Protection 1 Saved Our Lives!
Smoke detectors are not what woke us up. It was the alarm from the house. It was so loud. If the smoke detectors hadn’t gone off and the Protection 1 alarm system hadn’t woken us up, I don’t think we would have been alive,” Kim recalled. “So I called Scott Krause the next day and told him, ‘I just want to let you know that, thank you, you saved my life.’

Protection 1 Is a GREAT Company!
Friends of ours use Protection 1 in the house they live in now, have used them in the past as well, and gave them a glowing review. When the Protection 1 sales person and sales manager came to the house to meet with us, not only did they present themselves professionally, they were also sincere and genuine, making us feel like they really cared about how Protection 1 could meet our needs, not just about “getting the sale”. They made sure they understood what our concerns were and explained everything about the program and the company in terms of how we could work together to achieve our ultimate goal–the protection of our home. After meeting with them, we cancelled the appointment we had scheduled with another home security company … and signed on with Protection 1 that same day.
My husband made the appointment with the main office for the installer to come out and said the person he spoke with was very nice and extremely helpful in scheduling the install to best fit our crazy schedule! The installer was awesome! Again, very professional, but genuine and so easy to work with. We had to make a few decisions before the technician could begin the install, and he was very patient as we politely “discussed” those decisions! :) We actually made a couple of changes to the install (added a few more sensors here and there, etc.) and he was extremely helpful and flexible. The install went very smoothly and he did a GREAT job! Our Protection 1 sales person stopped by just to make sure everything was on track and to answer any questions we had. Again, we really felt like he cared that we were happy and comfortable with the decision to move forward with Protection 1.
Since the install about a week ago, my husband called the main office with a couple of questions about the system and the customer service person he spoke with was very helpful. The DVD our technician gave us the day of the install was interesting and user-friendly.
All the employees we met and spoke with were so pleasant and represented Protection 1 extremely well. We’re very happy with the system and will definitely refer Protection 1 to others.
One last thing: our friends have the old version of the logo on their window stickers and outdoor signs. The new logo is totally awesome, and our stickers and signs are 100% better than theirs! :) Seriously, the new design is truly an improvement over the old one. We’re proud to have anyone that comes to the house or walk by see the stickers and signs, and know we decided to work with THE BEST home security company!
Do you need a security system at your house? We can refer you to a great company … ! :)

Mobile Control Is Amazing
Wow—mobile control how did we ever do without without this technology. I have been with Protection 1 for over 7 years and just found out that they had a product available that would make my life style easy do to our demanding work and travel schedules. Mobile control allowed us to have contractors, our house keeper, and even family members enter our home without ever giving a key or alarm code to anyone. I truly have control on who comes and goes at all times. The couple of dollars extra a month not only gave us piece of mind but assures me that now my home is protected and under my control.

A Better Choice for Me!
Thanks for your professional response to my equipment problem. During this and other calls your company has reinforced the reasons I fired [my previous home security company] and went with Protection 1. The fact that your people show up, listen and act in a manner commensurate with assuring customer satisfaction are enough to keep me coming back. I couldn’t even get [my previous home security company] out to the house for repairs and upgrades despite years of faithfully paying my bill. Your people could give seminars to American businesses on customer service. You are indeed a “better choice” for me.

It Has Been a Pleasure Working with Protection 1
The service tech who came to our office yesterday was exceptional. He was on time, courteous and never disturbed anyone in the office. But that is not why I’m writing you. After quickly getting into our systems box, he knew exactly what he needed to do, pinpointed a recurring problem, which we’ve had other technicians look at but did not find a solution nor educate us on the way the system was connected. He took the time, explained the problem, the system hook up and was done quickly. He was professional and polite and a pleasure to have in our office. You are very fortunate to have an employee like this. Especially in this day & age where customer service lacks the integrity it once was. It has been a pleasure working with Protection 1. Thank you!

An Excellent Example
The situation with our security system was easily addressed by the dispatched technician. He has serviced our system previously and was then, as well as this last visit, very professional, courteous, and efficient in his work. We hope you value his experience and representation of your company, as we feel he is an excellent example of what customers should expect from a quality company, such as yours.

We Will All Sleep Much Better Tonight!
I would like to thank you very much for adjusting the technician’s schedule and having him at my home so early this morning! You have no idea how very much that was appreciated. Your customer service and attention is highly regarded. I also was impressed with the email identifying the technician who would be coming to my home. I did recognize him from a previous call and remembered him as being professional and pleasant, as he was again today. Thank you again for fixing our "beeping alarm" as quickly as you did. We will all sleep much better tonight!

Excellent Service, Courteous Technician
Thank you Protection 1 for the excellent service and courteous technician you sent to take care of my alarm system. All too often we look at the problem and blame the other guy … and we don’t take the time to thank the folks who appreciate our patronage and take care of the problems. I believe that when service is provided and the technician is honestly concerned about the quality of his work, it is important to tell you, the folks who have had the good sense to find quality personel and are concerned about the service you provide, deserve to be thanked. I appreciate and I thank you.

Tech Was Very Friendly and Caring Person
I got very good service and was doing a telephone surveyors when we got cut off but one of the question I did get was the tech on time. He was a really very friendly and caring person. Really do like my Protecton 1 and wish other companies would just leave me alone. The people that answer the telphone is very nice too.

You Have Such Good Technicians
Just wanted you to know that I really appreciate you sending Christopher out to my residence to replace my siren. He was very professional as well as kind. I have cats and he was concerned they would become overly frightened with testing the system. It is wonderful to know you have such good technicians.

He Fixed the Problem, and He Did It Quickly
Our technician, Brock Hanson, is awesome. He’s been here before. He knows what he’s doing, he fixed the problem, and he did it quickly. And he’s nice.I tried taking the phone survey but the connection dropped. Also, while I’m writing, the people who answer the phone service calls are terrific as well. Whatever tools you’re using to keep your employees motivated, please do not stop.

Getting the Appointment Was Very Easy and Quick
I can’t tell you how impressed I’ve been with your whole appointment set-up. Getting the appointment was very easy and quick. I loved getting the confirmation e-mail and the follow-up call to confirm the appointment. The best thing was the call from Kenneth that he was on his way. He showed up very nicely dressed with a big smile on his face. He was professional and efficient. Kenneth is a keeper!! Thanks for having a process in place for us, your customer, and thanks for employing such lovely young men like Kenneth Meyers!!

Since becoming a client 3 years ago I’ve had nothing but amazing experiences with this company and its employees. The telephone response time is fantastic.
Your company has reinforced the reasons I fired the other guys and went with Protection 1. Your people could give seminars to American businesses on customer service!
In a nutshell, we see Protection 1 as part of our family now—who cares about our security and ensures the safety of our family, most importantly our nine month old son. Thank you for being a company that cares about their customers.
[S]o far everything is great, and each service technician is always very nice.
