We were a long-term customer (years) without knowing that EEIcould not tell at their end whenever our alarm system could NOT send them a signal. We are retired and were gone for 2 months, during which time we had a possible lightening strike that put our system out of service, for how long we don't know. We assumed we had protection (monitoring) but we did not.
Winslow Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
charged us without providing the service, because they could never tell when THEIR system was not working.
When we returned home, both our wall alarm-control pads were beeping loudly and it was clear the system was out of order, but
Winslow Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
could not detect that. Even when we then called
Winslow Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
, they could not tell at their end that the system was not working at all. (We do have a battery back-up, but that does not help in this situation.)
Winslow Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
will never tell you this is a possibility when you buy their service. If ANYTHING puts your home service out of order,
Winslow Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
will not know it, and you will be unprotected until you personally find that your system is down. What use is it if you expect protection 24/7, but
Winslow Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
can never tell you when you are NOT protected? They will certainly collect your money 24/7.

requires advance payment QUARTERLY for their service. When you quit their service (as we did), they withhold a full month's refund, claiming you must give them 30 days' notice to quit. Apparently that is somewhere in the fine print on the back of their service contract. BUYER BEWARE of both issues above.

Although the system is not installed by an actual front point technician the phone services are fantastic and make installation easy as pie!

If you're not handy with basic tools better hire someone to do your install. Even though everything comes with adhesive strips for easy installation sometimes door and window frames won't allow the sensor and magnet to match up so you improvise. I used a chisel to bury the magnet flush with my door frame. It's hardly noticeable now.

can help find someone qualified in your area. I even bought some aftermarket ZWave lighting control switches and their helpful technical staff were happy to help me join them to my system. Their customer service is second to none so now I see why so many positive reviews. My only wish is that their tech help line was 24/7 just like the monitoring is. Some people might need tech help after 10pm Central. The ZWave stuff has been reliable so far. I'm waiting to see how it handles the cold Midwest winter.

After using the system for about a year and a half I moved and asked to have the system turned off. Yet I was charged $50 for this month. I disputed the charge with my credit company and the money deducted from my card was returned. That is when the problems began. I was told I owed $672.09 for stopping service at my old address, this despite having been told that this charge would be waived if I installed the system in my new home. I made arrangements to have this done. The charge was not waived. Instead I began to receive daily calls demanding that I pay. The callers spoke as if they were a collection company. At no time did I receive anything in writing, though I asked them to send me a bill and written explanation of the charges. I finally gave up and to protect my credit rating I paid the bill and cancelled installation at my new home

To avoid paying $3,000 plus for the equipment I do not have any alternative but to pay the fee, which is at their prevailing rate. They quoted $235; however, they also stated the equipment had to be tested and in working order. Therefore, it could be any amount they want to charge.

I am completely happy with
Winslow Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
, and would not hesitate to recommend them again. I spoke with their rep on the phone, he explained the advantages of their system, and was very low-pressure. I went around the house, we spoke again to spec out the system, and a few days later it arrived at my house. Installation is VERY VERY easy. Everything has double sided tape on it and you simply stick the sensors where they tell you to. (they also accept screws for a more permanent install) Take about 1-1.5 hours to put the whole thing in, then give them a call and they activate the unit. Super
Winslow Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
and effective.
Followup customer service is also very very good. When you need tech support, they are available within a minute or two on the phone.
The phone app is great. It allows arming/disarming, geofencing with a smart phone (basically arms/disarms when the phone leaves/approaches the house), and you can track all the sensor activity even when the system isn't armed.
You will note my system cost was about 1000; my house is mostly on the first floor so I added quite a few glass break sensors. It is also an old house so I went a bit overboard on smoke detection. Note that a competitor in the area quoted me over 2500 for the same type of system, so
Winslow Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
provided quite a bit of savings. (also to note that smart-phone service with the competitor was 50 vs 43 for

)

Great! After having several different security systems in the past and if you move you have to start over it's great that if we move we can just take this system with as it's a self install stystem. My husband was able to easily install everything in about an hour and the set up was
Winslow Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
. we've had the system for almost 4 months now and have had no problems with it other than one motion sensor that kept falling off the wall but
Winslow Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
was very responsive sending us new tape to stick it to the wall. Screwing the motion sensors into the wall is another option and in the end that's what my husband did. The times the alarm has been activated
Winslow Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
has promptly called to be sure everything is ok. They have been courteous each time. Though not the cheapest monthly service fee we think they are by far the best we've had. If I had to complain about anything it would be the fact that you have to pay for yard signs which we've never had to do before and seems like they should be free as you're actually advertising for the company by having them in your yard.

I like this product and the customer service I received.
I placed a phone call to
Winslow Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
and spent about 20 minutes on the line with their representative.
I provided some basic info in terms of number of windows, doors, basic house layout. He then
presented me with some recommendations and provided me several options to choose from regarding the
sensors. Honestly, I was very impressed with the level of professionalism and depth of knowledge the
representative had.
Within a couple of days I received a small box in the mail. It included a base unit that you plug in the wall, and all
the sensors. For our house there were about 7 which included door sensors and a couple of motions sensors.
It took me all of about 10 minutes to install the sensors which were done by peel and stick. System comes preprogrammed so it automatically recognizes the sensors. Batteries in the sensors last several years (I forget if it's 3 or 5 years). System is totally wireless and communicates via cellular signal. You can control the system with your smart phone and even allow a friend or family member access so they can do the same if for example they are watching your house for you while you are away.
System is easily expandable. For example I later added a flood sensor which is a small device placed on my utility room floor to sense for water. They also have a cold sensor to sense if the temperature drops too much, which I am considering since it would be good to know if your furnace goes out while you are away in the winter.
There are alot of features about this system I like including that it emails you if something happens like a local power failure, or if the alarm is tripped. All in all this was a great experience and I am really happy with this product.
