Poor Customer service and untrustworthy installation practices. Would not do business with them again

Hi my name is Bob Bieniek and you can publish my name. I purchased my system approximately two years ago and my sales rep Steve B asked me to give a review. I was reluctant to spend money on A security system because my small-town atmosphere. But then we had some break-ins in the Gainesville area when someone broken into about 17 businesses and only stole small amounts of money. But because I have a real estate office I was concerned about my customers personal information. There's not much to steal out of the real estate office. But I have to tell you that it was one of the best investment I ever made for peace of mind. I know with my sales people come and go because it shows on my phone each time. If I leave and forget to set the alarm I can do so by my phone. And please understand I am not a very techy person and the system is so easy to operate. When I have had any kind of service questions the company has been great and answers my questions quickly and professionally. Only one time did we accidentally set the alarm off my office was called and it required my security pass name so they didn't send out the National Guard. I know I can call an 800 number but I generally just call my sales rep Steve B with my questions and he is very well-versed in the system and has always answered what I needed. I would highly recommend this system to anyone

Had this service for the initial 3 years, plus 1 year free, plus another year monitored service. No problems as the house was constructed and included the security system which was activated after taking possession.
