CLARRY'S ELECTRIC SVC
Went quickly.  The electrician came within the 1/2 hour window he had said he would, was polite, looked like he knew what he was doing.  He told me he would email an invoice ( I paid by check but wanted an invoice to give to the landlord).  He said he would show on the invoice his recommendation to re-wire the house and protect the fixture for this very old, poorly maintained rental home we rent.  I said great, I would love to give the landlord an invoice showing those recommendations. Haven't seen an invoice yet after a couple weeks have gone by. I thought this was expensive for 20 minutes work, but maybe it's the going rate.     update:  I rec'd the invoice and will be able to pass it on to the landlord.  It will be good for her to see a professional's recommendation for upgrading her property's electrical for safety reasons.  I am sorry that the going rate for service and travel is so expensive.  I think that $60 would have been a more reasonable price.  Thanks.

ASECURITY ALARM SHOP INC
Very professional from the beginning. my wife and I was looking for a security company to provide a security system for our House that we purchase. We first met Jim which he is the CEO of the company he gave us a good presentation at the shop. Locally owned company. Then Mr. Lee The sales manager came to our house and gave us free estimation on installing our security system and our surveillance cameras. And scheduled our installation date. Then Joe The president of the company came with his technicians to ensure that everything was put in properly give us Hands-on training. It also surprise me even the president was working with the technician thumbs up to Joe. If you need a security company The security alarm shop is the way to go. In Hawaii They offer the best protection at the reasonable price. on my research no other company can offer the same.

NEVER USE THIS COMPANY!!  THEY ARE VERY PUSHY AND SEEM DESPERATE FOR BUSINESS!!!  If you elude to the fact that you may want to think about what they have to offer they become very pushy and start throwing "deals" at you. I told them i would think about purchasing their service after i did some more research.  Protect America has STALKED me ever since!!  They have called me 4 and 5 times a day for the past 5 days!  When i called them to file a complaint they put me on eternal hold and never came back to assist me!  As a matter of fact before placing me on hold the phone operator asked me for the nature of my complaint and before i gave my answer she said "what, we are calling you too much!"....So apparently they know they are stalking people for their buisness!  It's ironic that i called them to get security for my home and now i need protection from them!!!   Waaaayyy  too aggressive!!  Even if i liked their product i would never purchase it due to their unprofessionalism and aggressiveness! I decided to go with Time Warner Cable for home security!....Which i love!!

AAPN Alarm Co
They installed 2 motion detectors which is only set off by a person --- not a gecko or high winds, and 27 window sensors, 4 doors.  They are neat & clean.  Just one installer did the whole house.  Diligent and worked right through, had to tell him to take a break for lunch.  After the installation, gave me  thorough instructions on the keypad and made me practice using it even though there is a manual & CD with instructions.  You will also need to file a police alarm registration permit and he helped with that also.    When all was said and done, there is a feeling of extreme relief that my home again is now a very safe place to be whether I'm at home sleeping or whether I'm away on a vacation.  And, if there are any attempts, the response time is 11 minutes for the police to arrive.   So day 1 after the install, my husband who didn't listen carefully to  instructions for the key alarm, armed the house while I was still sleeping.  There are 2 settings.  One for arming all doors, windows, motion detector.  The second setting arms just the doors & windows so anyone inside can move around freely without setting off the motion detector.  Much like Ft. Knox.  The key alarm shows the 2 icons with a person leaving a house and the second icon with a. person IN THE HOUSE.  He was supposed to hit the 2nd icon.  But, in his rush to leave, he hit the first icon.  So as soon as I got up & started moving, the alarm went off.  I quickly went to the keypad, punched in my code and the alarm stopped.  3 minutes later, I got a phone call from my husband.  The alarm company had called him to tell  him there was an intrusion and he had to tell them our code word to signify that it was ok.  It WORKS!!!

