  • Wave Connects
    5.0
    The bottom line – If you’re looking for a security system, go with WaveConnects. You won’t be disappointed. The detail – We’ve had a couple different security systems at our house over the many years we’ve owned it. Our initial system was installed during a remodel. Since walls were being opened, it was a wired (not wireless) system. Years later we had ADT update our system. Their system was fine, but they clearly only had one way of doing things: wireless. They neither bothered to use any of our wired sensors, nor installed any wired sensors of their own. Since ADT’s install, we’ve retrofit our home with automation/integration. Through our Savant app (and through our Savant handheld remotes), our entire house can be controlled: Lighting, Music, Cameras, Doorbells, Doors, Thermostats, and Pool. All, that is, except for the ADT security system (which is, apparently, proprietary and won’t play nicely with automation systems other than their own). So, I opted to install a security system compatible with Savant. Savant highly recommends the Elk Security System, so that’s what I insisted on having. After calling around, it was clear to me that most security companies will install only one (maybe two) systems. They were uninterested in taking requests. Without batting an eye, though, WaveConnects stepped up to the plate. They had never installed Elk, but were willing to give it a go. I had anticipated there being issues as a) there are always issues with electronics (i.e., nothing is truly plug-n-play); and b) WaveConnects had never installed an Elk System. To my surprise, no issues arose at all. The install went smoothly, quickly, and without incident. Further, contracting with WaveConnects was efficient, scheduling was easy, and Cory (the installer) actually showed-up early. Who does that? Cory, in fact, was incredibly professional and incredibly easy to work with. We loved Cory! He also didn’t cut any corners with the install. What do I mean by that? First, he found every wire from our original install, and he used those for sensors, when possible (instead of opting for wireless). Second, he found ways to run wired sensors to places we did not have any wire, only using wireless sensors where it made sense. Third, he made thoughtful recommendations for novel sensors where appropriate (heat sensors, flood sensors, glass break sensors, motion sensors). Again, go with WaveConnects. You won’t be disappointed

  • Low Voltage Components
    5.0
    David Perfito of Low Voltage Components helped me build a mesh network on my brand new million dollar house from the ground up, when my home was just studs. David is an independent thinker; he gets around problems with creativity, efficiency and care for my home, while engineering very complex components for a clean and effective look, no hanging wires, no mistakes and no hassles. He helped me complete a $30,000 dream garage with a high-end 55” wall-mounted Sony TV, Apple monitor for Zoom meetings and Logi HD cam for virtual work out sessions with my trainer and my son’s Sensei in Mixed Martial Arts. More important than getting the job done, I can trust David Perfito in my home with my family. He is an honorable U.S. Veteran and his knowledge and services are very reasonably priced. I paid him more for my job because he got it done right the first time and he never compromises on safety, quality and the aesthetics. David is a professional

  • ADT

    Happy new home alarm customer with ADT! Would like to mention that we worked with Danny. Upgraded our old security system that came with the house we bought a few years back. Figured this would be a long expensive project, but we were wrong.

  • Bay Alarm
    5.0
    The Bay Alarm Company has provided me great service for years and their personnel, e.g., Michael Hilway, are top notch. No need to read the following long paragraph unless you want to understand why I make that statement. I had an alarm system installed at my residence by the San Diego Alarm Company (SDA) in November of 1996. SDA was eventually bought out by the Bay Alarm Company in May, 2014. SDA and Bay Alarm provided a seamless transition from the SDA alarm monitoring center in San Diego to the Bay Alarm monitoring center in Northern California. Bay Alarm upgraded my alarm system in November 2017 and has continuously provided courteous and professional service. Bay Alarm recently notified me that Verizon and AT&T would be discontinuing their 3G service and that I would need to upgrade my alarm panel cellular communicator. They offered me several reasonable upgrade options. I figured it might be about time to consider getting a new alarm system and requested ADT provide me with a proposal. I carefully performed an analysis of the pros and cons of the new ADT system as compared to staying with Bay Alarm. I decided to stay with Bay Alarm for multiple reasons. I contacted Bay Alarm and requested they upgrade my alarm panel cellular communicator and it was upgraded on May 24, 2021. A few days later my alarm system had problems communicating with the Bay Alarm monitoring center. I called Bay Alarm and they quickly arranged to have a lead technician come to my residence at my convenience to troubleshoot the problem and repair it. The service technician was Michael Hilway and he was able to quickly identify the problem and resolve the issue. The problem turned out that a Verizon 4G LTE Network Extender I was using was causing the problem. I disconnected the device and I have not had a communications problem with the Bay Alarm communications center since that time. Michael noticed the Verizon cellular signal was marginal and remotely monitored the signal over the following week to ensure I would not have a communications problem. I am a retired electronics engineer and I was impressed with the technical expertise of Michael Hilway, his thoroughness, and his professionalism. Michael Hilway is an asset to the Bay Alarm Company and I am glad I kept Bay Alarm as my remote alarm monitoring company because of personnel like Michael. I recommend the Bay Alarm Company to anybody considering installing an alarm system with remote monitoring

    ADT Authorized Premier Provider installed my new security system. I spoke with them on the phone two days prior and went through the quote process. Were pleased with the promotion offered and the scheduling availability. The wireless keyfabs are convenient to put on your car key ring so you can control your alarm when you’re pulling in and out of the driveway

  • ADT
    5.0
    It was a challenge finding a security company that also sold and monitored smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Fortunately, we found that ADT does both. Went forward with getting setup with their security system and also added on the above mentioned items for a premium package. Would recommend to our friends, family, and neighbors

  • ADT
    5.0
    Had a break in over night where I work, so got me thinking about getting security for my house. Saw lots of different ads and promotions out there, but ultimately gave ADT a call. I felt like it would be silly not to consider the biggest brand in the business. Got their entry level package, which monitors all of my doors and windows. The tech gave us an extra ADT sign so we can have one at our front door and at our back door

  • I'll Handle IT
    5.0
    Dave is very responsive and and very knowledgeable. He fixed my closet door and I have hired him to do a lot more work for me. I know he is good because he definitely keeps busy with multiple repair jobs. If you want something done go to the busy person. They find way to make it happen.
