  • Replace existing house alarm system and cameras to front and back of property.

    10Verified Review

    Ian visited our home and from the outset came across as a professional man with a wealth of experience in this area. No sales pitch just straight talking explaining pro’s and con’s of various cameras. Gave what I felt was a good quote for work required. Andy came to fit the new system and cameras. A very pleasant young man who provided an excellent service during the installation. No mess and left area clean and tidy. Given a good explanation of the alarm system after the installation and setting up apps on our phones. Highly recommend this company if you want a good job done well.
