A pleasure to do business with
“We recently had an alarm system installed by Alarming Ideas, and it was a pleasure doing business with them. Bob came to our home, did an assessment of our needs, and explained in detail what would work for us without any pushy sales pitches. The technicians showed up on time, were very courteous, neat, and explained very clearly the programming of the system. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for security and peace of mind.”
“Outstanding service and work ethic. With a local company I know I can call and get a real person when I have questions. I would advise anyone who is considering security for their home or business to consider this company. They offer everything a big box company could offer and I know more home and family are protected . Really excellent business to work with.”
Always on time
“I highly recommend Alarming Ideas for all your home or business security. They came right to my house very quickly to give a “ballpark” quote, and when I got the proposal the quote was very accurate. I set up an appointment for the install, and they were right on time and finished and explained everything I needed to know before they left. After they left I looked at their work and was very surprised at how neat and perfect everything was. If your looking for home security from trustworthy people, look no further than Alarming Ideas!”
