Mountain Alarm Overview

mountainalarm-logoMountain Alarm started in 1952 as a door-to-door fire alarm sales company.  For the past 30 years now, the company has forayed into the security systems business while maintaining their fire protection services.  The company is based in Tacoma, Washington and holds offices in Utah, Colorado, and Idaho, though it services accounts all across the country.  Mountain Alarm primarily services residential customers, whether in high-rise apartments or single-family homes.  Commercial security and fire protection services are also available.  The company holds an A+ rating with the BBB and maintains a very detailed and informative website with everything you need to inquire about, purchase, maintain, and troubleshoot a home security or fire protection system.

Mountain Alarm Reviews

Mountain Alarm customers are pleased with the company’s affordable, price-matching rates, speedy response times, and informative technicians and customer service representatives.  With over 60 years in business, customers feel they can trust the A+ ranked Mountain Alarm and their expertise in the home security industry.  Most customers have overwhelmingly positive experiences with the entire process of setting up a new home security system, starting with the courteous sales staff, followed by a professional and informative installation process, and maintained with dedicated and efficient customer service.  The Mountain Alarm technicians that do the installations provide each customer with a detailed overview of their system and its workings before the job is done, but any troubleshooting or service issues are met with quick and reliable customer service representatives whom are eager to make sure your needs are met at no extra cost.  The biggest downside to Mountain Alarm is its cancellation policy, which requires you to pay the remaining balance on your contract in the event you cancel your plan.
