Our Customers Say

5 star service from Alarm Engineering “Outstanding folks to work with and extremely responsive.

I was extremely pleased with David and Terry throughout our bidding & install process. Both were professional and responsive to our questions/concerns. Both provided advice that was helpful in setting up our system – great reps for the company.

As a community, we needed to competitively bid this system. David was professional and informative throughout this process. Because of his diligence and responsiveness, we as a board felt AE was the best value and would best service our development. During the installation process, Terry fully confirmed our decision. He was informative and helped us make placement decisions based on his experience and listening to/understanding our needs. I would and have recommended AE to other communities and residents based on the helpfulness and excellence of David and Terry.”

Not all Smoke Detectors are Created Equal If you purchased your smoke detector from the hardware store or your electrician, you likely have an ionization detector, while we recommend and install photoelectric smoke detectors.

Good Morning America recently tested the two main types of smoke detectors. If you purchased your smoke detector from the hardware store or your electrician, you likely have an ionization detector, while we recommend and install photoelectric smoke detectors. See the difference for yourself in this compelling video.

You may not know that most house fires are of the smoldering (rather than flaming) type, due to the abundance of flame retardant materials used in furniture upholstery and construction. As you see in the video investigation, photoelectric smoke detectors detect smoldering fires better.

Monitored photoelectric smoke detectors are designed to protect your family and home 24/7, whether your alarm system is armed or not. Learn more about professional monitoring from Alarm Engineering here.
