Our Customers Say

Rated 5 Stars!“A quick note of thanks and feedback on my first experience with your company for my 4G upgrade – in a word, OUTSTANDING! Your tech Ben is an excellent representative of your company. He was on time (early actually), called ahead while enroute to my location, professional appearance, respectful of me and my home, very knowledgeable, and answered all questions. Please pass along my feedback to him. He is an asset to your company. As you know we came over from…so I didn’t necessarily choose Alarm Engineering, but yesterday’s service call certainly gave me no reason to look anywhere else.”

“…And BTW Lillian has been incredibly helpful, accommodating (and patient!) in trying to schedule this long (my fault) service.”
