As a tailored security solutions provider, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to keeping people and property safe. We prefer to assess each situation, then combine a range of services to provide the best possible solution for YOUR particular needs.

We live here, too.

Founded in 2003, Urban Alarm began with a vision to create a security company that’s invested in its community and the daily lives of the people in it, not just with the equipment installed in their living spaces.

Over the years, we’ve partnered with athletic organizations to sponsor little league baseball teams, delivered campus safety lectures to local schools, and been an active presence at several area farmer’s markets. Our recognizable fleet of black UA vehicles in your neighborhood serve as a reminder that we’re working to make your community a safer place.

A full range of security solutions.

Urban Alarm provides security system design, installation, supply and maintenance – this includes video monitoring, alarm systems and monitoring, life safety systems and monitoring, door access systems, telephone entry systems and remote video patrol for offices, campuses, multi-unit commercial properties, and of course, high-end residential properties. For more details, see our Services page.

The Kastle connection.

Urban Alarm is a "dba" of Kastle Systems LLC. In December 2017, we were acquired by Kastle – becoming an independently operated business unit of one of the most highly regarded D.C.-based security services companies. Kastle is consistently ranked the #1 Security Provider in D.C. by the Washington Business Journal and is on CIO Review’s 2018 List of Top Physical Security Providers in the U.S.

Our leadership.

We are proud and active board members of the Washington D.C. Police Foundation – an organization that works to support key public safety programs as identified by the Chief of Police of the Metropolitan Police Department. We provide direct support to MPD, as well as engage directly in public safety policy initiatives for the city. It’s another great way to serve our mix of institutional, commercial and residential customers.
