  • “As an architect and contractor I recommend homeowners use Sentry Alert. They spend time making people feel comfortable with the system. They just finished an installation at one of my client’s homes and worked all weekend to complete the job so that the house would not be left vulnerable.”

  • “Personally I now feel much more secure. Dan and his installers took great care of me. Everyone at the company makes you feel that they have your interest at heart.”

  • “These guys rock! Our old alarm company is eating their dust! You won’t find a better alarm company anywhere in the Bay Area.”

Your home may be your castle, but you can’t constantly monitor it for fire, or surround it with a moat to keep out intruders. A custom-designed security system by Sentry Alert, Inc. will preserve your peace of mind, while saving you money on insurance bills.

In surveys of local alarm companies’ customers, Sentry Alert is consistently top-rated for price and quality of service. They are a family owned and operated alarm company, which specializes in installing or upgrading residential and commercial security and fire alarm systems.

Sentry Alert, a First Alert/Honeywell dealer (a Fortune 500 company and one of the nation’s biggest alarm systems manufacturer), offers a wide variety of wireless and hardwired systems. They protect and monitor homes in Oakland, Berkeley, and throughout the greater East Bay.

Dan Fruchtman founded Sentry Alert in 1976. Today he supervises a crew of highly qualified installers, each of whom has many years experience in residential security systems.

“We don’t use subcontractors,” says Dan. “My employees are craftsmen. I give them the time to do the job right. We’re constantly called to correct other contractors’ mistakes. The amount of bad workmanship we see is frightening.”

Some people are confused by their system’s electronics and end up not using it for fear of false alarms. Sentry Alert educates each customer individually on how their system works, then follows up periodically to make sure homeowners are comfortable with their home security. They can also upgrade or modernize older systems to make them more effective and easier to use.

“I feel personally responsible for every system we have out there, under warranty or not,” says Dan. “We respond very quickly to emergencies—and we won’t be undersold.”
