Local Home Security Reviews

We researched alarm companies when we moved into our current house through the BBB. We spoke with ADT but we decided not to go with them after more research. We went with Protection 1 and have been very happy. Whenever we have set off the alarm ourselves accidentally, they call very quickly and whenever we have interacted with them, they have been very professional. I would highly recommend this company.
