The
system is fantastic. It was a breeze to install and has provided us with no issues since installation. The couple of times that the alarm was accidentally initiated by visitors or our dog walker, the folks on the line were extremely friendly and helpful. We cannot recommend this enough!

Service from
was top-notch.
assessed our current system (carefully making sure that it could be easily updated with a new control panel) and suggested several new alarm locations for us to consider. Definitely an informative, low-pressure process. After receiving the proposal and discussing with
, we then scheduled the installation, which was performed by

exuded professionalism and concern for doing the job right, including, after the physical work, an explanation as to how to work the new system, including the online features. I would definitely recommend

We bought a house that had a previously-installed security system from ADT, but wanted someone to 1) come out and make sure it was sufficient, and 2) monitor it. We also wanted to move the keypad from an interior wall to just inside the front door. JR came out after work (even though it was after hours for him, too), and spent plenty of time going through the house, finding holes in the existing system, and suggesting fixes. When we decided on something, one of his crew came out and spent several hours at our house moving the keypad, installing window monitors on every window on the first floor (and one that I hadn't even thought about on the second--it's accessible if you climb on the roof, and I hadn't even thought about that!). He left our house clean as it was when we got there, and was quiet and respectful of our home. That was about a year ago. Then, because of a flub with Comcast (when ISN'T it Comcast's fault!?!), our system stopped communicating with the monitoring station. Not only did JR remember both me and my husband a year later, but he agreed to get someone to come out ASAP to handle resetting the system.
When it comes to service, I give them not only an A, but an A+++. The only reason I would downgrade them is that the equipment they installed in my home isn't as fancy as some of the touchscreen, wireless, fancy machinery you can get from other companies. However, it does match with what was already installed from the previous owner.

I shopped around a lot before choosin
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
. I chose them initially because they offered a 1 year contract (most alarm companies demand 3-5 yr contracts now).
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
works out cheaper over the long run even though you are paying more upfront; even with cellphone monitoring my price comes to much less than $50-$60 that ADT charges for cell based monitoring.
Self install was quite easy other than some minor hiccoughs, so far we have not had any issues with either hte system or monitoring service. overall I've had a good expereience with this company and would use them again

The installer was a clown. Very comical and professional. Mr
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
was awesome with my installation. He asked where my important areas were and he got right to work. He explained things to me in detail and I feel like I made a great choice. Even my mother said that the system was awesome and she was pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend this company. Highly! Thanks so much guys for making my 1st home purchase awesome!

Since my first contact this company, I have been receiving phone calls almost everyday with someone trying to convince me that they have the best deal. I told two separate sales representatives not to call anymore but still receive frequent calls. If I were considering them initially, I have since changed my mind due to their aggressive sales calls.

Pardon what may be a long review. I contacted
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
to get a quote for a security system after seeing the reviews here as well as the deals available. I was assisted by
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
who gave me information about the pricing as well as went over with me how I could use the Angie's List deal to customize a system suited to my needs (for example, I did not want a motion sensor but wanted an extra glass break sensor, etc.). Of course, I needed time to get other quotes as well as discuss the option with my significant other, not to mention I was not thrilled about the 3 year contract so I took his information and instructed him to call me back in a few days. Leaving my number was not an issue (as it may be for some) because if I found another company that suited my needs, I would have no hesitation saying so. Regardless, I happened to be very busy the next few days and wasn't able to take
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
's phone call or even research other companies. After having time to do so, I called
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
back with more questions and wanting more specifics with regards to the system since now I was more informed about other systems. (I had been thinking of going with Guardian since the house had been hooked up with it previously and I could reuse the alarm, read on if you have old equipment you want to reuse!!) He was very informative and patient and completely answered all of my questions. I told him I still needed to talk it over with my significant other and because our schedules were crazy with the new house and work, I would call him back again in a few days. Fast forward a few days and
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
calls me. I tell him that we have decided to go with
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
but that I haven't had time to purchase the system and that I would do so over the weekend and call him back. After purchasing the $99 system with lighting controls as per my discussion with
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
, I called back on Monday and he was able to completely customize my system for me, including swapping out lighting controls for a glass break sensor and a key fob for a smoke/heat sensor that I preferred. It was great that I was able to get the system that I truly wanted without any hassle.
Now, some people have said that the continued phone calls from
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
are hassling. I never found this to be the case.
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
called when I asked him to call and in the event I wasn't able to answer he left a message, possibly called back a second time later that day, but that was it. As to
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
, he was great and extremely helpful. And, in regards to comparisons to other companies, the 3 year contract is pretty standard and the monthly rate is similar to what else is out there also. I choose to go with
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
because of their great customer service and the fact that I can completely customize my system.
OK, so for the setup. That was pretty easy. The most tedious part was removing my old sensors that were already there (I'll get to that in a minute) but of course that has nothing to do with
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
. At first I had my doubts as to the quality of the sensors that are only held on by 3M adhesives. However, I screwed the control panel into the wall and the house already had the other sensors that were adhered to the wall and they have been there for years so I am reassured by that (and my experience with prior 3M adhesives and some Christmas decorations that peeled the paint off of my wall). Anyway, the sensors were setup in about 45 minutes (most of which was my instructing my significant other as to the correct locations, etc.) I called to activate the system around 9:30 PM hoping it wouldn't take too long since they close at 10. I talked to Nick (not sure of the last name and sincerely hoping that I got the name right since I didn't write it down) who was probably the most patient person I've talked to on the phone and very helpful. He stayed on the phone while I tested the 5 door/window sensors to make sure that we heard the beeps each time and went over the control panel with me. AND (!) since I already had a few door/window sensors as well as a motion sensor from the previous system that apparently are compatible with
Baltimore  Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
, he talked me through opening those up and helping my system to "learn" those sensors and instructed me as to the correct placement of the motion sensor, so technically I got a couple extra sensors for no charge (how awesome!) Hopefully that helps anyone else out there like that. Nick even went so far as to expedite ship some extra adhesives to me for the sensors. Then he helped me to set up a test period for the system and that was it. Easy (on my end). Since then, I've been able to access the status of my system via alarm dot com and had no problems there. It keeps a detailed log of the sensors.
So, long review short. I've had wonderful experiences with this company so far and I hope it continues to be as great from here on out.

I bought the $129 Pet Package deal from Angie's List and when I called they offered to swap out certain sensors in the package for ones that would be better- I didn't know when I initially bought the package that it would be customizable- they gave me honest advice on what I would need and I realized that some of the alarm components that had been installed for my old alarm had been unnecessary/redundant . When I got the system in the mail it was very easy to set up, the only problems I had were due to a non-standard door frame on my 100-year old house, but I made it work. I have called customer service a couple times to ask questions and the people were extremely nice and helpful. I also enjoy being able to arm and disarm the system from my iPhone, the app is very easy to use.
