Alarm Installation and 24/7 monitoring (optional wireless for backup or primary)
Urban Alarm offers flexible and complete solutions for your alarm system and its monitoring. We can install a new system in your business or take over monitoring for an existing system. We work with industry best practices so you have a cost-effective, reliable, and easy to use solution to your security needs. A security system is only useful if it is installed properly, properly maintained, and used consistently. All monitoring is performed by our fully redundant central station with highly trained safety professionals. All equipment and monitoring is UL Listed meaning it has passed a rigorous audit by an independent third-party.
Same Day Service Response Guarantee (in qualifying zip codes)
Your system is useless if it is not working. One of the biggest complaints we hear about security companies is their lack of prompt responsiveness. With that in mind, our guarantee is that for service calls received by 9AM on business days, you will see us the same day. For calls after 9AM you are guaranteed a visit the next business day (although we will strive to be there the same day, if possible). Should we fail to meet this guarantee, we will waive our $85 service call fee.
(This guarantee is offered to the following zip codes and we plan to expand the coverage in the future: 20007, 20008, 20015, 20016, 20815, 20816)
Video Surveillance and Monitoring
Urban Alarm installs and maintains hybrid analog CCTV systems integrated with digital video recorders (DVRs) as well as pure IP based video systems running entirely over local and wide area networks. Video systems are a critical tool for securing a commercial, retail, or industrial property and can be the basis of investigation and resolution of security situations. The availability of DVR and IP video technology bring a new level of functionality and affordability to video.
Our central station can verify alarm events by accessing video stored on a DVR in near-real time providing valuable information to property managers and emergency response personal.
