    SimpliSafe Home Security
    No issues to report.  System works as advertised.  Worked well for me since it's wireless and I have no easy way to install a wired alarm system.  Monthly monitoring fees are also reasonable compared to competition.

    Frontpoint
    I was very happy with FrontPoint.  The person I spoke with on several occasions and exchanged emails with was very knowledgeable and customer focused.  There was no pressure to get me to buy but definitely a lot of effort to make sure I got all my questions answered.  FrontPoint was also willing to work with me on the price of the equipment since I needed a fairly extensive setup.  I know the equipment that FrontPoint uses is high quality so I was ready to go choose them as my security provider.  Unfortunately, the one thing that changed my mind actually has nothing to do with FrontPoint but it's a feature of the equipment they use.  The window/door sensors and magnets need to be quite close together (1/4 inch) to work properly.  That would mean for me that I would not be able to easily install the 6 door sensors that I needed without modifications to my door casing.  However, if that detail is not a problem for others, then I would highly recommend FrontPoint.

    Livewatch Security
    SafeMart was one of several companies I researched thoroughly to purchase a wireless home security system.  I really liked SafeMart but went with someone else primarily due to a technical aspect with the equipment.  The door/window sensor and magnet need to be quite close together (no more than 1/4 inch) in order to work properly.  I did not want to have to modify my door casing to make this work so this ended up driving my decision.  However, in terms of price (both equipment and fees), SafeMart is quite competitive.  The person I worked with on several occasions was very knowledgeable, answered all my questions, and was willing to work with me on giving me a good deal.  Again, if it was not for the small "shortcoming" of the sensors, I would have selected SafeMart.

    SimpliSafe Home Security
    I took my time researching various providers of wireless 24/7 alarm systems.  In the end, I selected SimpliSafe for several reasons.  First, the alarm system and the company itself had good reviews.  In my interactions with SimpliSafe, everyone was always professional and answered all my questions.  They took the time to hear me out and I never felt rushed or pressured to buy.  Their prices for the alarm components, especially with the additional 10% discount through Angie's list, are very reasonable for a good quality system.  Yes, you can get an alarm system somewhere else for less but you will end up paying more due to the length of the contract (typically 3 years) and higher monthly fees.  With SimpliSafe, it really is simple with no gimmicks.  Just buy what you need, no long-term contracts, and choose your level of monitoring, which costs less than all the other alarm companies I researched.  The equipment is very easy to install and works as well as I expected.  One aspect of their equipment sealed the deal for me - the door/window sensors and magnets can be separated up to 2 full inches.  Typically, with others, it might be as little as 1/4 of an inch.  This limits your installation options, especially with typical, molded door casing.  In my case, I really needed that separation or else I would need to chisel out a flat spot in my casing for the sensor or magnet.  Everything worked out of the box and I was up and running in no time.  I highly recommend SimpliSafe to anyone considering an alarm system.

    LifeShield Home Security
    At first, LifeShield looked appealing to me and was one of four companies I researched.  Their equipment has one of the lowest up front costs.  However, the only way they can do that is to lock you in a contract of up to 5 years.  Although the monthly fees are reasonable, over the course of 5 years, the total cost of the alarm (equipment and fess) end up being no bargain.  In addition to that, the people I dealt with did not leave a good impression on me.  On a couple of occasions, when I called I ended up with someone who had no clue and was not able to answer even simple questions.  Then when I asked to be transferred to someone else, I ended up with what seemed like a used car salesman who was just after closing the sale.  I felt pressured and when I continued to ask more questions, he was impatient, and started losing interest.  In the end I did enough research to conclude that LifeShield was not for me.

    Kohring Electric
    Mike Kohring was great.  He arrived on time.  He worked hard for many hours over two days (about 20 hours).  He fixed problems that other electricians did not understand.  He is very competent.  He is friendly.  He listens to what you want and them immediately works on it.  We were very happy with Mike's electrical work for us.  We would hire him again.

    ALLIED CENTRAL SECURITY & ALARM
    SINCE THE CONTRACT WAS SIGNED THIS COMPANY HAS BECOME VERY LAZY. FOR EVERY APPOINTMENT, THEY ARE TYPICALLY 1-2 HOURS LATE, AND RECENTLY HAVE STOPPED SHOWING UP AT ALL. I PUT IN A REQUEST FOR SOME UPGRADES BACK IN JULY AND MR. SEMINARY HAS SCHEDULED AND FAILED TO SHOW UP AT FOUR SEPARATE APPOINTMENTS. GENERALLY A WEEK AFTER THE APPOINTMENT WE'LL GET A CALL FROM HIM WITH A DIFFERENT EXCUSE (TIME CONFLICTS, STAFF PROBLEMS, FAMILY PROBLEMS, ETC.), BUT I HAVE ALREADY LOST ALL PATIENCE WITH THIS SO-CALLED SERVICE. THEREFORE, I'M POSTING THIS REVIEW HOPEFULLY TO PROTECT OTHER PEOPLE FROM BECOMING INVOLVED WITH THIS LOUSY COMPANY. LOOK ELSEWHERE AND FIND SOMEONE WHO IS ACTUALLY WILLING TO WORK.
