Scarsdale Security Systems Overview

scars-logoEstablished over 30 years ago, Scarsdale Security has been serving its residential and commercial customers in a number of different states, providing high-quality security services.  Mostly operating out of Scarsdale, NY, they have grown to have over 100 employees, and operate from different UL listed central monitoring stations.  They take pride in the state of the art equipment they install, such as Honeywell home security parts, and they always give their customers the option of choosing between a cellular or landline system.  Each package is completely customizable to suit the individual needs of the customer.  Special amenities can be added onto a basic package such as video monitoring, carbon monoxide detection, fire alarm, and much more.  Overall, Scarsdale is a very good company that does seem to have a number of loyal customers.  This is a local company that is perfect when you live in the appropriate area, and you don’t have to deal with the hassle of a big national company.  The customer service is very good, and you’ll always be able to reach a real person over the phone.

Scarsdale Security Systems Reviews

Customers seem pleased that Scarsdale Security offers a nice, adjustable contract, however there is complaint about the limited one year warranty on parts and labor.  This means that customers need to pay an additional fee to extend the coverage on their security system, and this is a huge pain.  Because the standard contract is three years, it’s just too risky to go two years without a warranty on your security system, as it’s common for parts to break, batteries to die, and equipment to be in need of replacement.  This is just the way of the world, and you’re going to need to be covered when this happens, otherwise it’s going to cost a fortune.  Also, there’s a bit of complaint about the difficulty of signing with such a small local company.  Should the homeowner have to move, then it’s going to be really hard to find a company that has a partnership with Scarsdale.  What this would mean is that you’d have to pay the remaining balance on your long contract with Scarsdale, or simply hope that the new owners of the home would like to take-on the security package when you go.  All in all, this seems to be a good company if you live in the Scarsdale, NY area, and would like a security company that operates on the local level.  The packages that they provide are comparable to those provided by big national companies in terms of price.  It should be noted that there is no mention of ratings with the BBB, and although this is not a huge problem, that rating is always very important for getting a good idea of the quality of a company’s services.

Scarsdale Security Systems Equipment

Scarsdale offers Honeywell equipment in either cellular or landline format.  The wireless system uses smart phone technology to monitor and control all the major settings.  This equipment will cost about $99 for installation and various different costs per month dependant upon how many months-long is your contract.  The traditional hardwire system uses the telephone landline and costs $199 to install the equipment.  No matter what system you choose, you’re going to get a myriad of parts included, and these are a control panel, battery pack, siren, key fob, two door and window sensors, motion sensor, as well as signs and stickers.  This is pretty much everything you need, but please note that having only 2 window/door sensors is rather limiting.

Scarsdale Security Systems Home Security Packages

scarsWhether you choose the cellular or the landline basic package from Scarsdale, you’ll have the benefit of being able to adjust your contract length, with the option to go either 3 or 5 years.  The basic packages are relatively inexpensive per month, compared to other companies, and their central station is fully-owned and operated by Scarsdale, so everything is done in-house.  That speeds up response times and just makes it easier to deal with any security company, for the most part.  These packages are pretty basic, but you can add other amenities such as carbon monoxide sensors, fire alarms, and video surveillance, should you so choose.  The equipment that comes in the package is comprehensive, albeit a bit limited.
