American Alarm was created by the current owner Scott Gilkey in 1995. We started out with no accounts and had a hundred or so after the first year.


Through the years with minimal advertising and mostly through word of mouth, American Alarm has grown to where we are today servicing and monitoring several thousand security system accounts. We have been a member of the BBB for almost the entire time and have always had an A+ rating.

At American Alarm, we have always had the philosophy that if you treat your customer exceptionally well and make sure they are very happy with your service, they will refer us to their relatives and friends so getting new accounts will never be a problem. So far, that has worked well for us. Unlike most of the national security system companies, we feel it is better to keep an existing customer satisfied and a loyal customer rather than take the mass marketing approach and sign up a bunch of new accounts while losing our existing customers. We feel that you gain nothing by signing up a new customer if you lose an existing customer in the process because you are so focused on new customers.  So, if you want to partner with a company that values your business and will work to keep you satisfies, choose American Alarm Corporation, Inc.
