Central Alarm Review

The family-owned and operated Central Alarm company is a good option for Tucson, Arizona homeowners worried about home safety.

Central Alarm offers both Honeywell and Ademco security systems, depending on the need of the homeowner. Both of these brands are near the top of their industry, so they are known to be reliable and trustworthy–though not always the most affordable.

When the home security system is installed, it includes a control panel, a siren, a motion detector, and three window and door sensors. A backup battery is also provided in order to prevent the system shutting down when the current battery runs out, and the key fob allows external access to the security system. Signs and stickers are also provided by Central Alarm, along with 24-hour monitoring and a 1-year warranty on all of the equipment and parts installed in the home.

The systems can include Open and Close Monitoring, ensuring that you can always track who opened and closed the doors as well as when. Keyless entry is provided with simple security cards for ease of access, but the wireless

systems are highly reliable.

Customers have the option of purchasing the home security system and therefore owning it, or simply leasing it out from the company.
