About Guardian Security

Guardian began as Guardian Alarm Systems of Pittsburgh, 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 Guardian Protection today. Check out the full review of Guardian Protection 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?

      Hi Ernie,
      For a specific quote like that, we’d recommend contacting Guardian directly.

    Does your service have a doorbell camera

    1. Avatar Safe Home says:

      Hi Katrina,
      Yes, Guardian does list a video doorbell camera on its website.

    I moved and notified the company. They did not tell me to bring all the equipment to include the panel. I’m paying 63.99 a month and have no service due to your company wanting $400 for a new panel. I’m sure you have used ones Ican get since I’ve been a customer for awhile

      Hi Petra,
      We’re not Guardian, so you’d need to contact them to ask about used panels.

  4. Avatar Anthony says:

    I just purchased a home that the previous owner had a guardian security system. The control panel still has captured images of the previous owners arming/disarming the security system. Is there anyway to reset the system and use the basic functions without getting monitoring service?

      Hi Anthony,
      You can call Guardian and ask, but all of their packages come with professional monitoring.
