Recent Review: I personally think this is the best deal out there when it comes to monitoring your home via a security system. If you pay for the whole year it costs about 8.95 a month or 14.95 a month if you pay month by month. There is no contract! The reason they are so cheap is that you buy the monitoring equipment yourself either through them or through another company, and they do the monitoring of it. Most other companies give you some equipment but then you have to pay $40 a month for the next three years or some lengthy contract like that! NextAlarm lets you arm and disarm via the Internet, and provides excellent customer service. I highly recommend it!

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.

ATri State Security Inc
Based on a recommendation from my Uncle, who is retiring from his own security company, we hired John from Tri State Security to add some upgrades and complete the activation on an existing system, installed by my Uncle. We had quoted 3 different companies and chose John based on his availability and on his straight-forward pricing. The work was completed yesterday and we could not be happier with the service John provided! He came to our home thoroughly prepared and he was incredibly knowledgeable with solutions for all of our concerns. The estimate he gave when I first called him was very reasonable and consistent with what my Uncle told me to expect. Even when we ran into some issues, and John had to spend considerably more time on the system (by several hours!) he held true to what he quoted us. In addition, he was respectful of the work done by my uncle, even though it might not have been exactly how he would have done it. He was honest and up-front with his hourly rate, equipment costs, monitoring service costs, and he gave us clear expectations of the cost of any future service calls (which I found all to be reasonable). He stayed late and worked tirelessly to test out the system and make sure everything was working exactly as it should before he left our home. He even spent extra time programming descriptions for each zone so I didn't have continuously reference a "cheat sheet" I had created previously. I would fully recommend John to anyone in the market for a security system.

My complaints begin when I cancelled my service. I did not agree to a Cancellation Fee.  I was informed of the existence of this fee of course after an ADT Employee made a persistent but failed attempt to get me to transfer service to my new address following a request to cancel service on September 12, 2014. I also immediately contacted the salesperson who sold me the system, Steve Henrickson out of the office in Oak Brook, IL.  I was pleased with the fact that he responded within less than 24 hours.  However, he blamed me for not knowing about this cancellation charge, claiming that I should have known since I asked so many questions.  By the way my questions were mostly regarding functionality.  I was quite disappointed with how I was treated.  He also stated that ADT has long contract periods because, ?it takes 2 years for ADT to just break even; without this cancellation fee ADT would be out of business.?  I doubt that statement is true, particularly in my case, since I paid $1,000 for the installation.  After all this, he tried to sell me another system and tried to get me to give him a reference where he could sell a new owner on the service.  I asked him to send me a copy of the actual contract I signed; I no longer have a copy.  I requested a copy of the contract but he said I would have to contact corporate. Following my conversation with Steve Henrickson on Saturday, September 13, 2014, I continued to contact ADT on multiple occasions over the next few weeks to provide a copy of the original contract with my signature that was executed when I signed up for the system.  Next thing I know, I was contacted by a debt collection agency.  As of November 8, 2015, I am still disputing this debt, as the debt continues to be transferred/sold to other debt collection agencies.  No one seems to be able to produce this contract with my signature to verify that this is valid. Who knows?  Maybe the collection attempts will continue for many years to come.  I am the kind of person who pays all of my debts, and this is the first time I have ever had to deal with a collection agency.  As a result of how I was treated, I will definitely never use or recommend ADT again.

I received my sensors in about a week and was able to install the entire system in less than an hour.  This was very good considering I had multiple door and window sensors, glass break sensors, motion detectors, smoke and Carbon Monoxide sensors, and the panel.  I called the company to get it set up and they were extremely helpful.  I had an issue with one of the glass break sensors that was not working and they overnighted me a replacement at no charge.  After the system was up and running and I recieved instrucions on how to use it, we were pretty much done.  They system is very easy to use and with the interactive monitoring, I can set up all types of notices.  I can even set it to send me an e-mail or text message if the alarm is not DISARMED at a certain time so I know if my daughter has not made it home from school, etc.  I later added some addtional sensors and an indoor camera and had no problem expanding on my initial system.  The only complaint that I have with the entire system is that the camera needs allot of light to work and is useless in the dark.  It is nice that is will record video clips when there is an alarm, but if someone breaks into your house at night or on a cloudy day, you aren't going to see much unless you leave your lights on.  I love the cellular monitoring, but I did have to get an AT&T card as the one that came with the system (Nextel I think) did not have reliable service.  Again, they were very helpful and sent the new card at no charge and walked me through installing it, which was very easy.  It was nice that the system tells you when there is a problem with any of the sensors or with connectivity though.  It will even text me when the power goes out!  On top of all this, my insurance company gave me a 10% discount on my homeowners policy once I gave them a letter from Frontpoint showing that I had monitored service.  Overall I really love this system and would highly recommend it to anyone who is considering a home security system.

He wanted a lot of money upfront ($18,000).  I told him that the only way I would give him any money up front was if it was for materials.  He stated that he had $15,000 in materials for the job.  At the time, I naively agreed to give him $15,000 upfront.  He requested that it be sent in small checks of $5,000 or less because Bank of America would freeze the money in his account for a few weeks and it would delay project progress.  This was the first of many lies that he would feed me during the project.  As I found out later, all payments I made to him were cashed at a currency exchange!!!  Can you believe it?! He cashed my checks for my project at the currency exchange (unfortunately I did not realize this until later). August 2012 - I signed the contract on August 10, 2012.  Prior to the project beginning, I installed an ADT system to secure the property and monitor activity at the property.  I get emails every time the doors open and close, which was very useful for me, since I live about 1.5 hours from the project.  The project seemed to get off to a very good start.  His guys were there every day for about a week or so and seemed to be making good progress by the end of August. September 2012 - I visited the site mid September and noticed that nothing had really been done since my last visit in August.  I asked Andrew why nothing had been done.  He replied that his guys had been there almost every day for the past several weeks.  I checked the security system records and found that this was simply not true; the security system confirmed that there was very little activity during this period.  Then on September 22, 2012, he requests $26,000 more upfront so that he can "keep going on the project and buy materials".  I was really p*****.  I asked what about the $15,000?  He said he spent it doing plaster prep.  In the end he only had a receipt for $4,000 in kitchen cabinets.  He lied to me and stated that the plumber needed $6,000 just to show up to the project and the electrician needed $7,000 just to show up because the project was so far.  I agreed to another 17,000 ($4,000 for him) so that materials could be purchased and so more work could be done.  The project was beginning to run behind and I didn't want to jeapordize October completion. October 2012 - Not much was happening.  I visited the property on the morning of October 23, 2013, only to find a stop work order on the door!!  I was furious.  At this point, we were near the end of October 2012 and I find that no permits have been pulled for the work (electrical or plumbing).  The plumber started working without a permit.  I talked to Andrew and he empathized with me and said he was going to take care of it.  He said he "sweet talked the inspector" and that all of his paperwork was in order.  Mind you at this point, he still hadn't brought the electrician on board.  And he had no idea how he was going to get the sewer work done. Novermber 2012 - Hardly anything happened still at this point, other than him cashing one of my checks ($7,000 of the $17,000 I released to him at the end of September)   April 2013 - As it turns out he mismeasured the kitchen by a whole foot and the cabinets did not fit, but I had to find out about this 6 months later from one of his subs who wasn't getting paid.
