As a family-owned business built over three generations, we’re uniquely equipped to understand how important it is to protect your employees, your inventory, and your legacy. Since 1946, California businesses have been relying on Bay Alarm as their commercial security company to protect everything they’ve worked so hard for. Here are just a few of the reasons why:
Bay Alarm stands out from other companies because of what we offer in addition to home security technology: reputable service and reliability. That’s why over 110,000 Californians have chosen us.
Our Monitoring Station is staffed 24/7/365 with well-trained call center agents who take your alarm system to the next level with their service. For our Fire System customers, our call center agents provide the invaluable service of dispatching the appropriate authorities to your business site urgently in case of fire or a fire concern. Fires double in size every ten seconds, so every second counts when it comes to protecting lives and your livelihood.
Our Monitoring Station undergoes a rigorous inspection process to be certified as UL Listed and is audited annually for quality, efficiency, and functioning monitoring equipment.
In addition, we have a UL 2050 Certification to work with the Department of Defense. We may create, monitor, and inspect Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIFs) where sensitive, secret information is stored.
