Atlanta Home Security Companies Reviews

"I am a tenant who has
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
as part of her lease. The system was already installed, but I deal with
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
for monthly monitoring service and maintenance. For awhile, things went well. We have basic service covering doors, and it worked well for about the first 6 months. Unfortunately though, we've recently run into problems with our system communicating with
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
, and it isn't been fully functional. This happens about once a month--the system will cease communicating with the monitoring center. So, if the alarm is triggered, you still get the benefit of the audible alarm, but then there's no message routed to the police. Since the alarm still works when we're having communication problems, I'll still leave it on to try to
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
potential intruders who could be scared by the alarm. But in addition to not being fully functional, it makes a horrible beeping that you can only stop temporarily. When I asked customer service, they said the only way to stop the beeping is to fix the problem or completely disable the system. So, basically, during communication issues (which happen about once a month) I can only have it on while I'm away, otherwise the periodic beeping drives me nuts. The customer service has been TERRIBLE. - Wait times on the phone are awful. I have never waited less than 10 minutes when calling, and wait times are usually over a half hour. - The landlord has purchased a maintenance package that should allow me to order maintenance service when I need it; however, they can't seem to keep a record of that, and call the land lord every single time and won't send a technician until the landlord gives them the OK to do so. - The wait for a technician visit is also awful. Every time we've needed a technician, we've had to wait at least a week for an appointment. This includes times when the alarm isn't working. We never get a break on our bill during the time between when the alarm ceases to function properly and when the technician can come out. They're also very firm with the scheduling: I was recently preparing to go out of town when the alarm broke. I called and asked if I could get an earlier appointment so the alarm would be working by the time I left. I was routed through 3 or 4 different managers before I was told that there were absolutely no earlier times. - Last time we had a technician out to deal with the communication issues, he couldn't find an issue. In my opinion, it was likely an issue with their network, but no one would acknowledge this, and the company and the technician basically told me there was no problem. They still charged the landlord for the visit. - Because the wait for a technician is terrible, and the problems may often be related to the network, and not your own system, they should REALLY consider having some sort of self-service walkthrough feature on the phone. However, there is NOTHING like this. There are no self help options, even if something as
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
as rebooting the system would remedy your issue.
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
insists that a technician come out for every issue, probably because they charge pretty high rates for this. I gather they make significant profit from this practice, but it sure is a pain in the a** for their customers.

"I had a salesperson come to the house and look at the system (which was an
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
system) and then sign me up for service activation. My payment for the first months monitoring was collected. An appointment was scheduled for a technician to come out and activate the system. When the technician came out he told me the cellular radio could not be reregistered and therefore my system could not be activated. He did not have a replacement communicator to install. He also told me one of my keypads was not operational and left without placing it back on the wall. He informed me I would have to speak with a sales person to determine the costs and reschedule an appointment. My check however was cashed the same day the technician came out. I was able to cancel my service and receive a refund. Beware the contract gives you three days from the day it is signed to cancel although the technician's visit will likely occur after that. I did not encounter a problem cancelling however.

"I called
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
and received upfront pricing and scheduled an appointment for service. I could not get an appointment as soon as I would have liked which is my only complaint. I was very happy to find that I did not have to let a salesman visit before the technician came out as with
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
, The first technician who came out (
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
) was able to get my system (a preexisting system in a foreclosure) up and activated. I wanted an additional item installed but the tech was honest about how it my not be as effective as I would want. He could have very easily just performed the work and charged me. I had to have a technician return to add an additional item. His name was
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
as well. He took the time to program some key fobs for me during the visit. He made sure I understood everything about the system. I am so pleased with
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
I will be using them for another home.

"Installation is easy. Sensors are very expensive especially if you have several external doors and rooms on the main level. Service works well, however, the website to control the service is not up to par. It often takes requires multiple tries to get alerts set up and the cameras frequently don't respond on the first try and often stop streaming video after a few minutes. The outdoor camera does not seem to work as well as the indoor camera. The outdoor camera feels like it is high quality but the first one I received had to be sent back and the replacement drops reception more often than the indoor cameras. The people that work at the company are very nice and have been very responsive to correct problems. The price of the set up was more expensive than I thought it would be and I'm not sure the cost justifies using the service over a cheaper option. I'm satisfied but not certain I would use the company again if I had to start over.

"Due to faulty wireless door contacts and some self-imposed error the alarm has been tripped several times. The "monitoring center" sounds more like someones living room. We recently had an alarm sound in the middle of the night, it rang for at least 5 minutes before we disarmed (we were uncertain if someone was in the house). NO call to the police (we called 911) and no calls to backup telephone contacts. Shame on us - you get what you pay for.

