Joe was excellent - great communication! I would like to talk to Joe about everything. Every time I call he is very nice and doesn't try to rush you. Joe answered all of my questions. Thanks so much!

Marie Bedford, CA

I would like to commend Scott for outstanding customer support!! He walked me through the replacement of several connectors and updated and tested all system connections. Very thorough and patient. THANK YOU!

Myra San Diego, CA

Joe was so helpful, informative and patient in helping me install my additional sensors. He not only made sure that the sensors were working well, but also made sure that my security system was properly set up by making sure the previous sensors installed were working properly. He walked me through each step so patiently and was soooo helpful. I have to still install some more sensors and for sure I am going to call him for his help.
