The entire process went very smoothly. Our sales contact visited our home and recommended a security system that was effective, but reasonably priced. He took the time to answer all our questions. The installer arrived on time and reviewed our requirements before doing the installation. Hecompletely cleaned up after the installation. Then he thoroughly reviewed operation of the security system with us.

It took a little longer for us to install it than we had expected. We weren't sure we were getting the motion sensors in the right place and whether they were working or not. However, when we tested it later, they seemed to be fine. When we had questions, we just contacted

and were immediately connected with someone who walked us through whatever issue we were having. Their customer service is absolutely fantastic and we are really happy with our security system.

Process was relatively seamless although the phone connection would not work. I called support and they walked me through doing a hard restart (

) and that seemed to fix it. It's been working great in the following couple of months.
Hardware is easy to install and entry sensors have a few inches of play which works well in an old house like mine (some other company's sensors have to stay very close which).

did a good job of notifying me of local permits and even sent
Cincinnati Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
copies of the forms to fill out and send in. I've been very pleased with their service so far.
Luckily I haven't had to test the system with actual burglary but so far my experience with
Cincinnati Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
has been a lot better than with other companies. It's easy to swap around components and I love the no contract.

Pre-install evaluation/quote and installation went very well.

and

were great and did pressure us to purchase any additional equipment. They said we always have the option to add on in the future if we want.

The installers were friendly, quick and helpful in showing me how to
use the security system and set up. Since install, with the winter
weather i have had the power go out and each time, someone has called
within two minutes to alert me that my security system was on backup
power. I've accidentally set the alarm off and they didnt yell at me. Whenever I have a problem/ question I am able to reach someone 24/7. GREAT SERVICE and I'd recommend. Especially since they're local.

We were switching from one system to another. We were able to use most of the monitoring equipment we already had but we did add motion detectors in two places, which was recommended by the installer. Installer was very helpful in explaining how the system worked and what the monthly monitoring fee would be.

I simply followed all the directions - which were very easy to follow - and installed it myself. The other best part of this system is the customer service staff is prompt and quick to get back to you w/ answers to your questions. I emailed on a weekend and got a response on a Sunday. If you call, they are right there to help.

I started looking at an alarm system after moving into a new home back in September. I research everything thoroughly and Angie's List is one of the tools I use to do the research. I looked at another vendor reviewed on Angies's List called Frontpoint since they had a huge number of positive reviews. However what I discovered in looking at Frontpoint in more detail was that their equipment deals on the surface look good, but that when you add all the other sensors I needed, the price worked out the same as

/LiveWatch. Also,
Cincinnati Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
uses the newer GE
Cincinnati Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
XTI system, while Frontpoint pushes the older
Cincinnati Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
XT system. The last item was monitoring costs.
Cincinnati Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
provides more services for a lower monthly fee. I can control lights, thermostat, motion camera and of course the alarm system for $39.95. Frontpoint was more by a few bucks, but offered less.
I did not seriously look at ADT and a few others because of all the other negative reviews and comments.
Because I have a ranch house, I need a lot of first floor window and door sensors. Some people like to use motion sensors instead of window and door sensors. I have a dog. I also have grandchildren staying at the house a lot. Motion sensors do not work well for me in most of the house because too many people or the dog could be moving around late at night when we set the alarm for "stay" as opposed to "away".
My total cost of equipment was around $800 bucks. Some people will give away the equipment, but charge a higher monthly fee and lock you into a 3 year contract to recover the cost of the equipment. Nothing is free in this world so it is just a question of pay me now or pay me later.
Also, the equipment from
Cincinnati Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
is NOT locked into this vendor like equipment from other vendors. So it can be moved to another monitoring service after a small one year commitment. They also offer a 90 out if you are not satisfied. In my opinion, you cannot beat this deal.
Because they are painting the house, I gave myself a month to install before actually activating my service. This is a self install system, but it is EASY to install.
November 2 was my activation date. Their representative called me and went over everything. They took the time to answer my questions. When there were a few unresolved issues at the end of our call, they called me back as they were working through them to keep me in the loop. As of November 3, all was resolved and the system is working just fine.
I also have a remote panel to control the system in the house. We can also control it via our iPhones. We also have some controllers on lights so we can turn them on at night when we are away from the house.
I am very happy with
Cincinnati Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
/LiveWatch and how they bring together a total solution with an easy to install system. Believe me, anyone can do this and because you do it yourself, you tend to know the system much better than if you turned over the installation to someone else.
The only comment I would make to
Cincinnati Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
is to monitor the social media and Angie's List at least twice a day to answer customer and prospect comments and questions. I noticed other vendors are very responsive on social media while
Cincinnati Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
....well not so much. People make decisions very fast and I almost went somewhere else waiting for responses on Facebook and Angie's List. But glad I was a bit more patient and still went with

Great, I called
Cincinnati Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
for a quote on a total alarm system for my house. The next step was he came back and installed the system and explained in detail how to operate it.
