"Unfortunately, I didn't find their estimate to be as thorough or in-depth as the others that I received, and their estimate didn't include all of the services that I wanted to be completed.

and the
team are awesome! I switched from ADT and got a better system at an even better price! The installation was quick and customer" service is unbelievable.
was able to work with my budget while still providing me with the quality security system I needed AND the smart home features I wanted. The auto lock is great for having out of town family visit without worrying about being home in time to let them in. Now all it takes is a few clicks on my mobile app!

"Waste of time. They came for estimate. They take forever to return calls. I was going to use them to install home theater but I can not get them to answer my calls. They texted me 5" days ago: "I have no service here for a few hours. I will call as soon as possible." 5 days later no call back. don't waste your time.

Home automation

Home automation systems are the next generation of high-end consumer electronics. They allow users to program default settings for their home that match their own personal preferences and remotely manipulate certain appliances via smartphones and other remote technologies.

He hooked up all the cable instillation's to all of the TV's in my house. He mounted the TV's to the walls. Repaired the holes in the walls and provided all the electrical work. He also cleaned up after himself. This is the second time I've used him. He knows what he is doing! Very professional and courteous.

The service turned out well. The technician was able to wire the house up whereas other providers we have had before were unable to. It was extremely hot and he was working up in the attic, he did a really good job.

I have been researching for the past 2 months in finding not only the highest rated home security system in the country but also one that will fit our needs. Upon calling
Winston Salem Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
to inquire about the service they provide, I was able to to talk to a live sales associate within in minutes. The sales associate whom I spoke with was polite, friendly and knowledgeable about the product and features of their home security package. Not only he was able to explain in detail how their home security system is different from others but he also customized a home security system package that fits my needs and was able to save me $100. I contacted

I went with
Winston Salem Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
because I liked the looks of their equipment, and the fact that if the alarm goes off, they talk to you (or a potential intruder) through the keypad. If you can't tell them the password, the police are called with a verified alarm. With other alarms, if it goes off and they call you but can't get you on the phone, the police are called, but it is not called in as a verified alarm. So response time can be very different.
ANYway. That's a moot point, because all the fancy equipment in the world doesn't matter if it doesn't work! Also very unhappy with the customer service. My experience in bullet points:
1) High Pressure Sales Tactics: When I called in to get information, the sales person pressured me to put money down and commit because it was the "last day" that they were running their "insane special" of a free activation and equipment package. I just went on the site now and it says the same thing (last day for free activation). He said I could go ahead and lock in the special if I just put down the "minimum allowed amount" of $33 and the installation guy would charge the rest of my first month's fee ($20.99) when he came to set up my system. I also asked him about their F rating on the BBB site, he gave me some storyabout the fact that the BBB is a scam, and they don't have a good score cause they don't pay for a good rating. They don't participate in the "scam." Yikes. Should've just hung up there. But for some reason, I decided to give it a shot anyway.
2) Extra Charges: The installation guy said the salesperson wasn't authorized to do that, and that the $33 hadn't been charged. So he charged the full $53.99. Just checked out my account, and I've got charges for both $33 and $53.99.
3) Installation: The install took about an hour, and when the guy went to test the two-way communication with the control center -- before the system had even been set up, so there was no code or password set up yet -- the person on the other end started asking him for the password. He repeatedly told him he was the service tech setting up the system, and the person on the other end (at an excruciatingly loud volume) kept asking for the verbal password. He disconnected, and I got a call from the service center asking again for my password. I told him that we didn't have one, the service tech was at my house setting it up. He asked for it again. I told him what my password would be (thinking maybe I had set it up and didn't remember), he said that was incorrect. The cops were dispatched. The service tech was able to cancel the dispatch in time. He also had no yard signs available and said they had to be mailed, which would take about 14 business days.
4) Equipment Problems: The first night we tried to set the alarm, our front window sensor didn't work. After an hour of troubleshooting over the phone (which included moving the sensor around, taking the battery out, etc), it still didn't work. Service rep said he could send me a new sensor but it would take 14 business days for it to arrive. Expedited shipping was not an option because "the shipping department asked them to stop offering that because they were getting too backed up." Also it would take 3 weeks for a service tech to come out. The kicker: A few days after the system was installed, the system was set, I walked into the house and the alarm didn't go off. Went over to the control panel and it was as if I'd never walked in the house. Still set. My faith in the system is gone, decided to cancel.
5) Cancellation: I called in to cancel the service 10 days in, they tried to tell me my cancellation window had passed. The service rep who pressured me into committing to buy said I'd have a 30 day window to try out the system with no risk or obligation. But when I looked at my paperwork and my cancellation date was different than what i was told. Just 5 days after the system was installed. My fault for not reading the paperwork thoroughly, but after the stressful installation, with the cops being dispatched, etc, I was just frazzled and wanted to get it over with. Anyway. The lady that I called to cancel with told me that they'd have to send out a tech to check my equip before they could cancel. When i said no to that, she checked the notes and said "oh okay we can extend your cancellation period." I guess they were just hoping I'd say "oh well"? She then said I needed to sign and scan in my written cancellation notice, that I'd receive conf. within a few hours, but it couldn't be done over the phone. I got no call, called in the next day and the guy I got laughed and said "oh that can take up to a week for our team to process your cancellation, but if you forward that to me, I can do it over the phone right now." So he processed the cancellation, and supposedly I'll be refunded in a week. We'll see.
The ultimate kick in the pants: a service tech is scheduled for tomorrow morning to come remove my equipment. I couldn't get someone out for 3 weeks when the equipment was faulty, but somehow, magically, they can get someone out in less than 12 hours when it's to get their equipment back.
Lesson learned: don't go with a huge company to protect your home. It's just a hot mess. Also - pay attention to Better Business Bureau ratings!

We love the home automation features, which have come in handy more than once! One example of a time when we used our home automation was when I was in the hospital giving birth to my daughter. My in-laws arrived from out of state and went straight to our house to let our dogs out. I was able to unlock my front door and disarm my alarm from my hospital bed - how cool is that?!?!
Installation of the alarm was seamless. I called customer service once to change some information on my account - they were pleasant and helpful. I highly recommend

Excellent installation and instruction service provided by
Winston Salem Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. After initially meeting to find out what we had, he made suggestions on placement of a second motion detector. Original sensors were all hard wired and
Winston Salem Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
was able to utilize them and added a wireless motion detector. Very professional. He even returned a couple of days later to help with a landline that was not functioning, I though it was due to the installation. Since we switched to VoIP, there was no need for the landline anymore and
Winston Salem Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
helped with utilizing preexisting prewired phone lines to be connected to the VoIP service. That was above and beyond his original task. Now we are able to remotely access our alarm system via cell phone. We are able to Arm/disarm system, lock/unlock entry door and open close the garage door.
