Ackerman offers home security solutions only in the metro Atlanta area. However, Ackerman provides commercial security services for businesses from coast to coast.
What Sets Ackerman Security Systems Apart?
Personal tragedy served as the catalyst for establishing Ackerman Security Systems. In 1967, founder Charles Ackerman suffered a gunshot wound when an intruder broke into his home. The incident prompted Charles to establish a residential security company that focused on the needs of average homeowners, with a focus on customer service.
While Ackerman provides commercial security services throughout the United States, it only offers residential service in the metro Atlanta area. The company sells and installs a full range of security and home automation equipment, from smart locks to video doorbells to indoor video cameras and offers 24/7 monitoring services starting at just $19.95 per month.
While many security companies offer guarantees on equipment, Ackerman goes a step further with a 200% money back guarantee. If a thief burglarizes your Ackerman protected home, the company will pay 100% of your deductible, plus a matching amount in cash, up to $25,000. Ackerman has served the Atlanta area for more than half a century and holds an A- rating with the Better Business Bureau.
