I HIGHLY recommend Central Security and Russell Schmidt.
To determine the best company to monitor our home, we had several companies give us bids for a home alarm system. Dyezz Surveillence gave us a bid of $3100 just to set up the system, because they insisted our original 1992 system and wiring were “OBSOLETE.” and for $3100 that did not even secure the upstairs. It seems Dyezz lied to us.
Russell, on the other hand, came in and within 5 minutes knew our house was already wired properly, that he just needed to check the contacts and replace the 1992 box with a cellular system. We also asked for an extra motion detector, keypad, and glass break sensor. His total cost? $400. The other companies who gave us bids sent creepy salesmen who tried to upsell us for things we did not need, but Russell is a veteran, a hard worker, efficient, trustworthy, and reliable. Our price was based on things WE asked for, not what he tried to upsell.
We had one issue where a 1992 contact wire was spliced years before we bought the house, and Russell came out and fixed it for us–the next day . . . at no charge.
So with Dyezz it would have been $3100 for the initial setup and $30 a month for monitoring, securing only the downstairs. With Russell and Central Security, our system was $400 for the initial setup and $30 a month for monitoring, securing the whole house.
