Rated 4.7 out of 5 stars based on over 6 Protect America Ohio Customer Reviews

My Live Technical support person was Vanessa. She was able to answer all my questions, order sensors, and change my address. She was well informed and professional. I am very satisfied with alarm system. I really like the ability to check and/or change my system status online.

Lisa Columbus, OH

I needed to install a window security system. Doug was very patient and helpful throughout the process. He did not rush, promoting excellent customer service acknowledging it was a pleasure to have me as a customer. Lacey answered my questions and took the time to explain all concerns and answer questions about the system. Both employees exemplify how a customer should be treated! Outstanding customer service!!!
