I would HIGHLY recommend calling
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
for any installation or advice job, big or small. You can take his word and he doesn't try to upsell you something that doesn't fit to you needs or budget. He's great about knowing where to spend extra in a budget and where you can save so it all balances out with the best system you can buy. I have had no issues with my system over the last year.

even checks in to make sure everything is working as needed. You don't get that from Big Box stores.

We purchased a home in the Chicago area which came with a home theater system and the name and glowing recommendation of the person who had installed it. We contacted the original installer and had him come in to get the system up and running for us. Many weeks and many thousands of dollars later it became apparent that the original installer did not know what he was doing....Definitely not good when he expects to be paid by the hour even if he can't get the system to work and even after our purchasing what he told us would be necessary to bring it up to date. After telling the man we no longer required his services we contacted
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
at
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. They came out the very next day and evaluated the system. They then gave us a quote to fix and upgrade the system. We hired them and they were back within days to complete the job. Not only did they fix the original installer's mistakes but they also installed a wonderful system that our family can all use throughout the house. In the end, there was a small glitch in the system. I called
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and they came back the very next morning. They identified the issue and didn't leave until the system was working perfectly (no extra charge). We couldn't be more pleased and will recommend them to all of our friends!!!!

TruView seemed to know what was required during our initial phone conversation and our assessment meeting. The representative arrived on time, listened to what I was trying to accomplish, inspected the premises and made recommendations. I have installed similar systems in other homes in the past and TruView's cost for equipment and installation was very competitive. TruView was willing to consider alternative equipment and various installation locations, but ultimately I went with the equipment he was familiar with. Our original plan of hard wiring the camera system to the router and modem for internet access was too complicated and difficult in an older three story residence. A wireless connection alternative was suggested by me and was established after the purchase of an additional router and lengthy discussions by Truview with other consultants, including the system manufacturer and Apple technicians. This alternative approach worked very well for me, but resulted in the installation time being extended beyond TruView's initial estimates. It was accomplished in one day and there were no additional charges to me . The installers worked diligently, acted in a very professional manner throughout. The installation was a success and the live and recorded camera views can be accessed by me on my iPhone at anytime.

Highly recommend. My wife and I would hire them again. (1) They gave us a free estimate for the rooftop antenna installation. Other companies we contacted wanted to charge for the estimate (as much as $50). (2) They supplied everything necessary to get the job done (antenna, antenna mount, cable wire, etc) and had it all ready to go the day of the appointment. (3) Everyone we dealt with at
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
was professional and very pleasant. (4) They gave us a fair price and were true to their estimate cost. (5) The owner,
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, gave us a follow-up call to make sure everything went well and that we were happy. FYI - We located them on the Service Magic website where there are tons more excellent ratings for

I can't imagine why anyone would use an alarm company other than
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
! We called around a number of places to get price quotes, and Alert provided not only the best rate, but also had the most favorable terms. They bill for alarm monitoring by the quarter, and if you choose to cancel service you
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
only what's left in your quarter; other companies require a 2- or 3-year contract and have fees for early termination. Alert also provided top-notch service. They had to come to our home four times, and the three different technicians who showed up were extremely professional, courteous, and helpful. Because the developer of our condo had had less than optimal equipment installed, Alert had to upgrade several components, and they did it all without charging us for the parts!
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
(the Alert sales guy) is a pleasure to talk to, as well. Unlike other companies, he doesn't try to pressure you into buying more equipment by making you feel unsafe. I would recommend
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
to anyone, without reservation.

Their pricing was way off the
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
5 to 7 times other estimates. It is strange since they are in Costco and their pricing wasn't nearly at that level. I can only guess they just didn't want the business....

I can't be more pleased. From sales to install, everyone was very professional. The sales person went over all of the option and did not pressure us. The install was extremely clean. The installers went over all of the equipment to make sure I knew how to use it.

Good. They did a really good job. They had to trench a cable into the wall and left it a little messy. I had to clean it up, but other than that the job went fine.

It went great.
Arrived just as promised at 8AM.
Checked out what i wanted done and what other devices were involved.
Checked out the type of wall mount I had and type of wall it was to go on (plaster not dry wall).
Got his tools and started to work:
* removed all devices to a safe place
* removed the TV from the TV stand and gave me the old screws to store away with the old TV stand
* had me sit at the coach while he lifted the TV to check on its preferred location
* had me
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
the spot on the wall
* connected the brackets to the back of the TV
* used a wall stud finder (not sure if that's what that device is called) This took several minutes.
* put up the wall mount and used a level device to make sure it was level
* cleaned up after drilling in the wall mount ( moved the credenza to clean behind and around it) Used my
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
vacuum
* attached the TV to the wall mount and checked to see if level with level device
* attached a longer cord/cable to the air antenna so if needed I could move the antenna to either side of the TV
* reconnected devices to the TV (sound bar, disc player, and antenna)
* had me check out each device to see if everything was working well. It was and is.
After everything was put into place you don't even see the cords.
My sound bar is sitting on the credenza and the cords of TV and other devices are
Chicago Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
behind it. Just as I wanted.
I have wi-fi and it works well too.
I will surely recommend and use Hot Wire again.
