It means that we are inspected by UL (United Labratories) annually for compliance. It means that when there is a problem or alarm, the person you are talking to is familiar with the area. It means we do not sell your account out to someone in another state like some of the big national companies do. And finally it means that we are privately owned and our reputation reflects our business practices.
Sting Alarm offers a variety of security services for residential, commercial and industrial customers. We offer intrusion alarms, camera systems (CCTV), electronic access control systems, standard and advanced monitoring solutions, service, and alarm guard response. Sting Alarm has the experience and the manpower to handle all your security needs.
For those customers still using phone lines to connect to our monitoring center, the alarm system will still sound locally but will not be monitored. We offer cellular communication for all new installs and will connect to a customer’s Wi-Fi connection, for redundant, dual path communication to our monitoring center.
Because the phone line was cut, the system was unable to send any signals and the phone lines are not monitored by any company for constant connection. This is why we always provide a cellular connection for new installs and also connect to customer provided Wi-Fi when available.
All customers are encouraged to test their systems monthly. This can be done by calling our monitoring center and putting your system on test. You will start sending signals by arming your system and opening doors, windows, and tripping motions, etc. Call 702-737-8464 for details on testing your system along with smokes, heats and carbon monoxide detectors.
Yes! All calls made to or from Sting Alarm are recorded for security purposes and to ensure accuracy of our dispatchers and customer instructions.
If you have our Extended Service Plan for your security system, we will support and service any failures or issues you are having included in the price of your monthly service and you will not pay for a service call. This does not cover Acts of God, Vandalism, Home or Business Remodels, or failures due to existing infrastructure or customer provided internet and Wi-Fi.
Yes! Please call our office to speak with a sales representative at 702-737-8464 as these types of plans are custom tailored per system.
No you do not need internet just to use our system as they come with a cellular connection. You DO however need internet and typically Wi-Fi to use any video devices, and some other peripheral devices that we offer.
We recommend a minimum of 2Mbps per video device for a smooth experience.
Typically this will work, but we usually don’t recommend any more than 4 total video devices as ISP provided Wi-Fi typically has a limited range and throughput good for up to about a 2000 SqFt property. We recommend you purchase and install a more robust Wi-Fi Router if you think you want more video devices than this or your property is larger than 2000 SqFt. You can call us if you have any questions about this.
We have an experienced Support Team that is here during normal business hours ready to help you with any issues. Our staff can help walk you through any troubleshooting steps needed and most of the time we can resolve any issues you may be experiencing right over the phone. If we need to dispatch a tech, we can do so for a nominal trip fee plus any parts needed. If you have one of our Alarm systems with the Extended Service Plan, there is no charge for most issues outside of Acts of God, Vandalism, Remodels or Tenant Improvements.
We typically handle this on a case by case basis, but a lot of times we will require you to do some troubleshooting with our remote support staff as we are able to resolve 90% of the issues you may have over the phone. This helps us keep our rates and fees as low and competitive as possible.
Our remote support is a billable service, but some of our Service Plans do include this or provide you with a reduced rate. If you are not sure please call us at 702-737-8464 and we can tell you what’s included in your service plan.
Most of the batteries used in your system are end user replaceable. If you call us we can tell you what batteries you need and how to replace them. Most batteries last for years so this is not something you need to do until the system tells you it has a low battery.
Batteries are not included unless you have a system with a Service Plan that includes this. If it does include this, we will send you the batteries you need free of charge for you to replace. If you want one of our techs dispatched to your property to change them for you, there is a nominal fee.
Our Monitoring Center is open and operates 24/7, 365 days a year. Our Corporate Office which is comprised of Sales, Customer Care, Installation and Service, is open Mon-Fri, from 9am to 5pm. If you call after hours, we do have on-call support available for emergencies. After hours support is typically billable and incurs an after hours labor rate billed with a 2 hour minimum.
While we do like to answer the calls we receive right when you call, we do experience high call volumes at times. If you need to leave a message for a call back, you can expect a return call by the next business day.
For any after hours support requests, you can expect a return call within 4 hours.
We offer a 90 day warranty on any labor, and all equipment is covered under the manufacturers warranties. Most manufacturers have warranties for at least a year, and some even go as far as 3-5 years.
