Available Home Security Systems
Pinnacle Home Security offers several home security systems beginning with the Essential Package that is ideal for a small home or apartment. The package is controlled by the top-rated GE Simon XT panel that is a part of many leading security systems. The system can use your landline with a cellular backup or use just wireless or cellular for all communication with the home alarm monitoring center.
The Essential Package comes with 2 door/window sensors, 1 motion sensor, 1 yard sign and 1 window sticker. The services provided are 24/7 monitoring for police, fire and medical emergencies. The equipment is leased from the company as part of the contract. It is backed by a lifetime warranty, so if it needs to be repaired or replace, Pinnacle Home Security will do that in your home at their expense. Two-way voice offers fast communication with the monitoring center, so real emergencies can be immediately reported and false alarms can be cleared up. If you choose the cellular system, the entire system can be controlled remotely using your smart phone or device.
The Mobile Control Package is an upgraded home security system that includes all the equipment and features of the Essential Package and more. The extras include a touchscreen keypad for easier programming of the system, a glass break detector and a wall fob for faster communication of an emergency.
Monitoring for medical emergencies can be added by choosing the Security Plus Medical package.
