Home Security Systems Portland

Most homeowners utilize our alarm response service provided by a First Response officer who is dispatched to your home in the event of an alarm. Our officer will provide a full report which is sent to you the following business day and we will follow up with you to see if you have any safety concerns. This service provides significant cost savings over false alarm fines from the local police department, and it also provides you peace of mind knowing that one company is providing multiple services.

Homeowners can choose from hard wired or wireless options when designing a home alarm, and we offer a mobile package which allows you to receive full alarm functionality using your phone or computer. With optional video surveillance, you can now receive video clips sent straight to your mobile device to keep you connected to your home even when you are away. Please see our Total Connect page for more information; you won't regret it.

Our products are outfitted with state of the art technology designed to reduce false alarms and provide user-friendly features such as:

  • Touch screen keypads for easy arming and disarming
  • Pet immune, dual-technology motion detection
  • Multiple technologies available for monitoring, including telephone, IP, GSM, RF
  • Online system management and one touch signal notification for immediate police, fire, or medical emergency assistance

The highest quality products backed by a responsive technical team of factory trained, background checked technicians is exactly what you deserve – and it’s exactly what we provide. Our expertise in security system design, installation, service and monitoring has made a difference in the lives of countless homes throughout the Northwest for two decades.

In-House Home Alarm Monitoring

Portland In-House Home Alarm Monitoring System

Speaking of monitoring, our 24-hour alarm monitoring service is performed in-house by our own iWATCH Communications division. That means that the central station your alarm signal reaches is UL listed and locally based in the Northwest – staffed by our own attentive agents who are ready to respond when your alarm activates. In today’s highly contracted security systems industry, in-house monitoring services are rarely offered. Then again, First Response holds itself to A Higher Standard of service.
