Post Alarm Review

If you live in Los Angeles, San Diego, or anywhere else in Southern California, you may want to consider contracting Post Alarm for your home security. Not only does the company have an excellent reputation as one of the top home security companies in California and one of the Top 100 Security Companies in the Nation, but it also offers excellent prices–starting at just $33/month. Whether you need basic home security or a full upgrade, you’ll find that Post Alarm is up to the task.


With Post Alarm, homeowners get only top-of-the-line Honeywell equipment for their home security systems. Honeywell has a reputation for being very reliable, with systems that last close to a decade with far fewer bugs and glitches than competing brands. The home security systems tend to be fairly simple, but the low price tag makes Honeywell systems an excellent choice for people who don’t want to shell out a fortune for a great security system. For less than $800, Post Alarm will provide homeowners with complete protection.

Most of the equipment is wireless, but landline equipment is also provided by Post Alarm. The Honeywell landline-based systems are simpler, featuring none of the advanced bells and whistles that costlier wireless system provides. Still, if you want a cheaper home security system, the hard-wired systems are a good choice. The alarms and sirens are manufactured by First Alert, another top-ranked security device company.

Monitoring and Services

The services offered by Post Alarm range from basic home security systems to full, round-the-clock protection. The basic Post Alarm system comes with a motion sensor, a central control panel, three wireless door and window sensors, and the key fob for external access. Of course, Post Alarm also provides stickers and signs to show that your home is protected.

One perk that makes Post Alarm stand out is the fact that its home security systems are connected to the monitoring station via VoIP instead of via phone line. In other words, even if a phone line is cut, the VoIP connection will still send the signals to the monitoring station. This also allows customers to install a home security system without altering their phone connection in any way, and they can change phone companies or plans without fear of compromising their home security.

For those who are comfortable with paying higher monthly premiums, Post Alarm offers remote web-based access to home alarm systems. The Honeywell security app makes it easy for you to get online and check the status of your home, ready any alerts, and access your door locks from anywhere around the world. Post Alarm doesn’t offer home automation, but it does provide both web-based and SMS-based remote access. The Videofied system it offers combines motion detectors with video cameras, recording a 10-second video clip every time the motion sensor is triggered. For homeowners with pets, this comes in handy to avoid false alarms.


With Post Alarm, the highest cost is the installation and activation. The company requires that homeowners purchase a security system in full, which comes to about $800 for the basic system. Additional features cost more. However, the monthly premium is only $33/month, and there is no contract. This ensures that homeowners can cancel without fees, provided they give 30-day notice.

The Good

With no contract, there are no exorbitant cancellation fees

The Videofied systems help prevent false alarms

The Bad

The basic system only offers limited features and adding more features can be costly

And The Ugly

The initial purchase of the home security system is very high and is mandatory
