We were always treated rudely and the problem was never resolved. Larry was extremely rude to the point I would no longer deal with his attitude at which point my husband contacted him.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Awful company, awful service. Larry is very rude and treats you with no respect. If you are looking for a security company DO NOT go with SOS. Run far far away. Our alarm would go off and no one would ever call to make sure things were okay. Also, problems with their equipment working properly. After 2 years with this company and nothing but trouble we are now happy to have gotten rid of ALL of their equipment and have a new company that treats you with respect and has A+ service!
