The need for a home security system in Denver

Denver skyline

Compared to the rest of the U.S., Denver is only safer than 9 percent of other cities. In fact, the chances of becoming a victim of a property crime in Denver are 1 in 28 and 1 in 36 throughout the rest of Colorado.

The Denver neighborhoods with the most crime include East Colfax, Five Points, Montbello, Union Station and Capitol Hill.

But even in the safest neighborhoods of Denver, like Indian Creek, Country Club, Wellshire, Fort Logan, Belcaro, Southmoor Park, Marston and Washington Park, there's a need for a home alarm system. These safe neighborhoods are just miles away from reported crimes and break-ins.

No matter where you live in Denver, monitoring your home security cameras and motion sensors could make all the difference in keeping your family safe.

Permits for home alarm systems in Denver

If you live or own a business in Denver, you must have a city-issued permit to have a security alarm. The alarm system is required to be operated by a licensed monitoring company, like those listed in this article. For your convenience, applications for an alarm permit can be obtained through the alarm company you select.

All alarm permits are valid for one year from the issue date, and renewal notices are mailed to your home 30 days prior to the expiration date. You’ll be unable to renew if you have outstanding fines or fees owed to the city or county of Denver.

Costs of home alarm permits in Denver and Boulder:

  • The renewal fee in Denver is $25 and can be renewed online or by mail.
  • The annual fee for an alarm permit and renewal in Boulder is $35.
  • There is a fine of $50 each time a panic or hold-up alarm is activated for a false alarm.

If a location has five or more false alarms, the Alarms Division notifies the Denver Police. At that time, the Denver Police put the location into “general response status,” which means no officer will be dispatched to that location, but a general call will be broadcast. If an officer is in the area and available, he or she will respond.

Wireless vs. professional home alarm installation

Depending on your needs, you may choose to a DIY home security system or get one professionally installed. Most companies only offer one option or the other. DIY systems tend to appeal to renters and tech-savvy people, since the installation requires no wiring or drilling and can be done without an appointment. There are never any installation fees.

Other companies only offer professional installation. Professionals know where to place security cameras and are less likely to make mistakes during installation. If you want the assurance that the devices are installed correctly, opt to hire the professionals.
