Fairfield Electric Cooperative Inc. provides the best burglar alarm systems in Columbia, SC and the surrounding areas. A burglar alarm is a system designed to detect intrusion and unauthorized entry into a building or area.
Burglar alarms are used in residential, commercial, industrial, and military properties for protection against burglary (theft) or property damage, as well as personal protection against intruders. Car alarms likewise protect vehicles and their contents. Prisons also use security systems for control of inmates.
Some alarm systems serve a single purpose of burglary protection; combination systems provide both fire and intrusion protection.
Intrusion alarm systems may also be combined with closed-circuit television surveillance systems to automatically record the activities of intruders, and may interface to access control systems for electrically locked doors.
Systems range from small, self-contained noisemakers, to complicated, multi-area systems with computer monitoring and control.
Our monitoring service can help you secure your home from burglary and fire. Call today for more information on our security systems and how you can feel more secure in your home today.
Fairfield Electric Alarm Services offers state-of-the-art motion detectors, wireless remote control and other features that will increase the security of your home…and your peace of mind.
We know it is hard to choose which company to go with, while purchasing an alarm system. In order to help you and show you how well our company is serving thousands of people you can read the questions below. If they do not answer all your questions and concerns please call us!
Will installing security systems help me lower the cost of insuring my home?
An alarm system not only provides reliable protection, but it usually helps reduce your homeowner's insurance premium.
Most insurance companies give a discount on the homeowner's insurance premium when a security system is installed. When you include smoke alarms as part of the monitored security system, you qualify for the greatest discount the company can allow. Contact your insurance company for more information.
Can I get a system even though I am not a Fairfield Electric customer?
A customer does not have to receive electricity from Fairfield Electric to obtain the security service. Fairfield Electric is fully licensed and insured as required by law and a member of the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association and South Carolina Alarm Association.
How does the monitoring work?
In the event of an alarm, the system will dial a toll-free number and send a coded message to our monitoring center. The monitoring center will then call the alarm location to confirm the alarm, except in the case of a silent or duress alarm. The center will dispatch the appropriate response authority if:
1. It does not get an answer after three rings
2. It reaches your answering machine or
3. It is answered by someone who does not know your prearranged code word.
How much does it cost to have my system monitored?
is only $19.50 per month. The service ensures that even when
you are away from home, someone will respond if your alarm goes
off. If smoke detectors are part of your system, the fire
department will be called to your house if no one is at home.
What is the response time?
The response to a triggered alarm is very prompt. Almost without exception, customers who trigger their alarms accidentally report that the confirmation call from the monitoring service comes within 30 seconds.
What if I have problems with my system?
Fairfield Electric stands behind the services we offer. All components and labor are warranted for a full year. If you experience any problems or have any questions, call Fairfield Electric.
What if I have a power outage?
You can choose from a variety of options to form your own personal security system, but all will come with a battery back-up to provide you with peace of mind.
What is the difference between a wired system and a wireless one?
It's often difficult to install a wired system in an existing home, but they are usually ideal for homes under construction and less costly to install, at that point, than wireless systems.
The advantage of a wired system is that it does not rely on batteries. The wire provides a tangible link between the sensor and the master control.
Wireless systems, however, can be installed just about anywhere. They also eliminate the need for a wire link, which can be broken or can pick up radio interference.
Although it is possible that the wireless system's radio link can be interrupted, the control unit periodically checks the link and if the link is not there, the control unit will notify the monitoring service. Also, these systems require batteries, but always come with a low battery indicator that is activated thirty days before it actually dies. Wireless monitoring is only $26.00 per month.
Fairfield Electric can install EITHER type of system or a combination of BOTH!
How much does the security system cost?
The cost depends on which options you choose to include in your system. Our consultant can help you decide what is best for your budget and your alarm needs.

This is the worst Electric Company...after less than 2 weeks of my bill being late they sent someone to my house to collect money. Then they added $10 late fee and $20 for knocking at my door to collect payment. I have never been late. I have lived in many different states and I have never seen such a thing. Now, what century are we in? We are not in the Stone Age. Who does that? SCE&G makes an automated call reminding you of the payment and it's FREE. That's todays's technology. Fairfield just wants to rip people off on a daily basis. Imagine how much money they make on a weekly basis knocking at people's homes and then charging them $20. Do the math...lots of money.
