Braintree Resident Reaches Out To American Alarm To Help With False Alarms
A new customer of ours in Braintree wanted to protect their family and the major investment in their beautiful colonial home. The home had a security system previously installed by another company, but it was not working well.
The biggest problem facing home security systems today is chronic false alarms, and that’s what was happening here. The other company’s system was simply not sufficiently reliable and was prone to false alarms.
After researching the market, and learning of American Alarm’s reputation for top technology and customer service, this customer asked us to take over and upgrade their home security system. We did so, and also installed a digital radio back-up communicator, so this customer’s security system can send an alarm to our 24-Hour Security Command Center under any conditions, even if the power or phone lines to the home are cut.
The issue of chronic false alarms has been resolved, and this customer is comforted by knowing that their home and family are always protected.
