About Guardian Security

Guardian began as Guardian Alarm Systems of Pittsburg, Inc. in 1950. At that time, their sole business was the installation and monitoring of security systems in jewelry stores.

In 1975, their name changed to Guardian Protection Services, Inc. and their focus expanded. Security systems for homes and businesses in Western Pennsylvania and the surrounding tri-state area became Guardian’s concentration.

After being named to Inc. Magazine’s top 500 list of America’s fastest-growing companies, Guardian caught the attention of the Armstrong Group of Companies who acquired the company in 1991 and has helped it grow to where it is today. Check out the full review of Guardian Protection Services here.

    What would be the install cost and monthly charges for:
    2 motion detectors
    4 door sensors
    2 smoke detectors
    1 water sensor
    and ability to control via smart phone.

    Any contract? If so, how long?
    Equipment warranty period?
    If sensor failed, how long would it be, before someone would come to repair/replace?
