Home Security System reviews in Ashburn

The system was extremely easy to install and works exactly as advertised. I was actually surprised by how complete the alarm system is. A calming voice speaks to you, if there is a message - such as you are trying to set the alarm and a door or window is open - and tells you which one to close. The siren is piercing - as advertised! Truly any window or door can be set up with the detectors. One extra I did not expect, but a pleasant chime occurs whenever you open or close a door - when the alarm is off. I have kids, so I like this. I bought a few extra detectors to cover all my windows/doors. They preprogramed my additional detectors before mailing them to me, so the whole system talks to eachother properly. I feel much safer simply knowing that if a door or window is opened - I will know about it immediately. I got this system primarily for my safety and am more interested in using it when I am home and asleep, than to protect my belongings in my absence.
The only slight con is that the base mode has a very bright flashing blue light - that never goes out. It lights up my entire first floor at night. My cats think they live in a disco-tech.

Very nice, responsive staff. Received my equipment quickly and rather

to set-up. The only oddity people should be aware of, is that the sensor pair may not attach on doors where the surrounding trim has ornate molding close to the
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
(i.e. one sensor attaches to the door but the other adjoining sensor needs to attach to the trim). The sensors will have a terrible time sticking to the trim, unless you carve out the moulding so there's a 1/2 inch flat surface for it to adhere cleanly. So just fyi.
The staff is wonderful - very nice & helpful.

Overall, it went very well.
First, I have to applaud
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
for their Customer Service. Every time I called, I talked to someone live. No automated walk throughs, and no please stay on the line until the next available operator. My security consultant was

, and he was just a pleasure to do business with. He answered all my questions, and got my order processed through with no issues at all. Very friendly, and just completely professional from top to bottom.

should immediately give this guy a pay raise, because he's earned it.

Poor, our installer, arrived on time. At first, I didn't know it was him, because apparently
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
installers have to drive their personal vehicles. That, to me, was pretty low budget and really lacks professionalism IMO. If you're a security company, your image should be important to you, and a personal vehicle with no indication at all that the driver is a representative of
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
just isn't all that professional to me. Then,

gets out and smokes a cigarette. Again, just not professional, and I don't care for cigarette odor in my house. Not a huge deal to me, but it could be to someone else, so it's worth mentioning. Beyond that,
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
was friendly and good at his job. We had 19 window contacts, four door contacts, three smoke detectors, and two glass breakage sensors installed. To go along with one main control box on the first floor, and an auxiliary control box that we keep in our bedroom. We like it because you can either mount it to the wall or keep it portable. We keep it portable. All it needs is an electric outlet to operate. The installation took a few hours, but appeared to be flawless. After testing the sensors and getting us all set up on www.alarm.com,
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
was out the door after we didn't have any further questions.
An hour or so later, I picked up my home phone, and there was no dial
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
. I knew this had to do with the alarm installation, so I called
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
(who had given us his phone # if we had any questions/problems)... He told me that the likely culprit was a phone junction where my old ADT system and been hooked up in my basement. He
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
me through some steps in changing where some wires were connected to the phone junction, but nothing was working, and then we got disconnected. I was a bit irritated, and sent
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
an email. Not long after, he replied via email and said a manager would be calling me. A little while later,
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
the manager called me back, told me exactly what I had to do with two specific wires, and just like that, my phone was back in service. Excellent customer service all around there!!
We have had our service now for a little over a week, and we have had no problems at all. We get our alerts when our system is armed and disarmed, and we like how each family member can get their own code, so when I get an alert, I know who's arming or disarming the system. The system itself is a touch screen system, and it couldn't be any easier to use. I was an ADT customer for nearly twenty years, but I'm happy to be with
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
now.
A couple of Guardian Security yard signs and a handful of Guardian window stickers were included. Also, covers for the smoke detectors if/when you have a contractor doing work where a lot of dust is created. A great idea, because our alarm was set off by a contractor a few years ago, and a trusted neighbor who has our code had to to rush over and turn it off.
NOTE:

does the installation and any repair work the system may need. Guardian does the 24 hour monitoring.

When he came out, he looked around our house and saw what I wanted. The estimate for monitoring and text capability was $50 per month and for the equipment that he is going to install was $2000. Everything about him was excellent, possibly except the price, although I think that the price he quoted is fair for your getting. If I choose to get a security system, I would probably go with him.

I've never been more happy with an alarm system. Web site for configuration is well done, and the iPhone and Android apps work wonderfully. Customer service is incredibly helpful and solved any issues we've had with ease. As a prior customer of ADT and

, I can safely say I will never, ever go back to the "old" way of alarm systems.

The process from determining what we needed, to ordering and receiving the equipment, to set up and activation could not have been easier. The
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
representative that we worked with (Mo
Ashburn Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
) was extremely helpful and professional. The DIY set up was not difficult at all (especially after watching the videos on the web site). Overall, we are very happy with the experience that we have had with and would recommend

to anyone looking for residential security services.
