From Our Website

Urban Alarm's system engineers are National Institute of Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) certified - which guarantees that when our engineers show up to your site, they're bringing at least five years of hands-on safety and security experience. Older property retrofit? Multi-unit apartment complex? Building out a retail space? Urban Alarm is all over it - meticulously prepared with a wide range of expert fire alarm installation experience. Virginia, Maryland, and Washington D.C. require that Commercial Fire Alarm Systems be inspected annually.


With your home security system in place, you can log-in to watch video feeds from your front door or inside your house, you can arm or disarm the system, you can schedule arming/disarming - you have full control over the system. Concierge-level service, at its finest. Our familiar fleet of black vehicles - our Mobile Community Patrol - can check your property and perform other tasks while you're away. From getting your mail and picking up packages, to bringing in your trash cans, watering the plants - even feeding your pets.


Do what the majority of Urban Alarm customers do - register for our Community Mobile Patrols. Members receive a special phone number to reach the Urban Alarm Security Officer on patrol. It's a smart way to keep eyes on your property for even greater peace of mind. It's a proven fact that visible security is an effective deterrent for opportunistic crime. The good news: each person who signs up in your neighborhood increases the visibility and frequency of the patrol. More participants mean more safety.


Video surveillance is a proven deterrent - plain and simple. It's also extremely cost-effective in commercial, industrial, and government applications where so much can be at stake. Urban Alarm designs and implements video surveillance systems using advanced video analytics, and in conjunction with traditional "trip-wire" security systems. We work with a variety of video surveillance (CCTV) technologies, but we specialize in video systems utilizing information technology infrastructure, or "IP Video" surveillance systems incorporating video analytics.


Commercial property owners understand the importance of making sure doors are locked, checking for leaks, and noticing vandals - but the cost of a full-time security officer can be astronomical. Especially when you're required to pay for a full 8-hour day, even though certain patrolling functions don't take hours. Imagine paying only for the time it actually takes - imagine a patrol service like Urban Alarm Commercial Mobile Patrol. Only pay for the person while they're on patrol of your property.
