
trained monitoring station employees, solid installers,
and uses brand equipment.
However, it is using its marketing presence to charge
customers more upfront, monthly, and ongoing cost. The
consumer that goes with ADT in the end is paying more
to be part of a brand. So the next time you see ADT
advertising you will know that your alarm dollars are
hard at work.
Protection One is another great company that has been
around for a long time, but I would say that its not
keeping up with the times. In all my years in the industry
I have not seen Protection One advance as a leader in
technology or monitoring experience. Protection One
seems to be a part of the middle ground pack, but it
charges ADT sky high prices. Again, your paying more
for the same services and equipment.
Vivint is an excellent company that has become the
leader in security alarm and home automation
advancement over the last decade. Vivint is bringing
a new level of home automation and security to the
consumer. They offer an advanced technology that
encompasses solar power panels, home automation,
and burglar deterrents. While they offer a great product
they are not for everyone. They're services don't come
cheap and can be downright unaffordable.
On the other end of the spectrum are the many DIY
security alarm companies that have popped up over
the last couple of years such as Simplisafe and Safemart.
While I am all for DIY projects at home to save money,
when it comes to home security it's best to leave it to the
experts. We have many customers who figured the the
DIY route would be an easy solution to home security.
After they bought products and attempted an installation
they realized there's more to home security then plug
and play alarm equipment bought on the internet.
Now, that leads to our company, Crime Fighters of
Atlanta. We are a local, Atlanta, home security alarm
company that works as an installing dealer for
Monitronics security monitoring. What does that mean?
You may not realize this, but many alarm companies are
actually dealers for bigger alarm brands. This is true for
companies like ADT, Protection One, Guardian, and
Security Networks to just name a few. These larger
companies are comprised of a network of dealers
that work together nationally to sell and install
alarm systems in their local areas then the
monitoring is handled by the parent company
which in our case is Monitronics.
This dealer network systems give the consumer both a
local, hands-on company to take care of their needs as
well as a national company to turn to. Our customers with
Monitronics receive professional, experienced alarm
installations with easy, local service assistance and are
monitored by Monitronics UL station that has received
countless awards for response time and customer service.
Our association with Monitronics also provides us with
buying power with large national suppliers such as
Honeywell and 2-GIG that translate into advanced
security products at a discounted price for our
Because we are an independent dealer for Monitronics,
our pricing is guided by our parent company but decided
upon by our local market. Therefore, we can provide the
best possible monthly rates, contract terms, and installs
to our customers. Unlike our competitors we have the
flexibility to assist all homes and businesses with their
security needs by designing products and prices that fit
their budget. The best part is, we'll provide installation so
no one has to fuss with a DIY alarm project.
There are hundreds are alarm companies on the market
today offering great products and services to consumers. I
only touched on a few today. Feel free to email or call
about any company your considering. Not all brands are
in all markets, but Crime Fighters of Atlanta is always
happy to share our two cents on the companies we are
familiar with. Always remember to do your research and
take your time deciding. Home security is a necessary
and important part of keeping you and your family safe.