DAPN Alarm Co
For years, we paid them about $25/month for alarm monitoring services.  Then, I came to find out there are cheaper monitoring services available.  Just Google "alarm monitoring" and you'll see ways you can have your system monitored for far less than $25/month.  I asked APN if they could match some of the other competing alarm monitoring company's lower fees.  They couldn't but came close so I decided to stick with them for a few more years.  To get the lower monthly fee, I had to pay annually so I was essentially locking myself in for a year.  Ok, so everything sounds good right?  Well, it was until I decided that we didn't need to pay for monitoring services anymore because we simply didn't use the alarm system enough to justify it.  When I called to end my service, I was informed that my contract had AUTOMATICALLY renewed for 5 YEARS!  I said what?  I didn't renew anything much less for 5 years.  They said it was in the original contract.  (please read the fine print)  I said that was B.S. and after giving my money to them for about 8 years, they try to stick me with a bill to "buy out" the rest of my contract for 5 additional years. Can you believe that?  All I was trying to do was terminate my service with them.  To make a long story short, I had to hire a consumer lawyer to assist me with these chumps.  Once they saw that I was not relenting and decided to fight them on it and was willing to take them to court, only then did they give up. So here's a summary.  I think it's fair to have a contract for a certain period of time.  In our case, the original contract was for 5 years which we satisfied and went beyond.  it's typical for an alarm company to give you a cheap installation and make up for it with a long-term contract for monitoring services.  That's were the money is made.  However, who in the right mind would sign a contract if they knew it was going to renew for 5 years automatically?  nobody of course.  After you finish your 2 year term for your cell phone contract, do they automatically lock you in for another 2 years?  no, you get to go month to month after that.  If you get poor service, you can switch.  However, APNs game is to lock you in for another 5 years and try to make you "buy out" the remainder of your renewal contract.  It's very unsavory tactics.  Unfortunately, alarm companies are famous for this.  Some law firms have considered class action suits because it's such a widespread problem across the U.S.  try to google it and you'll see. My advice is to decided whether you'll really use the alarm.  In our case, we just never used it nearly enough to justify the cost.  Also, make sure your contract does not have any automatic renewals.  Some states have enacted legislation to protect consumers from these multi-year automatic renewals.  Unfortunately, Hawaii does not have this legislation, so be aware.  Read the contract before signing and specifically ask the sales agent if the contract automatically renews!

FUnited Security Services Inc
You would have to be insane to hire this firm! I just got back from Small Claims Court (12/09/2009) trying to get back monies that I had to expend due to the lies and perjuries of one of their agents, a security guard, who lied to the police to have me arrested and charged with harassment. His lies were so overt and obvious (backed by a video tape of the events he swore were true to the Court, but which were obvious lies on the tape) that I was found not guilty after a 2-day trial. However, this matter stretched out over 18 months, causing me enormous aggravation. The company knew the guard was a liar and a psychopath but did nothing at all to stop his actions, provided no competent training to him and failed miserably to provide oversight and guidance. When I phoned United to complain, I found the phone number provided by one of the managers was not his number (never heard of him), that the email address he provided was not valid, and furthermore, his name changes from first-to-last and back again when he gives it out. The company, United Security Services, Inc. has repeatedly failed to enforce the Rules and Regulations of our Condo Association, despite numerous complaints to the Association. They also fail to show up for scheduled job times. Other employees also lie on a regular basis, despite being sworn to tell the truth. When I attempted to get back the several thousand dollars that I had expended to hire an attorney to defend myself against their employee, I overheard another person libeling me concerning my dealings with United and the owner of United, who was present, did nothing to contradict this libel even though she (the owner) knew the accusations were false (if the owner bothered to read the various Incidence Reports generated by her employees). Finally, two days ago (05/20/2010) the Board of Directors of our Condo Association summarily fired United Security, for reasons I am not privy to, but not soon enough for me.

Recent Review: Heard about Lifeshield from a web forum, emailed the sales rep as a referral and the referrer was able to get $150 while I got a free network camera.  The network camera's quality is average at best ... they've since changed the referral program so the new subscriber now gets $100 store credit. Anywho, after emailing the rep with questions and requirements, getting on the phone to do the credit check, I got a kit to try out delivered to me.  I installed the base unit and connected the telephone line and ethernet cable (to internet), associated the GSM unit for the backup cell service, and installed the door/window sensors and motion sensors.  After about a week, I noticed the GSM unit kept losing signal, I emailed tech support and told them about the issue, did some troubleshooting with them which didn't fix the issue, and a replacement GSM unit was send to me.  While that was happening, I noticed the broadband wasn't working ... turns out they had different starter kits: "Home Essentials Kit - Cell Ready" and a "Home Essentials Kit with Broadband" ... I was sent the wrong one.  They replaced that and everything has been fine since. A couple of notes: - I believe the sensor batteries are covered by Lifeshield for the length of the lease.  I had one die at the start of my contracted period, and they just sent a new battery after I emailed support.  The console will tell you which sensor has a dying battery. - I was without electricity for 5.5 days after Sandy hit.  The base and GSM units have backup batteries in them, so my system was still connected for 4 days.  I was on the phone with my friends checking my house 4 days after Sandy hit and I didn't know if the alarm was still working since I couldn't connect to it via the webpage nor app ... it was, about 30 seconds after they opened the basement door, the monitoring service called about the alarm!  So the base was able to keep functioning with the GSM unit!
