Founded in 2003 by Miles Fawcett to be a different kind of home security company, Urban Alarm services residential and commercial customers throughout the Washington, DC metro area. Having been a customer with a national security provider and a lifetime DC resident, Mr. Fawcett wanted an alarm company that reflected his values in providing honest, trustworthy service and helping the community.
Urban Alarm custom designs each security system they install after consulting with the customer to determine what options are possible and then helping the customer select the one that best suits their needs, budget and system expectations.
Beyond the expected services of a local burglar alarm company, Urban Alarm offers additional services within their community, including remote video patrol, local mobile patrols and even a Urban Vacation Watch service, which sends a security professional to your home while you’re away to collect mail, water plants and more.
While the company isn’t accredited with the BBB, they maintain an A+ rating and have no listed complaints in the past three years.
