  • Alarm Servicing

    10Verified Review

    We had our annual alarm inspection/servicing carried out by Stuart from Carter Security. He was punctual, tidy and polite. I had a few questions regarding upgrading the alarm and he was happy to explain what could be done with the system we currently have. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Carter Security based on our experiences over the years we’ve been using them.

  • New alarm system

    10Verified Review

    Carter Security have maintained our alarm for several years but we decided to upgrade the system. The whole team were fantastic throughout - from providing a detailed quote quickly, to scheduling in the work promptly, to carrying out the installation quickly and efficiently. Nothing was too much trouble for the team - who were all wonderful to deal with. I would really recommend Carter. We love our new alarm and the new app that accompanies it - a great product.
