I keep having problems with my alarm, camera system, etc. What can Patriot Alarms do about this?

The most common cause of problems with a low voltage system is poor installation. Our industry is not governed as strictly as trades (ie: electricians, plumbers, carpenters, etc.) and this opens the door for poor quality work to be done by less responsible alarm companies. Our service team has been finding problems with systems across the country for many years. Their experienced eyes will locate and repair the headaches you've been dealing with in record time.

What's the difference between Patriot Alarms and other low voltage providers?

Patriot Electrics management staff is dedicated to strict quality control. Our technicians are frequently critiqued on installations to maintain unmatched quality, aesthetically pleasing and low maintenance systems and wiring. Our feeling is that the best installed systems are not noticed until they need to be. Any exposed wiring, or awkwardly installed devices, are avoided at all costs. We pride ourselves on neatly installing wire and devices in ways that make our system nearly invisible until they are out into action by a fire, burglary, or illegal actions. In addition to our quality work, Patriot Alarms operates under one rule: We have one customer, and you are the one. With this in mind we want you to know that with each job that the Patriot Electrical team takes on, we treat it as our first. We make sure the customer knows our appreciation for choosing us above all others. We believe that the highest form of flattery is a referral from our customers!

What type of equipment or features are available on today's alarms/low voltage systems for my home or business?

The possibilities are nearly endless. Here are a few of the most popular features: smoke detectors, heat detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, door and window sensors, LCD touchpad keypads, wireless keyfobs all on one alarm system. Cameras that you can view form your television at home. Online access to view your business' cameras from anywhere in the world. Home automation, turning on anything electric from your office or cell phone. Covert and Pinhole cameras to catch actions unknowingly. And many, many more.

Is Patriot Alarms appropriately licensed, bonded and insured?
