What Sets Bay Alarm Home Security Apart?

As a third-generation family-owned company, Bay Alarm has a deep-rooted understanding of the importance of family and community.

Bay Alarm’s personalized approach to solution offering also makes them stand out from the crowd. Instead of a standard package for every customer, Bay Alarm wants to know what is going on in the customer’s life so they know exactly what solutions to offer. For example, perhaps you are moving to a new home or want to make sure your pet is safe when you’re not at home. Bay Alarm has a thoughtful solution and state of the art equipment to back it up.

Professional monitoring with the provider starts at $35.00/mo., and the cost of installation for a Bay Alarm security system is $199.00. With an A+ BBB rating and an 8.4 out of 10 Trustpilot Rating, it is safe to say Bay Alarm is an industry leader.
