Alarm Grid Does DIY Home Security RightPosted By Michael Goris
At Alarm Grid, we consider ourselves to be the industry leader in DIY home security. We strive to show all our customers that setting up a home security system is both easy and rewarding. Our company conducts certain practices that help make the DIY experience highly pleasant and totally hassle-free for everyone. With Alarm Grid, you are in complete control of your home's protection, and you and your loved ones are kept safe and sound. Let's take a look at just some of the ways that Alarm Grid does DIY home security right.
Our Monitoring Partner
To provide the best protection possible for our customers, we can't do it alone. Alarm Grid is partnered with Criticom Monitoring Services, a company that has been dedicated to protecting people since 1978. All of our customers who sign up for an alarm plan that includes central station monitoring are connected with Criticom Monitoring Services. Criticom maintains three monitoring centers across the country - in Florida, California and New Jersey. If one monitoring station is ever down, calls will be rerouted to another station. This level of redundancy ensures that our customers are always monitored and always protected. You will not find a better team in the security industry than Alarm Grid and Criticom Monitoring.
The security panels and sensors sold by Alarm Grid were all hand-picked for their ease of use. We offer wireless systems and sensors that are known for being easy for end users to install and use on their own. Many of our wireless panels come with desk mounts so that they can be rested on a table with no drilling required. Also most wireless sensors can be mounted with special double-sided adhesives, again preventing the need for drilling. By choosing a wireless system, you will also eliminate the need for running or fishing any wires. All of this makes installing a security system super easy. However, we also offer and support hardwired systems for those who choose to use them. Once you know what you're doing, you'll find that setting up these system is surprisingly simple. And if you ever need any help, our support team can assist you every step of the way.
Our Amazing Support
Alarm Grid saves customers money through our DIY approach. We do not roll any trucks, and we never charge any added fees. When a customer needs support they can reach us online or over the phone for free. Our company maintains a trusted team of security experts who are ready to help with any problems or issues that a customer may experience. We are extremely proud of our support team, and the plethora of positive reviews across the internet reflect that. Whether you need help setting up your security system or a security sensor is giving you trouble, our team will work with you every step of the way to help you solve the problem. Additionally, we also offer hundreds of FAQs and online videos to further assist you when needed.
Many other security companies use proprietary equipment that will only work with that security company. Even if the customer owns the equipment, it will be no good if they decide to leave that alarm company. At Alarm Grid, we do things a little differently. The equipment that we offer is all non-proprietary. It can be taken to any other monitoring company that will support it. Should you ever decide to leave Alarm Grid, you will already have excellent equipment to use with a different monitoring company. Plus if you come to Alarm Grid with unlocked equipment from another alarm company, then we are happy to monitor it. We always work to save our customers as much money as possible. Reusing a customer's perfectly good old equipment is just one way that we do this.
No Hidden Fees
When you sign up for Alarm Grid, what you see is what you get. We never charge our customers any hidden fees. This includes no installer fees, no activation fees, no service fees and no cancellation fees. When you sign up for monitoring, we will activate you at no charge. Since all installation is do-it-yourself, there are no installation fees with our company. If you need some extra support online or over the phone, we will provide it at no cost to you. If you decide to leave us for any reason, you will not be charged for cancellation. The only things you will ever have to pay for with Alarm Grid are your monthly monitoring expense and the cost of the non-proprietary equipment that you own outright. This level of transparency is just another factor that makes Alarm Grid great.
Alarm Grid understands that sometimes a customer needs to discontinue their service. Maybe they are moving to a new location. Maybe they have decided they no longer need home monitoring. Maybe they simply aren't happy with their monitoring. Whatever the reason, Alarm Grid allows its customers to leave at any time. They will not have to pay any cancellation fees, and any equipment they used is theirs to keep. This policy means that Alarm Grid must always work hard to maintain your trust by providing you with the best experience possible. We know that their our other choices in home security. We want to stay with Alarm Grid because you want to - not because you're locked into a ridiculous contract. The remarkable freedom from Alarm Grid is simply unrivaled in the home security industry.
Protecting your home does not have to cost you an arm and a leg. While Alarm Grid doesn't always offer the lowest monthly costs, our rates are very competitive, and the level of support you receive is unmatched. Our most popular plan is our Gold Plan. This plan includes cellular monitoring, access to Criticom Monitoring Services, remote Z-Wave home automation control, access to either Total Connect or Alarm.com and both email and text alerts. The Gold Plan costs just $35 per month, making it affordable for almost any household. And with Alarm Grid's incredible support, this is a deal that is too good to pass up. Of course, not every customer will need this level of protection. Some will need more and some will need less. We encourage everyone to take a look at our Monitoring Page so that they can decide which deal is the best for them.
