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.

Recent Review: quick, easy, inexpensive.  I just wished they had cameras to go along with the rest of the security system.

BSecurity Equipment, Inc.
Everyone is very helpful and responsive. Unfortunately, I do not like the cameras. The image range is insufficient to capture the desired areas. SEi has been nothing but professional and helpful in trying to resolve my dissatisfaction.

ASimpliSafe Home Security
SimpliSafe is very easy to install and setup online.  I also really love their iphone app.  The only issue I've had is sensitivity with the motion detectors and my pets.  After speaking with Simplisafe Customer Service, I was able to resolve the issue. I would recommend SimpliSafe to anyone looking for a common sense approach to home security.

Researched home security systems and found FrontPoint to be very highly rated.  They provide the equipment, you install it yourself, and they monitor (through a third-party provider).  Best alternative out there.  All wireless.  Uses cell communications instead of phone or cable, which can be cut.  One of only a few offering crash & smash protection, which is essential.  Equipment is reasonable, about $250 in my case.  Basic monitoring is $35/month.  Need upgraded monitoring, which is $43/month, for crash & smash (also includes a neat smartphone app for operating/monitoring the system remotely).  Installation was easy.  Equipment is GE/high quality.  Had a bad sensor; replaced with a different type, which didn't work out, so replaced with same type and so far, so good.  Great customer support; hold times are nominal and representatives are very helpful.  Very satisfied.

Excellent.  I haven't had an issue since.   They call quickly if an alarm goes off.  I referred my son and neighbor to FrontPoint.

AUniversal Electric Inc
They were very good and got into some tricky places to mount the cameras and pull the cables. Great work and very professional. This is a good company. The two man crew did very well on a tough job accessing the area via the attic and getting the cables to the monitoring system. They provided me the estimate and were at the low end of the estimate for the install. Fast in responding to the request for an estimate too. Rick and his crew are top notch. I would hire them again for any electrical job and so should you.

It went horrible.  I have never written a poor review about any company I have dealt with until now.  The owner Troy Baumert is nothing short of a flake.  I utilized his company while building a new home.  Here is a short list of my complaints. - Was not timely in getting bid to me - I did walk thru with Troy telling him what I want.  After the prewire was provided I came to the house and found mistakes - After the mistakes were supposedly fixed I came back and found more mistakes. - Once the house was finished Troy sent his tech out to do the finishing touches.  The tech worked the first day but couldn't finish. - For two weeks Troy would give me a day the tech was going to come back but each day no one showed up.  Troy didn't call to tell me no one was coming.  I had to call him and then he would tell me that no one was coming. - It got to the point I wouldn't try and schedule anything with him I wanted my builder to handle it.  Well Troy is still flaking out.  - The security camera program I am using isn't working.  It took two weeks and the builder calling to get someone to come out. - Troy wouldn't even respond to (polite) emails requesting assistance. - As of today (11/4/13) the program still isn't working.( I have been living in my house nearly 2 months now.) 7 days ago I told troy in a email that it wasn't working.  He finally responded and said he would call me and set something up.  4 days later I emailed again because he didn't call.  The builder called him last week and yet Troy still isn't calling to fix the problem.   - Troy is selling products that his installers don't even know how to use.  Troy certainly doesn't know how to use them.   The part I really don't understand is yes he has my money and I have little or no recourse but yet he is acting like a complete flake in front of the builder who could actually give him more jobs.  I am not a difficult customer to get a long with.  I am not picky or rude.  I just want the product I paid over 5k on to work.  Troy isn't fixing his product and he clearly doesn't care that I am an unhappy customer.  I do not recommend that you use his services. Sometimes businesses make a mistake but clearly his mindset of not caring and not responding shows a much bigger problem. I hope this helps someone else not go thru the frustration that I have been subjected to since I started working with Troy

I purchased the product and then installed them myself. I chose to not sign up for their monthly service.

We purchased a security system for our rental house.  The setup was easy, it did not take long to figure out what worked and what didn't.  The 40lb dog DID set off the motion detector so that is something they need to work through. They ran it without it being connected to the service center for a while to make sure they were doing everything correctly.  Then connected to the service center but something wasn't working.  They called support (one problem is that support has banker hours, very hard for working people to call in).  Support was very helpful and figured out what was going on and has sent a new card for the base and a new remote.  They are very responsive and helpful. Will update when we have used it a couple of months.

They gave me an incredible deal, they sent me all the necessary pieces that other companies tried charging me $900 for. It is a great system. They have great customer service. I am really happy with the system.

FVivint Inc
I had 2 different houses using their services, when both started having issues, I called technical support, and they wanted to charge me to have someone come out, this seemed stupid, but I limped along. One day another provider comes to the door, and I thought this would be a good time to upgrade my system and get some new equipment. When he looked at my system, he said "oh we are using the same stuff, you just need a new cell chip to fix your problems, they should provide that for free". At this point I went ahead and ordered the stuff for the new house, and tried to cancel Vivint. at this point, vivint tells me that they have a 30 day cancellation policy. Ok, that makes sense, you often pay 30 days in advance. So I cancel, it took almost 2 months to get the stuff cancelled. I should have cancelled the other house right then and there. However, I tried to get Vivint to get the stuff upgraded, I no longer remember if we got it fixed, or if I had to pay for the person to come out. I do remember arguing with them a lot, trying to get anyone out there. I got the distinct impression that they would do anything to avoid sending someone out. A few months later, I moved, and both house holds were combined into one. Knowing that vivint was going to be painful to cancel, we told them that no one would be in the house after May 1. Later, on April 20, we submitted the 30day cancellation notice. The card was billed on April 15th. On May 15th, they ran another full price bill. I tried to call customer service, rather than actually trying to work with me, they wanted to rely on their policy. This amounts to theft, charging for 30days of service, for which they would only serve 5 under their contract, but of course since there was nothing to monitor after the 1st, they had already gotten 15days worth of free money since there is no one at that residence to actually monitor the alarm for.
