Alarms Unlimited designs and installs custom, affordable, state-of-the-art home security systems. We start by listening to your concerns and perceived needs for a home security solution. We typically perform a site survey and gather details about your property. We then choose appropriate, fully evaluated and tested products and design an integrated solution. We can make everything accessible from your laptop or mobile device. Upon your review and approval, our own trusted and licensed employees (not subcontractors) install your home security system and provide training for you.

If applicable a home security service agreement may be offered for added value. Our comprehensive service department is available for ongoing or warranty related service.

Complete Home Security Solutions

Complete support is provided throughout the entire system life cycle: sales, design and engineering, installation, training, monitoring and service. Your system will be monitored by our local security operations center and central monitoring station right here in San Diego. Our central station is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by highly trained and professional security dispatchers that care about your safety and security. You will come to know these individuals on a personal basis by name and voice. Our philosophy of “partnering” with our customers allows us to envision our team as an extension of your staff or family, as we support you with unsurpassed customer service.


We are 10-year customers of Alarms Unlimited and highly recommend the company to anyone wanting a professionally installed and run home security system. The technical people are pros, service is fast and skillful, and the live people who answer the phone are concerned first and foremost about our security — not about trying to sell us some new service or equipment. We have another home protected by an impersonal, national security company and there is absolutely no comparison whatsoever to the highly personal, highly professional, reasonably priced service we receive from Alarms Unlimited.

Professionally installed security systems have been shown to be one of the most effective means of deterring criminals. Consider the following:

  • A Temple University study found that a home protected by a security system is 2.2 to 3.1 times less likely to be burglarized.
  • A Rutgers University study concluded that an increase in security system installations was directly responsible for a decrease in crime.
  • A Northeastern University study found that criminals “want to avoid security systems altogether and, upon encountering such devices, abandon all thought of attacking the dwelling.”
  • The International Association of Chiefs of Police passed a Board Resolution stating that “professionally installed and monitored security systems are useful instruments to deter crime and provide peace of mind for residential and business owners.”
  • Insurance companies provide significant discounts on homeowner’s insurance premiums when a professionally monitored home security system is installed. That’s because they know security systems greatly reduce the odds of break-ins and losses.

Security systems provide two primary levels of protection: exterior (perimeter) protection and interior protection. The ideal security system employs a combination of both that is customized for each specific situation.


Exterior or perimeter protection devices generally consist of sensing mechanisms attached to doors and windows leading into the home. These devices, which can either be hard-wired or wireless, trigger an audible alarm if a break-in is attempted. At the same time, they send an emergency call for help to our local monitoring center.


It is important to have a method for detecting an intruder if he breaches perimeter security. This is where interior protection comes into play. The most commonly used interior protective devices are motion detectors, which detect the movement of an intruder inside your home. 


A professional security consultant such as Alarms Unlimited can also provide a number of specialized protective measures to meet specific security and safety concerns. For instance, a “panic alarm” can be set up for use by “home alone” children or elderly parents. At Alarms Unlimited we take the time to fully understand your situation and address your unique needs.


Monitored smoke detectors can be easily included in a professional security system installation. Like the security system, a fire system will not only maximize life safety and peace-of-mind—it can also significantly lower your homeowner’s insurance premiums.
