I am extremely dissatisfied with this vendor. I have had issues since the building of my home over a month ago. I had a new home built and Vector was the preferred alarm company. We did have several delays in the building process (supposed to move in sometime in March '12 and did not get in until December '12). There are a few issues, and this happens to begin all of them. According to Vector's records, our service (and thereby warranty) date is March '12. This means that I had a bill for 9 months which
took care of for me. Unfortunately, he did not change the service date to December. Also, some of the components were not working / installed correctly, so I refused to pay the bill until everything was working. Again,
handled all of that, but again, did not update the proper service date. One of the components was the touchscreen in the Master bedroom, the other was the thermostat. I have had this system now for roughly 10 months, and the thermostat is constantly resetting itself. I get email notifications that at first I thought were the 'emPower' notifications letting me conserve energy. They subject line states that the thermostat temp was reset to 80.0F, and then another stating 72.0F. Well, it turns out, that is just the thermostat restarting. I have opened two tickets with Vector w/r/t the issue with the thermostat. The first ticket was met with a response
to 'your settings are wrong', and the second with 'a third party installed your thermostat, take it up with them'. Both of these statements are incorrect. The settings are not the issue, and the thermostat was replaced by Vector when the touchscreen device was finally installed because the original thermostat was the wrong model. The support staff are sticking to their guns and going by the paperwork which means that my service is now out of warranty, because according to them it is almost two years of service, Not to mention that I have made multiple updates to the service tickets, for over a MONTH now, with ZERO contact from Vector. I called in this morning, and was told that the ticket numbers that I provided, from the alarm.com website, were not ticket numbers that vector uses. This is infuriating to me. Not to add, with this current cold snap, if my thermostat goes out, we have no heat. This is completely unacceptable. I would not recommend anyone using a service that is this unorganized or unwilling to respond to a paying customer.

Foster staff were very helpful, offered excellent advice on interior design and clearly enjoyed their work. The Foster showroom had a large, varied suite of materials from which to chose the tile, paint, plumbing hardware and wood paneling grains / colors. Legal matters also were handled very professionally. We knew exactly what was going to be done, the precise phasing of the work and had selected all the materials well before project start. The project manager and the lead carpenter conducted a walk-thru with us before project start to explain how each part of the project would be done and to confirm work site conditions. The lead carpenter briefed us each day on progress, consulted with us when he found a condition that had not been visible during the walk-thru and made great suggestions for small changes to the design plans that resulted in improving the final look in the rooms. We reviewed the project blueprints with the project manager before we signed the contract and then reviewed the blueprints and project schedule with the lead carpenter at least weekly. So we knew the precise status of the project from start to finish. All materials were on hand when the project started. Progress payments were built into the contract and were based on satisfactory completion of tasks. At the end of the project we put only three minor things on the punch list. The lead carpenter identified two of them as we had not noticed them.
This was a great experience for us.
For our next remodeling project we'll go to Foster. No need to look anywhere else.

We have been using them for the past 5 months; the customer service has always been really friendly. In comparison, I don't think they are more expensive, and we have never had an incident where any one had tried to break into our home, or we have never had a fire, to put them to the test of how good their service was or how reliable they are.

Hated salesperson made promises that couldn't be kept, installation crew was wonderful even though it took two days instead of one and they were very understanding of me being upset with salesman

Technicians very courteous and friendly. They showed up the next day and had the system installed in a couple of hours. Have had no problems with the system at all.

Salesman & technician were very professional, as was the company owner, when I got through to him, but I have to rate the overall experience as 'average,' primarily because of the responsiveness (or lack thereof) of the office staff when I encountered a pricing/service discontinuation question, and promises made by the owner to reimburse me 2 months' monitoring fees were not followed through on. As to whether or not I'd recommend them, or use them again, remains to be seen, depending how my experience is, going forward. I indicated 'yes' primarily because 'TBD' wasn't an option.
