Excellent! Jobie, the owner and the guy who worked on our home, is the REAL DEAL. He was there when he said he would be. He adjusted the cost to our budget, and threw in multiple items. He and his workmen were punctual, and professional. He gave us a first class system that my wife, Benay, and I can be comfortable with. I would not hesitate to recommend them for anyone needing a first class system...

Excellent. Friendly Security is one of the top three service/repair companies I have worked with in San Antonio. Other companies have been good (or sometimes bad) but Friendly is in a top-tier league of their own. They are excellent. They exceed expectations. Friendly Security is an exceedingly well-run company with excellent customer service and support in the office and field. Judy in the office...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We had many windows and two doors replaced due to the hail storms in April 2016. Our then alarm company, Monitronics, told me they did not need to be part of the install and could come in after the install and get the alarm system working with the new windows and doors. WRONG! I tried to work with Monitronics to no avail. I finally cancelled service with them and found Friendly Security through Angies List. I contracted Friendly to repair the existing system and add additional smoke alarms. We have a large house and part of the price included adding sensors and a smoke alarm to an out building. My existing system does not monitor my smoke alarms. Monitronics told me they could only monitor four smoke alarms which is not enough for our house. Friendly was able to monitor as many as I needed.

The old system was totally out of date and so a new one had to be installed, but all the original points of contact in the doors and windows could still be used so I imagine it was less involved than if it was being done from scratch.  I also decided to spend some extra money to have four smoke detectors wired into the house wiring. Joby went over all the details of what my needs were (for example...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I had a non-working old security system that was original to my 30-year old house.  After I was burglarized I decided to re-activate the system or replace it.  Joby Gray, the owner, came and did an evaluation and made a bid to do the job.  I was so impressed with him I did not bother getting other estimates.  He and an installer came and completed the work efficiently and neatly.
