I’ve used Per Mar Security for my home since 2013. They discussed all my options, listened to my concerns and helped me choose the options that best fit my needs. Over the years, my needs changed. Again, they were very accommodating and economical. My rates monthly have remained consist. As a senior, I really appreciate that! There is one technician, David C. Who is the one that comes to my home most often. He is so very nice! Of all of them, he’s my favorite. He explained what the problem is, how to correct it and ford in s redo able amount t of time. He’s been on call when I had problems after hours and always offered to come right out. Thank you David C for always being so helpful and never making me feel stupid or foolish. I appreciate the security you’ve given me.

Very dissatisfied with camera systems. Chose Per Mar due to local presence. 2 outdoor cameras plus doorbell camera. 2 outdoor cameras trigger 99+ notifications every night. Tree leaves blowing in wind trigger notification. Door bell camera notification alerts 2 minutes after door bell is pushed. Technichian came back at our request and said everything was working as intended. I regret the purchase and will cancel at end of contract and go with a different security system.

Our technician that does our semi annual testing is great. She sets up her own appointments and make adjustments if necessary. The reports are sent out quickly also. I have 100% trust in her ability to perform the tasks as required by the state of Wisconsin. The rating of a 9 is based more on her productivity and professsionalism, as Per Mar also has monitoring and a service departments. The monitoring department seems to be understaffed as I could be on hold at times. I've had problems with our fire alarm panel in the past, and there are many kinds, so I've decided to reach out to specific alarm electricians for repair work.
