Guardian Protection Services Provides Top-Notch Home Security Systems


Guardian Protection Offers Prime Security

Since its inception in 1950, Guardian Protection Services has served its customers with the best available security systems. The company began its life as Guardian Alarm Systems, providing protection to high-end jewelry stores in the Pittsburgh area. From a base of only four customers in those early years, Guardian now serves over 250,000 customers. As part of the Armstrong Group of Companies, Guardian has pursued slow and steady growth, expanding its technology while keeping its commitment to personal service.

Service Areas

Although Guardian Protection Services still maintains its headquarters in Pittsburgh, the company's steady growth has allowed it to spread from its Western Pennsylvania roots to branch offices across the United States. While most of its offices are located east of the Mississippi, Guardian has extended its reach west, with multiple branches and dealer offices in Texas, Colorado, Utah and Arizona.


Systems from Guardian Protection Services include benefits that extend beyond home security. Homeowners can receive substantial deductionson the insurance premiums by adding protection from fire and carbon monoxide to their security systems. The energy management system also allows users to reduce their electricity usage, maintain exterior and interior safety lighting and control interior temperatures during the heat of summer or the cold of winter.


The control center of the systems from Guardian Protection Services is the GE Simon XT Home Control Unit. These easy-to-use touchpads use a wireless connection to communicate with the system's remote monitoring station. Each security plan from Guardian Protection Services includes:

  • Built-in siren
  • Three or more micro door/window sensors
  • One or more motion detector(s)
  • Yard sign and window stickers

Optional peripherals include:

  • Security cameras
  • Carbon monoxide detectors
  • Interior/exterior remote light switches


Guardian Protection Services provides systems that include several useful features. In addition to the round-the-clock monitoring and wireless connectivity, customers can also use some of these additional features:

  • Medical alert pendants to call for emergency medical services.
  • Keyfob transmitters to arm and disarm the system remotely.
  • Thermostat control to regulate interior temperatures.
  • Guardian VoiceLink to communicate directly with the monitoring station.
  • Weather alerts to warn of dangerous weather conditions.


Guardian Protection Services offers several grades of security plans, with installation fees starting at $199 and monthly monitoring fees starting at $29.95. Since Guardian has dealers in different regions of the country, prices and equipment availability may vary widely among locations.
