Recent Review: I was searching for a cheaper alternative to home security monitoring. My family and I are on a tight budget, and we could not afford the steep charges from Suddenlink and other local home security providers for their systems. The two things causing the services to be so expensive were: (a) the cost of the monthly phone service we would need, since we don't have home phone service, and (b) the cost of the monitoring itself. We would had to pay about $80 a month, or more with these traditional companies! Thankfully I found NextAlarm after some careful googling. They are a fraction of the price of any of their competitors. Their system appeals to me, because it uses the internet rather than a phone line, saving lots of money. Their monitoring itself (done in the traditional way, with real people in a dispatch office) is also substantially cheaper on top of that. I paid $250 for the home security kit and now I only pay $13.50 per month for the monitoring! Its so cheap that the costs are literally offset entirely by the savings to my homeowner's insurance premium. The support staff at NextAlarm are great. They are so patient, and they will help you with anything related to your system. I have called them numerous times with little questions about this or that, and they are always super nice and knowledgable. They even walk you through how to make changes to your security system, step-by-step, when you want to change delay or change the programs. Please make note of the fact that they do not have a local installer to do the installation. The third-party vendor who offers an and quot;Instal cardand quot; will not be able to install your service in East Texas (they will refund your money once they see where you need the installation). Point being, you will need to hire a local handyman to install the home security system for you. As I already mentioned, I used Stephan du Toit -- (www.facebook.com/professionalhandymanservices). He charged my $60. Besides that little hiccup, NextAlarm is amazing. In summary, I love my service. I hope more people in my area sign up with them. It is such a great deal and they're so great!
Recent Review: Everything went great. I got the system a few days later and started to install it. All the devices were easy to put up all told it took about 45 minutes to get up and running. During the install I set the alarm off and Getsafe called me right away. I like the way it looks in my home and by that I mean I hardly notice it is there. I like being able to control the system from my phone and being able to check on my house with the camera when I am away.
Recent Review: It started with the name Pinnacle. It started going downhill maybe when somebody else bought it. My husband picked them. He had a cold call and then he went with it. I think we had another system at that time.

They went right to work upon arrival and completed the work as fast as possible. They cleaned up after themselves and were very well organized. The charge was actually a few dollars less than originally estimated.

When they did come out they were fairly responsive. They could have provided a higher level of technology at a better price. There were a lot of enhancements available out there and if I wanted any of them they were going to charge me big time for them even though I was a continuing customer. That got me upset because there were many others out there that provided really great value and things like having access to it on your web or phone. They could do that but they were going to have to come out and change my system and they were going to charge me big time. They never offered me even to upgrade my system.

It was an Angie's List Big Deal that I purchased. It was wonderful. They sent me the instructions for the set up and it was very simple and easy. It works just perfect. They said you can add on very easily so that was nice. What they do is if they gave you a 10% coupon, you cannot use that if you already used Angie’s List deal. So I thought I was gonna buy that thru Angie’s List and then later on use it to add more item but you couldn’t use the 10% off.I used the deal within 2 weeks of purchase. They give you a call within a couple of days and then the alarm gets sent out within 2 weeks. They've been great. If you need them for a comment, their response time is great.

This was the most knowledgeable and professional company that I have had the opportunity to work with in years. The young men who did the actual work were professional, quiet, and polite. They stayed on the job and did not run around, spend time on the cell phone or waste time visiting, should I go to see the progress. At the end of each day the room was clean. When they left all boxes were put away in the attic for us. The systems were checked and double checked and worked perfectly. I was extremely pleased.

They have been awesome. They were very timely and responsive to my questions. They were empathetic to my concerns and reasonably priced. So far they've done everything they said they would do. Its $59 a month and I also purchased a special smoke alarm that will automatically call the police and fire department which was an extra $100 onetime expense.

Mr. Gray could not have been more pleasant on the phone. When I told him that I had purchased two of his Big Deal coupons, he had all of my information at hand. Although I had purchased the coupons for installation of ceiling fans, we had a more immediate issue--using an electric heating element to start the charcoal tripped our GFI. This interfered with the security system and the terrace level cable boxes. Both of these systems were plugged into the same outlet, and it was crowded! The plugs barely fit together! The home is new to us, and it took us a while to figure out what was happening. Mr. Gray stated that a security system should never be on a GFI (for obvious reasons!) All of the outlets were tested and the GFI was working correctly and didn't need to be replaced. They then installed two new outlets, removing both the cable and security system from the GFI circuit. We just paid $45 for parts; labor had already been paid for in the coupon. Before they left, we discussed the placement of the two ceiling fans and the type we should get that would work with the present wiring, or the possibility of running extra wires. I will have Mr. Gray back after I buy the fans. I am so impressed with his integrity. When I called him, I was sure that we had a major wiring problem that would require an extensive, messy fix. It took much less time than I had planned. Both guys had great personalities, and I thoroughly enjoyed having them in my home! Highly recommend!
