Cape Cod Alarm is a local alarm company in the area that has been keeping homeowners safe for decades. It offers innovative technology through its alarm products and services.


Due to the company’s customized plans, it is difficult to obtain pricing information online. Most of it is undisclosed.

That is because the cost depends on the size of the property. Customers can pay monthly for their security system for a one-year fixed rate. Clients can, however, ask for a quote online.

Associated Alarm Systems

Whereas many security companies offer a satisfaction guarantee, this information is undisclosed.


Associated Alarm Systems has a comprehensive home security system. It covers all the basics, from motion sensors to camera surveillance to custom installation planning.

We like the feature for families that sends parents an email with an attached video of their children arriving home safely.

Their equipment is manufactured by Honeywell as well as other known brands like Bosch and GE/Interlogix. The company offers customers a comprehensive home security system.

There are video cameras, alarms, medical buttons, intercoms, sensors, and more. The website goes on to describe what each of these features is. However, most customers are looking for specifics, rather than generalized information such as this.

Whereas customers can turn to professionals to help install their security system, there is no DIY option. Another downfall is that the local alarm company doesn’t offer crash and smash protection.

Customer Service

Customers have taken to online listings such as Google and Yelp to share their experience. It would seem that, at this time, there are many negative reviews.

Associated Alarm Systems has maintenance plans available. They also offer customer support via telephone and the internet. However, the local home security company lacks full-time, background checked technicians.