"This morning, I was awakened by a loud clicking sound from the alarm in the stairwell. When I determined the source of the noise, I went to the keypad and found it was unresponsive to entry of the code number.



I then called the
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
800 number. A service rep sent me to the basement in
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
of the electrical plug for the beige system box. Though I had no problem finding the box, I could not find an electrical plug in for it. He then sent me out to the garage to look for a circuit breaker, telling me that the alarm would not go off when I went out the kitchen door since the keypad was malfunctioning.



While I was flipping circuit breaker switches, the phone cut off and the alarm began sounding loudly, waking up the rest of the family. My son came downstairs with the alarm blaring, in the dark, as I had cut off all electricity to the house while following the
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
rep's directions. I called back to
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
on my cell phone and went through a series of directions from a second rep who didn't know anything about the first call. Eventually I managed to turn everything off.



The second rep said it was a malfunction of the keypad but did not offer to walk through any diagnostic on the phone or any remote service. She only offered to send out a technician for $150 for the first 30 minutes and something like $35 for each additional 15 minutes. (I may be slightly off on those numbers since I did not have a pad and pen handy while running around the house talking with her on the cell phone.)



I explained that we have been customers for 18 years, that service has deteriorated ever since
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
took over, that we have had several disruptive malfunctions in the past year, and that I had been thinking for the past year about going to a competitor. I did not get the impression that they care at all.



After this experience I went to Angie's List and started checking ratings of home security companies. This one is hardly a star.



After 18 years (15 with
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
/Broadview and 3 with
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
), I am leaving this conglomerate that obviously does not give a
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
about my business.

"This was a horrible experience. My husband and I had been trying to reach a sales person for 6 months to discuss installing camera's as an addition to our security system. The sales person sold us on the
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
Gold service promising great same day next day service and "Gold" customer service. This story is far to long to type. Long and short. We waited 6 weeks for the install and were promised two installers to handle the job. Morning of install one person showed up. After seven long hours. Not one camera was installed. He changed one deadbolt with a special code system however, it was not installed correctly an we can no longer use the door until it is fixed. He replaced one key pad with a new key pad and changed our passcode. NO camera's were installed and he left when I was gone to pick up a child and left house open and unlocked. We are left in a worse situation than in the am and have no camera's did I mention that detail? The sales rep had no idea when they would be able to get back out. I am done with
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
period. The service sucks even the "gold" service.

"We recently reached out to several companies to get estimates for a home security system. After reading tons of reviews and doing some research we decided to buy our system from AMSA, and our experience with AMSA was absolutely amazing. The amazing experience began when their sales associate (
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
) came to our home to discuss our requirements.
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
was very professional and knowledgeable, and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her on the design of our system (and how to install it so it looked nice).
When it came to actually wiring everything up and getting it working, we were blown away by how awesome our installer (
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
) was.
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
listened to us, was VERY thorough during the installation, and took the time to discuss our system with us in detail. I truly appreciate the time
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
spent discussing the system with us, and I would recommend AMSA to others on this point alone.
The entire experience from sales to install went pretty much perfect (one of the glass breaks had to be adjusted after the fact), and our home s now being actively monitored by AMSA. We accidentally set off the alarm once and the AMSA team called before I could get to the panel to reset the system. Yes, they are that fast!! We feel safer in our home because of the alarm system AMSA installed, and I have the peace of mind knowing that a top notch guy like
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
installed it!
If you are looking for a home security system look no further. These guys are the real deal, and the hundreds of rave reviews speak to the quality of the work they do. If you decide to go with AMSA make sure you ask them to have
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
install your system. He did an incredible job installing our system, and I'm sure he will do an incredible job for you.

"After a case of personal identify theft, we felt the need to better secure our home in addition to our accounts and information. We spoke with
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
in April, along with one other company. In the end, we chose
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
due to their alarm system design specific for our house and the comfort we felt with our Security Consultant,
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
.
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
was very competitive with the other company we evaluated. Installation was scheduled for 5/13/2011, and the installation technician showed up within the specified window of 8-10 AM. He was very knowledgeble and quickly went to work after we walked the house to get him familiar with the layout, crawl space, attic, etc. He spent about 4 hours wiring the house, installing equipment and going over the operation of the system with me. I was extremely impressed with the work he did, being able to completely route the wiring so that it was
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
form sight. He made it look easy to retrofit an existing house. If I choose to add additional security features to add on to my now existing system, I will not hesitate to contact
Atlanta Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
again to install the new equipment.
