Service and Support for Your Home Security System

The best service hands down. I was out of the country and my property was broken into. I called and had a tech in my property within hours fixing my broken alarm unit and checking all my windows and doors for security. Way outside of the scope of his job. I can’t recommend them enough. They secure my personal home and rental properties.

Professional Installation of Your Home Alarm System

1st Security is the best combination of boutique/Mom and Pop shop where you can be completely be taken care of as a customer but also has state-of-the-art services and equipment that casts a shadow over the really big, corporate companies and their equipment/services. I researched a number of companies and I have never regretted choosing them even for a second.

Responsiveness to Your Calls & Questions About Your Security and Alarm System

Love the fact that I can stay in my bedroom and arm and disarm the system. We’re looking at expanding to add the doorbell camera which will allow us to talk with visitors even when we’re not home!

"I am in looooveee with my security system!! In these times, it's all about convenience and peace of mind and this is exactly what this security system gives you. I can do literally everything from my phone. I can adjust my thermostat, lock my door, activate/deactivate my alarm plus tons more. To top it off, it's very affordable. The customer service is amazing as well. The technicians explain everything about the system in detail and have you demonstrate back to them how to use the system. The response time with the police is extremely quick (I learned this by accidentally setting off the alarm). I definitely made the right decision in choosing 1st security!!!"

"Great company! Larry is the best! Very professional and friendly... He is always available and has helped me out greatly over the years... Highly recommend 1st Security!

"I honestly wish I could give more than 5 stars!! 1st Security USA was by far the best decisions I could have ever made when it came to alarm systems. I heard from ADT, Vivint you name them I heard from them. But the customer service and professionalism that they displayed was what sold it for me. You could tell they had your best interest at heart versus your wallet. I had Larry install my system and if you get your system definitely ask for Larry!! He gave me so much advice on being a first time homeowner and how in the future I could protect my house as my family grows. He even fixed my lock that I'd put on backwards (it worked though)! Thank you Larry for all the advice and making sure my house was protected!! Remember ask for Larry he's the best!!!"

"Amazing system! Did a lot of research on alarm systems....so glad I went with 1st security! They came to my house and explained everything to me, were not pushy at all. Came and installed the system a few days later....took the time to explain everything to me and did an amazing job with the installation. And the price is excellent, both the installation fee and the month to month. So happy with my decision."

Reducing After-School Worries with Smart Home Security

 
When you decide that your tween can handle a of couple hours on their own after school, it’s an exciting step for you both.

Your growing tween is happy because he’s earned another piece of independence. You get a celebratory fist pump as an expensive after-school care cost evaporates.

You have worries, though. Will they be safe? What if they lose their keys? Can they be trusted not to let all of their friends in?

Smart home security is here to help. With advanced access control and a discreet connection to events at home, an Alarm.com-powered security system is just what you need for peace of mind through this parenting milestone. Here’s how it helps:

1: No more keys to lose

Kids today are no different than 10, 15 or 20 years ago — they still have an amazing capacity to forget or misplace their house keys. When you get that call at work, it’ll cut your day short.

With smart home security, your tween doesn’t even need a key. All she has to do is enter her personalized four-digit user code into the smart lock. You can even automate the security system to disarm when she unlocks the door, so she doesn’t set off the alarm.

2: No wondering if they made it home

For peace of mind, it’s essential that you know when your child arrives home. However, checking in by phone every day can be a drag.

Alarm.com can solve this challenge with a customized smartphone alert, triggered by your tween’s user code.

When they arrive home and unlock the door, you’ll know. When you become more comfortable, you can even switch to a no-show alert, which notifies you only if they’re late.

3: You can still be the gatekeeper

When the kids are home without parents, it’s common to worry about what they’ll do if the doorbell rings — and whether they’ll follow your safety instructions.

With a video doorbell powered by Alarm.com, you can still be your house’s gatekeeper. When a visitor rings, you can be first to answer through the doorbell’s speaker, and see exactly who’s there on a live video feed to your smartphone. Your kids don’t have to worry about it.

4: It helps your tween ease into other privileges

Do you remember your parents barking “NO FRIENDS!” as a parting command before leaving you home alone?
Now you’re a parent, you get it: allowing unvetted visitors can leave too much to chance. Playing video games is one thing; raiding the man cave fridge for sodas is another.

When the time comes for your older tween to have the privilege of hosting friends alone, smart home security lets you keep a discreet eye on things. With contact sensors available for forbidden rooms, and easy video monitoring inside and outside, it’s easy to give your trust a boost by quickly checking into your Alarm.com app.

5: It’s reassuring for you both

Finally, to put things into our kids’ perspective—do you remember how being home alone used to feel? It was absolutely liberating—and yet, also a little strange and unsettling.

Knowing that you’re still connected to home can go a long way in making your kids feel safer and more secure there. While new-found freedom is great, freedom with a slice of reassurance is even better—both for your kids, and for you.

Interested in smart home security?

If your last experience of a security system was an outdated, wired system, you’ll be surprised at what a modern system can do.
